And I did check the blocked extensions. That was the first thing I had to resolve. However, during re-installation (as I had to do more than several times already), I was never asked to allow the extension again. I don't know if that makes a difference.
DDJ-1000 Audio Issues
Just got my DDJ-1000 a couple days ago and I've been struggling to produce sound into my headphones from the controller, or from my laptop.
I am running the newest release of Rekordbox (6.0) as well as the newest firmware update for the DDJ-1000. I am on MacOS Catalina. Drivers were installed beforehand, and the controller is able to read the driver as it no longer says "No Audio Driver" like it did before. Rekordbox is able to display a response from anything I adjust, but there is no sound at all. I can even see the song itself peaking on the controller, so the response is definitely there, just no actual audio signal.
I've tried all of Pulse's suggestions...none of it worked. I even tried to set up an entire new configuration; my laptop still reads the device but to no avail. Does anybody else have any other suggestions?

Where is it you have no sound? Out the master? Headphones?
Upon fidgeting around with the settings, I was able to finally get some sound out of my laptop and eventually through the Master 2, however still no sound through my headphones which was the initial problem. I know I must be missing some type of switch or something because everything seems to be working fine.
Another question I had was: Does the individual channel fader solely handle output levels as they are being played? Do I always have to set the fader to max (10) in order to achieve any sound?
I want to make sure that you're using the DDJ properly and understand the cueing...
With a song playing on deck 1, adjust the TRIM knob so audio levels are peaking at the first orange LED on the CH1 meter. Take the channel fader to the top, and adjust the MASTER level so that the audio is peaking at the same point.
Press the CUE button above the CH1 fader and adjust the headphone mix knob to the 12 o'clock position. Turn up the headphone volume and you should hear that track in the headphones.
Press the CUE button above CH1 again to turn it off, and press the CUE button above the BEAT FX display, you should now hear the master audio in the headphones.
Play a song on deck 2, adjust the TRIM knob so audio levels are peaking at the first orange LED on the CH2 meter. Press the CUE button above the CH2 fader, you should now hear the master and CH2.
Adjust the mix between the two by turning the headphones mix knob between CUE and MASTER.
Does it work as expected?
And no, you don't need to have the channel fader at 10 to hear any sound unless you have the fader curve type set to Exponential, in which case, it would be fairly quiet until around the 7 mark.
