Ableton Live 11 - Plugin support for earlier Loupedeck Software versions

You need to manually install the support update to use Ableton Live 11 with Loupedeck software 5.0.1 or earlier.

Note that Loupedeck software 5.0.2 and up supports Ableton Live 11 natively.

  1. Make sure your your Loupedeck software is version 5.0.1 or earlier

  2. Download the zip-file titled “Loupedeck" from this location

  3. Unzip and place the “Loupedeck”- named folder into this location on your computer:

* Suite, Standard, Trial etc.

! The Program Data folder might be hidden from view.

macOS

Navigate to Ableton Live 11 in your applications folder. Right-click and select “Show package contents”. Then navigate to: /Contents/App-Resources/MIDI Remote Scripts/

Do note, that this folder should override a previous Loupedeck Folder, if there is one. Also, be sure to put the folder in the Ableton Live 11 files, not Ableton Live 10.

  2. Voilà! Your Ableton - plugin update should be ready for use.

Known Issues:

You might see a “winerror 10035” flash on the bottom text bar, but that should not affect the usability of the plugin.

If you host both Ableton Live 10 and Ableton Live 11 on the same computer, some of the commands might prompt open the Ableton version not currently in use.
