[HowTo] Solving Connection Issues on MacOS


Hi Everyone,

I just got an Issue with Connecting the Sensors on MacOS by the MIDI-Setup-Tool:

When i clicked “Connect” on the already known Sensors in the Setup, it showed that establishing the Connection is in Progress, but nothing happened.

Other Devices like my iPhone worked fine, so i updated the Firmware by using the Tutorial of @Fredrik (How to update the firmware). I got the same Result - No Connection possible on MacOS.

I went over to Reboot the iMac-Device, but this also didn’t solve the Connection-Problem. After this, i looked up the System-Settings of the Bluetooth-Connections and there you go - deleting the known Freedrum-Sensors and Re-Connecting it with MacOS solved the Issue!:


That was so excellent of you to post this, and so clearly too!
I was going through the exact same grief in OSx with 3 sensors pairing perfectly, and the 4th one recognised but with the “connect” doing nothing except saying “connecting” for a few seconds before leaving the false hopes department and returning to display “connect”.

Now it’s solved. Thanks!!!
