I'm using this mpc 1000 to sequence midi with my other synths

but actually I cannot monitor what am I playing while I'm recording or whatever

only I can hear it after I've finished recording.

Is there any function that I can monitor midi IN signal?

I'm pretty sure I've set everything correct in [mode]->[Midi/Sync]

Yeah you are not going to hear anything at all with MIDI. Its just data transfering from one unit to another. I'm sure you got the MIDI part down pact, but audio will always be audio.

Only way to hear sound is connecting audio cables from your synth and to an interface or to the MPC1000 itself. Then try your MIDI setup again. Try connecting the MIDI Out of the synth and into the 1000's MIDI In and connect the audio out of the synth and into the input of a mixer or interface to see if you can monitor it.
