blinking 88 at switch on - without Midi In Connected

ebebr <ebebr@...>
 

Hi,

new in this group and new owner of a used FCB1010. It has Firmware Eprom 2.51E.

I can´t make to reset the FCB reset or to access the Global Configuration.

I´m planning to use the FCB simply as switch for my EXEF 6-shooter MIDI preamp on Channel 1 and a Roland GP 100 on midi channel 2.

For test reasons I´ve set the Roland GP-100 to receive on channel 1 and connected the FCB out with the Roland Midi in.

Switching on the FCB, it shows the famous blinking 88 until - after 20 seconds or so and when I press the UP button - the display changes to blinking 00. Then I`m able to change bank and patch numbers - the display with bank number is still always blinking.

The Roland didn´t received any midi signal and so I tried to reset the unit to factory presets (to be shure to have the FCB sending on channel 1)

The FCB does not recognize any of the reset combinations (1&6, 1&7, 1&8) and also did not switch to the global configuration when pressing the DOWN/ESCAPE button while switching on. - it blinks the 88 as it would be build for...

I tried also to connect the FCB MIDI with my PC Interface and than switch it of again but as expected my FCB still is blinking - blinking - blinking.

Any ideas to get it switching instead of blinking ;-)

Regards,

Elmar


Re: not the easiest to program - get the PC Editor!

(Sorry for getting slightly off topic)

Luke,

If you are using an UnO Firware Chip... I originally tried doing my sysex transfers with just a straight dump to the unit, letting PC Editor just send it (without being in Sysex Receive Mode on the board), but it was hit and miss. I am now doing my sysex transfers by setting my Board to Sysex receive, and I haven't had any issues since. For me, it seems to transfer fine if I am in sysex Receive mode (#7 pedal while in Global config), then doing the transfer(even though the help box over the transmit sysex button reads as though you don't have to set the board to sysex receive with UnO Firmware).

Just some food for thought.

I think its just the nature of the Device. limited control optinos and limited Display options)

Having Also once tried to Program some Peavey Midi FootControl, I'll tell you it was just as tedious and difficult. Well a little easier - but only beause there were less Options! and data types you could send. The difficulty is really due to the complete flxibility.


I've been using the PC Editor a bit last week and it make sit relatively easy to reprogram all the options. - however I am having trouble with the FootControll writing the Sysex Data to Memory. Which is proving quite annoying.


Wopuld have been nice if Behringer could have stuck a USB port on it to directly access the Settings - but that would have put the price up I suppose.

Oh well.

Agree. I feel for the non-engineers who are trying to make it work - a little anyway ;)

 

“having trouble with the FootControl writing the Sysex Data to Memory.”

Whew.  I thought I was just missing something there.  The editor acts like it is writing to the FCB.  No errors. But it won’t actually change the eeprom.  I have the most updated Behringer firmware (did that instead of the uno because I am running a Vampire amp and figured that … oh well -  may not have mattered in this case).

Is there more than one editor available? I can program it by hand, but I would rather not.

Strange behaviour of fcb1010, device broken?

Holger Volk
 

Hi,

i bought a used FCB 1010 which is a half year old.
The firmware (shown in FCB Midi Editor) is Behringer 2.5.1E
I cannot program the board with an software editor because I have the
Asio IO 2 interface which don´t transmit all sysex data to the board.

So I tried to program the board by hand as described in the manual.
I´m comparative sure that I understand how to do that, but the board
behaves totally strange. As a precaution I reset the fcb1010 to
the factory V-AMP settings.

Let me use short words to explain what I want to do.

I have two devices which I want to control per midi.

- Sansamp PSA 1.0
- T.C. electronic G-Major

The Sansamp will be controlled by footswitch 1-5 channel PC1
The G-Major by footswitch 6-10 channel PC2

So I set the global midi channel of the fcb1010 as follow:
PC1 = Channel 1
PC2 = Channel 2

If I now want to program the program changes e.g.
of the preset 6 it behaves strange.

- Pressed footswitch number 6
- Pressed down key longer
- Pressed up key to select modus

Now all footswitch led are on ?
If I press again the up key but now a little longer the leds are now showed correctly ?
If I now deactivate the footswitch all other leds are activated again ?
This behaviour continues after many disorderd attempts by me until it suddenly works ?

Two other strange things lets me believe that the board is broken.

If I e.g. press the footswitch multiple times in series,
suddenly strange midi commands are send.

If I connect the midi in out of the fcb1010 directly and run the self test,
the test itself is ok. If I escape the test and let the direct loop connected
the fcb1010 display is flickering and pressing of different buttons is delayed.
There seems a lot of nonsense midi traffic now?

So am I to stupid to get this working or is the fcb1010 really broken?

Thanks for any help

Hello,

I purchased a used FCB1010 yesterday to primarily use with a Moog Little Phatty. I am fairly new to midi so I expect some issuses to arise. Thanks for all the helpful info.

Hello Dave,

I consider myself to be fairly competent technically, but I really struggled with the FCB. Unfortunately for someone like me,who is new to Midi controlled equipment, there seems to be nothing on the web which explains in simple terms how to programme this unit to do basic things such as switch amplifier channels and control multi-effects. Also, the manual is not the clearest!
it's not just the manual.

I can say I have lots of experience with those kind of things. I've used hundreds of different MIDI devices in my life. I've started dealing with synths and such in about 1986.

I've seend a lot of bad implemented user interfaces but Behringer did it really bad on the FCB.

Congratulations for your explanation. It would really help me two years ago... LOL

Best regards,

Brusque

Re: FCB1010 wah and volume on seperate pedals

Mike
 

Keneth,

Page 14 of the GMX manual indicates that CC#7 is for volume, and CC#27 is for wah.

You must configure each FCB1010 preset as follows:

EXP A
# = 7
min = 0
max = 127
EXP B
# = 27
min = 0
max = 127

Refer to the FCB1010 user manual for instructions indicating "how" to enter these values for each preset.

Have you heard of the PC Editor?

mike


Re: FCB1010 wah and volume on seperate pedals

Kenneth Clark <kenneth@...>
 

All sounds simple in theory but in practise I have no cooking clue how to do that! The only reason I bought the FCB1010 initially was to avert the delay between switching channels. Now I wanna start trying to get my money’s worth from the unit J I found a tut on the groups messages so will give that a bash and hassle everyone if it doesn’t work.

 

Have a good one

Expression Pedal A stops working after changing other buttons to midi note

nathancroy
 

Just got an FCB1010 and i'm having a bit of an issue here with Guitar Rig. I changed button 1 in bank 00 to midi note so i could use it to change individual functions within presets, however now expression pedal A only sweeps ~1/100th of the distance it used to. Expression pedal B moves the slider all the way from left to right in Guitar Rig, however A just makes the slider twitch, barely any movement. I reset to factory presets and tried again and recalibrated the pedals, but the issue still pops up as soon as midi note is assigned. What exactly is the issue here and how can i fix it? Thanks.

Global Configuration -

Following on from my piece on setting up the presets, here's how to set up the midi channels your presets will be transmitted on:

Global configuration allows you to set several things, but the most important is to set what MIDI channel your Midi functions are transmitted on. If your midi functions transmit on a different channel to the one being received by your equipment, nothing is going to happen when you press your footpedals! (unless the equipment is set to receive on all Midi channels). Also, you might want to control several pieces of equipment at once, or separately, on different midi channels!

To set the midi channel for midi functions (such as programme change commands, Expression pedals, midi note data, etc) we first of all have to enter the global config mode. To do this, switch the unit off, then switch it back on again, whilst holding down the "DOWN" footpedal for about 3 seconds. The LED next to "DIRECT SELECT" will be illuminated. Press the "UP" footswitch. The LED will move to "MIDI FUNCTION", and will flash.

Now if you press a footswitch, the LED will flash on that footswitch, and the MIDI channel programmed for that midi function will be displayed. (The midi function is written above the pedal number). For example if you press pedal 1, the Midi channel for PROG CHG1 will be displayed. This has nothing to do with pedal No. 1, or preset 1, in this mode the unit is merely displaying the midi channel configured for the midi function written on the pedal you have just pressed. To change the midi channel, press the "UP" pedal once. The number in the display flashes, and the LED next to "MIDI CHANNEL" becomes lit. Also the LED on the pedal goes out. You can now enter a new midi channel by pressing the pedals corresponding to the channel number you want to enter. For example, if you want to select channel 3, you would press pedal (1)0, followed by 3. Press the "UP" pedal to confirm the selection. The LED moves on to "CONFIG". We don't need this at this stage, so to
programme the midi channel for another function, simply press the "DOWN" pedal so that "MIDI FUNCTION" is flashing again.

Repeat the above process until all the midi functions you want to use (including EXP pedals) are programmed to the desired channel. Remember, if they are not programmed to the same channel as the equipment you are controlling, nothing will happen when you press the preset pedal you have programmed to do your programme changes etc.

In this way, you could, for example, set programme change 1 (PROG CHG1) to change the channel on your amp, whilst setting programme change 2 (PROG CHG2) to change the patch on your multi-effects. If you put the programme change commands on different midi channels, you can make the 1010 control both pieces of equipment separately!

Finally, exit GLOBAL CONFIG by pressing and holding the "DOWN" pedal.

If your midi functions transmit on a different channel to the one being received by your equipment, nothing is going to happen when you press your footpedals! (unless the equipment is set to receive on all Midi channels). Also, you might want to control several pieces of equipment at once, or separately, on different midi channels!

To set the midi channel for midi functions (such as programme change commands, Expression pedals, midi note data, etc) we first of all have to enter the global config mode. To do this, switch the unit off, then switch it back on again, whilst holding down the "DOWN" footpedal for about 3 seconds. The LED next to "DIRECT SELECT" will be illuminated. Press the "UP" footswitch. The LED will move to "MIDI FUNCTION", and will flash.

Now if you press a footswitch, the LED will flash on that footswitch, and the MIDI channel programmed for that midi function will be displayed. (The midi function is written above the pedal number). For example if you press pedal 1, the Midi channel for PROG CHG1 will be displayed. This has nothing to do with pedal No. 1, or preset 1, in this mode the unit is merely displaying the midi channel configured for the midi function written on the pedal you have just pressed. To change the midi channel, press the "UP" pedal once. The number in the display flashes, and the LED next to "MIDI CHANNEL" becomes lit. Also the LED on the pedal goes out. You can now enter a new midi channel by pressing the pedals corresponding to the channel number you want to enter. For example, if you want to select channel 3, you would press pedal (1)0, followed by 3. Press the "UP" pedal to confirm the selection. The LED moves on to "CONFIG". We don't need this at this stage, so to
programme the midi channel for another function, simply press the "DOWN" pedal so that "MIDI FUNCTION" is flashing again.

Repeat the above process until all the midi functions you want to use (including EXP pedals) are programmed to the desired channel. Remember, if they are not programmed to the same channel as the equipment you are controlling, nothing will happen when you press the preset pedal you have programmed to do your programme changes etc.

In this way, you could, for example, set programme change 1 (PROG CHG1) to change the channel on your amp, whilst setting programme change 2 (PROG CHG2) to change the patch on your multi-effects. If you put the programme change commands on different midi channels, you can make the 1010 control both pieces of equipment separately!

Finally, exit GLOBAL CONFIG by pressing and holding the "DOWN" pedal.


Setting FCB1010 to send MSB LSB CC values to get finer control of parameters

lukedsico <lukedsico@...>
 

Hi,

I just got my FCB1010 Yesterday. I'm trying to use it to Control Ableton Live.

One of my first issues is that I want to Use the send Midi CC to Control the Tempo of Ableton.

So this is ok, I set it up to Send Continuous Controller Number #16 - value of X when I press 1, and value Y when i press 2 And I can change between two different Tempos in Ableton.

The problem this is that I can only seem to send values of 1,2,3,..127 which doesn't give me fine enough control of the Tempo in Ableton to get Ableton to be Exactly 100 BPM. (midi CCs are mostly 7-bit right?)

Ableton maps 1- 127 to a range of 60 - 200 BPM

ie
CCval 35 = BPM 98.58
CCval 36 = BPM 99.69
CCval 37 = BPM 100.79
CCval 38 = BPM 101.89

But I'm reading about this MSB / LSB stuff for Midi Controllers and thought I could use the Second CC slot to send a LSB value to get finer control on the BPM to exactly 100?

Does anyoen know what I'm talking about?

davederrick15,
 
You're doing a GREAT job with this. I vote it should be added to the files section. Very clear and informative. Much better than the manual.
