gerri56's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" the charm of sampling"

Akai Professional S5000
polyphony of 16 channels (expansion card)
2 inputs, left and right, 16 simultaneous output jack input and optical output 2 times 16 midi channels
a hard drive loaded sounds, CD recorder all in SCSI
editing screen in NB


Just plug one or two midi keyboards to sound sampler, the name sounds appears on screen with a single tree.
The manual is complete and in French


I do not know the answer technical questions, in any case, the sounds are top
(Pianos, drums, woodwinds, strings ...)


For nearly a year, I have not tried other harwares systems, but it was an old dream of having a AKAI sampler.
the only difficulty I encountered was a loose connection at the hard drive, for safety, I made a full copy of the DD.
I have the original invoices and it's professional equipment that I bought a studio in the area.
I think if I was in a position to buy today, I would take a mid-range model with fewer exits, because I do not really use in their capabilities.

fransyl's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good sampler"

Akai Professional S5000
without original hard but with a floppy obselete, and SCSI interface indicates. The only 2 weaknesses of the sampler.


Easy editing, even on the screen ... everything is possible with the S5000.
Loading very slow hard disk to use "Live"


The sound is excellent


I use it for several years. I replaced the floppy drive with a flash card reader. It's even better than a hard drive.
Very good sampler, shame it is SCSI.

verymuch's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" very good machine"

Akai Professional S5000
Vintage hardware sampler soon.


It is still quite complex to handle. Especially after period (hard to get back in "sample-edition-mapping" mode after 2-3 months stage where one does turning on the machine and a program loader) easy to use. Functions are so numerous that malgrés ease of access, it takes quite some time to achieve his ends.


The sound is the strong point of the device. Even with piano samples that date, it will mix perfectly. The long curls better ring once loaded into the machine before. Blame the excellent converters (16 bits yet, like what!).


I bought this S5000 OCCAZ it 5 years. Since then, total reliability. I do not use it as a sampler. In fact I configured as three machines in one: a piano sound expander (noon A), a trigger loop, or even complete songs (Midi B samples 4 to 6 minutes) and a generator effect SansAmp, delays and reverb (happiness, I paske FX card!) using in all, 6 Outputs: 2 piano, 2 samples, 2 out FX.
Only downside in case of a power outage, it takes more than a minute to restart everything ...
This is so useful that I would never sell unit.
Musically. Verymuch.
