Can’t connect

Have tried everything to get this to connect to my IPad Pro 12.5 and it just will not have it. I connect via cable and the laptop pick the iPad up instantly but it does not show as a remote within the software. Nothing shows up for wireless connectivity I have changed multiple settings to ensure the hard ware is discoverable. What appeared to be simply plug and play seems to be anything but for me. I have now contacted Serato support for some assistance. It could be something simple I am doing wrong. Any help on here would be much appreciated.

Pioneer ddjsx

This is ok. Would be better if able to play tracks so could still remotely drop a tune away from my controller. Nice touch sensitivity for the effects though. Bit pointless with ddjsx though. Should at least be abe to cue a mix. 1 star but nice idea

Its nearly There ... bit still needs some work!

Really not a bad effort at all the last release, good steps forward and generally compliments Serato DJ well.

What I would like to see included is some "out of the box" thinking - Here is a idea, why don't you include an option to "Alter the brake time or the start time" - its a ball ache to have to chop and change between menus unless you have a set of 2000s, Nexus's or DDJSZ, why don't you put a link or a "clockwise" knob somewhere in the app to access the brake function, going into the options is alot of messing around for people who want to use the controllers, there should be a better and more thought out way off accessing this menu without having to exit what your doing or assigning your own midi mapping to the functions of the brake!!

The Ipad app would be a great start, include a turner or slider to chage the value .... just an idea!
