    Lightbulb Fix: MIDI Fighter Utility 2.85 not detecting the MIDI Fighter Twister on german MacOS

    The problem

    MIDI Fighter Utility 2.85 keeps showing "NO MIDIFIGHTER DETECTED" for a second and reconnects in a loop.

    The program looks for USB-MIDI device names containing the text "Midi Fighter", "MF PRO", "Midifighter" or "USB MIDI". On german MacOS Mojave 10.14.6 a newly attached MIDI Fighter Twister 4 will be named "USB-MIDI-Gerät":

    The fix

    Simply open the MacOS-Utility "Audio-MIDI-Setup.app", click on "Window > MIDI-Studio", detach the MIDI Fighter Twister USB cable, then double-click the device "USB-MIDI-Gerät" and rename it to "USB MIDI-Gerät" (remove the first dash).

    A bit more advanced fix

    Alternatively, you could patch the MIDI Fighter Utility binary in a Hex-Editor to match the strings:

    Before: (Midi Fighter)|(MF PRO)|(Midifighter)|(USB-MIDI)
    After : (Midi Fighter)|(MF PRO)|(Midifighter)|(USB MIDI)


    Feel free to contact me, if you would like to have a patched version.

    @DJTechTools: It would be great if you could add the string "USB MIDI" to your detection regex.
