Akai S900

“This auction is for:

1. AKAI S900 Sampler
2. LOTHREK HxC Drive which is an open box but has not been used
3. 2 Disk Drives (unsure if they work)
4. RARE 950 Rack Ears

This 900 is obviously used and a little rough but it works great. Absolute classic sampler and in my opinion the best harmonic filter of any 90s Sampler. Feel free to argue with me on this haha. The sampler is missing a few knobs and the installed disk drive is broken. It does still have the rack ears and the sampler works great

I had plans to put in an HxC Drive but never got around to it and now I am moving and don’t have the space to keep it. I am including the HxC Drive I purchased as well as 2 other drives I had laying around. The HxC Drive is new and ready for installation the other two drives I am not sure about. I know for a fact one of them is broken and not sure about the other. ”

“The S900 sampler was Akai’s first truly professional sampler, released in 1986. Its sampling specifications were pro-quality at the time: 12-bit stereo sampling, 7.5kHz to 40kHz variable sampling rates and a maximum of 63 seconds of sample time at 7.5kHz. Up to 32 samples can be created and stored to disk along with any edit settings. This was one of the first rack-mount samplers to use a built-in disk drive. Although the drive could load sounds while you play, it was still a very slow process, Editing and programming the S900 is a very good precursor to the advanced S3000 series. There are lots of advanced edit capabilities for looping, truncating, velocity crossfading, tuning and even analog-like parameters to control. Individual outputs for each of the eight voices, stereo mix out, stereo input, MIDI and trigger inputs round out this machine as a professional vintage-status sampler that still proves to be very useful even for today’s musicians!”

“I used this sampler back in the 90s and it’s been sat doing nothing for the last 20 or so years taking up space at home. I got it out the other day to see what condition it’s in and I’m impressed – pretty nice looking after a quick wipe down, a few very minor scratches and a couple of slight dents you can hardly even see on the photos.
I didn’t have a power cable so ordered the connector (£4) and put one together, tested it and it works! Cable included in this sale.
The RAM is good as seen on the photo of display.
Floppy drive – seems ok but not sure. I have 1 disk and it says the disk is not formatted but it was and did have samples on, just not reading the disk or the disk is corrupted. The drive seems to work but I’m not able to put in a good disk to test it. It makes the right noises and the display shows correct info.
I was able to record some audio via a mic and it played back perfectly. Just not able to save it anywhere.
The display works but it’s quite dim.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
