The front USB slot...

As im stuck here without midi-cable, trying to get my Linnstrument connected directly to the EFM just with one USB-cable...

Is there a way to use the from USB connector same duty as the back USB?
Maybe that would be a nice feature, if possible in the future..
Most USB-MIDI devices will work through the front USB port.
Check in Global > MIDI > USB Host if the Linnstrument is detected, try pressing the "Detect Device" button to see if that makes it work.
FYI the Linnstrument works fine for me in the front port. I had to slow down its messages when connected over USB, though, or the Essence got confused. See the section “Hidden setting: USB MIDI Data Reduction” in the Linnstrument manual.
