Akai MPC 3000LE Limited Edition, Internal Card Reader

Monday Mar 6, 2017

mpc3000le “This MPC 3000 LE is a work of art!

Fully customized and one of a kind.

Brand new pads & pad sensors.

Brand new backlight/LED. (Super bright)

Maximum memory/Sample time.

Upgraded to 3.50 OS.

All buttons work flawlessly! Incredibly clean unit.

One of the best features is the new SD reader installed. It has improved my workflow in a major way. A lot of other MPC 3000s will come with a CF reader but hardly any have the SD reader.

Will include 2GB reader and power cord.

Only 2000 of these LE versions were made. Very Rare! I will include a heavy duty flight case/travel case for the mpc! ” Link

akaimpc3k “The unit powers up and plays samples/sequences but it does need a good cleaning (It came from a smoker’s studio). It’s the standard MPC 3000.

The display window is slightly dimmer than normal, and still lifts but one side is slightly broken (more pics are coming soon).

It was a going to be a project for me but I just don’t have the time to put in to getting it up to my cosmetic standards.” Link

mpc3000_le “The machine is in very good condition. Everything is working as it should. Its only flaw is that the screen has a dead “pixel row”, see the second picture. This is nothing thats bothering the work flow. Other than that the screen is bright and sharp.

Vailixi 3.5 and 32mb RAM is installed. Also a new pad sensor. Externally walnut wood panels from, new black pads and flashier controls are installed. All the buttons are coated in a matte black finish done by a pro and looks very good. All the original parts such as the panels, controls and pads are included. A Scsi Zip-drive and some discs are included as well.”

This is a used Akai MPC-3000. It has 32 MB of RAM, a new LCD display, and new pad sensor installed. OS version 3.11. All switches and inputs have been checked, as well as record and playback capabilities. The case shows some moderate wear-and-tear (see images for details), but nothing that physically impedes function. The tempo control slider is a little sticky in places, but still perfectly functional. It comes with a standard A/C cord.” Link

Akai MPC 3000 with External Zip Drive

Monday Feb 20, 2017

akaimpc3000 “Classic AKAI MPC 3000. In good working order. All individual outs working as are all other outputs.

In great shape and comes with used Iomega Zip drive and 5 brand new blank disks. I’ll even throw in some sample disks as I won’t need them any more.

Fantastic sounding machine.

Comes with Odyssey flight case and copy of Software version 3.1 Operator’s Manual.

Converted to 240 volts when I bought it from The States on eBay in the 2000s. ”

Akai MPC 3000 with Internal Zip Drive

Monday Feb 6, 2017

mpc3000e “The MPC 3000 was introduced in 1993 and is often regarded as one of the best sounding MPCs ever, if you are reading this chances are you know what’s up and no further explanation is necessary. Over the years many of these units have become more rare and harder to find in as good condition as the one up for sale. I’ve personally used this drum machine for the last 7 years. Always taken care of and is in great condition not just cosmetically but functionally as well. Please feel free to ask any and all questions! I look forward to having her go to a good home :)

-Internal Zip drive, personally I prefer this over the external one since it takes up less space. (zip disks not included)
-Fat pads (from
-New pad sensors, installed about 2 years ago for better sensitivity

-Has some wear around the wheel due to years of spinning it around
-Has a few light scratches (nothing major) if you look around the pics you will see them
-The back serial code was half torn off, was like this when I bought it years back
-The right side/part that connects to the arm rest is a little bit loose but only on the right side and you wont even notice it while you are using it. Maybe missing a screw under the hood, not sure. Not a big deal but just wanted to point that out (no surprises)

-Do all the pads work? Yes they all work 100%, all memory banks as well
-Do the 8 outs on the back work? Yes
-Does the backlight still work? Yes, please see pics
-Are any knobs missing? No, everything is there *please see pics*
-How much memory does it have? I believe it has 8mb since the total amount of memory available when loading sounds is 8060. If you want to upgrade to 32mb you can get memory sticks on ebay for about $30-40usd. I never needed more so I never bothered with it
-How much sampling time does it come with? 93.4 seconds for mono, divide that by 2 for stereo
-Does the midi work? I never sampled into it with midi but I was able to use it to sync up to my DAW successfully with no issues
-What OS (operating system) does it come with? Comes with OS 3.11
*Power cord also included despite not being pictured”

Akai MPC 3000LE Limited Edition # 1073 with 32MB RAM, Internal Card Reader, IB-CRT VGA Expansion

Monday Feb 6, 2017

mpc3000_le “Hello and welcome to this auction. I am a home studio hobbyist and am putting up for sale some of my favorite pieces of gear. Please check my other auctions for nice vintage synthesizers and recording equipment.

For sale is an Akai MPC3000 Limited Edition No 1073. If you have been waiting for just the right 3000LE to get, this is the one.

Comes with all the upgraded features you’d want including:
- max memory
- CF card reader
- Valixii 3.50 OS
- Very rare VGA external monitor output. See the VGA output on the back above the unit above the Footswitch outputs. Most units have this section empty, hard to find with the VGA output. The VGA out lets you hook up the unit to an external VGA monitor instead of having to rely on the small screen. I have a spare VGA monitor I can include with the unit for free as long as you cover the additional shipping costs ($40 in the USA, $120 abroad). The monitor is nothing too special but just thought I’d offer, it’s maybe around 15″. Sorry I don’t have pictures of the monitor. ” Link

Akai MPC 3000 with 32MB RAM

Saturday Feb 4, 2017

mpc3k “This MPC works perfectly. New backlight and pads installed by Forat about 2 years ago. He also made sure everything is running well. Vailixi OS is also installed. I live in NYC and work in the music biz. I bought this from Les himself about 4 years ago. As you can see, he signed it. It has some signs of use on the edges but it works just like new. See the photos. The data fader cap is a replacement. Many, many classic songs were made on this machine. I’m not using it enough music to justify keeping it, and can use some dollars right now, so I’m passing it on.

Memory is Max I believe – When I turn on the MPC and go to sample, it gives 188.4 seconds of mono sampling, and 94.2 of Stereo sampling.” Link

I bought them with all intentions of using/ savings them for that day but I have decided to stick with my mpc 4000… for what I do.. both mpc’s are maxed on memory & scsi ports all functions are working wanted to put cf readers in them but the wait for them is still a wait lol.. I did order floppy insulator for the will be included they both can use back lights very dim in the dark! just never rushed to change them ..also have some extra items like scsi 100zip drive & cd-drive for the mpc 3000 they come as a combo! I have used them & to the best of my knowledge every thing is working ..they are used but they look great for the age they will be pack separate 3000 has hard metal case.. 60 will be in box..” Link

Akai MPC 3000LE Limited Edition #0670 with 32MB RAM, Internal Card Reader

Wednesday Jan 18, 2017

mpc3000le “Akai MPC 3000 LE plate number 0670 of 2000
Operationally all lights, buttons and pads work.
OS updated with the Vailixi 3.5 operating system.
Ram upgraded to the max 32 mb.
Scsi2SD card reader installed, and unit will ship with an 8gb micro sd card pre-formatted. This is a great improvement on load times and also dependability over floppy and zip disks.

Why is this unit priced so low compared to other LE’s $2399 – $3000?

1.As a frequent buyer of used gear ( I like to try out different toys), I believe that condition factors into the price and always aim to be 100% accurate in my listings. While being operationally 100%, this unit has some wearing in the paint, and a few other scuffs (see pics).

2. The unit is missing the original note variation slider cap. I have ordered a replacement from , which is on its way. Per MPC Stuff website, it is not the original cap, but will get the job done.

This is your chance to get a LIMITED EDITION at the cost of a regular mpc3000!!” Link
