Alternatively, we have also printed those steps for you here:
  1. Set up an IAC-Bus.
    Directly from within Pro Tools go to: Set UpMIDIMIDI Studio. This opens the Mac utility Audio MIDI Setup.

    Select WindowShow MIDI window.

    Double-click on IAC driver. For the routing to Pro Tools at least one bus should be created. If your project in Liquid Notes exceeds 16 channels, set up additional IAC busses.

    Activate Device is online.
  2. Set up as many Instrument Tracks in Pro Tools as required.
  3. Instantiate the desired virtual instrument for each track in the corresponding insert slot.
  4. Use the MIDI input selector of each instrument track to choose the IAC bus and the corresponding channel. Unless you have renamed the IAC bus while setting it up, it will be listed as IAC Driver, IAC Bus 1, Channel 1, 2, 3…….
  5. Use the MIDI output selector to make sure that the virtual instrument instantiated on the channel is listed. If not, select it from the drop-down list.
  6. Activate the Track Record Enable button for all tracks.
  7. Verify in the Instruments and Routing window of Liquid Notes that all Out Ports and Out Channels correspond with the routing in Pro Tools.

That's it! This will make Liquid Notes work with Pro Tools just fine. Find additional information on troubleshooting for Pro Tools at
