Fader Doesn't Turn On - Recent Macs and USB-C

If you try plugging a USB-C fader directly into a recent Mac USB-C port, your fader may not do anything (except look pretty). I'm still investigating why, but I suspect because recent Mac USB-C ports are really Thunderbolt 4, there is some kind of incompatibility.

Fortunately, it's an easy fix: use a powered hub.

With a powered hub you can use a USB-C to USB-C cable, or a USB-A to USB-C cable no problem.

I will update this page with additional support when and as issues come up. If you are having any other issues, don't hesitate to reach out to me and I'll respond usually within a few hours.
