Akai MPC 3000LE Limited Edition #1139 with 32MB RAM, Internal Card Reader

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

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.”

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

I just haven’t had the time to get it back to 100%. Meaning it needs a slider knob for the tone variation. The limited edition name plate is missing and needs a new volume board ( the one now makes some static noise when adjust the volume. Screen doesn’t have any dead spots.

mp3c000le “This is an auction for the MPC 3000 limited edition. Only 2000 were made when released in 2000. The MPC 3000 is known for its punch and focused sound. The filters are also famous for their “knocking” like character. Much like the MPC 60, the 3000 distorts beautifully—unlike any plugin I’ve ever used. It has a very unique and instantly recognizable character overall. It is the MPC for the “Golden era” of hip hop!

It has a stereo/16 bit sampling engine. But don’t be fooled by the numbers; it has a very punchy, crunchy quality to it that is very similar to the MPC 60. It’s not what I would call “CD quality” clarity! This machine has attitude!!

This unit has been totally refurbished by the famous MPC guru, Bruce Forat. Every tac switch (button sensor) has been replaced, new display, new pad sensor, the most current OS (Vailixi 3.50), maximum ram (32mb) and is in overall great condition. It also comes with a tough road case to protect the unit and to store from dust.

The sale comes with:

-Main unit

-Power cable

-Zip drive

-SCSI cable

-Zip disk with Forat sounds

-Road case

Disclaimers:

Though every button works great, it is the nature of the instrument that a button may not trigger and you may have to press it again. Though I don’t have this problem, it can be an issue to users that press lightly.

The display is new, but again, the nature of all early MPC’s are that the displays aren’t super bright to begin with. Though, the display is very easy to read in normal circumstances.

The overall condition is very good. There is normal wear for its age (small scratches). No dents or deep scratches. It is also very common for the paint to wear off on the thin plastic strips on the sides of the unit. They could easily be removed and repainted—I couldn’t be bothered since I don’t notice it.” Link
