on the main page you will see an F3 or F4 function that says click, press it, and then change to whatever option you would like. i.e count in rec and play or count in rec.

hope that helped

It sounds like in the Click screen you have the Count in set to OFF. Change this to REC ONLY and you should be good to go...
By neilmagikjohnson Fri Mar 06, 2009 4:18 pm
count in : rec only

in rec: yes

rate 1/4

...its just not givin me the count in.

Even tho its 7 years after the last person posted....
I am having the same problem with my click in the MPC1000

I have all the correct setting, in F2 rec only, then i press rec then play start but it wont count in, but it did before.

I am tracking some midi in, maybe that effected something?

Any help would be so appreciated!

My set up is: MPC1000 master to MOPHO(slave) and MOPHO to master back to MPC1000(slave)

I am able to reproduce the problem with my mpc-1000 and i could not find a solution either... [until i did]

Are you moving from an MPC-2000xl per chance? I did recently -- and this was the only thing about it that was about to force me to throw the thing out the window. .

The answer for me was simple.. I did not have any thing " set" with my MIDI, but i did have the MIDI-IN cable in place, as it still accepts the signal from my sound card by default.

After reading this, I decided to see if pulling the MIDI cable made any changes, and it did the trick. You may have to select your pgm and sq again for some reason.. I am using free JJOS 3.something

TO make it work the same as the MPC 2000* set it to REC IN 1/4 In PLAY no in REC yes

Good luck
