Helix HX and JVM410HJS midi channel change


hi all,

I ve got a helix hx I am trying to use for channel swap on the amp.


For all of the above the following applies:

- JVM footcontroller is disconnection

- JVM midi has been reset: its on MIDI channel 1


Boss ES5 (works)

I can get it working using a Boss ES5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3YI65cgA4XI

Midi cable setup: Boss ES5 (out)  > JVM (IN)

 Also going from Boss through the helix (midi passthrough works).

Midi cable connection:  Boss ES 5 (out) > Helix (IN) > Helix (out) > JVM

However, this is using Midi patch panel change. Not sure how this differs from MIDI CC?


Helix HX (not working)

For Helix im following this video : https://youtu.be/simaPS7dzLw?t=55

Midi cable connection:   Helix (out) > JVM

Im using MIDI CC and following the table in JSH User manual.

channel : 1

Function: CC: 16

value 2

= clean channel, Orange mode.


I set the amp up so that the midi controller is BLINKING and it doesnt stop blinking: its not receiving the signal?

I feel like Im close to getting there.


Any ideas?
