How do I create a click track in Deck?

To create a click track in Deck 3.5 under OS X:

Download the MIDI Metronome Standard MIDI File here:

Open the MIDI window in your Deck session and import the MIDI Metronome file. Choose the destination for the metronome track in the MIDI window and set the session tempo to the desired setting in the Tracks window.

If you don't have a MIDI interface and external MIDI gear, you can use a program called SimpleSynth as a virtual synthesizer. You can download it for free from the link below:

Just launch SimpleSynth before you launch Deck and it will show up as an available destination in the MIDI window.
