How do I get my akai mpk mini mk3 to work with the pads on a vst instrument?

The controllers knobs and joystick are mapped to the vst but my pads just play a series of (chromatic) notes. How do I get it so the pads play the pads shown in the vst window?

Right click on a pad on the screen, select Learn Trigger Note, then press the pad on your Akai.

Ok that works, but it also means that the corresponding note on the piano also triggers the chord. Is there any way around that or no? Thanks.

It does? Because for me it doesn’t.

Yep. Lmk if you figure it out and thank you. :slight_smile:
