HX Stomp won't change banks on MC6

Hi, Newbie to MIDI, I’m having an issue trying to get my HX Stomp to changes the banks on my MC6.
I’ve watched the Morningstar tutorial on two-way communication and everything is set up correctly,
I’ve checked the cables and every other setting I thought relevant, still no joy.
With the cables connected (Ins and outs) my stomp stalls on the open bank, so when I change the bank using the top knob it immediately jumps back to the bank I started on, it also jumps back to a specific bank whenever I try to change banks using the MC6 in this case always jumps back to bank 41.
I made sure the MIDI thru on the stomp is off, but there does seem to be some kind of loop it’s getting stuck in.
Anyone else had this issue or have a suggestion?
The software is all up to date (not Beta).
Thanks in advance.

Did you turn off the MIDI Thru on the MC6 as well? You’ll need to turn it off

Hi James,
Did both of these, I have managed to get it to work but only for a few seconds, i was scrolling through but after about 4 presets it reverted back to the start bank & got caught in a loop again.
I have set up my MC6 to open banks on the Stomp by assigning pages.
Do you think that could a problem?


I am also having same issue on MC8. Specifically, this started when I attempted to get MC8 to sent PC message on Bank Enter. I set Bank 1 to sent PC # 1 on Enter, Bank 2 to sent PC #2 etc. I entered PC #s 1 thru 12 for HX Stomp banks 001 thru 012. When I turn the top knob of stomp to change presets, regardless of selection returns to Preset 012 and sets MC8 bank to 13. I can then bank down to MC bank 12 but next MC 8 bank down command causes stomp to stay at 012 and mc8 to return to 13.
If I set an MC8 button to emulate FS4 and FS5, I can get Stomp and MC8 to bank in sync, but have run into instances where Stomp presets are not in sync with MC8 banks, so I was hoping to use Bank messages instead of FS4/5 emulation so that I could use FS4 & 5 for footswitch mode, and have each MC8 bank send Bank PC messages to the Stomp and change.
I just started playing with this setting tonight - I’ll keep working on it and if I find the fix will repost here.

So, I continue to add PC#s on bank enter, Bank 1 = PC1 ghru Bank 30 = PC 30 on enter (in order to do it , HX Stomp is off) - once I turn stomp on it now auto scrolls to preset 30, so this loop will auto scroll to highest PC#

I finally was able to figure out what I was doing wrong when setting up my MC8 to switch HX stomp preset when changing MC8 banks. The HX Stomp will sned out a PC value when changing presets, and my MC8 will receive that value. When the HX sent PC 000 out, my MC8 would see it and change to Bank 1, where I had set bank 1 to send PC 001 instead of 000, so every time my MC8 sead change to bank 1, the stomp would enter preset 001 which would sent PC value 001 out and my MC8 would then enter bank 2 and send value 002 - each pedal was telling the other to go to the next bank! (I was trying to make HX preset 001 = MC8 bank 1, but my attempt to do this resulted in the bank PC value loop).
Once I made my PC value sent by MC8 bank 1 to = 000 instead of 001, I am now able to “Bank up” and “Bank Down” on either device WITHOUT HAVING TO USE the VALUABLE FS4 and FS5 functions!!! (as we say in Massachusetts, this is wicked important! - I should post a video - THAT important!!).
Now, preset UP and DOWN on the HX Stomp, or scrolling the top knob on the HX changes presets on the HX and changes banks at the same time on the MC8. More importantly, I don’t have to needlessly use two valuable preset switches on the MC8 or emulate FS4/5 for Bank change because the MC8 Bank UP and Bank Down now change the preset on the Stomp!
I will repost this as “How to change Bank Presets on the HX Stomp via Bank UP/Down on the MC8”. This will allow me to more appropriately save the FS4 for another Stomp preset and save FS5 for my Mission Control foot pedal.
