“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
