Can't get Sound from Midi keyboard AKAI mpk49

I set up the preference correctly pointing software to keyboard controller, but

it's inconsistent, sometime it activates sometimes it doesn't, maybe I'm missing a step here? I point it to the right devise(MPK49,) input is on, Audio source in place(ASIO, Driver). but no signal.

On the other hand the keypad for the computer works as a controller, but that's not what I want. Any answers out there?

    I'm not even that far yet, i understand arming a track to record, I'm just trying

    to get the software in lives sound to communicate properly with the midi-key board so

    I can get sound to record. The issue is getting the signal from the midi keyboard to work with lives software. Arming the track shouldn't have anything to do with it.

    You know hit a key play a sound as simple as that...

    your controller should work w/o a problem and be auto mapped. maybe its your usb cable and the port your using. if the midi light blinks at the right top of the screen then ignore that.

    Thank you for the advice :-) I will check the ports and USB cable. The tech support

    at live ,had me delete some files and repair the library in preferences. This seemed to do the trick. Cool I'm up in running, this program is powerful!

    If anyone else is having issues with this (or any other) controller, please don't hesitate to get in touch with Ableton Technical Support, at http://www.ableton.com/support/contact_technical_support. You'll also want to contact support at the controller's manufacturer.
