Ableton Live Lite Vst

2/15/2022by admin

Live 10 Lite is a lightweight version of Ableton Live 10. It comes with all of Live’s essential workflows, instruments and effects – everything you need to record songs, create hands-on with your controller, take music made in your apps further and so much more. Free on Splice till Dec 23 2020. Can I use third-party plug-ins in Live Lite? Yes, Live Lite supports VST plug-ins (Windows, Mac) as well as Audio Unit (AU) plug-ins (Mac only). Find instructions on how to use VST plug-ins with Live on your Windows computer here. If you are on a Mac and use VST and AU plug-ins, check out this article.


Live might crash during the scanning process if an incorrect VST directory has been chosen, for example the root directory of the C: drive. VST plug-ins are.dll files. Live can not distinguish VST.dlls from other.dlls, for example drivers. If the custom VST folder contains non-VST.dlls, Live might crash as it tries to interpret them as VSTs. Live scans any shortcuts inside the vst folder too, so you can add all the folder shortcuts you want and the Live browser will treat the shortcuts as if the folders are actually in the vst folder. I know what you mean about multiple folder paths though too. Tracktion has this feature.

Having the option to add more than one VST folder in the preferences would be great, Sonar has this feature (but I hate Sonar and it's practically the only thing I like about it) The advantage of having this feature is that you can add one VST folder at a time and Ableton would scan each individual VST folder. So if you have some plugins that crash on scan you could simply only add the folders with the working plugins. It's specially helpful when you have tons of VSTs installed. Scanning tons of VSTs is very time consuming specially when you have many that crash Ableton on scan.Hello,
Please bear with me as my use of Live has been limited compared to most I suspect. I came from the land of Performer, Cakewalk and the like, and found that I could create so much faster in Live that it became my sequencer of choice. This despite the fact that I do little to no audio and have never used it 'Live'

Ableton Live Lite Vst Software

Now however I am looking to gig as a keyboard player for the first time in quite a while. I'm going to try softsynth-only, using a pc laptop if all goes well. I was pretty much resolved to using Live by (if nothing else) arming tracks with pre-loaded vsts.
But...a coworker who plays live shows on a Mac showed me Mainstage, and this got me wanting a slicker approach than arming tracks. Being able to create splits for example is very handy. Obviously for pc I'm in trouble, as there is no Mainstage version (and I'm not eager to spend a bunch more money regardless )
I've started looking into VST hosts, a new world I knew nothing about, checking into such programs as Forte, VST Host etc. Before I go too far though, I want to make sure I'm exhausting the possibilites within Live. (I'd never messed with Clips at all until yesterday for example; I found them in the manual when looking for Program Changes). Speaking of, is there a way to 'draw' program changes into a @##$#@ track? That's something I used to do with other sequencers. I could potentially put my set's changes in a sequence that I could 'play' to go to the next song without loading a new ableton file. Loading a new ableton file, one per song, is an option that I considered--I'd wonder about loading times though.

I'm looking to avoid monkeying around on the pc during the gig as much as possible. Basically I need a way to change patches (and ideally other settings such as effects, levels). I'd love it if Live works out for me, as I dearly love the program for at-home composing (ironically)
