  • Hello,

    Simply follow the same directions for Windows 7. It should work out the same way for you.

    1. Download the Alesis Vortex - Ableton Live Controller Map from the Vortex product page on http://www.alesis.com/contentmgr/show....
    2. On your computer close Ableton Live.
    3. Copy the entire Vortex folder (not just the file inside it) to the following location on your computer:
    Windows 8, 7 or Vista
    C:\Users\ [YourUserName] \AppData\Roaming\Ableton\Live [VersionNumber] \Preferences\User Remote Scripts
    Note that the Application Data folder is a hidden folder. To make this folder visible, perform the following:
    1. On your PC, open Computer.
    2. Select the Organize menu at the top of the window, and choose Folder and search options
    3. In the window that opens, select the View tab.
    4. Scroll down, locate, and select Show hidden files and folders.
    5. Click Apply, then OK.

    Setting up the Vortex in Ableton Live
    1. After you have completed the steps on the preceding pages, launch Ableton Live.
    2. Open the Preferences window.
    Select the Options menu at the top of the screen, and choose Preferences.
    3. On the left-hand side of the Preferences window, choose the MIDI Sync tab.
    4. Select the Vortex as a Control Surface:
    Windows 8
    Under Control Surface, select Vortex.
    Under Input, select Vortex.
    Under Output, select Vortex.
    5. Set Ableton to accept Track and Remote MIDI input from the Vortex:
    Next to Input: Vortex, enable Track, and Remote.
    6. Close the preferences window.
