Akai S2800i

“Unit works but I have lost my floppy disk of samples. The floppy drive does try to read any other disks I have. I honestly cannot remember how to format disks etc.
All buttons light up and seem to work well. I used to use this machine with my Atari ST.

I’ve owned this machine for 15 years, but I’ve only used it a handful of times. It really is in good condition though as the previous owner hardly used it either. Both from home studio setups.

The display is very dim, but it does work – plug and play displays are about £25 on ebay. Would probably need to be replaced unless you’ve got good lighting.

Original box is tatty but I will include it to keep things original. I will rebox the box within a box for postage.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai MPC 1000

“Pretty well worn as you can see from the pictures – some of the buttons need a pretty firm push. 2 Pads on the bottom row are not as sensitive as each other either.
It certainly could not be described as ‘mint’, but I’ve made many tracks with it. It came to me in this condition. The multiple outs work well and it’s for analogue synths which is what I’ve used it for.

Realistically it needs service and some TLC to bring it back to its’ best and is thus going cheap. I have used the CF to load samples in from the card reader which works, but I have not connected it by USB and cannot be sure if that works.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai MPC 2000

“The machine powers on, as well as the screen.

When there is no disk inserted, the machine says “Insert Disk MPC2000 Disk!”. I only have one floppy disk to test, but the machine shows an error message when I insert the disk. It says “Disk Read Error!”.

The machine could possibly still be functioning properly, but you might just need the correct floppy disk. Or perhaps there is a hardrive issue. I’m not too sure and I do not have much experience with this machine. That’s why I am selling it for parts because I am not confident if it will work or not.

Please understand what you are buying as I will not offer returns. This machine is specifically advertised as for parts only, and am unsure of its current function state. ”

One scratch in the front top right corner of the machine (see photo(s)). Also the right side panel can come off if you give it a yank. It is on fairly tight though. Never bothered me. I am just selling this item because I could use the money right now.”

The front panel is clean and free of damage to the pins for the memory slot. The 3rd assignable output has a 1/4″ post stuck broken off inside.

Akai MPC 1000

“Great condition Akai MPC 1000. Owned from brand new, bedroom studio use lightly for about a year and then kept in orignal box ever since, unused.

Expanded memory from the original 16mb to 128mb allowing an increase in sampling time from 136 sec to now a whopping 24 mins 28 sec.

Perfect working order and tested before sale. Brought back some memories of hours spent jamming away on this beast.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
