introduces the MPC1000XLCD Large Screen Kit For Akai MPC 1000 (say that 3 times really fast… fun huh?) is available for pre-order and will be shipping soon.

The MPC1000XLCD Large ( 240 x 128 ) LCD screen doubles the screen size of the MPC1000. The XLCD screen utilizes the mounting points of the original factory LCD. This new LCD screen comes mounted in the plastic holder surround and easily drops in the place of the old one. With a simple install of the included operating system update, you upgrade to a much larger LCD screen. The LCD screen is available in two colors (White and Blue), which can also be inverted (see pictures) using a function in the JJ OS128 operating system included for free. The operating system allows this larger LCD screen to utilize the full capabilities of the MPC1000 with a larger overall LCD screen footprint.


The LCD screen upgrade kit includes the following:

  • Install CD Rom (or optional CF card for $25.00 extra) – Includes FREE JJ Operating System, Install Instructions PDF, and XLCD Sample Pack – LCD Screen with complete snap in housing, and plug and play design wire harness with break-away connector for easy install and uninstall.
  • The LCD screen is very easily installed as you can see from our instructional video linked below. Typical install takes about 10-15 minutes and only requires a Phillips screwdriver and flat head screwdriver. (Please note: MPCstuff is not responsible for any issues that may arise when you are installing screen).

NOTE: These screens DO NOT need an external contrast POT like you may have seen in the early release of the screens and in the install video.


OS128 is installable by the same method as free JJ OS. The function and specification are the same as the free version of JJ OS. To learn more about the operating system, click here.
