Akai MPC 3000LE Limited Edition # 0481 with 32MB RAM, Internal Card Reader

Monday Jun 11, 2018

“Fully maxed out MPC 3000 limited edition with CF card reader, 32mb RAM, Vailixi 3.5 OS, and bright/clean screen.

I love this machine. I’ve been an MPC user all my life and the MPC 3000 is the best of the best.

Everything works properly and had been inspected and restored by Bruce Forat. I have used and tested this device and it’s flawless.

Note: The casing had some scratches and a crack to the top left side panel. None of the cosmetic problems effect the performance, sound, or playability of the unit at all. I wanted to replace with custom wood panels, but they have been hard to come by lately. If you are looking for a cosmetic upgrade, you can find normal MPC 3000 side panels on ebay for pretty cheap. See photos for details on the scratches.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Custom Akai MPC 3000 with 32MB RAM, Internal Zip Drive

Thursday Jun 7, 2018

“I believe this to be a Forat modified MPC3000. While I can’t ask the original owner if this is true it has the look of his work. Very professional. Custom wood sides. Internal scsi, zip100 Drive. External ide port. 32 megs of Ram. 8outs, black pads. Around $1300+ of modifications alone. I removed the original owners custom logo because it was no longer his. It left a slight shine to the powder coating. You can see where the logo used to be above the display of you look at it at just the right angle. But otherwise it’s not noticeable. It never bothered me. Everything works great. Beast of a sampler!!”

“Hello and thanks for stopping by:). Here we have a Mpc 3000 in good cosmetic shape overall:). My rating speaks for itself and honesty is what every buyer deserves so here are some very minor issues that you should know:) There are few dead pads but upon checking the 16 levels tune, most of the pads still do work:). The step edit button is pressed in but still works when presed:) There are some cracks under the arm rest area and slight rust as shown in the pic but nothing to worry about as this unit is fairly clean. Might be one of the cleaner ones Ive seen and Im pretty picky:). The stop and f1 button need a little more pressing but again, both still works!! The price reflects the cometic cleanliness and minor issues so why not save yourself some $$$ and see what this monster can do and more importantly this mpc still works! When comparing the 3000 to some of the other mpcs, aside from the 60, this thing blows your speaker because it hits so well!! All parts have been documented and video recorded for your protection and mine. There are no returns but don’t worry because you will get exactly what is described and pictured:) Thanks again!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Tuesday May 22, 2018

“Fat pad and touch sensor are installed, so sensitivity is good. Memory can be added and sampled in stereo for 58 seconds. Although the liquid crystal panel book back light does not emit lightning, it can be used because it can be checked for minutes to use in a room with normal lighting. Power cable is missing.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Custom Akai MPC 3000

Saturday May 5, 2018

“Up for sale is my custom Bruce Forat modded Akai Mpc 3000. Bruce updated to the best software (3.5Vailixi)and cleaned all the pots and sliders. It has a brand new internal screen and custom Chrome Face plate which is 700 upgrade which makes it look wild. The only problem with chrome is it shows smudges and scratches. Wood front and side panels are maple. Only a little chunk got knocked out of the one side of the wood panels see in pic. The unit is used so it does have scratches and is not mint but nothing major is wrong. Brand new Fat pads w/sensors and a brand new spare white pads set if you want to swap them around. Machine functions like a dream and plays perfectly. Best sounding Mpc period and ive owned them all.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai MPC 3000LE Limited Edition #0461 with 32MB RAM, Internal Card Reader

Tuesday Apr 17, 2018

“Akai MPC 3000 LE in good condition. Has the Roger Linn 3.11 OS, not Valixi. Microtech card reader (the good expensive rare one) New thick black pads (MPC Stuff). New backlight. New tact switches on every button. New 3D printed buttons. 3D modeling professionally commissioned based on original buttons and buttons printed at Shapeways. Every single button replaced. New 3D printed buttons have a nice texture to them. New black volume and recording level knobs (MPC Stuff). Also comes with the original buttons and knobs. A few of the original buttons have broken from age but all of them will be included should you wish to reinstall them or sell them or attempt repair.

No reserve. Amazing machine in great condition. Vintage gear, including this one, have marks from years and years of use and are not for perfectionists. Music is not perfect. Good vintage gear is not perfect. If you don’t have experience with vintage gear and their associated imperfections I’d kindly ask you to move on to another auction. This machine has marks and scratches and bruises and is not perfect. It will last for years to come. It will make great music. It is as refurbished as I could manage and is functionally awesome and costmetically pretty darn sharp.”

“This MPC 3000 is in excellent to near-mint condition and 100% functional.

The screen and pads are original, with the brightness and sensitivity still fine. The memory was maxed to 32mb and the OS upgraded to 3.5 (Vailixi). I’m including the 3.11 OS eproms if someone prefers to switch back.

I’m also including the following parts (worth $200) to replace the floppy with an SD drive:
 - Stratos Technology SCSI adapter & instructions
 - SCSI2SD V5.0b drive
 - Mounting bracket
Installation, if desired, is very straightforward well documented online.

This is a beautiful tank of a machine and truly rare to find one in this amazing condition.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
