It looks like you are taking your output off of a line level source, being that it isn't amplified.. Try the speakers on a known amplified source, if the work then just add a powered source to your system...

I am trying to record sounds from my keyboard into my MPC 1000. I have what I think is the proper set-up. MIDI sync...softthru as track...etc. Problem is when I set it up I can play one sound and record...

It is not clear whether you are recording audio or MIDI. If you recorded Audio samples, you will get the same sounds back even if you change the voice on the keyboard.

If you record a MIDI sequence, and then play it back you will STILL get the same sounds UNLESS you also record the MIDI voice or patch changes so the voice is changed as it occured when you recorded it. Usually there are options taht you can enable or disable voice changes.

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

Standard speakers to the computer , low volume

You are getting low volume because there is no amplifier in those speakers. Computer speaker sets are powered -- there is an amp in one of them them which drives both speakers -- a computer audio output without an amplifier will only satisfactorily drive headphones.

Low sound on desktop pc


I have extensive experience with the CP414 (I used to work for the company that supplied it to MPC). It sounds to me like you have a broken volume knob. On the bottom edge of the LCD panel, just to the right of the MPC logo, there should be a volume control knob. This knob should only be able to turn through about 270 degrees of rotation. If it rotates freely, it is broken. These tend to break if they are hit from below. (This can happen during assembly at the MPC factory -- if a technician props the LCD panel up on its bottom edge, it will damage the volume knob.)

There are a few solutions:

#1: This is probably the easiest one to accomplish. Remove the cable door on the back of the system (it is the one at the bottom on the back -- held in by one screw). Under this door there are anywhere from 5-6 cables plugged into the motherboard. One of these is a connector with 30 pins arranged in two rows of 15. The cable plugged into this connector probably has pink wires. Short pins 7-8 on this connector (they should be across from each other, but only pins 1, 2, 29, and 30 are labeled). To short the pins, insert a thin wire into the back side of the connector so that it makes contact with the exposed pins. You could also use a resistor to do the trick - 10KOhms will give you no volume while 0Ohms will give you full volume. Something like 2.5K could give you a nice middle ground.

#2: Replace the volume knob. The part number for the knob is XV0107GPV2NB10K-3824. Good luck finding someone who will sell you one of these.

#3: Disassemble the LCD panel (it's not that hard if you have a #1 phillips screw driver) and short the volume control knob pins 2-3. This will disable the volume control completely, but it will be stuck on maximum volume. This would be best done by soldering a wire between those two pins.

Options 1 and 3 will disable the hardware volume control, but the software volume control in Windows will still work fine.

Low volume on external speakers, no volume on internal

I have all the audio drivers for that model. Please let me know what operating system you are using. These are large files, around 7mb for xp.

Crackling noise from subwoofer????


i think your speaker cannot support the sound that your computer produce. it means to say that, they are not compatible. specially when your computer sound interface that you used is 5.1 or 7.1 interface but your speaker specs is only for generic sound, you really hear a crackling sound and more if you set to higher volume.

but it can help if you only set your computer interface to generic sound or set only in lower volume it can help. because if you continue that way, your speaker can be seriously damaged that even at the lowest volume can hear the crackling sound.

or if you really want a fine good sound system then, buy a speaker that can interface with 5.1 or 7.1 or see manuals of your computer/motherboard. for recommended specs

Hi There Try this, CONNECTION Check your connections on Rear part of your PC. Lime is for Sound Out usually a speaker, Pink is for Mic, Blue for Audio Input. VOLUME Try Adjusting the vlume on your PC first. Check the volume on the Headphone too if there is one. CLEANING Using a dump clothe. Wipe the plugs with a twisting motion. WIRELESS\BLUETOOTH Check your battery if it is drained. Try replacing them with a new one or charge them if they are rechargables. If all fails then You may have a Sound Card problem. Using a spare Speaker or Headphone check it if it works. If its not then its Defective and needs replacement. If its working then your Speakers or Headphones are defective. Try fixing them by cleaning or checking the Continuity of its cables using a analog Multi tester. Hope This helps ======================= If you are having trouble with Newly bought items then return them and demand a replacement or a refund! You may have purchased a reconditioned\repaired\factory defect product.
