My Ren and my mixer have recently died on my so I've ordered in a mpc studio that I should have by next week and I'm not exactly sure on how to sample vinyl on it. My understanding is I need to get a soundcard or audio interface, my question is will the soundcard just run through the mpc software or will I need another program? And also since my mixer isn't working so I don't have anything to plug my monitors into is there something I can get to sample and hook them up to or will I need two separate items?

I have a technics 1200 so no USB or line out

Well a Renaissance IS an audio interface, just like any other one. It just happens to have a fancy controller surface that works with the MPC Software. Using any other audio interface is no different, you dont need the MPC hardware at all to use it.
