Akai Professional S1000KB Digital Stereo Sampler

    Description
    The Akai S1000KB is a 16 voice, multitimbral, sampler with featuring a programmable digital low pass filter, 2 envelope generator. Sample memory (2MB) can contain up to 200 Sample editing includes crossfade loops, resampling, reverse, time-stretch, and truncate.

    16-note polyphony allows complex passages to be played with the full sample time. The samples may be edited with full trimming facilities (down to 1 sampling period), looped at up to 8 loop points per sample (with tuning of the loop), spliced to other samples, filtered and sent through two independent ADSR envelope generators. Full velocity, positional and looping crossfading is possible.

    Basic synthesizer waveforms (sine, triangle, etc) are available on disk for synthesizer/sampler sounds. The S1000 is also capable of editing samples digitally by "stretching" or "squeezing" samples without changing the pitch in order to fit them into a specific time slot. Resampling can be done at any frequency (higher or lower than the original). The stereo facility is ideal for sampling portions of prerecorded program material (making it an ideal tool for "house", "hip-hop" etc productions), as well as for sampling ambient acoustic sounds.

    Naturally, a full MIDI implementation is built in - multi-timbral capabilities making the S1000 perfect for use with a sequencer such as the AKAI MPC-60 or ASQ-10. Special functions for remote operation of the AKAI ME-35T Audio/MIDI trigger unit (1 or 2 can be controlled), together with a single-trigger monophonic mode make the S1000 into a real-time percussion tone generator.

    In the studio, eight separate outputs allow maximum flexibility in mixing and adding effects. However, stereo operation is possible from just two outputs, and a built-in stereo effects send/return loop can save channels and space in live work.

    The S1000KB is capable of processing up to 200 samples, 100 programs, or a combination of up to 400 samples + programs + keygroups. The internal 3.5" floppy disk drive provides a quick easy method of storing and retrieving data (samples, programs and other settings). Hard disks may be used by the S1000KB when using the optional IB-103 interface board (AKAI provide a 40 Mbyte capacity drive which may be mounted internally), but any SCSI compatible drive may be used up to a capacity of 512 Mbytes. The hard disk may be divided into partitions and volumes. The SCSI interface may also be used for fast transmission of sample data to SCSI-equipped computers for editing.
