What to do if my Loupedeck can’t connect?

Connectivity issues include situations when connected device is either completely blank and / or the HOME button is temporarily lit and / or there are Loupedeck logos on the touch screen for a couple of seconds, before the device goes blank again.


Are there any lights on the device?


  • Use a different USB port, or USB hub.

  • Connect the device directly to the computer if possible.

  • Try connecting Loupedeck with another USB cable (any USB 2.0 or higher cable, no longer than 5 meters).

  • If possible, try connecting Loupedeck to another computer that also has Loupedeck software installed.


  • Please check that Loupedeck software is running.

  • If Loupedeck software is already running, please restart the software while having the device connected.

  • If Loupedeck software restart does not help, restart your computer while having Loupedeck device connected.

  • Connect the device to a different USB port, or USB hub

  • If using any VPN software, switch it off to see if it is causing this behaviour (this can be the case with devices running older firmware versions).

  • Temporarily turn off your firewall or any antivirus software to see if it is causing this behaviour.

  • Software conflict: If you have any other software running that could potentially interfere with Loupedeck (other custom keyboard or MIDI software), try turning off these devices/applications to see if they're causing a conflict.
