Soundcraft Signature 12 / Ableton Live Lite

Hey all,
For the past two days I've been trying to record a few drum kit exercises but so far I've been unsuccessful.
I've looked at tutorials for the software and have followed them, also when I hit the drums I can see the green lines
so the audio is getting through to the laptop, however, after pressing record and playing, when I play back it's blank?
I've tried to figure out what I'm doing wrong but YouTube isn't much help.

Lastly, I was going to buy the less expensive model but the guy in the shop said I'd need the 12 for recording drums.
I have seven channels being used but Ableton only allows for four? Therefore, would I need to be the very expensive Ableton Live to be able to mix the seven channels as people are saying that even if you tweek the mixer to get a great sound, when you send to Ableton it will only send the raw sound and not what you've altered???

    From my experience Ableton Live Lite wasnt really usefull if you wanted to record many live sources at once, it is better for electronic music. I recomend Reaper which let's record as many tracks as you want even in the trial version, and is alot cheaper than a useable version of Ableton.

    I am also having a similar problem with Ableton 9 Lite on a Windows machine - no recorded audio back to/thru the MTK12. I am gonna start a new question on the forum and see what we can get back. JTF
