    connect the midi out from your soundcard to your volca
    make sure the midi settings for the soundcard is enabled under the preferences in ableton.
    start a new midi track and a audiotrack.
    click the IO button next to the masterchannel

    select the desired mididevice(keyboard) under the midi input of your miditrack
    select the midioutput (the nio midiout, channel 1) of your miditrack
    connect the volca to your soundcard
    select the inputchannel on the audiotrack
    click the recbuttons on your tracks

    play the keyboard to check if ableton recieves midi in. you should hear the volca then
    record to the midiclip(miditrack) then use the audiotrack to hear the incoming sound

    good luck!

    The ableton manual is actually pretty decent too. It's pretty concise and to the point on most issues without getting bogged down in technical mumbo jumbo.

    Hello all, I have Ableton Live intro, and wishing to upgrade to the Suite version, the full suite version is a little out of my price range. I was wondering if you guys have an available Ableton coupon I can use? I tried searching and using other recommendations but they we're a failure. Please let me know if you can help! Thanks a bunch.

    Finance it with 0% interest through Sweetwater. That's what I plan to do. Around $30/month in total
