Hi there,

I bought an Akai MPK25, I downloaded all teh drivers and remote files but it still doesn't appear in the Akai devices list in the Midi settings.
I cannot use the Reason Profile on my Akai MPK25, so I have to map everything manually which is quite long.

Does anyone know the solution ?

Where has it installed the remote files and codec?

If it doesn't automatically get recognised, select akai mpk25 from the add controller dialog. If you've installed the codecs and maps correctly, it should show up in the controllers list.
Btw you also need to use the Reason preset on mpk25.

I've some to expect Reason will not be able to automatically detect or map my hardware devices. Most all my devices wind up in Reason as "<Other> MIDI Control Keyboard". That said everything does work. It just doesn't get detected or mapped automatically.
