Troubleshooting Midi Fighter 3D.

DJ Techtools’ awesome Midi Fighter 3D controller should work fine with Melodics in it's default setting – occasionally however, it can report a device name that is incompatible.


Rename that name

The reported device name should be “Midi Fighter 3D”, yet may appear as “Midi Fighter 3Dw” or something similar.

This issue is present in some Midi Fighter 3Ds manufactured from Nov 14th, 2015 onward. There are a few things you can try to get the MF Utility to detect the unit and reloading the device’s firmware should correct the issue. The articles below from DJ Techtools explain the process:

Note: On OSX you should head to the “Audio Midi Setup - Midi Studio” area and remove the “Midi Fighter 3dw” device before updating the device firmware.

Work through those, you should be ready to go!
