The Alesis V Mini is a powerful, intuitive, and portable MIDI controller that lets you take full command of your music software. This article walks through on how to setup the Alesis V Mini with FL Studio.
Before scanning the plugins into FL Studio, make sure that they are fully authorized and ready to go. The plugins will install a software called the iLok License Manager that will help keep track of your plugins and allow you to move them later on if necessary. Here's a quick and easy way to Authorize your plugins by using the ilok License Manager.
If you have difficulty locating a plugin within the FL Studio software, be sure FL Studio is reading plugins from the correct location where your plugins are installed.
Remember, FL Studio does not allow for native use of VST instruments, however FL Studio does have a built-in VST wrapper which allows for the inclusion of third-party VST instruments. Because of the use of this wrapper, Xpand!2 can open and be used in FL Studio, however the V Mini controller will not automatically map to the various functions in Xpand!2.
To load Xpand!2 in FL Studio and then manually MIDI map various controls on the V Mini controller to Xpand!2, follow the steps suggested belows:
32-bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\VstPlugins\
64-bit: C:\Program Files\vstplugins
(AU): Macintosh HD > Library > Audio > Plugins > Components
(VST): Macintosh HD > Library > Audio > Plugins > VST
