Tutorial for VIP with MPK249

I have the VIP software set up. I can see in the settings that the mpk249 is the active input. When I press the keys on the keyboard panel, I hear sounds. When I press the keys on the mpk249, I hear nothing. What do I need to do in order to hear sounds when I press the keys on the mpk249?

  • Hey Sean,

    Thanks for posting!

    Sorry to hear that you are having trouble. It looks like the issue may be that you selected too many MIDI protocols. MACKIE is different than general MIDI and not compatible with the MPK.

    Under Active MIDI Inputs only select MPK249 and deselect MIDIIN2, MIDIIN3, and MIDIIN4. Set the MACKIE Control I/O to none. Make those changes and you should be good to go!

    Let me know if you have any trouble.
