Re: Updated: FCB1010 Groups Running Costs 2021-2022 #donation-request

I chipped in a small amount, enough to bring the total to 110.10  , just for fun.
I have no idea what is needed. I will tell you that I have been able to make use of my FCB1010 as a controller for SuperLooper in Ubuntu Studio, but without this group I would have given up.

Is there a $$  goal, will we be repeating this annually?

Cheers!

Huge thanks to Roger for keeping us going: I really appreciate the effort, and an equally large thank you to those who have donated. 

I'm still stunned that this list continues to grow and support the user community. Given I admin several Discord servers, I do understand the liking folks have for Discord, however, I think the way this list has worked for the past two decades (OK, OK, less about 6 months!) demonstrates that it's a sustainable model for community support, and I'd be loath to change it.

Yours,

Mike

It is absolutely not an equivalent platform and certainly not free if you wish to upload anything filewise! Operationally, there's no comparison, there's no email facilities, just PMs/DMs, it's lesser in most respects so what's the point in even thinking about starting up there? And note, I say starting up because there's no possibility of migrating this repository ...

You might like to start such a group yourself and see how it fares?

I presume you didn't visit the GiO Premium Yearly Plan page on pricing, or perhaps you did? You would have found that Premium plans start at $20/month, for groups with no more than 500 members, with additional members $0.04/month or $0.44/year. This group has 12000 members! Suffice to say that because I migrated our groups to GiO long before the latest plans were introduced, our costs are significantly lower than they would be now if we were starting afresh!

Since October 2019, with the splendid support that has been shown by a very small percentage of the membership who have donated, these groups are not in danger of having to downgrade to a lesser service, and I am most grateful to them!

I'll leave it at that ...

You can upload files to the channels in discord, or we could upload them elsewhere, say Google drive or one drive, and post a link to the file.

Re: Toggle Arm button On and Off in Ableton

4texsound@...
 

Thanks!

Instead of using CC I used the Note_Onn/Off option from the script (The TinyBox script editor gives suggestions as to which method to use and is really helpfull in programming the TinyBox) and it works fine. Just like using an 'ordinairy' key from a midi keyboard to switch things on and off in Ableton.

I will try EJ SHeldons method, just to try if it will work too!


Re: Toggle Arm button On and Off in Ableton

chrisw_63
 

I've used MIDI to control the ARM buttons for a long time on my UnO 1 FCB, and it works fine.  If you're using a Note message, Ableton will ignore the Note Off (Velocity zero), because if it didn't, using a keyboard key to control it would be impossible - it would just toggle off when you press the note, and back on again when you release it (or vice-versa).  However, it won't toggle by itself when you send two identical CC messages.  You have to do as EJ Sheldon describes and send a 127 to turn on, and a 0 to turn off.


Re: Toggle Arm button On and Off in Ableton

EJ SHELDON
 

IDK how the Tinybox code looks, but for UNO2 this works:

EFFECT_ON Stomp5 = SendMidi DEVICE CtrlChange 115 127
EFFECT_OFF Stomp5 = SendMidi DEVICE CtrlChange 115 0

Of course, you can use any CC# you like. This is just how my FCB happens to be set up currently.


Toggle Arm button On and Off in Ableton

4texsound@...
 

Hi,

This is my first question, so I am completely new to programming the Tiny Box.


I thought I'd make an easy start by trying to make the simpelst script for Ableton. Just 8 some (4) switches to toggle the Arm button on and off in Ableton.

To make it do one thing works fine with the TRIGGER or the EFFECTS and using a ControlChange but to switch the Arm button on (or off) again does not work.

Anybody familiar with this?

 

Thank you so much!

 


Re: bin file for uno?

I don't believe you can.  Selling the BIN file would lead to pirating for sure.  You can buy the pre-programmed EPROM from Ossandust at https://www.fcb1010.eu/.


Re: bin file for uno?

This is really my point

I don't want to pay pirates
Who is the copyright holder ?
If i must purchase it then knowing that the reward goes to the hard work is fine by me .
I have all the smarts so my question is still . Where can i get/buy  the BIN file ?

One might consider avoiding purchasing to be financial gain?
