Ahh, this is how I have it set up. The midi light on my Cyber Twin is
usually dark. But quite often, without any intervention on my part, the
midi light illuminates and the Cyber Twin's display indicates that it
has received a volume command from the pedal. If I reprogram the pedal
to send master volume, the Cyber Twin will indicate periodic Master
Volume commands without any footpedal movement. I believe that the
pedal is sensitive to vibrations or it's design just doesn't have enough
hysteresis in the sensor design, but whatever, a little filtering here
seems in order. It is quite clearly the FCB1010 sending the current
expression pedal position without having the pedal moved, but it is NOT
doing this at any specific period, i.e., it is totally random.

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

Repeater with FCB1010

evanmeyers <evanmeyers@...>
 

Greetings! Does anyone know where to find a correct midi
implementation chart for use of the fcb1010 with the repeater (made
by electrix)?

I can't seem to find one and the one in the repeater manual doesn't
coincide properly with the fcb1010's setup. please email me at
evanmeyers@... with any help!

Thanks!
evan

Sequence of MIDI message transmission

bradediger <_@...>
 

I just bought my FCB1010 today - nice piece! I plan on using it to
control the Lexicon MPX 500 that I also bought today. (I already had
to recalibrate both of the expression pedals - thank you all for the
helpful and available information on that!).

One quirk about the Lexicon unit: to select a program, you have to
send a controller 32 message (Bank Select) with a value from 0 to 24
and then a Program Change message with a value from 0 to 9 to select
patches within a bank. As it is, selecting both a controller and
program change in one patch on the FCB1010 causes them to be sent in
an unpredictable order. The Lexicon wants the bank select message
first, and then the program change message. Is there any easy way to
reliably select a program given these limitations?

Thanks
Brad

Clearly not simple latch switches...

michaeljohnslade <mjs@...>
 

Ok, I'm confused about the 'channel switching' output on the
FCB1010. I was using one to control the mute on my DTR1 tuner and it
worked fine as an open/close latching switch. Then I tried to use
the other to control the bypass on my compressor and just plugging in
another cable causes the first switch to somehow behave differently
and now my tuner is always in mute mode (yippee says the audience).
I can't find anywhere in the manual that describes the behaviour of
these two switches and why using both would make the first behave
differently. Anybody have an idea as to what it going on here?

-Mike.

Stumped

Steve Cavanaugh <steve@...>
 

OK, I've had my FCB for about a month, and I've set it up quite nicely.
Things are going smashingly. With a few exceptions, this is the pedal
I've always longed for.

But one thing has me wondering. What exactly would I do with five
program changes on a single patch all on the same midi channel? I can't
fathom how this could be used, since any device responding to a given
channel will respond to all five midi program change commands. Am I
missing something, or is this feature utterly worthless?

FCB1010 and J-Station...

Frank Chiappetta <frank.chiappetta@...>
 

Hi - I've just purchased a FCB1010 and am looking to getting it to work with
my J-Station. Is there anything out there that will assist me in achieving
this goal? FAQ/Tutorials, etc.? (anyone else in this group using the
FCB1010 to control a J-Station?) Unfortunately, I'm relatively new to MIDI
and am having a difficult time with the programming instructions that came
with the FCB1010.
Thanks for your time,

Quite simply you assign 5 different midi channels....

In my rack my FCB1010 controls a GT-3, Kenton GS8, Behringer DSP8024,
Behringer DSP1000P and also a Rocktron Intellifex Ltd.

I DONT operate these all on one channel - as PC switchover results in
an auidble gap on the GT-3 and the DSP1000P. Therefore using separate
channels allows me to switch some units but not others....thus I can
turn delay on/off on the intellifex without interrupting the audio
path.

Hoep this helps,
Barry

Wait a minute.... I quote the manual: "The MIDI channels for each MIDI
function are not set in PRESET programming mode, but globally for all
PRESETS..."

If you set the MIDI channel globally, how can you assign 5 different
MIDI channels for one program change? Further, I see nowhere in the
manual that provides a place to enter five different MIDI channels
during programming of a single patch.

Walk me through it if you don't mind - if you can really do what you're
saying, not only is that GREAT, the manual is completely wrong.

I don't own one - but my interpretation of that passage is that you assign independent channels for each of the 5 possible program changes (available in each patch) globally, not IN each patch and not that all 5 are assigned using a single channel.

er...yes. And those 5 MIDI channels are what the 5 PC messages are
sent on.

No you set 5 MIDI channels - and each preset is a PC to send on
*that* MIDI channel.

MIDI channels for one program change? Further, I see nowhere in the

You cannot do different midi channels per patch. I wish you could.

Therefore what you do is this...globally you set up the 5 MIDI
channels you wish to use....then in each patch you can optionally set
a PC to send on that channel...does that make it clearer?

Walk me through it if you don't mind - if you can really do what
you're
saying, not only is that GREAT, the manual is completely wrong.
OK...

Lets say we are controlling 2 devices...

Box X - MIDI Channel 5
Box Y - MIDI Channel 7


1. In global we set PC1 - MIDI Channel 5, PC2 - MIDI Channel 7
2. In the Patch we set the PC that we want on MIDI Channel 5 in PC1.
(PC1 is what is assigned on pedal 1)
3. In the patch we set the PC that we want on MIDI channel 7 in PC2.

If we want the same PC on both channel 5 & 7 we set the PC to be the
same in the patch for both PC1 and PC2. If we only want to switch Box
X we would enable and set a PC in PC1 but would disble PC2 (thus Box
Y would not get a PC).

Does that help? If not Ill try again!

Hi,

Only note on can be sent. It will have a duration of 0. As for 'from
all 10 switches' what do you mean? There are 100 patches - each patch
can send 1 single note on message.

Dont see where the number of pedals comes into it - if the unit only
had 5 there are still 100 patches...so youve confused me
there...sorry!

Hope this helps,
Barry

Re: Note On/Off Messages

Darrell Kimball <darrell.kimball@...>
 

The FCB1010 v2.2 upgrade EPROM allows you to toggle patches on and off with one switch; i.e., pedal 1 controls distortion on and off, of course, the less than verbose manual doesn't say anything about your question.
 
I just got my upgrade chip last night and haven't installed it yet but I want to implement the same functionality as you. I'll post what I find after the upgrade. So what I CAN tell you is that you can't toggle patches on/off with one pedal without the v.2.2 upgrade.
 
Peace.

Assumptions and Questions

arjay_bimmer <rfreve@...>
 

In an attempt to improve my comprehension of how to program my
FCB1010 I will list some assumptions that i have developed since
bringing this beauty home on Wednesday (5/8/02) and some questions
that if answered will prevent me form going insane. Also, please
tell me fi my assumptions are correct. I will develop a file to post
(If the moderator thinks that's a good idea to help other sin the
future with similar problems or questions. I am trying to control a
Behringer Guitar Amplifier, the GX210 Ultratwin. So you'd think it
would be easy, but I'm not getting there. So on with the show.....

ASSUMPTIONS
1.Global setup determines how the FCB100 will function, e.g diredt
select, whether up switch and down switch control relays.

2.Preset are more commonly called patches.

3.That I am editing the FCB1010 presets and I am not affecting the
presets on the guitar amplifier.

4.This is supposed ot be easy, so I must be stupid.

As an experiment I wanted to:

Change preset #02 to change the amp preset to #70.
Change amp channel to channel #2(Overdrive)
Use Expression Pedal A to change amp preset effect A (Depth)
Use Expression Pedal B to change amp preset effect B (Mix)

So here is what i did....

1.Selected preset #02 and then held down the down footswitch.
2.Did not know what to do on the next step which is to change the
status of Switches 1 and 2 (Don't what that means or what that does)
so I tried all variations.
3.Edited footswitch 1, or ,2 or 3 (tried them all one at at time of
course) to issue program change # 124 or tried footswitch #6 and
changed controller to #10 and issue a value of 1 to change amp
channel.
4.Edited footswitch #1 to issue program change #69.

An here is what happened.......
My amp preset chnged to #70. That's it.

In all of my attempts I was able to change the amp channel to #2
(Overdrive) once but could not turn it off. As a matter of fact
regradless of which preset I chose it stayed on Channel #2.

QUESTIONS?

Am I on the right track in thinking I can get the desired results as
stated above?

How do you program the relay switches, and what does changing the
status of switches in preset programming for?

Do I have to enter #'s 09 if I want let's say to use controller #10?

Can I create a wah effect using the expression pedals?

I promise to create a faq or some sort of help file to help others
in the future. I sure I'll have more questions so PLEASE be patient.
Thanks in advance for any help at all.

OLD ROM? SHOULD I JUST RETURN IT?

yodaono <apollo@...>
 

I just received my FCB1010 from Musician's Friend today, and am
having some trouble figuring out how to make it work with my Boss VF-
1 effects processor to get the controller/processor to work like a
simple array of stomp boxes. To start with, I tried to get pedal #4
to turn on the Wah and expression pedal #1 to control the Wah.

After an hour of trying to make it work I turned to the Internet,
only to read that to get a pedal to simply toggle an effect on and
off, I have to replace a ROM chip?? Is this for real?

The Web page went on to say that version 2.2 of the controller has
fixed this problem. Alas, my manual says version 1.1 (brand new! just
shipped yesterday!) so I assume this unit is the old version.

I don't want to have to modify this thing to get it to work right. I
have better things to do than sit around and wait for a ROM chip to
come in the mail from god knows where, and then have to figure out
how to put it in, probably voiding my warranty in the process.

I'm ready to pack this thing up and ship it back.

If there is anything someone can say that'll make me change my mind
and lessen the pain of this whole experience, please do! From
(almost) everything I've seen and read, this looks like the greatest
value in a MIDI foot controller. If only the documentation had some
concrete examples, and you don't have to replace a ROM chip to get it
to work right!
