Repertoire Help / Re: Helix Midi control...few questions

-- press the Helix button. You should see something in the Monitor window. DATA1 should be 50-53 (hex values corresponding to decimal 80-83). DATA2 should be 7F (decimal 127) and CHAN should be, in my case, 5.

I was good til here.  I get nothing when I step on my Prev/Next Song buttons.  Using channel 5, and CC 80/81.  I exited 'stomp mode' and changed presets and the Midi Input Monitor went nutz...I switched back to my preset I want to use and it again went nuts.  One time not stopping...it literally scrolled for about 5 or 6 seconds before I killed the application and exited. 

Hm....

in the android app, I get the same response, both set to channel 5, and 80/81 only setup for prev/next song buttons and I get nothing in the activity log under the midi status. 

Only thing left would be to try a new cord...but this is with the USB cord, not the MIDI 2x2 I was trying before....i unfortunately get the same thing with the midi 2x2....

Hey Iguana,

thank you again for the detailed help.  It doesn't sound like your doing anything different than I am.  I will follow your instructions, including the midi channel setting and see if I can duplicate.  I know in the Midi program you told me about those menu options sound familiar but maybe I missed something on the pc side of it.  ON the android side I was getting those CC messages so I think that parts right. 

hoping to get it all hammered out tonight finally.  Acoustic show Thursday for 2 hours and my Wednesday is a mandatory after work-work meeting, lol...so limited time or its manual for another show.

Finally got my rig home today and updated to 2.8, too! Looking forward to using the KoT...

So here's how I've got thing set up:

In the BandHelper App: (not the website...)
- in your project Setting/Remote Control:
    -- MIDI Input Channel - this can be set to any allowable value, but all messages destined to BH must invoke this value. In my case, I use channel 5
    -- And then set Previous Song/Next Song/etc to CC 80, 81, etc.

In Helix, in your preset, go to the Command Center:
    -- for each button, set the MIDI Channel to whatever value you picked above. In my case, 5.
    -- CC # will be 80, 81, 82, or 83
    -- Value will be 127
    -- Switch LED and name will be whatever you want.

I have my Helix connected to my PC, and using MIDI-OX:
    -- First in the Options menu, select MIDI Devices. Under MIDI Inputs, "Line 6 Helix" should be listed. (There might be a number before it, like "2- Line 6 Helix")
    -- Click on that input to highlight it, then click OK
    -- next, under the View menu, select "Input Monitor..."
    -- press the Helix button. You should see something in the Monitor window. DATA1 should be 50-53 (hex values corresponding to decimal 80-83). DATA2 should be 7F (decimal 127) and CHAN should be, in my case, 5.

This will tell you that your Helix is sending the right data.

With the Helix connected to my Android device through my MIDI interface (I don't have the right USB cable to connect the Helix to the Android directly), the MIDI Commander MIDI Monitor window shows:

"ControlChange cable: 0, channel: 4, function: 82, value:127"

In other words, exactly what you see, with one critical change - the MIDI channel.

** MIDI Commander counts the MIDI channel from 0, whereas BH and Helix count from 1, so what MIDI Commander says is channel 4 is actually channel 5 for everyone else in the equation...

So, this is a long way of getting around to saying that I'm pretty sure all you need to do is configure BH with a MIDI channel, and then specify that MIDI channel in your Helix command center programming.

And to test it, I got out of MIDI Commander, ran BH, opened up my set list to the first song, pressed the Helix button - and it works as expected.

Hopefully, the attached screenshot makess the Helix setup and MIDI monitor (on my PC) clear. Sorry, not sure how to show the screenshots from my Android.

Ok, progress....finally...sorta.....

I updated my Helix to v2.8, yay.....not that that had anything to do with it.

I tried using USB cord to laptop and the MIDI tracking for the laptop/windows and couldnt get anything to show up in the MIDI logs....using the USB cable or the Midi 2x2....

Thought I'd try the tablet and see what I get.  Tried the Midi link and USB with the BH app open, and got no response within the app....

Then I tried the MIDI Commander app and once I got the right screen up, I'm getting some sort of feedback (visual, not audible...)  when I cycle through the 4 stomp buttons I have setup....I get messages that state the same thing except for the 'Function' number changing to the CC number I had chosen.  The message is stating,

"ControlChange cable: 0, channel: 0, function: 83/82/82/80, value:127"

My only thought would be the value of 127 is incorrect maybe?  or i'm not choosing the right CC#'s. 

Any help?  I have recently converted all my songs/chords/lyrics to .pdf files and would like to reverse/advance songs with 2 buttons and also scroll down/up with the other 2 stomps I have available.

That doesn't sound normal. Can you take a video showing the problem? Then submit a help ticket and include the video.

Hi there...I recently bought the bt200s-2 so that I can step through my set list and also so that I can switch to my monitor mix app and still be able to step through my set list in the background. I’m using it in airdirect mode and it is working, but my question is this: when setlistmaker is in the foreground and I step to the next song, the entire screen flashes like its reloading the app. It moves to the next song, but instead of just moving down the list, it has the distracting flashing of the screen. Is this normal or do I need to configure something differently to make it move down the list “smoothly” without the distracting flashing of the screen?  Thanks, Joe

Dear Arlo!

How do I port the documents from SLM to Bandhelper? It only exports the setlist with the method above.

Many thanks, best
Duplo

Nevermind, I'm a complete dunderhead.  I was monitoring the wrong MIDI input.  After I was looking at the right input, it worked pretty easily.  Sorry for the false alarm.  :(
