Just want to clarify one more thing…
To have Emote talk to the H9k via midi is not an option?
Emote can only be connected via ethernet or using the WiFi dongle.
You can send MIDI from your computer/DAW to the H9k using USB or the MIDI DIN connectors, but that is not the same as connecting to Emote.
Since you are using an H9000R, you will need either an ethernet or WiFi connection from your H9k to the computer for any operation.
Thanks for clarifying.
