Akai S-900 Starting at 99 cents

Monday Sep 29, 2008


“You are bidding on a vintage S-900 sampler. Called the first “truly professional sampler” by Vintage Synth Explorer, the S900 samples in 12 bit up to 40 kHz. This machine has 8 outputs, MIDI in/outs, stereo inputs, stereo outputs and some pretty advanced parameters for looping, truncating and manipulating samples. Though you only get 63 seconds of sampling time, you’ll ultimately need less to make the crunchiest, snappiest snares in dance, hip-hop and any other sample-based music. For the money, it’s worth having in your rackmount.” Link

Custom Forat MPC3000 with VGA card!!!!!!!

Sunday Sep 28, 2008


I’m drooling over this.

“Listed here for auction is my baby!! In exceptionally good condition, used AKAI MPC3000 with Forat Customization, including, Wood Side Panels, Silver Paint, internal SCSI Zip Drive, and impossible to find VGA output card!! What can I say, I love this MPC more than my children, if I had any, but it’s just time to let her go. She’s got it all, looks, style, and SOUND!! Forget what you’ve heard, this is the BEST sounding MPC ever!! Period! The newer units don’t even compare when it comes to clarity and PUNCH of the sound coming out of this machine. This MPC3000 was very well cared for and has just two very tiny, I mean tiny, blemishes in the custom paint. I had to use my camera’s Macro-mode to get a good picture of them for you which you can see below. This MPC 3000 is 100% fully functional and the backlight is bright blue as it was recently replaced. One extra thing that you’ll find with this MPC over other Forat customizations is that this one doesn’t have anybody’s silly name on it.” Link

MPC3000LE #0447 NO Reserve Auction!!

Sunday Sep 28, 2008


Lets hope everyone’s sleeping at the wheel so this goes cheap… it does have some minor issues.

“UP FOR SALE IS AN AKAI MPC 3ooo LIMITED EDITION.
THIS IS #o447 OUT OF ONLY 2ooo EVER MADE.
IT IS PERHAPS THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER DRUM MACHINE/SAMPLER EVER MADE BECAUSE OF ITS RARITY AND ITS BEAUTIFUL ANALOG SOUND!
IF YOU CLICKED ON THIS AUCTION YOU ALREADY KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS WITH THIS SAMPLER!!
THE MACHINE IS IN PERFECT WORKING CONDITION. IT COMES WITH THE 3.11 OS (NOT THE VALIXI UPGRADE, 3.11 IS THE ORIGINAL OS SHIPPED WITH THIS MACHINE).
UNLIKE NEWER MPC MODELS THIS OS IS EXTREMELY STABLE AND HAS NEVER CRASHED ON ME IN ALL THE TIME I’VE HAD IT.
COMES WITH ORIGINAL 3.5” FLOPPY DISK DRIVE WHICH USES DD DISKS (THESE CAN BE EASILY FOUND AT PLACES LIKE OFFICE MAX/STAPLES, ETC FOR LESS THAN TEN DOLLARS A BOX) BUT WITH THE 3ooo LE A BUILT IN SCSI PORT IS STANDARD (UNLIKE THE OG 3ooo WHERE IT WAS AN ADDED FEATURE).
THIS ONE HAS NO VGA PORT ON THE BACK (STANDARD FOR THIS MACHINE;VGA IS EXTRA).
ALL THE INPUTS/OUTPUTS WORK AND ALL THE PADS RESPOND PERFECTLY
THE ONLY FLAWS WITH THIS MACHINE ARE COSMETIC. THEY ARE:

-STOP BUTTON IS BROKEN (JUST THE BUTTON ITSELF, NOT THE SENSOR UNDERNEATH. THIS CAN BE REPLACED EASILY) BUT IT DOES WORK YOU HAVE TO PRESS IT A LITTLE HARDER
-SOFT KEY 1 IS BROKEN (SAME AS STOP BUTTON, EASILY FIXED FOR CHEAP)
A FEW NICKS IN THE PAINT JOB BUT NOTHING MAJOR MOST OF THEM CANT BE SEEN UNLESS YOURE LOOKING FOR THEM
-THE BACKLIGHT WORKS BUT AS WITH MOST OF THESE MACHINES THEY ARE ALMOST TEN YEARS OLD AND THE BACKLIGHT IS STARTING TO DIM A BIT. BUT THE TEXT ON THE SCREEN CAN BE SEEN CLEARLY.

MPC 3000, 32MB, Unknown OS

Thursday Sep 25, 2008


“This a MPC 3000 in good condition. I am selling this for a friend and really don’t know much about the MPC 3000 other than that its suppose to be easy to use and make your drums punchy. From what i see the screen looks good (couldn’t take a good picture of it) and the unit is in good shape. The one thing i notice is that the play button works but doesn’t compress like the other buttons. Other than that it seems to work great. Comes with power cord and 32 meg upgrade. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Thank you for looking!” Link
