You are correct and I am aware the pedal can be configured using the onboard buttons. Perhaps I should have stated it’s much harder than just using the h9 app. I’m not a big fan of the button setup and personally would rather not use them.
However, as far as I’m aware I cannot adjust my midi functions using just the pedal. I’m not sure how to set limits on my expression pedal without the app either. Another annoyance, which made me get a Bluetooth adapter for my pc, is the fact I cannot use my midi pedal while having it connected to my pc using usb.
That being said, I enjoy the pedal and all the cool effects I can get out of it. Being able to adjust it from my Android tablet would make it perfect in my book.
