    All items in great condition - used in non-smoking home studio predominantly (some gigging).

    Reason for selling...my wife is making me :D

    Make me an offer (but remember anything less is taking food out of my child's mouth!!! ;))

    I forgot that there's expansion cards in the XP-50

    Vintage Synth SR-JV1080-04
    255 waveforms and 255 patches.

    Hip Hop SR-JV1080-12
    256 patches and 8 full rhythm sets (including loops)

    Techno SR-JV1080-11
    Waveforms: 255
    Patches: more than 200
    Rhythm Sets: 8


    These expansion boards retailed for about $250 a pop back in the day.

    So, the XP-50's new asking price is:

    $1625 including all 3 expanions, a sustain pedal, and an x-stand.

    Cheers

    Who buys aan Akai CD3000i when you could buy a FULLY loaded S5000


    ;)

    mine is not for sale at this present time... only when Deep Six's Sampler is sold...

    HAHA thanks Wes, you bum!

    But he's correct...if you are looking for a budget deal and have a computer with SCSI, then the CD3000i is a great deal.

    If you're looking for something more, PM Wes...he *STILL* hasn't gotten rid of his S5000 it seems :D
