The S1000KB was a nice big keyboard version of this mega-sampler. It featured a 61-note keyboard with velocity and aftertouch sensitivity and room for an 80MB hard disk. SCSI and digital interfaces were available on both keyboard and rack versions. Other variations include the S1000PB playback-only unit and the S1000HD with its built-in 40MB hard disk.

Following the S1000 came the S1100 (1990) which boasted up to 32MB of sampling with 24-bit internal processing! Also on-board were a SCSI interface, digital effects, AES/EBU digital output, SMPTE reader/gen, and optional hard-disk recording.
So Akai never had a sequencing keyboard?
