Weapons of choice
The E-mu SP-1200 and Akai S950 are two iconic samplers that were widely used by music producers and beat makers in the 1990s. These samplers were popular for their unique sound and features, which made them ideal for creating the gritty, sample-based beats that became synonymous with hip-hop and other genres of electronic music at the time.
The E-mu SP-1200 was first released in 1987 and quickly became a go-to sampler for many producers. It had a limited sample time of only 10 seconds, which meant that producers had to be creative with how they used their samples. This limitation also gave the SP-1200 its unique sound, with a gritty, lo-fi quality that many producers loved.
The Akai S950, which was released a few years later in 1988, was a 12-bit sampler like the SP-1200 but had a more advanced sound processing, thanks to its 48 kHz sampling rate, its 12-bit linear quantization and a much better filtering system, along with a slightly longer sample time.
Iconic in the 1990s, the two machines continue to be revered by many producers and beatmakers today, not only for their unique sound and features but also for the role they played in shaping the sound of hip-hop and electronic music.
