Default MIDI Newbie: Problems using external sequencer


Below is a screenshot of wwhere I am stuck. I want to use a plug-in (Xpand) for virtual instruments on several Instrument Tracks and control them on my MPC 2000 (external sequencer). So far, I hear sound and I am able to send Midi information to Instrument Track 1. However, once I try to set up any of the other tracks to perform the same task I can't hear/control the internal sounds. This sounds like an easy fix or a step that I am missing in my configuration. Please see below and help.

I don't see if you've routed MIDI to the instrument tracks correctly (View(menu) > Mix window > Instruments?

Select the MPC Channel 1 as "Inst 1"'s MIDI input, MPC Channel 2 as "Inst 2"'s MIDI input, and so on. I don't even know the MPC, but with a built-in sequencer I'd say it's multitimbral?
