My controller is listed as "USB MIDI Device" instead of its name - Mac

This is a common issue in Mac (see Arturia’s and Keith McMillen’s posts) and it is easily solved:

  1. Unplug the controller from the computer.
  2. Open Audio MIDI Setup (located in /Applications/Utilities).
  3. Look in the MIDI window. If the MIDI window is not visible, go up to the Window menu up top and select “Show MIDI Window”.
  4. Look for the device named “USB MIDI Device” and click it. You may need to scroll to the right to find it — the window doesn’t appear like it should scroll, but it does.
  5. Delete the device by pressing the Delete key on your keyboard.
  6. Plug the controller back into the computer. A new device should appear in Audio MIDI Setup with the proper name you chose for it.

Good luck!
