The Akai X-7000 was my first professional keyboard. I had a plethora of samples on disk available which I got free from the dealer. Overall, I loved it's rich samples. However, with all samplers of the 1980's some of the loops were lousy. I used it as my main controller for several years. I liked the length of the keyboard and it's white case. The big disadvantge was it used 2.5 inch floopy disk which could only be bought through it's dealer. However, it's drive was really fast compared to the Kurzweil 1000's 3.5 in drive. It has a small blacklight green display which did the job. Would have been nice if it were bigger. Not much more to say about it. I sold it as part of a rig package in 1990. Personally, I would never buy one again if I had the chance. There are a lot better used samplers out their. I recently bought a Yamaha PSR-D1 (DJX) for $300 that has a comparable sampler in it, minus the drive, sounds better and is versitle in it's assignable features.

I've had mine far too long. disk drive also dead and its a bitch to have to save samples on dat and then resample them up every time I want to use them. editing is real simple but the longer the sample the dirtier the sound. Sometimes thats good, sometimes it sucks. Looping is easy....never like the auto loop feature, dont use the resample feature either...what good is that? Just makes it sound dirtier. Touch sensitivity is a little crazy at times..not useful to me as a controler. Need to save $$$ for a real sampler. If you see one on sale make sure the disk drive works, otherwise...pass!

Not so great, based on my uses. I need samplers to fill in the spaces for synth sounds which my other modules can not produce, to add in odd environmental sounds, vocals, and crap like that. This only has 6 voices onboard, and is kind of cumbersome in the editing [although quite simple] and has been very unreliable for me. The only reason I tolerate it is because i allready own it, and I don't have enough money laying around to pay for a S series akai, and my TB-Maui card hasn't come in the mail yet! I would say, unless you can get it for a real good price, you can do better.
