Ok, folks: what do you want out of the FCB1010 that it doesn't do already?

Lets try and collate a list, with reasons, and I'll stick it up on the
website and draw Behringer's attention to it.

For me:

Documentation of the sysex dump, so we can write an editor. It's great
being able to program the thing standing up for quick fixes, but when I'm
trying to manage a couple of dozen patches for a new set, where I'm moving
presets around, changing effects, etc, on a reasonable-sized rack guitar
rig, it gets very tedious very fast.

A means of instigating a sysex dump or receive via MIDI, simply so that I
won't have to tap dance on the FCB1010 while using the above editor.

hi!
bought the board two days ago and I have just burned the eprom at
work and this evening I'll replace it.
What do you think about warranty?
I will open the machine and place my hands inside... not a nice rule
for the factory warranty...!

Given Behringer provide you with OFFICIAL instructions on how to replace
the EPROM, I do not believe this should invalidate the warranty, PROVIDED
you follow the instructions carefully.

for the V-Amp this one shold be much easier than that and why not
only one editor that handle both of them at the same time?

- is it possible to have also two analog output from the expression
pedals? (actually I do not know if electronically possible)

- MIDI phantom power (is this the real name?) or at least a battery
power

- 1 meter power cable longer? (...$1 more expensive...)

flexible

I don't know that battery power's a good idea: I'd be very nervous of
things failing mid-set. But, yes, MIDI phantom power would be nice, but it
would require a new model of the FCB1010 - it's not something you can do
in software.

- 1 meter power cable longer? (...$1 more expensive...)
At least it's not a captive mains cable, so you can go *buy* another.

- setting to change from 0-127 to 1-128 in one shot, to be more

If there was an editor, it would be easy enough to generate a SysEx file
identical to the default but 1-128.

it goes BACK to the previous patch. This is really handy for quickly

Oh, and a bit of filtering so that the pedal stops sending controller

Hi,

- let's say directly the PC editor to be downloaded, since they do
it
for the V-Amp this one shold be much easier than that and why not
only one editor that handle both of them at the same time?
Why not? Because I use a GT-3. If you are behringer doing this would
make the FCB1010 look like V-Amp add-on product - which it isnt...the
FCB1010 is built to control anything but with extras for the V-
Amp..theres a difference. But yes a PC Editor.

- 1 meter power cable longer? (...$1 more expensive...)
I made my own from shielded power cable - which results in less
electrical interference and hum induction on audio cables - but lets
face it - you can make yourself one for probably 5UKP (7.5$) of the
length you require.

- setting to change from 0-127 to 1-128 in one shot, to be more
flexible
uh what?! The MIDI specification is 0-127. So whats wrong with that?
It is NOT PHYSCIALLY POSSIBLE to transmit 128 - it will ALWAYS be
127. Therefore this is cosmetic, for people who dont like 0-127 and
those who cant +1 mentally...personally with 5 MIDI units in my rack
and 3 in the studio ive not had a problem yet.

- internal program updatable via MIDI
If you mean 'internal program' = 'software' then yes flash
upgradeable would be nice - but starts to increase price...m happy
with burning chips...

- ...help me in playing my guitar...? ;-)
oo....yeah....I want this mod too! me! me! me! me!

My list:

o MIDI Channel assignable on each patch...rather than globally.
o Momentary action
o two values on a CC output BUT independently settable - not
having to set CTL1 and CTL2 to the same CC (I have 5 units ALL of
which I would like to send CC to...)
o Allow sending of up to 16-32 MIDI PC/CC messages rather than
fixing it by the number of pedals physically available...I mean come
on folks - it is software...
o (Already Mentioned) PC Editor - my virtualiser pro and dsp8024
have these already - why not this...
o (Already Mentioned) Version Num displayed on startup i.e. "2.2"
(easy - display doesnt need mod.

That would be the ultimate set of changes for me!

hope this helps,

Re: Wishlist

Dave Marshall <dam718@...>
 

For what it's worth, without coming out with a new revision of the hardware (ie. an FCB2020 or whatever) the flash upgradable EPROM is out of the question. The FCB1010 for now uses a windowed EPROM which is erased using ultraviolet light exposure. The internal board on the FCB1010 I doubt is capable of sending the source voltage on the correct pin of the EPROM necessary to erase a Flash Upgradable EPROM.
 
Although, that is definately something I would like to see on future releases of both the V-AMP and FCB1010.
 
The flip flopping program chages would also be very nice. Hitting one pedal and then a subsequent hit of the same pedal would send you back to the previous program. It's a very nice feature that Digitech has been using for several years now.
 
The main thing to remember here is the FCB1010 is still a baby. I'm sure any future models which Behringer makes will be much more capable and user friendly. You always (Or at least you should) learn from your mistakes. They didn't necessarily make any mistakes in the design of the FCB1010, but now with the user feedback they are no doubt receiving, their predecessor to the FCB1010 will include a slew of new features designed with US in mind.

Expression Pedal B

lespaulicious <darrell.kimball@...>
 

Hiya,

Anyone come up with a cool patch for Expression Pedal B as the
default wah is totally lame?

Thanks!

Peace.

Re: Expression Pedal B

Steve Cavanaugh <steve@...>
 

I must be completely different than many of you, as I'm running both
expression pedals on every patch, but I'm never trying to control my
master volume from the expression pedal (seems like a lot of master
volume controllers out there).

I'm controlling a Cyber Twin with the FCB1010. On all of my patches,
the right pedal controls the patch volume and the left pedal does
something with effects. For the right pedal, I've remapped it to
control the patch volume so that the heel-down position is my rhythm
volume and the toe-down position is my solo volume. I've normalized all
of my patches so that for every patch I get the same level out despite
each patch requiring a different setting of the patch volume knob.
Having my solo volume on an expression pedal instead of a footswitch is
awesome - I can pop it forward for a three note line and instantly rock
it back to rhythm (try that with a footswitch).

On the Cyber Twin, I've found that the patch volume is pretty linear in
that generally whatever value I need for the heel down position,
increasing it by about 25 gets about the level I want for soloing. So
some patches are stored with the patch volume at 55 (thus the solo pedal
increases that to 80) and some are stored with patch volume of 80 (thus
solo is 105).

For many of my patches, I use the left pedal to increase the effect
level, setting the heel down position to 00 and the toe down position to
whatever sounds right. So I can start a solo dry, and fade an effect in
throughout the solo if that's what I want. On one patch, I use it to
control the gain of the patch, thus having a cleaner tone until I take a
solo (push down both pedals at the same time). Then on one patch, I use
the left pedal to control the delay time for different effects. I've
also used it to control vibrato speed and vibratone speed, but I'm not
using those anymore.

The only down side to all of this is I'm having a hard time remembering
which patches have what controls set up. Since I've only had the
FCB1010 for a few weeks, I've only used it live once. I'm sure I'll
remember once I've used it live a few more times. Wish the FCB had an
alpha display...(hint hint).

Hey Steve,
 
I guess I should have been clearer. I'm using my FCB1010 with a (mod'ed v.2) Behringer V-Amp. It's the V-Amp's EQ algo that is totally bogus. Thus, the mid-sweeping wah is junk.
 
It sounds like you have a good working setup!
 
I kow exactly what you mean about remembering what's what. On the V-Amp forum a guy asked for a FCB2020/V-Amp 3 wish list. My only entry was an editable alphanumeric readout.
 
What kind of craziness ensues when you sweep delay rates?
 
I'm looking for some kind of sweepable modulation that blows people away. I think I need the V.2.2 EPROM for the FCB first...
 
Thanks for your time.

Subject: RE: [fcb1010] Expression Pedal B

I must be completely different than many of you, as I'm running both
expression pedals on every patch, but I'm never trying to control my
master volume from the expression pedal (seems like a lot of master
volume controllers out there).

I'm controlling a Cyber Twin with the FCB1010.  On all of my patches,
the right pedal controls the patch volume and the left pedal does
something with effects.  For the right pedal, I've remapped it to
control the patch volume so that the heel-down position is my rhythm
volume and the toe-down position is my solo volume.  I've normalized all
of my patches so that for every patch I get the same level out despite
each patch requiring a different setting of the patch volume knob.
Having my solo volume on an expression pedal instead of a footswitch is
awesome - I can pop it forward for a three note line and instantly rock
it back to rhythm (try that with a footswitch).

On the Cyber Twin, I've found that the patch volume is pretty linear in
that generally whatever value I need for the heel down position,
increasing it by about 25 gets about the level I want for soloing.  So
some patches are stored with the patch volume at 55 (thus the solo pedal
increases that to 80) and some are stored with patch volume of 80 (thus
solo is 105).

For many of my patches, I use the left pedal to increase the effect
level, setting the heel down position to 00 and the toe down position to
whatever sounds right.  So I can start a solo dry, and fade an effect in
throughout the solo if that's what I want.  On one patch, I use it to
control the gain of the patch, thus having a cleaner tone until I take a
solo (push down both pedals at the same time).  Then on one patch, I use
the left pedal to control the delay time for different effects.  I've
also used it to control vibrato speed and vibratone speed, but I'm not
using those anymore.

The only down side to all of this is I'm having a hard time remembering
which patches have what controls set up.  Since I've only had the
FCB1010 for a few weeks, I've only used it live once.  I'm sure I'll
remember once I've used it live a few more times.  Wish the FCB had an
alpha display...(hint hint).

Hiya,

Anyone come up with a cool patch for Expression Pedal B as the
default wah is totally lame?

Thanks!

Peace.

The wah in the Cyber Twin is pretty weak too - I use an outboard Budda Wah for that.  I'm also thinking about hauling out my tried and true Ernie Ball volume pedal and sticking it in the CT's controller input, thus having three continuouse controllers.  I'll find something to do with the third pedal I'm sure....

Hi,

Barry, I've looked over the manual and I don't find anything like
what
you've described. Can you supply a paragraph number?
Its called 'Running Status'described in the v1.2 manual in 4.2.4, and
set under 2.2 GLOBAL SETUP.

Go into global set-up - press up til you ge into config mode - then
pedal 9 is the running status one. Enable this and the MIDI stream of
identical bytes disappears. As I said - manyof my other units (incl a
Behringer DSP8024) have lights to show MIDI present...these are
definitely 'dark' even though I use the expression pedals for volume -
they only light when I move controls/stand on pedals...

Hope this helps,
Barry
