  1. The situation is this: I use Helix Rack a lot with Helix Control. I also use Helix Native every now and then. One thing I miss when using Helix Native, is using Helix Control to umm, control things. I have my Helix Rack connected to the same Mac that I run Native on via USB. Is there any way to set up a preset (on Helix Rack) that just allows either all of a portion of the stomps and my expression pedal to pass through to the Mac via USB to control Native?
  2. Did a full factory reset, then restored from a backup. It seemed to work fine for a bit, then it froze again while changing presets.
  3. Firmware 2.92. Upgraded by the book, did the update, reset, restore from backup, etc, etc. Recently my Helix Rack has been locking up when switching between presets. I noticed it mostly when changing presets via the Control footswitches. I also just noticed it when using HX Edit. If double-click a different preset, it pops up an error saying it can't select the preset. HX Edit then disconnects. Error: "Timeout waiting for a response from the device. code -8212" Just to describe a little more, when I say it locks up/freezes. It's completely unresponsive. The only fix is to turn it off, then back on. This usually fixes it, but it usually comes back after some undetermined length of time or sequence of actions occur. Has anyone else seen anything like this? I think I might try a factory reset and restore from backup to see if that helps things.
  4. Cool. Did you have to do anything special or set anything up differently to make sure the Midi messages aren't interpreted by the Helix instead of just being passed through?
  5. Is it possible to have an external 3-5 button Midi Footswitch connected to the Helix via Midi, then have those Midi messages passed to a computer via USB? I'm sure/certain Midi messages are passed from the Midi In to the Midi Out/Thru, but are the messages also passed via USB? Footswitch--(midi)-->Helix Rack--(USB)-->Computer The goal would be to have dedicated DAW Transport switches for controlling Play/Stop, Record, Return to Beginning, etc.
  6. Thanks. Sorry for the delay in responding, but this helped. As a secondary question, do you just build in an FX Loop for all of your presets, or is there a way to selectively disable 4CM? I suppose I could work up some fun Midi controlled line switcher or something that diverts the signal to the appropriate input on my amp when I select specific presets.
  7. I have my Helix LT set up in 4CM with a PRS MT-15 Amp. Guitar -> Helix LT Guitar Input LT Send -> MT-15 Input MT-15 FX Send -> LT Return 1 LT Mono Output -> MT-15 FX Return This appears to work fine with all of the presets without any Send/Return block in play. The issue I'm having is that the volume knobs on my MT-15 now do nothing. If I set either or both to zero, I still get full signal. Only the volume knob or pedal adjust the volume. Do I need a special Send/Return block for this to work properly? Is this expected behavior? What am I missing here?
