DWARF Audio Interface

I would like to understand how I have to connect the DWARF to use it as an audio interface to record with my DAW (Logic Pro X)

This is under super experimental feature preview.
Details at Audio Through USB - MOD Wiki

It is not enabled yet because:

  1. Needs work and testing to verify and get it as stable as possible. For now, we just expose the feature but didn’t do any specialized work on it
  2. Needs a proper way to enable and disable, likely will follow similar steps on how you enable the net+midi mode in v1.10
  3. Depending on how things go, it might need some options for tweaking (in case we are not able to find a way to make it work 100% of the time, and some setups needing tweaks)
  4. We are pondering making a custom Windows driver (outsourcing to a company that does these sorta things, we get a verified/signed driver at the end). It is unclear if this is a requirement or not right now

So feel free to try it and mess around with it, but don’t expect it to work.
That said, most of the time it does work. We just can’t make any promises because we didn’t dedicate proper time to this yet, it is not an official feature just yet.


Honestly, I don’t feel like doing things I don’t know how to do. I hope someday I can connect the Dwarf to my MacBook Pro and record. My goal is to record pure guitar and edit the sounds from the DWARF in order to have the same sound Live used in the studio. Especially being able to change the sound while listening to the mix. Anyway, thanks for replying.


That is planned to be implemented for future OS releases. So it’s a matter of time for you to get it.


hi, i was trying to follow instructions, i was able to connect via ssh and so on, but in my host, i was not getting anything…and after reboot of the dwarf, i was not able to connect to the device anymore until i performed manual os downgrade and update with tgz files …afterwards, i was able to ssh again, but still no luck with net jack. :frowning: after all i notices there is experimental section in settings, i turned it on…but what to set on the host system? windows, or linux, no matter…i use both…but …still doesnt work… :frowning:

dont use netjack, just create the special file to activate the audio stuff.
but anyway, not an officially supported feature yet, might even be broken now not sure

When i activated that file, i was not able to connect via browser… before
but, if this succeed…i will automatically hear the sound? or any additional step on the computer needed?

You use windows? for Windows there is an extra step, the wiki explains it.

In this experimental feature 2 new IO appear on each side of the pedalboard.

Its working :slight_smile: Thanks for this! I will experiment with this in the coming wek. Might save me carrying my audio interface with me :slight_smile:

Sorry to undig this thread.
Has any plug n play solution been implemented?
I’d like to use the Dwarf as audio interface with my Mac, but I admit the Audio through USB wiki page is chinese to me.

Hey @Cyril no, the Audio through USB is still at the stage of the wiki tutorial and not yet officially supported.
I believe that there were some small stability updates, but I’m not 100% that. @falkTX may be able to give you a more informed answer.

1.13 series has some tweaks to make the usb audio stuff more stable, but it is not yet in a state where we are comfortable putting it out as official feature.
