        Finally got my hands on a used Pitchfactor lately. I didn’t have any problems while registering, but it won’t connect with the H9 software as well as the direct updater.

      I always get the ”retrieved 0 devices”.   I’m running the latest softwares but my pitchfactor runs on 2.3.0(2).  I searched the forum for help, but can’t find anything. My Modfactor always connects witnin seconds!!!

      Any ideas?

      H9 Control's manual has some tips on trouble shooting connectivity issues.  They come at the front of the manual:

      Hi Gkellum,

       Finally got it to connect! Thank you!

      I followed the link you provided. The only thing left to try was to change computer…got no luck there!

      I then tried to pair it with midi cables to my modfactor…didn’t work?? So I tried the same with a firewire external sound card and Voilà!!

      Then while updating… ”an error occured” … pitchfactor wrote ”BAD !!” .  At this point, I had tried everything to reinstall any firmware and would never get more than 33% completed!! . The Pitchfactor couldn’t even boot. It either crashes 1 sec. after startup or I hold the middle footswitch to update mode. 

      I went back to the forum to figure this out and found that other users were having the same problems.


      After reading post #11 by Stringbot, I wanted to try on my other computer ( both running Windows 7 pro) but it is not firewire and I knew I couln’t get it to connect. So my last resort at that point was to at least try with a standard usb cable. And to my surprise, the Direct Updater detected it right away.

      I then started updating to the latest firmware no problems! It turned out that the problem was caused by my computer the whole time. The funny thing is that I don’t have any problems with my modfactor stompbox connecting to my main computer while the pitchfactor still can’t.

      In conclusion, always try it on another computer.

      I hope it helps other users!! Thanks
