to work with Ableton Live the FCB1010 must send Midi notes and not CC messages. Is there an easy way to do this with the FCB1010 Manager ?
Thank you in advance for your answers.
Every FCB1010 preset has a "NOTE function", and in FCB1010 Manager you can define these in several ways:
Pressing an FCB1010 pedal thus defined makes the FCB1010 output a Note On message with velocity 100 for the defined note number, and releasing the pedal makes it output a Note On message with velocity 0 for the same note number.
However, if the FCB1010's ROM chip is version 2.5, there is a complication:
If the global Direct Select setting is off, a pedal with CNT 1 off and NOTE on doesn't just send the Note On messages as described above: pressing the pedal for the second time makes the FCB1010 also send a Control Change message, indicating the "tapped tempo", as described in section 2.6 of the official FCB1010 manual.
In other words, an FCB1010 with a ROM chip version 2.5 and Direct Select off cannot send Note On messages without also sending Control Change messages: either CNT 1's "regular" Control Change messages (if CNT 1 is on), or the "tap tempo" messages (if CNT 1 is off). So you'll have to make sure these Control Change messages are harmless to the receiving device (in your case Ableton Live).
Hope this helps,
Thanks for your response Mark, I'll try this and keep you posted.
