Hello everyone. I currently use a Pod HD Desktop and love it, but this post isn't exactly about such. I enjoy its features but am saddened by the lack of midi inputs, virtual or physical and was wondering if I could rig it up to one of the Fbv boards (most likely the express). My intention would to use a daw to send midi signals to the fbv, then have that switch between patches in my Pod as necessary for my live show. I know the mkii fbv boards have a single midi input, so I was wondering if it could be used this way or not. 
Essentially, if you don't understand what I'm trying to accomplish, the guy in this video is doing the same thing, just using physical midi output from a computer interface into a physical midi input on his pod. I would be doing the same, except Daw's midi tracks > Fbv > Pod. Is this possible? Thanks in advance ^_^

No, the FBV cannot be used that way, with Spider Control, the FBV can send MIDI signals to a MIDI device or software, but its the software doing it.

Ah, gotcha. Do you know of any other possible method I could use to facilitate this kind of automatic patch switching? Or will I have to just buy a shortboard and do it manually?

No, the board won't use the usb and the rj45 at the same time, with the exception of updates.

making what you are asking impossible.

Okay, I understand this part, but would there be any other device or method I could use for this or would I just be better up saving for a pod with midi i/o and selling the desktop pod?
