Custom Akai MPC 2000 with 32MB RAM, 8-outs, EB-16, 8MB FlashROM, Internal Floppy Emulator

Friday Jul 6, 2018

“This unit was a centerpiece in my studio for long time. I had got it in fair condition and customized it all myself. Here’s what I did:
Installed the 8 outs board, the fx rom and the rare 8mb flash rom. Some of the pads were iffy so I added a brand new pad sensors sheet from mpcstuff and thick gray pads. The data knob is off an akai dps16 so it’s solid black not painted. The white buttons are mpcstuffs and the blue buttons are painted the same blue satin as the front panel piece. The top of the machine is just a vinyl skin rendition of R2D2 and the sides are painted semi gloss white. The screen is flawless and all the midi scsi connections work. Instead of the floppy drive I’ve installed a USB floppy emulator which can be tricky using the software on a newer computer to format or read each partition on a memory stick. Personally I kept an old laptop with Windows XP on it solely for that purpose. The only part of the machine I didn’t tackle is the note variation slider. It DOES NOT work but I will include the replacement part which O bought new. Power supply and 3 -128mb USB sticks already partitioned to 88 sections (88 floppies on one stick). ”
