Controlling DT25 parameters via MIDI

Recommended Posts

Hello all! First post on here...

 

A topic came up over on the Helix forum about using the footswitches to control differentiated states of amp parameters (I.E. toggling between two different drive levels etc.)

 

Now, I know that there is no MIDI mapping on the POD HD side for internal controls of the amp parameters via MIDI, but you are capable of using CC commands to adjust the DT25 side of things...

 

Is it possible to control the amp parameters via MIDI input while L6 link is connected via a separate MIDI cable?

 

It's kind of the same theory that people are using on the Helix to control topology adjustments, only allowing the internals to be controlled due to the handshake that happens via L6 link.

 

Anyone tried this?

Yes, I was doing this with Helix hooked up via L6 Link and DT Edit on my PC going through MIDI cables.  I've also done it with Helix via L6 Link and Helix via MIDI cable.  The POD HD should work as well.

Also, if you don't have it already, download the DT MIDI Implementation Guide http://line6.com/support/manuals/dt25hd which was a big help to me.
