Edit: I have downloaded Midi ox and it is showing the midi signals being recognized -- although with an alarming amount of delay. it's just getting the drum to connect to ableton is where I am not making any progress.

New update : on the top right of ableton ... i can see the midi in light is lighting up when I hit the pads. I have a drum rack loaded with a few sounds on there. i have armed the track. For Midi From, I have selected All channels. For midi preferences; control surface: None. input : io2 (that's my audio interface) and output : io2.
Audio tab; Driver : ASIO, Device : asio4all v2.

I feel like i'm bumping the thread by essentially talking to myself LOL .. sorry about that -- I should have been more thorough in my first post.
