    You need a scsi CDrom Drive and a akai,Roland,Emu formated sample cd.

    Do you Ebay?

    There out there.

    Look for SCSI CD drive.... and look for the older apple unit's you will save some money.
    It's not the tools you use to make the beat. It's how you use your tools to carve out the groove from your soul.

    Or...you could go the cheaper route and sample from a cd player into the MPC using the rca's or 1/4 inch jacks.
    ( dont know which the MPC has )

    The problem sometimes is that sometimes the quality of the audio is bad

    wouldnt it be top quality if its sampled from a cd ? cd's are already mastered and are in top condition. even the old stuff on cd is re-mastered to sound good. i dont get what your saying...

    sampling audio from a cd player:

    1. Do it digitally, (though you'd need the output expansion board for the mpc to do that)

    2. If you have a pro cd-r machine with balanced outs ( the mpc has balanced 1/4 jack inputs)do it that way

    3.If you have a DJ mixer with balanced out and a cd with normal phono outs plug it into the dj mixer then go balanced out into the mpc.

    4. A cd-rom connected by scsi is the easiest way to load in data like wavs, snd files etc
