I’m trying to control 4 external floor pedals from a Helix floor pedal with midi commands. Doing my best to try and figure it out on my own looking at videos, parameter guides and reference guides etc. One of the floor pedals is the Beatbuddy. The others are the Helix (master), 2 loopers and a guitar synth.
I’m able to generate “functional” midi commands directly from the Helix to the BeatBuddy, but nothing behind the BB reacts to the midi commands that I try to send them. I can’t seem to get the midi command to pass through the BB to the other foot pedals.
I am using separate midi channels for each unit. The Helix is set to Base and I’ve also tried channel 1. It doesnt seem to matter either way. BeatBuddy on channel 1. One looper on channel 2, another looper on channel 3 and the synth pedal on channel 4.
I can bypass the BB and control any and all of the other pedals properly with midi and everything communicates with the Helix (except the bypassed BB), so I’ve determined the BB settings or possibly it’s the “out” cable part of the midi adapter cable has gone bad.
I have also tried setting the BB at the end of the chain of pedals and everything works, including the BeatBuddy. I should probably leave it that way so I don’t have to deal with the frustration, but I’m the kind of person who likes to solve problems.
I was hoping that someone might take a look at my BB settings and tell me if you can see anything wrong.
BB firmware version 4.1.6
System Real Time sync-enable, start-disable, stop-disable
midi channel 1 (tried omni as well)
Note on-enabled, note off-ignored
Midi merge (tried midi through)
Sync-always on, start-disabled, stop-pause and end
notes-disabled (tried enabled)
Thanks in advance
