Having MPK mini midi controller but cant make him work with any plugin... Cakewalk sees him, its selected as midi input in preferences, but i can't use him a s controller in any plugin (only computer keyboard works, but i don't want to play piano that way :P)

Any idea why i'm having this issue?

Do you have more than one USB port?   You could try different ports (on some PC's the USB version supported is different on different ports).

The black and white keys on the MPK should play MIDI  notes by default in your virtual instrument plugin, if you have selected the MPK as the MIDI input for that respective virtual instrument track, and enabled MIDI echo "on" for that track. The joystick should also be plug and play for MIDI pitch bend and modulation.

For control surface functions the controller knobs  will need be mapped by setting up a control surface in Cakewalk, or by using a MIDI learn function  for MIDI CC controllers from within each plugin.

Not sure about the pads, they might be configurable to send MIDI notes or MIDI CC controllers. You can use the MPK editor software to assign a MIDI message to each pad, based on the plugin you plan to trigger with them.
