Cross DJ 3.3.11: Pre-mapped MIDI controller empty

Hi! :)
I have a Cross DJ 3.3.11 license and would like to use it with the timecode vinyls that I already have but adding a controller.
So I have to buy an economic controller and I would like to take one of those that are already on the list of checks pre-mapped inside the software.
A friend of mine gave me the Akai LPD8 controller which is on the list of pre-mapped controllers and I tried to connect it.
Cross DJ recognized him and showed him as "on-line" state.
The problem, however, is that pressing the pads and moving the knobs did not happen anything and did not get any command to Cross DJ.
So I went to check the mapping and I realized that it is empty: no command is associated in every row.
I also found other empty ones such as the Novation Dicer and Twich controllers, the Numark 4Track-FX controller, the Pioneer DJM-2000 controller, etc.
Why are these mappings empty?
Do I have to update the Cross DJ software to get the right maps?
I ask you this because I'm afraid of buying a controller that is not compatible with the software.
I know that with Cross DJ you can map every type of controller but I'm not able to do it and therefore I was thinking of buying one already pre-mapped and working.
Alternatively, I could buy the Stanton SCS.3d controller or the Numark Mixtrack Platinum or Numark Mixtrack Pro or Numark Mixtrack Quad or Native Instruments Kontrol X1.
Do you know which of these already works well with Cross DJ without doing special mappings?
However, I would love to buy and be able to make the Akai LPD8 controller work.
Please help me ...
Thanks so much.

Hi ZagaDj,

I can see that you are a registered Cross user so you should be able to update to the latest version, 3.4.3 here:

The mapping files shouldn't be empty if they are there in Cross so perhaps updating will replace the files and fix the issue.

Also here is a link to all natively mapped hardware for Cross/Cross DJ:

The ones that are blue contain links to the PDF explaining how the controller is mapped and any steps needed to get it working.

Let me know if you run into the same or any other issues.
