The S20 is great way to get your feet wet in the world of sampling, and Akai has made it easy on the pocket to do just that. The S20 brings some really nice features found on more expensive samplers such as a beat loop function which allows you to match different samples by adjusting actual BPM rate rather than transposing or tunning.(Really cool)
It is fully MIDI controllable, and assigning bank samples onto your keyboard and sequencer software is a snap. It brings a HD/DD 3.5 inch floppy drive, but, you wont find any SCSI ports on this puppy. Which is rather unfortunate because adding 16 megabytes of ram allows for recording up to 262 seconds of 16 bit audio at 32 khz. which makes this sampler a real meaty contender with other higher end units, but there's no actual way of saving unless you dump into a hard disk recorder. (I would prefer to save on a JAZZ drive). All in all Akai has done a good job of producing a great sounding sampler with professional features for a fraction of what others cost.
