  1. Hello, just wondering if anyone knows if theres a way for the controller to turn off the lights when you change patch on a toggle switch. i would love to know what effects are on while playing and then be able to play the next song without the lights staying on the toggle switches. i currently use it on momentary mode but having this very small addiction would help a-lot of FVB3 users.
  2. I made a two-button footswitch for changing Helix patches up and down, using a generic (Elegoo) Arduino Nano board. It sends MIDI program change messages, and is endlessly customizable. Complete parts list: Hammond 1590a enclosure Elegoo nano (set of three for cheap https://www.amazon.com/Arduino-Elegoo-ATmega328P-without-compatible/dp/B0713XK923 ) two SPST momentary (normally open) switches LED and 220 ohm resistor (optional) panel-mount MIDI jack panel-mount 9v jack (optional, easy to power from 9v battery--Nano draws only 25mA, and only 37mA while LED is lit) hookup wire My code is pasted below. Entire project took less than two hours, and cost less than dinner. // midi.controller // Sends midi program change // Aaron Lyon April 2018 #include <MIDI.h> MIDI_CREATE_DEFAULT_INSTANCE(); byte patchNum = 0; #define BUTTON_PIN_1 2 #define BUTTON_PIN_2 3 #define LED_PIN 13 void setup() { pinMode(BUTTON_PIN_1, INPUT_PULLUP); pinMode(BUTTON_PIN_2, INPUT_PULLUP); pinMode(LED_PIN, OUTPUT); MIDI.begin(MIDI_CHANNEL_OMNI); } void loop() { if (digitalRead(BUTTON_PIN_1) == LOW && patchNum < 99) { // Next Program digitalWrite(LED_PIN, HIGH ); patchNum++; MIDI.sendProgramChange(patchNum, 1); delay(200); digitalWrite(LED_PIN, LOW ); } if (digitalRead(BUTTON_PIN_2) == LOW && patchNum >= 1) { // Next Program digitalWrite(LED_PIN, HIGH ); patchNum--; MIDI.sendProgramChange(patchNum, 1); delay(200); digitalWrite(LED_PIN, LOW ); } }
  3. Hello everybody, I would like to solve an issue that is driving me mad... I have my hx stomp with a line6 mission expression control and an external midi controller. in general setting I assigned the footswitch 5 (the mission one) to pass from exp pedal 1 to exp pedal 2. When I connect my midi controller (that has 4 different modes) in Red mode (preset up/down) it changes also the job of the expression pedal FS. This is why in global setting you can set 5 footswitches but in my case they are 6. It seems a bit twisted... but i can make video to make it clear :) Thank you
  4. In order to save my three footswitches for my three snapshots I am looking for a solution to access the stomp tuner. I want to avoid having to use additional foot switches. My "Forscore" App is able to send MIDI commands. Is there a way to access the HX Stomp tuner via MIDI? I could not find any clues in the manual.
  5. Hi folks. New Helix LT user here. I am having an issue with Command Center specifically configuring midi note on messages, to control the looping functions of my Elektron Octatrack. I have setup 2 switches in Command Center, both momentary. The first sends midi note 62 (D4), the second sends midi note 64(E4). It works, but for some reason one or both switches keep reverting back to midi note C1. I keep recreating the patch, saving it, but it keeps happening. Any ideas? Very frustrating, as if it would just retain my configured notes, it would work perfectly. The only thing I am not sure of is the capacative touch switches. Is it possible that I am touching the switch and moving the expression pedal to a value of zero and this is changing the setting? I have tried to recreate this scenario and can't. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Hey there, HX Stomp newbie here. I recently bought a HX stomp and a Boss ES-5 effects switcher to upgrade my pedalboard. So far everything works pretty good, but i have one problem i can't solve. I use the ES-5 to send MIDI commands to the HX stomp. Every time i press a switch on the ES-5 it sends a program change (PC) to select a preset on the Stomp and also a Midi CC #69 (values 0-2) to select a snapshot of that preset. However, i only get to the wanted snapshot if the Stomp preset is already active. But if the stomp does indeed need to change the preset it seems to ignore the CC #69 and will always start with the snapshot that was last edited in HX edit or on the stomp itself. Does anyone know a solution for this? Could it be a bug? My firmware is at V 3.01.0. Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi, new to the forum and am the owner of a new Helix. I am..was MIDI illiterate, and tried to get info online on how to control my Invective with the Helix without much luck. Any threads regarding this topic usually had very vague information, probably with the notion that whoever was reading it already had an understanding of MIDI...which I didn't. So...this is for the people out there like me. Step one...plug in the footswitch that comes with the Invective and press the Channel 1 select button. Then press the Preset Mode button until all the buttons blink red. Then select Channel 1, and disconnect the footswitch from the amp. Insert MIDI cable from Helix...a 5 pin unlike the 8 pin that the Invective comes with into the amp. Next, go to Global Settings and select MIDI/TEMPO. Select Midi Base Channel as Omni. Then toggle to Preferences and make sure that Snapshot Edits are on "Recall"...not "Discard". Next..hit Menu, and select Command Center. I use the Instant Commands so I can use it with snapshots. Toggle over to Instant 1 in Bank/Program Mode. Set MIDI Channel to 1, leave the Bank CC00 and Bank CC32 blank. Then look in the Invective manual Pages 13-15, and select the Program number with the configuration that you want into the "Program" box in the Command Center. Exaple: If you want the 1st channel with Loop 1 on..enter 36 If you want the 3rd channel with the Gate, Boost, Master boost, and Loop 1 enter 59. It's so simple. I can't believe it took me as long as it did to figure out. And lastly, press save before leaving the Preset and all your settings will stick. I hope I can help some other clueless people like myself with these instructions.
  8. Hi, this is a little DIY project I built: It's a small Arduino based two button MIDI foot switch for the Helix HX Stomp. It is more flexible and more powerful than the "normal" foot switches connected via TRS cable and as a bonus you can still use an expression pedal hooked up to your HX Stomp. The MIDI Muppet HX can scroll through presets (normal mode) scroll through snapshots (snapshot mode) act as FS4/FS5 (fs mode) bring up the tuner (in any mode) To cycle through modes, press and hold the right (up) switch. To toggle the tuner, press and hold the left (dn) switch. If this is something you are interested in building please check out more information at https://github.com/mattzzw/midi_muppet_hx_2btn Other ideas are integrating tap tempo, looper control, ... Feedback and ideas are welcome! Cheers, /Matthias
  9. Since version 3.0, the Helix family showed a capability about polyphonic tracking. I would like to use my HX Stomp or my Helix Native plugin to track the guitar and convert the sound to midi like the jamorigin plugin so it can then feed a synth. There is also Migic but it can only track one note. Thanks!
  10. I have a question about HX stomp MIDI connection options. I use a wireless MIDI connection with Yamaha MDBT01 Bluetooth between HX stomp and my iPad. The iPad sends programme change commands to the stomp from the Forscore app. In addition, I want to work simultaneously on my MacBook with the HX edit, which I have connected via the other MIDI USB output. But I need this USB output to connect a Morningstar MC 6. Now my question: Can I connect the MacBook to the HX stomp in another way without using this USB output?
  11. I know this has probably been suggested frequently, but I'll bring it up: Please add a stand alone VDI interface for the Variax. I love the Variax, but I don't want to be stuck with my HD-500 (or Helix) if I want to control the model switching / provide power and get the digital signal from the onboard processor. This unit would of course have a VDI connector to the Variax and 1/4 plugs for standard gear. This unit would also accept midi-in and provide mini-out with the Variax knobs providing Control-Change messages. I know this is how Line 6 gets you to buy into their 'eco-system', but I really think the Variax would be even more popular if it was easier to integrate all it's features into non Line 6 setups. Yes, I know you can hack an old PODXt or something, but I don't have time for that.
  12. Hi Everyone, I hope that you are all healthy and doing OK in these difficult times. I'm considering buying the HX stomp and have 2 questions: 1) Is it possible to control snapshot select, preset select , tuner select etc. via MIDI through USB (USB OTG-cable) through an Android-phone ? 2) Is it possible to place an A/B split first in the signal chain and control the volume going to both paths with an expression pedal (Line 6 EX-1) and to do volume swells this way? I know the panning between path A and B with an expression pedal is possible, but I want to do volume swells (both paths simultaneously) this way. Thanks in advance . Have a nice day, T
  13. Hey everyone, I hope all of you are doing well in this ongoing pandemic and you are at a safe place right now! Recently, I set up a Ableton Live 11 Project with Songs, where I want to play guitar to for live gigs. In order to have the right snapshots in the right moment, I created midi clips that send over Midi control -> 69 Hold Pedal 2 signals to my Helix that are changing the snapshots. I also added clips where it changes the presets via program and sub. I set up the midi base channel to 7 because I read somewhere I shouldn't use the standard base one. I also turned off Midi PC Send and additionally I set up the snapshots to 1, 5 and 8 in order to avoid potential failure signals, because they might be too close to each other. Problem A: I tried it with usb, but my usb connection sometimes interrupts, thats why I use a midi connection. However, this is working until the 3rd scene in my Ableton project starts playing, then it doesn't adjust to the right snapshot in the preset (which is just a duplicate from the first one). For instance, it changes to Preset 1-> Snapshot 1 but it should be Preset 1 -> Snapshot 8. Problem B: When I play a bit with it and I change the scenes manually, it changes the right snapshots or presets but at one point my Helix is freezing. My setup is a MacBook Pro 2019, Mac OS Catalina and a Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 1st generation and the Helix Version is 3.01.0. If you need any further details, please tell me and thanks in advance to somebody who is helping me with this issue! Best regards Fabian
  14. So I am looking to get an XY Midi pad built into my guitar and I want to know if I can use it to control any effects like the Pitch Wham. If someone has done this please share with me some videos or something to show me how it was done. Much appreciated
  15. I recently purchased a used DT50. When trying to find out if needed a firmware update, I was unable to get Line 6 Monkey to recognise the amp. I tried a different MIDI interface, with no success. I am able to receive MIDI signals from the DT50, for example, the channel selector sends CC19, but I cannot get the DT50 to recognise the same CC when I send it via MIDI controller to it. Now, I know my way around the insides of a tube amp (discharging caps, etc), and would like to diagnose further why the MIDI input isn't working rather than having to send it in for (costly?) repair. Looking at the I/O PCB, it looks like the optocoupler is a likely candidate - are those known to fail? Other than this and the connectors between the I/O and the digital board, are there any other components that I should be checking?
  16. Is it possible to control the HX Effects with a Voodoo Labs Ground Control Pro and GCX via midi where 8 IA Buttons for the 8 blocks 4 Snapshots controlled by the 4 preset buttons Up & Down buttons to change presets The HX Effects will sit in a rack unit using 4cm out to the amp. Thanks
  17. Hello everyone! First time using the forums, so bear with me here. I recently bought a Hughes and Kettner GrandMeister 40 and would like to be able to switch presets on the amp using my HX effects. I’ve used the HX in the past for channel switching, but would like to be able to jump to different presets depending on the effect presets I’m using on the HX. I know I’d need to use the midi outs on both the head and HX, but am totally stumped on what to do from there. Any advice or tips? Thanks in advance!
  18. I have a Helix floor, I would love to be able to have a separate footswitch control changing snapshots within a preset. Is this possible?
  19. Hi everyone, I'm a longtime HX Effects user, and would like to use the HXFX to control Native in the same way as I do for the hardware effects. I'm finding this very cumbersome & slow. For example, in Ableton I've had to first individually map each CC Toggle / Expression value to a "switch" in the plugin's "configure" interface, and if I want one switch to control multiple things (easy on HXFX), I have to assign it to multiple "switches" in "configure". THEN I have to map these switches to the switches inside the Helix Native plugin itself. This wouldn't be so bad if I just had to do it once, but there is seemingly no way to SAVE these mappings anywhere. So I have to continually RE-DO all this, which means it takes ~20 minutes just to insert the plugin. Is there any way to integrate HXN with HXFX better, so that the switches/expression pedals in the plugin itself are mapped (and these mappings are saved)? There's that enticing "MIDI In" indicator bottom right in the plugin, which implies there must be a way for the plugin to directly receive MIDI, but I've never figured this out. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  20. Hello all, Does anyone know if there is a MIDI CC code to mimic a push on view button of the HX stomp ? Thanks
  21. Not long ago I started using the MidiCC59 applied to a foot switch on the control centre to switch between EXP1 and EXP2. This has suddenly stopped doing what I expect it to do, and I can't seem to get into EXP2 either with MidiCC switching or the toe switch........it's bending my brain! If it helps, i use this because my wah block is set to bypass on EXP1 at 5%, in other words, as a switchless wah. However, I want to also use EXP2 as a min/max speed controller for my Rotary block. I was using MidiCC59 and a short Midi cable from out to in with thru off to enable this Midi switching approach and remove the need for toe switch to be used. It HAD been working perfectly, but now not.........any experts out there??
  22. Here's a video featuring My board HX stomp, switcher, pedals and midi https://youtu.be/fbQpAtlYb0g
  23. So I have the Helix using a Payne Lab K-Switcher to midi control my Mesa Dual Rec. It all works great except when I click either my clean/crunch/or lead channel the led lights up while it is pushed then it goes away. Is there a way to make the LED stay on depending on the channel selected?
  24. Hi! New HX Stomp user here! I'm having very strange problems with my HX Stomp which is controlled via MIDI by a Boss ES-5. The stomp seems to sporadicly IGNORE incoming midi CCs, which is driving me nuts. :'( In order to understand what's happening i'm using this very simple example: * Footswitch 1 of the ES-5 sends a MIDI CC (4:127) to turn on a block in the active HX preset. * Footswitch 2 of the ES-5 sends CC 4:0 to turn the same block off. And that's it. NO program change and NO snapshot changes (CC69) are send. Just the CC #4 which is assigned to one block. Now, if i press FS 1 & 2 on the Boss ES-5 alternately, the Stomp works as it should. However, in a few cases the Stomp just ignores the CC#4 and the the block stays bypassed after pressing FS1 OR it stays active after FS2. Both cases can happen. The frequency of this issue is highly variable. I counted up to more than 100 successful changes (100 * FS1 and 100* FS2) until the problem occurs. Sometimes it occurs after approx 10 changes, sometimes after 20... As you may guess, this is driving me insane. Slowly but certainly. Does anyone have an idea what's going on here? Thanks in advance! By the way: i tried using a different MIDI cable, so that should not be the problem here.
  25. Hi together, I just received my HELIX LT and I truly enjoy it so far. However, I am running into issues whenever I try to sync it with the MIDI clock of my DAW (Ableton Live). I already searched for possible solutions in the support forum but couldn't find any reliable solution so far. In my current setup, I use snapshots and I change those quite frequently (sometimes mutliple times per bar), e.g. to switch the MIDI sync tempo of a tremolo or other modulation devices. The corresponding commands will be sent via a MIDI channel (currently channel 4) in Ableton Live which includes the different values for each snapshot in the corresponding CC (for snapshots, it is CC69). Whenever I do that, the MIDi clock gets out of sync or delayed in some sort. This is also represented in the blue tap tempo light, which flash is noticeably out of sync compared to my DAW metronome. I already did some troubleshooting and below you find my conclusions so far: - Occurs for both for slow and fast BPM. - Occurs both for sending commands via USB MID and MIDI Interface - Does not seem to be a "simple" delay, namely a latency which can be compensated within the DAW itself. It rather appears to me that the amount of sync error is fluctuating over time. I am really not sure if that problem is specifically related to Helix, but it prevents me from utilizing most of the great time-based effects of the HELIX. Therefore, I would highly appreciate any kind of support or ideas for potential workarounds. Many greetings!
