excellent condition. pads work wonderfully and feel great with the upgrades.

upgrades installed:
mpcstuff pad fix upgrade
black metal front panel and black knobs, jog wheel, memory slot, buttons, etc.
knurled volume & record knobs
polished walnut side panels
XLCD screen (white)
right side pcb with upgraded jog wheel encoder
256mb ram upgrade
JJOS 128XL (128SP currently installed)

notes:

the right side wood panel is ever so slightly loose. you won’t notice it unless you’re holding it by the sides.

the custom knurled vol/rec knobs have to be set at just the right height to not rub. i adjusted them and they are smooth.

after replacing the right side pcb i noticed that the “16 levels” button doesn’t have quite as much travel as the others. it still makes a “click” when you press it and is totally functional. just feels a little different. i’m guessing the button cap needs to be shifted slightly, but i didn’t want to open it back up as it works fine.

the compact flash card slot has a bit of friction when you try to eject the card. it still comes out, but it takes a sec.

i cut a small sheet of corrective orange lighting gel and put it on the XLCD because it is very bright! it’s non-permanent and easy to remove.”
