Akai S950he S-950 was released about 1988, as an upgrade from the S-900..... it was like the old S-900, still 12 bit, but you could expand the ram memory to 2.25mb
Akai also upped the max sample rate to 48k, and added such functions as cross-fade looping as standard.... (s/w upgradable on the S-900)..... most importantly for some, Akai added the Time-Stretch function so essential for matching loops and vocal phrases etc to BPM tempo.......
You also got the ability to use HD disks as well as DD's..... but pretty much the rest is as for the S-900.......stereo out, + 8 mono seperate outs....
So...... if your a user, add your comments please..... a better workhorse than the S-900...... and available fairly cheap...... worth a look for a cheap budget sampler....As used by Moby, D:ream etc.....

Well... The classic old S950 - Do NOT under-estimate this sampler, they are superb, and the variable sampling allows you to really get the most out of the limited ram memory... comments please..
beatmaking with akai mpc60, s950 and sonar6 ...
