Akai MPC 3000 with 32MB RAM

” Akai MPC3000 Vintage Sampler- Led Display, Vailixi OS, 32mb RAM, SD Card reader.
Akai MPC in good working order .Two issues with this MPC.One is the backlight doesn’t work the second, the left stereo channel (record in) doesn’t work so recording/sampling could be done in mono.If you wanted to fix this issues I will give you the details of the person who is fixing MPC’s his name is Jazzcat.There is a way around this(thats what I do if I want my samples to be in stereo)I am loading the samples in to the MPC via CF card reader (which is included with working CF cards).The card reader is NOT HOT SWAP meaning you can’t remove the card when the reader is on!!!.What you need to do is put the ch car in to the reader turn on the reader than turn on the MPC and opposite when you want to turn off ,you turn off the MPC first then the reader and than you can remove the cf card!
Apart from that there was a lot of improvement done o this MPC software is updated to the lates OS new buttons and buttons tacts along with a lot of transistors and capacitor were changed for new which improved the overall sound of this grate machine!The price on the ebay for this model is over 3000£ So I am selling way cheaper because of this two issues which can be fixed for probably a 100£ if you will send this to Jazzcat to repair but Still can work on it the way it is as I described above.So happy bidding.Ask me if you have any questions.All the best!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Custom Akai MPC 3000 with 32MB RAM, Internal Card Reader

“I bought this from a pawn shop in LA. about 15 years ago and looked it up on the internet because of it’s customization and name attached.The picture of this particular MPC was on the Forat website as one of it’s customized models.I replaced the backlight 10 years ago but it is dim again and I purchased an led screen(which still needs to be installed) which I will include in this auction. I installed a compactflash card reader with a 1 gb card and Vailixi 3.50 OS.It could use some new buttons because they are quite worn…MPCstuff has everything you need for MPCs.The connection to the flash drive is intermittent sometimes and the ribbon cable contacts probably need to be cleaned.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai MPC 3000 with 32MB RAM, Internal Card Reader

“MPC 3000 with a compact flash card reader and Mansell-Labs Vailixi EPROMs installed. When I picked this up about 10 years ago I did a fair bit of work on it to get in back in good shape. The backlight, pad-sensors, pads, data encoder and all the under button tact switches were replaced. Gave it a thorough clean up inside, and also installed the internal compact flash card reader via SCSI, maxed out RAM and Vailixi EPROMs. It has only seen light use since then in a non-smoking studio. For the last 5-6 years it has been packed away carefully in a box as I have been living abroad. I have fired it up to test it before listing it here and it all works great.

The one thing to note, that I didn’t replace when refurbishing this, is the plastic data wheel. This part is readily available online for about £15 should you want to replace it. It works fine as it is though. The inside latching of it that attaches to the encoder is a little worn, so currently has a little adhesive putty wedged inside it to keep it tight and working like a brand new one would. This is a very small thing but want to provide you with a transparent description of this to avoid any disappointment. Like I said, it works as it should do as is. It’s cheap fix for anyone who feels the need to replace it anyway. It just slides on top, there would be no need to even open up the MPC to replace this part.

I have a box of spares from when this was refurbished that I’ll include with it. It contains various spare buttons and the original flopping drive that was removed to make room for the compact flash card reader – see pictures.

A dust cover and the original manual are also supplied.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
