iCon G-Board for HELIX/HX EFFECTS - IPAD Version!!


Recommended Posts

This is a Premium MIDI Layout for MIDI DESIGNER PRO 2 ( IOS App, sold separately)

Specially made to work with a iCon G-Board and a compatible Line 6 Helix Device:

  • Helix Floor, LT or Rack

  • HX Effects

  • POD Go

If you have a HX Stomp, there is a specific Layout available:

  • Provides all the logic to sync the eight onboard LEDs on the iCon G-Board with your iPad and your Helix device. 3-Way MIDI made easy!

  • Requires an Apple CCK USB3 connected to A.C. to feed both the iPad and the G-Board, and a Wireless MIDI-BT device to work.

  • Provides full hardware support for the iCon G-Board (MIDI footcontroller), including the eight onboard LEDs.

  • Also works as an enterely wireless MIDI controller (using the Yamaha MD-BT01 or the CME WIDI Master wireless adapter)



iCon G-Board for HELIX/HX EFFECTS - IPAD Version!!


Changes Log:

v1.0 Release - 3 January 2021



  • Preconfigured support for the iCon G-Board, including 8 LEDs
  • 4 Presets (upper row), 4 Snapshots (lower row)
  • Save up to 8 Banks (A-H) x 4 Presets
  • Each Bank is represented with a funny icon
  • Receives MIDI from your HX STOMP (Program Changes, Looper. Also Snapshots and EXPs, if configured accordingly using Command Center)
  • EXP 1-2 faders with Max/Min button
  • Ease of operation (single screen, big text, colorful elements)
  • Also works without the G-Board present (as a Wireless MIDI controller for your HX STOMP)
  • Can be used together simultaneously with a computer connected to USB (to use HX Edit o whatever)
  • The "Logic" template in the G-Board iMap editor is being used here, so it doubles as a Mackie Control controller if/when the G-Board is connected directly to a computer with OSX installed. Logic also controls the LEDs!
  • Extended visual Input: This Layout can receive CC69 (Snapshots), values [0,1,2,3] if you have configured your device to send such data in Command Center. The same is applied to CC1 and CC2 (EXP pedals). These changes must be saved per preset basis in your device.


Hardware requirements:

  • Helix Floor, LT or Rack, HX Effects, or POD Go.
  • iCon G-Board
  • MIDI Designer Pro 2 (IOS)
  • Apple iPad
  • Apple Lightning to USB3 Camera Adapter + cables and charger. This is used to feed both the iPad and the G-Board.
