Installation and activation of your sound expansion

This article shows the procedure needed to register, activate and install a sound expansion (e.g. Mercury or Helium) for Lié, Touché's companion app.

If you bought a sound expansion for using it with your MPE controller, please refer to this article instead:  Activation and installation of your MPE sound expansion.

Step 1: Registering your sound expansion on the Expressive E website

Important: If you ordered your serial directly from our web shop, then your activation code will already be visible inside 'My Downloads and Serials'. You can proceed with Step 2.

  1. Login to your account on https://www.expressivee.com/customer/account/login/ and  go to Product Registration.
     
  2. Enter your Activation Code:
  3. Link the license to your existent iLok account or create a new one, then click on Continue below. 

Step 2: Redeeming your license to your iLok account

  1. Find your new sound expansion in the 'My Downloads and Serials' section in your Expressive E account.
     
  2. Click on the AUTHORIZE button next to it.
     
  3. Redeem your license to your iLok account:



    If you don't have an iLok account yet, please create a new one on www.ilok.com. Once you have your account, return to the Authorize page and choose 'I already have an iLok Account'.
     
  4. Enter your iLok user ID and click 'OK'. The license will then be redeemed to this account.
     

Step 3: Activating your license with iLok License Manager

Step 3.1. Installing iLok License Manager

If you are Windows, iLok License Manager will already be installed on your machine, since it is part of the Lié UVI Workstation installer. Skip this step then.

  1. Go to https://www.ilok.com/#!license-manager to download iLok License Manager.
     
  2. Install it on your computer.
     

Step 3.2: Activating your license on your machine with iLok License Manager

  1. Launch iLok License Manager, click on ‘’Sign In’’ and enter the ID and password you created before.

  2. Once connected, click on Expressive E - Mercury/Helium to select it and on ‘’Show Details’’ on the bottom right corner of ilok License Manager. Click on 'Activate' to activate your license.

Step 4: Downloading and extracting the installers of your expansion

You will find the download links to your soundbank under 'My Downloads and Serials' inside your Expressive E customer account. Download and extract the archive that suits your operating system.

Step 5a: Installing the content & presets on a Windows PC

  1. After extraction, you will be shown two folders. For working with Lié, open the one that is named 'Mercury_for_Touché' or 'Helium_for_Touche'.
  2. Run the '..._Soundbank.exe' to install the sound content needed for the expansion.
  3. Run the '..._LiePresetsForUVIWorkstation.exe' to install the Lié Presets that work with the free UVI Workstation.

Note: If you own UVI Falcon, instead of Step 3, you can run the installer from within the subfolder 'UVI Falcon owners only'. Those Falcon presets will sound exactly the same, but offer full editability instead of exposing only macro controls for sound editing.

Step 5b: Installing the content & presets on a Mac

  1. After extraction, you will be shown two folders. For working with Lié, open the one that is named 'Mercury_for_Touché' or 'Helium_for_Touche'.
  2. Run the 'Mercury.pkg' or 'Helium.pkg' to install the sounddata and the Lié presets needed for the expansion.

Note: If you own UVI Falcon, you can choose to install Falcon presets instead of the UVI Workstation presets when running the installer. The Falcon versions will sound exactly the same, but offer full editability instead of exposing only macro controls for sound editing.

Step 6: Launch Lié

You can now launch Lié. You will find the newly installed presets by searching for Mercury or Helium in the search bar of Lié's browser.
