I'd like to use the internal clock of my Akai MPD232 as the MIDI Master Clock for BWS 2.1.

I've set "Sync Method" to "Midi Clock" and "Midi Input" to my MPD232. when I hit play on the MPD232, Bitwig counts the BPM correctly, but I can't start any clips? They just "hang" in the "playing" state and don't actually start playing.

Any ideas?

Can you see in the Bitwig Studio transport display if it is playing?

No. BPM is the only thing that changes as soon as I press the play button on the MPD232.

Then the play/stop commands are configured to the wrong standard, maybe currently you use "MMC" - you should set it to "MIDI". Explained on page 11 of the MPD232 manual:

Wow. It works with "MMC/MIDI"

But it is solved already, as you can see in the comment above.
