Can't get my HX to control the H9 expression via midi.  I also can't get the H9 to receive midi clock from the HX.  Anybody doing this already?

Thanks,

Marty

I'm changing presets on my H9 and switching it on and off, but with a Helix, not an HX FX. I still may be able to help you, though.
Just in case it's a simple matter of not sending the message correctly: My H9 is configured to answer to MIDI channel 2 (not that it matters)
so that, for example, to change a preset, I program one instant midi command on the Helix to MIDI Ch 2, Bank C000 1, Bank CC32 1, Program 17 (to select P18 on the H9).
Are you sending the right Bank C000 and CC32 values?

Thanks for the reply. I've followed your procedure but it appears that the H9 isn't receiving any midi data. I'm not sure why this is. Everything seems configured correctly on both the HX as well as the H9. Did you have a problem with the H9 receiving data?

Nope, it's worked since the beginning.
If the cable is OK and you're sending the message on the same channel the H9 is configured to respond to, I don't know what else I can tell you, sorry.

No worries... I appreciate the help.  It's a new cable, but you never know.  I'll test it tonight.

Well... just wow... turns out it wasn't working till i unplugged from the computer. Now the fun begins.

 

I really appreciate you helping a kindred musician. Nothing more sad than getting static when you need help.

 

I'll try to return the favor here whenever I can.

Damn! now that you mention it, that happened to me too! Sorry that I didn't remember earlier.
Glad you found out anyway. That doesn't happen if you control the H9 via bluetooth.
USB control > H9 ignores incoming data on the DIN port
Bluetooth control > H9 obeys relevant data on the DIN port

I'll definitely try the Bluetooth. Btw i have a roland ev5 going to the helix but want it to act like it's plugged into the H9. I think i can do it with the right midi cc. Do you do anything like that?

I know I tried it sometime, and it worked, and IIRC, I even tried controlling the H9 with Helix's CV out... anyway, MIDI should do it.
I'm not doing that now because I bought the Mission pedal for the H9.
Try it, and if you don't get it to work, tell me and I'll look into it.

I think i have it working but don't know what cc paths go to what functionality. It seems to be between 20 and thirty

On your editor, go to: Pedal > Assign MIDI CC messages to pedal functions.
There you have what's currently assigned to what.

Indeed, that's what I've been doing but the H9 midi spec is unclear as to what cc number would control say volume (typically cc 7 in midi) as opposef to the "a" to "b" slider on most of the algorithms.
