Default AKAI LPK25 won't open as MIDI

I have recently bought an AKAI LPK25 USB MIDI keyboard. Unfortunately I cannot get it to work with Reaper 5. Can someone please talk me through what I need to do from installation as I am obviously missing something.

If you go to Options/Preferences/Audio/MIDI Devices can you see your keyboard there? If so, make sure the input is enabled as well as input for control messages.

What exactly are you trying to accomplish ?

To record the Midi notes you need to check if the keyboard is "enabled" in Options/Preferences/Audio/MIDI Devices ("Enable Control" not necessary) , and you will find it in the track's "Input Midi" selection list.

To hear what you are plying you need to add a virtual instrument in the track FX chain and "enable Monitor" in the track.

To control Reaper functions by controls on the keyboard you need to activate "Enable Control".
