Hi everyone!

Yeah I bought a nasty sampler in Budapest this year..........an AKAI S612!!!

I love this one and with the loop sliders you can get really wicked loops. Then I got the chance to buy an Akai ax60 synth.With this little devil you can connect the s 612 to the ax60.Pretty cool, but there´s only one small problem. I need a cable that I never have seen, can anyone HELP ME PLEASE!!!!

If anyone has a manual to share i´m most greatful!

While not a versatile sampler by anymeans compared to todays technology, and those quick disks are annoying, but its still a useful audio tool. These can occasionally be picked up for peanuts and they're worth it, even if you only sample into them, filter then sample into a different more versatile sampler for use, just to get a vintage akai sound, or a crusty 8-Bit sample. If thats what you want, buy one now.

Do NOT buy the Akai 612!! Its almost impossible to find any quick disks out there and it is VERY limited as a sampler. Waste of money!!

JS-30, 'cause the S-612 uses quickdisks, which can no longer be bought, or in the very best case are very hard to get. Plus the JS-30 is a pretty advanced sampler for it's size with plenty of features and is somewhat expandable, right? SCSI etc.
