Dumb question i know but i'm an old school MPC 2000XL guy and i took a long break and recently decided to get the Akai MPC Live. My setup is extremely basic right now (don't even have a mixer yet and i'm sampling direct from my iphone and hearing the playback on monitors). Every time i try sampling off my phone the sound is horrible and distorted. What am i doing wrong? Thanks in advance for your help.

Maybe the phone is turned up too loud or the mpc gain is too loud.
Maybe the source on the phone is bad.

thanks - i've adjusted the sound on the phone as well as the mpc gain. You think i should get a small mixer to help me with this?

You really should not sample from your phone. I had a homie that sampled a record from Italy and got several long distance charges after.
