Hi all. I’ve had my new BB pedal for about a week (firmware - 2.0.4) and as yet I’ve had no luck getting it to respond to song change messages from either BandHelper or Set List Maker. I think I’ve ruled out interface and cables - I’m using an iConnectiMIDI1 which I can confirm works fine with my keyboard, both MIDI IN and OUT. I also bought a 2nd BB MIDI breakout cable. Neither of those helped.
So this is what I’ve done, and I would greatly appreciate if somebody would tell me whether I’m going about this the right way.
I’ve connected things like this -
iPad running BandHelper (or SLM) > iConnectMIDI1 MIDI Out > BB breakout cable IN
I created a MIDI preset on BandHelper as follows:
MSB | LSB | Program Change
0 | 0 | 0
(**Checking BandHelper’s MIDI Activity Log, I can see notes generated by BB when it’s playing. So I know there is MIDI output from BB. The only thing I’m not seeing is any response from BB to MIDI IN.)
From what I understand, that should call up the first song in the first folder, right? (I have 3 folders on the BB.) Or is that wrong?
When I test BandHelper’s MIDI preset, the MIDI Status Activity log shows this:
[B]sending data to all ports
Thanks in advance for any help you can give! I’m psyched about this pedal and anxious to get it integrated with my set up.
