      In device manager or the list of midi devices in software (cubase, Sound Forge, Midi-OX…) two pedals have the same name. The mentioned programs select the pedal by coincidence. On reopen of a saved project the program opens the correct device with a chance of 1:1.
      That bugs me alot. Is there a way out of this kerfufle?

      What version of Windows do you have installed?  I'm not the best person to respond to Windows specific questions, but if I remember correctly, Windows XP has a problem with reading the names of USB Audio devices, but in later Windows operating systems the H9 appears with its serial number as its name.

      I have Windows 10 prof. 64bit with the recent updates.

      The H9 Control in Windows recognizes the pedals correctly under the given names H9-Max and H9-Core but neither the device manager nor applications which use MIDI do. They give both the same name “H9 Pedal”. And while H9 Control recognizes them via USB I wonder why the device manager doesn’t.

      If I rename them according to H9 Control they are set back after restart both to “H9 Pedal” . Cubase for example grabs the first one initialized. Depending on the order of other USB devices and their activity it is unpredictable which one will be used. Because I automate them in my DAW I need to trust in the order or an exact naming of the devices.

      H9Control knows about these pedals, so it can tell the difference. DeviceManager and other non-Eventide applications do not. Sorry.
