Does Helix support model forcing on Variax 500?

Recommended Posts

Does Helix support model forcing with a Variax 500? Does it support anything with a Variax 500? (I suppose at a minimum it will power it.)

It will power it and pass audio through the VDI cable, but will not force the model or other controls.

 

This is as of the current Helix firmware - it's possible they might implement old-school Variax full support in the future, but there's no guarantee they will, and it seems to me that it's not all that likely.

I have tested a Variax 300 with Helix. Officially it is unsupported but communication actually works in one direction - from Helix to Variax. You can use the Helix controls to store/save/recall Variax models in the Helix preset and it behaves as desired. However, communication from Variax to Helix does not work. So for instance if you switch the model using your Variax controls the change will not be reflected in the Helix preset and the Helix Variax page display turns to gibberish.
