Expert Sleepers has released an update for its FH-1 USB MIDI Host module that lets you use gamepads & trackballs with your modular synthesizer.
Based on an all-new USB stack, the new firmware has two key additions:
- support for USB hubs, so you can connect more than one MIDI device at the same time; and
- support for USB HID peripherals (e.g. trackballs, gamepads etc.).
The first video, above, demonstrates using the FH-1 with a gamepad. The second video, below, looks at using both a USB Hub and a trackball with a Eurorack modular:
Firmware v2.0 for the FH-1 USB MIDI Host module is available now, as a free download.
