Akai S612 with Akai MD280

“AKAI MD280 Sample Disk Drive & AKAI S612 MIDI Digital Sampler.

Classic Sampler Instruments from my personal collection

***The S216 does turn on when plugged in and the Disk Drive did work the last time I was able to check it but that was all the way back in 2012***

These items have not been used in about a decade. I am mostly selling for parts but there is still a good chance that all this works without any repair.

This will be a HEAVY box when it is packaged and shipped. ”

Lot of 2 Akai S612 with 1 Akai MD280

“Rare Vintage 2X AKAI S612 Sampler and 1X MD280 Disk Drive VTG Music Gear AS-IS!.

S612 buttons appear to be responsive and it powers up but I have no way of testing.

The MD280 doesn’t appear to do anything but I don’t really know how to use it .

When I hit load button both show what I’m assuming to be E for error but maybe the led is out on bottom part of E

These have been boxed up in a garage for about 20 years.

There was a tag on one of the displays with adhesive. I used rubbing alcohol to take it off but there’s still some adhesive on the screen.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai S612 with Akai MD280

“The s612 is in good shape, has been turned on and played with on Dec. 22, 2020. The sliders were sprayed with Electronic Cleaner to fix crackling. Could use a good clean due to crackling. The colour cap on the ‘filter’ knob is missing.

Listed as ‘ for parts or not working ‘ due to intermittent crackling of “start/end” slider.

The MD280 unit works intermittently. I was able to load a few disks, then it would stop working and then start again. It is recommended that you service the MD280 or install a drive emulator for it. (NOT WORKING — FOR PARTS)

What is included:
– Generic Box Holding Akai S612, Akai MD280, and 2 boxes of Akai Sound libraries.
– Akai S612 MIDI Sampler
– Akai MD280 Disk Drive
– 2x Akai Sound Library Quick Disk boxes” Click here to search for MPCs on eBay

“I am Selling an AKAI S612 sampler , with MD280 , quickdisks

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

Akai S-612 with MD280 Disk Drive

“AKAI S-612 Vintage 12-BIT Sampler With Analogue LOW PASS FILTER S612. Condition is Used.

Very unique sampler with very unique tactile interface and 12 bit sound. If you are after some analogue 12 bit sound and don’t want to have to over pay for an sp1200 this is a great bargain

Great fun if you are bored of using your computer for sampling

Has an LFO/low pass filter and sample start/end time can be selected from sliders all in real time

it all works great the only thing is the monitor pot can be a little crackly sometimes but all the other functions work well

I will also include an MD280 and discs. I cannot get the md280 to work -I’m not sure if it’s the discs or the drive itself. It does get power and starts to load but just sticks and never loads the sample, I will include anyway and you might be able to fix it. “ Click here to search for MPCs on eBay
