    HX Stomp MIDI controller (IOS)

    Note to moderators: Please move this thread to the "promote your patches" section if needed Updated to version 1.2 !! - Bi-directional MIDI support (now it receives MIDI from your HX Stomp) - Better overall design (pics updated on the first post)
  2. That's it! Still way cheaper that buying any external MIDI controller (specially if you already own an iPad, of course), and it adds many goodies such as wireless and tactile control, a kind of big Head-Up-Display, it can used with HD Edit simultaneously, makes you look even more cool over the stage... a completely new way to use your Helix for such small amount of money! And you are supporting a currently unemployed guy at the same time, something that should represent a good amount of good karma increase for anyone interested ;-)
  3. Now online!: https://gum.co/HelixMidiController This is a premium MIDI template made for the Line 6 Helix devices. Hardware and software requirements: - Line 6 Helix (Floor, Rack, LT) - Apple iPad - MIDI Interface (Wireless: Yamaha MD-BT01. Wired: Roland UM-ONE MKII + Apple CCK USB3 read here for some suggestions) - MIDI Designer PRO 2 (IOS app, sold separately) Early notes: V1.0 is online!! PDF manual coming soon. Lifetime support, future updates will be free for existing costumers. A bit of tech stuff: The operation of this MIDI template is based on the current MIDI implementation available on Line 6 Helix devices. This means that the limits of what or how can be controlled are determined by the manufacturer (to a large extent). The practical translation of this fact is that: There are some functions in the Helix that are not controllable, simply because there is no continuous controller (CC) assigned to whatever. There are some things in the Helix that receive MIDI but they do not send it. A clear example are the footswitches (FS). For this reason, it is not possible to show a synchronized status (on/off) on the controller's screen. For this type of controls, it will only be possible to send a status change message, so the buttons will be of a momentary type. Helix does not send the names of presets or setlists via MIDI -something that would normally use SYSEX messages or the Line 6's own protocol (but we will be able to write and store those names on the controller anyway). Description: 1-Main Screen. From this screen you can control the main functions of your Helix. Some elements receives the MIDI information that your Helix sends and display it on the screen, such as bank and program changes. Others are used to send commands to activate and deactivate elements such as footswitches. A few elements are bi-directional, such as looper controls (for the most part). As you already know, the Helix does not send us setlists names. However, you will be able to rename your Setlists on the controller easily from this screen, simply by pressing the "Setlist" button to write names coincident with those of your Helix. 2-Setlist Screen The main function of this screen is to navigate comfortably between the eight banks of your Helix, but we can also select a preset in each of the 8 banks, and toggle between them at the touch of a button. There are also controls that receive information from your Helix, like those two large screens of Setlist and Preset. The most important looper controls are also present here. For advanced users: the setlist names are also editable! So you can manually write the patches names on your controller to match your Helix. 3- Preset Screen On this screen, the idea is to have quick and immediate access to all the Presets (and Setlists) of your Helix. Snapshot selection controls are also present, as well as the looper, tap tempo and tuner buttons. 4- Favourites Screen Easy access to your 48 favorites, just pushing labeled buttons. A good way to sort your most used presets, regardless of where the hell(ix) they are found. If you need more buttons, you can even duplicate this screen to double the amount available!

    Hi, d0dtenning! Thank you for your support, really appreciated! So, were you finally able to load the file from dropbox or iCloud? Personal note: I really need to document some procedures like this, to make things easier.

    Recommended MIDI interfaces Wireless: Yamaha MD-BT01 Wired: Roland UM-ONE MKII + Apple CCK USB3 Note that wireless and wired connections can be used at the same time, so you can connect to your iPad wirelessly while having a wired connection with your laptop. So using HX Stomp MIDI controller and HX Edit simultaneously is not only possible, but very practical!

    There is no need for that at all, sir, you can take my word. However, if there is no reason for you to take my word for it, nobody cares! you will see the reality for yourself.

    The Yamaha MD-BT01 works for the most part (CCs, PCs, MIDI notes), but it corrupts SYSEX badly. But you dont need SYSEX at all for the entine Helix line, so...

    My issue was solved with a firmware reinstall, using the lastest updater. Line 6 (Frank) arranged a replacement for me, and then I received a phone call from Yamaha Spain, but I was happy to say it was no longer necessary. Great support! Happy costumer. Make sure you use the lastest updater, download the firmware update file first, and connect the Stomp straight to your main USB ports (do not use hubs or the front case USB ports)

    Another multieffects unit to challenge helix?

    After reading the manual.... I think its probably a mix of POD HD500 + some other devices (EHX, Boss, etc ) stolen code, all packed in that Helix-BossGT1 reminiscent box. So Mooer has finally found the way to effectively hack and vampirize other companies code and merge all them in a single device!! GE300 is a frankenstein device. Born dead, if they forget to remove the original copyright notices again. It has high chances of never getting to hit the shelves

    Opened a ticket here at Line 6. Wrote to my store, asking for a replacement, by they only offers a "repair" (bought my Stomp 19 days ago, I should have been quicker to return it) I hope that Line 6 can offer a better solution.
