I dont see a mention that it is USB class compliant, but using MIDI and USB together usually is.
If you do end up getting one, I can recommend to setup the pedal so it sends pitchbend messages instead of MIDI CC.
The MOD host supports pitchbend as MIDI learn target, which gives higher precision values compared to MIDI CC.
Regarding the Beat Bars EX2M adapter, I sent an email to ask them if it could work with the Dwarf.
Here is their response:
<< Yes, all our devices are USB-MIDI class-compliant.
The ModDwarf has a USB host port (A), so it is compatible with the adapter. >>
I can’t immediately but as soon as possible I’ll buy it to try it out.
I’ll keep you posted here!
Hi, I’m new here, got a Mod Dwarf recently and this is my first post.
I just got a Beats and Bars E&F2M adaptor (like the EX2M but with additional footswitch input) and can happily say yes, it worked, straight out of the box. I connected an expression pedal (Boss EV30) to it and into the Mod Dwarf using the USB cable supplied with the E&F2M and could immediately map the output as a MIDI controller. Mapping is smooth and responsive. Have yet to try footswitch which is on order.
By the way, as this came up before, Beats and Bars do say that their devices are USB class compliant, but it’s buried a little in the small print.
It happens to be smaller than I imagined from looking at the picture, very convenient size. I ordered it on Amazon and it arrived in the UK (from Poland) in 2 days - a day earlier than the earliest predicted delivery date. So, very happy with it (have only just got it though - will report back if any issues).
