Akai MPC 60

” AKAI MPC 60 MK1 SAMPLER – ORIGINAL – RARE – WORKS GREAT 

This MPC 60 model 1 is mostly original. It is the very first model of MPCs ever released!

Recently upgraded the pads and sensors. She deserves someone who will take care of her and use her properly! It probably needs a new LCD. Other than that, I think it is best to use original workflow of floppies with it honestly. I am throwing in a usb floppy disk drive and a box of new floppies for you. 

Not only is this an absolute rare classic beast of a machine, but it sounds absolutely amazing and will make your tracks shine!”

Akai MPC 60

“Classic MPC60 sampler. Running version 2.12.

This one has seen some action in its life, but is generally in good condition.

There is cosmetic wear to the unit. I’ve tried to picture the most prevalent markings – the two bottom front corners have the worst of the wear – I suspect it may have rubbed on a flightcase at some point. There are also two marks on the screen casing to the left, but these don’t especially interfere with the display. The buttons have yellowed over time.

I’ve tried to use all buttons in a test, and all are responsive. The pads seem responsive also, as do the two main potentiometers and contrast control. I should mention the pads have a slight smell of smoke. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Custom Akai MPC 60II with SCSI

“I purchased a custom painted AKAI MPC60 II overseas and kept it as a collectible.
It has a modern, austere and cool finish.

It is a one-of-a-kind item. Vintage sampler par excellence! This is a rare and hard to find full spec.
The retro feel is irresistible.
A classic machine that created the golden era of hip-hop in the 90’s!
This is a very good condition machine considering the time it was released.
12bit sound! The fat and powerful sound that only this can produce.
The sequence of the sounds has a unique groove that cannot be imitated by DAWs.
It has been maintained, so you can use it with peace of mind.

I think it is a beautiful product in good condition considering the age of the product.

All switches have been replaced, so the operation is very good.
The LCD screen has been replaced, so visibility is very good.
CF drive for easy data management.
New PAD sensor!
SCSI equipped, can be connected to an external drive.

The unit has been maintained and cleaned prior to sale.
The buttons, pad, and slider are in good condition with no defects.

Slight marking / wear across some areas of the edges – see pictures of the rear and just above the CF drive
