Vetta 2 Midi connection
by AJScott on 2012-08-03 10:31:02

Hey guys, ive got a Vetta 2 HD head. I want to connect it to my PC so I can update the software on it. I have a MIDI to USB cable and Im connecting to my PC, when I run Line 6 monkey it's telling me nothing can be found however I can still perform the update. However doing so will erase my user banks, so I want to back them up. I go to the save option on my amp and choose ""Send MIDI dump of user bank?" So to back it up. I'm assuming this transfers it to my PC, I select this option and nothing happens. I cannot find a file called "SysEx" on my PC.

Any help would be appreciated.

You'll need software on your computer to capture the MIDI dump.  Something like MIDI-OX or similar.  You could (and probably should) download Line 6 Edit and use that to save your patches too.

Also make sure you use the USB midi cable that Line 6 recommends ( http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/Uno.html) otherwise from all the chatter here it seems you'll just have problems. Ya gotta download and install their latest driver for it and your system too.

Then use Edit etc. to save your patches and do the Monkey upgrade thing.

Hey guys

I downloaded Line 6 Edit, and I cannot configure my head to work with it. I'm connecting my USB cable to my PC and then midi cables to the amp and it will not find it/recognise it. When I put in the USB cable for the first time it installed drivers with no errors, and i've swapped around the "In/Out" in which the MIDI cables connect to the amp. What else could be wrong?

What interface are you using.  If it's not the m-audio Uno then you'll be wasting your time.  There are very few MIDI/USB interfaces that will work correctly due to buffering.

I'm not sure, I believe it is just a generic MIDI to USB cable I bought off of Amazon for a couple of pounds. I wasn't aware I needed an actual interface? It's just goes PC > USB to midi lead > Amp

As has been said, just get the M-Audio and your problems will likely go away. It isn't that costly so you're not really saving anything by trying to make the other one work, instead you're probably wasting your own time and frustration.

I've found that If getting something accomplished means burying a dead cat in the backyard under the light of a full moon, then by all means just do it unless there is some other objective in mind.
