Hello
How To connect an USB controller (as M-Audio Axiom 49 if you don't have a Midi Cable) ?
Axiom and Streichfett have both square USB connectors ... a CABLE USB B-B MALE is the right cable ?

Thanks

Hi, the USB standard describes hosts and devices. And the Streichfett and all controller I can think of are devices. This is why they use the USB standard B plugs. A USB B-B cable would not work at all.
A PC or Mac is a host and got a USB standard type A plug. The same one as found on the outlet of the Streichfett power supply you use if there is no host to power the Streichfett.
So the connection you are trying to do is impossible. Use a PC or Mac as host for the controller and the Streichfett and route the date generated by the controller via some software to the Streichfett.
Or use MIDI.

Well yes, i did reach the same conclusion last week end and routed my USB controller thru my mac.
But i still don't understand the choice to turn that expander (that's a box that produces sound right ?) in a USB device ..
Ok, to power it ... A USB host and a stand alone power would have been a better choice no ?
Anyway, thanks for your answer :)
