[Fwd: loopV in Ableton Live HowTo]
Thanx to Per Boysen and Ricky Graham.
HowTo get looping with loopV in Ableton Live.
Assuming you have your Midi controller set up correctly,
as it would be for hardware EDP.
1)From main menu, Options>Preferences
and select MIDI tab
for your chosen midi input device, turn 'Track' to On.
(e.g. Gordius LG appears as 'USB audio Device' here)
That will route your midi controller direct to the Live Midi tracks,
need to Midi Learn through Ableton itself.
2) the Audio tab in Preferences is where to go if you need to set up
your audio interface.
There's a useful test tone for the output, and a "Hardware Setup" button
to access your
audio interface. Test tone should be nice and pure, if it's a glitchy
it's time to increase
your buffer size.
3)By default, Ableton starts up with one Audio and one Midi track.
That's what you need.
4) Put loopV on an audio track.
if Looplug isn't there you need to put it in Live's VST plugin folder.
(or Preferences>File Folder and tell Live where to look)
5) Make sure View>In/Out is ticked (it's not by default)
6)Now the tracks look like this
Audio From needs to be "Ext In" then your desired audio input channel.
(stereo if you like)
Monitor "In" for both tracks.
Midi To should be "Audio-1"
Then it looks like this.
Midi From...select if needed
7) Right , off you go then. Your midi controller should now be able
to do Button Presses, CC for Feedback etc, and change Preset (Locals) by
