akai S2000 (16bit sampler)
« on: August 06, 2008, 12:11:05 PM »
The S-2000 is a professional and user-expandable studio sampler. The base S-2000 model comes with 2MB sample memory which can be expanded to 32MB. Sampling specs are variable from 22kHz to 44.1kHz sample rates in stereo or mono and at 16- or 8-bit resolutions. All the necessary edit tools are here: time comp/exp, tune, pitch shift, truncate, looping, key placement, velocity effects and more. Up to 32 voices of polyphony, complete MIDI implementation, a built-in disk drive and a SCSI interface prepare this sampler for any situation.

De S2000 van AKAI verscheen halfweg 1995 op de markt als het rack-mountable broertje van de MPC2000 en werd meteen bejubeld in de vakpers. ...

On recent Windows versions like ME and XP, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. It depends on your computer and floppy drive, so if you have problems try to find an older PC to run AkaiDisk on. The Windows version requires vbrun300.dll (224k) in your \windows\system folder.

Akai S2000 Sampler Connections
Last weekend I picked up a used Akai S2000 Sampler for $20 bucks and thought I’d have some fun with it. I’ve actually never owned an Akai Sampler before and I understand the S2000 is likely to be last on everyone’s list of samplers to buy, but I thought I’d give it a shot. Below are some thoughts about the Akai S2000 based on my experience over the past few days working with it. ...

HOW TO: Transfer AKAI S900 floppies to PC
Ok this is an issue. If you scan the net most people is telling that you need AKAIDISK. And most people is telling one needs Win98 too

WRONG!

You can read/write Akai S900 disks with Omniflop, and it works flawlessly under XP. (actually ONLY XP is supported!) (EDIT 02/18/2010: Omniflop 2.2c has been reported to work with Vista)

WHAT YOU NEED:

    PC with floppy drive (not USB!)
    Registered Onmiflop program (it's free)
    AKAI S900/s950
    Floppies (Modern HDs work ok, just put some tape on the HD hole...)
    Samples
    Patience :)

NiceWave was a piece of software written in my spare time around 1998. After my experience working on PC to Akai sampler software, I decided to experiment and produce something for the public domain. It's presented here for those who may find it useful. It's released into the public domain. It comes with no other documentation, support or warranty. Enjoy.

The AKAIZER Project
Akaizer is a freeware application for Windows / Mac OS X / Linux which can time stretch and/or pitch shift any WAVE or AIFF sound file in the style of the 'cyclic' time stretch, which featured on old Akai sound samplers, like the S950 / S1000 / S2000 / S3000 series. This is ideal for DAW-based music producers who want that classic metallic-sounding effect, as used in many old school Hardcore / Jungle / Speed Garage tunes from the 1990s, without the need for an actual Akai sampler.

Akai S2000 with Windows XP
Basically since Akai stopped making the s2000, for the longest time I couldn't figure how to use mesa II with anything other than windows 89. Its now possible to use mesa with windows XP.

Apparently you just need to update the adaptec ASPI driver. (so I've read)

I recently got an Akai s2000 sampler.
Unfortunately it uses a proprietary format for its sample images and there is no OSS software to control it over midi.
This page serves mostly to document my findings and progress.
