Reason Setup & Troubleshooting: Impact GXP

Impact GX/LX Mini & GXP Support

Here are the steps you need to follow to get Reason up and running with your Impact GXP series controller.

Installation & Setup

Impact GXP Reason integration is compatible with Reason 6 and above.

  1. If you haven‘t yet updated the firmware in your Impact GXP, complete that step first. The firmware update files are a separate download available from MY ACCOUNT on our website. With the firmware update complete, move on to the next steps.
  2. Locate the ‘Impact_GXP_Reason_support’ installer included with this package and run it.
  3. Plug-in your Impact GXP and make sure it’s switched on (if you didn’t do so already)
  4. Launch Reason and go to Edit/Preferences/Control Surfaces.
  5. Click “Auto-detect surfaces”
  6. You should now see Impact GXP appear as a control surface In Reason.
  7. Close the Reason Preferences window.

Note: ‘**’ represents 49, 61 or 88; depending on which Impact GXP series controller you are using.

Troubleshooting

Patch Changes
If you find that the [< Patch] and [Patch >] buttons don’t work when controlling a third-party plug-in, it’s likely because the plug-in uses it’s own patch browser. The Patch buttons on the Impact series control the patch navigation functions of the DAW, so you may need to save the plug-ins presets in your DAWs patch format, before you can use the Patch buttons on the Impact controller for patch navigation. You can find more information about saving patches in your DAW, in the documentation for that program.
