Akai Professional S5000Published on 05/03/14 at 15:36
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
polyphony of 16 channels (expansion card)

a hard drive loaded sounds, CD recorder all in SCSI
editing screen in NB

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

OVERALL OPINION

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.

Good sampler

Akai Professional S5000Published on 12/01/13 at 11:01
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
without original hard but with a floppy obselete, and SCSI interface indicates. The only 2 weaknesses of the sampler.

UTILIZATION

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

SOUNDS

The sound is excellent

OVERALL OPINION

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.

very good machine

Vintage hardware sampler soon.

UTILIZATION

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.

SOUNDS

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!).

OVERALL OPINION

I bought this S5000 OCCAZ it 5 years. Since then, total reliability. I do not use it...…

OVERALL OPINION

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.
