I have a pretty simple goal. I'd like to connect a small knobs/faders controller like the Korg nanoKONTROL2 to the Reface DX so that I can control some of its parameters using external knobs.
Is this possible? The issue is that most of these small controllers only have USB out, not 5-pin MIDI. I've heard that because the Reface DX doesn't function as a USB host then plugging in a USB MIDI controller won't do anything. Would this require a USB-to-MIDI converter in the middle then?
