Akai’s MPX16 has more pads and functions than its MPX8 predecessor, but remains just as reasonably priced. The Akai MPX8 was a neat little sample player and MIDI/USB drum controller. Its samples resided on cheap and available SD cards and even though somewhat sluggish when loading large files and picky about the formats it would accept, it.
Primary use for MPC: Sample chopping from .wav files - No Vinyl...yet...
(Specs & Gear):
MPC STUDIO BLACK (Recently purchased New from Amazon)
Macbook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2010)
2.4 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
8 GB Memory (I upgraded from a 4GB)
Operating On: macOS Sierra (Version 10.12.6)

All RCA cables have been replaced and tested)
OUTPUT: RCA to AUX - Headphones Jack (as of right now)
Now lets deduce together...I have:
1. Tested audio coming from sources outside of MPC (itunes, Youtube, iphone Aux, etc.) and hear NO DISTORTION.
2. Reinstalled software and audio drivers
3. Purchased a Scarlett Solo 2/2 audio interface (which yes, is set up correctly)
4. Closed all other background running programs while running MPC
5. The volume is not 'too loud' or clipping anywhere...and by anywhere, I mean: Stereo volume knob, macbook output volume, scarlett solo output monitor, faders, everything...nothing but nice medium-low bouncing green indicators on all tracks & programs in MPC.
6. I even bought 3-prong plug adapters to make sure I wasn't experiencing just a faulty connection in the outlet its plugged into.
7. I set up (separately, and at separate times) Multi-output device settings in Mac's Audio/Midi Setup.
8. I also tried running an aggregate system from my sound card as well.
9. I have tried every possible sample rate and bit adjustment possible. NO LATENCY just POPPING!
10. I have hooked the MPC up to different stereo inputs and have the same response from it. Maybe I can go 10 mins max before it starts popping again..on a good day.
11. For all the I.T. people there, yes, I also tried unplugging it and plugging it back in.
12. Zero Snap is ON.
13. Even the expansion packs and AKAI prof. samples included with purchase pop and click at any given moment.

14. The crackling and distortion happens at all different times and is not consistent or in line with the track, so I know its not poor sample quality to blame.
15. The distortion is even coming through my headphones...take the entire stereo set-up out of the equation.
16. Looking into USB 3.0 right now because that is where the internet has brought me...but c'mon...a USB is not going to be my solution?...is it? And even if it is the solution then:
a.) Akai you should include it with the hardware purchase because all said and done after dropping all this money for superior hardware and software, an upgraded USB should be a freebee or at least come out and tell us we need it.
b.) what the H else could it be???...
Because I'm just trying to make beats that make you feel what I'm feelin' and this popping, clicking **** is making me sadder than before I even knew about choppin beats.
Please...MPC community...I need you...please help me...There has been many questions regarding the Ren's audio interface as well as using your own audio interface with the MPC software. I would like to get this information all in once place for new users to help them get up and running quickly.
In my personal set-up, I am using the MPC Ren on primarily a Mac but also run it on Windows 7. I use both the Ren's audio interface as well as my UAD Apollo Firewall interface (Mac only).
Please feel free to ask any questions. Hopefully I or one of the other MPC Ren users will be able to answer your questions.
Question: Can the Ren output audio through 3rd party audio interface?
