What does placed first in the drum kit refer to on this screen?

I tried to create a basic kit for Ableton last night, and was wondering what it meant when placed first in the drum kit etc. ?

It just refers to the first element of that type in the kit.

For example, let's say you have two snare drums in your kit - snare A followed by snare B. To configure the MIDI note for snare A, you should set 'Kit placement' to '1st' and then set the note and to configure the note for snare B you should set 'Kit placement' to '2nd' and then set its note.

Thanks Richard, I was overthinking that.
