” This is a used but in excellent condition. I have installed a 40gbhd, comes with a memory .card and the ram has been upgraded by not maxed out. Great machine but I’m moving on,” Link
“You are viewing a vintage MPC 60. This is the original model as designed by the man himself, Roger Linn (of Linn Drum fame)- the MPC 60 is not only a sampler but a sequencer which even in 2014 can be the heart of your set up. Mk1 model with V3.1 OS loaded and maxed out memory.
Akai MPC 60
Compact Flash (CF) SCSI drive from http://www.mpcstoragesolution.com/ and connecting cable
Disks- Akai sample sets and 10 (!) sample disks from Midi Mark of various drum hits and loops
Foam case for MPC 60 with carrying handles (although it’s a large unit, I wouldn’t make a habit of carrying it around)
Original manuals and manual for OS 3.10
Everything works as it should, however I will note that there is a slight audible hum when the unit is on. I have not noticed any effect on performance, so I ignore it (I am a musician, not a technician). Just be advised. Otherwise condition is clean but with usage wear as the photos show.” Link

” This S950 hasn’t been used since we closed our studio. We lost the power cable, so just got one from Europe and put a UK plug on it. If it sells outside the UK, it will be sent with a power cable with a Schuko connector.
Standard memory size, has the later v1.02 software in it. See the third pic for a boot-up shot .Working fine, including the floppy drive. We’ve recorded a sample , stored It to disk , and reloaded it without any issues.
Like most of the the s950 samplers the display is darker than it was when it was new, but it’s legible ( see third pic..) and if you want, you can easily put in one of the modern pretty-coloured and bright displays from eBay, and a lot of S950 owners seem to be replacing the floppy drive with an SD card unit,which you can also get on eBay.
The options bay blank metal cover plate is missing on the back panel. See the pic…I think there might have been a drum trigger card in there at some point.” Link
“This is an original vintage Akai MPC 60 made by Roger Linn. This specific mpc is in great condition and has been upgraded from it’s original form. I’ve personally used this machine to make a collection of beats and this MPC is one the best. Overall this is a clean machine but there are a few marks in the paint, missing eject button on floppy drive (still functional though) and two hair sized scratches on the screen casing itself. When I bought this mpc, it did not have the gray side panels. I’ve seen these panels sell as little as $30. The plastic side panels are only for looks. None of these things effect the functionality of the mpc. I personally upgrade the software from the standard 2.12 to version 3.10e which makes the MPC 60 function as a MPC 3000. The memory on this MPC was doubled. The original sampling time was 13.1 seconds but the expansion makes the MPC able to have up to 26.2 seconds of sampling time.” Link
“HI , upgrading from my MPC1000… Fully functioning and clean…has been kept in a plastic home made flightcase for the duration of ownership. there are a few slight marks which i have shown in images. This item ships with all items shown: Flightcase – original box and all manuals – plug – 2 x memory cards.” Link
“For sale here is an Akai Mpc 1000. This specific model has some upgrades most do not have. For starters this MPC has a custom blue screen, instead of the stock green one. This mpc also has custom blue LED lights for the buttons. MOST IMPORTANTLY, this mpc has fat pad from (mpcstuff) with the upgraded pad sensors. For those who know, the pad sensors on the original 1000s were notoriously bad. Along with this will be included an 8gb compact flash card, which I will load with gigs of samples and drum sounds from my personal collection. Also I will include a usb card reader, which reads several media card types. This mpc has been well taken care. The mpc has minor signs of use, and has been in a smoke free environment. The only problem with this mpc is the card read button. The button is still there but the part that extends outside of the mpc is broken off. Do not fear, it can be pushed with an ink pen or something of the sort and functions as it normally would. ” Link

“Alles fast neue Sachen… Mit Zubehör aller möglichen Sachen… Hab nur gutes zu sagen. Trenne mich nicht gern.. Alles noch neuwertig.. Muss 3jahre weg… Deswegen das Dilemma” Link
Bottom cover plate for RAM compartment missing, and eject button for the CF card has broken off (very neatly, fortunately, and it is easy to eject by pushing the button in with an implement) – see photos – hence low Buy It Now price. All fully functional, so grab a bargain!
1GB CF card and power cable included. No original box but will be reboxed and very carefully packaged for transit” Link
Is in excellent condition, well worth an investment for an individual interested in real music production.” Link

” This is well loved top of the range Akai S1100
Original manual included” Link
Das Gerät hat die “thick fat pads” vom mpcstuff in schwarz eingebaut.
Diese pads sind wesentlich empfindlicher als die Original Akai-Pads.
Außerdem ist ein schwarzes Jog-Wheel und zwei graue Tasten verbaut.
(Auch beides von mpcstuff USA)
Die Original Teile liegen auch noch bei.
Infos über das Kult-Gerät gibt es massenhaft zB bei youtube.
Die MPC 500 kann mit 6 AA Batterien betrieben werden.
Die MPC hat einige kleinere Gebrauchsspuren (siehe Fotos) und manche der Tasten
(zB “ok”& “mode” – nicht die pads) reagieren minimal schwerfälliger als bei Neukauf.
(man muss also nur etwas fester drücken)” Link
Stereo Ein/Ausgänge Klinke + XLR
8 analoge Einzelouts Klinke
Das hinergrundbeleuchtete Display funktioniert, ist aber nur noch schwach. Empfehlung: MESA Editorsoftware als Free Download besorgen (macht die Bedienung um einiges komfortabler).
Das Gerät war Zeit seines Lebens im Rack eines (Nichtraucher-) Studios verschraubt und wurde neben zwei weiteren S2800 nur als Sampleplayer genutzt, daher kaum Abnutzungserscheinungen. Alle Anschlüsse sitzen fest auf der Platine, keine wackligen Kontakte. Die Bedienungselemente sind vollständig und funktionieren einwandfrei.” Link
