Akai LPD8 as a DP7 midi controller


I am running Motu DP 7.24 on a Macbook Pro and am trying to use an Akai LPD8 (through USB) to record my midi drums. I am using Steven Slate Drums ver 3.5 which play on Kontakt on an instrument track in DP. I already have the LPD8 set up in AudioMidi setup, and when I strike the pads, I can actually see activity in the midi monitor within DP, but I cannot for the life of me get the pads to trigger any midi notes within DP. I have the pads programmed to trigger specific drum samples, and it works great if I run Kontakt as a stand-alone program, but NOT within DP. Anybody have any help?
