Re: FCB1010 Uno Expression pedals oscillating between two values

ossandust
 

My guess is that you are using UnO firmware v.1.4. The problem can be solved by ordering an older version of the UnO firmware - v.1.3. The original firmware had a large "threshold" to avoid this kind of problem (possibly caused by excessive noise on the power supply, or by degraded capacitors on the power line which no longer filter out the noise sufficiently). The problem with the original firmware was that the expression pedals only start sending MIDI messages after moving the pedals quite a bit, making the pedal behavior unresponsive. Many complained about that, therefore in UnO v.1.4 that large threshold was removed, but on some units this can cause the issue which you describe.


FCB1010 Uno Expression pedals oscillating between two values

Dave Abbott
 

Hello All

The problem is really explained by the topic title. every so often when either of the expression pedals is in a certain position I can see that the display is oscillating between two values. This is a problem as these values are being sent via midi to Guitar Rig which is what I use. Anybody got any ideas as to how to cure this.?

Best Regards

Re: Portamento CC SWEEP question #UnO2

I was able to get this after stepping away for a day and reading more.  This will turn Portamento ON and change the foot switches to CC's 5 and 84.  When the switch is OFF the pedals return to CC's 4 and 74.

EFFECT_ON pPortamento =
{
   SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 65 127
   Pedal 1 = PortAmount 
   Pedal 2 = PortTime 
}
EFFECT_OFF pPortamento =
{
   SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 65 0
   Pedal 1 = Foot
   Pedal 2 = Brightness
}



Re: MONO ON / POLY ON keyboard midi help needed

rcharlier3
 

Thank you for the quick and accurate reply on this.  I'm testing this on a Korg NS5R right now, but because of the MIDI standard this should work on almost anything.
I must have had the CC's flipped around because with this modification the pedal works exactly the way I want it to.  Easier, one single pedal.

When I press the pedal, the light goes ON, and I know that MONO is enabled.  When the light is off, POLY is on.

EFFECT_ON MonoPoly = 
{
SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 126 0
SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 127 127
 
EFFECT_OFF MonoPoly = 
{
SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 126 127
SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 127 0
}

You didn't say what synth you're using, so I'm guessing here:

EFFECT_ON MonoPoly = 
{
SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 126 127
SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 127 0
 
EFFECT_OFF MonoPoly = 
{
SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 126 0
SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 127 127
}   


First press turns MONO ON/POLY OFF
Second press turns MONO OFF/POLY ON

Let me know if it works.


Portamento CC SWEEP question #UnO2

New #UnO2 user.  My first week with the device.

I've made a pedal to turn PORTAMENTO ON or OFF.  That works fine.
When PORTAMENTO is ON, I'm trying to change the sweep pedals 1 and 2 to PortTime and PortAmount.
 
 
 
The "SendMidi" commands work fine, turns Port ON and OFF, the light follows the status, all is good.
SWEEP PortTime = SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 5 0-127
SWEEP PortAmount = SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 84 0-127
 
PRESET pPortamento =
{
   SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 65 127
   Pedal 1 = PortAmount 
   Pedal 2 = PortTime 
}
PRESET_RELEASE pPortamento = SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 65 0
 
 
and then later on in my setup I want to make my power on defaults for the switches to be Foot and Brightness.  That works fine.
 
INIT_FCB = 
{
   Pedal 1 = Foot
   Pedal 2 = Brightness
}
 
When I press the footswitch for Portamento ON/OFF, it does toggle that setting, but my pedals stay as Foot and Brightness and never change to PortAmount and PortTime.
 
What is the simple step that I am missing?


MONO ON / POLY ON keyboard midi help needed

New #UnO2 user.  My first week with the device.
Midi+synth+keyboard person, not a guitarist.
 
A few questions:
I had hoped to make a pedal to turn MONO ON (and poly off).  If it is lit up, MONO is on, and if it is not lit up, MONO is off (and so POLY is ON).
 
Gave up on that for the moment and instead thought "I'll make a pedal that will just turn MONO ON and another pedal that will turn POLY ON.  Having some trouble with that.  Its been a long day so I'm missing something basic.
 
With TWO presses of this pedal I can get MONO ON.  Further presses of the pedal do nothing.  (and that's fine for now).
 
Note:
126 = CC for MONO
127 = CC for POLY
 
 
PRESET pMono =
{
   SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 126 0
   SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 127 0
}
PRESET_RELEASE pMono = 
{
   SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 126 127
   SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 127 127
}
 
 
With TWO presses of this pedal I can get POLY ON.  Further presses of the pedal do nothing.  (and that's fine for now).
PRESET pPoly =
{
   SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 127 127
   SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 126 127
}
PRESET_RELEASE pPoly =
{
   SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 127 0
   SendMidi chOne CtrlChange 126 0
}
 
 
Why does this take two presses?
 
 
Any suggestions on the correct code to make one pedal "MONO ON when pressed and the light is lit, POLY ON if pressed again and the light is off"?

Haha no worries! I was a bit perplexed! Haha

I've been putting it all together today so I'll likely post mine at some point soon! 


Re: Uno 2 and Ableton Live #UnO2

EJ SHELDON
 

DOH!

Don't I feel stupid!

Apparently, I never posted it, and had it in a local directory when my laptop went belly up!

I still have the regular UNO version that I made, maybe over the weekend I'll convert it.

Thanks for looking!

Not sure if I'm being really dense but I can't see it in there?


Re: Uno 2 and Ableton Live #UnO2

EJ SHELDON
 

In the FILES section under EJ's UNO2, I posted a looper control file for Ableton.
I don't really use Ableton or looping on a regular basis, and I wrote the file more as a fun exercise than anything else.
As you are a regular Ableton user, if you'd give it a try, I'd be interested in your opinion. 
Thanks!


Re: Uno 2 and Ableton Live #UnO2

mathesonewan@...
 

I know this is a few months on but I wanted to respond, although new to UnO2 (I only got it yesterday!) I'm relatively comfortable with programming and have also been using MIDI and Ableton for over ten years now.  I'm just working through planning my Ableton looping setup just now so I'm sure with the similarities between the setups I'm sure we could help each other!

How are you getting on with it?

Cheers
Ewan

Indeed with the current UnO2 firmware the expression pedals cannot send SysEx messages. I have recently spent quite some time to see if such feature was feasible for the UnO2 firmware, and now I can confirm this will most probably be added to a next firmware release. 
You will be able to specify something like 

SWEEP volume = SendSysEx F0 12 34 value 56 F7
and this sysex message will be sent when you move the expression pedal, with "value" replaced by the actual pedal position
You can also combine it with the other available sweep options ( modified value range and/or modified sweep curve ) :
SWEEP volume = SendSysEx F0 12 34 value 56 F7 10-100 SlowRising


Re: Very Simple UnO2 Katana mkii Patch #file-notice

Just realised I didn't really do anything with the exp pedals. I'll make sure they work and update. 


Very Simple UnO2 Katana mkii Patch #file-notice

mathesonewan@...
 

Should be available in the files folder.  I just received my UnO2 firmware EPROM this morning and wrote an extremely simple layout for my Katana mkii head.

2 Banks
Bank 1:
Switches 1-4 - Amp Channels 1-4
Switch 5 - Panel
Switches 6-10 Stompboxes for the Boost, Mod, FX, Delay, Reverb

Bank 2:
Switches 1-4 - Amp Channels 6-8
Switch 5 - Panel
Switches 6-10 Stompboxes for Boost, Mod, FX, Delay, Reverb

This was just a first attempt at something, took a while to figure out (MIDI programme changes needed to be offset but the control changes didn't... weird.) but got there in the end.

This is just a basis for a much more complicated integrated multi MIDI setup with full Ableton integration too.  Glad this first stage was relatively painless!

Bome also makes the Bome Box, which is programmed just like MIDI Translator.  Once it's programmed, you don't need the computer connected, and it runs on it's own (with power, obviously..).  It's not cheap at over $200 US, but it does work well.


Re: FCB1010UNO2 as FC-300 for Roland Fr-4x #UnO2

Thank you for the information.
I found the answer from ossandust.
With Bome MIDI Translator it works, I would have prefferred a solution without the computer active.

As far as I know you cannot use SysEX output for Sweeps.  I think I asked this question when I got UNO2 about a month ago.

You would need to run your SysEX through an external program such as Bome MIDI Translator Pro to handle the conversion from CC to SysEX.

Hi Heinrich,

I have the same problem with my Roland FR-8x. I’m able to select my User Programs, but don’t know how to access Volume on the Expression Pedal or any of the effects (Chorus, Leslie Fast/Slow, Sustain, etc.) I’m also lost when it comes to understanding how to input the Sysex values/variables (or even what they are..)

Could you post what you have in your UnO2 FR-4x setup? I've attached my test FR-8x setups for Internal sounds and User Program sounds.

And please let us know if you find anything.

Regards,
Alf
