Error Message re midi device

n-track 3.3

I have used n-track sporatically for a period of time and did not experience any difficulty activating the record mode. Today, I started to receive the message " error in selecting midi device" when I hit record. I can click the “OK” on the message and can proceed to record but the extra step is an annoyance. Anyone having a similar problem?
I am using Win. 98SE, 2.28 Ghz, M-Audio 2496 soundcard, AKG 1000Cs Mic, and Tube MP Mic preamp.

Try checking n’s metronome settings. Make sure it is off if you are not using it. Also, check to make sure the proper device settings are selected in the Preference dialogs.

Thanks for the help, problem was in metronome settings.
