Controlling Two Devices in Daisy Chain

Post by billinbrasil » Sun May 17, 2020 1:11 am

I’m trying to use iMIDIPatchbay to configure my TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 and Line 6 Helix HX Effects units to both accept MIDI information from my iPad, which I intend to use live, once we can get back out there...

I’m connecting the two devices daisy chain style but cannot get iMIDIPatchbay on my iPad to “see” the second device in the chain. If I put the HXFX first, the app controls it just fine but the VL2 doesn’t seem to receive MIDI data. When I switch the devices around, the VL2 work fine but on the HXFX nothing. In both cases, I’ve tried using the MIDI out and the MIDI thru, neither works.

It seems that iMIDIPatchbay doesn’t even “see” the second device in the chain, as the second device is not listed in the extern sections of the app. Switching the devices switches what the app displays.

Any ideas??
TIA
