How to Daisy Chain MIDI Devices?

I want to Re-wire Reason into Live 8. I use Korg microKontrol key board for musical input. So far everything is OK.

But, I installed an AKAI APC 40 via USB and now Reason won't receive MIDI from the micorKontrol key board because the MIDI port is being used by the APC 40.

This is beyond me. Is there a way to use the APC 40 without disabling the microKontrol?

Please help.

    Have you tried assigning separate midi channels for both controllers?

    I have an APC40, Korg PadKONTROL and a keyboard.

    Would anyone be kind enough to explain how to chain midi devices? I am surprised that this question has gone unanswered as it is so fundamental! Hopefully someone can help - thx :)
