With 17 Mb installed the sampling time jumps up to seconds in stereo at 32 kHz and the memory is dynamically allocated, so any BANK can use as little or as much as it needs, in theory you could have a single stereo loop over two minutes long at 32 kHz, or even a sample over 17 minutes long, in mono, at 4 kHz.

This sampler is very bare and yet Click here to visit listing on eBay. Whether your a DJ or musician thinking of entering the wonderful world of sampling, the S20 offers a pretty convincing combination of power and price and could be a rewarding and productive addition to any set-up, be it turntable or desktop, just make sure you budget for some extra memory. Generally, however, it behaves itself on the smell score. Doing this, seamlessly ends recording and starts playback of the sample, which is now in LOOP mode, so you can hear the results immediately, with only three button pushes.

Power is supplied by a small 12V DC unit, thankfully not a wall wart type. Setting up the S20 to receive MIDI on multiple channels is just as easy as everything else on the S20, I managed it without referring to the manual, which can’t be said of many samplers. Some cosmetic marks, particularly underneath, but nothing really noticeable and most importantly it works brilliantly. A fraction of the cost of an MPC, and much simpler to use. There is so much stuff on it that it could take you a week to get through it all, everything from dub to disco, SFXvocals, beats, bops and blaps, licks and loops and all with listed BPMs, icing on an already fine cake.


Small, well built and rugged. Has the 16mb memory upgrade installed, and comes with a generic power supply. Thu May 30, 2: Wed Mar 23, 1: In addition, he really has his own one, he sampled 32kz which provides sound reproduction very hot, typed lo-fi.

On the SXL, samples sounded a little more full, particularly in the sub bass area and had slightly more sparkle in the upper regions but I think most everyday users would be hard pressed to tell the difference between them. Fully functional and comes with power lead. Mon Sep 13, 6: I love mine I own two — one as a spare. Then I got flu for for a couple of days and nothing would loop properly and it wasn’t the fault of the S20, along with a woolly headed feeling I had lost my sense of timing and the knack of hitting those buttons just right was gone I feel a lot better now, thank you.


On the other hand and if it is expanded to the full 17 Mb memory and connected to a MIDI keyboard, I found it to be a perfectly capable 8 voice, 16 part multitimbral sampler. Everything was now in sync, happy, happy, joy, joy It is in fine working order with the original FDD but no disks.

I never knew you could downgrade the sample rate to 8 bit until I started going through it! Anyone have an opinion on the s20, in terms of lo-fi sampling.

Not satisfied with those reviews? It comes with a lite version of FL in the box which like all versions includes lifetime I wish it had some effects, but akak are things like the Tweakilizer and Korg Kaoss pads for those. A BCAN gniale live thanks to his pads, and can tweak it to add 2 sockets dclenchement foot mine has a custom as does the store that sold it.


It is to sample the audio input while samples play maunal. Finding one that’s not thrashed is hard though since they were cheaply made. This is a beat I did in Reason, while the drums were programmed on the RZ Manual Click this link to download the Akai owner’s manual.

Manjal Jun 02, 6: Good quality, 16 bit, stereo sound.

I loaded some Akai SXL loops into the S20 for a side by side comparison and found little subjective difference, even the loop points played back perfectly. Comes with one disk and charger.

Just z20 a new power supply for the S20, because my old one was super unreliable. Also, achieving a good loop through careful timing means you can move on to grabbing and looping more samples a lot quicker, because you don’t need to get side-tracked into LOOP EDIT mode to tidy things up, which can be a slow and frustrating process.

Tested and fully working. S20 – Version 1. Lastmanuals, for instance, does not offer a translation service. To sample and play back a stereo loop from a cold start involves only three button pushes, no parameters to set no pages to wade through just switch on and sample.
