I just bought Djay Pro 2 for Mac but for my surprise it didn't recognize my Casio XW-J1 controller. My controller it's on the list of the supported devices for Mac but I've tried everything and nothing works. Please help me. Thanks!

Hi Gabriel,

Thank you for your post.

I am sorry to hear that you are facing this issue. Does the controller light up when you connect him?

Also could you please download this midi monitor application and check if the controller is sending midi signals:

Hi Lukas, thank you for replying me.

Yes, the controller light up when I connect it to my macbook. I've downloaded midi monitor application but it not shows anything, so I think my controller it's not sending any midi signals.

I just forgot to tell you my controller works perfectly with Djay Pro app for IOS and I use it with my Iphone and Ipad, so I really don't know what's wrong. I just want to make it work. Do you have another idea to solve my problem?

Thank you again!

Hi Gabriel,

I see. How are you connecting your iOS device and how are you connecting the controller to your Mac?

Cheers,

My controller has an integrated dock cable so I’m connecting my IOS device via dock cable with lighting adapter for Ipad Mini and Iphone 7. For the Mac I’m connecting the controller via USB terminal.

Here is the manual of Casio XW-J1.

You can see in the photos that I’m connecting the controller via usb cable, but nothing happens.
