TaurusBeats shows how to setup the Akai MPD32 MIDI Controller to work in Propellerhead Reason on a Windows-based PC.
Question from a subscriber:
hey man i jus wanted to let u know, ur music is a great inspiration to me. i have the same setup as u with reason 4 and the MPD32, except i have a keystation 49 instead of the oxygen. i noticed that in one of ur vids u used the mpd transport buttons to play the song, mine dont work like that and i cant figure out why. if u have any solutions to help out that would be great and much appreciated!!
I get a lot of questions about the MPD32 hookup to Reason. Thing is, all I did was plug mine in and started playing with it. I didn't make any settings. Is your MPD set to the Reason preset (#2)?
If that's all good, I suggest you try uninstalling/re-installing the MPD32 drivers on your computer. From the questions I'm getting, people are having problems because they use the MPD with another software besides Reason. If you're doing the same thing, it may be possible that the settings from the other program are conflicting in some way.
Grace and peace!
