Yes. The issue was rectified in recent updates.

Has this issue been resolved?

The current functionality is provided as-is by iOS and does not include a reconnect capability. Adding this would require rewriting the functionality using lower-level frameworks. That's on my wish list and I'll add a vote for you.
MIDI Help / Wish List - auto re-connect bluetooth devices
« Last post by Zionplayer on January 19, 2019, 05:19:23 AM »
I am using Bandhelper as my command center for my band: songs, set lists, and midi control of lights and other devices. So efficient that it can serve all purposes! But I do have an ask that would make things a little more streamlined for me -

I have two bluetooth foot pedals and two bluetooth receivers in my setup, and each time I start Bandhelper I need to go to midi and 'connect' to these devices. Could Bandhelper either
1) automatically try once or twice to reconnect past devices, or
2) could there be some single, accessible button I could add to my layout to initiate a reconnect?

Is not bad they way it works now, but in the setup rush for the PA plus my gear, I sometimes don't think to go reconnect the devices until I try it and it doesn't work, then remember and go to midi, bluetooth devices, connect, etc...

Is interesting that these devices don't show up in my iPad bluetooth configuration until after Bandhelper hooks to them. So iPad doesn't remember them either...
MIDI Help / Yamaha MD-BT01 Trouble - Anyone?
« Last post by Zionplayer on January 19, 2019, 04:52:08 AM »
Looking for some help on my MD-BT01 device. I love using this bluetooth solution, and decided to buy another to use with our x32r board. To keep them straight I used the Yamaha app to rename one, and it also said there is new firmware, so I updated.

Turns out the new v1.05 firmware bricked my BT01,apparently loading UD-BT01 firmware instead, and of course it no longer works. I went to the app store looking for an update and the app itself has been removed!?  This doesn't look good..

From what little I know there is no way to 'revert' to older firmware, at least the app doesn't provide that option. Anyone else seen this issue? I have contacted Yamaha support, nothing yet.  Thanks!

Hi Arlo,

Thanks for your help! I use the 3-fingered tab, the 2-fingered tab I already use for closing the document and go back to the list. In my layout I use the full screen view, there I didn't find a possibility to add a "next song button". But I can live with the 3-fingered tab version ;-)

Repertoire Help / Re: Is there a solution for transmitting tap Tempo from BH to devices?
« Last post by arlo on January 18, 2019, 08:54:09 AM »
BandHelper can send MIDI Beat Clock. All you have to do is turn on Settings > Tempo & Pitch > Send MIDI Beat Clock, then play the tempo for a song.
This is an old thread but I'm interested in this. What is required is for the BH to transmit via the tempo in each song the Midi Clock derived from that tempo to the CC associated from the midi clock. There is already a midi standard for that function.

Here is a snippet from a product called Logic Pro and how it performs Midi Sync/MTP and SMPTE to other devices.

Supported synchronization protocols
MIDI Time Code (MTC): Translates a SMPTE timecode signal into a MIDI standard timecode signal. See MTC interpretation.

MIDI Clock: Short MIDI message for clock signals. Used to provide a timing pulse between MIDI devices.

Logic Pro Xcan send MIDI Clock signals to synchronize external devices.

Logic Pro Xcan not receive MIDI Clock synchronization signals.

SMPTE timecode: An audio signal that is translated into MTC by some MIDI interfaces, such as the Unitor8.

Word Clock: A signal that is carried by all digital audio interface formats: ADAT, FireWire Audio, S/P-DIF, AES/EBU, T-DIF, and others. Used to maintain the timing integrity of sample words in audio signals that are transmitted digitally between Logic Pro X and external hardware or software. See Audio Synchronization settings.

ReWire: Logic Pro X can act as a ReWire host. It acts as the master synchronization source for ReWire-enabled applications such as Reason and Ableton Live. See ReWire objects.

If you take the Tempo entry from the song and transmit a steady timecode out the CC port then you will achieve this.

I am currently using BH to manage my set lists and connect to all of my Midi devices to change patches and having the Tempo Sync via MTC SMPTE out the midi would be extremely handy.

I'm sure a lot of musicians would love to have this. It would take BH to another level. Full control of everything on stage including lighting etc.

The Yamaha metronome app can supposedly do this, but I wasn't able to make it work. That was at least a year ago. Might be a place to start.
