Hi,

I've had a problem a few times now, that the cdj's do not recognize the djay pro problem.
When I connect my traktor scratch pro 2. There seems to be no problem at all...what to do.
I have had the cdj's working more times than not, but it is irritating when it doesn't work. I did connect everything the right way.

Hi,

just came across this recently.

What cables do you use to connect the mixer with your mac? Also do I need to download any specific drivers for this to work?

The mixer, if used in external mixer mode is being connected to the CDJ's which are both connected with your Mac via 2 USB cables.

Cheers,

I have been having repeated problems with the Pioneer CDJ-2000NXS2 not connecting to djay. All other players connect directly with the drop down menu, as the tutorial linked above shows. The newer players are not giving this option. I have updated the firmware on the players, still not connecting. I can get the sound out via each player, but do not get the player to connect as the controller. Any recent help would be great.

you got the right one. First, disconect the controler and check if the wires are in write place.
second, look at you sound connection and see if the marking of the cord is on the red for you sound. Then, put the white on white hole and put the red on the red hole.

I am not asking you to use the spotify but re-opening the itunes option should help.

I tried connecting cdj's to the djay pro as per instructions and it still doesn't work. Spent 2 hours trying to figure this thing out and it's so irrtating and frustrating. But when Traktor is connected..no prob's at all.

So does this mean i have to buy a new software and loose all my cue points..that would suck big time....
