Akai S950 with 2.25MB RAM

s950 “If you’re searching for this, then you know what it is. Used nowadays as a special effect, for when your drums need that mono 12bit crunch. Or to teach yourself some sampling discipline, making a track, just using the sampler. This sampler is fully expanded, which is needed, for it to be useful. It also has a new backlight, which makes it so much easier to see the screen. Unfortunately, the plug was left in my house during a move, but plugs are available easily (an IEC C9). It definitely worked the day before the move and has since been sat on its own in a cupboard.” Link

akais590 “Ich biete meinen gebrauchten Akai S 950 Sampler wegen Studio Auflösung zum Verkauf an. Es ist ein Recksampler, der früher von Künstlern wie zum Beispiel Fatboy Slim, Moby, Dr. Dre, DJ Premiere uvm gerne für Drums und Drumloops verwendet wurde. Er eignet sich aber auch für andere Samples.

Der Akai S 950 Uhr ist ein Kultmodell aus dem Jahr 1988. Dieses hat die typischen Probleme mit der Display Hintergrundbeleuchtung. Sie ist schwach.

Der Sampler war lange Zeit im Rack in meinem Studio eingebaut und hat daher Altersspuren. Ich denke, mit etwas Reinigung dürfte der Sampler sicherlich noch viele Jahre treue musikalische Dienste leisten.”

Akai S950 with 2.25MB RAM, IB-109 SCSI Expansion

Sunday Feb 12, 2017

s950109 “Used but in really good order for its age. These things are built like tanks. There are a few marks on the casing, I have photographed the worst one, just above the power switch. Comes with optional and rare IB 109 SCSI and SP/DIF interface with coaxial and optical inputs. These when available can be quite pricey on there own. Also comes with the maximum memory “1536 Words” a whopping 2.25Mb, it really is amazing what they did with that amount of memory, please check image with bootup screen to confirm this. The screen “usually a weak point” is still easily readable. The floppy drive works flawlessly which is often not the case either. I opened the case up and it is still pretty clean inside. It still has the original power socket on the casing. I have purchased a new cable for this recently. Also comes with rack ears. One screw missing for these. Only have 7.

The sampler has had very little use in the last 20 years, and none in this century except for testing recently and the odd plug in for fun. It has been safely packed away in a cupboard in my house. I have tested it for sampling, saving to floppy, retrieve from floppy, checked all the outputs inc mix. Midi in out and thru all as expected. I did not check the digital interfaces as I do not have anything easily setup to do this. I also cannot check the SCSI interface as I do not have a suitable SCSI device to do so any more. The sampler does a sys check on boot “see image” which states the board is installed and it certainly worked for me in the past. Happy for someone to bring a device along and test it. ”

s950 “A classic Akai S950 12bit sampler in good working order.
If you’re looking at this then you’ll probably know how great this is for re-creating that distinctive Fatboy Slim style stretched vocal sound, old skool drums and a host of other amazing possibilities.
I’d prefer collection in person as it’s very heavy but I can post via insured courier although this is expensive.” Link

Comes with an alternative power-lead(see picture 3), it does power up, on start up, it displays “AKAI S950 1.2 512 Kwords Installed AKAI Professional”(see picture 4) and all programming buttons and displays are appearing on the display panel(see picture 5), the large grey round control button (right top corner) rotates properly and scrolls programming function display with appropriate buttons, all other control knobs are turning smoothly but this machine has not been used for any work for the last two years or so, I do not have a studio setup to test all function of it, therefore, current full working condition is unknown and sold for parts or not working.” Link

Akai S950 with 1.5MB RAM, HxC Floppy Emulator

Tuesday Jun 28, 2016

s950 ” Selling one of my backup Akai S 950s. Max RAM. New blue screen without power inverter noise, HxC SD floppy emulator. Includes an ad card from me that has lots of raw samples, breaks, and floppy images. I’m a pro and a lot of my raw stuff is on there. A 950 with this emulator is a powerful tool. This one has been around and has some wear but is fully functioning. Software is cool and easy to use but doesn’t sound like these. ” Link

A couple of the outputs have been slightly damaged in moving it around, though still work as far as I am aware and an easy fix. I personally only used the Mix out. Has various disks of samples etc and instruction manual. Memory is 1536kWords, which I believe is a massive 2.25MB!” Link

d950 ” If you are reading this, you most probably know what an S950 is 🙂

This sampler (and the SP1200) is responsible for the characteristic sound of the 90s hip-hop, trip-hop, jungle, drum and bass records. The time when samplers were not just software plug-ins and had their own sound.

This one is in very good condition, considering its age (about 25 years old).
Has doubled memory. The display is perfectly readable, backlight is fading though. ” Link
