"Internal 100 MB Zip Drive Modification for the MPC 3000, 2000, 60 & 60 II"

Since 1993, we've installed  thousands of removable drives into samplers and drum machines as 

we are the ones who came up with the whole concept. Starting with our Forat F16 samplers, we were 

the first manufacturer  to include this in our production units, long before EMU, Roland & others!  

Our Zip modification does not disable  your external SCSI connection, so you can still connect your 

external drive to the back of the unit and select between internal or external operation.
