Hello everyone, to start off I know nothing about writing code I just copy and paste he he. Anyhoo I've got this old dj controller and the drivers are windows Xp out dated. It has this 40 pin cypress chip I'd like to replace with a 40 pin teensy and make it class compliant plug and play kinda thing. If someone could tell me if this is possible that would be cool, if someone would write out the code for me to just copy and paste I'd give you my first born child he he and give you credit every time I shared this fix with the millions of people who want a fix for this great yet worthless controller. Here's the link to the ic data sheet https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BwO_RQoX2dKmXzNzNGNURFZqZzA/preview and its for the mixman dm2 thanks a lot guys and gals

Before you even think about replacing the board on your controller i would try following options:
1) get the windows 7 driver from the guy posting here: http://dm2.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=win7&action=display&thread=406&page=2
2) run linux or XP in dual boot and be done with it. there are DM2 drivers fro both
3) write your own driver
if none of these options are appealing you will need to map out what connections you have from the physical controllers going to the main chip so you can replicate this and then write code to react to the GPIO input and convert this to MIDI. it seems very possible to do, but may not be an ideal first Teensy project.

Didn't read the complete thing by it seems like the problem is the driver is not signed and is then rejected by windows 7's Device Driver Signature Enforcement. If that is the case you can try this process http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/how-to-install-use-unsigned-drivers-in-windows-vista-7-x64.127187/
