You either weren't editing preset 9, or you didn't send the changes to your QuNeo using the "Update Preset" or "Update All" buttons (or your QuNeo wasn't actually connected to the editor when you did so).
The MIDI channel is also important — pads need to be on channel 3, everything else needs to be on channel 9.
The script is solely listening for MIDI notes and CCs. All Live scripts behave this way — they listen for MIDI coming from whatever device is defined in the Control Surface preferences. When it receives the appropriate MIDI message, the script then performs the defined action. You technically don't even need to use a QuNeo with the QuNeo script — if a controller sends the appropriate notes/CCs the script will work.
For example: on preset 9, the top-left corner of the top-left pad on QuNeo is set to output note number 112. In the script, if MIDI note 112 comes in it triggers the top-left clip in the red box. You can place note 112 on any Quneo button/slider/rotary/pad and it will then trigger the top-left clip in the red box. It doesn't matter where it is, it only matters that it's sending note 112.
I just plopped note 112 (channel 3) on one of the rotaries, now it triggers the top-left red box clip every time. Bam.
