Drums, Keys, Textures & Vocal FX From the Iconic, Late 80s Sampler

Classic and glitched out drum hits, subs, basses, pianos, keys and warped vocal FX from Akai's hefty and excellent sounding S950 sampler. Sounds have been sourced directly from: drum machines, vinyl, movies, analog synths and ROMplers, and sampled them into the 950 at varying clipping levels, sample rates, bandwidths, and bit rates.


The samples were then extensively edited with onboard filtering, enveloping, re-sampling and time-stretching (the S950 was indeed the first sampler to offer this function). The results: classic and crunchy, fat and glitchy, and unmistakably S950.

Finally, everything was recorded into the computer via Radial JDI, Api Preamp and a custom Zahl console. Then, it was sorted, edited and mapped to drum kits and playable keyboard instruments for various DAWs and samplers, giving you everything you need to create your own S950 Anthems.
