    Hi, Have you got the correct MIDI channels set? Also are the MIDI NOTES on the DM6 triggering the correct MIDI NOTES in Impulse?

    I'd like to help you !

    Hey - Abletons Impulse sample slots are mapped to C3 to C4 (in Cmaj scale) - your DM6 is probably sending out the midi notes in the General Midi (GM) Standard - (e.g. Kickdrum is C1, Snare D1 etc.) - you need to 'tune' the incoming midi notes.

    I wrote a preset for this purpose and made a tutorial:
