Akai S950

“Akai S900 MIDI Digital Sampler.

The rackmount machine that started a revolution in sampling, the Akai S-950 Sampler’s importance in the development of modern music cannot be overstated. The 12-bit stereo sampling, 7.5kHz to 40kHz variable sampling rates, and 63 seconds of sampling time allowed musicians to traverse new frontiers in electronic production and attracted icons from Prince /Dr. Dre/ Hip Hop/Drumb&Bass to Bladerunner composer Vangelis.

Also includes a huge Akai factory (and others) disk library on a thumb drive. It is a 220/240v UK/EU model and includes the correct original 2-prong UK power cable. Also comes with bound copies of the user and service manuals. I will also include the original floppy drive in case you want to refit it for any reason.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai S950

“Akai S950 – great condition and fully working with original screen. Factory installed 512 kwords but should only cost about £100 to fully expand. Rack ears, original power cable and original manual included. I can chuck in a box of floppy disks too.

Really good condition – hardly any scuffs and marks. Used in a smoke-free studio, but hardly been touched for 15 years – hence the sale.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
