Yamaha Electronic Drumkit, Ableton recognizes theres input, but nothing triggers
I am using ableton 8, I have a yamaha electronic kit and an edirol um1-ex usb/midi adapter.
So in ableton, I have selected the um1 as my midi input, when i hit a pad, the little yellow icon flashes in the top right of the screen. Now I made a midi track and threw in a preconfigured drum rack. pressing any pad on my electronic kit does not trigger any note value on the entire drum rack, however, ableton yellow light still blinks notifying me that theres input, but it just seems to be mapped to nothing?
Now, just to check, I hit the Midi button on the top right, and mapped a pad to some arbitrary setting, which worked.. I could trigger the setting on/off. My pad comes up as being "g1" according to the midi menu. In the drum rack, there is a sound clip associated with G1, however playing this pad does not trigger it.
any idea why? its bothering the hell out of me.
