    Hey guys!

    This should probably be in Music Production not general, but I'll go ahead and give the obligatory first response:

    What software? I assume Ableton? Ableton doesn't really attach controllers to things the way you're thinking. But to get what you want to happen, you open up the IO panel and select midi channels that match the controllers you want to use for the inputs.

    That's the easiest way other than to just not worry about it…unless you're actually playing both at the same time, which means you kind of have to do it that way.

    You can also select which midi device to listen to for a given track. So create a track with your drum rack and another with your vst. Then in the "midi from" drop down, select the mpd for the drum rack track, and the keystation for the vst track.
