Helix Controlling Ableton & Sending Program Changes from Ableton


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


Maybe a simple question, I understand you can control Ableton from the Helix & you can receive program changes from midi. But how would you do both simultaneously?


Do I send Midi out of the computer into the Midi in of the Helix (For program changes) , and send out Midi back into the computer (Setlist Control / Play-Stop etc.)


Or is this all done via USB cable?


Thanks so much!

I haven't used my Helix as an Audio/MIDI interface yet, but plan to try it soon. I plan on using the USB interface to connect it to my PC. I'm a bit leery of this though since the USB connection seems to drop out when I use the HX editor.


Regarding controlling Ableton with the Helix...How are you planning to do this? I'm going to explore selecting an Ableton Live Set via the Helix and I'm not sure how to accomplish that yet. Any tips would be appreciated.
