Helix to MIDI trigger ableton pads

Recommended Posts

So.

 

If I wanted to use the MIDI control of the Helix to trigger Ableton to play some pads on a laptop, what type of cable would I need...  I looked for MIDI to USB cables, and there are bunch of different kinds of them, so I'm just not sure which I would need.   Do I need one that has 2 MIDI connectors (1 in and 1 out) or just one MIDI connection?

As long as MIDI over USB is enabled, you don't need any special cables, just the same USB that you use with HX Edit.

Is that a setting in the Helix, or on the computer?  I've never really messed with MIDI before , so have no idea how to set it up.l
