    For Ableton Plug ins, you have to add them as an Ableton install.

    Live 9: Installing and managing Live Packs – Ableton

    For regular VSTs, just install your plug ins to that folder.

    If you purchased the suite, you log in and download the packs. Your account when you log in will let you know what packs you have as a part of the suite.

    Plug ins are separate from the Ableton packs. When you look at the structure of Ableton, you see Browse, then categories: Drums, Instruments, Audio Effects, MIDI, Max for Live. When you expand those, these are the Ableton Packs.

    When you install third party VST or VSTi's they will be in the plugin folder. To find where that is:

    Open Live's preferences by pressing [ctrl][,] on your keyboard.
    Navigate to the File/Folder tab.
    Under "Plug-In Sources" please select the folder, where the VST plug-in DLLs have been installed to.

    Not sure, but I think Ableton only allows one folder/directory. So when you install your plug in, make sure it installs the dll to that folder. It will usually ask where the plug in folder is. Once you have in stalled, rescan in Ableton, it should pick it up.

    Once again, Ableton packs are installed by clicking on the ALP file. Then it gets put into once of Ableton's categories.

    Hope this helps.

    In Ableton, they are not plugins, they are expansion packs since they really integrate into the system.

    As a part of the base suite:

    - Comes with 34 x studio-quality effects, including the Amp classic guitar amp simulator, the Cabinet guitar cabinet emulator, and the Corpus acoustic resonance modeler
    - 10 x powerhouse virtual instruments include Analog, Collision, Electric, Operator, Sampler, Tension, and more
    - Bundled with a complete version of Cycling 74's Max for Live programming platform so you can make your own instruments and effects
    - 13 x included Max for Live devices make creating your own tools fun and easy
    - VST and Audio Unit support lets you use all of your favorite plug-ins and virtual instruments
    - Bundled with 25 x amazing content filled sound expansion packs
    - Includes 7 x powerful MIDI effects such as a flexible arpeggiator and a chord generator

    That should give you a idea of what you have.
