BeatMaker 2 Compatibility with Akai MPC Studio Black

Unfortunately, I don't see a search option for the Discussions so, this question may have already been asked and answered but...

Can the Akai MPC Studio Black (or Silver) be used as a controller for BeatMaker 2?

Akai sorta answered the question by saying it's not compatible with a iDevice but that connecting it through a powered hub has not been tested. Needless to say, I was confused on both answers I got from them. However, the consistent answer was about powering up the MPC and not really about the MIDI controller compatibility. I would like to try this but can't spend the $400 to find out that it doesn't work. Surprisingly, I can't find any videos or forums/blogs that have tried this option.
So... any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

    Hey @NMattern !

    I have no access to a MPC Studio Black controller, but let's see.
    Is your controller listed in the MIDI settings panel (Studio pop-up > Gear Icon > MIDI Setup) ?
    If it is, then you can start using the "LEARN" function to match BM2 pads to your controller pads (and other faders, knobs, etc.).

    If it's not listed, you might want to take a look at this thread: http://intua.net/forums/discussion/4513/akai-mpk-mini-cant-be-found

    Let me know !
    Cheers,
    Mathieu.
