Akai MPC 3000

“For sale is my Akai MPC3000 Music Production Centre. I bought it about 18 months ago with the intention that my son would have it, but he’s lost interest in music now so it’s just lying around.

I’d call this one a working fixer upper. It works and has a new bright screen from Jazzcat, so you can definitely start producing music with it.

It will need a new tact switch for the Edit Loop button, as that requires a firm press to get it to work; I haven’t had issues with any of the other buttons.

I’d also recommend replacing the pads and pad sensors (easily obtainable). They all work, as I said you can definitely produce music with this MPC, but I think they’re original.

The only other issue I’m aware of is one of the screen hinges is broken. The screen still raises and folds down again (as shown in the pictures), but one side of the screen isn’t secured.

The floppy disk drive works and I’ll supply it with a box of HD disks.

It hasn’t had its memory expanded so it’s got the standard RAM.

OS is 3.10

Like I said, it’s a working fixer upper and is priced accordingly.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai MPC 1000

“I am selling my amazing Akai MPC1000 sampler/sequencer – a modern classic icon, used by the likes of Kanye West, DJ Shadow, Bonobo, Autechre and many, many more*… but if you’re looking then you probably already know that.

Trust me, this will change your musical game!

(*even little indie-electro bands from south London!)

The unit comes with a power cable (not pictured) and the original 128MB Flash Card containing the MPC Sound Library (over 100 drum samples and other sounds).

The Flash Card connects to your computer (I use a USB card reader) so you can add your own samples and sounds to the card, and very easily upload them to the MPC’s memory.

The unit is in perfect working order, with one or two very small imperfections to the casing, and one of its rubber feet missing, but this is easily replaced.

There is also some velcro on the bottom from where I used to attach it to a keyboard stand. I have left this on in case you want to do the same, as it’s a good idea to secure the unit to a stand if you’re using it live. I’ll include some new reverse velcro pieces in case you want to do this.

This is an amazing piece of musical equipment and I’m sad to be parting with it. It’s super powerful but super fun, with some serious capabilities under the hood.”
