The Akai S1000 is a 16-bit 44.1 kHz professional stereo digital sampler, released by Akai in 1988. The S1000 was among the first professional-quality 16-bit stereo samplers.[2] Its abilities to splice, crossfade, trim, and loop music in 16-bit CD-quality sound made it popular among producers of this era. The S1000 also had the ability to "time-stretch", a feature that allowed the music's tempo to be adjusted without its pitch being altered. The sampler used 24-bit internal processing, had digital filters and an effects send and return, and featured up to 32MB of ram with memory expansion.


A keyboard variant, the S1000KB, included room for an 80MB hard disk. The S1000PB was a playback-only version of the sampler.[3] The S1100, released in 1990, is an expanded and enhanced version of the S1000.[2]
