Alesis Q49 Issue


I just bought the Alesis Q49. It came with the free Ableton Live Lite disc, but no driver disc. Their website offers no downloadable drivers for this product and I've had very little luck receiving any help from their tech support. I'm using Reason 5, on Vista 64 bit, but I know it's not a problem inside of Reason because my computer won't even locate the controller, and can't locate any drivers, and google isn't coming through with any sites that have driver downloads for it. So first, is it even compatible on a 64 bit OS? And if so, what can I do to find the drivers?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You may have to go in via Traditional Midi...
I'm using a Midi to USB converter and an old Casio keyboard and Reason (5.0.1) recognizes it fine. I've even hooked up my Alesis Sr-16 and used it as a pad controller. Just tell Reason you have a generic midi controller and it should work, but I don't think you'll be able to use any features on the Q49 itself.
