Changing snapshots in Helix Native with computer keyboard

Recommended Posts

I'm using Helix Native through Presonus Studio One and Reaper and I'm wondering is there a way to key-bind snapshot changes to a keyboard so it's more convenient to use while playing live. I'm not interested in automation, etc, just simple click and change the snapshot functionality. 

I don't have any MIDI devices available except from virtual midi keyboard in Reaper or QWERTY keyboard plugin in Studio One.

I'm a total newbie in a MIDI world, btw.

Thanks

Yes, you could do that. You need to 1) set up a map (i.e. key binding) to map specific keyboard switches to midi controls in the DAW, and then 2) map those to Snapshot change numbers (1—8) in Helix Native. The DAW part is specific to the DAW you're using, but there are threads on the forum Reaper users have chimed in on (I'm using Logic). For the Native part, check out the user manual section called Automation/Controller Assign Tab, especially the part on "Automating Snapshot Changes."
