Akai Z4/Z8 factory samples

I recently acquired an Akai Z4 that sadly had the HD wiped clean, also no original CD with factory sound library was included with the sale. I therefore am looking for the original Akai Z4/Z8 factory sound library.

I already have a digital copy of the MPC 4000 factory samples, but I have read that these do differ from the original Z4/Z8 factory samples. I also read that the installed HD had the Akai S5000/S6000 libraries included, so I am also looking for these sound libraries. An original CD or a copy of these files (for which I would be willing to pay) would be very welcome, but a digital (.ISO) file would also make me very happy.

Many thanks in advance!

Hi, could you please rip your Akai Z4 factory cd and make it avaliable as a "wetransfer" link? It would be really apreciated as a lot of Z4 owner's including me are searching this cd for ages. Lot of thanks in advance.

Hi - Any chance to share the factory CDs? I have the same problems here, a Z4 with an empty hard drive. Thanks!
