I’m trying to control LivePrompter from my Helix (Line 6) with no sucess. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. Could you give some exemples on how the LivePrompter.ini should look like (only for Midi in):
MidiInPort=0: Line 6 Helix
I would also like to know if LivePrompter receives CC messages, and not only Programme Changes and Notes.

LivePrompter can also react to CC messages (for MidiInKeys, not for switching songs). As the manual says:
Commands are defined in the following form:
CC x (with x being a number from 1 to 127)
N x (with x being either a number from 0 to 127 or a note descriptor
like C#1 or A‐1 with C4 for “middle C”)
So typical valid commands are “CC 7”, “N C3” or “N 64”
To trigger a key, you need to send a note on with a velocity of > 0
or a controller value of >0
To get your configuration to work, you will need to give the MIDI In port without the number, so it should be:
MidiInPort=Line 6 Helix
Aside from that, of course you’ll have to define the MIDI commands for key input. If you want LivePrompter to react to program changes, you’ll also have to create the “MIDI” subdirectory of your LivePrompter song directory and create a correct “MidiReceive.txt” file that maps program changes to your song files.
This here is the MIDI section of my LivePrompter.ini:
MidiAlwaysSendBankSelect=yes MidiOutPort=iConnectMIDI2+ MidiOutPC=yes MidiInPort=iConnectMIDI2+ MidiInKeys=yes MidiInChannel=omni MidiInKeyPausePlay=CC 66 MidiInKeyUp=CC 67 MidiInKeyDown=CC 68 MidiInKeyNextSong=CC 70 MidiInKeyPrevSong=CC 69 MidiInKeyReset=CC 71
Hope this helps!
