I decided to get another guide written and out of the way today before I start getting more focused on music as the nights are now drawing in.
This one shows you how to use the excellent Line6 Helix as a controller for Cantabile, setting up all of the functionality in a linked rack that can be used across the songs in a set list.
The linked rack:
- Listens out for Helix patch changes and links them to Cantabile Song changes;
- Listens to Helix foot switches programmed to provide MIDI Machine Control (MMC) Start and Stop Commands to control the Cantabile Transport;
- List to a Helix foot switch programmed to provide a CC toggle which is used to select different song states within Cantabile.
I hope the guide is found to be useful. Even if you do not have Helix, the techniques are applicable to other devices. I created this Helix Rack quite a few years ago, but with recent Cantabile additions since then I have been able to improve and simplify the rack, and it was a good way to learn about some of the new Cantabile features.
