I posted the video because I know nothing about pedals and music production.
I know the pedal in the video is a Boss ### beyond that I just don't know.
 I am just trying to give the new lead guitar player a hand up so he is able to duplicate what the old lead was doing.
I Love Music, My last name is Kramer, I remember as a Kid walking past the music store and the sign would read "The New Kramer's Are In". But my dad, who played Guitar would never spring for lessons. So I live vicariously through my son, The Bass Player.
 If I just hand the 1010 to the new Guitar player I don't know that he'll put in the work to make this work.
 Man, Its like sitting in the stands at a Vikings Game and they don't hear you calling the plays! lol....

The FCB1010 is a midi remote controller. It tells another device to do something. Very much like a tv remote tells a tv to change channels or adjust volume. The remote does not create the video or the sound, just tells the tv to make a change. The FCB1010 must be connected to another device that actually does something.

In the video looks like he is just turning on/off a distortion effect, which is likely built into that pedal. If the FCB1010 is connected to an midi amp, amp simulator, or effects simulator the FCB1010 could trigger a similar effect. But understand the FCB1010 is just telling the other device to make a change.

If all you have is the FCB1010 then it will not do anything, just like a remote without a tv won't do anything.

Do you have other equipment that would connect to the FCB1010? If so we may be able to help you get it to do what you.want.

Greetings,
 Forgive me if I'm posting in an improper way. I just have a general
question and musical example.
I purchased an FCB1010 Controller several years ago for my son, put in
an UNO chip and it went back in the box.
My question is (If the video comes through) can the FCB 1010 do what the
lead guitar player in the video is doing with his pedal?
 Hope the video comes through.

Yep.. MIDI is just the conductor or 'remote control'.  You need something else to make or alter the sound.  And by the time you buy that, you may as well buy a decent distortion pedal.

Re: Need Help FCB1010 + AT4 on Logic Pro X

That wasn't my only suggestion. That just prevents the MIDI from the FCB from interfering with the built-in LOGIC functions.
Set up a MIDI track to bring in MIDI from the INTERFACE that the FCB is connected to, then send the OUTPUT of that track to the AUDIO track that AT4 is inserted on.
Attached is a screenshot of what it looks like in Ableton LIVE.


Re: General Question

I apologise for jumping to such a conclusion but in fairness you might have explained the whole situation in the first place!

To answer your original question, on its own the FCB1010 is only a MIDI controller and would require being interfaced with an amplifier (or similar sound generator) to switch between different sounds.

The Band no longer exists. The singer and lead guitar player have left the band and I, as a non musician am trying to help the new lead guitar player accomplish the same sound.
 You are the shameless unknowing one. I'm not the Bassist, I'm his DAD....

Hi Ej 

I did that, I've changed my FCB1010's midi channel as "2" by using on-board controllers (footswitches, no editor used) still, no joy :( any other suggestions?

Cheers
Cem

Logic will never see the FCB1010. It WILL see the MIDI interface that it's connected to. I'm not sure how Logic works, but most DAWs require you to bring in the MIDI signals on a MIDI track, then point the Output of that track at the track where AT4 is loaded.
You only have to worry the MIDI Channel if something you're sending from the FCB is also assigned to the Logic UI. If Logic does strange things when you operate the FCB, go into the FCB Global settings and change the global MIDI channel to something other than Channel 1.


FCB/Uno Control Centre not connecting to FCB1010

Geoff Packman
 

Hi

 

I bought the FCB/Uno Control Centre software a couple of weeks ago licence number [REDACTED BY ADMIN]

I am running Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7 on a Mac Pro Desktop with 128mb Ram and I have the FCB1010 connected via midi to USB hub via a Mio2 midi interface. Using it to control Amplitube 4 Max

I chose the correct Midi in and out channels and pressed the black midi connecter icon and it says it it is Connecting… with the blue progress bar cycling blue tints as it should.

The problem is it has been trying to connect now for 2 hours with no results, it just stays the same?

Can Anyone offer any help?

Kind regards

Geoff Packman

but this audio transpose only works after you have recorded it not whilst playing/recording.


Re: Sysex for all 12 scales

If it is audio data, sorry there is no dynamic option builtin in Ableton
Kinda.  You can use the Detune and/or Transpose controls in the Clip to change the 'key'.  Not sure how well it'd work with a MIDI control assigned to it.  Well..  Detune can't be assigned, but Transpose can.

Brill, thanks ESS, I will check out both.

Much appreciated :-)

Oh gosh yes, sorry I should have checked there. I didn't realise it would be so easy :-)

Thanks ChrisW


Re: Sysex for all 12 scales

Chris,
you beat me to it.



but this assumes you are using a midi instrument.

If it is audio data, sorry there is no dynamic option builtin in Ableton (that I know of, I have Standard edition), but instead you would resort to a third party octaver like from MeldaProduction's, MHarmonizer:



the above example gives you a power chord, however the notes in green can come from a midi source as well, like what you can generate from the FCB1010 foot controller. The Mharmonizer is not that expensive either and I found it to be one of the best. I use it for my electric violin.

Have fun.


Re: Sysex for all 12 scales

..when u mention a midi pitch shift controller, is this inbuilt in Ableton?
Yep.. under MIDI Effects.  It's just named Pitch.


Re: Sysex for all 12 scales

Steve Pettinger
 

Wow, thanks Earth SS....I am fairly new to the Ableton side of things as well but I am going to print off your suggestion and try and work through it over the coming weeks.

Can I check one thing quickly....when u mention a midi pitch shift controller, is this inbuilt in Ableton?

Thanks again :-)


Re: Sysex for all 12 scales

Steve Pettinger
 

Ah yes, thank you Violet Q ...I hadn't thought of linking it to circle of fifths. I will try this out. Thanks again 😁


Re: Sysex for all 12 scales

Earth.Sky.Surf5@...
 

I have used the stock standard FCB1010 to pitch shift select with Ableton Live. I created a backing clip or riff in midi, then put a midi pitch shift controller in front of the effect chain. The pitch selection stock standard can be absolute, like I, II, IV, VI for a common chord choice, but if you want a bit more spice and use chromatic shifts, I use a relative pitch shift via the ClyphXPro add-on (one button for up one semitone, another button for down a semitone). It’s like playing the chord buttons of a piano accordion but with your feet. Depends what you are used to, I play the piano accordion so am used to the perfect fifths intervals of the chord buttons and would set up the FCB1010 that way. But hey configure however you like. If your backing track is audio, then an octaver from Melda Productions can be used, it has the option to select the interval via midi notes, which could be set with the FCB1010. 


Re: Sysex for all 12 scales

A simple idea for a simple pop song in C major could be to arrange the bass
notes analogously to the circle of fifths:

Pedal 1: ?
Pedal 2: D (Min)
Pedal 3: A (Min)
Pedal 4: E (Min)
Pedal 5: ? (B Min)

Pedal 6: ?
Pedal 7: F (Maj)
Pedal 8: C (Maj)
Pedal 9: G (Maj)
Pedal 0: ? (D Maj)

Some buttons are still unused ...
