Re: A Little Inspiration - Neon Vines

That's what I love about the FCB1010 - It's so versatile.  From what I saw her doing, the FCB1010 was at least changing "patches" on the Sampler, maybe the MPC as well.  It's great for that - changing sounds for the next song, or next part of a song in this case.  Not so different from the way it's used for a guitar setup, really.

I use mine pretty simply, starting and stopping background pads, with main Volume on one pedal and the frequency of a low pass filter on the other. (I play keys for a worship group.)  I have used it to tell my DAW to change keys (for pads and/or key-dependent instruments), but that's about as complicated as I've gotten so far.

Do you have a unique or interesting setup with the FCB1010?  Let us hear about it!

Please keep any following posts on-topic, i.e. has direct relevance to FCB1010 ...

The opening video has made me realise, as a guitarist, I have absolutely no idea what her FCB1010 is controlling?!

If you can split off the Helix part with a thread title like "FCB1010 and Helix" that might give someone new a place to start.

Amazing that all my time here we never met! Good to know that Roger has backup!


A Happy New Year

We're still here through the changes! Wow. Seventeen and 3/4 years. Who'd have thought it!

Happy New Year for 2020 from myself and the rest of the mods, active and not so, and may the turning of the year bring everyone all the personal and musical happiness possible. Keep on making great music!

Yes, Eureka  IO mode is great! Total control of buttons, LED's and 7 segment display.  I use it with BomeBox running Bome MIDI Translator project.

AMAZING! That wasn't a thing when I started looking into this. Thanks. Defo just buying that then!

Very cool! We used to have to request that the "hijacker" start a new thread. Is there a way we can do this ourselves, or alert you to do it?


Re: FCB1010_UnO with Helix

Just dropping in to say that I figured out how to split your conversation about Helix, from the "Upgrade Questions" topic, in order to create this new one (something that wasn't possible at Yahoo, I think).

What do you think 😁

If you want to use it as part of a Helix signal chain then 4cm is the way to go. And of course you can control it with MIDI via Command Center.

OP's specific needs were actually well served with the stock chip. Like you, I discarded the stock chip within hours of getting it, but, as I pointed out to OP, the UNO_ControlCenter Editor is really the key to painless use of either chip.

Hey EJ,
Many thanks for your information and detailed reply 😁
Yes I am running the UNO firmware 😁 I could stand the factory shipped version it drove me crazy!!
It lasted for a total of 24hrs before I removed it! It will never be reinstalled! 🤗
I am struggling to see why the member whose thread I hijacked continues to batter away on the Factory version..
He certainly has far more patience n dogged determination than myself!.
I just thought & felt it turned a relatively pain free experience as far as midi is concerned into  drudgery...
Plus I had read about all the cool things UNO firmware users were doing 😁
I did have a Eureka prom for a little while but as stated earlier in the thread it's very specific & Not a patch on the UNO if flexibility is your mantra
Sold the Eureka prom when I sold the Hardware  I got it for.
I run a variety of outbound hardware interconnected with the FCB1010. I use a Yamaha Motif Rack ES & A Roland GR-55  plus DAW sequencing control.
Thanks again for your help
Chris

I have just purchased a Helix. After reading this ongoing article I have become quite excited about using my FCB1010 Uno in conjunction with my Helix Floor. I plan to use the FCB to extend my control. I plan on switching Scenes & Stomps. I am especially interested in using the FCB expression pedals as Expression Pedals 2 & 3.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

On Helix, when you assign a parameter to Exp2/3 you're assigning it to the input from the Exp2/3 jacks. To use the FCB exp pedals, assign the parameter to the MIDI CC assigned to the FCB's expression pedal you want to use.  In the attached screenshot I'm assigning my FCB Expression Pedal A to the DRIVE parameter of the Placater dirty amp. I've Right-clicked on the DRIVE parameter, then MIDI, then I've selected the CC that my FCB Exp A is assigned to. That's it!

NOTE: the downside of doing this is that you can't save the FCB exp pedal position in Helix. This makes seamless changes in level impossible, so you'll have to accommodate with your playing technique.

In the second screenshot I'm assigning an FCB stomp pedal to the bypass function of a block. Right-click the block, then MIDI Bypass, then select the CC assigned to that FCB stomp. If you're using the stock FCB chip you'll be using CNT1 and CNT2 set the same CC# and the values set to 0/127. Don't forget to disable the default PC# assigned to that stomp (unless you have PC RECEIVE set to OFF in Helix GLOBAL SETTINGS/MIDI) or it'll switch Helix presets on you!

When you're done. don't forget to SAVE the Helix preset. I know, sounds like "OF COURSE!", but you'd be surprised how many people forget to do this and wonder where their assignments have gone!

You can assign Snapshots by setting the FCB stomp to CC#69 with a value of 0-7 for Snapshots 1-8.
You can assign the tuner this way also, using CC#68.

Tap tempo is tricky to set up on the stock FCB. See the FCB manual if you want to try that. With the UNO chip it's easy, but you need to be in STOMPBOX MODE. Then you just make a STOMPBOX pedal MOMENTARY with a single click on the FCB_CONTROLCENTER interface and assign it to CC#64.

One of the most useful applications of the FCB with Helix is assigning the LOOPER functions to the FCB. Gives you constant access to the LOOPER without having to switch modes on the Helix. VERY useful!

Hope this helps!

Upgrade Questions

David Grosz
 

I have included a pdf showing switches programmed as described by EJ's post.  You are over thinking this whole thing and do not
think of it as a tow of this or a row of that but rather think about it this way, the FCB1010 has 10 Banks of 10 switches or 100 locations
so that means each switch YOU program to do whatever you want and if you want a row to be all PC or Stomp mode or both you simply
program each switch to whatever you want and it really is this easy.  The UNO chip allows you to use an alternate CC value which stomp on would use 127 and 0 for the second.

Check out the pdf which is made from Uno Editor showing SW1 all PC set to something along with the CC both normal  SW2 all PC set to something different and CC set for Stomp mode, SW3 all PC set to something, and CC1 set to stomp and CC2 sending a normal non stomp.

I hope this makes sense and again this works the same with stock chip except stock chip does not give you the alternate CC value or to use 127, 0.  If you need stomp mode you need UNO but some devices will take the stock chip CC value as on/off each time you push it. 

If you still are unsure write up what you want Bank 01 and 02 to do all 10 switches and I will make a program and post the pdf copy.  You need the editor to make it simple because the editor allows you to see all the settings for a given switch and easy to know if you something got missed programming.

Yes you can have any switch do anything, I will try and set up a program laid out as your asking about
but Uno chip is the only one that does that does I do not think Eureka prom will do that.  Enclosed is a pdf
of my template for my Axe-Fx and you will see stomp mode used at the bottom I believe Bank 09 but you
can program 5 PC# , 2 CC# with 1 value and or an alternate which is stomp mode, both expression pedals
and a note value for each button.  One button push can send 5 PC changes to 5 different midi devices but you
really need the editor to do it because trying to do it manually would be a nightmare

David, that sounds great, but kind of contrary to what I've read everywhere else and what it seems EJ is saying.

So you're saying there will be 10 Banks ot 10 switches, and in each of those 10 banks any switch can be assigned to send CC, PC, or operate in stombox mode, with each bank being a DIFFERENT layout?

IOW, can I make Bank 1 be all PC to select patches, and then Bank 2 ALL Stombox to turn FX on and off once I'm in a patch, and Bank 3 be lower row presets, upper row stomps, and Bank 4 be 9 Presets with 1 Stomp, and Bank 5 be 2 Presets with 8 stomps, and so on?

If so, this would be amazing.
