First, make sure that the fcb is transmitting using a Midi
Monitor such as MidiOx. It's not clear from your question what it is that
you're trying to do. The fcb is simply a PC/CC sending unit. I did a quick
search, and it seems that you need to assign a PC# to a preset in Kemper, and
that the effects are controlled by pre-assigned CC#s. By default the fcb sends
only PC#s, Bank 00=PC#001-010 (or is it 000-009 - I haven't had a stock fcb
for a long time), Bank 01= 011-020, etc.. You'll need to assign specific
pedals to send specific CC#s if that's what you want. In other words, once
you've established that the fcb is working and what's being sent by the
buttons (don't forget to calibrate the expression pedals), then it's RTM time.
Also, if you don't already have one, get an editor for the fcb. It'll make
life SO much easier. However, it was me I'd get the UNOKemper chip.

Subject: [fcb1010] FCB1010 into a Kemper
Hi Guys,I must say I'm usually pretty savy with amps,
cabs, guitars, setups, etc. but this foot controller is the death of
I can't get it working at all. I have the FCB connected to the
kemper via midi from the FCB's midi out to the Kemper's midi in. I have them
both set on channel 1 so they'll talk and, tried making some presets and no
connection whatsoever. When i try making more presets or programming it seems
to cause the kemper to have a fuzzy/crackly sound when I strum and then causes
the kemper to have some kind of an error and I have to restart.
kemper has the latest firmware on it
The fcb has the standard chip and
does not have the uno. The chip in the fcb is version 2.5
I've been playing with it for 3 hours and nothing..
