Question about Propellerhead Reason Adapted
I am trying to sync my MPK to reason adapted for digidesign and it will not autodetect. I have tried to download the driver from akai, and now that i've done that, Reason Adapted shows the option for my midi device in the preferences menu, but it still doesnt autodetect, or manually detect

It is possible that your PC is too slow, but there may
(of course) be other causes
I have experienced a situation with Adobe Audition, causing
recording drop-outs when my PC got too busy.
To test this theory:
1) Shut down all unnecessary applications.
2) Go to the command prompt and disable the internet:
type: IPCONFIG /release.
to restart it later, reboot the machine or type:
3) Go to the task manager and stop all unnecessary
press: control-alt-del at the same time and then
choose the "processes" tab
right click on each process you don't need
and stop the process
4) You should be able to reduce the number of processes
into the low 20's, but you need to keep the following:
a) Your midi application (Reason etc) of course
svchost.exe (all of them)
system idle process
5) Now go into the control panel --> administrative tools ->
services and stop all unneeded services
(the system will not let you stop anything essential)
6) Don't worry about stopping tasks and services,
they will all restart to normal when you reboot the
7) Go back into the task manager and right-click your
midi-application. Increase its priority to HIGH,
but NOT real time, because this may cause windows
8) If your midi acquisition improves, then speed is the problem,
otherwise, look elsewhere:
a) re-install audio and midi drivers
b) make sure the mixer and control applets are correctly
configured, i.e make sure the midi is not muted.
e) make sure the midi application is allocated the
max amount of memory, if it has a setting for it.
9) I am assuming that you are running Windows XP.
If your PC is too slow do NOT use Vista !!!!,
which makes things much worse, at least
by a factor of 4 to 1
Do not install XP service pack 3 either,
its bloated with anti-piracy **** and DRM.
10) Finally, for audio work, I would recommend
a minimum system with:
a) Pentium III 800 MHz or better yet a Pentium IV
at 1.5 GHz or faster.
b) One Gbyte of RAM to make sure your machine is not
disk bound. This is much more important than a fast
Disk is approx. 10 million times slower than RAM,
so this can become a very significant bottle neck.
c) Windows XP pro, SP2 (not 3)
d) Depending on your video card, i.e. the amount of
workload it handles for the CPU, you may also reduce
the screen resolution, and disable desktop effects
to speed thing up.
Adobe audition, for example will perform more reliably
on slower CPU's when the GUI window is kept small
in waveform or spectrum display during recording.
P.S. I use Adobe Audition for most of my recording and
audio processing. System = Core 2 Duo /2.4 Ghz,
4 Gigs of RAM (only 3 Gigs are accessible from 32 bit
windows XP), 1300 Mhz front side bus, 3.5 Terra Bytes
of hard disk, of which 1.5 Terabytes are configured as
Speed and storage is no longer an issue :)
not even for HD video processing.

SOURCE: Reasons won't record midi data
You have to check were the problems is, with exclude way.
1. you first find out if your "master keyboard" really works: Try to run another program where you can run the the keyboard(you can use a trial and the uninstall it after)
2. if that works then it is another place not the keyboard, then it can bee the program / sound card / configuration . you can find the reason manual here :
Check if the configuration to the midi keyboard is ok.
FOR THE SOUND CARD: be sure that you do not have anything else that can interrupt the sound card. Shut down other recorders and other software that use the sound card and bee sure that you use the same sound card configuration (normally it is realtec the default)
If nothing happens please go to the support here for Reason software :
Hope that helps
Have a nice weekend
