Adding Serum to Ableton
- Download the Serum installer (choose full installer if you've never installed Serum) from your account page.
- Ableton's VST/AU settings need to be properly set to find the plugin, for that navigate to Ableton's Options > Preferences > Plug-ins
(Preferences > File and Folder in Live versions prior to 10.1).
- Mac users need to make sure "Use AudioUnits/VST" are all checked and hit Rescan.
- Windows users need to turn on the "Use VST2 Plug-In custom folder option and click on the Browse button for the "VST2 Plugin Custom Folder" then navigate to the location you installed Serum. (When you install Serum it asks for a VST 64-bit destination. This installs a Serum_x64.dll file into that selected folder. )
VST2 plugins don't have a default installation location on Windows. Common locations users choose for VST2 installation:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST2
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg\VST2
