    Have you checked with the manufacturer if there are any software or firmware updates?



  • It shows up in the "pro manager app from" Enttec and it shows up in QLC+ It uses FTDI drivers and i have installed the newest on from fetidchip.com... Its only in Isadora i can't "see" it in the serial port setup...

    Just tried it on 10.12.6 with DMX USB Pro and Isadora 2.6.1 and it works for me:



  • @xlrstik 

    ftdi published two different drivers for there usb serial chipset

    VCP D2XX


    for Isadora your Operating System need to use the VCP Driver for the attached Device, only then it will show up in serial devices

    Apps like QLC+ con use both the more hardware specific D2XX and the general serial VCP driver

    to make it more complicated Apple started to publish there own AppleFTDI drivers a couple of years ago, but with limited functions

    to toggle between both ftdi drivers you can use the terminal or this tool
