Want to talk about music hardware or software that doesn't include Reason?

Nice, I'm glad that you've got quite a few things going already. I'll still have to see how well the S88-MK2 fares with Reason and possibly optimise its integration as well.

Yeah! I think I have everything working now. I'm just polishing a couple of things and I'll release it with some instructions.

I think it should also work with the mk2 but I don't have one to test anymore.

I just realized I can't edit the first post... but here goes the first version anyway.

How to use it

There are two separate codecs. You have to add both of them manually and select the DAW device for both. You'll get a warning telling you that they are using the same device... but it's ok! The script is designed to be used like this and I haven't found a way to remove the warning.

IMPORTANT: To be able to control the mixer you have to lock the mixer device to the Master Section:

After doing that everything should work pretty much like in the other DAWs that have official DAW integration. With some small differences that are specific to the way Reason works:

- The directional encoder changes between the sequencer TRACKS
- The keyboard's mixer view shows MIXER CHANNELS not TRACKS
- If the current TRACK name matches the MIXER CHANNEL name it will be highlighted in the keyboard's mixer view.

Reason Codecs - NI Kontrol S-Series MK3.zip

And I think that's all. Hit me up if you have any questions!
PS: I'm waiting for NI to add the midi templates so I can add mappings for all the devices.
