Akai MPC 60 with Expanded Memory

Tuesday Jul 23, 2019

“It’s studio clear out time and here we have the holy grail of old school samplers – the AKAI MPC60 Mk1. I bought it in a fit of gear lust but it doesn’t get the use it deserves unfortunately.

It’s in great condition for its age with a few marks here and there as you can see on the pictures. It comes with the rare UK plug that is hard to get hold off.

The unit has the memory expansion fitted taking the sample time up to a healthy 26.2 seconds of pure 12 bit thump.

It also has the very latest os fitted, Vimana 3.15b to be specific which has a superior list of features over the last linn os. With the audio compression feature you can compress the samples in memory to half size thus giving you double the sample time so your 26.2 seconds becomes 52.4 seconds.

For a full OS feature list just google vimana 3.15b.

It had the backlight foil replaced a couple of years ago and it is still very bright for when you are working in low light conditions.

The disk drive was replaced with a reconditioned drive in 2018 used little since if at all.

The build quality of the first 2 linn mpc’s are really something to behold.. they feel solid and well made and this is the reason they have lasted the test of time unlike many of the newer cheap made plastic mpc’s which seem to just fall to bits from my experience.

The sound is special…. your drums will be sounding fat and punchy and you can always pitch samples into it similar to the sp12 /1200 if you want to add even more grit and extend your timing.”

” This auction is for a used Akai MPC60 II Roger Linn being sold As-is. Although it retains some main functionality, it has several issues with it including the following:
-floppy doesn’t work
-backlight on screen is out
– #5 button on the number pad sometimes you
have to press extra times, same thing with play/record/record-stop
buttons, most of the time those seemed to work fine, but sometimes you have to press them multiple times
– the pads can’t guarantee they work like a new mpc, same type of thing
responsiveness, some pads seem fine, one or two seem to double hit
sometimes, they respond about as expected when you hold them down at
different pressure, and they do respond when hitting at different
velocity but not like new,
– volume knob or headphone jack is scratchy idk which one but you hear static while adjusting,
– sampling loudness switch on the back you have to basically wiggle it
for the middle level so that the input comes in correctly, low and
high pretty sure were fine but the middle would still sound like it
was on low so you’d have to move it a little til it found its spot
– data control knob will sink in you have to pull it out and twist
at the same time for it to work
– generally physically its off white, got lots of dirt in various spots even a little rust on the
bottom by where the play/stop etc buttons are
– no issues that i know of with the outputs, used them several times but still no guarantees, as-is
– midi was fine,
– recording in, mapping sounds out by velocity and pitch, editing by
step and general sequencing functions worked fine as far I used it
– bottom left screw of the four on the front panel is missing”

“Selling my old MPC60, it’s been in use for years and with that comes signs of age:

 The paint is not as fresh so it has scratches, scuffs and very light rusting in a few spots.

 The SIDE SLIDES both are missing as this was being used in a Rack-mount setup.

 The LCD is visible but the backlight is slowly giving out, easily fixed for less than $60 on ebay as there are replacement backlights available.

 Some of the tact buttons need extra pressing for them to register but they all work nonetheless.

If someone wants to work on this and restore it, it will be easy to do for them:
Replace the tact switches
Replace Backlight
Find some side slides.

Overall the synth works very well, I have not had an issue working on it, all 16 pads work amazingly, the sampling, sync, all outputs, midi, disk drive and SCSI work as I use them everyday.”

“AKAI MPC60 Mk1 Perfect condition and a legendary piece with the ultimate sound. I have fitted it with a Nalbantov USB drive which is amazing for storing all the library but I also have the

original floppy drive if you want restore this back to the original system ever.

It has been fitted with the full capacity ram so you have the full 26.2 secs sampling time.

I purchased this from Germany last year and I have now finished the project I purchased it for, It’s a beautiful machine with the vintage legendary 12bit sound that has been used by so many greats in the industry.

It is priced fairly to reflect the upgrades such as the full RAM 26.2 secs and USB drive that holds up to 100 virtual floppy disks.”

“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

“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
