Recently I setup an Alesis VI49 Advanced 49-Key USB/MIDI Keyboard Controller in Studio One External devices. 

There currently appears to be no selection for any type of recognition related to Alesis products to be loaded for use. 

Not sure if this is related to there being no Alesis data in S1 but, I also was unable to use the sustain pedal, and several of the transport buttons until I had reinstalled/reset all of the external settings multiple times before it would recognize this feature through by 1018C interface.

Has anyone else experienced difficulty using Alesis equipment with PreSonus gear???

Yes! Having an related but even worse issue.  

Not only are Alesis products not in the drop-down list, S1 4.6 can't see my Alesis V25 controller at all.

Tested it by trying the online DAW at Bandlab.  Fired right up: the Alesis immediately triggered notes.

I am not using Studio One, but I just bought a Quantum 2626.  My VI61 is in Device manager, shows up everywhere else, BUT, when I go to the device setup in VI Editor, the Quantum is the only available MIDI to select.  I don't know if this is a Presonus issue- like it's taking over the system and won't let anyone else's MIDI interact, or if this is a separate issue....would love any clarification anyone has!
