    If someone is using this set up, how are you running the MPK49. Are you using the cakewalk generic controller or the ACT controller.

    Getting warmer...


    I now have a question.

    (From the above page)
    "What MIDI Controllers does ACT support out of the box?

    Out of the box, SONAR has ACT presets for some of the most popular MIDI controllers including:

    * Akai MPK49

    (Thats you?)


    A few weeks ago you had v.5...you trying to learn this software or just upgrading until you get it by shear volume? :)

    or is that sheer volume? Either way is an oxymoron, kinda like idiotsavant is an oxymoron?

    Anyway, do let me know if any of this is enough to aid in some small insignificant manner.

    Well the bad news is that I've been there done that already. All your input that is. And No I Don't want to learn the software I just like buying $*^t cause I'm bored. I figure I can try to fish out the biggest smart ass in any given forum to get answers to my own dumb ?'s and look.......YAHTZEE!!!!

    You are good.

    That being said, your defensive tone not withstanding, this post was dropping in rank and you posted again just to bump it.

    Me being an interested bystander, made much effort to get THE most current information towards this issue. I suspect your tone has nothing to do with me and more to do with your inept ability to rise to the level of the gear and software you are buying because you do not seem to be able to correct this issue on your on.

    In the future...a listed order of whatever it is that you have done in attempt to correct your problems and maybe interested people, like myself, will not have to spend time on your behalf.

    "In the future" BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH!
    Shut up, you arrogant JAG OFF!!!

    I'm glad your so smart and have no normal comminication skills. I'm glad that you feel better making me feel small to your over shadowing intelligents.
    The one thing that I don't get is why A$$ HOLES such as yourself like to beat up on beginners who are here to learn. You must be lacking in many areas of your normal life. To the point that you take it out on people that want nothing more then to try to solve a problem. It's even better for you cause you can hide behind your computer due to the realistic fact that your just a spineless PU$$Y.

    So in the future............. Go get laid, and stop Phucing with people who are trying to learn.

    I really don't understand the necessity of rudeness.

    Back on topic. Anyone manage to fully map the Keyboard in Sonar as mapped in Reason?

    I didn't either. The answer to the question "Are you using the cakewalk generic controller or the ACT controller?" was answered and supported from the Cakewalk site with this statement "SONAR has ACT presets for some of the most popular MIDI controllers including:

    * Akai MPK49 "

    Maybe this is as good a time as any to say I am going to miss Brett Favre !He is a musical genius! The way he orchestrated touchdowns was nothing short of magic.

    Space, call me a Sonar noob i didnt manage to find an ACT preset for the AKAI in sonar instead i installed as a generic control surface with the instructions i found on the link above. Maybe this is the pary where i should properly read the manual. Or better off anyone got quick instructions?

    Did Brett Favre pass away?
