MPC Live not starting synced MIDI device while recording with count-in

Hello,

I'm having a problem with my MPC Live while recording with MIDI sync.
I am trying to record an audio track of a Roland TR8 synced as a slave to the MPC Live (master). If I have the metronome count-in, the TR8 never starts. if I have no metronome count-in, it works as intended ...

  • Hey Benoit,

    Thanks for posting!

    I'm sorry you're having trouble with this! I've seen this in the past when synchronizing the MPC Live with Roland gear. I've tested synchronization with other drum machines like the Rhythm Wolf and software (Ableton Live) and the start message was received with count-in on or off. It seems that there is a message that the Roland gear is either not receiving or it is receiving but it does not understand the message.

    I have submitted this to the Akai team and I would recommend that you do the same with the MPC software's feedback module. The feedback module is represented by a smiley icon at the lower right side of the software next to the browser icons. This information goes directly to the Akai team for consideration!

    Thank you for your feedback!

  • I found with TB-03 and TR-08 that when in recording mode on an audio track it does not start the sequencer properly, but when hit play alone it works correctly

    Take a look at what they are doing differently when play and record cos play works and record does not.

    Actually I noticed that during count-down for recording a split second before recording starts the tb-03 is triggered to start and stops when recording actually starts.

    So it like some kind of pre-start message starts its sequencer and start message stops it again.

  • I’m gunna go ahead and add to this, a year later. Same issue with my Arturia Keystep slaved correctly in attempt to use its arp and other features. When set up properly, arturia receives clock when recording begins, then immediately almost simultaneously stops. Really frustrating.
