Yes it works and yes it needs USB.
I attached the pedals just as badmelonfarmer suggested. Followed the instructions 🙂
I now use my little Digitech 3-button pedal for AUX SW functions going out on CC and I use the main Space switches for banking up and down i.e. < ACT, BK+ and BK- > because a Space already has BK+ and BK-). The MIDI controller also works so that means CC access into the nether reaches…
Thanks again to Jerome and BMF for all their help!
