Akai Pro S6000
The Akai S5000 and S6000 are powerful professional samplers with easy to use interface. The S5000 and S6000 use DOS and .wav files as their native disk and sample format. Recognizing that .wav is fast becoming the worldwide standard for audio interchange, the adoption of these formats allows .wav files to be loaded directly for instant playback from any PC formatted hard or removable disks attached to the samplers. In addition, sound files downloaded from the Internet can be easily loaded and played back. Other natural advantages are that off-the-shelf disk utilities and commercially available .wav and shareware sample-editors can be used without any special transfer or conversion routines. An added benefit of these formats is that interleaved stereo .wav files are treated as one sample, instead of two mono L/R, enabling easier editing. However, we haven't forgotten our existing customers as the new samplers will read S1000 and S3000 sound libraries as well making the decision to upgrade your sampler even simpler.
