Controling Pod Farm2 using FCB1010
on 2010-09-08 16:31:29
it's been almost 3 years since i bought my Toneport UX2 with all packs. In almos 20 years i am still considering it as the best money i've spent in this hobby!
While after UX2 i read some stuff and decided to buy an MIDI Controller to act as a pedalboard, i've decided to buy a Behrignher FCB1010 and upgrade with the UNO eprom to unlock stomppedal mode among other stuff.
The only two problems i had with this setup were:
1. My inability to get a good all round preset (clean, dirty and extreme gain "setups") based on an set of pedals with an amp
2. I wasn't able to change preset on Gearbox using FCB1010 (documented "limitation" for my purposes).
Well it ended with a limited usage of FCB but i could survive.
Even when Pod Farm come out, i was still stucked with Gearbox, but when line6 released Pod Farm2 i decided to give it a try, and i really enjoyed the much more user friendly interface among other things that i only discovered later.
About two weeks a go i decided to se wich were the supported MIDI capabilities and guess what... preset change was one of them (Setlist usage) !!! Bingo!!!!
NOW THE PROBLEM FOR WHICH I AM HERE REQUESTING FOR HELP:
The MIDI learning feature is also great, however i am having trouble to configure the expression pedals (volume and wha control).
I want a very basic configuration, for the people who knows FCB1010 interface:
A). Pedal 6 to 10 would be (ON/Off beahivour): STomp; Mods; Delays; Reverbs, Wha
I am able to make this works, however it always point to a specific pedal model (i am using midi learn feature, no special MIDI command set on the FCB), the one that i am using when i configure it using MIDI Learn.
How could i enable/disable the effect that is by default in the "preset" i am in? For example, if the preset uses classic distrotion it would enable it, but if it uses a screamer he would have the same behaviour. Is this possible?
B) Expression Pedal 1: Volume (always on)
C) Expression Pedal 2: Wha (depending on pedal 10 being off or not)
I wasn't able to put make this working, even if the wah is enabled i move the pedal and nothing happens.
D) Pedal 1 to 5: changing Set
This one here is working perfectly!!!!
Is there any one that could provide me some tips regarding this? Anyone have a working sysex that could share with me?
Thanks in advance
