Here are the steps needed to add third party plugins to Sunday Keys for Ableton:
1. To get started in Ableton Standard or Suite, scroll down inside Sunday Keys to locate the “Add Your Instruments Here” section of the template. If you’re using Ableton Intro then this will apply to the 8th row of scenes in your set, the row containing clips titled “Your Instrument 25”.
2. To add an instrument to Sunday Keys, first choose where you’d like to put the instrument by firing the Clip of your choice. For instance, you could add an instrument to the Pads 2a track. Just fire the Your Instrument 25 clip on the pads 2a track.
3. When you fire the clip, you’ll see the empty instrument area in the Detail View down at the bottom of the screen. If you don’t see the Detail View, click “View” in the toolbar and choose “Show Detail View”.
4. Now we can locate the instrument or plugin that we’d like to add to Sunday Keys. If you’d like to load in an AU or VST plugin navigate to it within the “Plugins” category of the browser. If you’d like to load in an Ableton Live instrument Preset or a sound from an Ableton Live pack, navigate to either of those places in the browser. If you’d like to load in a preset that came in an expansion pack that you purchased from Sunday Sounds, watch the installation video that came with that expansion pack for details on installing it.
5. Regardless of where your instrument is coming from, once you’ve located it in the browser just click and drag the preset or plugin into the device area where it says “Drop an instrument or sample here”. When you do, the instrument or plugin will load into that slot in the instrument rack.
6. Now, click the clip again and hit command +R on a Mac or ctrl+R on windows to rename the clip something that you’ll remember. That’s all there is to it. From here you can repeat the process to add as many instruments as you’d like to Sunday keys. You have space to add up to 35 instruments per track to Sunday keys for Ableton but we recommend that you only add instruments that you actively need for your live performances, to keep cpu and resource usage as low as possible.
