Akai MPC 2000XL with 32MB RAM, 8-outs, Internal Card Reader

Monday Jun 10, 2019

” Up for auction is a classic AKAI MPC 2000XL in excellent working and cosmetic condition. The only small issue is that the “play” button is slightly wiggly but that does not affect performance in any way. Slightly loose buttons are common on these older machines. This super-duper party machine comes loaded with the 8 out expansion board, brand new
bright blue LCD screen, compact card reader installed, and best of all, a custom made “start/stop” switch so you can trigger a song or pattern to play from a remote location. I had this complex midi switch specially made (by MOLTEN VOLTAGE in Portland, OR) so that I could remotely trigger the MPC as a simple backing drum machine during my live organ sets, but then I chickened out on pulling this out of the studio and into stinky, smokey bars. This has been in a clean, air-conditioned room for it’s entire life. The deluxe 2000XL was made for the studio. Just listen to any CASH MONEY single from the 90s and you are hearing this sound. This particular MPC is featured on a bunch of Louisiana Swamp-Tech studio albums, including Quintron’s “Spellcaster II – Death In Space” and CHILL – “Take it From the Blind Side”.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
