I'm trying to make a small synthesizer with a Pi Zero, I2C OLED hat, and a Novation LaunchPad Midi Keyboard.
Here's the setup:
As you can see, the keyboard powers up fine. However, it's not at all picked up by the Pi - and the keyboard boot animation loops.
lsusb, aconnect, dmesg all show nothing connected.
Is this an unavoidable issue with the male-micro to female-USB cable setup I have, or something software side?
