Akai MPC 3000LE Limited Edition 0378

Tuesday Oct 23, 2018

“Up for sell is my LOW NUMBER Mpc 3000 LE Midi Production Center No. 0378. it’s in great condition considering it’s age, there’s a bit of rusting around the jog wheel and light ware towards the top right vents. If you know anything about these limited edition models, such rusting is common. I took off the sticker seen in the photos, because it was on the unit for so long it left a light square from where the sticker used to be (See photo) I have some Vallixi 3.50 chips I will include with the unit as well as power cable. I no longer use it and would like to find it a new home where it’ll get proper hand on time.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai MPC 3000LE Limited Edition # 0481 with 32MB RAM, Internal Card Reader

Monday Jun 11, 2018

“Fully maxed out MPC 3000 limited edition with CF card reader, 32mb RAM, Vailixi 3.5 OS, and bright/clean screen.

I love this machine. I’ve been an MPC user all my life and the MPC 3000 is the best of the best.

Everything works properly and had been inspected and restored by Bruce Forat. I have used and tested this device and it’s flawless.

Note: The casing had some scratches and a crack to the top left side panel. None of the cosmetic problems effect the performance, sound, or playability of the unit at all. I wanted to replace with custom wood panels, but they have been hard to come by lately. If you are looking for a cosmetic upgrade, you can find normal MPC 3000 side panels on ebay for pretty cheap. See photos for details on the scratches.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

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 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”.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

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.”

Akai MPC 3000LE Limited Edition # 1264 with Internal Zip Drive

Tuesday Nov 14, 2017

” This is number 1264 of the legendary Akai MPC3000LE (limited-edition), one of the greatest (if not THE greatest) sampling drum machines of all time. I originally bought it when I was working for a hip-hop production studio in Los Angeles, where it was used on some great productions, and always treated with care and reverence.
This machine also has a ZIP drive (and comes with a small selection of great ZIP discs). It runs on U.S. voltage, so if you intend to use it in the U.K./Europe you will need a transformer. Since its importation from the U.S. four years ago, it has been used in a clean, smoke-free recording studio in East Anglia. This is a very reluctant sale, but in recent years I find that I have not been using this MPC as much as it deserves, and would prefer it to be used more frequently by somebody who appreciates its legacy and will enjoy the unique sonic aesthetic that it can bring to music production of all genres. This machine, like others including the SP-12 and the Roland TR-808, is becoming more and more sought-after and valuable as the years go by, and as a limited edition is even more collectable.
Comes with a hard case for transportation, and original manual.”
