FH-1 from computer?

Author FH-1 from computer?
tobey_g
I want to send MIDI from Ableton Live to my Expert Sleepers FH-1. Have I understood it correctly that I either would have to use this kind of adapter or a MIDI to USB cable from my soundcard to the FH-1 in order for that to work?

If I were to use the adapter, would I then connect a USB to USB cable from my computer to the adapter and then USB to USB cable from the adapter to the FH-1?

it’ll work. For example, iconnectmidi2+.

the first, the adapter, will work,
the second, just a usb2midi cable, won´t work !

the difference:
this adapter enables the possibility that two "hosts" can communicate with each other.
The FH-1 will *allways* act as a host !!

so you have to send the FH-1 a consumer/slave signal ( not shure on the terminology)
edit: a computer will also allways, afaik, act as a host.

Yes it will. The FH-1 is the host for the USB/DIN cable. The DIN end has no concept of host/device, as it's not USB.

That said, USB/DIN cables are best avoided. They seem to often not work very well (with anything, not just the FH-1).

Would a "USB Host To Host Link Adapter" work? (No specific mention of MIDI but should work in principle)

It might. Hard to tell from that link as I don't see any description at all.

Same product here:

“Host to Host Link Adapter for File Sharing & Data Transfer”
Looks very early-days USB, PC compatible, no word on Mac.
