Akai MPC 60II with Expanded Memory

Monday Apr 23, 2018

“Regretfully Selling my mpc 60ii , the second one I had in my personal smoke free studio.
Owned about 15 years, new pad sensors, upgraded 3.15 os chips, maxed memory, backlight and black pads about 4 years ago. Floppy drive works good, and Pads , knobs, work like they should. Some cosmetic scuffs / bruises check pics, for a 30 year old unit not too bad. ” Link

Akai MPC 60 with OS3.10, Marion SCSI

Sunday Apr 15, 2018

“Selling an Akai/Roger Linn MPC 60 with some special upgrades and a little bit of history.

This particular unit was used in a major Seattle Recording Studio and is loaded with a Gotek USB Emulator, OS 3.10, the rare Marion Systems SCSI board, and a flight case.

For those that don’t know, the OS 3.10 brings the MPC 60 up to par with the MPC3000 OS. It is much more efficient and eliminates some of the drawbacks of the original MPC OS (for example, the original OS deletes sequences when sampling).

As someone that has extensively used the MPC 60, MPC 3000, and modern MPC’s I can tell you that the MPC 60 sequencer has some special magic. The MPC 60 has what I would describe as a lazy feel with a small amount of musical drift. It’s like having a good funk drummer playing back your samples/sequences.

The sound of the MPC 60 is also very special, it has a thick, saturated sound that again is different than any other MPC. It also has a unique Echo Mixer (essentially an aux send/return), which no other MPC has.

The unit is in good vintage condition (just the right amount of vintage). There are some nicks and scratches here and there, but it is generally in good condition cosmetically and functionally. All buttons are usable, however some do need a firm press (again, usable just not as responsive as when it was new).”

Akai MPC 60II with Expanded Memory, Floppy Emulator

Friday Apr 6, 2018

“MPC60 ii in great shape! The improved version of the first ever Akai MPC. Designed by Roger Linn, the godfather of drum machines. I also have an MPC 1000 and what you’ve heard is true: the older machines, designed by Linn and made in Japan, have much better punch, fatness and pads than the newer models If you are looking to make 90s boom bap (this is the same model which DJ Premier has been making hits on for three decades) or just want fat drums and the famous Linn swing, this is the drum machine for you!

This unit has max memory (26.2 seconds), a Gotek floppy emulator (which lets you store virtually unlimited data as opposed to shuffling through floppies), a new backlight, and is updated to the 3.10 OS (which gives you a lot of the functions of the MPC 3000 including making stereo samples, longer sampling time and the ability to use the slider to change tuning, attack, etc on the fly).

The MPC looks clean and would be mint if not for some small scratches on the main panel (under pads and next to Play Start button, see photos for details.) Everything functions on this MPC except the “9” key on the numeric pad. This is not really an issue as you can just use the rotary knob to change any number. ” Link

“What a great piece of gear. If you haven’t experienced the joy of working on an MPC60, grab this and take a turn. I took mine, loved every minute of it. But, I feel like my studio is getting a bit excessive, so passing this on to someone who can really put it to work.

Everything works great. It’s got the Vimana OS, which is fantastic. I’m not familiar with any other OS else as that’s what I got it with, but my understanding is that it’s like the linn OS and even perhaps a bit better. All I know is this thing has a great sound to it. Everything functions great. SCSI. Floppy disk works. Yeah, it’s got some age, hopefully the pictures give you a good honest look at it.” Link

“I have had this vintage piece of music equipment for some time now. Screen is nice and bright and zero flaws. When I received the mpc, I did not care for how it was painted. So I painted it but never got around to putting better labels on it. They are currently just printed on paper and taped down. It has been upgraded with version 3.1 and has expanded memory as well as the SCSI interface. Nothing is wrong with the unit I just don’t use it anymore and would like to move to the 3000.” Link

” We got this out of a storage unit. Not fully tested, but turns on and works. Will need maintenance. Comes with Zip drive, Zip drive power supply, 5 new Zip disks still in plastic cover, 6 sound floppy disks, and 1 zip driver floppy disk.

– 3 of the floppy disks loads. The 3 floppy disks with the blue tape doesn’t work.

– Will play sounds, and I programmed and played back a quick 2 bar loop.

*** The Play/Start button is very loose, and crooked.

*** The master volume is misaligned, and crackles a lot when turning.

*** The floppy drive does work, however there is a crack on the front and the plastic cover is missing from the eject tab. It will still eject the floppy disk, but you have to press down on the metal tab and grab the disk to take it out.

*** The sync and sampling functions have not been tested. None of the individual outs or the foot switch have been tested.

*** Zip drive turns on and reads disks, but did not test with formatting or saving to disk.

*** 3 of the plastic feet underneath are a little loose, but it doesn’t affect the balance of the MPC.”

Lot of 2 Akai MPC 60II units

Thursday Dec 14, 2017

“U.S. Bidders only please, Thank You!

This auction is for Two (2) MPC 60 IIs. They are both used. Both have had the screen foils replaced and were serviced within the last five years. Neither has been used much since then as the intent was to have them as back up and alternate machines.

MPC 60 II labeled in the pics as
(1) has the 2.10 OS.

MPC 60 II labeled in the pics as
(2) has the 3.10d OS as well and the SCSI card. The volume knob broke off while in storage. The knob itself will be included and shipped to the winner. The bottom of the stem that the volume knob is connected to is still intact and can potentially be turned with a flathead screwdriver… but probably should just be replaced.

I never used them much at all after having had them serviced and I cannot test them as I currently have no floppies. Cosmetically they have seen better days but are not in as bad shape as some we’ve seen.” Link

Akai MPC 60 with Expanded Memory, OS3.10, Internal Floppy Emulator

Sunday Nov 5, 2017

“Good condition MPC60 II here for sale. This has maxed out RAM and the 3.1 OS upgrade. The floppy drive has been replaced with a GoTek Floppy emulator that reads and writes to/from a USB drive. This is a vast upgrade from floppy technology that allows easy transport of samples and MPC data to and from your computer. Chop your samples in your DAW, slap em on a thumb drive and plug-and-play on your MPC.

The only thing to note here is the wear to the paint under the drum pads. Years of resting wrists on this part of the machine has worn some of the paint off.” Link
