  • Hello, Charles 

    Thanks for posting! 

    Sorry to hear you are having a tough time! If you already have Ableton installed on your computer and you have the keyboard plugged in, all you have to do is load an instrument into a MIDI Track.

    All versions of Ableton come with a Grand Piano instrument.

    Go to Categories > Instruments > Simpler > Piano & Keys > Grand Piano. Click and drag this into an empty MIDI Track. If you start playing some keys you should get output from the software!



    If you want to use your included instruments, please see this guide below for a full setup with Xpand2!:
    Hope this helps!

    This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled no sound from v61.

    using ableton live 10,setup vst,activated the airxpand2,registered the abletonlive 10, settings shows the v61,tried 2 different pc's.looked in youtube,not a peep.this is supposed to be for a beginner,everytime i look i have to download more software and register it.is there a step by step guide on how to set this thing up,or should i just send it back.
