I gave this a test today. From what I could tell, the metronome does not go to tracks 17/18 even when rhythm track is turned on.
Edit: I just found something weird that might be related to this. When I have Rhythm Track turned on and go into the Metronome page, the display I see is not the same as shown on page 308 of the User Manual. Rather, I always see a Metronome settings page that includes an OUTPUT SELECT field. I am guessing this is related somehow to the fact that my metronome is not going to the Rhythm Track.
As a workaround I can create a simple user drum pattern that replicates a metronome and that does appear on tracks 17/18, so works ok for my purposes.
Although I've had the VS2000 for a long time, this was the first time I've dug into making user drum patterns and I was pleasantly surprised to find a pretty decent step sequencer lurking within. Man, these Roland machines are very mature and deep designs!
