Akai SG01v panel

It was released in the 90’s and has some really convincing analog emulations that seem pretty robust and rich sounding. I haven’t heard the emu vintage keys, but I think Akai has alot of knowledge when sg0v1 comes to using sampling to capture the sound of a vintage synth and I think the akaai might be 16 bit so it makes the sound warmer.

But then again, it’s Akai. Like a sad ugly puppy nobody wanted I decided to pick this up in my never ending adventerous journey for new unexplored sounds… The SG01V is the blandest MOST boring looking synthesizer ever: It’s always nice to be familiar with gear you could find in a pawn shop or Craigslist.

I thought the bass synth samples were very impressive. Incredible polysynth, very useful for many genres. Here are some mp3 sound demos just jamming with this little box, through some analog delay and my Nomium Crystal compressor, no multitracking — all sequenced in multitrimbal mode: Only thing that seems to be lacking is the number of lead sounds, Minimoog etc, unless i missed something.


Thanks – and yes. Stream all demos below. I’ve been thinking about getting one of these too, also due to the demos at Synthmania. The leads sounded pretty good to me though, although I don’t play synth solos, more lines in combination with bass.
