    Dear all, 

    My setup:

    - Brand new FCB1010 MIDI controller, firmware 2.50.1 E

    - Roland UM-ONE Mk2 MIDI-to-USB interface

    - Windows 10 PC

    - 3rd party software: MIDI-OX, FCB1010 Manager

    I started to manually program MIDI messages (notes) sent by the footswitches in order to control Ableton. The programming went well for footswitches 1 to 4 (test with MIDI-OX: OK, MIDI mapping in Ableton: OK). But when I programmed the footswitch 5, I noticed that the note programmed on footswitch 5 also got programmed on the footswitch 1 (it replaced the MIDI message that I initially set on footswitch 1). The same thing happened for the footwsitch 6 - its note also got programmed on the footswitch 2, etc. Then I factory reset my FCB1010 and read back all the presets with FCB Manager software. A strange pattern emerged (see attachment): the footswitches on my FCB1010 seem to be "routed" in pairs with offset 4 (5 is routed on 1, 6 is routed on 2, ...). I tried everything and it seems impossible to me to program these footswitches with different MIDI messages...   

    I would not blame the MIDI-to-USB interface for this: I get the same issue when I do the manual programming ("tapdance"), when the FCB1010 is not even connected to the PC. Even then I can tell what the result will be: manual note programming, footswitch 10 LED blinking, before I enter the new value the FCB1010 shows the old one (for ex. I program footswitch 1 with note 60 - OK, then I program footswitch 5 with note 64 - OK, then I want to program footswitch 1 again and the display "suggests the previous note" 64, which I never programmed on footswitch 1!).

    I also get the issue when I program MIDI messages via SysEx using FCB1010 Manager. 

    This happens with MIDI messages of different types: PC, CC, notes...

    Am I doing something wrong? Or is my FCB1010 broken?

    Thank you in advance for your help

    I just got a Behringer UMX 610 MIDI controller, I've correctly connected it to my PC according to the manual...but as I power it on, the lights come on automatically, and won't turn off and the buttons and keys don't function, even though it has been recognized by the PC

      WilliamR Please be sure you are using the drivers on the product page. Once installed, plug directly into the USB port and preferably not a USB hub. Then whatever daw you are using, set the umx as your midi device.

      switcher Hi, I had the same issue out of the box. Solved it by downloading ControlTribe and updating SWING's firmware (it will show you an update button if it's not updated). Hope it works for you.

    Hi I am looking for a detailed user manual for the crouch. I can find the QSG and the MIDI documentation, but nothing more detailed on the use of the controller. Am I missing something?

    Thanks for any help.

    I've started a playlist of videos that can help you set up a MOTÖR 49 or 61 with Pro Tools on Mac OS X:

    I make it a point to explain the concepts, so that those with Windows machines can figure out the correct OS utilities or applications to use to get the same results.

    By the end of the series you can have not just faders, pan pots/encoders, and pads working as useful buttons, but also plugin support on inserts A-J, send A-J levels, and cool triggers like dropping markers on the timeline during recording or playback. I'm still cranking out videos but this is all working on my system here using ProTools 12, 2018, 2019, and 2020.

       I've watched all of your YouTube tutorials and have found them very helpful.

      After setting up my faders, rotaries, pads and transport controls on my Motor49 to take command of ProTools, I go to the Edit menu and successfully save the preset created for this purpose (Preset 1, which I also call ProTools). But every time I power down the Motor49 and then restart at a later time, all my MIDI re-programming is lost. 

      What's going on? Am I missing a save step somewhere?

    I have a DigiTech Whammy DT that I'm using with my VL3x.

    I need to set my set mt VL3x preset #2, to send a MIDI Program Change (PC47) to the Whammy DT.

    I've been unsuccessful in finding where I can set my MIDI Send parameters for CC and PC values.

    Thanks for your help,

      PedroRodrigues Hi BRymes Please consider that there can be up to 500 presets loaded into a VoiceLive 3, and it’s possible to navigate between these presets with an external controller sending MIDI Control Change (“CC”) and Program Change (“PC”) messages. The VoiceLive 3 can receive CC and PC messages via MIDI from sources like keyboards, footswitches, DAWs, and more. For the controlling device to send a MIDI message to VL3 it needs to be using the same MIDI channel as the VL3, typically this is channel 1 but you’re welcome to change it. Also make sure you aren’t misusing the MIDI input filters, and ensure that the MIDI input is set to be either “USB” (for the USB-mini input) or “MIDI Ports” (for the 5-pin MIDI input) depending on how you're connecting. These settings can be changed in VL3’s “Setup” menu, on the “MIDI” tab.
      To change Presets via MIDI, first tell the VL3 which Bank to look in, then tell it which Preset in that Bank you want to change to.
      Bank select: To specify the desired bank, issue an LSB Bank select message (CC#32) with a value of 0-3.
      Preset Select: After specifying the Bank, issue a PC Preset select message with a value of 0-127.
      MSB LSB VL3Bank Program Change (PC) VL3 Preset #
      0 0 0 0-127 1-128
      0 1 1 0-127 129-256
      0 2 2 0-127 257-384
      0 3 3 0-115 385-500

      The internal number associated with a Preset isn’t exactly what you see on the VL3’s screen, they’re actually all off by 1. This is because internally the list of Presets actually starts at an index of 0. This means that 0 = Preset #1, 1 = Preset #2, 2 = Preset #3, etc. It’s like your presets are saved from 0-499 but are displayed as 1-500.
      There are 4 Banks in VL3, and each Bank contains 128 Presets. Therefore the Preset selection number that goes to VL3 needs to be between 1 and 128. So for a Preset above 128, you need to subtract the number of the first Preset in the same Bank to get the MIDI Program Change info.
      The 9-digit message for changing to a preset is in the format of:
      MSB LSB PC#
      Or, you can first send a CC#32 of the Bank you’re looking in, then a PC value of the Preset you want.
      Here are some examples:
      Preset #5 would be: 5 - 1 = 4
      000 000 004
      or CC#32 value 0, then PC 4
      Preset #100 would be: 100 - 1 = 99
      000 000 099
      or CC#32 value 0, then PC 99
      Preset #208 would be: 208 - 129 = 79 (because Preset #208 is in Bank 1, which starts at Preset #129)
      000 001 079
      or CC#32 value 1, then PC 79
      Preset 259 would be: 259 - 257 = 2
      000 002 002
      or CC#32 value 2, then PC 2
      Preset 322 would be: 322 - 257 = 65
      000 002 065
      or CC#32 value 2, then PC 65
      Preset 491 would be: 491 - 385 = 106
      000 003 106
      or CC#32 value 3, then PC 106
      Preset 500 would be: 500 - 385 = 115
      000 003 115
      or CC#32 value 3, then PC 115

      When you try to address a Preset that does not exist (either an empty spot or one outside the 1-500 range), there is no built-in warning system, VL3 just won’t do anything. So if you can see the “MIDI” indication on the VL3 appearing when you send commands, but are not getting the Preset to change, ensure you’re not referencing an empty or non-existent Preset location.
      If that all seems too complicated for you, consider using Steps instead of Presets. Steps are essentially Presets within a Preset, and you can have up to 10 Steps all in the same Preset. If your current Preset contains the Steps you’ll be using, it just takes a single CC message to choose your Step…
      CC 115 = Step
      Value represents Step Number, i.e. 1 = Step 1, 2 = Step 2, etc.
      So sending a CC#115 with a value of 2 will take you to the second Step in your current Preset.

    Behringer used to sell these chips for the FCB1010 through their own official Amazon store for like $9. I still have a screenshot of that! Now all of a sudden it's sold for $79 through other sellers?


    Here's the Amazon link:


    Click on "Available from these sellers" and see it for yourself.

    If that is the case, how is it possible to control more than one MIDI device?

    If you put more than one MIDI device on the same MIDI channel, and they share controller parameters (which they will), then you cannot control them independently. 

    Can someone please clarify. Surely this cannot be the case.
