Increasing/decreasing the value of a CC with foot switches

Hello all,

I’m just diving into this wonderful platform, it’s great so far! I do have a question, though, here it comes:

I want to assign two foot switches for either increasing or decreasing the value (between 0 and 7) of a CC69 in order to switch between so called snapshots in Helix Native. It’s a kind of variation but then within the plugin. The reason I want to go this route is that I can use my presets in other hosts as well, like in a DAW. Any clues on how to set this up?

Thanks in advance!


Another option: Helix Native exposes a ‘Snapshot Index’ parameter. So if you add a widget to this, you can use Variations set to different snapshots. Then you can map your foot switches to the global up/down in GP to move between them.

The nice thing with this approach is if you use other plugins pre/post Native, then you can change their parameters using the Variations as well.

Oh, and welcome to the forum!

Thanks, rank13! Your response pointed me to read some parts of the manual again and I found a clue over there: CC69-value 8 is the command for ‘plus snapshot’ and CC69-value 9 for ‘minus snapshot’. I fiddled around with the value properties of a widget until I found the right numbers and now it works!

Time will tell if I will end up navigating the native variations from GP or selecting the snapshots from HN directly.

Thanks again!
