  1. Updated to 3.02.0, all good.
  2. CHEAT SHEETS 1- Main View 2- Setlist View 3- Presets View 4- BlueBoard View
  3. HELIX Wireless MIDI Controller (iPad) has been updated to version 1.1 !! 1- Main View 2- Setlist View 3- Presets View 4- BlueBoard View
  4. There is a new Firmware 3.9.0 for our BeatBuddys! BeatBuddy Firmware 3.9.0 “MIDI Optimizations and Bug Exterminations” I'm using mine with the BeatBuddy MIDI Sync cable and a Yamaha MD-BT01 or a CME WIDI Master. And don't miss my MIDI Layout made with MIDI Designer Pro: https://gumroad.com/l/MBqkH It will be updated soon for the new firmware, if needed.
  5. Then the Pirate MIDI Bridge 6/4 are your best option, specially if you can wait a few months. The upcoming Helix 3.10 Firmware may have some MIDI implementation improvements, too.
  6. Seems like you're describing an HX Effects. It works pretty well just as a Controller, and it doubles as a DSP extension, if needed. If you already have an iPad, you may consider using it as a MIDI Controller. I have made two different controllers for the Floor/LT/Rack. 1- Icon G-Board for Helix Devices: New 2021 release. Made to work with an iCon GBoard, including synced LEDs. This same Layout also works as a standalone controller. And the GBoard doubles as a Mackie MIDI Controller when used with a OS X computer running Logic Pro. 2- Helix Wireless MIDI controller: This one is about to be updated (probably next week). It works primarily as a standalone MIDI Controller (wireless or wired), but also will receive embedded support for the iRig Blueboard, and a small MIDI implementation to use any other configurable MIDI controllers.
  7. Getting the MIDI output loop commands back will be great, but I have no words to describe what a better MIDI implementation will mean for us. Don't quote me, but... Maybe something like... "The next firmware update promises to be a true milestone for us MIDI fans?".
  8. HX STOMP Wireless MIDI Controller has been updated to version 1.4
  9. The long awaited 1.4 Update for the HX Stomp MIDI Controller (IOS) Now Available!! : Free update for previous users (just check your in-box).
  10. 2021 UPDATES Changes Log: v1.2 Update - Jan 6 2021 Important changes: Now we're using the "Logic" profile in G-Board iMap. Please update your config if you were using a previous version of this Layout. Now your G-Board doubles as a Mackie MIDI controller when is connected to a computer using Logic Pro (OSX). This means that Logic also controls the LEDs! Improved graphic design (again) v1.1 Update - Jan 3 2021 Secondary screen added (Presets) Improved graphic design. Now the controller can receive CC69 (Snapshots), values [0,1,2] if they are configured to send such data in Command Center (this settings are saved per preset) Now the controller can receive CC1 & CC2 (EXP pedals) if they are configured to send such data in Command Center (this settings are saved per preset)
  11. It was certainly an undocumented feature, but it was great. Luckily, the guys at Line 6 are actively working on all this, and maybe we MIDI fans will have great news in the upcoming Helix 3.1 firmware. So, life's good. Line 6 rocks!
  12. Hi PierM! That's a very good question. Basically it means there is an bidirectional way of communication, whatever it is. But to be precise, the following Helix command are being received by this Layout (using fimware 3.0/3.01) : - MIDI PCs: Received and translated to ABCD format using this Layout - MIDI Looper Commands (Broken feature using fimware 3.0/3.01. It was working, and it will work again in the upcoming Helix 3.1 firmware) - EXP pedals: If configured to send CC1 and CC2 in Command Center, provides on-screen movement on the controller sliders. - Snapshots: If configured to send CC69, values 0-3, the changes made in the Helix device will be reflected both on the iPad screen and the G-Board LEDs. Hopefully, the upcoming Helix 3.1 firmware will make all this way easier, and much better.
  13. This is a Premium MIDI Layout for MIDI DESIGNER PRO 2 ( IOS App, sold separately) Specially made to work with a iCon G-Board and a compatible Line 6 Helix Device: Helix Floor, LT or Rack HX Effects POD Go If you have a HX Stomp, there is a specific Layout available: https://gumroad.com/l/bcZWg Provides all the logic to sync the eight onboard LEDs on the iCon G-Board with your iPad and your Helix device. 3-Way MIDI made easy! Requires an Apple CCK USB3 connected to A.C. to feed both the iPad and the G-Board, and a Wireless MIDI-BT device to work. Provides full hardware support for the iCon G-Board (MIDI footcontroller), including the eight onboard LEDs. Also works as an enterely wireless MIDI controller (using the Yamaha MD-BT01 or the CME WIDI Master wireless adapter) NOW AVAILABLE: iCon G-Board for HELIX/HX EFFECTS - IPAD Version!! Changes Log: v1.0 Release - 3 January 2021 Features: Preconfigured support for the iCon G-Board, including 8 LEDs 4 Presets (upper row), 4 Snapshots (lower row) Save up to 8 Banks (A-H) x 4 Presets Each Bank is represented with a funny icon Receives MIDI from your HX STOMP (Program Changes, Looper.

  14. Thank you very much EJmo, I really appreciate your feedback! Of course the Airturn devices work with this layout, I own the BT-200S-6 myself. You simply have to configure it to send the appropriate CCs or Notes, as seen on the Blueboard screen. The reason I have chosen the BlueBoard as a base is because of its two pre-configured Bluetooth LE modes. I find this feature extremely useful from both the programmer's and the user's point of view. I have also included two buttons to turn on all the BlueBoard LEDs in each of the different modes. But you can use the Blueboard, the Airturn, the Airstep, or any other MIDI device that sends those messages, actually. In a few hours I will launch a different layout made to use a specific USB footswitch, the iCon G-Board. This one does respond very well to LED control (and has 8 of them), but it required a bunch of Stream Byter logic to make it work. This is why I'm making a specific Layout for it. At first I did it thinking about the HX Effects, but I have realized that it will work for the whole Helix range, including the POD Go. The actual "iCon G-Board for HX Stomp" Layout will be updated too!
  15. Tested with my Helix Floor, HX Stomp and HX Effects. None of them are sending Looper MIDI Out commands anymore after the 3.0/3.01 firmware. Also... The label "Redo" no longer appears on the Helix Floor or HX Effects Scribble Strips.
  16. Spent half an hour trying to PM a moderator, but I was unsuccesful. Please move this thread to promote your patches section, someone!
  17. Wait a moment.... The MIDI Commander sending CC values others than min/max? (Snapshots) Where’s that “Dr. zuo’s special firmware package“?
  18. Well, an iPad is quite cheap nowadays! And this layout works even with very old devices (I'm using a iPad Air first gen) There are MIDI controllers for the rest of the Helix line here!: https://line6.com/support/forum/96-promote-your-patches/ This same thread will be moved there, eventually. But this subforum seems better to announce the release. Follow me for updates on what I am creating.

  20. Wouldn't it be wonderful if our HX Stomp had a dedicated professional, gig worthy, Plug & Play controller, where you don't have to program anything? What if it could also work with batteries, and... wirelessly? Better with a large touch screen as H.U.D?

It's small, light, and has those typical guitar switches ... It connects via USB and has no power connector, you also can't store presets banks, and... don't even have a screen! But it can be powered through the Apple CCK USB 3 (also feeding the iPad), it is in a Class-Compliant device, it has eight beautiful LEDs on board, and the most important thing: it also receives MIDI! Therefore, we just need a brain for it, something like an iPad, the wonderful MIDI Designer Pro 2 app, a wireless MIDI interface, and spend several dozen hours to create a semi-decent MIDI template. Or you can spend a few bucks to have this one: https://gumroad.com/l/bcZWg The top row controls the presets, which you choose from your iPad by sliding your finger on the selectors. Only one of the four LEDs will remain active, both on the pedalboard and on your screen. You can also automatically save 8 banks of 4 presets (A-H), each of them identified with a funny icon in the upper right of the screen. The lower row contains the three Snapshot footswitches. Again, only the LED from the last selected FS will remain active. The button in the lower right corner of the pedalboard is something special: it works in momentary mode and can act as any of the HX Stomp footswitches, from one to five. There is a 5-position selector around this footswitch, whose buttons also function as momentary push-buttons, so you can also activate them from the screen. The large preset marker at the top center of the screen receives MIDI from the HX STOMP, as well as the looper buttons (remember that for the looper to work, it must be included in the effect chain) You will also find other usual controls such as the mode selector, the Tap Tempo button, tuner, bypass, etc. All this in a single-screen, colorful interface. No configuration is required by the user. Perhaps the easiest way in the world to use your HX STOMP. Seriously. So easy to use that even a child will want to do it. We could consider that it is a form of semi-tethered connection, in the sense that we will connect the iPad and the pedal board to each other, and both to an AC connector through the USB3 CCK, on the one hand, and the data will travel wirelessly to the HX STOMP, which It can be a few meters away, sitting calmly on top of your amp, while your iPad faces the stage. Sit on your couch with your iPad and your G-Board, and enjoy your HX STOMP with this superb controller. It also works without the G-Board! (so you can use it right now, while ordering your G-Board at your nearest store) See you soon! Ed.
