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.

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.

Hi To all AKAI S950 Gurus on the board ,
like to start a Beginners Quick Start on S950 thread:)
Just got mine few days ago and struglin' between long confusing manual and self trial and error experimentation.
Question 1)
When S950 boots up it loads a TONE program by default that plays a sine wave sound across

Akai S950 Manual

all range,
When i create my own program with samples mapped to MPC1000 Bank A 16 pads
I still can hear the TONE program playing along with my Program Samples when i hit the pads on MPC100..??!
So i tried to erase, mute or deselect TONE program but it still comes out trough Stereo output of
S950 ..
What am i doing wrong and how to properly create custom Program to play samples via Stereo
output of S950 without TOne program and that the samples dont cut each other off as opposed to
assigning them to a individual MONO outputs?
i have followed DFACE video tutorial on Youtube withch is nice but doesnt cover that TONE program problem

Tonesorry if its a basic question
thanks in advance

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.
