How do I get Maschine Groups/Instruments to be playable on my new A61 Keyboard?

I just added the A61 to my NI setup with Maschine. For some reason, when I load an instrument up into a Group, it will not play across the A61 keys. It only plays one note, C2. On the A61, I have learned the Shift>Key Mode function, but that doesn't do the trick, it only turns on/off that one C2 note playability. I've gone through the Channel settings in every which way I can think to and still cannot get it to function.

In Maschine Preferences, I do have all the right checkboxes checked for controllers, the Maschine and KK A61.

Please help, somebody. I will pay someone to walk me through what I'm doing wrong, gladly. Otherwise, I will return this A61 while I can. It's that frustrating. I got the A61, mainly so I can learn to actually play keys better and this nonsense makes it all pointless.

Thanks, and Happy Easter weekend!

    It depends on which instrument you loading. For instance loading Gentlemen should play the entire keyboard but loading complex instruments like Session guitarist - the keyboard is mapped into 1) Articulation 2)Endings 3) patterns etc, then a playable part.

    Also only kits can be loaded to a group. you need to load. instruments into a sound within a group

    that's my 2 cents and hope it helps
