Hi Dj Owe,

Sounds like you're in the wrong octave/range. Toggle up or down until your are in the correct range (C1). Usually in Ableton this is down two octaves (press 'Z' twice).

It kind of works like any other synth VST, you'll need to record your MIDI sequence into Ableton and then it will appear in your Session View or Arrangement View.

Hope this helps!

I'm not sure of your workflow sorry Dj Owe so I can't pin-point where you're going wrong. Are you able to upload a quick video of the issue and post a link here?

Are you able to record other synths or instruments in Ableton? If you're unable to record anything in Ableton it might be a larger issue.

Make sure Ableton is set to record, and your Serato Sample channel has the Record Arm button enabled. Then, hit play (record) and punch in your slices. Once you're finished, stop playback in Ableton and you should have either a recorded clip (in the session view) or your arrangement will have changed.

Let me know if this is not the case.
