Attached are screenshots of how to configure a Preset and a Toggling CC (Stomp).
In Amplitube you need to place your presets in the Preset Screen (SS attached).
In AT5, you need to set the FX Bypass per preset, globals are gone (SS attached).

In order to configure the stock FCB to control AT5 using the Ed Dixon Editor (or manually), you'll need to configure every pedal in every bank.
That's 100 actions. This is why most users opt for the UNO chip and ControlCenter Editor.

What do you mean?  The upgrade doesn't affect your computer's MIDI drivers or connections.  Your old settings probably won't work with Amplitube 5, but the FCB1010 should still be able to control it.  If the new version doesn't receive MIDI at all, it almost has to be a setting in Amplitube. Or a very odd coincidence that has nothing to do with the upgrade.

Hi guys I recently move to Amplitube 5 from 4 but no joy on make FCB1010 work with it, is anyone have a better luck?
Does any sysex file exist to upload FCB. I have on-board chip not Uno or sort :(
Cheers Cem

I can confirm that there must have been a temporary server connection issue about 8 to 9 hours ago, causing the license database to be inaccessible. Things are working correctly again, new code has been emailed. Sorry for the inconvenience...

There seems to have been a server connection issue - will need to look into it after working hours. 
In the mean time I have blocked your license code for obvious reasons - I will send you a new code tonight. 
It is not a good idea to publish your license data on the internet, better send me an email when such an issue occurs.

Re: yamaha Tyros 5 with FCB1010

Hi again

Since William awaked my curiosity, I just setup the 10 switches of my FCB1010 to match a Tyros function. So, here is how it is done.

First set the FCB1010 MIDI channel to whatever you want:
  1. If the FCB1010 is turned on, then turn it off
  2. Keep the "DOWN" switch pressed, then turn it on
  3. Do not release the switch until the "DIREC SELECT" LED turns green
  4. Press the "UP" switch once
  5. The led: "MIDI FUNCION" blinks
  6. Press the switch 10 (NOTE) once, then it will start blinking. On the display, you will see the MIDI channel used for sending notes
  7. To change it, press the "UP/ENTER" switch, the display starts blinking
  8. You can then input the channel you want by pushing the respective pedal numbers
  9. Then press the "UP/ENTER" switch
  10. Exit from the global settings by pressing the "DOWN/ESCAPE" switch by few secons

After this, go to your Tyros and do the following:

  1. Choose a Midi Configuration:
    • Press the button: "Function"
    • Then click "MIDI"
    • Chooose the MIDI preset you want to modify
    • Press: "Edit"
  2. Go to the tab: "MFC10"
  3. Once there, you should see the settings for the MIDI port: either: "MIDI A" or "MIDI B". Choose the port where you want to connect the FCB1010 (It should be connected to one input port)
  4. Setup also the MIDI channel the same as the one on your FCB1010
  5. You will see there the notes that you have to send from the FCB1010 and what they will do
    On the second column you see the note you have to send from the FCB1010 to activate that function and on the third column you will see the function that you want the Tyros excecutes, for example: "Rythm Start/Stop". You can modify those functions by pressing the display buttons.
  6. Once you have changed the template, save the changes

Finally, setup the FCB1010 to send the notes as required:

 

  1. Turn on the FCB1010
  2. Choose the Bank you want to use with the "UP" and "Down" switches
  3. Activate the switch you want to setup, ie: push the switch 1. It doesn't have to have the same order as in the table from the Tyros. At the end what matters is the note you send
  4. Press the "Down" switch for a few seconds until the display doesn't show anything
  5. Press once the "Up" switch
  6. Turn off all switches that are on, by pushing them few seconds
  7. Once all are off, press the switch 10 (NOTE) once, then a second time and leave it pressed until it turns on. Finaly press it again and then the LED will blink
  8. Press the switch UP/ENTER. You will see that the display blinks and you will see "00"
  9. Now you can enter the note number that you setup on the Tyros. Here a table with the equivalent note numbers:
    https://djip.co/wp-content/uploads/drupal/blog/logic-midi-note-numbers.png
  10. You have two ways of setting the note number:
    • With the left foot pedal
    • Or you can press the note number by using the switches, which are numbered from 1 till 10 (or zero)
  11. Once you see the note you want, then press the switch: "UP/ENTER"
  12. Exit from the programming mode by pressing the "DOWN/ESCAPE" switch for a few seconds until the display changes
  13. Repeat steps 3 until 12 to programm the other notes you want
  14. If you haven't done it yet, then connect the FCB1010 to the MIDI A or MIDI B input port, according to the one you setup on the Tyros

Please note that you can set upto 29 notes: from C#-1 (Note 0) until
F#1 (Note42). So, you may use upto three banks on your FCB1010 to acomplish this. However, I doubt you need that much.

Best regards
Josef

Hi again

Here I want to share some things that I forwarded to William. In case that somebody else has a Tyros and wants to try it.

On the YouTube video, not all note numbers will be shown. This means that you have to count theme by yourself. After E-1, the next note would be F-1. Since E-1 is 16, then F-1 must be 17. Anyway, I guess the table of the FCB1010 manual will help you more with that counting (page 10)

So, for knowing the value of, let's say G0, locate C0 on that table, which has the note number: 24. Now count notes until G0: C0 = 24, C#0 (or Db0) = 25, D0 = 26, D#0 (or Eb0) = 27, E0 = 28, F0 = 29, F#0 (or Gb0) = 30, and G0 = 31. So, there you go, you have that G0 = 31.

Anyway, you can also get this table where everything is already simplified:
https://djip.co/wp-content/uploads/drupal/blog/logic-midi-note-numbers.png

Best regards
Josef


Re: yamaha Tyros 5 with FCB1010

By the way, the YouTuber also mentioned that the table can be found on page 10 of the FCB1010 manual. You can get a copy from here:

Re: yamaha Tyros 5 with FCB1010

JM
 

Dear William

On my previous post, you will find a link to this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqt-fk5ZyWk

I also put the time marks were you will find all the information. You are looking for step 9 of the FCB1010 setup:

  • Now you can enter the note number that you setup on the Tyros. It will display a table with the equivalences of the note numbers and the musical notes on minute: 7:05

So, in the time mark 7:05, you will see that the person of the video put a table, see:
https://youtu.be/hqt-fk5ZyWk?t=425

He says this:

C#-1 = 13
D-1 = 14
Eb-1 = 15
E-1 = 16
...
F#1 = 42

Best regards
Josef

Hi Josef
Now home and red throgh your message angain carefully.

Few questions thoug.
- In Tyron mfc10 template you can
.... send the seleced functions of all 10 buttons via midi a or b and channal via midi out port with just one send command to
... fcb1010 midi in port when it it is at the same cannel

If fcb does not work the same way like mfc10 ( Should work because it sends only midi note values) then i sould program each note value for each celected function to each bank , but from where i can find the note values to manually put in fcb. The mcf10 template does not show midi value just note name C# ... and function.

Im a bit uncertain. What Im missing ?

Re: yamaha Tyros 5 with FCB1010

Hi William

I'm also looking fordward for doing the same, but I haven't had the time yet. Anyway, I found this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqt-fk5ZyWk

It is unfortunatelly in german, but I think you may understand what he is doing. Anyway, I saw it and basically you do it the same way as with the Yamaha MFC 10:

  1. Choose a Midi Configuration on your Tyros:
    • Press the button: "Function"
    • Then click "MIDI"
    • Chooose the MIDI preset you want to modify
    • Press: "Edit"
  2. Go to the tab: "MFC10"
  3. Once there, you should see some where the settings for the MIDI port: either: "MIDI A" or "MIDI B". Choose the port where you connected the FCB1010 (It should be connected to one input port) -> Minute 1:54
  4. Setup also the MIDI channel the same as the one on your FCB1010 -> Minute 2:29
  5. You will see there the notes that you have to send from the FCB1010 and what they will do -> Minute 2:40
    You will see on the second column the note you have to send and on the third column you will see the function. You can modify those functions by pressing the display buttons.
After you have done that, then you need to setup the FCB1010:
  1. Turn on the FCB1010
  2. Choose the Bank you want to use with the "UP" and "Down" switches -> Minute 5:00
  3. Activate the switch you want to setup, ie: push the switch 1. It doesn't have to have the same order as in the table from the Tyros. At the end what matters is the note you send
  4. Press the "Down" switch for a few seconds until the display doesn't show anything -> Minute: 5:20
  5. Press once the "Up" switch
  6. Turn off all switches that are on, by pushing them few seconds -> Minute 5:58
  7. Once all are off, press the switch 10 (NOTE) once, then a second time and leave it pressed until it turns on. Finaly press it again and then the LED will blink -> Minute 6:23
  8. Press the switch UP/ENTER. You will see that the display blinks and you will see "00" -> Minute 6:46
  9. Now you can enter the note number that you setup on the Tyros. It will display a table with the equivalences of the note numbers and the musical notes on minute: 7:05
  10. You have two ways of setting the note number:
    • With the left foot pedal -> Minute 7:24
    • Or you can press the note number by using the switchs, which are numbered from 1 till 10 (or zero)
  11. Once you see the note you want, then press the switch: "UP/ENTER"
  12. Repeat steps 3 until 11 to programm the other notes you want
  13. Exit the programm mode by pressing the "DOWN/ESCAPE" until the display changes -> Minute 7:52
  14. If you haven't done it yet, then connect the FCB1010 to the MIDI A or MIDI B input port, according to the one you setup on the Tyros
  15. If you want to setup more functions on the Tyros, then on the keyboard display, choose the other setting you want and adjust it as required -> Minute 8:43
  16. You can setup the first 10 notes on a FCB1010 bank -> Minute 9:44
  17. From the 11th note, you can setup them on another FCB1010 bank -> Minute 9:47
  18. You can setup upto 29 notes, this is 3 banks on the FCB1010
In theory you should be able to use the functions now. If not, then check the MIDI Channel for NOTE messages on the FCB1010 (From minute 10:35)
  1. Turn off the FCB1010
  2. Keep the "DOWN" switch pressed, then turn it on -> Minute 11:03
  3. Do not release the switch until the "DIREC SELECT" LED turns green -> Minute 11:11
  4. Press the "UP" switch once -> Minute 11:20
  5. The led: "MIDI FUNCION" blinks -> Minute 11:22
  6. Press the switch 10 (NOTE) once, then it will start blinking. On the display, you will see the MIDI channel used for sending notes -> Minute 11:31
  7. To change it, press the "UP/ENTER" switch, the display starts blinking -> Minute 11:47
  8. You can then input the channel you want by pushing the respective pedal numbers -> Minute 11:57
  9. Then press the "UP/ENTER" switch -> Minute 12:07
  10. Exit from the global settings by pressing the "DOWN/ESCAPE" switch by few secons -> Minute 12:13
I haven't tried this, but I will. It seems that it is working also for the Tyros.

Best regards
Josef

Re: Cracking/Popping

chrisw_63
 

Never used Guitar Rig outside of my DAW (and don't use it much, really), so I didn't know about NI's ASIO driver.  Thanks EJ.


Re: Cracking/Popping

EJ SHELDON
 

I've been using my FCB with Guitar Rig since GR2, so I do know of what I speak. I have NOT upgraded to GR6 from GR5, but they didn't change anything significant, just added a couple of new amps shot with newer modeling methods.
The problem chrisw_63 referred to only occurs when using an underpowered, un-optimized computer with too low a sample rate.
What are the specs on your computer?
It does NOT sound like the problem you are describing, but without a sound sample it's impossible to be sure.
I strongly advise against using ASIO4ALL, the stock ASIO driver provided by NI works fine.  
Record a sample of the noise and attach it, along with a description of the effects in use in the preset. I'll try to duplicate it and look for the problem.


Re: Prgrm pedal to act as pedalboard w/TH-U

EJ SHELDON
 

You want the UNO Chip. Whether you want the Original UNO or UNO2 depends on your needs and your programming skills.

With the stock chip you can program the switches to Toggle, but the LEDs WILL NOT reflect that, and you can't set up FAUX TWO-WAY COMMUNICATION as you can with UNO.(SEE BELOW). You can program all 10 switches to toggle, meaning that you can control 10 categories of effects in THU (unless you're planning on setting all FX bypass functions per preset). You said you don't need the BANKS function, so I assume that you realize you won't be using the FCB to change PRESETS in THU.

With either chip. the BANK switches ONLY do BANKS. They change the BANK in the FCB, NOT in THU. You could have different BANKs sending different combinations of different CC and PC messages, allowing you to change PRESETS in THU..

With original UNO You can have top or bottom row set to Toggle, but you'll have the same 5 messages sent in every Bank, which means you'll only be able to control 5 categories of effects in THU (again, unless you're planning on setting all FX bypass functions per preset). You can also program it so that the LEDs reflect the actual status of the THU effects (FAUX TWO-WAY COMMUNICATION), even though the communication is one-way only. You WILL be able to change Presets in THU, as the other 5 switches in each FCB BANK can send PC numbers. Those switches can also send TOGGLING CCs, which could allow you a "Wild Card" Effects control in each Preset.

OR - you could get the UNO2 chip and program every button (except BANKS) to do whatever you want it to, but that requires actual programming with code, not a fully GUI editor like MTN or UNO_ControlCenter.

It sounds to me like you need to learn a bit more about how THU works, and give some more thought to how you'll be using THU ITRW.
 


Re: Cracking/Popping

Hi Geoff,

Following the messages here for quite a while, never heard anyone combining Guitar Rig 6 and FCB 1010. I have no answer to your problem but if I may, can I ask you this:
Were you used to the FCB with earlier Guitar Rig versions? Do you have the UNO firmware installed? Did you start programming the FCB from scratch, or is there a dump to the FCB possible, to get most functions responding and do some further tweaking?
I have the FCB1010 with firmware 25, and Guitar Rig 6. Just missing some simpel functions on a pedal.

Thanks for your time!
Goodluck with the cracking.
Regards,
Jeroen


Re: Cracking/Popping

chrisw_63
 

This is most likely a problem with too much running on the computer/ipad.  If you have a lot of effects running at the same time, or too many background processes, the audio system can bog down and 'skip'.  If you have a slower computer, and can't find anything taking up a lot of time, you may want to consider upgrading.

If you're running on Windows and don't have an ASIO driver, that is most likely the issue.  Download ASIO4ALL and set it as the sound driver for your DAW, or whatever you're using.

Hi all,

I’m getting a cracking/popping noise when I turn an effect on/off in Guitar Rig 6 while using the FCB1010 midi controller. Any ideas what could be causing this & how to to possibly fix it?

TIA
