Akai S3000XL MIDI Stereo Digital Sampler Rackmount - OS 2.00 / 16Mwords

Behold the Akai S3000XL MIDI Stereo Digital Sampler Rackmount - a legendary sonic masterpiece that's ready to redefine your music creation experience. Equipped with OS 2.00 and robust 16Mwords of memory, the S-series samplers from Akai are celebrated as the quintessential 16-bit samplers in the world. This particular gem, though having weathered some cosmetic adventures in the past, performs with unyielding excellence, delivering precisely as intended.

The only noteworthy battle scar is a slightly dimmed display screen, a common badge of honor these units earn over time. Not to worry, as we've included a snapshot in the listing to assure you that the vital information remains perfectly legible. Now, let's dive into what makes the Akai S3000XL an unparalleled musical companion.

These samplers are nothing short of revolutionary, possessing an innate synth-like character that sets them apart. Beyond their extraordinary sampling capabilities, boasting 44.1kHz 16-bit stereo sampling and generous RAM options ranging from 8 to 32 MB, the S3000 series flaunts an arsenal of synth-like filters with resonance, a lavish 32-voice polyphony, and a treasure trove of digital onboard effects such as delay, chorus, and reverb.

But the magic doesn't stop there; these samplers feature not one, but two LFOs, providing you with a world of sonic manipulation. Complete MIDI implementation with MTC and SMPTE compatibility ensures seamless integration into your studio setup. What's more, you'll find digital I/O, a SCSI interface for efficient data transfer, and a plethora of storage options.

And there it stands, like a beacon of musical innovation, a great big LCD display screen that guides you through your creative journey.

The S3000XL, captured in the image above, is a treasure trove of features. It comes pre-loaded with a suite of options, including a built-in hard-disk recording capability, added filters, SCSI interface, digital I/O, supplementary optional effects, and a reliable SMPTE reader/generator. This is not just a sampler; it's your passport to sonic exploration, limited only by your imagination. Grab your opportunity to own a piece of musical history and embark on a sonic adventure like no other.
