Akai MPK25 type controllers - 2 instruments at once?

Howdy partners.

I have an Akai MPK25 MIDI keyboard controller. What I need to achieve with it using Reason 6.5 is to have a piano sound playing on the keys while drum sounds play on the MPC style pads. Is this possible?

Right now whatever instrument is selected plays on both keys and pads, so I get either drums on everything or piano on everything. Is it a case of MIDI mapping or loading individual samples?

Ideally I would like to be able to change banks using the controller for both drums and keys - maybe as a combinator?

Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks!
