Can Conduit operate as a USB host?

The USB-C port on Conduit is used for connecting to a host computer for use as a MIDI interface on that system.  It does not support the connection of any other device to use Conduit as a USB host.  Third party pedals that can only communicate with MIDI via their own USB port cannot be connected to Conduit’s USB-C port.  These pedals would need to be connected directly to a USB host device or computer.
