“used 1987 akai x7000 sampling keyboard
fully working as far as I can tell
except there is no disc drive
the original 2.8 quick disc drive was sent off for repair about 25 years ago and has since been long lost
some dents – see pictures
great for some old skool sampling crunch” Link

x7000 “*** This machine is in great condition overall with minimal wear and only signs of light use and ownership. It’s been cared for and kept isolated inside the home on it’s own shelf and kept covered. Super rare 12 BIT sampler with fully weighted and pressure sensitive key layout. This one HAS the ask70 memory expansion kit installed . All seems to be operational though I haven’t tried the midi connections or the hard disk for quite the time. Disks can be obtained with a little homework by Akai or Roland and perhaps others. Not a beginner machine but has tons of potential and a thick, retro sound. This will be well packaged and complimented with a printed full users manual. ” Link

x7000 “Akai X7000, Classic Vintage 12 bit Sampler Keyboard with MIDI. in excellent clean condition for its age. the Quick Disk drive was removed as it no longer worked due to the belt deteriorating as is a common probem with these old drives. I intended to try and fix it, there are several videos of how to do this on YouTube, but didn’t get around to it. it didn’t me much anyway as it’s quicker to record sounds into a DAW, etc.

This is the keyboard version of the S700 rack sampler. it uses the same Quick Disk drive as the S700 and S612 to save samples. Good working order except for the QD drive.

MIDI IN/OUT/THRU, Mic & Line In, Headphones and Line Out, inputs for Program Up & Sustain Pedals, 13-Pin Din ‘Voice Out’ output enables 6 separate outputs.

Will come with its QD drive (needs new belt repair), and the power lead.” Link

x7k “I am listing this as for parts or not working as the disk drive makes a spinning buzzing sound but does not seem to make contact with the floppy discs,or reads them.

The sampler might work but I have no idea how to record samples into it as it was given to me.

There are a bunch of floppy discs ready that the previous owner provided containing various samples and fm bass sounds.” Link

x7000 “Akai X7000 12-bit Lo-Fi Sampler im Top-Zustand!

Alle Funktionen getestet und voll funktionsfähig. Das Diskettenlaufwerk wurde von kurzem gereinigt und erhielt einen neuen Antriebsriemen.

Die Rackversion des Akai S700. Kinderleichtes Sampling. Einmal kurz ins Handbuch geschaut und schon hat die ersten Samples im Kasten!

Eines des besten Features an diesem Sampler ist das Sampling mit sehr niedrigen Frequenzen (geht runter bis 1,6 kHz!)
Samplingrate zwischen 1,6 und 16 kHz wählbar (unten in 0,1kHz Schritten, oben in 1khz Schritten).

Amtlicher druckvoller LoFi Sound.” Link

x7k “Hi here we have an akai x7000 sampling keyboard

I got this as part of a job lot from a studio which was closing with some other stuff I wanted

I have started it up checked all the buttons and they all work , the led display works may have had a back light at some point but doesn’t now

The rotary encoder works

I think the disk drive is working but I’m not certain , it spins up and you can hear the head moving but I get a “bad data on disk” message , I don’t have another Disk to test it with

That’s as far as I’ve tested it as its humongous and there’s no room in my studio to test it

There are several broken keys see pics and it’s generally pretty shabby

So it’s been sold spares or repair with strictly no returns I’m afraid

There is no power lead included because it’s a two pronged one and I’ve been using my tr909 cable to test it ” Link

x7000 “From a local estate sale of the original owner, up for sale is this great find. It is a Vintage AKAI X7000 Keyboard

First let me start by mentioning that I know very little about musical instruments and this unit has far more functions that I could possibly test.

I was told that it is in normal working condition and unit powers on and all keys work. This is the extent of my testing.

Needless to say,I am offering this unit as found. In as is condition. It will be shipped in original box with accessories shown (nothing extra)” Link

x7k “Doesn’t sample. Sampling side doesn’t work at all. Some kind of board fault.

This also means you can’t load a sample via the disk drive.

It does turn on & transmit midi.

So its main board appears to work normally.

Caveat :-Please note I do not guarantee any function.

( just to cover my ….) ” Link

“Akai X7000 Sampling Keyboard

“Akai X7000

12 Bit Sampling Keyboard

In very good condition with just a few marks here and there

This has NO 2.8 quick disc drive fitted – it was removed before I got it – they were an awful storage system by all accounts

Variable sampling from .8 to 8 seconds per sample

Holds 6 Samples so between 4.8 and 48 seconds total sampling time

Very easy to use

Great clean but punchy akai sound

Great for drums, bass, loops etc

I have been using it with a load of original Fairlight CMI samples and it is superb

The original Fairlight samples are all less than 1 second in length and work great with this

To sample and set up loop points on this takes about 1 minute – it really is that quick – it has a button for every function – no menus” Link

” Here is my mint condition working sampler with custom flight case and soft bag.

Have a search through sonicstate / harmonycentral / synthmuseum and vintagesynth for all the reviews and coveting of this machine.

This has been stored about three weeks after purchase from new in the 80’s. You will not find one in this condition at this cost. Yes you can buy one that has problems such as one or more of keys are missing, the drive has packed up or it crackles like hell.

The hard case is custom made and the keyboard sits inside the soft bag which then all fits inside the case. The case is over 30 years old and whilst in good order, the fixings and hardware could do with a clean up – I’m including it with the keyboard as it is useless to me if you take the X7000.” Link

” I received this in a part ex trade as I thought it’d be interesting and never for round to working out how to use it!

It’s a classic 80s sampling keyboard that uses floppy discs to store and load files. The learning curve on this is quite steep so I’ve actually never worked out how to load or play a sample…haha

However when you turn the machine on you have the generic keyboard sound so it’s definitely working.

Bad parts:

It’s a bit tatty
From checking the keyboard sound two keys appear not to work (pictured)
The backlight for the display isn’t functioning

To the best of my knowledge it’s functioning correctly other than that.

Comes with 5 discs (worth £20 on their own), original instructions and basic carry case.” Link
