Item is being sold as-is for parts or repair.

This old school Akai MPC 2000 is in fair, working condition with some signs of wear like scuffs and chipping paint. It comes with the cords and floppy disk with MPC 2000 OS 1.72 pictured above. It has the 8 outputs and 32MB memory expansions. ” Link

slider not working bit I think it needs to be cleaned which I will do if it sells but I cant promise it will fix it. who uses the slider anyway.
On the other hand the Compace flash card readet makes this machine so better to use without thw zip and floppy disc hassle.” Link

custom 2500 “Killer Deal! This unit is used in great condition. Includes hardware, power cable and I am also throwing in an i-series SKB hard shell foam padded waterproof case (a $100.00 value). This unit has been inspected and needs the pad sensor replaced ($75.00 part on ebay, Original Series pad sensor, not second series.) Recommend just watching a tutorial on replacing the sensor, very easy and not worth paying repair costs, I have replaced several of these for others in the past, it’s about a 25 minute job, mostly unscrewing the case and removing knobs, very simple! Upgraded to MPC 5000 last month and no longer have use for this wonderful machine, hoping it goes to a good producer/home.” Link

custom akaimpc500 “(Updated) Now with red two tone theme(similar to also mpc 2000 xl se3) dark red satin painted body and custom vinyl skin top. Everthing else is still the same as original listing. New photos at the end

Hello

This listing is for a sweet Akai MPC 500 that has been fully customized with a red vinyl skin, red slider cap, black button set, fat red pads, classic black mpc style jog wheel, black cursor and a red LCD screen (the volume and record knobs are painted semi gloss black). One thing to point out is in the last 2 pictures and this is how I received it originally. The 2 pins that clip in and hold the ram in place is missing and discontinued. I was told to use a hot glue gun by mpcstuff but I just found a couple neoprine spacers that keep it firmly in position with the battery door attached and closed. Item functions flawlessly and included is power supply 1gb c.f. card and headphones. Don’t let this one get away…. They do not make them like they used to.

I will also include original pads and screen plus my own auto load set of drum kits on the c.f. card.” Link

custom2k “You are bidding on an AKAI MPC2000 Midi Production center, expanded to 32 megs of ram, it was recently serviced and a brand new slider
was installed. It comes with blue pads and a custom layer. Normally, the MPC 2000 does not have an inched LCD screen, so this unit was customized to do so.
The LCD screen is not fixed (screwed in) to the machine it resides on the board behind it (which is protected with electric tape, see picture).
The LCD works 100% and has no white lines in it. All buttons and pads work.
The standard floppy drive was also replaced by a USB floppy emulator, allowing you to store up to 100 floppy images on a USB pen drive, in order to quickly exchange files with your computer.
It also comes with a power cord. The unit has obviously some small scuffs/scratches all around due to its age but nothing major and overall very clean, see the pictures. The unit is 100% functional.” Link

4k “This is a custom built and refurbished to new AKAI MPC 4000 production center. It was serviced and customized by GHOSTINMPC. If you are not familiar with his work, just Google him.

The unit I had built is an all Walnut wood (REAL WOOD) chassis unit with black metal knobs, black buttons, and he even colored the screen bezel black (originally blue). All the tact switches, sliders and sensors are brand new. The LCD screen is new. Looks like one that would come on a brand new unit. GHOSTINMPC made this unit to run like it has never been used, and it does.

The unit is whisper quiet and absolutely FLAWLESS. You do not find AKAI MPC 4000 is this condition often. The only reason I can’t list as new is because I don’t have the original box and contents other than the manual. The details on this unit will absolutely astound you. It took just under 2 months to be completed. This unit will not disappoint you in the slightest. I did not spend much time on the unit, maybe 2 hours tops.

Highlighted Specs:

– 512MB RAM
– EFFECTS CARD INSTALLED
– 80 GB HARD DRIVE
– ALL NEW TACTS, SWITCHES, SENSORS & LCD SCREEN
– NO 8 OUTS or ADAT CARD (Can find on eBay very cheap!)
– NO CD DRIVE (I didn’t want one installed, they cause issues. Not sure why anyone would need one in 2016. Just use the USB port, plug in a USB CD Drive, USB HD or Flash Drive. If you do want a CD drive they can be found for dirt cheap on here.)” Link

customcmo2 “UPGRADED AKAI MPC 3000 — FULLY MODERNIZED WORKSTATION

New Pads
New Pad Sensors
CF RaizinMonster Compact Flash Reader
Vailxi 3.50 OS
32 MB tested 100% working Memory
New Main Selector Encoder
New LED Screen – so bright you need shades!
Audio Connectors Re-soldered and Tested
Digital In tested 100%
SMPTE Card tested 100%

I purchased this MPC in January 2016. I personally made all upgrades to make this the center of my music production environment, adding all possible modernizations and upgrades to most state of the art MPC 3000 as possible. All encoders and buttons were cleaned and checked to be 100% functional. I replaced the main selector encoder, added new pad sensors and new pads, all from MPC Stuff.com. Installed a new CF RaizinMonster Compact flash reader. I also replaced the LCD screen with a new LED screen from Kanamit, which is so bright and readable, much better then any stock screen with a backlight. I also repaired all the audio connectors which solder traces had become loose from years of plugging and unplugging cables into the jacks. (I would say that this is normal wear and tear for a unit of this age). Also thanks to the info provided by Kanamit, I lowered the noise floor of the MPC by creating an additional ground from the Audio I/O circuits and Card Reader circuit, which has been pointed out as an issue that MPCs have with card readers installed. The floppy drive acted as a grounding plain, that is disrupted when the CF reader is installed. Also the unit is upgraded with proper memory to its max 32 MB. Bad memory will read in the start up screen but will corrupt samples, this is 100% good memory. Although some of the silk screening is worn on the unit but the electronics and functionality are 100%. Over $500 of upgrades on this amazing machine!” Link

Comes with 2GB flash card with plenty of samples to get you started and a tutorial if you’re new to the MPC1000

Smoke free unit

Maxed out sample memory

Real wood end caps

Custom brushed aluminum look skin

JJOS 3.16 installed

New style pads and sensitivity upgrade

This upgrade keeps the normal look of the pads but, in my opinion, makes for better sensitivity than the thick fat pads you can get for it

Also comes with power cord” Link

Für alle Oldschool Groover oder für die, die es werden wollen. Ich biete hier meinen Akai MPC 3000 zum Verkauf an.

Ich denke wer dieses Gerät sucht, weiß was er will und ich erspare mir an dieser Stelle die Hinweise auf Sound und Groove…was natürlich überragend ist, wenn man auf diesen Vintage Sound steht:)

Alles läuft, er funktioniert einwandfrei. Wie auf dem Bild zu sehen ist, wurde er mit wood panels optisch aufgepeppt.

System: Vailixi 3.50, 32 MB sampling memory, Floppy Disc, Display ist nicht verwaschen oder so, Hintergrundbeleuchtung vollkommen i.O., leichte Gebrauchtspuren was bei diesem “Oldtimer” aber völlig normal ist.” Link
