Tutorial for setting up a keyboard in Reason

Postby coojuice on Sat May 12, 2007 11:11 pm

I like many others had bother setting up my keyboard to work in Reason 3 so I thought i'd post this little tutorial to help out.


For this tutorial I have connected my M-Audio Oxygen V2 Midi Keyboard to my computer.



Once you have your Midi Keyboard connected to your computer open up Reason 3.

Once open select "Edit" then "Preferences" from the options at the top of the screen.

One in the preferences menu, select "Control Surfaces and Keyboards"

Image

Click on the "Auto-detect Surfaces" button to detect the midi device you have connected to your computer.

Once your device shows up tick the "Use with Reason" box for this device.

*If your device cannot be found click on the "Add" button to manually add your device*

Whilst still in the preferences menu select "Advanced MIDI"

Image

In the "Bus A" box select your device.

Once you have done this, close the preferences box.

In the hardware interface you should now see your device when the "Bus A" button is highlighted.


Image

In the "Channel 1" box select what you would like to use the keyboard with. For this tutorial I have selected the NN-XT Digital sampler.



That's it folks you should now be able to use your keyboard!

If anyone would like to make further comments or note's on it please feel free to do so.

What do you mean by this? Are you meaning using another midi input other than a keyboard?

If so I think it's the same idea but you would have to double check that with someone.

why go into the advanced midi section for using a midi controller in Reason. Its not needed infact the advanced midi portion of the program is used when using hardware sequencers for example a mpc to sequence Reason. You cannot sequence hardware with Reason however you can sequence Reason on hardware which is what the advanced midi tab is all about.

I've no idea what that means m8!

I only put up this tutorial to explain how I set up my keyboard in Reason 3 so that anyone else who had the same trouble could use it as a guide.

Ayo Reason is a great program especially when you're using a midi controller. Anyone knows how to re-wire Reason to Ableton?
