Re: Total newbie Installation

Been digging in. I'll spend the time doing this myself and hopefully, fingers crossed, I'll spare you the pointless questions!. I calibrated the pedals as they weren't working and that was a success. I have been able to press 10 (which I guess is 0) and then a preset and the preset in TH-U does change. I notice it's one number off. So I press pedal/button one and preset 2 loads in Th-U. And so on. Preset 1 won't load at all pressing any pedal. I'll figure it out. Then I'll see how to use the Uno as right now I'm just riverdancing as they say. I have read the Uno manual. Has my imagination going with what's possible to do with this unit. Progress is happening so I'm stoked.

Start by READING THE MANUAL (DL at the bottom of the above linked page). 

There's even PICTURES!
Hopefully, by the time I get up tomorrow, you'll have READ THE MANUAL, you'll be all set up and have already downloaded the sysex file to your FCB.
You can now SAVE the sysex in ControlCenter format (*.lgp) so that you don't need to IMPORT it again.   

Talk to you tomorrow.....

Awesome help. I bought the proper editor just now. So give this a view when you see it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4cuaj93r5fi6na2/nofcbfound.mp4?dl=0

You're a godsend as I'd have thrown this think out left to my own accord! I know it'll be cool ounce I'm going but damn the basic stuff is cramping me out and you I'll bet!

Here's the link to the right Editor:

"I did successfully get the sysex file into the FCB (Bank file looks the same as your screenshot) and was able to hit Learn in the midi area of TH-U.

I see "how" to do it in TH-U and can go thru the process but doing it just changes to a new the preset matching pedal I'm hitting."

Sounds like you STILL don't have the sysex loaded on the FCB. I'm guessing that you loaded the sysex file into your editor, and that's what you're seeing on the BANKS screen.

With THU CLOSED:
Open your Editor. Select OPTIONS>FCB1010. Make sure your I/O is set to the UM1. See attached screenshot buzzerman123 I-O.
Click OK. Select VIEW>MIDI>Input Messages. See attached screenshot buzzerman123 MIDI Monitor Step 1.
Click EDIT. Step on all the FCB pedals 1-10. The screen should look like screenshot buzzerman123 MIDI Monitor Step 2.
The very last number in the far right column is the VALUE.

If the MIDI Monitor screen does not look like the screenshot, you'll probably be seeing just Program Change Messages.
The sysex was NOT loaded to the FCB.

Open your Editor. Select Options>MIDI Devices. Make sure that the UM is selected for I/O.
Close the dialog. Select MIDI>SEND and do whatever that editor requires to receive the contents of your FCB.
Select VIEW>Banks. It should look like the attached Editor screenshot.

Now it should work as described.

NO? OK, I'm tired of trying to describe how to use a second rate Editor with my incompatible chip.
Soon you'll have the REAL UNO_ControlCenter Editor, and we can get this done with MUCH less aggravation.

I'll be out for the rest of the day. What Time Zone are you in? I'm in the Rocky Mtn Time Zone (Colorado USA).
When you've got ContolCenter loaded up, let me know (tomorrow) and let's get this thing working. I'll be around before 1PM (my time) and after 5PM.

FYI - Once you've paid for the ControlCenter License you'll be sent a Registration Key. It's an automated process, so if you don't have it in 30 minutes, check your Junk Mail folder. Start by READING THE MANUAL (DL at the bottom of the above linked page).

Re: How to lower Exp. pedal's volume of stock FCB1010?

When you get your UNO chip, follow the directions and beware of static!
I'm also going to recommend getting the UNO_ControlCenter Editor. 
It's the best. Worth the $22. You'll thank me later.
Lastly, be aware that the UNO function of sending the Stomp pedals' CC#s on Preset Load doesn't work with GR5.
I'm not SURE why, but I THINK it's because GR5 ignores CC#s sent with PC#s.
Attached is a ControlCenter sysex for GR5.
Have Fun!

Ok, I decided to grab the UNO editor. Yet prior to learning that I did successfully get the sysex file into the FCB (Bank file looks the same as your screenshot) and was able to hit Learn in the midi area of TH-U. Yet when I manually selected bank 1, Preset 1 in Th-U and then pressed 10 on the FCB as you suggested, the program did change. Yet I'm not clear on how to make a pedal (say pedal #2) just turn the delay on or off. I see "how" to do it in TH-U and can go thru the process but doing it just changes to a new the preset matching pedal I'm hitting.

 

Yet I am getting somewhere! :) Lets' move forward talking about the UNO. I attached a screenshot to make sure I do in fact have the right editor! I have all the settings in the UNo for the Um One and it shows as this is all good. Just one question on that:

Input: Channel 1
Controller: Channel 1
Output: Channel 1

That's how I set it.

Thanks bro! You helped me a lot. Respect!

Re: How to lower Exp. pedal's volume of stock FCB1010?

Create a MIDI track with your MIDI interface (the FCB) as INPUT.
Create a SEND in the MIDI track pointed at your GR5 Track.
ARM both tracks.

EJ Sheldon explained it very well for Guitar Rig standalone and I did it, but I'd like to do all MIDI assignments through the DAW ( I am using REAPER) but I have no idea how to do it step by step.

By the way, yesterday I ordered UNO chip, because I am with the stock one.

Re: How to lower Exp. pedal's volume of stock FCB1010?

Are you using Guitar Rig standalone, or as a plugin?  If a plugin, you have to do all MIDI assignment through the DAW, or on the FCB1010 itself.  For Standalone, I can't find any information.  I do Not have GR5 myself, so I can't help much there.

You can do it by reprogramming the FCB1010.  I'm going to assume you know how, but if not, let us know which editor you're using, and someone can step you through it.  Select a preset (footswitch and bank) to use and find the Exp Pedal settings for that preset.  Enter 30 as the lower 'Value' parameter and 100 as the upper. These are usually set to 0 and 127.  If you want to be able to change the expression pedal back to full range, just use a different preset and program the default numbers.

In the controller, right below MENU, there's a two ended slider. Drag the ends Left/Right to create a range. See Attached screenshot.

How to lower Exp. pedal's volume of stock FCB1010?

Rosen Canev
 

Dear community,

I'd like to lower Exp. pedal parameters ( pedal B) of my stock chip FCB1010. From Guitar Rig 5's controller menu I choose PRESET VOLUME but there I can see only 5 options: Volume, Dry Volume, Wet Volume, Mix, Pre Rack Mixing. I know that pedal's range is 0 -127 but when playing a song I'd like to increase volume a little bit, for example from 30 - 100.  Can I do this through Guitar Rig's controller menu, or there is another way?

OK, first, I apologize for steering you to the wrong Editor. The one I asked you to install doesn't run on MAC, and I forgot that you were using a MAC.
Unfortunately, I have the UNO chip in my FCB. The Editor you installed is not compatible with UNO.
So, while the sysex I sent should work with your editor, I can't step by step you through this, but I'll try.
There is an editor that runs on both our machines, but it's not free.
Let's see what we can do before I make you spend the $20 that the hands down best FCB editor would cost.

The following instructions are based on what I can see of your THU MIDI configuration in your video. See attached THU screenshot.

First, open THU. Manually select preset. 1. EDIT: Now press pedal 10. Did the preset change?
IF YES THEN
           Try LEARN on one of the effects in the preset using pedal 1. Did it work?
IF NO THEN
           Close THU.
           Open your Editor. Select Options>MIDI Devices. Make sure that the UM is selected for I/O.
           Close the dialog. Select MIDI>Receive and do whatever that editor requires to receive the contents of your FCB.
           Select VIEW>Banks. It should look like the attached Editor screenshot.
     IF NO THEN
         You did not successfully load the sysex to your FCB.
Are you using two cables?
Is the FCB OUT port connected to the Interface IN port?
AND vice versa for the other cable.
Turn OFF the FCB. Restart while holding the DOWN pedal. When the green led in GLOBAL CONFIGURATION>DIRECT SELECT lights, press the UP pedal twice so that the CONFIG led is lit. Press pedal 7 so that it's led lights. press and hold the DOWN pedal until the display returns to 00.
Open your editor, open the sysex, select MIDI>SEND. The display should turn off, then return to 00.
Select VIEW>MIDI>Input Messages. This is your MIDI Monitor. Test the pedals. Do they send the messages as I described above?

IF NO then get back to me and we'll talk some more.
It may be that in order for us to be on the same page you'll need to get the UNO_ControlCenter Editor that I mentioned.

I provided that info FYI, I should have been clear about that - If you attempt to DL a sysex to the stock chip and it times out, you now know why and what to do.
If you're serious about playing through amp sims you'll probably end up with UNO, and the version info is good to know.
