So my MPD218 I just got will do note repeat if I have it set to Tap Tempo, but it doesn't produce any sound at all if it's set to external clock, which is what I need. I tried it in Serato Studio and didn't work, so I tried Studio One and it didn't work there either. Finally I decided to try it in Ableton Live because Akai has actual instructions on their site on how to set it up properly in Ableton. Didn't work there either. I tried it with the track paused and playing in all three DAWs. Nothing. Note repeat works if it's set to Tap Tempo but I don't see the use of that.

How do I get the note repeat to work with External Clock sync?
