Question about Akai Mpc1000 Music Production Center
MPC keeps making a loud static noise WAY louder than what's being worked on. It sounds like white noise from a TV. Any ideas to what could be wrong?
Maybe try adjusting the MASTER level?
Adjusting the master level You can adjust the level of the headphone and the stereo out by turning the MAIN VOLUME knob. The MAIN
VOLUME changes the analog signal level. This will also adjust the entire level of the MPC1000 digitally.
01. Press the [MODE] key and then the [PAD 10] (OTHER).
It switches to the OTHER mode.
02. Press the [F1] (GLOBAL) key.
The GLOBAL page will be displayed.
03. In the Master level field, set the level.
You will set the digital signal level, which will be sent out to the DA converter. The MPC1000 can output up to
32 sounds simultaneously. There is the great difference in the level when you play single sample and play 32
sounds. If you increase the value in the Mater level field, you can increase the entire level of the MPC1000 to
create more powerful sound with less noise. However, if you playback many sounds at the same time, the
level may be overloaded, which may cause distortion. If you decrease the value in the Master level field, you
can prevent distortion when you play many sounds at the same time. However, you cannot have a good
result in respect to the noise or punch of the sound. Set the appropriate value in the Master level field
depending on the application.

If your turntables use ceramic cartridges, you'll need to use a passive interface box that converts the unbalanced ( RCA ) plugs from the turntable to balanced ( 1/4" T-R-S ) plugs to connect to your MPC1000's stereo line inputs. If your turntables have magnetic cartridges, you will need an active phone preamp, check the music retailers catalogs or on-line there are many makes and models.
If you want to mix the two turntables ( sequeing from one to the other and back continuously as in a DJ setup ), you'll need a small DJ mixer.
Hope this helps.

There is probably a switch problem. IF these use the conductive rubber contact type switch buttons where a "pill" of conductive rubber is pressed onto a circuit board with traces, CLEAN the contact rubber AND the circuit board with 99% isoprophyl alcohol and Q tips. This type buttons feel "Rubbery and squishy" when pressed.
If the buttons have a hard tactile feel, then check for a bad button that might have broken internal parts and replace it... OFTEN you can tell by the "feel" when pressing compared to others.
In either case, disassembly and service is required.
