    Default Kontrol 1 - Reason - MIDI issue...please help

    hello everyone...

    I just got myself a NI Kontrol 1 audio interface

    I have an older version of the Oxygen 8.

    I'm trying to use both with Reason 4.0.

    I have my MIDI cable out of the keyboard/usb out going to the Kontrol 1 MIDI in, and in Reason it is set up to use the Kontrol 1 as the audio device.

    But i cannot get Reason to find or see the Oxygen 8 for me to control its devices.

    What am i doing wrong?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Dennis

    are you using OSX Leopard by any chance?

    edit: are your drivers for the oxygen 8 up to date?

    If you are running the mIDI through the keyboard of the Kontrol 1 then you need the MIDI In from the Kontrol 1 to be the MIDI device.

    If you use the Oxygen through USB power then it'll work as the MIDI device
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    Default just said fuhgettaboudit...

    I called a few friends i knew who are midi geeks, and we couldn't do any troubleshooting that actually worked.

    The only thing that we could really think is that the midi ports on the back of my oxygen 8 are bad.

    We went through a couple of different settings, and really i just said forget it...

    i unplugged my mouse which was using up an extra usb port and just ran the keyboard into that usb...

    just sux cus now i only have my track pad on my laptop to navigate around with...i will miss my mouse!

    oh well..would rather deal with the track pad and have a working keyboard than not!

    thanks again for your guys input!

    Well, really, all you should need to do is plug the MIDI out of the keyboard into the MIDI In of the Kontrol 1 and make sure it's plugged in. If you have an express card slot you can get more USB ports, also.
