To connect your Strymon pedal to the Nixie software, you need a MIDI interface to connect from the MIDI IN and MIDI OUT ports of your pedal to your computer, typically through USB. There are many type of MIDI interfaces out there, but we recommend a robust MIDI interface that uses dedicated drivers to operate reliably with your computers specific operating system. We do not recommend getting a plug-and-play MIDI interface as we have seen many of those have trouble with handling the data transferred between the pedal and your computer. Two MIDI interfaces that we recommend are the Roland UM-ONE and the Yamaha UX-16.
