“AKAI S950 Digital Professional Midi Sampler – Vintage Sampler.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION . When I recently did a Ram test the fault “IC1H” appeared which shows that the RAM may be loose. According to Online information this may result in a glitch sounding on longer samples. I’ve not come across this.
The machine has Extra RAM inserted (see photo) and can sample for 20780ms on full 19,200Hz sample rate, and considerably longer on the lower rates (almost 40s on 10,000Hz)
It samples fine and I’ve been using it with my Logic Set up to “dirty up” drums/samples before recording it back into logic. I’ve not used floppy discs with it for years.
The machine is sold in this condition and no refunds will be given.”

Akai S950 with 2.25MB RAM

Friday Sep 25, 2020

“Akai S950 – 3U 12bit Rack/Desktop Sampler with New Screen and USB Upgrade – collection preferred

the best sounding sampler ever, hands down. the s950 has 8 individual outs, and be programmed to be stereo, has the most musical analogue filter, and the classic time stretch algorithm.

this one is fully maxed out (see pictures) and has an upgraded “vintage acid green” screen that is much brighter than the original, more viewable and will never fade. it also has a USB upgrade so you don’t have to worry about using outdated and slow floppy discs. as you can see, that is not the original data knob, but that can be purchased online easily if it concerns you. i personally prefer the metal feel.

the original sine wave patch was over-written before i bought this unit, so i sampled my own using a vinyl record with a weird tone on it. if you’d like to have the original tone back simply sample a C note sine wave into the TONE programme.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” For sale here is a stunning example of the Akai S950 12 bit sampler, a now legendary piece of studio history.

Famed for its classic time stretching capabilities which shaped an entire scene (Jungle) and hard hitting drums found in 90s HipHop and beyond.

This unit has the full ram and a white on black OLED display, comes with Original Box, Manual, power lead and rack ears.

Overall excellent condition with a few marks to the front top and some surface wear to the underside, but otherwise extremely clean and very well looked after.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This machine is responsible for entire genres of electronic music and even to this day there isn’t a software “bit crusher” or filter which can match that 12 bit sound.

This particular machine also has max RAM and the latest 1.2 firmware revision.

In very good overall condition with just some minor marking from being racked (see photos).

During my ownership I have serviced the machine which included servicing the original floppy disk drive. ”

“Akai S950 Sampler – Vintage sampler – good condition. Nice bright LCD screen though the pictures clearly indicate the item hasn’t been switched on. I’ve ordered a new cable to be included which will arrive by the end of the bidding. Works fine and screen is nice and bright but have lost the lead within the last month. It hasn’t been rarely used and stored well.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“AKAI S950 Digital Professional Midi Sampler – Vintage Sampler. Condition is Used. I have owned this sampler from new since the mid 1990’s.
You can see from the photos that it is in great condition for its age and everything works as it should apart from the light on the backlit display but it is still really clear as the contrast hasnt faded. Ive been using it with no problems.

I had the extra ram installed when i purchased it and 1024 kwords is displayed on bootup. ”

Akai S950 with Floppy Emulator

Wednesday Jul 8, 2020

“AKAI S950 Sampler, Gotek HXC USB Floppy Emulator. Good Working condition, front panel in good shape with a couple of small scratches (see pics), few small marks on top very minor rack rash on both ears, hardly noticeable when racked, 512kwords memory.

Display backlight like almost every piece of gear from this era is non existent, the display itself works fine.
(replacement EL backlights are available on eBay)

A HXC gotek USB floppy emulator has been fitted. A USB flash drive / memory stick is not supplied, you will receive a disc with the Images config files and HXC software, then just copy the images and config file to your own memory stick and you’re ready to go. Im currently looking for libraries online, whatever I find will be included on the disc.”

“akai s950 fitted with gotek floppy emulator, set up and working.

”ain’t exactly pretty, ain’t exactly small, but as samplers go, you could say she’s got it all!”

Not in pristine condition but working well, sounds fantastic but I need to loose some weight from my setup.

The gotek has an 8 gig drive with 30 disk images on it ready to use but will store up to 1000 images. The first image has some samples that were already on it and the second image has some of my own that I sampled into it to make sure it was working. The others are empty. Can also supply the original floppy drive if required which is also working. Please, local pickup only, it is heavy and I wouldn’t want to risk damage in the post.”

“AKAI S950 Sampler with original box, instruction manual , 200+ sample discs including Akai’s sample library and my own samples, original power cable and Akai discs including the operational guide disc all as show in the images.

This is my treasured Akai S950 which I have had from new. I bought it for my home studio set up which was hardly used as my commercial work was done at a different studio and I never found that I needed to work from home as much as I thought.

Hence it’s had minimum use and I mean minimum,must be less than 100 hours. I have shown close up photos around the control knobs to prove there are no visible signs of wear or use at all.

There are two what look like pen marks above the disc drive,but they have no effect on how it looks at all. There are a couple of slight marks on the edge due to it being mounted in a rack but this is not visible. It’s as if it came out of the box.

When I moved house my studio was packed away and it’s been in dry storage ever since.

This is a completely original vintage sampler with all of the original pieces and packaging. If your after one of these then genuinely you will not find a better example.

I am only selling it now as it seems crazy for it not to be used as it should be and I am funding another project so the money would come in handy.

Akai sent me the whole of their sample library on disc which is included and has classic sounds such as the TR808 and loss of strings, choirs etc to get you started.

The display is like new and I have photographed the green back light to show it works. The text is not visible in that image as the camera sensor would not pick it up but the text is dark and clear as new.

The hard disc has been tested and it all works perfectly.”
