“Akai S612 12 bit 6 sec sampler Great Shape!! Works Please Read Description. Condition is “For parts or not working”.

Parts only!!! Turns one and is fine sometimes idk why it doesn’t turn on other times!!!

This thing works and turns on and then sometimes it dosnt, idk what is the issue!!

The pics with it powered on was when I was posting this ebay post just now. It turned on and off all the functions worked and then now nothing. It has done this befor. I have a video I just took me changing buttons everything looked perfect.

Then I plugged in the akai md280 then it stopped powering on again.

I am listing it as parts only because I do not know exactly how to use all the functions or anything but as far as I know all buttons and functions work when it powers up and works looks great!!! ”

Akai S612

“Vintage Akai Midi Digital Sampler S612. The unit is a 19” rack mount measuring approximately (Face 19”) body 17 ¼” X 14 ¼” 3 ½”. I am not familiar with the unit and do not have the equipment to properly test it however I did power the unit through a mixer and amp and produce sound from a microphone. I was not able or capable of testing any of the other functions available. I was able to have the channel led change and have some of the other buttons light up when selected. A few of the pictures show some of the indicator buttons and the record level indicator lighted along with a few different channels indicated on the led. There are a number of scratches on the top of the front panel probably from installing and removing from a rack mount system. This is a vintage used item and does shows signs of use with scratches, mars, etc. This is an older unit and could require some repair service. In addition I do have a video of it playing through a microphone that I would post on you tube for a serious buyer. The unit is being SOLD USED AS /IS.” Click here to search for MPCs on eBay
