Default Usb Midi controllers, Protools LE 7.0 and hell.

Okay, so here is the situation. i am a novice, everyone keeps sending me links to random forums, and i can't get an exact answer.

I have an oxygen 8 midi controller. all the drivers are updated, and i can access it in protools. i set up a midi track, and i can see the signal. when i hit the buttons, you can see the signal go up and down in the fader. i can't hear anything though, it lets me load patches sometimes, but i can't hear anything. when i push record it writes data, but yet, i still can't hear anything.

my controller is named digidesign 1. I'm running protools 7.0 w/ factory bundle through an mbox 2.

what I/O's do i run to hear something? do i have to set up a new track? i know this is begginer stuff, but i just cant seem to find an answer, how do i route everything up so i can hear it? If i can get a step by step way to set up each channel, it would be appreciated.

WHat instrument are you trying to play? Without some sort of MIDI instrument, such as a hardware MIDI synthesizer, sampler or sound generator, or some sort of softsynth, you will hear nothing.

MIDI data is just computer instructions for how to play a MIDI instrument. Think of it as "electronic sheet music". The computer is the musician, the MIDI data is the sheet music, and now you need an instrument for the "musician" to play.
