I made this video in response to a question I received about how to setup the Akai MPD32 USB/MIDI control serface in Propellerhead Reason on a PC running Windows.

I'm using Propellerhead Reason 6.5 and I walk through, step-by-step, how to setup the MPD32 and use the pad controller to trigger sounds in Reason devices like the NN-XT Advanced Sampler and the ReDrum Drum Programmer. This is not a comprhensive tutorial about using the AKai MPD32 to sample flip, but it is enough to get you started with the device setup so you can start making your music better.

Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud etc. and I'll see you there! =)

Thank you for your support.

Grace and Peace!
