Re: FCB1010 with BeatBuddy
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Welcome to the group!
I've never used BeatBuddy, so can't give you much in the way of specific advice, but the general answer is, "if you can do it by MIDI, you can do it with the FCB1010"
Looking at the "Tempo Control" section in the BeatBuddy MIDI manual, it looks like to trigger a tempo change you would have to send two CC messages - one to 106 with (tempo / 128) rounded down (x) and another to 107 with (tempo - (128 * x)) , with a min of 40 and a max of 300 (see examples).
As for changing pop/polka/fusion beat, assuming that is a "Song" in BeatBuddy, looks like that needs two CCs and a PC. (See "Folder/Song Select" section in same manual as before). Note that the PC would need to be after the CCs, which I believe Prog Chg 5 is the only one which goes after the CCs.
So for number 1, it looks like it would have to be two separate taps - one to change tempo and one to change program. So you could have "Change to Pop" as pedal 1, "Change to 150BPM" as pedal 2, "Change to Polka" as pedal 3, "Change to 160BMP" as pedal 4 etc.
Number 2 - CC111 controls pause/unpause, I think that will be enough?
Number 3 - Don't know enough about the BeatBuddy to make a call on that, sorry
Number 4 - Increase - CC96 / Val, Decrease - CC97 / Val. Each tap in/decrements by Val BPM. Would have to be two separate pedals
Number 5 - Don't think so. Looks like you can only send a CC with a specific value from 0-100 for the volume.
Number 6 - Nothing in that manual about key changes, so looks like a no, at least from the point of view of doing it via FCB.
If you haven't already, check out this video about programming the presets,
And maybe consider buying FCB Control Center to configure the presets via PC/Mac rather than doing it all manually.
Hope this helps!
