Akai MPK mini - Remote codec & remotemap HERE

Picked up one of these recently, was distressed by the lack of proper MIDI support in Reason, so I've created a Codec and Map for this. Details here:

Hope this is useful to someone.

A thousand thank yous, meowsqueak. I have an MPK Mini and looking to get an MPK49. Props should add these instruments to the list. I've always loved Akai, but there's always seemed to be a disconnect on codecs.

Kind Regards, Kenfen

@kenfen The MPK49 actually has a preset for Reason that aligns itself pretty well with Reason right out of the box. I am using one now in Reason and I would highly recommend it.

I agree, I also have an MPK49 (see my site for my review and my pad mod instructions) and it works very well with Reason, out-of-the-box. It was only the MPK mini that seemed to lack proper support - only too happy to share my "unofficial" Remote files

I'm glad this thread came up. I've been considering getting an MPK Mini and I would have never known about the issues.

I haven't written a review on mine yet, but I must say (once you've got a Remote codec working, for example my one, not aware of any others) it works as well as I would expect. The keys have a reasonable feel, the pads feel fine, there have been complaints about the knobs but they seem fine to me also. I think, for what it costs, it's a great little portable MIDI controller. The only thing I'd wish for is a pitch bend wheel, but I'm going to see what I can do in that area with TouchOSC and my iPhone...

Also, if you're not adverse to hacking the .remotemap file, you can set it up to control whatever you want. You can also change the way the pads work in CC or Prog mode if you feel inclined to hack the .luacodec file - it's really not that hard, my version only took me two evenings and most of that was figuring out the initial support.

Just FWIW, when I get time, I intend to add Record 1.5 support and take a look at the Reason 6 situation this weekend.
