The S612 sound is phenomenal and is the best sounding Machine ever made by the AKAI. This is old school kit and with a sound not available any more
This sampler is great as polifonic synth or drum synthesizer, to pitch, beef up and modulate drums samples .
It has an analog Filter and analog VCA to processes the signal which is the reason of it’s unique sound ! Also is unique the scanning of the waveform with the 2 faders that makes the work flow true fun really ( workflow is key often overlooked)
The s612 has been used and still is , by artists like Jeff Mills ,Efdemin ,Âme Etc
This item is untested but was working perfectly about a year ago, It has no power lead
