First off hey everyone I finally got another mpc after about 10 years I use to be on here with a 2kxl.

So im trying to hook up my synth via midi so I can play dawless and just jam. I would like to be able to record as well.
Trial 1 - with below specs. so I could record notes in the mpc grid for the 4 bars then the mpc completely froze as soon as it was done? I could not here anything through the MPC only from the 06 little built in speaker. I unplugged 1 Midi cord Mpc midi in to 06 out this then un froze the mpc but when I hit play again it only played through the 06 little speaker and was playing something completely different to what I had played?
Mpc Midi out to 06 Midi in
06 midi out to mpc midi in
Mpc settings
Track 1 - Midi
Program - Off
Mode_Midi/sync - Active Track - All, Soft through - As Track? Sequence Change - off?, Midi out after touch - No? Sync? not sure on what to change.

Any help would be great I have tried hunting you tube and net for answers but not found much yet. Sorry for all the Noob questions.

just for my own reference or anyone else who needs the answer I figured it out. well mostly hehe.
I have Mpc midi out> to Juno Midi In then to here the play back and everything through the MPC I have the Juno Through out > to the MPC Record in this makes it have playback all just through the MPC. I have a step sequencer going on the Juno and it plays to the BPM of the MPC so I can Live Jam.

I can then straight record in like a sample if I like a certain sound.
