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.

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.
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.
Simple way is MIDI out from Juno to MIDI in on MPC, then (depending on how you want to work), connect MIDI out from MPC to the in on the Juno. If you do this you MUST turn local control off on the Juno or else you'll get double triggers (internal + msg in from MPC). Now to record sequences on MPC , set MIDI to as track in setup window (on the 2500, this is accessed by pressing MODE then pad 9, then press button under the corresponding tab [on LCD]) then set your MIDI channel by port, meaning if your MIDI cable is physically connected to out A, in your LCD in bottom right corner it will show as follows: 1A. This indicates you are transmitting on MIDI channel 1; port A. Remember, MIDI IS NOT AUDIO!!!!! Since the Juno is a synth and not a workstation, all transport controls are handled by the MPC, that's pretty much it... Hope this helps a little, enjoy!
P.S. Go to mpc-forum.com its THE sh**! They also have links for their e-book I have one for the 2500 and its awesome!!!
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.
I'm having the same problem. This is my second MPC 1000 and my first one didn't have this problem. I bought one of the first one-thousand MPC 1000's sold in the US. I loved it. I sold it for rent, boo hoo. I'm glad to have another one back in my life. But sad to see it having issues already. I've only had it for a week. I have emailed Akai regarding this issue. I'll post pack here if they give me a good fix.
The jack with the guitar symbol is a high impedance input for a guitar so you will get a proper level and sound when plugging your guitar straight in. All of your question did not appear in the post so try rewording it so we know what you are trying to do. Thanks.
