There is a constant high pitch noise on the left input channel.

Sounds like you may have a defective unit. I would return it for exchange.

Check out your speaker settings in Sounds and Audio devices, in your control panel.

First you must configure your PC to read your mpc 100
flush card. Just insert the software CD driver of your mpc
100 flush card, if you have the CD. Otherwise, you must
have a download from the internet for the software driver.

Do i need studio monitors so i can hear the sounds coming out of my mpc 4k?

you need some type of speakers either monitors that connect 1/4 inch cables left and right or you can use some speakers that hook up in the headphone jack but you are going to need an adapter to make the 1/8 inch to a 1/4

When I run my Akai MPC 1000 into my Edirol FA-66 get a loud hum through my monitors that does not pick up in the recording. I've tried switching around which power points that my MacBook, monitors and MPC...

its probably a ground loop (i think thats what it's called)
sometimes if a number of sound devices like monitors/computer/soundcard are connected
with the same ground, this problem occurs.

so maybe try use a ground-less electricity wire on the mpc, or the laptop. or both.
good luck.

Installing a 120GB HD kit into my mpc 1000 or RAM

well a hard drive is a logical drive in which windows and all the things you download are stored until the user deletes them, and the pc133 memory is a temporary storage in where when you open something on your desktop in windows it is then stored into your pc-133 memory so you can view it, the more of this you have the faster it will open items on the hard drive, they both pretty much accentuate each other, the more ram you have the faster your hard disk access will be

When youre in LOAD or DISK mode, does the mpc allow you to scroll through the cd? In what format are the samples. If the sample doesnt load, it wont play, but when selected, it should allow you to preview the sound. The 4000 allows users to import/load SND and WAV files.

The MPC4K should allow you to sample right out the box, but make sure you have the latest OS.

try the 4k FAQ..

It's also covered in the manual with you can download for free @

I know, who wants to hit a manual when you want to bang out....I'm a classic 2K owner, trust me I know, but sometimes the 5 minutes in checking the methods, saves you downtime, and gets you into funk mode quicker..

The 4k is also the first Mpc to come with onboard sounds, so check a preset, then check your cd, and if youre getting audio from the preset, then you know it's not the sound generator / synthesis chip. If you have a computer, try itunes or sound converter to switch the sound format, or look for a really nice low end application called CDXtract.

If youre banging out on halloween, youre my kinda MPC user.

Keep me posted.
