Akai MPC 3000

Tuesday Oct 3, 2017

“For sale is an affordable used MPC 3000. This MPC was left for years unused in a basement by my brother. It has a few scratches as shown in the picture. I had it cleaned and all tact switches replaced. It has a little static in the volume knob (easy fix). Other than that it sounds great and I’d hate to sell but it needs a little more attention than I have for it and it’s just taking up space. I don’t know much about the MPC 3000 so I’m selling it AS-IS absolutely no returns.”

Akai MPC 3000 with 32MB RAM, External Zip Drive

Monday Sep 25, 2017

“Up for sale is my MPC-3000 being sold for no other reason than I just don’t use it and the sight of it reminds me that I don’t use it. It has 32 MB of RAM onboard (the max as far I can tell), an accompanying ZIP 250 SCSI drive, and the original manual (bound by the previous owner with a poster of Bruce Lee for inspiration). It’s in quite good physical shape considering its age and average functional shape. All the buttons work, the drive mounts effortlessly, the inputs and outputs are clean. It has a brand new NOS inverter for the display and a low hours ELD backplate. That being said, the display is not very bright — almost unnoticeably brighter with the backlight on or off. This hasn’t been a problem for me as I don’t work in complete darkness and the display is very clear with most any level of ambient light. I think a solid cleaning of the switches would help triggering sensitivities and responsiveness of the commands and data entry buttons. Software version is 3.11. Comes ready to roll. Feel free to ask any questions. No returns, but guaranteed not DOA. Low starting price. Buyer pays actual shipping costs. It’s 25 pounds and 18″ x 16″ x 6″ before packing. Free shipping with Buy It Now.” Link

“From my personal studio, for sale is an Akai MPC3000 Limited Edition. This is the ONE to get! Maxed out, Vailixi 3.50 OS, with card reader, upgraded screen, custom black pads, jog wheel and data slider. Minty shape and 100% fully functional. The upgraded screen is so bright the camera had trouble taking pictures of it, in person it looks fantastic. So easy to read and it is high quality so it will never go bad. This one has been really babied and lightly used and it shows. ” Link

“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

“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
