I am trying to sync ableton to the master clock of the Djm 2000. 

I have setup sync to djm in ableton preference,s

set ableton to sync to an external midi clock 

I can see that ableton is synced to the same bpm as the Djm but when i press the start midi button ableton will not play any clips also i noticed that the bpm in ableton goes crazy.

Has anyone managed to sync the 2000 with ableton.

@Gary > Pressing the MIDI START button doesn't trigger the clips; you need to assign some command within the DJM2000 to the clip launch triggers.

I also have some issues myself! I have ableton working successfully through the midi on the DJM2000 and i am also using serato sl3 to dj while i play loops/etc through ableton over the songs. The problem i am having is i cant get the drum loops in ableton to sync with my songs going through serato?? FYI i have ableton coming through channel 1/2 and 3/4 and serato on channel 4/5 and 5/6?? HELP PLEASE!

@Charlie > Have you read my MIDI guide? It goes into that sync issue.
