“Having a big clear out of clutter and equipment someone left behind for us to sort when they moved abroad.

Been used, some marks and signs of use but no major damage.

Found a power supply which fits (don’t think it’s the original one), and can confirm the sampler turns on when plugged in, the display works though is a bit dark, and it seems to respond correctly when the various buttons are pressed. Unfortunately I wouldn’t know how to connect it up to other devices to test it further.

Power supply and instruction manual will be included, though the manual has been written on and is a bit battered. No other accessories/software/leads/etc. which might have come with it originally, as these weren’t found.”

“Conservatively listed for parts or not working due to us being unable to fully test it. We have run power through it and it powers on, the backlight does not work (common fault).”

“AKAI S950 Sampler Vintage 12-bit sampling (like MPC60)

If you’re looking at this you probably know the story behind this iconic bit of kit.

Great classic sampler. Comes with new power cable from Leads Direct.

I’ve had this item in storage and don’t know how it works. I don’t have the system disk but have switched it on the display comes on. It is in good condition as can be seen in the photos and worked perfectly when I used it on a project with a production partner 2 years ago.

As I don’t know how to test it fully I am offering for collection only so if there are any issues whatsoever, they can be addressed at the time. However, I bought this a few years ago from another producer and it worked perfectly so I don’t anticipate any problems.

I have always wanted to start using this sampler but never got round to it. I’m only selling as I am moving abroad at short notice and have to sell off what I am not taking with me.

It is also being looked at outside of this listing so I may remove it at any time.” Link

“Great Sampler with that iconic 12Bit HipHop sound. The unit has been well stored and hardly used in the last 4 years since i’ve owned it. Tested it all and all working perfectly well, simple enough to use, youtube will help with that if you get stuck!

Pretty simple to use, and fairly cheap! Nice sound quality if you’re into the 12bit crunchy type sound, 8outs plus the loop features make this machine great for drums, also major tool for the hiphop producers used in many studio’s.” Link

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. ”

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
