I need help with MIDI set up, please!

So, I have an M-Audio Midisport 2x2 MIDI to USB converter, along with 2 MIDI keyboards. Whenever I try to hook it up to reason, I'm able to get it linked just fine, and Reason can detect it, but whenever I press any of the buttons on the keyboard it doesn't play any of the sounds from the synthesizers/samplers/drums inside Reason.

It's simple--it's just not easy, if that makes sense. I believe you can only select one keyboard at a time, for starters. Check in Preferences to make sure you have the correct keyboard. Then the instrument you want to control has to be selected in the Sequencer.

I've done those things. I know it sounds simple, and I know it is simple. But It isn't working. When I click "Find" to test the sound, and I hit the keys, it doesn't play anything inside the software. I have my friend sitting right next to me who was able to connect it into FL Studio with no problems at all, so I don't think it's the hardware's fault. There must be something I'm not doing right.
