Reason
This preset supports the Reason Remote protocol with supplied
codec files. To use Reason with the Remote protocol, you will
need to install the supplied Reason codec files. Each module in
Reason will automatically map itself to the MPK49’s controllers.
This is extremely powerful as it allows you to use a single
MPK49 preset to control all of the modules in Reason. See
“Using the MPK49 with Propellerheads Reason” section for
information on installing the Reason Remote codecs and
mappings

USING THE MPK49 WITH REASON
Reason is a software program that allows for vast control of its parameters. The
problem with having a lot of controllable items is the limit of physical space and the
cost of building hardware controllers that can accommodate hundreds or thousands
of controllers. The people at Propellerheads have developed a way to remap a single
control surface to each of the modules in Reason. This protocol is called Reason
Remote.
We have included all the files necessary to enable Reason to find the MPK49 and map its controls to whatever module
you have selected in the sequencer.
To begin using the MPK49 with Reason, you will need to make sure that you have version 3.0.5 or greater for the Mac or
version 3.0.4 or later for the PC. Please note that the MPK49 is also compatible with Reason 4.
1. To install the Reason Remote codecs and remote maps, run the Reason Remote installer for your particular
computer and it will auto-install the folders into the right locations.
2. After you have installed the Reason Remote codecs, select Preset number 2 – “Reason” – on your MPK49.
Press the [VALUE] dial to load the preset.
!
If you have edited MPK49’s presets and are unable to load the Reason preset, use the supplied Vyzex
Editor to load the Factory Preset Bank and “PUT” or download the factory preset bank into the MPK49.
3. Start up Reason and the software will automatically find the
MPK49 controller. Within Reason, click on [Preferences]
and look under [Control Surfaces and Keyboards]. You
should see the Akai MPK49 icon with a green check mark.
If it is not checked, click the “Use with Reason” button.
The Vyzex Editor included on the CD is a great way to customize or restore presets to their factory condition!
The MPK49 preset for Reason makes use of pad banks A, B and C for playing notes. With these three pad banks you get
a 3-octave range of pitch control.
Pad bank D is configured to be used as a control bank. This pad bank allows you to use the pads as switches for certain
features.
The mapped parameters are shown in the graphic above.
EXAMPLE:
ƒ
When you are controlling Redrum or Matrix, pads D1-D4 correspond to the Bank A, B, C, D buttons in the pattern
section. Pads D9-12 will allow you to select between patterns 1-4 and pads D5-8 allow you to select between
patterns 5-8.
ƒ
In modules that allow you to select the “Previous” or “Next” preset, you can use switch S15 for “Previous Preset”
and switch S14 for “Next Preset”.
ƒ
Switches S7 and S8 are always assigned to target the next or previous sequence track. This allows you to
remotely select which module you are controlling.
The next few pages feature a full table of the mapping functions. Please refer to this table for information on how the
MPK49 controls map to each individual module in Reason. You can always change how controllers are mapped by
modifying the “MPK49.remotemap” file. This will allow you to customize how Reason and your MPK49 work.

USING THE MPK49 WITH ARTURIA SYNTHS
We have made a template file for most of the popular Arturia synths that all work in conjunction
with the Arturia Preset on the MPK49. Each Arturia synth has its own MIDI Map file that will
automatically assign the functions within that synth. This file is named controlMIDI.
Each synth’s controlMIDI file needs to be copied to the following folder so that the mapping will work. Be aware that
writing over the existing controlMIDI file will change any custom MIDI learn mappings you have made.

USING THE MPK49 WITH BFD
BFD is the premiere software drum module, featuring high-quality drum samples for realistic
drum performance. BFD can be used as a standalone computer application, or as a VST
instrument which can be dropped into your favorite host environment.
We have included a default MIDI map for BFD which gives you access to all the major features
of the software.
The MPK49 comes with a preset which is already set up to work with BFD.
1. To use the FxpanBFD preset you will need to copy the Akai_MPK49_BFD.bfc file from the CD to your BFD
folder on your hard drive. This BFD folder has all of your FILLS, GROOVES, KEYMAPS, KITS etc. You will find
a file labeled default.bfc – place the Akai_MPK49_BFD.bfc file at this same directory level.
2. To load this MIDI CC map file, start BFD and click on the HIT OPTIONS icon on the middle right of the BFD
screen.
a. This will open a dialog box that has PAGE1, PAGE2, ADVANCED and MIDI CC's options.
b. Click on the MIDI CC's tab.
c.
Now to the left of the PAGE 1 option, click on the LOAD MIDI CC ASSIGNMENTS icon.
d. Choose the Akai_MPK49_BFD.bfc file and BFD will now be mapped to correspond to the FxPanBFD
preset on the MPK49.
3. To load the preset in the MPK49, press the [PRESET] button and use the [VALUE] dial to select preset number 7
– “FxPanBFD”. Press the [VALUE] dial to load the preset.
!
If you have edited MPK49’s presets and are unable to load BFD, use the
supplied Vyzex Editor to load the Factory Preset Bank and “PUT” or download
the factory preset bank into the MPK49.
NOTE: If you want this MIDI CC file to be the default MIDI CC map on BFD, rename the file default.bfc and it will
automatically load every time.

USING THE MPK49 WITH FXPANSION GURU
Fxpansion’s Guru software is a very flexible and creative tool for making all kinds of beats and grooves.
Guru comes preset with default MIDI note and controller note mappings that serve a bunch of different purposes.
Notes can be set to trigger sounds, map a sound chromatically and play it from a keyboard, trigger different patterns and
trigger different scenes.
There are 8 MIDI controllers that are set up for using with the individual voice engines called Pad Groups, and 8 more that
are setup to be used with any of the the FX Group.
Reference the Guru manual to see how to assign these functions to the different parameters.
We have supplied a preset that makes use of the most used functions of Guru. This preset is meant to be used with GURU’s GENERIC
CONTROLLER map in the OPTIONS menu.
KEYBOARD – The keyboard is set to trigger pads from middle C up 16 notes. The default is set to control ENGINE 1 on MIDI Channel 1. By
editing the keyboard MIDI channel, you can select which voice engine you are controlling. We set middle C to be the pads so that if you have
“Pattern keys play selected pad chromatically” in the OPTIONS/MIDI page, you will then hear the currently selected pad played chromatically
on the bottom two octaves of the keyboard. If you press the OCTAVE UP button twice, the drum pads will play on the lowest 16 notes of the
keyboard and the notes from middle C up will trigger different SCENES.
TRANSPORT Controls – GURU makes use of MMC for its transport controls. If you have the latest version of Guru it will automatically make
use of MMC messages. GURU makes use of the << REW command and assigns it to the COMMIT function and the >> FF command and
assigns it to the UNDO function.
MIDI Controllers – We have created 3 different options for continuous controller mapping with GURU. Since the MIDI controllers are color
coded in Guru we will call them as follows:
Red = 1
Orange = 2
Yellow = 3
Green = 4
Lt Blue = 5
Blue = 6
Purple = 7
Grey = 8
Controller Bank A
Knobs 1- 8 - Pad Group 1-8
Sliders 1- 8 - FX Group 1-8
Switches 1- 4 – Pad Group 5-8
Switches 5-8 – FX Group 5-8
Controller Bank B
(Knobs and Sliders in Controller Bank B are reversed from Controller Bank A)

Sliders 1- 8 - Pad Group 1-8
Switches 1- 4 – Pad Group 5-8
Switches 5-8 – FX Group 5-8

(Knobs and sliders are split so that you get 4 knobs and 4 sliders for each Group.)
Knobs 1- 4 - Pad Group 1-4
Knobs 5- 8 - FX Group 1-4
Sliders 1- 4 - Pad Group 1-4
Sliders 5- 8 - FX Group 5-8
Switches 1- 4 – Pad Group 5-8
Switches 5-8 – FX Group 5-8
PADS – We have purposely left the pad mapping to be chromatic. The pads can be customized for so many uses in Guru that we didn’t want to
make them too specialized. Currently the 12 pads in bank A and Pads 1-4 in bank B will normally play the Guru pads. We left these set to the
COMMON channel so that you could quickly change them to different voice engines by changing the COMMON channel in the GLOBAL menu.
But depending on how you are using Guru you may want to change the pad note and channel mappings. For instance:
Recording patterns - you may want to leave the way they are. This will allow you to play your drum sounds and allow you to shift engines via
changing the Common channel.
Playing Live – you may want to assign the pads to different MIDI channels and notes so as to trigger SCENES or PATTERNS in a real0time DJ
style work flow.

USING THE MPK49 WITH ARKAOS VJ
Arkaos is a visual effects program that allows you to trigger video, still and flash clips from a
MIDI source. This program is and other VJ applications are actually very well suited for using
the MPK49.
This preset is not specific to Arkaos but is designed to allow you to quickly customize your Arkaos presets.
Keyboard – The keyboard is set to the COMMON MIDI channel and has a range from C1 – to C5 on Arkaos. The keyboard is well
suited for momentarily triggering video clips or effects. You can use the keyboards ARPEGGIATOR and LATCH function to
automatically have it cycle through a range of clips.
Pads – The pads have been programmed to be latched or toggled on and off. This allows you to assign backgrounds, overlay clips or fx
that will run until you hit the pad a second time to turn it off. You can use the NOTE REPEAT function to retrigger your video at timed
intervals. By playing with the GATE TIME on NOTE REPEAT you can set how long the note stays on before retriggering. By setting a
short GATE TIME the clip or effect will flash on and then off quickly. With a long GATE TIME of 99, the note off and note on are very
close so it looks like the clip is looping.
Controllers – the controllers are set from 1 – 72. They are numbered left to right, top to bottom. i.e. Controller Bank A Knobs 1-8 are =
MIDI CC 1-8, the sliders are 9-16, the switches are 17-24.
The MPK49 makes a great VJ controller. Dig in and discover the possibilities.
