” Here is my AKAI CD3000XL Stereo Digital Sampler, I bought it a while back and never really got to using it. Its upgraded to 32mb and has the manual and a few disks. Its all working, and the screen can still be seen although the contrast is turned right up. All in all its in very good condition, no fading on the front a very little in the way of rack rash. It still has its original box, but its slightly battered. I will ensure its safely packed before shipping.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“Akai Samplers For Parts or Needs Repair – Set of 4 – S1000 CD3000 CD3000XL
S1000 – nothing lights on display or buttons so the unit appears dead, but you can hear something running internally when its plugged in and turned on. Cursor knob is missing and the Data knob is crooked.
CD-3000 – completely dead and Data knob is loose in the unit.
CD-3000XL – CD Drawer is jammed. The display is dead and none of the buttons work.
CD-3000 – is the most functional of the 4 units but the Data and Main Volume knob are loose and floating inside the unit. All units show heavy cosmetic wear too.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
“Akai CD3000 XL rack mount sampler with 8 outs, GoTek USB drive, power cable & original manual.
This unit is an absolute powerhouse of a sampler with truly outstanding features and audio quality. The GoTek drive brings it into a whole new level of usability – no more floppy drive issues! – and I’ve been pairing it with a Launchpad Pro Mk 3 as basically an MPC on steroids! Only selling due to the size of the beast.”

“I am considering selling my Akai CD3000XL sampler. I bought this many years ago and used it a few times. However, it has not been used now for a number of years. Although I am tempted to keep it, it seems a shame to have it sitting unused if someone can make use of it.
The sampler has the full 16 MWords of memory and uses OS 1.52 as shown in the photos.
When it was last used, it was working fine. However, I am unable to test this sampler properly now as I no longer have any discs to use with it except for 1 floppy disc.
This means the CD ROM drive has not been tested. It opens and closes and did work when last used but I cannot guarantee it still works as I don’t have any Akai CD ROMs to test it with.
I tried to format a floppy disc and the drive did format it so it seems to be working correctly as shown in one of the photos.
I tried sampling a sound and this all seemed fine and the sound saved to disc.
The backlight of the screen is out so will need replaced. The writing on the screen itself still looks fine but it is fairly hard to read without the backlight. The sampler is in decent condition with some marks as shown in the photos.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
