I have Live 9 Standard using an AKAI MPD26 and would like a little more info on chopping samples.

I have Ableton live 9 standard and I know how to chop a sample up and put it into a drum rack.  I'm using Akai MPD26 but what I haven't figure out how to do is to get my sample to play the whole sample when I hit a pad on my mpd26.  If I hold the pad down it will play the whole sample but if I just hit it once it will only play as much of the sample based on how long I held the pad down.  I have seen videos of folks hitting the pad once and having the whole sample play.  What am I missing in order to be able to hit my pad once and it will play the entire sample assigned to that pad?  If someone could help me with that.

    You probably have the clips set to the incorrect launch mode.

    You have to select the clip(s) and check the side for launch modes. It sounds like your clips are set to "classic" mode, but you want "1-Shot" mode.
