Drum Rack Launchpad stop playing sample if button is released

Hey, I'm currently messing around with the KillTheRobot Ableton file you can get on Novation's Youtube channel. The only issue I have is I don't now how to configure my Drum Rack to stop playing the sample if I release the button. Currently, when I press a button the sample plays at full length. How can I set it up this way ?

BTW, I'm pretty new to Ableton :)

Thank you !

    Just figured it out! All you have to do is turn the release knob way down. That knob basically controls the amount of time the sample will play for after the MIDI signal stops. :)

    On Ableton Live 9, what I did is change the Trigger/Gate setting on the sample from Trigger (default) to Gate.  Trigger causes the sample to be played even after the note is released.  Gate causes the sample to be stopped when the note is released.
