“MPC was used in my personal studio. It is fully memory expanded with 8 outs and SMPTE card. No fx Ram card. Selling with Zip drive , 3 Zip disks , and 2 mpc sound disks. Item has cosmetic wear. Missing power button but still powers up just stick your finger in it. Missing face plate to disk drive. Missing one knob on the front(slider knob). Power cords and connector included. The Zip drive and the mpc both come with free dust. Lol.” Link
“$2,000+ New / $3,000 MSRP. Awesome condition. I completely emptied the memory, so you can start from scratch with any samples you’d like. I’m also including a 4 gig card with a ton of samples you can use right away. The very tip of the eject button for the SD card slot is chipped, but you can still use it no problem. Just thought I’d mention it. ” Link
“Works great! Just looking for an Sp 404sx because I’m starting to play live shows.” Link
” Verkaufe eine MPC 1000 Black in völlig neuwertigem Zustand (technisch und optisch). Die LEDs, Tasten, Fader, Räder, Knöpfe, Pads, Funktionen sowie die Speicherkarte sind top funktionabel. Display ohne Pixelfehler! Die MPC wurde nur sehr selten benutzt, da ich schnell gemerkt habe, dass mir das Produzieren von Musik definitiv nicht liegt. Gerät stand sicher verpackt in einem Nichtraucherhaushalt – mit der MPC wurde immer pfleglich umgegangen. ” Link
All works fine except:
- The two knobs on the right hand side of the front panel have snapped off (Was like this before i bought it) Replacements on ebay for sale
- The LED light on the screen does not work either. The screen can still be seen in a lit room tho (Was like this before i bought it) Replacements on ebay for sale
The reason i am selling this sampler on is because i am moving studios and need to conserve space. Drums do genuinely sound better when recorded on this sampler. The mid range of a snare drum is especially crunchy and really snaps through in a mix. ” Link
“I’m selling this famous Akai CD3000XL sampler. If you’re in to these classic Akai samplers, this is the best and last of them. It has been tested and is in perfect working order it has had a new inverter installed and has maxed out memory. The display has started to dim but is still perfectly readable and useable as seen in the pictures. And if you did want to replace the display, you can pick them up on eBay for about £10 to £20 and they are easy to fit. But as i said it is perfectly useable as is.” Link
” I’ve decided to downsize and sell off some of my studio gear and this hasn’t been used in along time. This has been in storage for the past 3 years and when it was in my studio it had very light use. Included in the sale is 181Gb external hard drive, which comes with a 13Gb sample, loop and beats library( 168Gb free space). This sampler has the full 256 meg of ram fitted and also has the optional usb card fitted too. This machine is in very good condition and shows no signs of wear on any knobs, buttons or sockets. There aren’t that many Akai S6000′s that come up for auction on ebay in this good condition and with this high spec, so if you are looking for one of these samplers this is a near pristine machine.
Included in this auction is
181 Gb external hard drive( with active terminator)
2 x mains leads
3 x SCSI leads
1 x USB lead” Link
This Akai is in great cosmetic condition and mechanically it powers up and operates exactly as the manufacturer intended.

” I am selling a used Akai MPC 2000XL. It has only been used in a non-smoking studio and in church settings. Works great as a stand alone drum machine or sampler, or as a control for computer based sequencers, samplers, or synths. Great Price on a powerful studio tool.” Link
“Boots up fine, worked last time my son used it a year ago. He is now in the Navy and doesn’t use it anymore” Link

You CAN see the readout if you shine a flashlight or clamp on a cheap light from Home Depot. I shined a flash light and made a beat to do all the testing and checks.
It was my unit . I bought it when it came out. This is the Made In Japan version. it has 8 outs . It is expanded to 32mb to offer over 6 minutes of sampling. A perfect combo with an MPC.
It is in good shape there is normal wear and tear on the rack holes, the underside of the unit, and a few light scratches elsewhere . See photos . All in all cosmetically good .
Everything is working and tested . Sampler
Outputs inputs buttons etc….but again the LCD is very faded. It CAN be seen but needs replacing.
Power cable included no manual but I can provide you with a link of you need it to download . You should be able to find it easy by searching google for free .” Link
“Akai mpc 2000xl se3 special edition sampler sequencer workstation in basically flawless condition with maxed out ram,smpte,8outputs expander board. Screen is perfect and gorgeous! No missing lines, no issues! Every button, pad, key, and slider works perfect and feels like new. Cosmetically it’s a 9.9 out of 10. Only reason it’s not a 10 is a couple very small scratches not even really noticeable all that being said item will be properly packaged and sent promptly.” Link
-The slider on the bottom left corner of the MPC is missing, however replacement sliders are easy to buy so it should not be a huge problem.
-The display is slightly dimmed from what newer MPC displays look like, however it is still easily readable and did not cause me much trouble
-A couple buttons are slightly jammed right under the display, they should be easy to fix but I do not know how
Barring any unknown issues besides these, the MPC is in fine working condition. This model has been used to make many classic albums, and you could be getting a steal.” Link
