doc.ouahed's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" provided to the sound"

Akai S01
Polyphony: 8
no effect
connectors: jack for audio in / out / phone - 2 midi in - 2 thru
Converters: no idea, what is sure is that it sounds Akai ...
standard memory, a small loop max 15.6 s
no utility (and honestly, no need ...)

UTILIZATION

use of simple, just have to read, it works ...
manual clear
single edition (entry point, exit - tonal adjustment - pitch transpose etc ...)

SOUNDS

converters, in my opinion, the color sample (compresses a bit). We like it or not, in any case, there's grain.

no effect

dynamics is very well respected. nothing to do with the internal samplers. computers (in general, the best of the best Macs and PCs) have not been designed primarily for sound. sound, nowadays, it is an electric signal abbord respected ... dedicate a machine to it with its power supply, its process, its components, dedicated only to send samples by noon will always sound better now than any of our pretty soft. impossible to make a REAL drum Hip / Hop - Dub without a true sampler.

Watch as the dimension of the sampler and MPC60 ASR10 for inimitable colors. ASP10 an akai midi sequencer to remove the computer. With samplers, keyboards (for controler) and ASP10, a composition is obtained noon, external, colorful and dynamic, where each element takes its place perfectly in the mix.

The computer will just save his processor will have nothing to calculate ...

Imagine ..

Ca adds to a good wiring and redo your elec, you're ready.

OVERALL OPINION

some other model tested and recognized. I think it takes several sampler to be operational. More = more dynamic sampler / color / width possible samples. The S01, certe enter range is perfectly suited to those who wish to leave the computer for composer / sampler. Very intuitive and easy to use, beginners can learn. Pourles used a S01 to 70E will always be useful in the rack ...

Akai S01
- What is polyphony?
8 votes.
- What converter?
??
- What effect?
No effects, filter or otherwise.
- How much memory as standard? maximum?
Short memory (about twenty dry)-which the standard silent era it was released, and can be double, if c'tait almost automatically in all that magasisn sold, so they are found as has OCCAZ.
- What connection (Audio, MIDI, numrique ...)?
Basic connection: in and out jacks / midi in, out and through, save to disk and nothing else.
Stereo output, no exits spares available for the 8 sounds.
- Is there a utility edition of Mac / PC?
Not my knowledge.
It sounds little, but that is only a sampler "old" sounds like a photocopier said Imhotep, the producer of AMI.

UTILIZATION

- The configuration gnrale Is it easy?
Extremely easy use, the passing of a function the other is empty. Using the front panel buttons, and everything is srigraphi (like on old Emu).
- The edition of sounds and effects is it easy?
In fact there are very few possibilities.
- The manual is clear and sufficient?
We can easily do without the manual is clear, that said in case ...

SOUNDS

- The A / D and D / A are transparent?
The sound reproduction is correct: Its a bit cold and even when synthetic.
- Effects and filters are effective?
No effect or filter to apply, you must think about before and / or APRS.
- The dynamic is it respect?
Overall yes, its a fairly typical Aka does not please everyone.

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?
Used for years, he didn 't ever possible of problem or cause for concern.
- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
In the era c'tait one of the few affordable samplers for beginners!
- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
No, my first c'tait.
- How do you report qualitprix?
When I see what demand for machines in fashion, I would advise those who want s to initiate sampling in the hardware version of the S01 look at the cot.
But today, with the soft-mode at all, one can find much better for not much more expensive.
- With the exprience, you do again this choice?
I use it on and search volumes now but I think c'tait a good solution for beginners, and also that it can dpanner or a service.
Too limited even when considering what you may have on the second hand market.
on the other hand, there is a good bank of sounds on disk, since it is compatible S1000/S1100 the same file format samples.

(N / B: This opinion is one of Previous told that I could not help it, forcing closure of account)

Pilipo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Akai S01
Mono sampler, the first of his generation disk ... is almost a grand old.
No effect, with only short memory time of 15.6 Sampling. An extension can be added but given the cot it is not worth the trouble.
Connection: jack

UTILIZATION

Extrment use is for a simple and that I love.
I have an intuitive report the machine ... o difficulty of passing something else ...

SOUNDS

Reproduction done everything correct sounds too synthetic grain noise.

OVERALL OPINION

Use for 4 years.
What I like most is its simplicity.
I bought it after several searches, advice APRS seller's cost of my DSIR and in view of my knowledge in the field.
I try to put something else, still akai.
