So, I've scoured the boards and have some unanswered questions.
I'm using a KPA powered rack/controller, and a Helix rack/controller together. KPA for profiles, Helix for effects.
1. Since the Helix controller doesn't have MIDI out (which makes direct control impossible), but the rack does. Is it possible to run a midi cable between each rack unit and then route KPA controls to the Helix floor controller to be used in conjunction? (Snapshots for switching KPA profiles, then mode for switching Helix effects)
2. Is there any risk of damage to the Helix or KPA with the KPA being internally powered?
3. Anything wrong with this routing?
Guitar > Helix guitar input > Helix FX send > KPA front input > KPA direct output > Helix FX return (Helix send/return block inserted along chain) > KPA speaker output > Orange PPC212
Could I switch the KPA input to the rear to clean up the cables, and use the return input instead.
I'm sorry in advance if the answers to these questions are buried in a thread somewhere. I'm nervous, as I've spent basically my entire savings account on this setup. The KPA was bought used, and I'm sure is long out of warranty.
