Send PC Line6 Helix song start

Is there a way to send a Program Change to my Line6 Helix to change the preset when I switch to a new song in my set list in Cantabile? I’m using Solo.

Hi. I actually do it the other way around in that I use the Helix Command Centre to send changes to Cantabile.

But it should be easy to do it the other way round. As you use Solo, you should be able to set a binding that triggers on Song Load to send a patch change to the Helix.

If you are not sure how to do that, let me know and I will do an example for you.

Yes please. I’ve had a try but got lost.

The Helix manual says
In the illustration above, the FACTORY 1 setlist is recalled with a CC32 message of 000, the 02B Essex A15 preset is recalled with a PC (program change) message of 005, and SNAPSHOT 1 is recalled with a CC69 message of 000.

Sorry, it has been a stupidly long day in work today, and I am flaked out, but I’ll check this thread again tomorrow, and if you haven’t figured it out or somebody else has not given you the solution, then I will get Cantabile and my Helix fired up. I use Cantabile to send MIDI changes to all sorts of other hardware, so it is only a matter of sorting out the correct BANK MSB/LSB/PC messages.

Don’t know about Solo (I use Performer), but a Song Load binding does what you want. See if it works:

Not able to find those bindings in Solo. :sunglasses:

@anointed Solo does support Bindings. And since you mentioned CC32, that means they are Banked Patch Changes. Cantabile will handle just fine. There is a Guide all about them. Also, there are detailed videos some members have posted. There are lots of resources.

You’re correct Solo does support Bindings. It was just that I couldn’t see a Song Load one. Any pointers to narrow the search would be helpful.

Song Load bindings are what used to be called “Triggers” - this type of binding is only available in the Performer edition of Cantabile.



Thanks Torsten. :nerd_face:
