How do i get max for live midi to record in abelton?

    The clips are the first thing in the track. Then there's your device, then your soft synth. It won't record into a clip because the clip is before your device. What you need to do is move the soft synth to another track, and route the MIDI from the first track (with your device) to the new track. Then the clips in the new track will be downstream from your device, and the output can be recorded.
