“Up for auction is my last Akai S1000 HD, And look what I found…. My MicroNet Technologies 88mb C Drive bay, SCSI cable, and a removable Syquest Drive full of S1000 Samples and Keygroups. As you can see… I FIXED THE DISPLAY! ($130.00 + my time). Largest memory available, and a large internal hard drive for samples and song keygroups. It also has the 3.5 floppy drive for S900-S950 and S1000 samples. Then store the samples internally on the drive in the S1000, or on to a Syquest removable drive. No more reloading of floppy disks like the S900’s and S950’s. I bought it all new in Los Angeles back in the early 1990’s. The sampler was used on many major label records during my career in LA. Works perfectly! There is some rack rash (usual). It’s just time for me to let it go to someone who wants to carry on its legacy. Look closely at the display pictures for some of what’s on the removable drive. There are a boatload of samples on the removable drive (roughly the equivalent of 30 to 40 3.5 floppy disks). The removable drive is worth some serious coin all by itself. Very cool stuff. This is the perfect vintage system! When you base out the various items and the new display, the S1000 is priced at about $300.00… Okay…. Tell you what I’m gonna do. I’ve got, at the least, 40 to 50 3.5 S900, S950, and S1000 floppy disks on top of what’s on the removable drive. I was going to sell them separately. I will include them in this auction just to be done with my Akai life. See the added pictures. Some of the floppy’s in the picture are Mac, but I’ll sort them out.
Includes power cords, SCSI Card, SCSI cable, and Manual.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
