Synapse 3 via Parallels - DPI increase

Hi all,

Recently I got as a gift the Deathadder V3 Pro.

Deathadder has been my all time favourite mouse and I remember using the first version back in high school.

I love the v3 Pro but I would like to change my dpi settings since the default programs are capped to 6400.

Now, all I want to do is setup my programs so I can max out the DPI settings.

Synapse 3 is not supported for MacOS and Deathadder V3 Pro is not supported for Synapse 2 (which has some MacOS support).

I tried installing Synapse 3 on a virtual Windows11 via Parallels but it is never reading my mouse so I can't use it.

Is there anyone out there who managed to find a workaround for this issue?

Thank you all so much

Did you've tried to enable USB device passthrough into Win11 via Pararrels?

I've tried both this options. After connecting it directly to the VM, I can use it inside but it is still not properly recognised by the system / Synapse 3 as Deathadder mouse.

It’s a virtual machine no native windows, for example like you can’t do online game on parallel needs some kind hacking to translate it which I don’t think would be easy with synapse. I couldn’t even go to login screen, all either black or white. The work around maybe if it has onboard memory, using a PC to coztumize your profile and save it.
I'm starting to hate Razer for being so much against macOS users. Firstly there's no Synapse 3 on macOS, then If you want to somehow customize their products, you have to install a virtual machine, which is already a pain in the ass to do, then you manage to install everything, you open Synapse 3 and you’re faced with the problem that it can't see your device and realize that you just wasted your time for nothing. WTF Razer...
