I had my MPD218 working fine with studio 3 and studio 4 professional. Got a new desktop and installed the studio one 5 professional.

I have now installed the AKAI MPD218 as an external device for S1 5 and it is not working. The pads are lighting up but it is not triggering anything, including Impact XT.
I initially set it up as a new keyboard but no luck. (Config image attached)

Config as a keyboard

Then I set it up as a control surface too. No luck.

Interestingly, when I look at the Midi monitor in studio One and press a pad I can see the Midi signal being received by S1 and the ID (like C1) but it does not trigger Impact XT.

I am at an end and don't know what to do. It used to work fine before....

My system:
Studio One 5 professional
HP Pavillion Gaming Desktop
Intel i7-9700F CPU @ 3.00 GHz
16 GB RAM
Windows 10 Home 674-bit

Thanks a lot for any help!!!

Does it trigger other plugins?

Hi PreAI,
Just back from trip and read your answer. I followed your suggestion and found that I could trigger my Serum plugin and then the lights came on and I realized my mistake. I did not have my monitor button on in S1!!!! So I could see the midi signals but of course there was no sound at all. I feel really stupid for wasting your time and spending over two hours trying to fix the 'problem'. Some days your brain just doesn't want to work....

Thanks a lot for your help!!! Testing another plugin was the hint to realize my mistake.
