Akai Factory Samples 1985 | Make a song with these!


Espen Kraft

"The Akai S612/700/7000 factory Quick Disk library samples. By today's standards quite limited, at least on paper. I go back and make a track with these sounds, just as I did 35 years ago.

Going back to 1985 is always fun. My first sampler was the Akai X7000, the keyboard version of the S700, which in turn was the follow-up to the S612 so to speak, and it's hard to describe the sensation we felt when we tried sampling for the first time, it was like the gates of heaven opening up. If you weren't there you'll never understand, but making this video and song took my somewhat back to that place. Just because these factory samples brings back so many memories."
