I'm working on that as well, though I'm probably going to go with an ESP32.  If you decide to go with Bluetooth MIDI, as you mentioned you will need to get the antenna out of the case.  I'm wondering if I can just hide it under the plastic display.  It's pretty open under there if you aren't using the stock LED indicators. 

I have the Feather M0, and it connects via Bluetooth to MIDI on my iPad with no problem using the test program that comes with Adafruit's Bluetooth support library.  I desperately wanted to program this with Python, and that is in the works, but not fully supported on the Bluetooth Feathers yet.  Which is why I'm thinking of moving to the ESP32.  Keep us updated.

Thanks for this.

I have been rethinking recently and have thought it would be easier to pop an Arduino in instead... Bluetooth MIDI sounds like it might be a good idea too however the metal case might interfere with the signal?

Might grab a large arduino first for prototyping, and get a proper small board at a later date.

(Don't expect fast progress on this, lol, I'll be going slow :P)

Thanks to Roger, we now have the UnO group included as well.  For those who don't know, I have been a main group member since 2004 and the owner and creator of the UnO group.

Although I'm not a regular participant, I can't tell you how useful everyone here was when I first put an Uno in my FCB1010.  CUDOS and thanks for moving this great resource.

We appreciate you. When I say Us, I mean I obviously, but somehow I feel Thousands of Souls are backing me up this one...

I wanted to do the same thing but decided to just buy a Eureka EPROM and use it in IO mode. It freed me up to actually build the software that solved my use case for the pedal by communicating via midi. If you’re just doing this for experimental / learning purposes, then I’ll be really interested to read your findings, but if you’re trying to actually make the pedal useful for yourself, you’ll save a lot of time and probably money by spending 30bucks on the EurekaPROM chip.

good luck!

A word from the list founder. "Wow" #admin #announcement

Mike Whitaker
 

I say again, wow.

Your grizzled list founder here. I am still utterly boggled that after 17 1/2 years this list is still going, still helping people and has over 13,000 members. 

Back in 2002 (when I created the sadly neglected page that I promise I will update over XMas), it was very much 'wow, this thing is really cool. but it looks like it can be a trifle tricky to get working - maybe we need a resource?" Since then my personal rig has gone from an 8U rack of doom (controlled, obviously, by the FCB-1010), via a valve amp and half a dozen pedals to a GK3 fitted Strat and a GR-55, and several other points in between: during the valve amp phase I found I wasn't using the FCB1010 (obviously enough) and hadn't the time to commit, so I found (or actually, I think they poked me and volunteered) a couple of mods to help me out.

Back in 2015 I wound up MD-ing a fantasy rock musical ("Before The Dawn") from the guitar chair for the World Science Fiction convention in London, and needing a lot of patch changes on the GR-55 - "hmm," thinks I, |ther's an FCB-1010 in the music room somewhere". This list, and the software contributions from people that have been made possible by this list, saved my bacon :D I even managed to set up two spare patch pedals as page up and down on On Song to control my music!

I'd like to publicly thank Roger, the stefenator, Gaghe and BachOntoThis for keeping the flag flying, and particularly Roger for managing this transition - and all of you (including the folks from Behringer who may be quietly lurking in the background) for making this a great community for a great product. I will be around a bit more, certainly during the fallout from the transition, to help out with moderating chores.

Let's keep rocking!

Thank you everyone that made this possible. I absolutely did not have the band width to deal with this and was ready to let it go. I'm a schlepp that watched it all happen but I'd like to give a shout to everyone that invested in other peoples' growth. You are gems of society and I most sincerely do not mean that lightly. I've had my FCB dialed in for years now and don't need anything here. I try to help when I can but there are so many others here that know their schtuff.

Cheers

Brilliant work Roger! 

I'm very much an outsider (just can't get the time to deep dive into my fab FCB1010) but I know how much time these things can take to organise so THANK YOU from me for moving things forward in challenging times!

Re: Member transfer and payment steps?

Hi Francine (and others),

First of all, there's no point in registering at the new GIO group as it should happen automatically when the transfer is complete and, besides, there's no content there yet.

Once we've moved, you'll find the Donations tab. Upon clicking you will see the request to cover Forum Costs. What's also displayed is the running total and number of donations already made.

Thanks for your support!

Now we must wait and hope that we're somewhere well-placed in the queue and will not suffer any consequences of Y!G having technical issues with our data! It may take several days ...

Also, late this afternoon, I'm pleased to report that in our GIO group I created a subgroup for FCB1010_UnO. The group's owner, Chris, was very helpful and provided me with elevated moderator status (as I have here) in order to begin the transfer process for them.

Member transfer and payment steps?

Should we lurkers who love you guys :) now apply for membership at GIO where there will be a donation link, or did I misunderstand how to contribute. Anxious to help reimburse your outlay ASAP.  Francine.
