midi notes from drum pad wont record in sequencer
I was totally biffed out to find that Reason 6.5 is not capable off recording midi data from an alesis perc pad to the reason sequencer. Of course it will input from a midi keyboard but playing drums from a midi keyboard is not ideal for me.

The intended virtual device, say a kong or redrum, will play via midi from the perc pad but will not record the notes into the sequencer. That if find even weirder. The pad trigger lights, the pad voice plays but the green highlighting does not appear and notes will not record.

Hope this feature will be available in Reason soon, at first i thought it was a bug but after reading a few threads, i do not think its possible.

If anyone has any info or workaround please respond to link.

have you tried adding your controller under advanced --> midi?
Afterwards check that your Kong or whatever instrument you want to trigger is
routed to your midi device on the hardware interface (for instance on channel 1). I have just added a mschine mk2 that way and it works fine.

are you using the advanced MIDI device?

In the end i deleted all midi controllers and devices from the control surface menu and re entered the whole set up. All jiggy now thanks.

Advanced midi was not required as i first thought. Thanks for replies
