Sometime in the last three weeks, my MacBook Pro stopped recognizing the DDJ-1000 as an audio device. It does not appear at all in the audio device settings. The computer does recognize the DDJ-1000 as a MIDI controller. When I connect to the DDJ-1000, I am able to control Rekordbox DJ on my laptop using the controller, but all sound comes from the laptop speakers, not the master/booth outs. My computer is able to output to different audio devices, such as my Traktor S5 controller and a Scarlett USB audio interface.
I am running a 2016 15-inch MacBook Pro, Intel, with macOS Big Sur 11.4. I am running the DDJ firmware version 112_MAC64. I am running the latest audio driver for DDJ-1000/Big Sur (M_3.0.0).
I have followed the troubleshooting steps laid out in this thread, to no avail. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled the most up to date DDJ-1000 drivers, and firmware, according to Pioneer's directions several times now. I have used the `
sudo kextcache --clear-staging` command before doing so. I have reinstalled MacOS Big Sur. (I do not see encounter security authorization messages in the system privacy settings when I reinstall the software, I presume because I have previously allowed the software to run.)
The only thing I haven't tried is reinstalling rekordbox itself. I believe I'm using version 5.4 or something, because I need it to support RekordCloud, and Pioneer has yet to fix the bug blocking RekordCloud from working with Rekordbox 6 or the most recent versions of 5. But, I suspect the issue is not with Rekordbox anyway because it seems more of a system level issue - the mac should recognize the controller as an audio device even when Rekordbox isn't involved.
Thank you for your help.
