Hi Greg,
somedasys ago I had the same question, but its easy:

The "controllers" are 2 values that you can send additional to
the "programm change" commands while changing your preset (pressing a
number). Used to set a controller (i.e. Volume or Reverbtime to a
specific value)
The "pedals" are what you're expecting, where you can send continous
de- or increasing values for 1 controller (i.e. Volume or Wah)
Hope it helps.

roland jv-1010 & gi-10 + behringer v-amp & fcb-1010

sid_6581 <sledgemoor@...>
 

hi all!

does anyone here have experience with changing performances (&
part/midi channel) on a roland jv-1010 via the fcb-1010? or any idea
how i could solve this midi puzzle?

my setup:

i control the gi-10 (midi to guitar interface) via a gk-2a pickup on
my guitar, the midi signal from the gi is routed thru the fcb, then
into the jv-1010 (64-voice synth) and then for effect patch changing
into the v-amp (only the guitar audio goes thru the v-amp).

what i basically want to do:

the jv-1010 provides user performances (where you can assemble 16
sounds to a performance, as far as i understand every of the 16
sounds is assigned to a different midi channel) - you can also set
the volume for each of the 16 sounds - there are 32 user performances
available. (there is also a patch mode, but you cannot change the
patch volume)

so if i want to play guitar only, the fcb should swith the jv-1010 to
a "silent" performance and switch the v-amp to a guitar sound. when i
want to play synth only the fcb should switch to a synth sound stored
in a performance and should switch the v-amp silent.

-

controlling the v-amp (& switching it silent) is not really a big
problem, but how to control the jv-1010? or maybe it is possible to
control the midi send channel of the gi-10 so i can select the
patches of a performance from there?


any help is appreciated, i'm in midi hell ;-)


- sorry if this goes off topic, but i'm sure there is no separate
mailing list with people that run a setup like i do.


peace,

sid

FCB1010 with Fender Cyber Deluxe

jeffwoertz <jwoertz@...>
 

Hi Guys-
Just a quick note to let everyone know the FCB1010 workes perfectly
with the Fender Cyber Deluxe combo amp. For over a hundred dollars
less than Fender's foot controller, the much more capable FCB1010 is
the easy choice. I was able to access all of the amp's features
including the tuner function wih very little effort. I can assign any
two functions to the expression pedals, assign a certain patch number
(I used 99) for the tuner, and I can just "type" in the patch numbers
directly.

going to buy a FCB1010

truenobzr <truenobzr@...>
 

Does it has a voltage selector for 110V or 220V?? Does the package
comes with any cables?? I will hook it up with MIDI and expression
pedal of my Boss GX-700. Is there any difference between mono and
stereo jack for expression pedal??

I am going to order one online, I cannot see one here (Hong Kong).

Re: going to buy a FCB1010

jeffwoertz <jwoertz@...>
 

Mine only came with a power cable. No MIDI cable was included. I
don't see any voltage switch on the version I have. You'll already
have two expression pedals if you use the FCB1010. Why would you want
another one?

Hello all....Well I'm new to this group...and Midi...(very
newbie)...at any rate my goal in life is to get my TC Electronics G-
Major and the FCB1010 to live happily ever after...problem is I have
never messed with MIDI at all..just read a few articles on the web
and the so called users manuals..but none of them really cleared it
all up for me....most of the stuff I found was on keyboard related
gear...not guitar effects processors...at any rate could someone
steer me to some pertinent sites or advice to get me
started?...thanks in advance..

Fender Gig Bag for FCB1010

broadsidetom
 

Hi all,

Not only that, but the gig bag that Fender sells for their foot
controller (part number 0991553000) fits the FCB1010 pretty well -
maybe a little on the loose side, but I figure that just means more
space to stuff in cables and whatnot. (The FCB1010 is a hair smaller
than the Fender foot controller, a fraction of an inch in each
dimension. I reckon the bag would be a little loose on the Fender
too... maybe they got a generic bag and put their logo on it.)

I got one of these bags for my FCB1010 and it's fairly nice. Padded
on all sides, plastic feet on the bottom to reduce scuffing, handles
that velcro together, and a (slightly cheesy) detachable shoulder
strap. The handles and strap attachments are riveted to the bag, and
the lower corners are reinforced. Nice heavy backpack-style nylon
exterior. It opens up flat, though I wouldn't really want to perform
with the FCB1010 in the bag. Three outside pockets.

So, if you want to protect your FCB1010 and don't want to spring for
a road case, you could do much worse. It's the best thing I've found
so far.

regards,
Tom

Gig Bag for FCB 1010

Lumpy <lumpy@...>
 

For those looking, may I suggest -

http://www.coloradocase.com/

Barbara @ Colorado Case will make
a padded, insulated soft case to fit
virtually anything. I have seen several
of her cases for guitars, mandolins and
other instruments. They are top notch.

You have all kinds of choices in colors,
accessory pockets, handles, shoulder straps
etc. Very nice stuff.

Sysex Editor? - and keyboard programming help offer

jazzyfunky64 <stefhahn@yahoo.com>
 

Hi There,

I just receivedmy FCB-1010 today... I did check through this and the
V-AMP groups but wasn't able to find any clue whether there is a
sysex-editor around -- meaning dumping the sysex to a computer and
edit it for reload.

Background:
I want to use the FCB-1010 to control my keyboard setup. First tests
work out great, better than expected!
But the programming misses some features like "copy and paste".... ;o)

Any hints are appreciated!

And if anybody needs helping programming weird keyboard stuff, all
the left open misteries that I did verify (did download the manual
three weeks ago....) did work out so far -- so I was able control a
piano module, a synth workstation and an effect module with the FCB,
easy and straight forward!

ciao,
Stefan

control problem

truenobzr <truenobzr@...>
 

I am using FCB1010 with Boss GX-700. I have a problem is that when I
press switch 1, the preset in GX700 change to 2, if I press switch
2, GX700 change to 3. How to fix it??

Cyber Twin and Tap

Steve Cavanaugh <steve@...>
 

Well I picked up my Cyber Twin today and when I connected my FCB1010 to
it I realized why they designed the PC's to be +1 - you need it that way
if you're connected to an amp that has a patch 00 if you want your pedal
numbers to be the same as the patch numbers.

But I'll tell you the one thing I cannot figure out is how to get the
tap to work on the FCB1010. The manual says that you must have tap
enabled, but fails to say how to do this. Anyone?

Steve

Re: Cyber Twin and Tap

Dave Marshall <dam718@...>
 

The Tap Tempo feature is enabled on the CT by setting a footswitch on the FCB1010 to send Continuous Controller #119 at any value. Be sure to also assign your expression pedal assignments to that patch on the FCB1010 or they won't work anymore once you start the Tap tempo.
 
Hope this helps...

Yes, I know about Controller #119.  I can't get the FCB to send it.  I fooled with it for a while last night and I'm stumped.  I can get the FCB to do everything else, but not this.

Re: Cyber Twin and Tap

Dave Marshall <dam718@...>
 

What value are you sending out for the controller? I use a value of 0 and it seems to work fine. Do you have a midi cable for your computer? If so you can get a MIDI monitor program to monitor the output of the FCB1010 like SendSX or MIDI OX. This will at least let you know that your FCB1010 is sending out the controller command.

anybody controlling software with midi?

astroblue <astro@...>
 

Anybody have any experience using the FCB1010 to control software on their computer?
 
I would like to start/stop recording of sessions from the foot controller. I have CoolEdit 2000 and Sonar. It doesn't look like CoolEdit supports this kind of automation, but perhaps Sonar does, I'm still trying to figure that out.
 
Any info about this subject would be appreciated.
 
thanks,
 
Bob
 

Controlling SONAR with MIDI

broadsidetom
 

Hi there,

I have not actually tried this, but it should be possible. You can
set the FCB1010 to send MIDI note numbers, and then you can set a Key
Binding in SONAR to launch a command when you send a specific note
number. See Options - Key Bindings in Sonar or look up "Key
Bindings" in the online help. Conveniently, you can use the lowest
few note numbers for this, that you'd be unlikely to send from a
keyboard. To control record/play/start/stop stuff you'd bind to
commands from the Transport menu.


Hope that helps,
Tom Rhoads

Re: Controlling SONAR with MIDI

astroblue <astro@...>
 

Tom suggested:
set a Key Binding in SONAR to launch a command when you send a specific
note number.

Thanks for this tip!

That seems to be generally what I need. But in trying this, I'm having
trouble telling SONAR to respond to a particular single MIDI note on message
as a command, since it has this idea of a 'MIDI shift key' which I can't
seem to turn off. So right now I need to send two note on messages, the
'shift' message and the 'bound' note message. Can't do that with a single
FCB1010 pedal action, so I'm hoping to figure out how to turn off the
'shift' key setting in SONAR.

thanks for the lead, I'm getting closer!

Bob

Weird behavior

Steve Cavanaugh <steve@...>
 

Anyone see this: I've selected a patch and the Cyber Twin responds.
I'm sitting there playing for a few minutes when suddenly I see midi
traffic on the CT's indicator, and the volume goes up. I've seen this a
few times, and I'm not sure yet if it's the FCB1010 sending or the CT
acting weird. Anyone else see phantom changes happening from the FCB?
