Cable/setup for new "USB MIDI Host functionality"

0

The newsletter contains the following
"With the right cable or adapter, firmware 3.0 lets you connect a USB MIDI controller directly to the Deluge's USB port, with no computer or hub needed. The Deluge will provide power to the connected device so long as the Deluge itself is receiving DC power."

1) DC power as in only via the 2nd power plug which accepts 9-12V?
2) Are you aware of special cables which would allow connecting the Deluge to both a midi controller and a computer for midi in/out
3) Will it work with hubs? If yes, I assume, a powered hub would be required?
4) Will attached controllers get CC for visual feedback in real time? Useful when connecting a Midi Fighter Twister per example

    1. Yes.
    2. You'll need to get a USB Male A to Female B adaptor (should cost a buck or so from any electronics store)
      3/4. We're not discussing full functionality yet. The video/post was a 'tease'. Stay tuned for more information about what it does in the near future.

    This is very interesting! Maybe there is a little chance to connect/power a USB midi device AND additionally charge the Deluge via USB (I’m thinking about a USB splitter y-cable)?

    While we are mucking around changing the front panel, would it be feasible to change the USB from a Female B to a USB-C?

    I would like to know if it's safe to power the deluge and the USB midi device from the same USB power source (power bank) or do I need to cut the +5V from the USB Male A to Female B adaptor?
