    Hello, my fellow musicians!

    I am about to expose a great deal of my newbieness and ask for assitance regarding my home studio's wiring & routing.

    Here's my equipment:

    - PC (amd athlon +5600 X2; 2 Gb RAM DDR2 @ 800 mhz, SATA, etc)
    - Pro-tools M-Powered 7.3.1
    - M-Audio Firewire 1814
    - MOTU midi express XT
    - Yamaha 01v96v2
    - Akai MPC-4000 Plus
    - Kurzweil PC2x
    - Boss GT-PRO

    I, usually, connect the korg, kurzweil, boss and yamaha stuff to my akai and I sync everything from there. Works great for jamming live with my band. In fact even the M-Audio synced perfectly to all of this thanks to the Akai

    The problems started when I tried setting up a studio and sync everything using the MPC-4000. Either Pro-tools or the MOTU midi Express XT don't like the MPC or something is wrong... I couldn't generate the metronome with the akai, trasmiting to the triton rack, nor pro-tools could. I got very irregular/intermittent clicks and sloppy transport movement on Pro-Tools.

    I tried syncing everything with Pro-tools as lord/master of the universe... and it doesn't work either.

    You guys can check out a screen shot of my setup at: http://introbella.com/downloads/fotos/studio_diagram.png

    Can somebody help me out with the setup? I want be able to control the BPM from the MPC-4000 and have it serve as master sync. If this is not recommended, then, please, make suggestions!

    Another cool thing would be pointers to some {studio,midi}-setup-howtos!
