uhhh...'spensive metronome you go there ehy? I've had mine for years, but I haven't messed with the click track
Not sure about this, and I know the book is vague, but I think what you want to do can't be done. I think the click track is on while your song is playing, and it clikkz along at the tempo of yer song, if it even uses one.
I can only suggest you set up a pattern at the tempo you want, any pattern doesn't matter, save it as yours. Do some real time recording on that pattern and you will get a loud click track at that tempo. Send it out however yer doin it and you got a click track.
Good luck with it there chief. Seems an odd way to go to me. You got a drum machine, isn't THAT the click track, or am I missing something?
