    What version of ableton are you using? There is a tutorial on how to hook up MIDI and audio devices. The link doesn't work btw.

    make sure its installed into your vst folder, assuming your using a pc this will be something like

    C:\program files\VST Plugins\

    next step is to open up the ableton options and click preferences so the preferences window comes up.

    Click on the File Folder tab and make sure "Use VST Plug-in Custom Folder" is activated and that the the "VST Plug-In Custom Folder" is pointed to the file containing your vsts which will be something like C:\program files\VST Plugins\

    Now click rescan plugins and let ableton scan the plugins, you can then close the preferences window and click the little icon on the very right of the interface to show you your plugin list.

    Then its just a matter of dragging and dropping the vst from the list into the channel in ableton you want it to go into.

    Isn't usually "C:\program files\Steinberg\VST Plugins" ?
