This article explains how to set up Touché or Touché SE to work within Ableton Live 9 and Live 10.
Ableton Live scans its plug-in database on every launch.
In macOS, Live will scan the default folder for VST and AU plug-ins, which contain Lié.
In Windows, our Lié installer will place Lié.dll (the plug-in file in VST2 format) in C:\Program Files\Vstplugins if you didn't choose another directory during installation. This is the standard folder that Live uses for VST2 plug-ins. If you defined a Custom Folder for VST2, you will have to manually move the Lie.dll to this folder. You can look up the directory that you set here:
Ableton Live 9: Options -> Preferences -> File & Folder -> Plug-In Sources
Ableton Live 10: Options -> Preferences -> Plug-Ins -> Plug-In Sources (see screenshot below)

Note: Please do not activate any button for TOUCHE (Port 2), since this would interfere with the recognition system between Lié and the Touché hardware.
You will find the automation that you recorded as 'Envelopes' in the Clip View of the respective Clip.
You don't want to be limited to control only VST instruments loaded inside Lié with your Touché (SE)? If you want to comfortably map any parameter that is available for Live's MIDI Learn functionality to a dimension on Touché (SE), please use the Max4Live device available as a free download in your Expressive E customer account. In order for it to work, please
You could also bend the curve with the slider below each slot, draw a custom sensitivity curve by clicking inside a slot, and set min/max values.
Since the Touché Mapping Utility is capable of doing global mappings and doesn't depend on being on the same track as the parameters that you assign, you are able to have multiple utilities in one project, each doing a separate thing. Switch through them via enabling or disabling the 'Arm recording' button on the respective MIDI track they are loaded in.
If you can't or don't want to use our Touché Mapping Utillity, you could still use Touché (SE) as a MIDI class compliant controller in Ableton Live.
Tip: To have a better separation between the axes, when Live expects you to move just one axis that you want to map (for MIDI Learning), temporarily decrease the sensitivity of your Touché (SE) to the mininum via turning the Encoder counter-clockwise.
Attention: The axes that you map with Live's MIDI Map mode won't be able to get through to Lié anymore. If you want to use Lié again, make sure to disable the 'Remote' button for Touché in the MIDI settings again.
