| I use my FCB1010 to control Guitar Rig
Program changes are used to change presets in Guitar rig.
Pressing on pedal #1 in this example will change to preset #1 in the current Guitar Rig preset bank.
The expression pedals are both turned on.
Pedal A is set up as controller #27.
Pedal B is set up as controller #7.
The controller numbers don't matter as long as something else is not using that same controller number.
I use two FCB1010's in series and so I had to set each expression pedal to a different number.
One FCB1010 is set to #27 and #7 like in the screen shot above
The other FCB1010 is set to #28 and #8
Now all four expression pedals have their own controller numbers
The minimum and maximum values are the Midi number range that the pedal sends.
You can change this number to reduce the pedal range.
In the screen shot above you can see that I have pedal B (#7) set to 25 minimum and 100 maximum
I use this pedal for Wah Wah in Guitar rig and this sets the Wah pedal sweep range to a range that I like
Note that I have the 5 Stomp boxes set to NC.
This means, do not change the stomp box switches when I switch to this preset.
If you wanted Stomp Box 2 to come on when you changed to Preset #1, you would change Stomp box #2 button at the bottom to ON.
There are three switch settings available.
NC=No Change, ON=turn stomp box on, OFF=turn stomp box off.

Here's what Midi messages are sent when Preset Pedal #1 is pressed.
I do not remember where I got the Midi Monitor program shown above
I believe that Midi-Ox can do the same thing

Here's what Midi messages are sent when Expression pedal A is pressed.
| Here is the setup for stomp box Pedal #1 which is switch #6 on the FCB1010
Check the Program Change #4 box and enter the value of 113
Program Change #4 - value 113 is used to store the Stomp box info in the UNO chip.
Don't mess with this setting if you have the UNO chip.
So what is happening is that I am sending Midi note #120 when I step on pedal #6 (Stomp Box pedal #1).
Midi note #120 can now be assigned to do whatever you need it to do in Guitar Rig.
In my case, I am turning the Octiver effect on in Guitar Rig.
Sending Midi notes to Guitar Rig to switch things on and off seemed to work better than sending Control change numbers.
Note that the Control Changes boxes 1 and 2 are unchecked.
The Alt box on the right is checked but grayed is out.
This allows you to toggle the Pedal #6 LED on and off.
One press of the pedal and the LED comes on, press again and the LED goes off.
If you do not check the Alt value, the pedal LED will come on as long as you hold down the pedal and go off as soon as you take your foot off the pedal.
The only way to check the Alt box is to check the box at the left end first, then check the Alt box, then uncheck the left side box.
Note that the Expression pedal buttons are set to NC.
This means, do not change the state of my expression pedals when I press on Pedal #6 - Stomp box pedal #1.
My expression pedals are still active and doing the same thing they were set up to do when I entered preset #1 by pressing Preset pedal #1.
Here's what Midi messages are sent when Pedal #6 (Stomp Box pedal #1) is pressed.
|This shot shows you the Global settings tab in the Midi editor.
I have Stomp Box mode checked.
I have SysEx receive checked also.
This lets you send a .syx file to the FCB1010 without doing anything to the pedal.
The .syx file is the programming information file that resides inside the FCB1010.
You can only do this with the UNO PROM chip.
The FCB1010 just has to be on and hooked up to your Midi controller to be able to send a .syx file.
I have Block repeated program changes checked.
This means that if you step on pedal #1, the FCB1010 will send a Midi signal, if you step on it again, the FCB1010 will not send the exact same signal again.
The other setups are personal.
If you need Midi merge, check it.
If you use tap tempo, check it.
I don't use the FCB relay switches or Tap tempo and so I have them unchecked.
You can experiment with Advanced options to see which works best
I find that transmitting one byte at a time worked better for me
There's no need to check the firmware each time the program starts
