“If you’re looking at this auction, you probably have some idea of how awesome the AX-80 sounds. If not, check out youtube for demos. This is an analog 8 voice polyphonic synth from 1984. It has midi but being an older synth doesn’t have the midi capability of newer synths. This synth is in 100% working condition. All keys, leds, membranes, midi, and inputs/outputs work as they should. The keyboard has cosmetic blemishes that came with the synth when I purchased it in 2010. One key has a minor chip, the side panels have damage, and there are screws missing on the back panel.” Link

Akai AX73 Analog Synthesizer (power cable attached)
6 voice VCO Analog Synthesizer based on Curtis CEM 3394 chips, produced in 1986. Photos are of the actual unit.
I’m the second owner of this classic and had it fully cleaned inside and out summer of 2016. All keys professionally lubricated, new 3V battery, display nice and bright.
I intended to perform the 6 stereo channel mod on the sampler DIN input, but just never had the time. The lowest C key needs to be restored, however the trigger contact is fully functional and has never been an issue.
Sounds just as beefy, heavy and thick as when I got it. The top panel has adequate room to accommodate desktop synth modules or an array of fx pedals.” Link
All the screens are bright and functional, the button pads and keyboard work fine and all the oscillators are working and in tune.
This is a fantastic synth with a great sound and musical filter.
Programming sounds is super easy through the 5 VFD displays, a bit of a hidden gem among synthesisers in my opinion.
Fully working.” Link
“This synth is fully analog. Even though it is 30+ years old, this instrument is in perfect operating condition. Professionally cleaned and serviced last year. Plays great. No sticky keys or weird faders. All voices work and stay in tune. Auto tune works perfect. One fader cap is missing, but the fader is still operable without it. ” Link
I bought this board about five years ago, to use as a midi controller. The keys are fully weighted, and the midi works fine. Perfect to use as a VSTi controller.
The unit powers up, and the LCD functions fine, although the back light is out. I can change the parms, and select all functions fine, but it does not output any sound other than a LOUD FEEDBACK HUM.
I have no idea if that is something that can be easily fixed. Also the unit has been sitting on a shelf in a climate controlled storage space of my studio, but there was no cover, and I never bothered to give it a detailed clean after I purchased it. I just bought it, but never used it. I did wipe it down with a electronics cleaning cloth to take the pictures, but I did not try to make it appear like it is in mint condition or anything.”
“When testing through headphones, 5 white keys and 3 black keys do not work. The rest seem to work okay. A couple of keys are partly broken and a corner of the unit has some damage. It is sold as-is with no returns offered!” When testing through headphones, 5 white keys and 3 black keys do not work. The rest seem to work okay.

” This is Akai’s rack mount version of the AX73 keyboard. It is a 6 voice digitally-controlled analog synthesizer. It also has a connector for use with Akai’s older samplers to allow routing samples through the analog filters of the VX90. This unit is in good working condition. It has some paint worn off around the rack mounting holes and a few scratches on the case. No manual (a pdf manual is available online).” Link

“This Synthesiser was given to my son. It was well used and loved. Two sliders missing. They are available right now on eBay. Appears that all functions are working. Minor imperfections, none that affect its playing capabilities.” Link
“The AX80 is the first pro-keyboard produced by Akai, released in 1984. It’s an eight-voice programmable analog synthesizer with a full 61-note keyboard. Two analog oscillators per voice plus a sub oscillator provide the basis of its punchy analog sounds that can be described as similar to a Roland Juno 106. Very good bass, brass, synth sounds, and effects are possible. The keyboard is in great condition for being 30 years old. The only issue I have found is the 5 LCD screens that show a visual example of the parameters do not work. This does not affect any sort of navigation or functionality of the keyboard. It is a perfectly working keyboard that sounds incredible.” Link
” Up for sale is an AKAI AX80. It is fully serviced and in great condition. All buttons and functions are in perfect working order. There is one corner panel with chipped paint, but still in great cosmetic condition.
This piece of equipment sounds amazing.” Link
“Up for auction today we have a Akai AX80 Keyboard Synthesizer. This synthesizer belongs to a dear friend of mine that has fallen on had times. He hasn’t played it in a few years. I got it out of storage for him and am tring to sell it. I pluged it in and it came on and seemd to work. I pluged it into a guitar amp and tried all of the keys and scrolled through the edit control up and down. Everything appeared to work as i think it should have. I’m not a keyboard player. The screens all seemed to be working. Of course it isn’t perfect, has some corner damage on each side. It was also apparent to me that the knobs aren’t original as they don’t even really fit. But they did function. Tried the pitch bend and modulation and they were working as well. To the untrained eye it appears to just need a little TLC. I have done my best to show and describe the keyboard, if you have any questions just shoot me a e-mail and I’ll try my best. Thanks for looking!” Link
” Awesome condition. Normal wear for a 30 year old synth. Recently loaded with factory sounds. Volume slider is a bit scratchy but could easily be resolved with a good cleaning. ” Link
“Up for auction is a very rare Akai VX90. If you are looking at this unit I probably don’t need to remind you that it has six CEM 3394 ICs driving the signal. Amazing poly-synth unit. As you can see it has a small dent in the back corner, but rest assured, it has been fully tested and works great. ” Link
“For sale is my Akai ASQ10 hardware MIDI sequencer by which was designed by Roger Linn. This sequencer is part of the Akai MPC family. This is actually the exact same sequencer of the MPC60 and is, in my opinion the best hardware MIDI sequencer ever build.
I am the original owner. I bought it in 1988 from a music store/studio I was working at as a young teenager. This device was the central core of my musical life from 1988 to 2004 and responsible for thousands of hours of enjoyment and songwriting inspiration. I sort of fell out of music in 2005 for a while, sold a lot of equipment, but could never let go of this sequencer. It is so fun and easy to use.
This unit has spent the majority of it’s life in my smoke free home studio. I always kept a dust cover over it when not in use. It is in great condition, only some discoloring of the front panel around the frequently used data wheel transport buttons. Also, the back lighting of the LCD display is out. The LCD display works, it just needs new back lighting to be brighter. As I write this description there is a listing on Ebay for a replacement for $31. To confirm, the LCD works and displays all data, it’s just darker because of the back lighting being out. See picture to see LCD display.
The ASQ10 is a tank! Literally, this is the most well built device I have ever owned. Akai really knew how to make durable and beefy devices. Look at the picture of the side shot of the device – you will see that the top panel is a think piece of steel. The buttons and data knob still feel as solid as they did when I first got it. But it is heavy due to that solid construction, so be aware of that for shipping.” Link
Here we have a great condition, fully working Akai AX60 Programmable Polyphonic VCO Analog Synthesizer. All works perfect, and cosmetically its in great condition as well. It is missing two slider tops / caps (sliders themselves are fine). You can buy these for under $5 a piece online if you’d like. It never bothered me at all. This is a very underrated synthesizer, VCO, true analog, and can get very aggressive with the resonance pumping. Comes with synth only (power cord attached) Please see pictures!” Link
“Up for sale is my Akai AX60. This is an analog 6 voice polyphonic synth that contends with Juno etc,but in my opinion is way cooler. There are very few blemishes and it’s clean inside and out so it was well cared for. The memory backup battery recently tested good and It’s ultimately a very reliable synth. I’ll pack it very carefully for a safe trip, double boxed with plenty of protection.” Link
