We always answer questions, but Frequently Asked Questions are directly answered, so that you don't need to wait a few days.
Yes, the only limit is the number of USB ports, which is easy to overcome by using a USB hub.
When configuring the device through the configuration program, only one adapter can be connected.
If you are not satisfied with the adapter, you can return it within one month after the purchase date to get a full refund. The cost of return shipping is borne by the customer.
MIDI adapters are covered by a one-year warranty. If the device fails during this period, it will be replaced free of charge.
Yes. Adapters are class compliant MIDI-USB devices, so they will work with Linux.
Any that support MIDI automation, e.g.:
They do not require batteries.
They do not introduce noticeable latency.
All standard expression pedals with a stereo jack output.
Yes, we support Pitch Bend Change MIDI message.
If you just want to increase the pitch and not decrease it, set the min. value at 64, max. at 127, and if you just want to decrease, change the value range to 0-63.
For some actions you need to use CC, which is also supported.
In this case, use the "Calibrate" function available in the configuration tool. You can calibrate your pedal there and it will work properly.
All single switches with a mono jack output and double switches with a stereo jack output.
All standard pedals with a mono jack output.
Yes, this is the "impulse" mode which reacts to the change of the state.
Yes, but you must have two separate adapters - we do not provide a cable that connects two mono jacks to one stereo.
We plan to release it at the end of this year.
First of all, you will not encounter the typical machine-like nature of a step sequencer.
You will be programming drums using proven methods taken from coding (fully visual), not from a piano keyboard.

Virtually any, even your singing. It is important to remember about a few guidelines:
You only need a jack-jack cable!
You do not need an expensive audio interface because you are not recording a direct guitar signal. A2M only needs to recognize the pitch, and the sound is generated by a virtual instrument - from the sampler or synthesizer.
The more the sound will be devoid of high harmonics, the more accurately its pitch will be recognised, so it is best to set the guitar on the pickup closest to the neck, and avoid the pickup closest to the bridge.
To avoid feedback, try to make sure that the MIDI sound does not return to the audio input. This can be done in two ways: by connecting the instrument to the line input, rather than via a microphone, or if it is impossible and you need to use a microphone - listen to the sounds from the MIDI instruments on headphones.
No. It allows you to use thousands of excellent virtual instruments, which are available in both free and paid packages. You can use a synthesizer or sampler from a VST/AU plug-in.
Virtual A2M works with any MIDI receiver.
The most optimal setup is a VST/AU Host, which receives MIDI events, and a plug-in connected to it - the VST instrument. Each DAW is a VST Host and receives MIDI messages.
Ableton Live, Logic Pro X, Pro Tools, FL Studio, Cubase, Studio One, Reason, GarageBand
If you do not see the application you want to connect to in the OUTPUT MIDI device list, it means that the application does not have a built-in MIDI receiver and you need a virtual MIDI bus. This is a common problem in Windows and even leading music software companies have to face it. A good solution can be found here:
Using virtual MIDI buses.
We, like Ableton, recommend loopMIDI.
MacOS has built-in utilities, but sometimes a virtual bus is not enabled by default - you can also read about how to turn it on in the article above.
If you experience latency, please check the following:
