Check if the Mbox2 has an echo setting that echos the audio from its input. If you want the audio to loop through the PC then it will have to echo there instead. Check that in "Sound and devices" of the PC are all set to transfer via the MBox for voice and playback instead of the internal PC audio system.

How do you wipe out
from the akai forums:
to set the os back to factory settings press and hold the erase key till the mpc has booted to the main screen.
erase the harddisk goto either the load or save screen and then choose
utility - there you will find the option to format the hdd.
can also format the drive (or any inserted compact flash-card) from your
computer thru the usb connection, but it is recommended to use the
internal format because the mpc can be a little picky when you format it
from the outside.
at first i would check if there is any folder
or the internal memory is set to autoload and just turn that of or point
it to another folder of you choice. that way you can keep the factory
delivered sounds. maybe you want to use them later, even if it is just
to explore the mpc. the factory sounds can be also downloaded later, but
be advised that there are different iterations of the stock sounds,
depending on whether your mpc shiped with a 32 or 128mb compact flash
also the mpc os is not on the harddrive but in the internal
memory. to check the version hit mode-> pad10. latest official
version is os 1.24. if your main srceen looks different than in the
manual check double and triple before you do anything, because the
previous owner might have installed the third party jj os which comes in
different versions. some of them cost a lot of money! if you find this
check the other forum here for the alternative os.

I purchased an akai mpc 2500 used and it came with
Try holding erase while you turn it on. You may have to turn off autoload also. You'll have to read the manual first ( pages 110 and 114 especially ) available here:http://www.mpcsounds.com/download_akai_mpc_manual.php It depends I think on whether the previous user saved to memory card or the internal HD.

Loading an MPC5000 with midi files
if the mpc has GM soundbank then this should be possible. You might be better off recording the audio from a suitable GM unit first of all before gigging with it, then you can make it sound the way you want and change the key to suit etc.

One sound cancels another sound out.
You MAY be saturating the circuits and/or the summing section.
There is only so much dynamic range available in both the analog and digital sections.
The kick can have a very high level so one must keep the PEAKS within the input specs for this device.
When mixing, the kick level must be kept from saturating the digital level. This is a problem of the dynamic range of the kick versus the rest of the program.
