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

Akai MPC 60II with Internal Floppy Emulator

“AKAI MPC60II 12 BIT DRUM SAMPLER Expanded SD Floppy Emulator Manual V3.10 (7/97).

Serial # 99125-00127

I bought this from a Reverb seller 4 months ago. It had a service by the last owner I was told.

I used it record a few dozen instrumental tracks. Very easy to use if you are familiar with older MPCs. It does require to slow the hell down and be patient.

All functions/pads/knobs/buttons work. However, please be aware that it is a 25+ year old drum machine.

Auction includes:

2 power cables(one long, one short)

Printout of software manual

Original memory/OS chips

Updated memory/OS chips(in unit)

Memory is 2MB

SD card is 16GB

Notes:

The floppy emulator partitions SD card into sections the size of a floppy. This means that loading can require patience if you have not been organized in how you labelled and grouped sample sets.

Great sounding machine. Plenty of period warmth and crunch.

3 gain stage switches mean you can really slam samples when you make them.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
