Akai MPC 3000

Thursday May 18, 2017

“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.”

“I bought this from Guitar Center about a half year ago from their used center and I don’t use it as much as I should. This think is pretty heavy though and I’m not sure I want to ship. Local pick up only please! Lancaster, PA (about an hour outside Philly)” 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

“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.”

Akai MPC 3000 with 32MB RAM

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

akaimpc3000 “Akai MPC 3000, legendary Machine is fully functional. Back Light is out but screen displays fine. Stop button is loose but works and slider is a little stiff. Volume works but volume pot is scratchy when and only when turning up or down. This can be a great addition to a serious musicians collection. Priced for as is. Includes Midi Mark start up sound disk and power cord.” Link

3k “Akai MPC3000 sampler sequencer and drum machine. Standard model with no upgrades of any description. Backlight needs replacing although perfectly usable in lit conditions. Please see the photos which form part of the description. Paint worn on side panels as usual, but otherwise good condition cosmetically. Usual signs of wear as to be expected. No manual supplied but I will provide one drum program on floppy disk to get you going.

Everything works as it should and the sampler has been priced to sell. This is a cash on collection only sale so the buyer can see the machine working and go home happy. Probably the cheapest MPC3000 on eBay at the moment. I should point out that the blanking panel for the VGA output is not present the hole is covered with electrical tape, and there is a small nick on the side panel as shown in photo. Overall, this MPC3000 is in good condition and will get the job done for many years to come.” Link

Akai MPC 3000 with 32MB RAM, Internal Card Reader

Monday Apr 3, 2017

mpc300032 “Whoa. I have used this fine machine on many records. All the Resplendent , The Fire Show and Tough Solar LPs. It is a champ.

I got it serviced at Forat in LA by Bruce Forat. He went over everything in the machine. Replaced some wiring, the button boards, installed the fat pads, installed the Vailixi upgrade to the OS, and basically confirmed that every feature of the machine works properly.

It is now quiet and fast. The pads trigger well and all buttons are fluid and engage smoothly.

These machines are historic as well as being easy to use and built to be beaten on.

I have not found much use for it lately in my studio so I am selling it. Please realize that I am not selling it on to get rid of a problem. Without getting into a flame war, I will say that there are many sellers here who knowingly and unknowingly sell basket case MPCs as fully functioning. This is not one of them.” Link

Akai MPC 3000 with Internal Zip Drive

Friday Mar 31, 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 🙂

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

Blemishes:
-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)

FAQ:
-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, 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

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

Akai MPC 3000LE Limited Edition

Sunday Feb 26, 2017

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 Mpcstuff.com, 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.”
