Can I plug this in to my computer and control Bias that way? It would change everything for me.

Yes - it should work - but may be hard to locate in USA until Summer 2019
The Cuvave Cube Magic is very similar to the "Melo Audio ToneShifter Mega" which has been around for over a year

https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/26786-melo-audio-introduces-the-tone-shifter-mega


Melo Audio is now OEM for the Harley Benton MP-500
https://www.thomannmusic.com/harley_benton_mp_500_interface_foot_control.htm

(both are identical)

And now there is finally a readable Owners Manual

https://images.static-thomann.de/pics/atg/atgdata/document/manual/432466_c_432466_en_online.pdf

TGP have nuked the MElo ToneShifter mega thread

it never shows up in search - read it here

Would this work as a midi controller for the boss katana @Elantric ?

i was kinda hoping this could do the trick. This device does midi over usb....
USB Host to 5pin MIDI Converters


Why cant i just use a MIDI Foot controller with a USB connection?
Because all MIDI foot controllers with USB connection I know ( as well as the Boss GP-10, Fishman Tripleplay, Line6 FBV Shortboard MKII , Ampero are:

USB Client (EndPoint) Devices

The USB Bus requires One device to act as USB HOST Controller - and those are typically computers
http://electronics.stackexchange.co...-the-difference-between-a-usb-host-and-device

The USB Host Controller initiates all communication on the USB bus, the USB Endpoint Device only responds when asked by the USB Host Controller.
For Details see the specs on www.usb.org.
http://www.usb.org/developers/docs/devclass_docs/
http://www.usb.org/developers/docs/devclass_docs/




(And tell anyone you know (Marketing Manager's, etc) to study the USB Specification before they vote to omit the 5pin DIN MIDI I/O jacks from new gear just to save $2.00 cost.

Geez that's inexpensive. Even just as an additional looper that happens to offer some reverb and phase to use on a quick little keys loop .... that's a good price.

I have a Cuvave Cube Magic - the Looper is a bit useless, Tuner works , the hidden gem is the great analog preamp and OD and Distortion - if you kick on the mod FX or delay there is a brief gap of silence, but the CAB IR sim is excellent.

Not tried the USB audio

Note there is is NO ASIO Driver available - (yet)

Quick revue
I took a gamble and purchased a Cuvave Cube Sugar
Although I do see a slight difference in mine vs ONLINE PICS





Most CUVAVE - CUBE SUGAR pics show push button switches, while mine has small toggle switches

But overall its well worth the price, very smooth all analog preamp and distortion.

In the upper right corner is a "Boost" switch - when engaged this enables a preamp with a Fender voiced Treble / Bass Tone Stack controls

The OverDrive Block adds more crunch , and the Distortion Block adds a higher gain solo boost -- very subtle difference with switch in the slightly smoother "Candy" position vs the harder edged "Salt" position

The Phaser / Chorus block is digital and there is a slight delay / mute gap in the sound when kicking this block on or off - but I was able to get decent leslie type tones with their independent LFOs and Level controls

Then Delay / Reverb block is also digital has many good sounding delays and a better reverb than Katana

The Cab IR Block is very versatile and does allow user to load third party cab IR files over USB - it has many good cab sims already built in and I found a nice range of usable Cabs - many reminded my of early Peter Green / Fleetwood mac tones


That leaves the Looper block which is best to place a spare cap over the Looper switch to avoid stepping accidentally on it at live gigs - its the definition of "user hostile control" and never the same twice - luckily you can dial the Looper volume full counter clockwise and not be hampered by its randomness.

Its supposed to work as a USB Audio interface, and there is an external FX Loop between the analog drive sections and the digital Modulation / delay/reverb / cab IR / Looper sections.

the Tuner was very accurate too - its a bargain at $129
