“This is an ex-rental unit in good condition. It has been tested and declared to be fully functioning. I checked its’ history and it was rented onto several sessions in various major New York City recording studios for Jay Z, Talib Kweli, Petey Pablo, Kool G Rap, Mobb Deep, Mos Def, Mop, Biggie, Corey Guns, Camron and Jermaine Dupris.” Link
” For auction is my vintage Akai / Roger Linn MPC 60 MKII sampling drum machine and sequencer. MPC is in excellent condition in and out….display is good and all pads, buttons, pots and input/outputs work. I have installed a RaizinMonster SCSI connector for added flexibility. It has the standard RAM installed for 13.1 seconds of sampling but can be upgraded to 26.2 seconds inexpensively. Comes with the full manual in a binder, power cable and 10 Midimark sound discs for this machine.
Great 12 bit sound and intuitive programming. Would love to keep this machine but have too much gear and need to downsize due to an overseas move.” Link
“I have an AKAI MPC 60ii MIDI PRODUCTION CENTER Drum Sampler with a whole box of floppy discs included. I powered it up and you can see that it works. In pic 2 you can see the button for the slider for “HIHAT DECAY” is missing but you can still slide it. The floppy drive works, as it registered on the screen. Most of the buttons seem to push and work. I plugged in a set of headphones and all the drum pads seem to work but the “Crash 2″ pad. It pushed but I couldn’t hear it. Maybe because of the really old headphones I was using? I can’t speak to specific operations of this unit as I have only played around with it and am not real familiar with it. Anyway this has been sitting on a shelf for a long time and it’s time to go to someone who can use it. Sold as-is. No returns or refunds.” Link
“Akai MPC60 II for sale.
It’s maxed out in Ram and has the latest 3.10 OS. All official not bootlegs.
It was fitted with the SCSI addon board from Marion Systems / Roger Linn and is fitted with an internal CF card reader (Card Included).
You can still use the back panel SCSI port and use a ZIP drive (you have to change the port number to access it from the disk menu).
The cosmetic condition is very good, all the metal scratches on the metallic panel there prior to my purchase (6 years ago). It has been used in a smoke and pet free environment.
Probably the best hardware sequencer and 12bit sampler all in one. The gold standard legendary piece of gear for any Hiphop and House music producer. Raw, gritty and tightttt.
This is a 120V unit purchased from the USA. I have a step down transformer that I will include.
The screen is good and actually very bright but if you want to give the ultimate touch of jazz you could fit an OLED screen (wasn’t available at the time when I was pimping it).
All the different upgrades bump up the price and buy purchasing this unit you will be saving on hassle installing it all and troubleshooting. Some addons are actually discontinued, I wont break all the costs down as you’ll probably try to check it all yourself and make up your mind… In short : no cheap!
This unit is built like a tank and ready to spit out some ill beats, as they say.
Offers welcome. The asking price might seem high but it only reflects the multiple add ons costs. This item wont loose value.” Link

Some physical scuffs and scrapes but fully functional and maxed out.
Has the following upgrades
Max ram (1.5mb, 26seconds)
New LCD Screen
New fat pads from MPCStuff.com
HxC Floppy Emulator w/SD Card” Link
This is a legendary piece of equipment! The MPC 60ii has been a vital part of music history, especially Hip-Hop. It’s known for it”s 12 bit sound which definitely shines on drums!
This unit has been upgraded to support the Vimana OS, (3.15 B5), and the floppy drive has been replaced with a Gotek USB Emulator. Also, I’ll include the Floppy drive that was replaced by the USB Emulator.
Cosmetically it’s in good shape. For some reason, there’s glue residue on the top of the unit from someone who decided to glue mini-baseball helmets to the unit.
I love this thing but I don’t have the time for it. I made a few beats. Unit works perfectly. ” Link

This unit has a new “Backlight, and it also has the upgraded OS, (3.15 B5), and the floppy drive has been replaced with a Gotek USB Emulator, (SFRM72-FU-DL). The memory hasn’t been upgraded but it’s not that hard to do so yourself.
I love this thing but I’m moving a few pieces of gear to make room for new gear and unfortunately this has to go. Cosmetically it’s in very good shape, especially considering the age of the unit. Also, I’ll include the Floppy drive that was replaced by the USB Emulator.” Link
“My beloved MPC 60 II is up for grabs. I am the second owner and it’s lived in a smoke free home studio for the past 10 years. 100% functional, updated 3.1 software with book(!), and maxed memory (see pic, 26.2 secs).
Original floppy that works fine. No SCSI.
Remember you need DD floppies for this machine, not HD. I will include a few to get you started. They are easily available on ebay. HD disks will mess up the drive or eventually fail. ” Link

” I used this MPC produce in Atlanta in the 90’s (you know what I’m talking about).
Just drug it out of the closet, dusted off and it ran like a champ…I will include disks shown with samples. Need cash for TV…hate to part but I’m not using it.” Link
“If you are looking at this listing you should know all about what these machines can do! If you don’t do your research please! I bought them with all intentions of using/ savings them for that day but I have decided to stick with my mpc 4000… for what I do.. both mpc’s are maxed on memory & scsi ports all functions are working wanted to put cf readers in them but the wait for them is still a wait lol.. I did order floppy insulator for the 60..it will be included they both can use back lights very dim in the dark! just never rushed to change them ..also have some extra items like scsi 100zip drive & cd-drive for the mpc 3000 they come as a combo! I have used them & to the best of my knowledge every thing is working ..they are used but they look great for the age they will be pack separate 3000 has hard metal case.. 60 will be in box..” Link
I hate to part with it, but I need to pay my house payment.
No returns sold as is.
BTW, I package well. So you can be assured no matter how many times those morons at the shipping company throw and drop the package. It will arrive safe and sound. Buying from me will not be that one experience, were you shuck out some hard earned cash and when your new toy arrives and your all geeked up ready to play. You find out the dumb ass that sold it to you, doesn’t know how to use bubble wrap. ”
“Pristine condition. Brand New Bright LCD. Fully expanded with original expansion. SCSI kit installed. This one is immaculate. ” Link
About: This is a full sampler setup looking for an experienced or new producer to rock! I have owned and produced on this machine for 3 years and had fun using it, I installed the max upgrades personally and worked its program from 2.1 to 3.10e however I am streamlining my studio equipment to new devices. That being said this machine is holding a new internal zip which I personally installed less than a year ago, has full internal sample memory upgrade (26.2 seconds, a zip holding 5+ program folders), 8 outputs, functioning LED, and the updated 3.10e program making its system equivalent to the MPC 3000. I will throw in a zip with 4 separate drum kits which I sampled from records, this way you can begin experimenting and making beats as soon as you get the machine.

The Appeal: the 60 MKii following the original MPC 60 came out in 1988 and quickly became a staple in Hip-Hop production, being made famous by many producers including DJ Premier and DJ Shadow. Its 12 bit sampler creates a warm and gritty sound output making it a mimicked and sought after piece of equipment in sample based production.
Cosmetic/Internal: This machine is in great condition, and was used in a smoke free home studio. Being OG the machine moves slower in the process of chopping sounds, saving programs, preparing zips, loading beats, etc. but thats purely the nature of the beast. The only hiccup I have found is in creating stereo sounds the final sound occasionally becomes jumbled in the process, but if the sounds are saved they can be reloaded and fixed.
Extra Functions: Sequence sound recording for programing full songs, has note cut off, and sound decay, attack, velocity, and tuning manipulation controlled by the 16 pads or slider. It carries a 4 pad bank selection and the “note correction” key gives the machine swing quantizers that fix out of place hits in the beat and help build up syncopated rhythms. MIDI controller possibilities by connecting to other samplers or sound sources.” Link
-Excellent condition (just a few very light scratches and wear)
-Works perfectly, no functional issues
-Disks, manual and power cord included
Amazing top of the line sequencer with tons of sounds and features. Used in studios and stages all over the world and highly sought after. Sounds amazing!” Link
“Great Vintage MPC 12 Bit system with 3.15 operating system with amazing sound quality. It has a few scratches but overall in great shape. recently sent to Forat for services. Included is planet phat sound module” Link
I’ve owned this MPC since 2013 – great sound and sequencing abilities! Only differences between 60 mark1 and this one (mark2) is the outer case aesthetic and the mark2 includes a headphone jack. I have used this MPC to sample sounds and to program and control 4 different other machines (synths, samplers, drum machines) using the midi outputs. Only did a few shows with it. It seems like the encoder knobs were replaced some time ago. I had several of the tact switches changed for new ones when I first purchased it. Also, I replaced the backlight in the last 6 months with one of the better one ($35 value!) – saintbasil I think is the seller.
All 16 pads with velocity work great! Knobs and sliders work great! All inputs and outputs work great. Sampler sounds great! Case has some scratches and stickers (see photos).
This is really an instrument for someone who is handy with a soldering iron as you can keep it fresh indefinitely. Right now a couple of the tact switches don’t work-actually they were not functioning when I first got it. I’ve been able to use it just fine exactly as it is though. The two buttons that are non-functioning are the “record button” and “left arrow button”… which fortunately don’t prevent you from using the machine. (Overdub functions as record and you can use the other arrow buttons and encoder knob to get around the screens). I have a bunch of tact switches that will be included, I have just always been nervous about soldering in the machine and didn’t since I could make music no problem.” Link
