My control surface is not on the Remote Supported Control Surfaces list, can I still use it with Reason?

Note: Support for unlisted control surface models may be available for download from the Propellerheads website - check this first!

If you can't find your control surface listed on the Manufacturer or Model pop-up menus when you try to add it, this means that there's no native support for that model. However, the program supports generic keyboards and controllers. Here's what to do:

Select "Other" on the Manufacturer pop-up menu and then select one of
the three options on the Model pop-up menu.

Or if the Manufacturer is listed but not your specific model, select one of the three "Other" options on the Model pop-up menu. In both cases, the options are:

Basic MIDI Keyboard
Select this is you have a MIDI keyboard without programmable knobs, buttons or faders. This is used for playing only (including performance controllers such as pitch bend, mod wheel, etc.) - you cannot adjust Reason device parameters with this type of control surface.

MIDI Controller
Select this if you have a MIDI controller with programmable knobs, buttons or faders (but without keyboard).
You need to set up your control surface so that the controllers send the correct MIDI CC messages, depending on which Reason device you want to control, check out the MIDI Implementation Chart in the Reason Documentation folder. If your control surface has templates or presets for different Reason 2.5 devices, these can be used.

MIDI Keyboard with Controls
Select this is you have a MIDI keyboard with programmable knobs, buttons or faders. Again, you need to set your controllers to send the right MIDI CCs.
