Tracking into Pro Tools from an MPC 2000xl

This may be a stupid question, but since I've got the 2000xl (upgraded from the 60 II), I forget almost everything, not to mention, its a whole different ball game. I'm trying to track beats into my pro tools session, but I go to solo the track and hit record & play and it just erases that track. My question is how can I get the metronome ticks to stop after 1 bar so that i can track in my kicks/snares/etc...

And I don't use MIDI...I'm completely lost. Please if anyones got any advice, help me out.

u stop the metronome on the main page where it says "count" place ur cursor there and give the wheel a spin till its off. to record since u don t use mmc or mtc all u have to do is press play while PT is recording. I advise u to use the mmc which will make everything easier(synch, tempo...). midi synch (MMC or MTC) can be tricky but it is worth the effort once u have it down. hope this helps
