System Exclusive is not really too difficult once you understand the concept and how to read the reference tables.  What is usually more difficult is finding the right software to convert to the MIDI messages you want for the target device if it doesn't accept what the specific messages your other device sends.

“It looks like the FC-7 actually was not even a MIDI device. “

CORRECT!

 

“The BK7M is and the MIDI implementation document is actually quite extensive.”

If you can suss out the MIDI versions of the FC7 controller commands from that, please post them. I couldn’t. A MIDI Implementation chart is a technical description of what a device is CAPABLE of doing, not HOW to do it.

 

I’m just a simple guitar player with some programming background. I can decipher a user manual written by a techie, but true technical/engineering documents are a mystery to me. The document posted by Rolf might as well be in Chinese for all the sense it makes to me.

 

As far as I can make out, the ability to recall presets and turn things ON/OFF via MIDI is an entirely different matter than the FC7 functions, and I think that it was purposely designed that way to sell FC7s. Which is why it’s such a dirty trick to discontinue the FC7.

Thank You Rolf, for digging up that document. If you ever succeed in finding specific documentation of the sysex messages required for the BK7M, please post that info in the files section. Maybe someday someone will find it useful. However, I seriously doubt that anyone who comes here for help using the FCB1010 (which doesn’t even send sysex) is ever going to read, much less understand well enough to implement, the info therein contained. It’s kind of like the ultimate Rube Goldberg solution. MUCH easier and infinitely more practical to do what OP did – SELL THE STUPID THING!

[Attachment(s) from rolf@... [fcb1010] included below]

Attached is a document that explains the Roland mini SysEx implementation.  Don't try to become an expert in SysEx programming or checksum calculation.  First you need a program to send the commands, to be recorded, to the BK-7M.  I suggest the free BK Partner, available in the Apple Store.  Then you need a program to record the SysEx messages sent, such as, Midi Ox or ForScore. Finally, you need a program to send the saved SysEx message back to the BK-7M real time. I use a IPad with "ForScore" installed.  It can send program changes, song select commands, and Hex code (SysEx messages).  Plus it has a learning mode.  I think you have to have the BK-7M in "thru" mode for this though.

 

That's all for now.  I'll get back to you when I have more experience with sending SysEx commands.  Right now, I like using a foot pedal to control Start/Stop and switching between tones on UP1 and UP2.

I have really read the FC 200 manual as I had a Gt pro and bought it for "manual" mode where it's set up for Gt pro fx on/off add. Have a Kemper now and am certain it can be programmed to work but was quicker to get Uno4 Kemper instead (lazy bugger AM I). May well sit down and try to get it going with the KPA as without a doubt it's better built than the FCB.

Roland doesn't have the FC-200 manual on their web site (was originally developed by Boss). I found a copy somewhere though. Just don't remember where and yes it can put out MMC messages and Realtime Messages as well.


IMO the Roland foot controllers were really pretty much to work with their own equipment and they didn't give much thought to flexibility with other vendors. The FCB-1010 is superior in this regards.


Re: Roland BK7M

Ian Ockwell-smith
 

Up until about 3 Years ago I was using a Boss SE50 with a FC100 mk7 II. I had to have a mmc>midi box as the fc100 only had a mmc socket. It was wwaaaayyyy before I had any knowledge of midi and just left alone. As I remember it was sort of plug and play which wholly supports your theory of Roland product interaction.

Re: Roland BK7M

I’m not doubting you, just trying to get a copy

 

I recently did a lengthy study for someone on the L6 Helix forum on how to get the Helix to call presets on the KPA. Only piece of MIDI equipment I’ve ever seen (the KPA) that requires a calculator and/or a spreadsheet to figure out the PC#s required to load presets!

42. Fortunately for everybody, we didn’t need a Roland manual for that.

 

Roland apparently wants to forget it made the FC-200. No manual on their site, just a “Quick Start Guide” that mentions controllers and notes, but not sysex or anything else useful. The FC-300 manual does confirm that unit can do sysex. But, since we don’t know WHAT sysex might control the MK7M, unfortunate owners of that otherwise quite powerful looking device are SOL for a controller.

Roland, much like Apple, is all about controlling their own ecosystem. As long as you stay with their stuff, everything is guaranteed to work as expected. Unfortunately, they don’t have a great track record when it comes to long term support of their devices. Once they’re discontinued, if you can’t afford to move up to the latest greatest, you’re SOL.

When I said that I searched in vain, did you think that the Roland site wasn’t my first stop? But maybe I just missed it. If you can find that info there or anywhere else, you’d really be doing everyone who might ever buy one of these devices a great service! Maybe even make a sale for BOME or MIDI Solutions.

Most of the Roland MIDI documentation can be found on their support site. I've been able to find details for many of their products there. It is all indexed by product model. Right, if you don't have the device or documentation, no point it wasting your time to try and reverse engineer it.

 

 

 

Specifically, the BK7M info can be found at the link below:

I hope I'm not speaking out of turn but do MMC messages do what's required? I only say this as I have an FC200 that I'm sure I read somewhere can be made to send MMCs. Please ignore if not relevant.

OP has already dumped the BK7M, so this is really a moot point, but you never know when somebody else will want to do this. If you read the rest of this thread, you know that I searched in vain for Roland documentation on just exactly what the BK7M wants to see for it’s transport control commands, whether it’s some special Roland language, MMC or whatever. Buying BOME or any other intermediary device or SW is really a pointless waste of time and money without that info, so I’d be really interested if you can help us all out with that?

 

Thanks!

I would just get a BomeBox and load a a Bome MIDI Translator project file onto it to translate messages from the FCB1010 to whatever messages the BK-7M needs. I'm sure Florian Bomers would make you a deal on this type of package if you just use the Contact Me link on the web site.

 

Or you could use a MIDI Solutions Event Processor to do the translation.
