    Default Running a PC controller on Mac

    OK so basically, i've gotten well into making my own little custom controller out of an old gamepad. And I've realized mid-project that the driver are only for PC. Surely, if the gamepad is sending signals to the USB port there must be someway to convert them to a more mac friendly signal?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Harry

    You most likely just need an HID to MIDI app.

    Uh, I don't think that's true. You may want to test to see if your controller works before committing.
