Radatats, I will first admit that I am a MIDI dummy. That said I have my Helix connected via L6 and one midi cable as you describe (Helix DT50/out to DT/in). I have even downloaded your templates. I still have multiple issues when I select any of them.
I downloaded your templates but I am getting mixed results. I was under the impression that CC#11 value 0 would eliminate all of the control panel and just run through the power amp section. The helix has taken over channel A but the control knobs still function and affect the overall sound. I went through each of your midi settings on your templates and they are all pretty similar. A typical layout for a template is as follows.
Instant Midi Ch CC# Value
1 Base 19 0 This tells me Channel A/B select value 0 places it on A
2 Base 11 0 This tells me HD amp select value 0 means none
3 Base 71 0 This tells me Cabinet select value 0 means none
4 Base 82 0 This tells me Direct out Mic Emulation type value 0 means none
5 Base 36 127 This tells me Reverb bypass/enable value 127 that the reverb is bypassed?
6 Base 77 0 or 1 Tells me that the Topology is either 0 is tight 1 is loose.
Does instant 2 not take out the controls on the face of the DT?
Does instant 5 not remove the reverb?
My question is what should my global Midi/Tempo settings be? (I think this might be a part of my problem)
Also I do see that there are individual CC#'s for Drive, Bass, Mid, ETC but there are 7 control knobs and only 6 instant commands (yes I can turn the reverb to low).
Again I am almost completely clueless about Midi and with what you have posted I have dabbled into this strange ocean but I am now feel like I am swimming against the current drowning fast. I so desperately want to keep my DT50 but it is getting harder too. I did buy a QSC K12 and run the Helix straight into it and it sounds great but I want my tube head and I want my 2X12 with vintage 30's because they still sound great and look even better.. I still have 10 days left to get this worked out to return the QSC.... Any thoughts
