Connecting Midi In to Midi Out to send messages to yourself

Recommended Posts

I know it's a stupid sounding title, however, on one of the earlier firmware levels I was able to direct connect Midi in and out, and use button 12 to toggle snap shot 1/2.

A lot of my presets have only 2 snapshots, and I don't use tap tempo at all, so it saved me from having to press buttons 1/7 and go into snapshot view, I'm usually in 8 presets view.

With the current level of firmware, shorting the midi in & out causes a kind of feedback loop that freezes and locks up the Helix. Has anyone else messed around with this?

I wish the helix had more footswitch programming options.

Make sure that MIDI THRU is OFF. Might not solve the problem, but worth a try.

I figured out what was going wrong, I got it to work now. Button 12 is now programmable.

So, fill us in (help the next guy). What was wrong?

The problem was that, when you re-save, you have to make sure you only do that on snapshot 1. Because the footswitch is set up that initial is snap 1, toggle is snap 2. Some times I would save it on snapshot 2 which creates a conflict and crashes the helix.

Good to know. Thanks!
