To Install And Use Presets:
Drop the entire folder called 'Mouth Play' (NOT the folder called 'Mouth Play v.x.x.x') into the folder called 'ableton/user library/presets/instruments/max instrument'. This is found in the 'Places' section in Live's browser or in your finder/file browser. If you are going through finder (mac) the Ableton folder is typically in your 'Music' folder. If you are going through your file browser (windows) it is typically in the 'My Music' folder. Presets are best accessed through this folder as well because they are a mix of instrument rack and device-only presets.
