This unique and beautifully presented Akai MPC1000.
This model is truly one of a kind, boasting rare upgrades that are not included with the standard model. these upgrades include:
1. Blue backlit LCD screen: this screen makes the machine more appealing to the eye and looks far better than the dull green LCD that comes as standard, the blue LCD has also been known to be alot easier on the eyes than the green version, thus the user not suffering eye fatigue during long studio sessions. The blue LCD was purchased at http://www.needlewerk.com
2. Pad upgrade with new and rare black pad set: as this model was bought less than a year ago, it came pre-installed with the pad upgrade from akai. I then installed the black pad set for mostly aesthetic reasons but i honestly find them softer than the grey pads. (i will inlcude the old grey pad set for the buyers preference)
3. White skin from from styleflip.com: this is a very durable polyeurethane skin that has been placed over the original casing for added aesthetic quality, this makes the machine look stunning and very unique. The skin itself is of ery high quality, the best part is, is that it can be removed completley leaving absolutley no residue at all! see http://www.styleflip.com
4. Other customizations include: colour co-ordinated butons, q-link sliders, CF card slot and data wheel purchased from http://www.mpcstuff.com
Stunning white LED ligts under all appropriate buttons, these add to the white theme of the model and look fantastic in a modestly lit studio. (please note that the LEDs for buttons: PAD BANK A and D are not working, i remind the buyer that it is just the LED itself but the buttons work fine, it it quite easy to install new LEDs and the can be purchased from http://www.needlewerk.com)
5. An the most important upgrades of all....
This MPC1000 comes with full registered versions of the legendary operating systems " JJOS1 & JJOS2" both are fully registered with pass codes saving the buyer alot of headaches and some cash aswell.
The JJOS has become an absolute must have for all MPC1000 users, with regular updates still being added, these OS bring alot more features to the MPC1000. JJOS2 especially has tasken my music to the next level.
Other useful info:
I still have the original box with both the user manaul and the quickstart guide, i will also include the 128mb compact flash card that came with it, aswell as the usb cable.
I have put allot of my time and effort in to csutomizing this MPC, and i've spent alot of money aswell, i done this to improve the machine both aesthetically and physically and i can truly say that it has greatly enhanced my music making expierience. i can assure the buyer all parts have been installed to the highest expectations, and quality has not been comprimised in any way.
This model is less than a year old, in exquisite condition and used in a smoke free studio.
