Sorry to hear about the recent issues you have been experiencing.

The basics: 

You will also need to create a New Control Surface in Options/Preferences(OSX) > External Devices. This is the one that is needed to map controls. 

In the end you will have; 

1. A New Keyboard for your pads.

2. A New Control Surface for the controls

3. Control Link your controls: 

For the settings on your Akai, you will need to contact Akai for any particular settings to use with Studio One. 

We also encourage you to create a thread about this on the Presonus user forum. This will allow for back and forth discussions about an issue or question and more points of view as to possible different approaches or workflows.
