Default Using Ample Bass Lite ll with Reaper

I have downloaded and installed the Ample bass lite plugin into reaper and it shows up in the list of available plugins. I cannot record with it however. It appears I have to use my synth software, then after recording remove the synth and add the ample plugin as an effect in order to use it. I get a signal to the daw but it will not record. I think it is because I cannot figure out a way to use my midi controller with the bass plugin. I have to play the plugins virtual keyboard to get sound. Any thoughts
Thanks Rich

1) make sure your controller and the plug are on the same MIDI channel. I know, I know, BUT, that's caught me out before!

2) Make sure you're playing within a valid key range. IIRC (this is from memory, I'm on the road at the moment), the lowest note that this plug will respond to is E3, so if your controller is outputting in the C0 range, the plug won't fire.

3) Make sure the track is set to record, has record monitor enabled, and is also set for MIDI input from your controller.

After checking and confirming that everything was set up properly I still could not record with Ample Bass II lite. I had to use a bass synth sound, record the midi track than change the plugin to Ample bass. I do not see anyway to connect the controller to Ample bass directly like I do with Arturia Lab 3 synth.
