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.”

Akai MPC 3000 with 32MB RAM

Tuesday Apr 17, 2018

“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.” Link

Recently serviced (within the last year or so) by Jazzcat, an MPC technician based here in the U.K.
Recently installed brand new pad sensor sheet from mpc stuff.com.
There is some slight discoloring on the body from use and where the paint has worn. I have tried to document this in the photos. See for example around jog dial.”

Akai MPC 3000LE Limited Edition #0483

Saturday Mar 3, 2018

“Pre-owned Akai Mpc 3000 LE, Serial # 0483 in “very good” functional condition and ‘Okay” cosmetic condition. All buttons, rotary knobs, and pads, and the pitch control work great. LCD Screen is very bright and works well. The LCD screen is “Stuck” in the flat position which does not affect the function, (may have come off the track).

The unit face has a few scratches notably at the top of the LCD screen by the LE Silver Placard, a small puncture directly in the “M” above the LCD screen, and discoloration below the LCD screen. Also a few other surface scratching around the pads and armrest, (see pictures). The unit is missing the slider cap for the pitch control slider but does not affect the pitch function. Around Soft key #1 the faceplate looks modified, (see pictures). Buttons and pads feel and look new although I can’t verify if so……

I have tried to describe the unit as best as I can, but, please see the posted pictures documenting the cosmetic condition of the MPC 3000LE even further.

Old school original 3.5 floppy disk.

“Comes with power chord only”.” Link

Akai MPC 3000 with External Zip Drive

Thursday Feb 22, 2018

“Very good Condition, and Tested-Working, in Hard-shell Flight Case with SCSI ZIP 250 Drive, ZIP Tapes and Original Manual with free, brand-new back-light included.

Very slight paint wear to rear top edge, letters wearing around data wheel. The 3000 is mounted to a rack tray by the pre-existing foot-mounting holes- great care was taken to ensure that the unit stay as original as possible. The rack tilts forward about 30 degrees, and this, combined with the angled screen, allows quick and easy operation of the MPC 3000, despite the dimming back-light.

I had it in storage for a time, but have been using it pretty consistently for about a month, and have found that about 3 of the buttons dont take well to being struck like sample pads anymore, but WILL trigger every time if you come down on them slowly, but with deliberate pressure. It wasnt long before i noticed that the screen is no longer visible in dim lighting, so i ordered a new back-light. I am including it for free with the 3000, but i havent needed to change it yet (instead, adjusting studio lighting and arrangement), and im not really motivated to crack open such an exquisite machine; however, that may change- depending on how long it takes for this listing to sell. ” Link

Akai MPC 3000

Sunday Feb 11, 2018

“Up for sale is an Akai MPC 3000 Sampler. Very good cosmetic condition for the age (see photos).

Features:
– 32 MB RAM
– OS 3.11
– Voltage 220V

Also included:
– New pad sensors (not installed)
– Tact switches (not installed)

Works well, except for the issues described below. I haven’t tried to fix these issues, some may be easy to fix.

– 1. High pitch noise on the headphones output. The noise is of very low volume, so the headphones output is still perfectly usable. This is a common problem on the MPC 3000: http://www.mpc-forums.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=129647
– 2. High pitch noise on the left channel of the record input when monitoring is “on” and no cables are connected to the record inputs. This is not a problem because when line cables are connected to the record inputs the noise goes away.
– 3. The pad sensor sheet needs to be replaced. Four of the sixteen pads don’t respond. A brand new pad sensor is included but not installed.
– 4. The key “Soft Key 1″ works but needs to be pressed hard. It will soon need a new tact switch. I will include a few tact switches in the package. All other keys work fine without the need to be pressed hard.
– 5. The volume control knob as a minor problem: When the volume is at zero, the left channel of the phones and left channel of the main outs can still be heard.
– 6. The disk drive is a little noisy when is reading and writing, but it works fine.
– 7. The plastic side panel (the one on the right) is detached at one point, it has a gap of a few millimeters (see photo).” Link

Akai MPC 3000LE Limited Edition Project Machine

Thursday Feb 1, 2018

“I have for sale an Akai MPC 3000 LE Sampling Drum Machine. This MPC is in beautiful physical condition, but it isn’t working properly. When power is applied, all of the LEDs are lit and the screen is blank. Its being sold as is, for parts. I acquired this in a local studio buy-out. I don’t know the cause of the problem, or the history of this MPC. The blue buttons are MPC 3000 originals, not painted. The pads are brand new. There are a few scuffs, but its very clean. The transport buttons are especially nice. If you can fix this, or use it to upgrade your beige MPC 3000, its an absolute steal! I will pack this very well, and fully insure. Again, this MPC is not working properly and priced accordingly.”

Machine looks very nice. Normal wear but you can see it’s been very well cared for.

Snatch this up and get to making some beats with that classic feel and sound. MPC 3000 has that magic timing. Priced to move, don’t sleep. Thanks for looking.”
