you mess up midi channels and CC numbers.
Ur FCB sends its data to all midi channels, so your pod will receive them no matter which channel you set it to.
One channel is enough to handle ALL data coming in !
(caution: if you want to use an editor to tweak ur POD, you need both midi connections, and set it to midi channel 1 or the Pod will not be recognized)
In order to control the POD, you only need its midi input connected, as the pod itself does not need to send out data to the FCB. The POD just receives data, not the FCB1010.
Now, as of the wah: the CC number 4 sets the position of the wah, your pedal will have a range from 0-127 by default.
But you also have to switch the wah ON first, done by CC number 43.
See in the chart if thats right or if its dif on your POD. Look for Wah on/off and Wah- position.(and check if I messed up the CCs out of memory)
you can switch the wah on/off whenever you like, should its state be on within the preset (on when selected) or off (switch wah on after preset selection)
Note that in the CC charts if there is just an on/off task, it says like: 0-64= off / 65-127= on, meaning for the state ON it does not matter if you set the number to 65,66,67.....126, or 127- in all cases the button will be ON.
i set 0 for off, 127 for on, which is just a matter of choice.
You can also consider to put in another chip into the FCB, like the UNO chip (there is another one too) giving you the opportunity to have stomp-box behavior. (Led on/off states)
also check MidiOx which is a nice midi monitor app to see what data is sent.
In either cases I strongly recommend a software editor for the FCB1010.
I purchased this one, but there is also a free one around (Ed Dixon) without support, but will do at least for the standard FCB (without chip).
hope that helps
