Friday Dec 8, 2017

“y Limited Edition MPC 3000 No. 0333, 100% Functional, Good Cosmetic Condition (see pics).

This mpc comes with the now impossible to get Vailixi 3.50 software which adds extra functionality.

32MB of RAM.

Also this comes with a nice modern external CF card reader drive and multiple CF cards (Non hot swappable), and of course the built in floppy drive.

This is a 220v American unit so i’ve included a step down transformer to be used in the U.K and Europe.

Comes with its own flight case for travel and safety.

Backlight is bright (see pics).

Recently serviced (within the last year or so) by Jazzcat, an mpc technician based here in the U.K.

All the cabling you will need to hook up everything.

Recently installed brand new pad sensor sheet from mpc stuff.com.

I also recently purchased fat black pads (not pictured) from mpc stuff.com which I will include.

I love this baby, i’ve cherished it over the years, i’ve taken great care of it. You’ll have everything you need to get started as soon as you receive it, works flawlessly, great machine.”

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.”

Thursday Jun 22, 2017

“Thank you for stopping by my auction…
For sale is a Akai MPC 3000 Limited Edition #1139 in very good working condition – for its age it looks & operates great! It never left my studio (unless serviced), never gigged, was pampered in a smoke-free environment. If you’ve been waiting on the perfect unit with extras – here it is!

Features & extras include:

– Maxed out memory -32mb
– CF card reader installed – Read below
– Valixii 3.50 OS – Dope chip expanding creativity & flow on the 3000..!!!
– Internal Zip drive – New never installed sitting on the 3000 in the 4th pic
– Throwing in 4 new 250mb Iomega zip disk
– If you care to install a floppy drive – Throwing in a number of floppies

I had my tech guy replace to disk drive with a CF reader – we never got it to work – decided to just use the SCSI for importing & saving, it’s quick & easy. Maybe you can get the card reader to work if you’re really techie, or just install the new internal zip drive I’m throwing in. ” Link

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.

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 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 MPCStuff.com , 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
