    Reverb tails cutting off in Cubase 10

    Absolutely sure. I've checked this on two different PCs with the same result. There's obviously something strange happening between Helix Native and Cubase. It renders it pretty much unusable for me.
  2. Helix Native works fine in Cantabile, for instance, but in Cubase 10 the reverb tails cut off before they've faded out. Is this a known issue?

    Helix Firmware Upgrade 2.8 - Blues :(

    I'm awaiting the ability to set buttons to 'Toggle' in the Command Centre. I'm creating my live set for June this year and I was really hoping I wouldn't have to do the faffy workaround yet again. Oh well. Better late than bodged.

    Midi CC Feature desperately needed

    Yep, that precisely the solution that we've discussed above. I use 'Send 3' blocks, since that's unused for me and and anyway can't cause any unforseen glitches. The only significant problem I've run into that I seem to get the odd situation where certain Snapshots send out a pedal press and I've had to go in and delete/re-assign the switches all over again to cure it. I played the first live show last night with the configuration and all went well..

    If I wanted the switches to remain as toggles in Command Center, separate from their momentary behaviour in Bypass Control I'd call it a bug! Those two functions shouldn't be tied up with each other! We'll have to agree to differ on that one. Anyway, hopefully this will all be water under the bridge with the update. Thanks for all the advice and info - you've been a star!

    It will be good to see a genuine way of doing this. I suspect the update and fix will likely break this workaround entirely, assuming it was the exploitation of a bug-ette. Do we know when the update is arriving?

    Clever! It's a bit of a fudge, in that it seems I have to create a block to hang the footswitches on, so I created a row of dummy Send blocks to an unused output. Once created I could then assign the switch, and also assign it to a MIDI CC in Command Center (sic). In the Bypass Assign screen I set it to 'Momentary', and in Command Center I set it to 'Toggle'. I then named the switches to something friendly: 'Loop 1', 'Loop 2'... It looks odd, but it works. Thanks, mate! It seems like some odd, unintended consequence of an interplay between the Bypass Assign setting and the Control Center setting - I'd guess it's actually a bit of a bug. How you discovered this I can only wonder!

    Ok, I'll take a look when I'm back in the studio. Thanks.

    How? 'Toggle' and 'Momentary' are mutually exclusive.
  10. The_Elf

    Midi CC Feature desperately needed

    No it doesn't That's the problem. Nothing is sent on the lift of the switch when 'Momentary' is selected. I've proved this by recording the MIDI output.

    With 'Toggle' the Helix only sends the dim value when you press the footswitch a second time - so you have to make two presses for record, two presses for play, two presses for overdub - it's not a sensible way to work.

    Yes, I suppose the Helix should send out a value 0 on release. Maybe not the RC-505 at fault then...

    Just hitting this problem myself. It would appear that something is going amiss and it points at the RC-505. I'm trying to assign a Helix footswitch to the RC-505's Rec/Play function. With the Helix in MIDI CC mode and the RC-505 in Toggle mode: The first Helix control message fires the Rec function, but any further Helix-generated commands are ignored. With the Helix in MIDI CC mode and the RC-505 in Momentary mode: All commands from the Helix are ignored. With the Helix in MIDI CC Toggle mode and the RC-505 in Toggle mode: This *almost* works, but the Helix footswitch has to be pressed twice for every single action to be activated on the RC-505. So close! With the Helix in MIDI CC Toggle mode and the RC-505 in Momentary mode: Identical to when the RC-505 is in Toggle mode, as above. The Helix footswitch has to be pressed twice for every action to be activated on the RC-505. I think the problem is with the RC-505. Anyone found a way around this? It's a shame, because this pairing were almost made for each other, but for this gaping chasm!

    Tap light and delay time drifting out of time

    For some of us the accuracy of the tap light does genuinely matter. Since I raised this problem I've met others who have had the idea of doing what I'm doing (improv over repeating echoes), but have given up due to the tap light problem. That's a shame. I really hope it can be fixed with firmware. TBH there's really no excuse anyway - that tap light should be accurate no matter what clock it is running from; the maths behind it is trivially simple.

    Tap light and delay time drifting out of time

    Thanks, mate. I never expect perfection, and I never have a go at anyone for making an honest mistake (individual or companies) - it is how we react when a mistake is discovered that is the measure. In this case Line 6 has acknowledged my ticket, recreated my findings, given me an explanation and passed the message on - hopefully to someone who can look at the software. That's pretty good in my book. For my part I have thanked them for their response, and I will certainly keep this thread updated with progress in the hope that it can help someone else. BTW my current way around this problem is to set tempo to 60.3 and delay time to 3.994 seconds. That combo stays close enough in time to do the current improv job I'm undertaking. It means I can't use tap to change tempo mid-gig, but I can work with that.
