Midi Control for FH1500

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any luck controlling the FH1500 Control Changes via Midi In eg: FS1 or EXP-1. I have tried using my GR-55 and FC-300 not having much luck, does anyone have any clues why nothing seems to be working as it should???

I've been trying to get this to work too, without any success.

 

The firehawk 1500 will receive program change messages and im able to select patches via midi, but nothing else.

 

In the "pilots guide" manual for the Firehawk 1500 there is a list of Midi CC#'s that the unit is surposed to respond to for FS1-5, EXP-1, EXP-2, looper controls etc, but none of them appear to work. I suspect that these only work when you have an FBV3 (or other Line6) foot controller connected to the FBV coinnctor and not via the standard Midi in connector which seems a little limited as far as Midi control is concerned

 

The other issue with controlling FS1 - 5 via midi is that without the FBV3 footswitch connected the option use these footswitches doesnt appear in the iOS/Android Remote App, so you cam't assign them to anything to use them anyway even if you could switch them on/off via Midi !

 

Line 6 - Please add the ability to use these Midi CC#'s via the standard Midi interface for those of us that don't have the FBV3 or want to control these functions from a seperate Midi controller.. This can't be a very difficult thing to do in a future update surely as functionality is already there!

I've tried for days with more MIDI floorboards, no success. There's an odd lack of documentation and support about that aspect. Pity as this is a blast of a product, but really I don't want to buy another specific floorboard.

I have been notified by Line6 the only thing you will ever be able to control on your "Very Expensive" 

Firehawk 1500 via MIDI is change patches.They have no intention of fixing it, it's a case of false advertising

 

 

"I'm sorry but the Firehawk 1500 midi features will only allow you to change patches. The info in the back of the manual

is not correct. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Thanks,"

Thanks a lot Line6 the sooner you let anyone else who may be intending to by the amp to take advantage of the so-called MIDI CONTROL (like myself) that Line6 does not have the knowledge or the know-how to impliment what most other brands can do without a hitch.
