The Mod Duo (and Dwarf once I receive it) are absolutely looking like total saviors for my live setup. I currently have my Livid Guitar Wing, Dirtywave M8 synth/tracker and Disaster Area Designs MIDI Baby all connected to the Duo via USB (powered hub) as well as incoming MIDI via the DIN connection. It looks like this:
It all works perfectly… until it doesn’t. Occasionally, if I need to unplug/restart one of these devices connected via USB, I cannot get them to reconnect and be recognized without restarting the Duo. There are also other times when I do reconnect them just fine, but for some reason the internal routing in the Duo is not restored and I have to open the editor and route the wires again. And finally, there are times when I can disconnect and reconnect them without issue. I can’t seem to figure out what scenario differences are causing the reconnection failure vs. success. Unless I can get things to reconnect consistently (and preferably w/o a laptop), there’s no way I can risk taking the Mod Duo on stage with me.
Anyone have any advice for me to get rock solid reconnection behavior? And will the Dwarf be able to manage these connections without the web editor?
