Do I need the supplied software for use of my Q25?

Do I need to install the free copy of ableton live lite 8 to use my q25 with my presonus recording software? I already have a recording program installed on my computer.

  • If you have a sequencing program with sounds (vsti's) you can use it with whatever you desire. Let me know if its not working/showing up as an option in your software. Some software won't select the controller by default so make sure to check your midi input device preferences.

  • I have a question on this same subject. Downloaded Ignite software, plug in Q25 and not getting any sounds. Computer says it found the driver and that seemed OK. The sounds on the keyboard in the software work when you press it, but nothing from the eQ25. Any thoughts?

    • Hello,

      I would like to help. Review the questions below that may answer your question.

      How many instruments can I load into one project?
      As many as your computer can handle. You will notice as you add more and get to the point where you are pushing your computer to the maximum of its ability that it will take longer to load up a new instance of an instrument. Eventually, when your computer processor and RAM have reached its max, the Add Instrument button will turn Red and you will no longer be able to add any more instruments.

      I want to play with the Players but all the options are greyed out. Why?
      In the Play Tab, each instrument defaults the Players option to Off. The user will have to manually toggle the Players option of the instrument of choice to the On position before being able to hear and edit the phrasing, chords, and arpeggiator.

      How do I shorten/adjust the begining and end points of a MIDI clip?
      In the Edit view, scroll your mouse over the right side of the MIDI clip in the upper half of the Ignite program. The mouse arrow will change to a ] and you will then be able to adjust the length ot the MIDI clip. As of the release of the Ignite software, a MIDI clip can only be adjusted from the end (right side) of the clip and not from the beginning (left side).

      Let me know if this helped.
