I got the transport functions and all the knobs to work fine. The keys however are not working with cubase5. Everything is working great with Ableton Live 7 and Protools 7.4cs. When I press a key, I can see MIDI activity. And before you tell me turn MIDI thru on, Let me tell you it's on. I upgraded the firmware to 1.0.5. Loaded the preset files that I got from Akai Pro. Can't figure this out.

Hi there My first reaction is to disconnect the power supply for 5 minutes (often works wonders) With the power on again look for the function knobs on the TV itself. They are usually down in the right hand corner on the front. They have the same function as the knobs on the remote. Give it a try. Good luck Kolbrun
In cubase go to "Devices", there select "Device Setup", in the Device
Setup windows go to "VST Audio System", on the top right you will see
the "ASIO Driver" drop down menu, click it and select your sound card
from the list. Also take a look into VST Connections.
The problem is that card has only UNBALANCED inputs. You really need balanced or first run the mixer outputs through a DI backwards. Frankly, I would recommend NOT using a card within the PC as there is so much digital noise. Use either a USB or Firewire external convertor and for goodness sakes use balanced lines from teh Mackie... ALL interconnected equipment needs to be powered from the same receptacle or source. M Audio, Roland/Cakewalk and Presonus all make cards as do others.
You could look in the manual on Page 5 for connections to external equipment...
Connect a USB cable from your computer to the MPK49. The unit will be powered through the USB connection. Alternatively, if you do not wish to use a computer in your setup or if you wish
to power the MPK49 externally, please plug in a 6V-1A DC power adapter.
2. If you would like to use an external sound module, connect a 5-pin MIDI cable from the MIDI OUT of the MPK49 to the MIDI IN of the external device.
3. If you would like to use another MIDI controller in your setup, connect a 5-pin MIDI cable from the MIDI OUT of the controller to the MIDI IN of the MPK49.
On Page 13 the first of the FAQ's is:
Question: Does the MPK49 have internal sounds?
Answer: No. The MPK49 is a MIDI-controller, which means that it does not contain any sounds inside but is instead used
to control external sound devices, such as hardware and software synthesizers, sequencers and drum machines.
