Re: Cyber-Twin

From the manual, Master Volume uses CC#7 (MIDI Standard).  Then further down, CC#109 also says it is Master volume, Gain is CC#102, and there is a separate volume control assigned to CC#103.  The Gain and Volume controls obviously map to the same controls on the front of the amp.  One or both of the Master Volume CC's will match the Master knob - I'd guess both, but you'll probably have to try it to find out for sure.

So, in the FCB1010 editor, set the pedal you want for volume to CC#07, if you want to control Master volume, or CC 103 for the channel volume.  The Wah is a bit of an issue.  There is no mention in the manual about MIDI control for Wah.  It does mention CC#110 controls "FX Level", with CC#'s 111 through 114 controlling "FX Value 1" through "FX Value 4".  On Page 16 begins a list of all the effects and their editable values, and it even explains FX Level and the FX Values.  So here's my take:  Set Wah to the Active effect on the amp.  You can only control whatever the active effect is.  We're going to use FX Value 1, so the second control in the list.  On the plus side, there looks to be several other effects you could use the same FCB setup for, including rotary, phaser, and tremolo.

In the FCB1010 editor, set the pedal you want to control the Wah to CC#111.  If their list implies what I think it does, when Pedal Wah is the Active Effect, then:

CC#    What it Does when Pedal Wah is Active
====================================
110     Wah amount  (dry/wet?)
111     Wah (std wah pedal?)  <<==== This should be the Wah Pedal frequency sweep.
112     Heel freq.
113     Toe freq.
114     Wah Type

You could use an FCB Footswitch for Wah Type, since there's only two values.  Try setting it to send CC#114 and toggle between 00 and 127 (typical for a toggle using MIDI).  Heal and Toe frequency could also be set using a footswitch - in fact, since each footswitch can send two CC's, one switch can set both.  Choose a footswitch and set the first CC# to 112, then enter a number from 0-127 to represent the Heel frequency.  Set the second CC# to 113 and enter the Toe Freq.  The manual doesn't even try to give a chart of what number maps to what frequency, so you'll have to experiment.  The easiest way is to set the Wah pedal up, connect it to the amp, activate the Pedal Wah effect on the amp and use it.  Watch the numbers in the FCB1010 display.  When you get the low pedal setting where you want it, write down that number.  Same for high setting.  They'll be your Heel and Toe settings, respectively.  I know most people just accept whatever the Wah pedal gives them and use muscle memory to stop where it sounds best, but this would make it a bit easier if the amp sim goes too far in one or both directions for your liking.


Re: expression pedal and continuous controller

I believe that's what I said, the default is 027.
You need to set it to the CC# of the Cyber Twin function that you want to control.
Maybe I'm misunderstanding.
What is it that you're asking?


Re: expression pedal and continuous controller

dvhonk@...
 

I set the cyber twin cc to 27 and the LH pedal will output what ever value is assigned. The RH pedal is always Master volume.

I assume that you're using the default FCB1010 settings. CC#007 is defined as the default volume controller in the MIDI spec, and the Cyber Twin implements it that way, that's why your right pedal controls volume. The left pedal is set by default to CC#027, which is NOT implemented in the Cyber Twin. To use that pedal you'll need to assign it a CC# that IS implemented in the Cyber Twin. Appendix 2 Page 27 of the Cyber Twin SE manual lists the available functions and their CC#s:

CC# Parameter Value Range
07 Master Volume (0 - 127)
32 LSB for Bank Changes (0 - 127)
85 Effects/Reverb Bypass OFF=(0-63), ON=(64-127)
86 Hum Reduction OFF=(0–63), ON=(64-127)

expression pedal and continuous controller

dvhonk@...
 

My question is about my fender cyber twin se and the FCB 1010. The cyber twin talks about an expression pedal assignment and a continuous controller assignment. Can you use the two pedals on the FCB 1010 for this. My outside pedal is master volume and the inner pedal can be programed as a continuous controller. I learned how to use a preset to turn on the turner/mute and press it again to go back to the preset you were on. I need help with MIDI stuff.

i am unsure whether you can turn it off with the same PC# or if you just simply go back to another patch to exit the tuner
Yes you can. You have to select a sacrificial preset like 10 or 100. I changed mine to #10 top row on the right end. Press once to turn on and again to turn off. I am new to the group and not sure of the rules. My questions are about the 2 Expression Pedals and how to set them up.

Put one of each into a GR5 preset. Make sure you've activated the Exp Pedals by selecting an FCB Preset that contains them.
On the left side of the UI, select OPTIONS.
At the bottom of the Controllers Window select ADD CONTROLLER.
From the CONTROLLER MENU, select your device and the PEDAL parameter. 
Click LEARN (button highlights). Operate the EXP Pedal. Learn will go OFF, indicating that the setting has been learned.
When you operate the assigned pedal the slider on the device image will move.
SAVE THE PRESET!

SHORTCUT:
You can also just right click on the device's slider, and click LEARN and in the following dialog box click OK. This will create the controller.
SAVE THE PRESET!
If you want to make a controller GLOBAL (appears automatically in EVERY PRESET), Click the Controller's MENU and click LOCK.
A little LOCK Icon will appear in the Controller's Title Bar.
SAVE THE PRESET!

You'll still have to add the device to any preset you want it in, but the controller will already be assigned.

Thank you very much!

I'd like to adjust the left pedal for volume control of the Guitar rig presets, and the right pedal for wah.
Could you give me a hint!

1&2) You do not program an amp sim using an editor. You use an editor to program the FCB to control the amp sim. You can use the FCB to control the amp sim in either standalone or VST mode. Assuming that you are using a PC (vs MAC), You can't run the editor and the amp sim at the same time due to conflicts with the MIDI driver.

3) No. You CAN run as many as you want (or as your computer can handle) using VSTs in a DAW or VST Host.

4) Yes, but only needs to be done for first use, then as necessary if you think that it's gotten out of calibration. Use a MIDI Monitor to check this. If the range is other than 0-127, it needs to be calibrated.

5) Yes.

You use the editor to program the FCB according to the requirements of the amp sim and the way you plan to use it, then you close the editor, open the amp sim and assign the various pre-programmed pedals to control the amp sim's functions.

While there are similarities, S-Gear and Guitar Rig have very different ways of doing things. Using the Stock Chip with either will be very limiting.

How to program Guitar Rig 5 with FCB/UnO editor ? #wanted

Rosen Canev
 

Hi dear community!

Recently I bought  FCB/UnO editor for the original FCB1010. I am running  FCB 1010 (v.2.5). I have connected it to my Windows 10 with Roland UM – One Mk II and everything works fine. I am newbie to MIDI so I have a couple of questions:

 

1.    May I program Guitar Rig 5 in standalone mode with FCB/UnO editor? ( Later I will ask for DAW)

2.    May I program S-Gear 2 in standalone mode with FCB/UnO editor?

3.    May I run both applications in standalone mode simultaneously?( For example: to use 2 presets from Guitar Rig then to turn to 2 presets from S-Gear) ( As I know it is possible for DAW- right?)

4.    Before start programming should I calibrate both expression pedals?

5.    During setting up FCB/Uno editor from the menu I chose Midi- In port – UM-ONE and Midi Out port – UM-One. Is it correct?

 

Thank you in advance!

Pedals 6-10 send PC#s 000-004

Bank 01

Pedals 6-10 send PC#s 005-009

All Presets in all Banks
Expression Pedal A = CC#126
Expression Pedal B = CC#127

Although THU numbers it's Presets 1-Infinity (however many are allowed per bank), PC#000 will always load Preset 1. This whole numbering thing is transparent in use, I only mention it since when you load the sysex in your MIDI Editor (loaded properly in the Ed Dixon Editor (in the Files area FCB1010Editor>FCB1010PCEditorInstall.zip). Follow the directions to load the sysex into your FCB.

In THU>MIDI you'll want to set the first two items per the attached screenshot.

You can then decide what you want to control and use LEARN to assign buttons 1-5 (CC#s 111-115).
Tap Tempo is in the last group.(OTHER). I assume that's what you meant by "CLICK", though /Solo I'm not sure? Anyhow, you'll want to click BPM in the second (under the Menu) Bar so that it shows INTERNAL to use Tap Tempo.

Expression Pedals can be assigned to the individual controls on the images by Right Clicking on the control. If you select "Learn MIDI for Current Preset you can reuse the Expression pedals in other presets for other controls. DON'T FORGET to SAVE THE PRESET! whenever you assign MIDI or make any other changes to a preset. Keep in mind that you must press a button, any button 1-10, before the Expression Pedals are active.

The attached sysex allows you access to 10 Presets. If you need more, just set up the pedals in additional banks same as the first two, but with different PC#s.

Questions?

Re: Total newbie Installation

Appreciate the thorough reply. I did give it a few days to go over what I might need. Basically I'll want a setup that will allow this:

Have approx. 9 main guitar sounds. Then a solo/lead click for each of these. And then wah wah and volume on 2 or three of them. I'll mainly want a setup that mirrors how I'd play live with it if I was using regular pedals et al.

So ultimately I'll just need perhaps a Global setup? I don't understand all this yet but trying to start on the right track for my long term needs. I do understand what you mean regarding the banks and the pedal not syncing with TH-U in terms of switching banks.

I won't need to have the ability via the pedal to alter the amount of distortion real time or change the delay real time ot other really intricate midi adjustments. Yet I can see the use and need for the option to add some reverb swell or some special effect as a one off during a solo. Maybe this could be done with one of the expression pedals?
