I've connected the FCB1010 to the computer via the USB Uno cable and enabled it as an input and output in the midi device dialog box. (Thru output device set to none) Now I want to check the connection to make sure there is a successful communication between the FCB and FCB Manager.
I have both Midi input & output meters windows (FCB Manager) open side by side. I move the Expression pedal on the real FCB and I see signal activity on the Midi input meters window on (channel 1) . I guess that means Midi Out (FCB1010) to Midi In (FCB Manager) is ok.
Is there a way to test the signal on the output meters window? I thought maybe "midi feedback" loop could possibly be used for testing the signal flow out from FCB Manager to the FCB1010. If I assign the 'Thru output device' in the midi devices dialog box to "the USB Uno" , now both input and output meters window register signal activity. Does this count for testing in this case at all? or I would have to send a SysEx file from FCB manager to the FCB1010 to see if the connection works this way as well?
