Marshall JVM Channel Switching

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

So I have finally purchased myself a new Helix. I ordered it yesterday so it wont be here for another couple of days and the anticipation is killing me.

 

Anyway..... what I am wondering is if anyone has tried or knows if switching channels on the Marshall JVM410H is possible using the Helix? 

 

I have looked everywhere but cant seem to find any information about it.

from reading the manual your amp has full midi capabilities so yeah, Helix can do that...

Yeah I have used midi on my old TC Nova system to change channels before but when using a midi cable there was a significant delay in the channel switching, like up to 1-1.5sec.

What I am wondering is if I can plug into the 1/4" footswitch jack on the helix and assign switches on the helix to change channels on the amp, just as I do on my stock JVM footswitch?

Yes I have a JVMHJS  it's a piece of cake with a midi cable.....read the manual but basically set the channel you want and the way you want it with reverb, loop, etc. on the jvm front panel on a standard JVM, and double tap midi /footswitch button until it blinks quickly and then press the program you want on the Helix and it will be stored.

Thanks sonikimage, do you notice much of a gap when switching channels that way?

Instantaneous no gap whatsoever....this is the way you should do it.

 

Yeah awesome!! I'll give it a go. Thanks!

Ok so I got my Helix yesterday! Woop woop!! :D

 

Now..... I have been busy all day, setting up patches, from scratch.

 

I have set my Helix up using the 4CM method and MIDI cable as well to change channels on my JVM.

 

The one problem I am having is..... I cant seem to send midi commands when I'm in pedal mode. I can send a midi command when I'm in preset mode so that when I change presets it will change channels, reverb, master vol, FX loop, on my amp but I want to be able to switch between my amp and helix preamp within pedal mode. 

 

How do I send midi commands to the amp when in pedal mode?  :wacko:

Completely off topic here, so I apologize...where did you order from that you were able to get a Helix within 5 days?

I believe you can configure a pedal to send MIDI via the "Command Center" in the global menu.

 

Cheers.

I'm in South Australia. Purchased it from Derringers Music Adelaide. It was the last one in stock.

I have been into command centre and tried to assign a foot switch with midi so that I can switch channels on the amp but nothing is happening. Only when I'm in preset mode will it accept a midi command by changing presets.

Can anyone help me with this??

 

For the life of me, I can not figure out how to send a midi message from the Helix to my Marshall JVM410h within a preset. (in pedal/stomp mode)

I have been successful in sending messages from Helix to JVM when changing presets but not when I'm in pedal mode. I tried going into the command centre and assigning a foot switch to send midi but nothing....   :huh: it's got me stumped!!

I have ditched my DT25  Marshall cabinet in favor of Helix into the board and folding back into Line 6 L3t. I have never been happier with my sound, tones, and ability to hear without destroying the entire audience. Thank you Line 6 for your amazing innovations. I have been a Line 6 user all the way back to owning one of the first Axsys 212 with floorboard. I had serious problems but Line 6 support stood by me and even gave me a new amp. Kudos to Line 6!!

When you send the program you need can you be more specific?

I was having a similar problem with my 5150III. Changing the command type to bank/program vs midi cc was what solved the problem for me. I hope this helps.

Hi all, have the same problem, Which menu I have to select to adapt this?

Thanks!

Hi all,

 

I found the menu. Unfortunately the funtionality only works in stomp box mode. In the main settibngs I selected snapshots/ presets. So in the top row I always can select the snapshots. Goal so is to assign a midi program change on the snap shop foot switches. Is this possible?

The gaps between patches are so uge: Even my old Boss GT10 handles this in a better way. I was wondering that this unit can not handle this in a better way?! Could this be improved by a new firmware?

Thanks!

JuRo
