Using Helix Floor and Helix Native in a DAW

Recommended Posts

Can you use Helix Native Plug-in in Pro tools with the helix floor? While recording I want to be able to use the presets on my helix floor and upload them onto my band members helix native. This would allow me to use the helix floor as the controller for the tone that is being recorded thus allowing me to change the tone after if needed while listening back, this would then remove the re—amping process and need for wet-dry recording. They could communicate similar to helix Edit and helix floor, and allow for real time adjustments and tone
 

thanks

I'm gonna say this because I care...there are plenty of decaffeinated brands on the market that are just as tasty as the real thing...

YES

 

Can you control Helix Native with Helix Floor Control?

Not directly. You need to have it connected to the Rack, with ControlCenter configured to send the proper MIDI commands over USB/MIDI from the Rack to the computer.

 

If you decide to buy a Helix Floor to control Native, be sure to buy a HELIX FLOOR, NOT a Floor Control. They're different products, and not interchangeable.

I'm pretty sure that ProTools only allows ProTools add-ins. I don't think you can use Native.

Pro Tools supports AAX which is another format Helix Native supportssssss snakesssssssssss.

 

Helix Rack has a usb out port that enables you to connect Helix Rack to Mac or PC.

Helix Floor Control has a USB port that enables you to connect the Helix Floor Control to Mac or PC.

The USB port on Helix Floor Control is not meant to connect a cable from the USB port on the Helix Floor Control to The Helix Rack.

There is a dedicated port on the Helix Rack that enables you to connect the Helix Rack to the Helix Floor Control.

The USB port on the Helix Floor Control enables you to connect a cable from the Helix Floor Control to your Mac or PC controlling Helix Native AAX/VST/AU.

 

James, not Jimmy
