Akai S2000 and Akai S01 Samplers Project Machines

” Here we have an auction for both S2000 and S01 Akai samplers. Ive upgraded to a S3000XL and bobbed in a Susano Monster to give it 500mb hard drive so no longer need the S2000. I also robbed the filter AND effects boards from the S2000 and they were working fine while in the sampler. It does though, come with the 8 output board which again was working fine. S2000 is fitted with 9MB(18MWords)

Up to around 2 months ago the S2000 worked fine but now it wont boot from the floppy drive. It goes so far and then just stops. It also has to be booted up with the system disc already in to start to boot so im guessing its the floppy drive thats kaput. Please see pics.

The S01 boots up and the data wheelworks fine and runs through as it should. I have not however tested any further and have not actually used the machine for over 20 years hence why this auction is listed as “spares or repair” but it has been kept dry storage in my studio and probably will still work.”

“AKAI Midi Digital S01 Sampler in fully working condition.

Some scufs and light scratches on front. Scratching and usage marks on the case. Some rusting on top and bottom of case but purely cosmetic, see images.

Fully tested and working. Floppy drive also works OK. I created some samples, saved them, switched off and back on and loaded the saved samples OK.

Midi interface tested with a midi keyboard (not supplied) and working OK.”

” Here for sale is my beloved AKAI S01 sampler, the first of the S series and probably the model that gets the least attention.

I love this little thing despite its limits and I have had many great years out of it.

I just fired it up to test it for sale and quickly sampled some drums and cut/edited them and forgot how much fun this one is. What it lacks in depth and spec it makes up for with being able to start putting samples together in about 30 seconds. genuinely really enjoyed that little stroll down memory lane.

It recorded perfectly and every function I could test worked. I do not have any floppy disks so couldn’t test that but it recorded the sample into the unit itself and I played around with it.”

“I just found this in the back of my garage it’s a circuit bent s01 that I did yonks ago .. I just tested it and it works and it seems like three of The bends do something,, distortions and and ring modulator… It’s an unfinished project and it’s not in the best condition and is missing screws on the side but they’re built like tanks so theyd survive a nuclear war.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
