Rats, still no luck with the 201.
Tried a couple different apps to send via USB and via MIDI.
Seems I have a dead MCU.
Next up I am going to try and source the MCU part and do a rework.
Gotta exhaust all possibility before I convert it to the Cadillac of wah pedals.

I used Elektron C6, with speed not at max, if that can help.
I think the release notes mention you should use USB only, don't they?

Yeah I tried Sysex librarian and the Elektron app.
Did USB but then I noticed it wasn't showing up in system report on the USB tree.
So I gave MIDI a shot. After I finish my current couple projects it goes on the bench and I start poking at it with a soldering iron.
I previously opened it up and confirmed good volts at all the conveniently placed test points. If only more MI gear had such test points!
Positive I never used a DC power supply by accident. The smaller connector on the Moog power connector prevents a Boss style power connection from being inserted.
I really dislike working with surface mount. So this will be a very crude exploratory attempt if it comes to that.
