Go back to main synthesizer site. I just don’t know because I’ve only been aware of this thing for about 30 mins. There are also two banks of classic-sounding drums a la TR and Simmons.
It was released in the 90’s and has some really convincing analog emulations that seem pretty robust and rich sounding. S y n th s tu f f A k ai S G01 V I got this recently from the Delsin Records yard sale, fishing behind the net for some exotic gear this little module was all that was left after a tsunami of greedy gear addicted producers plundered through the machines.
SG01v Vintage Sound Module. Hey, flat earth, yes that is where I heard tha samples, on synthmania.
Aka – and yes. It sounded good before I bought it. It tells you that every decade had its unsung heros of talented programmers and sound designers.
Interesting, I was listening to this little guy on Paolo’s Synthmania site a couple of weeks back. As far as leads go, I would be using it more for bass synth sounds or mid voiced sounds. I thought it sucked in comparison, and rarely used it. This little module really sounds pretty cool based on some clips I have been hearing. Sound quality was awful, IIRC. Hey McHale, check out the sound samples for the Akai, You might find the Akai more usefeul to you than as a talk box.
The Akai may be fantastic, but you may find it as useful as a vocoder or a talkbox. Incredible synth bass – with the superb mono-legato mode. But you can’t use it very often and if you do, it’s too much. Features at a glance.
AKAI must have had some corporate guideline were fun and colors were not allowed — electronic music equipment is a SERIOUS business — lets make it look like drab lab equipment remembering you of horrible nightmares in Hi-school chemistry class! Thanks for akau thread – a good reminder that I should buy one at first opportunity provided the price is right.

Pretty realistic Leslie effect obtained with filter and LFO settings assigned to modulation wheel. I used to own one a little less than a decade ago. It has its sounds as ROM samples, and there is not really much editing but the presets that Akai s0g1v seem spot on and the st01v of synths they emulated when they made this is very impressive.
I’ve been thinking about getting one of these too, also due to the demos at Synthmania. Stream all demos below. Outstanding analog synth bass, with plenty of tamed attack resonance.
Inspired from the Ondes Martenot, an early synthesizer like the Theremin. The cute Korg M monosynth.
The leads sounded pretty good to me though, although I don’t play synth solos, more lines in combination with bass. Not so much when I started to spend time with it. I was pleasantly surprised by this synth – because it sounds really goodand even though this is a,ai a super-programmable module, it still is a lot of fun and a nice addition to any musician’s studio.

But there is a function on it that allows you to configure for legato playing I think. Skai on the most comprehensive and widely viewed musicians’ website.
Most are quite good and sound authentic. Were more of these released in Europe, I wonder? They seem to be all over Europe, but none here.
But as I started to use them I would find you were basically stuck with what they gave you. There was very little you could do to tailor the sounds to your needs. Electronic M effects processor to “help out a bit”, since the SG01v on-board reverbs are a bit short. We seem to be reviving a real sleeper synth here. I had a similar Roland module at the time, one of those JV-card derived cheapo things that you could get in Vintage Synth, Dance etc. A jollyhappy mishmash of several vintage drummachines like -you can guess- theLinndrum and probably some obscure AKAI boxes.
Manufactured in by the Japanese Akai brand this was an early rompler-rack-synth that jumped on the vintagesynthesizer-hype bandwagon. Akai has always been top notch. Cold war minimal wavish sounds. Some supposed “lead” sounds I find to sound great in the mid or bass range, at least with other synths. That’s the fun I guess.
