    Right v quick tutorial.

    Open a new project

    Press F11 (erm on a PC no idea about mac ?) or go to Devices menu at the top . Select 'instruments' and youre list of vstis (instrumetns) comes up. It will be full of 'no vst instrument'. See pic. Press the first black hole, then select the FM7.

    then go to the main editing window, right click on the dark grey bit on the left, and select new
    MIDI track. THen select out as FM7

    [​IMG]
    You can then use the FM7 as a MIDI track, use the Piano Roll editor to 'write' notes in or if you select record enable aon that track, you can use a MIDI keyboard to play the FM7.

    Hope that helps !
