The FCB will send out the following MIDI commands per preset (there are 100 available in the FCB):
 

  • Program Change (5)
  • MIDI Controller (2)
  • MIDI Continuous Controller/Expression Pedal (2)
  • MIDI Note (1)


If your unit can accept these commands, it should work well as a controller.

 

YOU MUST TRANSMIT FCB1010 MESSAGES/COMMANDS ON THE SAME MIDI CHANNEL AS THE DEVICE BEING CONTROLLED IS RECEIVING MESSAGES/COMMANDS ON IN ORDER TO SEE/HEAR ANY CHANGE ON THE DEVICE BEING CONTROLLED.

 

Getting a MIDI message to transmit on a specific MIDI channel.

 

For example, getting the MIDI Message programmed into Expression Pedal "A" to transmit on MIDI Channel #1:

-power up FCB while holding down the DOWN pedal for over 2 seconds to enter GLOBAL SETUP MODE
-press ENTER
-press EXP A pedal #9
-press ENTER
-use the pedals to program in "0" and "1" to set the MIDI Channel for transmission of all Expression Pedal A information to MIDI Channel #1
-press ENTER
-press the DOWN pedal for over 2 seconds to exit GLOBAL SETUP MODE

You have now programmed the FCB1010 to send out any/all Expression Pedal A commands on MIDI Channel #1.

This same MIDI Channel assignment/theory described above applies to all of the message types sent by the FCB1010 - MIDI Program Change, MIDI Control, Expression Pedal, and MIDI Note commands/messages. Simply substitute the appropriate message in the third step above.

For example, getting the MIDI Message programmed into MIDI Note pedals to transmit on MIDI Channel #16:

-power up FCB while holding down the DOWN pedal for over 2 seconds to enter GLOBAL SETUP MODE
-press ENTER
-press MIDI NOTE pedal #10
-press ENTER
-use the pedals to program in "1" and "6" to set the MIDI Channel for transmission of all MIDI Note information to MIDI Channel #16
-press ENTER
-press the DOWN pedal for over 2 seconds to exit GLOBAL SETUP MODE

You have now programmed the FCB1010 to send out any/all MIDI Note commands on MIDI Channel #16.

 


Programming a MIDI Program Change command (typically used for changing banks, presets, etc.):

 

In this example, a program change command of "001" is being programmed into FCB preset #01:

Select the pedal/preset on the FCB1010 you wish to program... For example:

If you are working in DIRECT SELECT ENABLED mode = press pedal number "0" and then "1" to start programming preset #01

If you are working in DIRECT SELECT DISABLED mode = this same preset number (#01 in this example) would be accessed by pressing the UP pedal until "00" is in the display, then pressing pedal "1" (in DIRECT SELECT DISABLED MODE)

-press the DOWN pedal for more than 2 seconds to enter PRESET PROGRAMMING MODE
-press ENTER
-press pedal 1 until it is lit constantly (skip this step if it is already lit)
-press pedal 1 until it flashes
-press ENTER
-using the pedals, press "0" and "1" for a program change of "1"
-press ENTER
-press the DOWN pedal for more than 2 seconds to exit PRESET PROGRAMMING MODE

You have now programmed a MIDI program change command of "1" into preset #01 of the FCB.

To continue programming a program change command of "002" into FCB preset #02:

If you are working in DIRECT SELECT ENABLED mode = press pedal number "0" and then "2" to start programming preset #02

If you are working in DIRECT SELECT DISABLED mode = this same preset number (#02 in this example) would be accessed by pressing the UP pedal until "00" is in the display, then pressing pedal "2" (in DIRECT SELECT DISABLED MODE)

-select preset #02 in the FCB to begin programming preset #02 with a program change command
-press the DOWN pedal for more than 2 seconds to enter PRESET PROGRAMMING MODE
-press ENTER
-press pedal 1 until it is lit constantly (skip this step if it is already lit)
-press pedal 1 until it flashes
-press ENTER
-using the pedals, press "0" and "2" for a program change of "2"
-press ENTER
-press the DOWN pedal for more than 2 seconds to exit PRESET PROGRAMMING MODE

You have now programmed a MIDI program change command of "2" into preset #02 of the FCB.

 

 

Programming a MIDI Control Message (typically used for accessing delay functions, turning effects on/off, etc.) using MIDI Controller message #14 into Pedal 6 as an example (MIDI Control commands/messages are also referred to as MIDI "cc" commands/messages):

 

Select the pedal/preset on the FCB1010 you wish to program... For example:

If you are working in DIRECT SELECT ENABLED mode = press pedal number "0" and then "1" to start programming preset #01

If you are working in DIRECT SELECT DISABLED mode = this same preset number (#01 in this example) would be accessed by pressing the UP pedal until "00" is in the display, then pressing pedal "1" (in DIRECT SELECT DISABLED MODE)

-power up FCB
-press the DOWN pedal for over 2 seconds to enter PRESET PROGRAMMING MODE
-press ENTER (UP)
-press pedal #6 until it lights solid (skip this step if it is already lit)
-press the #6 again briefly until it flashes
-press ENTER (UP)
-use the pedals to program in "1" and "4" for "14" in the display
-press ENTER (UP)
-use the pedals to program in controller "value" for cc 14 (e.g. a value between 0-127)
-press ENTER (UP)
-press the DOWN pedal for over 2 seconds to exit PRESET PROGRAMMING MODE

You can program a MIDI Controller Message into Pedal 7 as well... The message number and value number above is an example. The exact numbers will depend on the MIDI Implementation Chart (information in the manual) for the device you are trying to control, and what paramter you are trying to change (e.g. delay off, FX on, etc.)

 

 

Programming Expression Pedal B (expression pedal messages are typically used for volume or "wah" pedal control, etc.):

 

In this example, the Expression Pedal is being programmed using a MIDI Control number of 14, and a value range of 0-127. Let's assume - for example only - that MIDI Control number 14 corresponds to a "wah pedal" control on the device being controlled by the FCB1010 (the actual parameter this MIDI Control message will control is determined by the receiving device's MIDI Implementation...)

Select the pedal/preset on the FCB1010 you wish to program... For example:

If you are working in DIRECT SELECT ENABLED mode = press pedal number "0" and then "1" to start programming preset #01

If you are working in DIRECT SELECT DISABLED mode = this same preset number (#01 in this example) would be accessed by pressing the UP pedal until "00" is in the display, then pressing pedal "1" (in DIRECT SELECT DISABLED MODE)

-power up FCB
-press the DOWN pedal for over 2 seconds to enter PRESET PROGRAMMING MODE
-press ENTER (UP)
-press the EXP B pedal #9 until it lights solid (skip this step if it is already lit)
-press the EXP B pedal #9 again briefly until it flashes
-press ENTER (UP)
-use the pedals to program in "1" and "4" for "14" in the display
-press ENTER (UP)
-use the pedals to program in the lowest controller value for cc 14 (e.g. a value between 0-127)
-press ENTER (UP)
-use the pedals to program in the highest controller value for cc 14 (e.g. a value between 0-127)
-press ENTER (UP)
-press the DOWN pedal for over 2 seconds to exit PRESET PROGRAMMING MODE

You have now programmed Expression Pedal B to send out MIDI Control number 14, with a range of 0-127 (e.g. "off" to full range/max level). To program Expression Pedal A with the same information, you would simply follow the same procedure above - substituting pedal #8 in steps four and five above.

For example:

-power up FCB
-press the DOWN pedal for over 2 seconds to enter PRESET PROGRAMMING MODE
-press ENTER (UP)
-press the EXP A pedal #8 until it lights solid (skip this step if it is already lit)
-press the EXP A pedal #8 again briefly until it flashes
-press ENTER (UP)
-use the pedals to program in "1" and "4" for "14" in the display
-press ENTER (UP)
-use the pedals to program in the lowest controller value for cc 14 (e.g. a value between 0-127)
-press ENTER (UP)
-use the pedals to program in the highest controller value for cc 14 (e.g. a value between 0-127)
-press ENTER (UP)
-press the DOWN pedal for over 2 seconds to exit PRESET PROGRAMMING MODE

You have now programmed Expression Pedal A to send out MIDI Control number 14, with a range of 0-127 (e.g. "off" to full range/max level).

 

 

Programming a MIDI Note message using MIDI Note #14 as an example (typically used to trigger notes on a sampler, etc.):

 

Select the pedal/preset on the FCB1010 you wish to program... For example:

If you are working in DIRECT SELECT ENABLED mode = press pedal number "0" and then "1" to start programming preset #01

If you are working in DIRECT SELECT DISABLED mode = this same preset number (#01 in this example) would be accessed by pressing the UP pedal until "00" is in the display, then pressing pedal "1" (in DIRECT SELECT DISABLED MODE)

-power up FCB
-select a preset on the FCB1010 you wish to transmit your MIDI Note from
-press the DOWN pedal for over 2 seconds to enter PRESET PROGRAMMING MODE
-press ENTER (UP)
-press the MIDI NOTE pedal #10 until it lights solid (skip this step if it is already lit)
-press the MIDI NOTE pedal #10 again briefly until it flashes
-press ENTER (UP)
-use the pedals to program in "1" and "4" for "14" in the display
-press ENTER (UP)
-press the DOWN pedal for over 2 seconds to exit PRESET PROGRAMMING MODE

You have now programmed a MIDI Note value of 14 into the preset you had selected prior to entering PRESET PROGRAMMING MODE
