MIDI Target Manufacturer(s):
I have a LINE 6 HELIX guitar processor.
I've been able to get basic functionality from Midi Designer to the Helix - for example a button to change Helix preset or snapshots for example. This works.
What I want, however, is to display my currently loaded Helix patch number on Midi Designer.
When you change patches on the Helix, it automatically sends a CC #32 <value> (this is a set-list number) and PC value (this is the preset number within that set list). If i enable the log on Midi Designer, I can see these messages coming in.
I want a label or text box or something on Midi Designer to display the value of that incoming message. In other words, listen for incoming CC#32, and display the value of that and the associated PC that comes with it (which is really the one I'm more interested in).
I can't for the life of me see how to do this seemingly simple thing.
What am I missing?
**update** I have created two "knob" controls, and linked them together using supercontrol mapped to CC32.. and it's actually working. One shows the setlist value, the other shows the patch value - both sending and receiving. If i change patches on the Helix, Mididesigner value changes on the knobs!! This is exactly what I wanted.
However - the "knob" layout has the value in the centre which isn't very big.. is there a way to achieve this so i can have the value text much larger? I've uploaded a copy of the layout for reference.
My ultimate aim here is to have the iPad mounted under my music stand, and when i increment patches with foot switches, the patch number is displayed nice and big on the iPad. It means I have a much bigger and easily viewable reference of my currently loaded patch number (which I will have highlighted/written in my music chart)... without having to take my eyes off the chart to look at the floor.
Basic, but handy
