Description
The S950 introduced from Akai Professional in 1988, has the same look and hardware as the previous model the S900.

Sampling rate is increased up to 48 kz and memory option now expanded to 2.25 mb. The memory standard from factory was 750 KB. The buttons and knobs of the faceplate are identical however the floppy disk drive can also read high density disks as well as double density. The unit can also read S900 disks and disks from the S1000 Stereo Digital Sampler.

Its also the first Akai sampler to implement Time Stretching as a feature to stretch the length of a sample without changing the pitch.
A SCSI port allowed for the instrument to move and edit samples in PC/MAC software.
