Korg R3 + Ableton

I'm trying to record from my Korg R3 into Ableton and I've yet to get the sound recognized. I installed the necessary drivers while using a direct USB 2.0 as my connection into Ableton. My i/o settings are configured to the R3.

I can see the levels being recognized when I hit the keys, but I've been unable to hear the audio. I've messed with the latency and still no luck. Anyone know what I'm missing? 

Thanks in advance.

    If the levels are recognised in Live, you should have sound. Just to make sure; outputs of the R3 should go to audio inputs on your soundcard. In Live, these inputs should be activated (preferences) and the track that you use for recording the soud should be set to "in", and the "audio from" part should say "ext. in" and the corresponding audio inputs should be selected.

    Have you tried if the R3 actually makes sound? (headphones)

    Ive had an R3 working with live for a few years now and no problems so I'll run you through how I have it set up. Hopefully this helps:

    First off I have mine connected via USB for MIDI controller functionality. If you want the sounds out of the R3 you will have to do it via analogue 1/4 inch output on the back. If you have the USB connected it over-rides the analogue output on the R3 so it's either one or the other.

    For MIDI Controller Use:

    In the MIDI/Sync Tab in Live's preferences set the Surface drop-down to None, set the input to R3(KDB/KNOB) and output to R3(Sound). Then activate your track and remote buttons on the in and outs below. 

    As for the actual MIDI track I/O settings In should be MIDI All ins and All channels. (by default or you can change that as per preference) And then make sure the track is MIDI record Armed.

    For Analogue Use:

    Make sure the USB is not connected and just run the 1/4 inch output(s) into your computer via sound-card or whatever you are using. Then set up the sound-card in the Audio tab in Live's Preferences. There are plenty of vids on this elsewhere so I won't go into detail on how to do that. However, make sure the correct in's and out's are activated. (accessed through the Input/Output Config buttons in that same pref tab)

    Then on an Audio Track have Input from external in, and in the second drop down select the inputs you have routed the R3 to on you sound-card. Out route to wherever you are monitoring from. Make sure the track is either record armed on auto or on In and you should then be good to go.

    Hope that helps.
