Mapping vst controls to external hardware

Hi, I am trying and failing to use my beat step pro in controller mode to modify the parameters of Arturia virtual instrument in vst mode within Ableton live. No matter what I try, the mapping does not occur. It's like there is a firewall between the beat step pro and the Arturia vst virtual instrument.

I'm pretty good with Ableton midi input output settings & control of arturia hardware, but this problem has me stumped.

Is anyone out there successfully mapping an external hardware's knobs & buttons to a vst plugin inside Ableton.

If so, how are you achieving success, I would love to know.

    If your beatstep can send midi to ableton then you should be fine.

    The problem maybe comes since you want to click on the parameters on the vst window? , unfortunately in Live works diferent and you need to do some steps before you could map them .
