No Midi Signals from Alesis Q25?

Post by IgnatzM » Sun May 16, 2021 2:59 pm

Hey

I am brand new to using any kind of MIDI controller or DAW so please bear with me. I recently purchased the Alesis Q25 MIDI controller because a friend recommended it as a good starter, and because it came with Ableton Live 10 Lite. I am using Windows 7, and my laptop meets Live 10's requirements, though I did have some trouble installing - it seemed to install fine after I cleared some room for it though. But now it's not detecting any MIDI signals from my controller? I know it will not make sounds unless I use the instruments that come with Live on a MIDI track, but I can't even get the signals for a track and I'm not sure what else to try. I definitely have Track and Remote for the Q25 switched on in my preferences, and I know there's no problem with the controller because I can use it just fine in Melodics (a very basic keys tutorial that comes with it). Does anybody know what I should do/try? Very happy to provide further details if that is required. Thanks x
