having a few problems regarding sound playback on abelton live.

I recently bought a novation launch pad and i'm having some trouble with abelton. when i start a new project, i'm not getting any sound, i put down my midi tracks but when i hit play i get no audio. also my launchpad doesn't light up at all, i have all the options right, I'v checked and double checked and i can't seem to find the problem, i'm sure it's a pretty easy fix i just have no idea what i'm doing.

    Perhaps a list of steps you have already done and tested might help or everyone is going to suggest all the basics. Here are some more:

    - Are your speakers on?

    - Is the correct channels selected for your sound card on the master channel?

    - Do your VU meters show audio activity when you are playing stuff?

    - Make sure you start the launchpad before you start Live.
    - make sure your audio interface and controllers are selected in the preferences.
    - make sure there are actually instruments in your midi tracks.

    Hope this helps.
