Hi everyone,
I just recently downloaded and installed the demo version of Vienna Ensemble Pro to my Windows 7 PC. However, I am having a very difficult time getting the routing setup correctly in Ableton LIVE. Im trying to use PLAY in VePRO connected to Ableton. Ive read the instructions manuals and watched the video tutorials and am still having trouble.


I will try to explain the situation as best I can. Here is what is happening:


- I start up a VePRO 64bit Server application.


- I then load up Ableton LIVE


- I create a midi track in Ableton and open up an instance of the VePRO VST plugin. I then connect up to VePRO server app and it opens up a VePRO application window. Connection is successful.


- I leave the Master bus instance in VePRO alone.


- I then create a new VSTi instance of East West PLAY in VE Pro. This is set to "ALL" on both the midi port and midi channel in VePro. I then add an instrument patch(piano) inside of the PLAY instance in VePro and set that instrument to channel 1 in PLAY.


- I then create a new MIDI track in Ableton and set the output to "VE Pro 1 - 1." Works brilliantly, audio gets spit back into Ableton via the Instrument Track I've got the VePro plug-in on. I then load another instrument patch(trumpet) in channel 2 of PLAY, create another MIDI track in Ableton and set output to "VE Pro 1 - 2". Again, works great, audio coming through the Instrument Track in Ableton separately from the piano.


Here is where the problem starts:

- Now I create a new VSTi instance of PLAY in VePro (set to "ALL" on both the midi port and midi channel) and load an instrument patch(drums) set to Channel 1 in PLAY.


- I create a new midi track in Ableton and set the output to "VE Pro 1 - 1." But when I play through the latest midi track (aimed toward VePRO) I get not only the new instance of PLAY(drums) channel 1 sound, but also the original PLAY channel 1 sound(piano) playing at the same time.


So it seems the midi routing I have going is not discrete/separating the two. I cant figure out how to setup multiple instance of PLAY in VePRO so that they are played separately on each midi track I create in Ableton.


I have both instances of PLAY in VePRO set to ALL for the midi port and the midi channel. I have tried changing these values in VePRO and then tried linking them up in Ableton but that does not work either.


What am I doing wrong? Is it even possible to load more than one instance of PLAY in VePRO and have them play separately through a DAW? or do I have to open an separate instance of VEPRO for every instance of PLAY I want to use?
A lot of this stuff is new for me as Im still learning as I go so Im sure Im just missing something, problem is I have no idea what that is.

I am completely lost here and really need some help with this. I can see the potential with this software if I can just get it to work. Im hoping I can do that before the 30 day demo expires.


Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

No answer on this yet I see :(

I'm having the exact same problem.  Using VEPro4 in Ableton Live and getting that weird MIDI routing issue.  MIDI channel 1 always plays along with whatever other channel is actually selected.  This behavior works properly with every other multi-output VI plugin that is directly used within Live.  Only VEPro has this issue.  Is this something that is working properly in VEPro5?
