    Hello 

    I have bought the Swing Midi controller and I noticed that trying to record a sequence the TAP (to enter a rest/tie/legato) as described in the guide, seems not working.

    So I decided to upgrade to firmware v1.1.38 but same thing.

    Also the app Control Tribe is stuck on this screenshot and I can not access to all the inner parameters of the Swing.

    Is anybody there to help me out?

    Thanks

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi BAROENTERTAINMENT001, please note the UMX490 is now considered a Legacy product, with this in mind we cannot fully confirm its compatibility with newer operating systems, however, I have included some troubleshooting steps for you below:

      Replace your USB Cable.
      Try an alternative USB Port.
      Where possible use USB 2.0.
      If you are connecting via a USB Hub please connect directly to your computer.
      Ensure you have the correct drivers installed.
      Upgrade your USB Drivers and BIOS.
      Ensure no USB Power saving settings are enabled.
      If the UMX does not seem to be powering on when using USB power please try one of the alternative power methods.
      Lastly, please try a computer running an older OS.

    Hi,

    Do you have a repair address or number to get an RMA for a repair? I dont mind paying per repair, I just want my units working again. I have 2 UMC404 units that have the blinky lights bug.. I just put them aisde and buy another.. I have not been able to locate a service location here in the states... that I trust... Its the only reason, I have only purchased "self-service-able" classic constructions that I can repair till I find a true address to send repairs to. I dont even care if it takes 6 months.. Im that type of customer. I love you products by the way. Been trying to say hi to Uli and tell him what a great job hes doing. I use his products in my studio and on our albums. Good stuff. I just repaired a 1202FX from the trash bin.. Now its ready to get back to work!

    I own a V-tone GMX 1200H and I am having trouble getting the amp head and FCB1010 on the same channel. I just want them both on on channel 1

    I follow all the steps in the amp and midi controller manual and the Channel number of 1 on amp still keeps flashing and number dose not go solid. It says in the manual it will stop flashing when the amp and foot switch are on the same channel and I have also went through all the steps to set the foot controller to channel 1 and the 1 on the amp does not go solid I just want to use the foot switch to call up effect patches, channel switch and effect on off control and expression pedals I basically want to use it as an effect controller for the

    V TONE on the amp head but I can’t start programming until I get both the amp head and the foot switch on the same channel and the channel number on the amp head goes solid.. plz help I’m finding it hard getting info about GMX V Tone and FCB1010 setup the user manuals are very vague. And any advice how to program the FCB1010 to be pretty much used as a pedal board to switch between FX in the head and channel switch and effect on and off and expression pedals would be great. It mentioned in the GMX V Tone manual the the FCB1010 is a great MIDI controller and channel switch and effect on and off for the FX built into the GMX 1200H V Tone.

    • SimonSimmoEliot
      PedroRodrigues Hi SimonSimmoEliot please tak ein to account that the FCB1010 has 10 number buttons, two expressions pedals and some other controls and options. A common use is to press a numbered button the FCB1010 and have your guitar modeler change to another sound preset (sometimes referred to as a patch). Button 1 might be a clean guitar sound and button 2 overdrive/distortion. Common examples of guitar modelers used with the FCB1010 are Line 6 POD gear and Behringer V-Amp units. If your gear is MIDI capable, the FCB1010 can probably control it.
      When you press a button the FCB1010, it sends one or more MIDI commands to your connected MIDI gear. The most common and useful command is a Program Change command, generally referred to as a PC command. PC commands are used in MIDI gear to change the current preset/patch. When the FCB1010 sends a PC command, your MIDI gear will receive it and change to the preset selected by the command. The process is very fast, so you will not lose any measurable time in the change.
      To make the FCB1010 work with your gear, you will need to do a few things.
      • Connect a MIDI cable from FCB1010 output to the MIDI input on your gear
      • Set your MIDI gear to a specific MIDI channel (there are 16)
      • Set the FCB1010 for the same MIDI channel (if they are not on the same channel, they will NOT work together)
      • Program each of the buttons on the FCB1010 to select the desired option on your MIDI gear
      • See if it works. If not, first check the above. If that does not help, read further
      You can program your FCB1010 in one of two ways. The most basic is to use the FCB1010 buttons to program it's MIDI features. This is sometimes referred to as the "Riverdance", as it takes a number of button presses to program a single function.
      The other programming option is to use a software editor. There are editors for both Windows based PCs, as well as Mac based versions. To use a software editor, you will generally need the following:
      • Computer (Mac or PC)
      • Two MIDI cables
      • Computer MIDI Interface
      It will also take some patience, as some trial and error is to be expected before you get your gear working like you want. The software editor is the quickest way to get all going and allows a simple approach for backup and restore should other things fail.
      First Steps
      The brain inside your FCB1010 is a small firmware chip. Many versions of firmware chips have been made by Behringer. Chip version much earlier than the 2.3 series have enough bugs and problems that you should consider getting a firmware upgrade. See here to find out what version you have, whether you might need to upgrade. and how this is done.
      Assuming your firmware is OK, you will need to calibrate your two expression pedals. Many FCB1010 units ship with expression pedals that do not work correctly. The calibration process will fix this, and only takes a few minutes. See here for a step-by-step outline of this process.
      The steps below outline the process for programming a preset for the FCB1010 to control a preset/patch on a single piece of MIDI gear. The process for dealing with more MIDI gear is similar and will be covered later.
      Set the MIDI Channels
      The MIDI channel on your FCB1010 must match the MIDI channel used on your other MIDI gear. If they are not the same, MIDI commands sent buy the FCB1010 will just be ignored by your MIDI gear. Try MIDI channel 1 on both for a start.
      To set the MIDI channel on your FCB1010, do the following:
      1. If FCB1010 is turned on, turn it off
      2. Press and hold the Down button while you turn on the FCB1010. Keep holding it down for about 5 seconds. When you see the small green light come on, release the button
      3. Press the UP button once. The green light will have changed to the MIDI Function selection.
      4. Press the 1 button. The 1 button LED and green light will begin to blink. The display will change to show you the current MIDI channel for PC command.
      5. Press the UP button once. The green light will move to MIDI Chann and the display digit will begin to blink.
      6. Press the 0 button and then the 1 button. This will change it to MIDI channel 1. The display should now show 01.
      7. Press the UP button once. The green light will move to the MIDI Config selection.
      8. Now press and hold the Down button for about 5 seconds. The display will change to 00.
      You have now programmed the FCB for the first PC command to MIDI channel 1. To set a different channel, the steps are basically the same except you enter a different number in the sixth step above.
      Program a Preset
      Now lets program the 1 button to select preset 23 on your MIDI gear.
      1. Press the 1 button.
      2. Press and hold the Down button on the FCB1010 for about 5 seconds. This puts the FCB1010 in programming mode for preset 1.
      3. Press the UP button once.
      4. Usually one or more buttons will now have their LEDs on. The green light will be at select.
      5. If the 1 LED is not on, press and hold the 1 button until the LED comes on.
      6. Press the 1 button again, and it should begin to blink.
      7. Press the UP button once. The display should begin to brink showing the current PC command.
      8. Press the 2 button. Press the 3 button.
      9. Press the UP button once.
      10. Now press and hold the Down button for about 5 seconds.
      You have now programmed the 1 button to send a PC command of 23 on MIDI channel 1 to your MIDI gear.
      You can program the other buttons in a similar fashion. Select the desired button in step 1 above. You can change to a different preset for your MIDI gear in step 8.
      Set Expression Pedal A for Volume
      Volume control is the most common use for Expression pedals. MIDI volume is handled via MIDI Change Controller (CC) commands. When you press the expression pedal, a CC command is sent based on how far down the pedal is pressed. Each CC MIDI command includes two parts. The first is the CC that is being changed and the second the value it is being changed to.
      MIDI volume is standardized as CC#7. This is what most MIDI gear supports, but check your documentation to be sure.
      1. Press the 1 button.
      2. Press and hold the Down button on the FCB1010 for about 5 seconds. This puts the FCB1010 in programming mode for preset 1.
      3. Press the UP button once.
      4. Usually one or more buttons will now have their LEDs on. The green light will be at select.
      5. If the 8 LED is not on, press and hold the 8 button until the LED comes on.
      6. Press the 8 button again, and it should begin to blink.
      7. Press the UP button once. The display should begin to brink showing the current CC command for expression pedal A.
      8. Press the 0 button. Press the 7 button.
      9. Press the UP button once.
      10. Press the 0 button twice (which sets the minimum volume to zero)
      11. Press the UP button once.
      12. Press the 1 button. press the 2 button. Press the 7 button. This sets the max volume to 127, which is generally what you want.
      13. Press the UP button once.
      14. Now press and hold the Down button for about 5 seconds.
      You will also need to set the MIDI channel for Expression A to the same channel you selected above.
      1. If FCB1010 is turned on, turn it off
      2. Press and hold the Down button while you turn on the FCB1010. Keep holding it down for about 5 seconds. When you see the small green light come on, release the button
      3. Press the UP button once. The green light will have changed to the MIDI Function selection.
      4. Press the 8 button. The 8 button LED and green light will begin to blink. The display will change to show you the current MIDI channel for expression pedal A
      5. Press the UP button once. The green light will move to MIDI Chann and the display digit will begin to blink.
      6. Press the 0 button and then the 1 button. This will change it to MIDI channel 1. The display should now show 01.
      7. Press the UP button once. The green light will move to the MIDI Config selection.
      8. Now press and hold the Down button for about 5 seconds. The display will change to 00.
      You have now programmed the FCB1010 to use Expression Pedal A for volume control. The process for expression pedal B is similar expect you will be using the 9 button in steps 5 and 8 and step 4.
      Common Problems
      Do did all the above and it still does not work. The most common problems are:
      • MIDI cables not connected correctly. See above for details
      • MIDI channels do not match. They must be the same.

      More Advanced Steps
      The FCB1010 is a fairly capable device. It has 10 banks of 10 presets each, for a total of 100 presets. Each preset can send up to five separate PC commands on five separate MIDI channels. This means you could control 5 separate MIDI devices with each preset.
      It also includes switch functions that allow your FCB1010 presets to also control non MIDI gear (like the channels on your guitar amp) that can be controlled by 1/4" sorting jacks. This would allow you to have one FCB1010 preset set your amp for the clean channel and another preset the distorting/overdrive channel.
      The FCB1010 can also send up to two CC commands for each preset (these are separate from the expression pedal commands). This can be very useful to turn specific effects on/off within your MIDI gear. For example, Behringer V-Amp users might want button 6 to turn the distortion on/off for each preset.

    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

    Piotr

    Hello everybody.
    I am a singer guitarist and I use the X32 rack for bands or solo, in parallel a kemper rack for my guitars.
    Despite many attempts, the midi clocks of the two racks do not synchronize.
    I would like to be able to hit the tempo on the Kemper (master) and find the same on the X32 rack (slave).
    The connection is made with two midi cables.
    Do you have a solution?
    Maybe a midi-usb adapter like the
    Roland - UM-ONE mk2 | USB MIDI Interface.
    
    "Midi Kemper exit -
    Usb input X32 rack "?
    Clock source setting to Exp. Card.
    
    Thank you in advance for your answers.

    I am attempting to use the XR18 as an audio and MIDI interface with an Behringer FCB1010 foot controller; to control a plug in (in this case the Cory Wong Archetype) however this seems to be almost impossible as the product manuals lack information and there are no resources on the web to answer any questions.

    I am very new to MIDI  and I'm struggling to get this set up.

    The setup is:

    1. XR18 via acces point connected to XR Edit on Mac Book

    2. Guitar into XR 18 Channel 1

    3. USB from XR18 to Mac Book Pro (2019)

     -- --This works fine and connects to the Cory Wong Archetype plug in with the USB Returns of the XR18 set to AUX L/R sending the signal back into the AUX output

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The FCB1010 is then connected to the XR18 - FCB 1010 MIDI OUT to XR18 MIDI IN - and XR18 MIDI OUT to FCB1010 MIDI IN

    The problem is that the XR18 does not recognise the FCB1010.  I have set the XR18 Audio/MIDI Setup to USB-DIN Pass Thru

    Firstly, is it possible to use the XR18 as a MIDI interface in this way? Or is an audio interface required?

    If it is, I'm aware that MIDI has to be on the same Channel, so I have set channel 01 on the FCB1010 but there is no guidance on how to set a MIDI channel on the XR18, so it is possible they may not be 'talking' to each other.

    Assuming this CAN be done - how do I then get the setup to control/change the Cory Wong Archetypeplug in? I am only looking for a stom-box type changer initially.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Any answers on this would be greatly appreciated.

      Paul_Vannatto Connecting "XR18 - FCB 1010 MIDI OUT to XR18 MIDI IN - and XR18 MIDI OUT to FCB1010 MIDI IN" with the XR18 USB/DIN Pass-Thru enabled means that what is tranmitted from the footpedal is returned to the footpedal. You need to connect the footpedal directly to the computer.

      • Behringer XR18 connectivity
        Elterwater2 Thanks for the reply Paul. I have a cable on the way to make that connection. I was curious to know though, if the XR18 itself could be used in the same way as an audio interface with DIN connections? If anyone knows?
        • January 14, 2021
      • Behringer XR18 connectivity
        Paul_Vannatto I think what you are trying to do is convert the MIDI in to the USB out, which does not work. The main purpose of the midi in the XR18 is to use midi devices control the XR18. The pass thru setting was added to allow the midi in to pass thru to the midi out . When that is enabled, midi control of the XR18 is disabled.
