How do i get an output sound with ableton?

I purchased the Novation Impulse & it came with a copy of ableton live lite. 

I haver set up everything and the impulse comes with auto map,

but i AM GETTING NO OUTPUT SOUND FOR ANY INSTRUMENT TRACKS

When i strike a key on my impulse or the actual keyboard it shows signal that the input sound is being made, but no sound is being played

 

ALSO

 

I have no instrument, drum racks, or any sounds when i select the instrument tabs

 

super frustrating, any help would be awesome.

    Yeah frustrating indeed lol, try arming the track so it turns red.. turn on auto monitor.  also go through lives built in lessons,, should be available even in Lite version, good luck. as far as the no instruments maybe there not available in lite, i know just Live without suit you get no instruments, only impulse and simpler.

    Hi there,

     

    It is possible that your audio hardware is not yet set up in Live's Preferences. Have a look at this article and video:

    http://www.ableton.com/articles/getting-started-1-audio-interface

     

    If you still experience the issue, a good idea here would be contacting our Support directly. 

     

    Best regards from Berlin,

    Stas.

    I'm having the same problem- I installed launchpad edition v. 8.0.6, I'm on a macBook Pro running 10.6.8

    When I go into the preferences for audio,

    I hear the test signal sound, no problem

    but when I drop things into the tracks and hit the buttons on my pad, everything blinks, the software shows activity

    but I hear nothing via my headphones or computer speakers

     

    my audio out is set to Core

    and built-in input and built-in output...

     

    help!
