Can FBV3 Control External Midi Devices?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have an FBV3 on order. Am I able to use the FBV3 to control external midi devices (e.g. Atomic Amplifire) by using the USB port on the FBV3?

 

i.e. If I am connected to my Spider V240 (by RJ45 connection) can I also control the Atomic Amplifire (or other device) via the USB (type B) port?

 

Any assistance is much appreciated.

 

Cheers

Paul

I got the FBV3 early in January. I am still curious as to whether the FBV3 can be used with other midi devices, without a PC involved. i.e. could I use it (with some type of interface) to control an Atomic Amplifire? Does such a device exist? (Atomic Amplifire Midi din in/out > Interface: Midi din in/out + Power in + RJ45 Out > FBV3)

 

Cheers!

I am assuming that the FBV3 is like the mkII's.. The Shortboard mkII can be set to control external gear, however it is via USB only .. so if you are not using a computer then the only cheap option i have found is a kenton USB midi host.. iconnectmidi4 is a 4 port midi router with a USB host port that i have also used, but ovrkill unless synths and stuff are involved.

 

i am using the FBV shortboard mkII USB >kenton midi host > DIN mid > Avid Eleven Rack and its flawless.
