Syncing Voyager To Ableton

I'm trying to use Ableton as a Master clock to sync to my Voyager and Mopho via MIDI to USB and I'm getting nowhere fast. Basically I want to use Ableton to program sequences to be sent to the Voyager but I'm not hearing anything. I know it's not the cable because I tested the Mopho with it's included software sound editor and those two programs synced perfectly. I'm a noob when it comes to syncing external synths to the computer. I'm running Windows XP if that's of any use. What settings do I need to have in Ableton to get the ball rolling?

Create an external instrument track.

Set the midi channels on your Ableton track and Voyager.

Enable monitor in.

You should hear it.

You should also see the blinking midi lights every time you hit a note.

Can you not hear it at all or its just not syncing?

Both. The MIDI light isn't coming on and I hear nothing.
