Akai MPC 60

Wednesday Apr 17, 2019

“The MPC works great, has some cosmetic issues but still a beauty for a 1990s unit, needs a good inside cleaning, some buttons have to be pushed harder, pads are responsive.”

“Non working Akai MPC 60. I had plans to repair or get it repaired, but it’s time to let it go. What you see is what you get (not including the old apple laptop that’s under some of the parts.)

Due to the listing as “non working”, there will be no returns on this item.” Click here to visit listing on eBay


Akai MPC 60II with OS3.10e

Tuesday Apr 9, 2019

“Akai MPC 60ii(Software Version 3.10e) Also Includes (4) – Vimana v3.15 ROM chips

Some of the buttons you have to press slightly harder than the others, but some contact cleaner would fix that. All the buttons work, so I didn’t bother.

The back right corner has a dent. This was done by the previous owner.

There is also a crack near one of the vents in the back. This was done by the previous owner.

Small scratches on the outer case.

Some paint is chipping off the scroll wheel.

Some oxidation on the bottom left top plate nut.
Comes with OS disk and power cable”

Akai MPC 60

Sunday Mar 17, 2019

“Up for auction is a vintage Akai MPC-60 integrated MIDI sampler/sequencer/drum machine. This is a 220/240 volt unit. Very rare to find one so clean these days, and if you’re willing to fix the minor issues listed below, you can have one of the cleanest MPC-60’s out there.

What works:

1) It powers up when connected to a 220volt step up transformer.
2) It loads samples from floppy disc.
3) It samples and then plays samples and sequences.
4) There is no strange hum or buzzing coming from the unit (it’s quiet).
5) LCD screen works, and contrast adjustment knob works.
6) The buttons all have their lettering, which is amazing for such an old unit.
7) All switches/sliders/pots currently work as they should, prior to shipping.

The issues:

1) The backlight appears to be dim or not working at all. I suspect it will need to be replaced, or there is an issue with the inverter that powers the backlight.
2) When playing samples, you can hear digital noise coming out the outputs. I suspect a grounding issue.
3) This is a 220/240 volt unit. I bought it off a producer who moved to the USA from France. He claimed it was the first MPC-60 in Europe. As such, it requires a step up transformer to operate it. This can be purchased for fairly cheap on eBay (around $10).
4) It is currently running OS 2.02. You can upgrade to Vimani (chips are available on eBay).
5) It only has the stock memory (available on eBay).
6) When these get shipped, buttons can be intermittent due to dust moving around inside during shipping, so basic servicing of switch contacts should be expected.
7) It does not have SCSI, but kits are available online.

Has been upgraded as follows:

1) Original pleather wristrest removed because it had some small marks on it (this cover is included in the auction in case you want to revert to stock). Has been replaced with a real leather wristrest to match the original color. Smells like leather, and much more comfortable!
2) “Corx” spacers added under rubber pads for instantaneous response, with very accurate velocity response.
3) Cleaned and detailed.
4) Power cable was removed at some point, and an IEC connector added to the back of the unit.

Condition is very clean, I’d say near mint. There are a couple minor marks on the unit here and there. See photos for details.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Sunday Feb 24, 2019

“Akai released the MPC60 II in 1991 with largely the same features as the original with some differences such as the LCD display was no longer moveable and was set at a fixed angle however there was a contrast adjustment setting.

No SCSI upgrade and no extra ram. Both are quite cheap though.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“AKAI MPC 60 max memory and SCSI card added. Condition is Used. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail.
Was working fine about 18 months ago. Now it loads up no problem but when you start editing samples it goes into a perpetual loop?
Have to power cycle to unlock? No idea of issue could be dirty contacts no idea.”

“I’ve had the MPC60 for little less than 2 years. Goes without saying that this is the MK1, the Original Roger Linn metal finish first edition. Selling it because looking to free up funds for other studio equipment.

The sampler has a new screen, updated OS to 3.15 and SCSI board. By installing the new OS, the recording time upgraded from 13 to 26 seconds. The side panels are also included.

As a standard, it comes with 8 outputs plus additional 2 mono outputs. Rec Input with 4x MIDI In/Out. It has inputs for pedals, also. Besides the fact that is missing the slider knob the Sampler is sturdier than ever. Since of its age, some of the buttons have faded color. I also have the original MPC60 retail box with pictures of the MPC on it. The box is so rare you can’t even find a picture of it online.

The power cable comes factory attached to the MPC 60 and I will include the 100mb Zip Drive with the already formatted disk and the power & SCSI cable for the Zip Drive.

What is included :
– 1x MPC 60 MK1
– 1x Power Cable (Factory Attached)
– 2x Side Panels
– 1x V3.15 Upgrade Viamana (Already Upgraded)
– 1x Screen Replacement (Already Upgraded)
– 1x SCSI Board Inside the MPC60 (Already Upgraded)
– 1x Zip Drive (100mb) w/ Power & SCSI Cable
– 1x Formatted 100mb Zip Disk & 1x 100mb Zip Disk in New Condition
– 1x MPC60 Original Retail Box”

” This is the Akai MPC 60ii designed by Roger Linn (Linn Drum). Since it’s release in 1991 it has become a staple of the hip hop and R&B music scenes. A stand-alone studio with both sampling and sequencing capabilities, you have everything you need to start building banging tracks!

– There are minor scratches due to age.
– In perfect working condition.
– NOTE: This vintage machine uses floppy disks.
– FloppyDisk.com is a great floppy disk source.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai MPC 60 with OS3.10e, SCSI

Monday Dec 17, 2018

“Compared to all other Akai MPC 60’s you will find on Ebay, this unit is in impeccable condition. Apart from slight wear around the central knob, this unit has been maintained in a smoke free and virtually dust free environment, and shows almost no sign of cosmetic wear. The main screen LED is bright, crisp, and clear, and all small LEDs are functioning as expected. I clean this unit frequently and have used it consistently with no issues for the past four years. This MPC has been upgraded to the most recent software v 3.10 and is SCSI (Zip) Compatible.

I am moving overseas next year and cannot afford to bring this with me, but would really like to find it a good home where it will be put to good use. If you would like more specific photos of any part of the unit I am more than willing to send them upon request. I can also send a short video of the unit playing a sample if needed to prove the quality of this MPC.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Fully functioning akai mpc 60ii in good condition! No scsi but everything including floppy drive works!! Comes with a floppy with a few sounds to test right away:). There is a few missing screws, scsi plate(that covers the area where scsi goes) and light writing and I mean very light writhing in bottom. No slider knob but it still functions! Nothing major at all!! Unit looks great for its age and works flawlessly which is pretty rare for a unit at this age:). What you see is what you get! Fully tested and recorded for our protection. This is 1 of only 2 classic roger linn models that have an amazing sound like no other models made after him with akai!! 12-bit crunch and very lofi with samples!! ” Click here to visit listing on eBay
