Akai S900 Factory Sound Library

Post by Rasputin » Thu Jan 18, 2018 6:32 am

EDIT: I have answered my own question for the most part and have a lot more nowhere-else-on-the-web type information, so I will be updating this thread or expanding to a new one when I have the time.

Information about this is very limited, and I can only find hard evidence of six disks for the S900 actually made by Akai. They are as follows:

Operating System (OS) 4.0
Operating System (OS) 2.0
Akai S900 Operation Guide Disk
SL581 - Multi Sound #1
SL582 - Synth Sound #1
SL583 - Dry Kit


I have OS 4.0 and the Operation Guide Disk, but does anyone possess any info about these or other disks (or better yet the disks themselves)? Seems a pretty limited library...

I'm also aware that Northstar made a fairly extensive library for the S950, but even third party content for the S900 seems quite scarce.

I have some disks from the official Akai S900 sound library; SL501 to SL516. It would be interesting to find other S900/S950 users who have other disks. /M

Any other disks beyond this?

I've made a back-up of 2 Akai S900/S950 libraries: the SL5000 and PSL9000 libraries. I thought I'd share them with other Akai users! Back-ups are in 4 formats: DD and HD floppy images (use Omnidisk to write), SCSI2SD (for S1000 compatible samplers, use Chicken Sys Translator to write the image) and EXS24 format for use in Logic Pro and compatible software.
Here's the download link:
