Rack rash, few scratches on top of the unit.

Large sample library included, been a while since I’ve used the unit but if I remember correctly some of the disks did not load, not sure why.
Some blank floppy’s also included.”

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.”

“Selling my AKAI S950 sampler, with a UK plug and EU converter.

Overall in nice condition, there are some minor scuffs and scratches (as normal considering the age of the unit).

Great machine with a classic 12 bit sound! Fun and easy to use.
Comes with a new ocean blue backlight. I have also added 5 boxes of floppy disks.

I have tested the unit and everything works properly.

Selling because I am reducing my audio gear collection. The item ships from Estonia (EU).” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai S950 with 2.25MB RAM

“Vintage Akai S950 Midi Digital Sampler 1989 owned by me since new. Fully expanded memory onboard 2.25meg. (2x 750kb chips) with original manual, box, rack arms, some original Akai sound disks that came with it (not checked yet but will update all in listing)

MINT excellent condition see pics. Even the original blue backlight is still running! I would advise that it will need changing though by the buyer because it’s been over 30 years. It will not last long as you can see i have to show in a darkened room for it to be prominent (see pics). Bright daylight you won’t see it. Plenty of cheap deals for backlight replacement though. Other then that yea the main buttons knobs have yellowed a little but that’s age. All plastics go this way eventually. The data wheel sometimes a little jumpy on selection but data can be keyed in with numbers alternatively.

This is an absolute classic and nothing samples like it due to its unique 12 bit AD converters. Gritty , dirty sound on tap like old vinyl or warm and powerful you decide by your bandwidth setting. Samples up to 48 kHz and fully selectable. It’s known for being a top beats sampler by producers, but sample what you like.

The first sampler to introduce time stretching without altering pitch. Many other functions read online. Pre trigger recording was always a fave of mine and NO ONE ever put that function in elsewhere even today!”
