Below are details on connecting each kind of Strymon pedal to Strymon Update.
In order to connect your pedal to Strymon Update, you must use a robust MIDI to USB interface with developed drivers for your computer’s specific operating system version.
We recommend using our own Strymon Conduit MIDI interface. Some third party MIDI Interfaces that will work with our products are the Roland UM-ONE or Yamaha UX-16.
Make sure to connect the MIDI OUT from your interface to the MIDI IN port of your Strymon pedal and the MIDI IN from the MIDI interface to the MIDI OUT port on your Strymon pedal, as shown in this illustration.
Compadre, Riverside, and Sunset all have internal USB-micro connections. To access them, simply remove the four screws on the bottom of the pedal, and connect to the USB port on the right side of the pedal. Please note that you need to use a USB-micro cable with data transfer capability. USB-micro cables with charging only capability will not work for updating.
Strymon Eurorack modules can be updated via a USB-mini jack on the back of the modules.
