Re: CC Messages EXP Pedal

EJ SHELDON
 

Load the attached in ControlCenter. It's set up for Amplitube, but works fine with BIAS, as BIAS ignores the Stomp Toggle Values anyway.

Before the Expression pedals will send, you have to step on either a preset or stomp to which the expression pedal has been assigned.Note that I have the expression pedals in every preset AND the Stomps.  By setting them up everywhere it doesn't matter what button you press first, they're active.

IIRC, since BIAS ignores CC ranges, you can't set up the pedal to activate at a specified value, so if you're using a WAH and want to be able to fake a toe switch, you're SOL.


CC Messages EXP Pedal

Hi,

 

I am working in Bias FX and I want to assign an EXP Pedal to a Volume pedal. I assume you would need to assign the Vol Pedal to an effects block and then define  the range, is this correct?  Also when in the Editor if I enable MIDI monitoring I do not see any CC messages when moving the pedal, should I be able to see real time values in the MIDI monitor?  I have attached several images for your review, Patches 104 – 105 have been set up for EXP Pedal, still truing to figure out what the value is under the check box for enabling the EXP Pedal. Please advise

Yup. That's my interface.  I didn't see it listed in the database, so I wasn't sure if it is compatible or not.

In my last reply I described saving the Global Configuration using the DOWN pedal after setting Sysex Receive. You shouldn't need to re-set it unless you've done a factory reset.

Anyway, glad you've got it working. Rock On!

Re: HX Stomp

Thanks, but I couldn't have done it without your help!

I found a typo in the sysex I posted and I decided to make a tweak already.  The mode control on FS6/bank0 has the wrong CC1# and value, and it does not need a CC2# (which is what the CC1# should be).  I the moved that function to FS9, thereby giving me better consistency across all the banks.

I did a factory reset and I'm still getting the same behaviour.  I've determined that you are correct -- the sysex gets to the FCB, even though the process never completes.  I also see if I don't select FS7="sysex rcv" again, the process completes without reporting an error.  It's hard to know if it's actually working since the first/hung attempt actually did complete the transfer.

I wish I had another USB/midi interface that is known to work to try...

Thanks again.

Re: HX Stomp

Congratulations, you're making great progress for a MIDI newbie!

I've got so many versions of that sysex floating around, I really need to sort them out! That Tap Tempo/NOTE configuration is leftover from my attempt to get Tap Tempo working the Behringer way. Epic fail! Kudos for working it out on your own!

The Upload /Download issues should be fixable. Start by doing a factory reset on the FCB (boot holding 1+6). When you boot again into Configuration mode, set sysex Receive, then hold down the DOWN pedal till the display returns to 00 That saves the new configuration, and you shouldn't have to reset sysex receive again unless you do another factory reset. That should fix the DL problem. If it still hangs, stop the process and test the physical FCB pedals in the MIDI IN Monitor window - click Global Configuration twice, depending where you're at. It's the panel on the lower right. Click the little connector icon so it turns red, Now it'll receive from the FCB. Click it again to clear it - it's a tiny panel and the data gets hard to read. I've found that usually, when the DL hangs, it's actually done, and the data is in the FCB. It's a problem that seems to have started with one of Microsoft's wonderful mandatory updates. AARGH!

Xavier, if you're reading this......

The Upload problem was probably cured by the Factory reset. Sometimes when you make a bunch of changes, the FCB gets corrupted. Anytime it starts acting weird out of the blue, that's probably what happened Do the reset, DL your sysex again, you should be good.

I just had a look at your screenshot. You really have done well learning ControlCenter!



Re: HX Stomp

Ryan DiDomizio
 

Rd2rk,

I just wanted to get back to you since you've helped me so much...

Just a reminder, I'm the guy with the new HX Stomp and new FCB1010 (Stock Firmware Version 2.5, BTW) who has never messed with Midi till now.

Whew, I spent a long day, yesterday, configuring both the HXS and the FCB.

I bought a copy of Control Center as you suggested.  I had a small issue getting my registration key, but that has been straightened out (they use your primary paypal email address to send you the key.  Mine was incorrect!).

I did not use the sysex file you sent me, but instead, I used it as a jumping off point to start from scratch.  I've included all the files I created yesterday, in case anyone else finds them useful or instructional.

 1) The tuner is working fine.  Not sure why I couldn't get it working before, but no issues now.
 2) The tap tempo config you sent me did not work (note=127).  But, CC#64, 64&127 works just fine!
 3) Bank 0 is my ground zero (pun intended).  I could use only that bank and still play gigs with it.
 4) Banks 1-9/FS1 call HXS preset 1-9, SnapShot1 respectively, like the file you sent me.
 5) Banks 1-9 have tap tempo setup on FS9 and HXS FS1-3 emulated on FS6-8.  
 6) All banks have FS4 & 5 emulating HXS FS4 & 5.  The HXS is programmed to scroll down/up one preset on those footswitches.
 7) All banks universally have FS10 call the tuner on/off.
 8) All banks universally have FS1-3 select SnapShots 1-3.
 9) Bank 0 has the HXS mode=up scrolling function on FS6, so HXS FS1-3 emulation is shifted to FS7-9, eliminating the tap tempo on that bank.

I put a little thought into this and I reorganized the presets on my HXS so that presets 1-7 are my most used presets.  Of course I set up the HXS so that their numbers match the banks that call them so I have a reference back to the HXS display that matches up, keeping in mind that I must press FS1 after selecting the bank to actually change the HXS preset.

I'm gigging this weekend, so I'll get a chance to try this out.  I'm looking forward to the improvements.

I am having trouble with downloading/uploading the sysex files... could be my USB/Midi interface is not compatible with Control Center.  I'm using a MIO.

When I put the FCB in config mode and press sysex receive (FS7) and then try to download to it from the PC, the midi icon grays-out and the cursor spins and the indicator on the bottom right of the screen all show they are busy, but it never finishes or gives an error.  I can let it go for an hour and it never gets out of that mode.  If I press the MIDI-connection icon on the upper left, it stops.  If I repeat the process at that point, it seems to work fine!  I save the config and everything is there!

I have a different issue when I try to upload from the FCB to the PC...  that process works, but the sysex presets are all out of order and it keeps changing from "regular" mode to "direct select" mode after each attempt.

I will send an email to the Control Center folks, but I fear it has something to do with the interface I'm using.

Again, I can't thank you enough for all your help.  I see that I'm not to only one you've been helping out, either.  I owe you, big time -- thanks for making this and the other groups you participate in so helpful.  I hope someday I can return the favor!

Ryan D.


Re: FCB1010 Uno with Amplitube

EJ SHELDON
 

You need to set both the MIDI IN and MIDI OUT ports, and have both connected.
But, yeah, it's probably because that's the part of the trial that's disabled.
Lots of people use that interface, so no worries about buying the license.


Re: FCB1010 Uno with Amplitube

Nala Lee
 

I did set the midi in device to my midiman and selected the slot that I had FCB connected and clicked the midi port sign on the editor, but still no luck.

The status bar says 'timed out' and connection status still says it's not connected.

I tried the Behringer Editor again to see if it reads my switches and pedals and it does...

Any idea what's causing this??  Is it because I'm on trial mode???

On the menu bar, click setup/select midi ports. Select the MIDIMAN for both ports. Click OK.

On the upper left side of the FCB image you'll see a round DIN connector icon. Click it. That establishes the connection.


Re: If the fbc1010 plugs in to the amp, do you need a midi to record? Or, will a few mics going to a mixer board with a usb work good enough?

EJ SHELDON
 

Yes, you can put any PC# on any FCB Preset Pedal. You can do that manually (read the FCB manual - Good Luck!) OR you can DL an editor. IF you have the STOCK FCB chip, go here:


Be sure to also DL the instructions for use.

If you did the 1+7 reset, your unit will be set up to send PC#s consecutively. You can use the editor to change that order however you like.

Thank you for attaching the manual. My amp has 100 presets.  I had the understanding that I could put any preset # on and bank and pedal?  Is that wrong?  I need to switch banks to reach higher presets?  The YouTube videos are not good and they are confusing.  I will read the manual

My amp has four Cab simulators.  I can’t wait till I start setting this up.  There seem to be 10 banks of 10 settings.  That sounds like an awe full lot.  I could use a few.  One bank per guitar?  Am I missing something about these banks?

Which would be better depends on your needs (simple, multi-track, track at a time, ensemble), what you already have, and budget.

I just did install the editor from your comment, but the control center shows no FCB1010 is connected.

When I tried with the Behringer's editor, it was reading the switches and the pedal before....

Any idea what's causing the Behringer software to work while the control center doesn't?

The Ed Dixon Editor won't work with the UNO Chip - that's why it says "Unknown Version". You NEED the ControlCenter Editor to make this work.

I'm using MIdiman 4X4 to plus my edrum (In Slot A) and FCB (In Slot B) to my PC.

Just noticed the editor program I had installed is not the same as what you described, I was using Behringer FCB1010 MIDI Edit Utility.

I will try with the editor you mentioned and see what happens!

Thank you!
