I'm running PT 8.0.5 and a M-AUDIO ProFire 2626. I'm trying to use a Alesis SR-16 drum machine to lay down a simple drum track to follow while recording other instruments. It will be later replaced by live drums. I find it easier to follow than a click track. I cannot get PT and the SR-16 in time. When I record, PT starts recording when I press play on the DM, but the DM doesn't play with the click. I can quantize the recording, but how do I make the clock work so that it records dead on without having to quantize and edit? I've searched here and around the internet and watched videos on youtube, and nothing has worked.
Here's how I have it set up. I have a midi cable from the DM to both MIDI in and out on my 2626. In the DM, I have the drum in on, drum out on, clock in on, clock out on, and MIDI thru on. In PT, I have an aux track with the Boom insert and a MIDI track. The input on the MIDI track is set to the SR-16 > all channels. The output is set to Boom-1 > Channel-1 which sends it to the aux track. All of this seems to work fine.
I went to Setup > Peripherals > Machine control, and checked MIDI Machine Control (Master), and selected the SR-16.
I went to Setup > MIDI > MIDI Beat Clock, and checked Enable MIDI beat clock for the SR-16.
Why isn't this working? I just starting fooling around with MIDI last week, and I'm sort of lost. Thanks for your help.
