Re: Ableton Live control using the FCB1010

gandywander <gandywander@...>
 

Hi Rik,

I'm trying to get set up so I can sample/loop/process my saxophone and my girlfriend's voice in live performance, trigger prerecorded samples, enable/disable effects and control their parameters with the expression pedals. Also I want to be able to stack up, say, a five layer loop, then disable/rerecord particular loop layers individually while playing saxophone.

I can't even get basic mapping to work on the FCB, at first I was afraid mine was defective! Pedals 1-8 do send a signal to Ableton, and can be mapped, but when I then disable midi mapping view and try to use the mappings, Ableton doesn't actually do the things that I have mapped it to do. If I click on those same commands, Ableton behaves normally.

Furthermore, the expression pedals don't seem to send any midi to Live at all! (the little yellow light in the top-right corner does not blink)

I think the setup Chris has devised using Bome's midi translator will be more efficient than configurations without Bome's -- because Bome's can translate one pedalstroke into a sequence of commands = less riverdance. But I still want to know why basic mapping was so simple for you, and not for me!

Hi Chris,

I would VERY MUCH like to hear your solution for configuring the FCB1010 and Bome's Midi Translator for use with Ableton. I've actually already got Bome's -- Since I saw that video with Kid Beyond, I figured it would be necessary. No idea how that works either unfortunately.

I'm on a Mac, but hopefully that's not a problem. If you used Windows-specific stuff to do this, then I'll borrow a PC - After reading other posts on the subject, I know I'll never figure this thing out myself!

I have developed a solution that provide complete control over Ableton Live BUT if requires using an additional software product called Bome's Midi Translator.

The Bome's Midi Translator software is very inexpensive and does not require a lot of system resources. My experience is primarily focused on the Windows OS.

If anyone is interested in exploring this option further please send me a reply. I would certainly be open to assisting users to gain the control they need over their software/hardware set-up.

Hi guys,
I play electric/midi guitar, mi rig is:

Casio Mg510 guitar midi output-->FCB1010 midi input-->FCB1010 midi output--> Korg Microkorg Module.

And theaudio otput of the guitar goes to an amp.

The question is: How can I play a chord, then press a pedal, the sound module sounds this chord and stop the midi data entry (while im soloing with the audio output of the guitar) then i leave the pedal (or press another one) and the midi data goes again to the sound module.
The behaviour is like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJMGfrIiV-k (from 1:59 time)

I got to use the hold controller 64, but the problem is that it doesnt stop the midi dataflow, and i think that send note off messagge so the notes vanish.

Thanks for your help!!

sorry for my english

RAM Chip replacement

dudicus197923
 

Can anyone provide me with information about how to replace the RAM chip in an FCB1010 as from reading a few posts around here it seems like mine is toast.

I was getting the flashing 8.8. on power up with the original EPROM chip, with no MIDI cables connected. I then bought an UNO chip and (very carefully) installed it to see if it would solve it. Now I'm getting flashing 8.8 instead of 8.8.

With both chips it would not enter Global Config and is sending irregular messages when monitored in MIDI-OX. It does make the Midi light on my AXE-FX come on when switches are pressed but nothing else happens.

Programming FCB1010 with Ableton

Ale Toledo <ladje_rano@...>
 

Hello everyone,

After months of frustration with trying to get my FCB to work with Ableton, I've finally stumbled to a solution that worked for me. It involves getting a PC editor to actually work with the FCB, but once that is sorted, all you have to do is program it to your liking.
Here it is:

In that PC editor (mountain systems) - go to the help file and look for a link called USE EXAMPLES.........which explains more clearly how to jump thru the hoops of sending and receiving the sysex. Here's the text, hope that helps. I couldn't have programmed the FCB without this.

quote:
Creating a SysEx file from your FCB1010 involves the following hardware and software:

¨ FCB1010 pedal
¨ MIDI input and output cables
¨ PC running Windows 95 or later (yeh righT  )
¨ MIDI hardware adapter to bring MIDI data into your PC

Connect a MIDI cable to the FCB1010 MIDI out connector. Connect the other end to the MIDI in connector on your PC MIDI adapter. uhhh

While pressing the DN button on the FCB1010, turn the FCB1010 on. Continue holding the DN button for at least 5 seconds, which puts the FCB1010 in global setup mode. Then press the UP button 2 times, which should turn on the Config light on the FCB1010. This process is explained in some details in the FCB1010 manual in section 2.5.2.

The FCB1010 is now ready to send or receive MIDI SysEx data. Now start the PC Editor.

1. Press the Receive SysEx button on the PC Editor

1. Press the 6 button on the FCB1010
2. This sends the SysEx data to the PC
3. This process takes about 5 seconds

1. Use the Write SysEx button to save your result to a PC file

At this point your FCB1010 SysEx data is stored on your PC in the path you specified and using the file name you input.

You may now make changes in your FCB1010 programming as desired. When done, use the steps below to save your result and load the SysEx data back to your FCB1010.

Loading a SysEx File To the FCB1010

Loading a SysEx file to your FCB1010 involves the following hardware and software:

¨ FCB1010 pedal
¨ MIDI input and output cables
¨ PC running Windows 95 or later
¨ MIDI hardware adapter to bring MIDI data into your PC

Connect a MIDI cable to the FCB1010 MIDI in connector. Connect the other end to the MIDI out connector on your PC MIDI adapter.

While pressing the DN button on the FCB1010, turn the FCB1010 on. Continue holding the DN button for at least 5 seconds, which puts the FCB1010 in global setup mode. Then press the UP button 2 times, which should turn on the Config light on the FCB1010. This process is explained in some details in the FCB1010 manual in section 2.5.2.

The FCB1010 is now ready to send or receive MIDI SysEx data. Now start the PC Editor and load any saved PC SysEx file you have saved from previous editing.

1. Press the 7 button on the FCB1010
2. This sets the FCB1010 waiting for SysEx data

1. Press the Transmit SysEx button on the PC Editor

1. Wait about 10 seconds
2. Press the DN button on the FCB1010 pedal

1. Continue holding the DN button for at least 30 seconds

1. You should see the FCB1010 display count down from 10 to 01
2. When all lights stop changing, the process is complete
3. Turn the FCB1010 off, then turn it back on again
4. Test to be sure your new settings are working correctly

Note: Step 6 is very important to be sure all banks and patches are correctly update. This process will take at least 30 seconds.

Note 2: Some MIDI gear and setups will have problems during steps 8-13 if the MIDI In connector is still connected. If you encounter this problem, disconnect the MIDI In connector after step 7 is completed.

If you don't have luck following the Fractal's "Learn" procedure, then you have some heavy lifting ahead of you.

I believe there are 3 distinct parts to the programming, and you may need to construct a chart, or perhaps use the software editor that is supplied for Fractal Axe-Fx users.

Part 1: mapping out the control parameters for what the Fractal will "SEE" from the FCB1010 in terms of MIDI control change, and how the Fractal will process this information. You must go to the I/O Configuration menu to do this.

Here's an example:

Set the Fractal's MIDI Receive channel to 1. Then, in the I/O Configuration under "Control Configuration" (this is KEY!), you need to set, for example, the Fractal's EXTERNAL 1 controller (there are a total of 8 external controllers) to react when a Control Change Number (CC#) is received (that is, sent from the FCB). Set this to receive Control Change #30 (this should work fine, or use any available control change #). Do the same thing to assign Fractal's EXTERNAL 2 controller to respond to CC#31.

Part 2: set up the FCB1010 to transmit MIDI on Channel 1, and assign the FCB's Expression Pedal A to send Continuous Control data on CC#30 (to match what you've done above), and likewise set the FCB's Expression Pedal B to transmit CC values on CC#31. (The programming of the FCB1010 is tricky for first time users, and a bit cryptic. I don't have time to go into the details of how this is done, so this is probably where you'll have much of your work cut out for you. If the programming of the FCB is not done properly at this stage, you'll be lost. Consult the FCB1010 owner's manual and read read read again.)

When this is done properly, this is what happens: nothing...yet! But when you rock Expression A of the FCB, the Fractal's EXTERNAL 1 controller should receive MIDI continuous control values.

The final step 3: correlate the Fractal's EXTERNAL 1 to control the functions of parameters within a Preset patch in the Fractal. I'm not a Fractal owner, but there should be a grid of some kind that allows you to link EXTERNAL 1 to various parameters that exist in the current patch. For example, if you have a compressor at the front end of your patch creation, you should be able to assign EXTERNAL 1 to control the Compressor's Input Level, or Output Level, which will have the effect of making the link between the " FCB Exp A pedal --> Fractal EXTERNAL 1 control --> Compressor Input Level " act as a volume control.

- NOTE: NOW THAT I READ THIS, YOU MAY WANT TO SWAP STEP 2 FOR STEP 1 -

I understand that this sounds convoluted and complicated, and it IS. But, the reality is that someone could show you how this works in about 5 minutes, and you'd understand the "How it works" part pretty quickly. The toughest part is drudgery of learning the programming of the FCB and the Fractal so that they all "talk" to each other properly via MIDI.

Have at it, and don't give up. Once you've uncovered the mystery of using the FCB1010 in combo with the Axe-FX, you'll be amazed at the flexibility of control you have.

My first post here, so be gentle.

I only had this '88' issue when my midi input was connected while powering up. Solution: first power up, then connect midi in.

I'm using original firmware and I haven't check the version, but it's at least 2.4.

I have an FCB1010 and it has the flashing '88' issue on power up. At first I could not enter Global configuration mode by holding DOWN while powering up. This was quite frustrating, but I found a way to do it, so, I am posting it here incase anybody else has the same issue.

While powering up, hold down the 5 button, the display flashes '.8.8'
When the display changes to flashing '8.8', release the 5 pedal and hold the DOWN pedal (this change must be done fairly quickly).

The FCB1010 should now enter Global Config mode (it seems to work almost every other time for me).

I hope this helps some users out as it did for me!

Best Regards,
Nigel

Hi All,

I've been away from this forum for a couple years but it seems that there is still a lot of problems using the FCB1010 to control Ableton Live.

I have developed a solution that provide complete control over Ableton Live BUT if requires using an additional software product called Bome's Midi Translator.

The Bome's Midi Translator software is very inexpensive and does not require a lot of system resources. My experience is primarily focused on the Windows OS.

If anyone is interested in exploring this option further please send me a reply. I would certainly be open to assisting users to gain the control they need over their software/hardware set-up.

It does appear to also work under windows as well.

Havent been following the thread but this is what I use to control my Ableton rig with OSX and it works great. Great solution for OSX but don't think it works for Windows.
