Q: How can I connect the device to iPhone or IPad for the use of software effects, such as Bias Fx, Jam up?
A: We need a cable called iOS OTG cable to connect the standard USB plug with the connector. After connecting, enable the MIDI control in the Apps. It can work together with any other audio interface to use software effects, you can connect by a USB Hub to join the audio interface and the MIDI Commander. Another way is connecting to the audio interface through the MIDI IN jack (Such as TS MINi in Tone Shifter Series).
Q: How do I program the switches for banks after the first one as there only seems to be one set of settings, one for each switch?
A: MIDI control can be achieved if the command number in the app is consistent with the command number set by our customization. In the current version, each footswitch can only send one set command in the custom mode. In bank1, footswitch A to send 01; switch to bank 2 and footswitch A to send 01 again.
Q: Can I send a cc number, and value at the same time? For example, cc#69, value: 2. this is required to change “snapshots” in helix native.
A: The midi commander doesn’t have the function now.
Q: Is this possible to have the midi commander send JUST midi notes to a program in the custom setting?
A: It is not possible so far. Only CC# or PC# can be sent by the midi commander.
Q: Is there a way to set a custom value instead of 0-127 for each switch? I’ve tried to remove toggle but it just went to 127?
A: We are sorry that now it just support 0-127.For the further function, we need further system update.
