Akai S612 For Sale. This is a very basic and pretty limited vintage sampler, but its really cool because it offers knobs for realtime control. So if you like tweaking your lo-fi sounds on the fly, this sampler might be a good choice for you. Has knobs for filter, decay, level, LFO speed, depth, delay, tune, start/splice and end points. Shifting the start and end points in realtime is pretty badass!
This S612 sampler work fine. We tested it with midi in and sampled with it and got some great results. This sale also includes an md-280 disk drive but we don’t have any disks for it. The drive does not appear to work - we saw no light or indication that it's working except for a brief moment. We could not reproduce this lucky moment and, due to the low value of this combo, we can't justify paying our tech to work on it, so we have to emphasize that it's being sold strictly as is. The sampler has a few spots of rust on the top and the front panel has some blotchy spots as well, but this is merely cosmetic and doesn't effect performance. The disk drive has a little rust in the front. The slots for the disks have dust inside and the back has a few isolated rusty spots and a little adhesive residue. Some of this can be cleaned. If youre looking for a mint S612, keep looking! If you want one that's got a few "beauty marks" but works well, this one should make you happy.
