Switching expression with footswitch

Recommended Posts

Based on a tip here, I was able to set up a footswitch (not the toe switch) to switch expression pedals. You had to loop a MIDI cable out and back in to the MIDI I/O and send CC 59 back into the Helix. Weird, but it worked. I play sitting down and I find the toe switch ridiculously hard to engage on the fly, but beside that, this workaround allows the same expression position to remain (say, volume) when switching to a wah pedal. I could have sworn I read somewhere on here that this was able to be done now with 2.8 without the cable. I've looked for that info but haven't had any luck finding anything. Can anyone shed any light on that?
