Akai MPC 3000

Monday Aug 14, 2017

“This is one of the cleanest MPC 3000’s I have ever seen in many years. The LCD has no cracks and is very bright. There are almost no cosmetic scratches anywhere on the unit. This unit has seen no usage over the last 15 or so years and should really go to someone who will use it to make music again. It’s a shame to have it sitting around doing nothing.

This is a rare gem… most of these classic units have been worn to pieces. The Original Instruction Manual is included.”

Akai MPC 3000 Project Machine

Saturday Aug 12, 2017

“Please read the entire description before bidding………. Akai MPC 3000 ” Roger Linn ” V-3.03 era machine up for grabs. This machine needs some TLC and is being sold AS IS with no return. I am no MPC expert but I went though the machine the best I could and this is what I found.

Confirmed Not working…………. Data entry button number 2, Curser Buttons, Real Time and transport button bank, soft keys are intermittent, Display Light.

Other issues……….. Movement in the Real Time and transport button bank when buttons are pressed, Data Slider Cap missing, Broken “stop” transport button, Screw on scsi port missing , Has a small plastic part rattle inside the case.

Not tested………..Pads, Passing Audio ” No Sounds”, Floppy Drive,

Yes it needs work but it’s a very expensive machine on the used marked once it’s brought back to life. I have not opened the unit and you’re getting it just as I received it. The machine seems solid and is in good cosmetic condition for it’s age. My description is honest and I spent a fair amount of time to make sure I covered everything. Having said that it’s likely I did not catch everything and you will discover other minor issues as the machine is being restored. This machine is a good buy if you know how to work on them and invest the time. Packing will be top notch. ” Link

“Selling my 3000, just need some money, great machine, it has great drum sampling and really warm sampling for other sounds, you can really tell where J Dilla gets his style from, just sample some bass and you can hear it. Running 3.16 operating system, which was pretty much the best one before Valixi. Will come with all the disks and the computer disk reader, and If you live in the area I’ll add in a few hundred records as well. Great Sampler and machine, really fun to train your ear and make music” Link

Akai MPC 3000 with Internal Card Reader Project Machine

Saturday Jul 15, 2017

“There are 2 flaws on this mpc. 1) Both recording inputs do work but for some weird reason I can’t get both to record in stereo I always recorded in mono since I just made hip-hop beats and was not a big issue for me I just made sampled beats. But both inputs do work just not in stereo recording just mono left/mono right as individual inputs. Again both do not work at the same time. 2) The SYNC board has gone bad. It’s hard to find one to replace. Other than those 2 issues everything else works fine. I suggest watching those two youtube videos to give you an understanding. I load a beat up pretty quick at SCSI writing speed.

MPC 3000 with new LCD screen. Selling as is, everything else works perfectly fine. Excellent low pass filter, has custom vailixi 3.5 O.S so you can chop/edit samples while the sequencer is playing. It has scsi2sd upgrade aswell which is an SD card that acts as a SCSI drive so you do not have to deal with any floppy disks or zip disks, you can save everything internally and then transfer it over to your laptop for backup by ejecting the SD card. It is internally inside the MPC 3000 so again no headache with floppys and the saving/loading time is 3x faster than floppy writing time. I will be double boxing the mpc 3000. Happy bidding! ” Link

Akai MPC 3000LE Limited Edition #1139 with 32MB RAM, Internal Card Reader

Thursday Jun 22, 2017

“Thank you for stopping by my auction…
For sale is a Akai MPC 3000 Limited Edition #1139 in very good working condition – for its age it looks & operates great! It never left my studio (unless serviced), never gigged, was pampered in a smoke-free environment. If you’ve been waiting on the perfect unit with extras – here it is!

Features & extras include:

– Maxed out memory -32mb
– CF card reader installed – Read below
– Valixii 3.50 OS – Dope chip expanding creativity & flow on the 3000..!!!
– Internal Zip drive – New never installed sitting on the 3000 in the 4th pic
– Throwing in 4 new 250mb Iomega zip disk
– If you care to install a floppy drive – Throwing in a number of floppies

I had my tech guy replace to disk drive with a CF reader – we never got it to work – decided to just use the SCSI for importing & saving, it’s quick & easy. Maybe you can get the card reader to work if you’re really techie, or just install the new internal zip drive I’m throwing in. ” Link

“Akai MPC 3000 by Roger Linn. This is the classic. Many producers have 3 or 4 of these units in their studios. This is a good working unit, but has some cosmetic issues. The LCD back light is out, but the screen still works as you can see in the pictures. The slider is missing a knob. The slider itself works. It just needs a new knob.

This unit came from the Guitar Center Pro Department in New York City and was used on some fairly well known songs, most notably “Ghetto Superstar” by Pras, Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Maya. However, I haven’t used it in over a decade. It’s looking for a new home and for someone to make music with it. ” Link

Sunday Apr 30, 2017

“This machine flat out works. I have spent the money to sort out everything. Many sellers on eBay sell these machines in poor condition and claim they work. This one actually does and is ready to go.

Included is a new set of sequencer control buttons–the two rows on the bottom right side of panel. See photo.

32 MB. Vailixi 3.5 OS. Complete Service 1/2017 by Forat. Every aspect of machine works and was fixed/verified by Forat. $1000 service total.

Custom rails. New Fat pads/sensors. New button boards. Wiring partially refurbished.

Notice superficial scratch on screen. Screen clear and strong. CF drive is very fast and so much better than Zip drives I have used previously.

Comes with original plastic rails and arm rest. Not shown in pictures. Power cord.” Link
