If anyone is having problems using their S61 Mk1 in controlling Reason I can confirm that the information on this link works. https://keramsbookreport.com/index.php/2020/07/23/how-to-make-reason-work-with-ni-komplete-kontrol/

The only transport control that does not work is Loop, which is no big deal; although for some strange reason it is light up. (No pun intended). So RWD, FFW, PLAY, REC and STOP all work perfectly. This is great news as I was on the verge of buying another midi controller. It would be interesting if this also work on Mk2 and possibly Mk3? Onward and upwards. Anyway I hope this helps anyone else who would like to use their S Keyboard to control Reason.

    I was able to add my mkII manually as A series keyboards appear to be available in the dropdown to select keyboards in Reason 12 (although mine is actually a S Series it doesn't matter as the transport stuff is the same for A and S)

    these are the ins and outs I'm using (and Loop does work) - I believe this is using the Mackie protocol as there is no 'deep' integration like I have with Bitwig and Logic

    Sorry it has taken me so long and thanks for the above. Loop was working for me but was always illuminated. Your help has sorted that so all working perfectly.
