AKAI SAMPLER OS EPROMS
If you have an Akai sampler with an early operating system installed, you are still running your OS from a floppy or you've just spilled a cup of coffee over your OS disk then this is the page for you.
All of these operating system EPROM's can be installed in your sampler in a matter of minutes, so you'll never need a floppy disk ever again. Its as simple as levering the old OS chips out and dropping the new ones in, making sure that the notch in the end of the chips are oriented in the same position as the currently installed ones, You should take the same basic anti-static precautions as you would installing RAM into a computer.
These EPROM's have only ever been stored in antistatic conditions, and will be supplied in a shielded tube..
If you want to buy one of these EPROM's click on the Buy Now button below. Payments are processed via Paypal, but you can pay using a credit or debit card without having a Paypal account. If you want to pay using some other method, please get in touch via the CONTACT page.
PLEASE NOTE: We can no longer ship EPROM's to Italy. You can blame the thieves in your postal system who seem to have an uncontrollable urge to steal OS EPROM's for old music kit.
