The Akai Professional S2000 is a high performance sampler offering nearly all the functionality of the original S3000 and the new S3000XL but has a re-designed user interface that has a 2 x 16 LCD and a condensed front panel. However, these changes do not compromise performance and behind the front panel you have the same power for exciting sampling possibilities as you would find on more expensive samplers. Sampling functions like 32-voice polyphony, expandable memory, and, DSP functions.

Using the S2000’s resonant lowpass filters, multiple LFOs, envelope generators and extensive modulation possibilities, your new sampler can double as a first class synthesiser as well. Certain new functions are introduced in Akai’s new range of samplers. In software, the new MULTI mode of operation simplifies multi-timbral sequencing and layering whilst hardware options include a multi-effects processor that offers no less than four channels that include two multi-effects channels with distortion, EQ, ring modulation, modulation effects such as chorus, flanging, pitch shifting, auto panning and rotary speaker effects plus delay and reverb. Two ‘spare’ channels of reverb are also available providing a total of four reverbs. Add to this the optional eight individual outputs, digital i/o and a second bank of resonant multi-mode filters and you can see that the S2000 is a sampler that can grow with your needs.

Bundled with the S2000 is a software application for the Macintosh™ computer that allows you to operate the sampler from your Macintosh allowing large screen operation of waveform and program editing, sophisticated organisation of your sound library on the Macintosh as well as the ability to integrate your sampler more conveniently with your computer sequencer. Naturally, all sound library developed for the Akai S900, S950, S1000, S1100 and the S3000 range of samplers is compatible in the S2000 giving you access to thousands of sounds on floppy disk, hard disk, removable cartridges, MO disks and CD-ROM. Furthermore, it is possible to load data from CD-ROMs made for certain samplers made by other manufacturers thereby giving access to an enormous palette of sounds. All this adds up to a price breakthrough in sampling technology - the new Akai S2000.
