Nanual have S unit. This is my favorite sampler because it has very good, bright, clear sound and very nice 18db filter. It has good fx board based on motorola dsp chip.

I like S even more than SXL. Unfortunately midi implementation is very limited, there is no resonance and it has only 16 voices of polyphony. If you want to get S, buy S instead.

Akai S1000 / S1100

Digital output, fx unit, scsi ports are onboard. Additionally S is majual and it has louder outputs due to 20bit converters while samples are still 16bit. But i have few instruction how to save it on floppy. First of all download win 98 boot disk from http: Save it to blank floppy by executing downloaded file. Next unzip akai os exe file, move to boot disk.

Restart computer and boot from disk, and run by typing os exe file name. Update 17 Dec I just found similar tutorial how to put cf inside akai s at Mike Bass Page: Update 20 April This sampler still amazes me: When comparing sound from computer programs to this beast, difference is huge!

I wondered what secret is behind this sampler, and i ask uncle google what special this piece of old hardware has. After many hours of browsing and reading i got the answer. Next Akai units, like s use simple linear interpolation and samples, especially d1100 lower frequency than native 44,1khz sounds dull, and you get stronger antialiasing.

This was very expensive, so because of economy reasons this was the last sampler with such beautiful sound. I discovered something interesting. When you play distorted sample saturated, squashed or clipped this interpolation tires to reproduce lost signal! It produces even more hi-tones from lo-fi saturated sample. This is just incredible. How i noticed this? I loaded some old lofi snares, hihats samples with maxed level, and i noticed unnatural high clipping.


Now i know why, because of its unique interpolation! It tires amai reproduce lost tones! Signal is just interpolated beyond 16bit scale and it clips. In this situation ajai need some headroom. This is independent of gain, volume settings. Sampler just need such samples to be 0. If you want to use low-frequency samples in modern daws, or software samplers you needs exciters, EQ and other processing for good sound.

But aai Akai S plays it better without additional tweaking! I had purchased earlier an Akai sHDand was just about to try it out for the first timewhen I realized that the OM is almost kilometers away from where I am!! Then I decided to check the Internet for possible OM -downloadsand from thy pagesI could download infact a few of manuals for the gadgetand now I can akzi proceed with my test drive!!!

Much Love and happpinesflowers and peace to there! Did you use s11000. I use only aiai. I just got a S to compliment my S!

Can i modify a S floppy to work with it?! I have an internal jaz drive installed in my s S110 bought an S and had running for maybe 3 times neither sampling or doing anything nearly challenging for the machine… The second time I started it, the machine couldnt load anymore floppys. Also it overheated i think some noise appeared after few minutes.

The third time i started it my whole room started to smell insanely aggressive no smoke. I had to put the sampler out of the house. Im so sad about all maual do you have any advice what i could do? Try to find repair service or another unit. Mine s starts buzzing after few minutes, but this sound comes from s110.

This is not audible on audio channels, its just from inside of sampler.

Try to plug it off power supply cable and check sampler one more time check internal wavs, sine pulse, etc Maybe its just floppy drive fault? I noticed something odd with my S OS 4. I thought my FX card was broken, as whenever I engaged any reverb it would give weird digital noise and distortion. However, once I reset the unit the revebs were fine.


Just curious if you have ever noticed this. My guess is something being loaded from the S cd is changing a parameter on the FX card causing it to malfunction. I have sxl with fx board, but i never loaded samples from s to my s unit.

So i cant confirm this issue. But in my opinion this is rather bug than adefect. FX unit on the s is completely different and this is impossible to translate effect data from s to s You have to edit or disable fx on s Disabling FX on the s is not an option!

The reverb sounds too good: I think they may contain the OS which, when loaded into the s, is causing the problem. The S has options when loading to load all samples, programs, OS, etc. Something on the CD not the programs or samples is causing the s to use the FX dsp differently.

I know that s reverb is much better: Sending samples thru midi elektron tool makes them very quiet idk why. I just bought an old S, already got an S, but cannot get the S to read the S discs.

Is this know to you and do you have a cure for it? Does anyone have any experience using a gotek floppy emulator in an S? Your email address will not be published.

Additionally S is faster and it has louder outputs due to 20bit converters while samples are still 16bit some infos: And the last thing… I discovered something interesting.

I wondered why it badly clips hi-tone samples with low frequency when they are maxed… Now i know why, because of its unique interpolation! Akaimanualsampler. Janne February 6, Reply. Thanks July 30, Reply. July 30, Reply. July 13, Reply.
