Trouble installing Loom/Hybrid & opening in Ableton

Hi, I bought an M-Audio midi keyboard a while ago and it came with a free download of Loom and Hybrid. I keep on trying to download them so that I can use them in Ableton, but I think I'm doing it wrong. Instructions for installation on the M-Audio page for the Code49 that included these two VSTs don't really help. I'm downloading the zipped Loom file to my downloads folder, then extracting the setup files to my C:\Program Files(x86)\Steinberg folder. Once I run the set up and download the Loom_x64.dll files to my Steinberg folder and try to open it in Ableton Live 9 Lite however, I can't find it in my plug-ins tab even after selecting the Steinberg folder as my VST Plugin Custon Folder in the File Folder Tab of the Preferences menu. What should I do?

  • Hi Erick,

    Thanks for posting. 

    You don't want to extract the contents to that folder, as that will make the installation process more difficult than it needs to be. Instead, I would recommend extracting the contents to a destination on your computer that's easy for you to access, such as your Desktop. After you've gone through those steps and install your software, follow the steps in this guide below to scan and load your plugins within Ableton:

  • I was having problems with Hybrid 3 not showing up after several reinstalls.

    I am running the 64 bit Ableton Live 9 Lite as admin (Windows 7 64 bit OS). I made sure to install the Hybrid 3 64-bit VST to the folder where other 64-bit VST's exist.

    My solution: Go into Ableton Live 9's preferences, File Folder tab, turn off "Use VST Plug-In Custom Folder" then turn it back on. It took a moment to refresh my list of plug-ins, and now Hybrid_x64 is on my list of plug-ins in the browser.
