Midi PC of M5 not working

Recommended Posts

I'm having an issue with controlling my midi program changes of my M5 unit with my Helix. I had it working properly but now it is not. I have it setup to do a program change on the M5 from the Command Center in the Helix per preset. I have the midi channels set appropriately on both units but the Helix is not sending the PC I am telling it to in the Command Center. It just sends the corresponding PC of that particular preset. In other words, if I select preset 01 on the Helix it selects midi PC01 on the M5 and so forth.

 

Any ideas?

So you're setting up instant commands in the Command Center?

 

As far as I know, the Helix doesn't send any PC commands automatically when you load a preset. It only sends what is programmed.

Yes I'm setting up instant commands in Command Center. But strangely it seems to be ignoring them and sending the corresponding midi PC that matches the Helix preset.

Ah, yes. Helix is doing both. It's sending your Instant Command, and then sending the preset's PC message immediately after. It appears as if your Instant Command was not sent, even though it was.

 

Go to Global Settings > MIDI/Tempo and turn "PC Send/Receive" off (which doesn't affect manual Command Center assignments). It should work after that.
