What does it mean for a device to be 'plug-and-play' or 'class-compliant'?

A class-compliant device (also known as plug-and-play) is one that doesn't require extra drivers to connect your Windows or Macintosh computer, or to your iPad. These devices use drivers which are built into the host (i.e. the computer or the iPad) operating system. If your device connects automatically to any computer without requiring you to install drivers from a website or a disk, it is probably class-compliant/plug-and-play.*

To find out if your HeadRush USB audio or MIDI device is class compliant, check the HeadRush Support Options page. For some tips on troubleshooting class-compliant/plug-and-play device troubleshooting tips, refer to this article

*Please Note: The HeadRush Pedalboard will not require drivers to transfer IRs and presets to or from your computer, but a driver is necessary for Windows when using the Pedalboard as an audio interface for recording and re-amping purposes. 

If you are reviewing this guide because your Pedalboard is not recognized as a USB audio device on your Windows computer, please make sure that you have downloaded and installed the latest driver. Download the driver below:
