Using 2 Blofeld USB in Windows 10

4 months 1 week ago #1 by Aricastudio
Does anybody know how to change a USB device name so the change is also reflected in Cubase and not only in the Device Manager?
Issue: plugging two Waldorf Blofeld (usb) to the PC shows two devices named “Blofeld” and only trial and error or turning them on at different times seems to be the only way to know which is which, as they will appear in different spots in the Midi In and Midi Out tree in the Inspector.
I know how to change or create a “Friendly Name” key in the registry but that only changes the name of the devices in the Device Manager, nowhere else, not even under Windows-Start-Settings-Devices.
I know this is a Windows issue but I am sure there are others that have more than one usb instrument of the same make and model that would like a clear way to identify plugged hardware.
This is more of an issue if the devices cannot be always plugged in the same pc and port, like if using in the studio pc and then in a live laptop set up.
Thanks for any info
