Old Akais are sexy - the ultimate Akai thread

So I've been listening to a lot of older deep house and dub techno recently, and I've had a hard time replicating the gritty, deep sound of lots of the chords and pads. Everything I do sounds too shiny and metallic and clangy. Could it be from the converters and 12 bit memory in the samplers from around that time? Anyone here run their gear into something like a s900 to get a grittier sound?
