Don't Know how and can't use Mixtrack output.

Hello,  I am new to Ableton and am using Ableton Lite.  I'm using a mixtrack pro to D.J but I can't find a way to play sound through the Mixtrack if you know what I mean.  If you don't well... With serato I could plug a 5.0 cable into the headphone socket, run that into an amp, and then just use the amp instead of having stuff plugged into the outputs on the mixtrack.  With Ableton, nothing plays through the jacks on the mixtrack.  I have to use the headphones on the laptop.  And I can't do that if I'm playing for more than one person.

    The headphones on your laptop use the internal sound card. But you want Live to use the external sound card, not the internal one. So you need to change this in Live's preferences.

    Try reading the manual on both Live and the Mixtrack: it is in there for sure.
