    Fergo JoystickMIDI does not detect the very popular Steam controller, so, not every controller will work with this, which is super upsetting because a Steam controller has many features.

    All i see is stuff for Windows. Does this work for OS X??

  • all producer and engineers are simultaneous video game nerds as well lol
