UTILITY - This allows you to program an Akai ME35T audio/drum pad-MIDI converter for triggering samples. DISK - This allows you to select different disk drive operations such as loading and saving. MASTER TUNE - This allows you to fine tune the S950 to other instruments. Jul 11, 2019 Akai S950 Part ONE: An introduction to the sampler that changed everything. Duration: 10:57. Dan Baker 46,543 views. Quick Beat made on the S950/2000XL. Jun 04, 2020 those two samplers are completely opposite. S950 is a 12-bit legend. It can sound crunchy and also quite hifi and has a legendary filter and sound when you transposed samples. S2000 is 16-bit and wasn't known for being very characterterful. Check them out on youtube. Mar 31, 2020 Also many DI's can have a flattering effect on drums/bass etc that you run through them. Many people like to run their drums for example through good class A DI's to give them some flavor. An S950 will still sound good tracked without a DI. I tracked for years from S950- great river mp2nv DI. I liked the tone and the way transients sounded.
Last month I released sample packs on 7/07 and 7/27 honoring Roland's legendary mid-80s drum machines. I ran all the samples through Akai's S950 sampler for added gritty texture and am posting them here for mass consumption.Now it's 8/08, so it's only obvious what the next step is for this series. Roland's TR-808 needs very little introduction; it's likely the most used (and abused) old school drum machine in history.I managed to get a clean recording of every sound from his original TR-808. This includes a very large variety of tone, decay, and tune settings for the kick, snare, conga, tom, cymbal, and open hat. Similar to the other packs from last month, I then ran everything through the S950, then saved all the hits in separate folders.
