So far I used the GR-1 stand-alone, with just a MIDI keyboard connected to the DIN MIDI IN.
Now I am wondering what I would need for recording and playing back MIDI
using a DAW on the PC/Mac (e.g. Ableton Live)?
The release notes for 2.4.0 say that "Most knobs now send CC's via USB MIDI".
So it seems that recording MIDI on the PC should be possible.
But how do I connect the GR-1 to my PC?
The manual suggests using the iConnectivity Mio2 that supports USB MIDI "Host-to-Host".
But it seems that the Mio2 has been discontinued and is out of stock everywhere I looked.
Are there other interfaces that have the same functionality?
I have a Focusrite interface (Scarlett 18i8) with DIN MIDI IN/OUT. Would it be possible to connect the GR-1
to that interface (using a USB-to-DIN MIDI adapter - such as the M-Audio USB Uno or the Swissonic MidiConnect 2)
and then route the MIDI data through the Focusrite? Or would that not work?
