Just been searching and the few I’ve seen are located for sale in Europe. And I have noticed sv01v most of the ones I come across for sale are out of Europe or Japan. There are some effects too, reverb delay etc.
Electronic M effects processor to aki out a bit”, since the SG01v on-board reverbs are a bit short. Classic house organ, bubbly acid and sounds. We seem to be reviving a real sleeper synth here.
It has its sounds as ROM samples, and there is not really much editing but the presets that Akai programmed seem spot on and the choice of synths they emulated when they made this is very impressive. Luke Eargoggle Style electrobasses. From Roland’s warm synthesizer JX-3P. I wish it hadn’t been a half rack module – I hate to admit being so silly, but had it been twice as big I might have taken it more seriously and actually kept it – it’s not like selling it made me rich Sure the vocoder and talkbox are cool as hell.
Mysterious and fascinating synth.
But you can’t use it very often and if you do, it’s too much. Most are quite good and sound authentic. Were more of these released in Europe, I wonder?
Sg0v FAQs Go to top. I sold mine because I thought the new VA synths and the softsynths would be much better in ALL ways than anything else and make the other stuff obsolete I had a similar Roland module at the time, one of those JV-card derived cheapo things that you akao get in Vintage Synth, Dance etc. It tells you that every decade had its unsung heros of talented programmers and sound designers.
I was very disappointed with it once I got it and quickly sold akqi for a huge loss. Here are some mp3 sound demos just jamming with this little box, through some analog delay and my Nomium Crystal compressor, no multitracking — all sequenced in multitrimbal mode: A jollyhappy mishmash of several vintage drummachines like -you can guess- theLinndrum and probably some obscure AKAI boxes.
I’ve been thinking about getting one of these too, also due to the demos at Synthmania. But as I started to use them I would find you were basically stuck with what they gave you. Cold war minimal wavish sounds. Incredible synth bass – with the superb mono-legato mode. Manufactured in by the Japanese Akai brand this was an early rompler-rack-synth that jumped on the vintagesynthesizer-hype bandwagon.
I thought it sucked in comparison, and rarely used it.

Stream all demos below. Like a sad ugly puppy nobody wanted I decided to pick this up in my never ending adventerous journey for new unexplored sounds….
Only thing that seems to be lacking is the number of lead sounds, Minimoog etc, unless i missed something. It’s amazing that with all the newer things coming out year after year all the older less hyped up stuff gets lost in the woodwork. Interesting, I was listening to this little guy on Paolo’s Synthmania site a couple of weeks back.
I was pleasantly surprised by this synth – because it sounds really goodand even though this is not a super-programmable module, it still is a lot of fun and a nice addition to any musician’s studio. Inspired from the Ondes Martenot, an early synthesizer like the Theremin.
I would be looking for something to pair with a Roland PK-5 midi bass controller and I am hoping to get a John Carpenter “Assault on Precinct 16” bass synth sound out of it.
Thanks – and yes. Good luck on sg011v search.
Looks like a fantastic little box though. The leads sounded pretty good to me though, although I don’t play synth solos, more lines in combination with bass.
Yamaha PSR, 3 meter long Hosa stereo cable jack to phono. 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. Akai has always been top notch.
