I just bought an Akai MPK mini MK3 and downloaded everything and followed the videos, but when I hit my pads they don't always light up in MPC Beats and when they do light up no sound is played. I also tried it in Reaper, my main DAW I've been using for 1.5 years now, and the drum pads work for like 2 minutes before the sound also just stops. I have everything set up the way I've seen multiple videos tell me to and I've read a lot of other people's problems and I can't seem to figure it out. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but if I can't get help with this I'm just gonna return it and give up on MIDI keyboards and just stick with my 66 key keyboard since that's the only thing I can figure out how to work.
