k General MIDI Sound Module

Three sound modules which offer a huge range of sounds sampled using the highly acclaimed technology from the Akai S-Series samplers.

The SG01 series gives 16 bit resolution from compact, half-rack modules fully controllable from any external MIDI controller and in some cases from a personal computer. All the units are 32 voice polyphonic and 16 channel multi-timbral with stereo outputs, stereo headphone jack and MIDI in/out/thru ports. Each module is capable of highly individual sounds as a stand alone item, but the complete system, less than 15cm high, makes a complete 48 channel multi-timbral, 96-voice keyboard sound generation system, with 464 preset sounds, 18MB ROM and compatibility with General MIDI. And all at a very affordable price.



SG01v Vintage Synthesizer Sound Module

The SG01v realistically reproduces 256 of the best vintage synth sounds using the same powerful processor as the world leading Akai S-series samplers. Recreate the Prophet 5, MiniMoog, Jupiter 6, PPG Wave 2.2, DX7, D50, ARP Solina string synths, Ensoniq ESQ1 vocal, TR808 drums and percussion, TR727 Latin percussion and Simmons SDS5 drum synth. Akai sampled the raw, basic oscillator waves of these legendary instruments to allow all filter sweeps and processing to be done by the SG01v's own circuitry. This makes the sound much more flexible and maintains constant modulation rates across the keyboard range. The SG01v can have up to 4 oscillators, 24dB/8ve lowpass filters (or split between lowpass resonant and multi-mode resonant filters), 2 x LFOs (triangle, square, sawtooth, random and note-on random) and 3 x envelope generators per voice.

It can be used as a single channel or a 16-channel multi-timbral sound module, and has Key Parameter Editing (envelope shape, filter cutoff and resonance) accessible from the front panel as well as more extensive facilities via a MIDI controller. Further features make use of Akai's own APM - the full modulation routing of controllers to modules, portamento, a single triggering mode for accurate monosynth bass articulation, 30 reverb effects and 2 sets of drum/percussion sounds.

SG01p Piano Sound Module

Featuring 8 megabytes of the finest piano voices sampled with Akai S-series technology. The SG01p has 50 preset acoustic grand and upright piano, electric piano and clavinet sounds in a wide range of variations in both mono and stereo modes. 32 voice polyphony, 16-channel multi-timbral, Key Parameter Editing accessed via the front panel or through a MIDI controller and 30 reverb effects, independently adjustable for each sound from the front panel. A complete package for anyone wanting a grand piano sound without the expense or inconvenience.

SG01k GM Sound Module

The SG01k is a PCM module conforming to the General MIDI standard (GM), fully controllable from a personal computer or external MIDI controller, incorporating 189 melodic and 124 percussion preset sounds sourced via the acclaimed sampling technology of the Akai S-series samplers. The SG01k will accurately play back all GM compatible song files and is thus most useful for multi-media presentations, for providing covering backing tracks and as invaluable aid for busy songwriters to sketch out material at speed. Editing is possible via the front panel or through the 8 pin mini DIN computer interface. It has 30 reverb types and different effect send levels, which can be individually set up for 16 parts.
