Helix and GCX

Hey all
Looking to drive changes on my GCX from my Line 6 Helix.
Looking at the GCX manual its littered with warnings about connecting anything other than the Ground Control to the midi in on the GCX as pins 1 and 3 are powered.

Does anyone know if the midi out on the Helix has pins 1 and 3 connected and if it's OK to connect to the midi in on the GCX?

Thanks

Matt.

Sorry for the delay, we were closed over the last 10 days or so for the holidays.

I am not sure about pins 1 and 3 on the Helix MIDI Out... you may want to contact Line 6 about that.

Not all MIDI cables actually wire all five pins so, if you can, check your MIDI cable for continuity. Maybe you don't have to worry about it anyway ;)

Another option is to simply cut pins 1 and 3 out of at least one end of the MIDI cable just to be certain.

I hope that helps!
