    Can someone explain why the fc12/6 compatibility mode is needed? And/or what it achieves? Edit: I guess it is so people with both style units can have layouts where the buttons stay in the same location on both devices?... And they can leave axeedit in fc12 mode?

    WISH: One-Tap Tuner Bypass if set as "Hold" function.

    you “could” achieve this, by moving to another “similar” layout with that button swapped. Layout 1. Button 1 tap = tempo Button 1 hold = tuner and layout link to layout 2. Layout 2. Button 1 tap = tuner and layout link to layout 1.

    Momentary CS sometimes acts like Latching

    I think I've solved this issue. If the state of the CS is changed by a scene whilst the button is held down on the FC, all is good and the resulting state is "how you pressed it". If however, the scene controller page sets the state of the button to ON when you have already removed your foot...

    Bug? unable to configure DISABLE on CS MIDI value fields

    The fields for midi payload for CS MIDI ON or CS MIDI OFF don't appear to allow the user to configure these to "disabled" AKA "--". The front panel of the AXEFX 3 does allow this. The manual says you can have each "disabled".

    FC-6 and Scene change with Bluetooth [solved]

    Which before you ask (checksum), is the same every time (for scenes). Calculations have been posted a number of times in (IIRC) the third party midi thread. But as said, if you have a CC working for this, it’s not needed and in no way would correct the OPs “race condition”.

    FC-6 and Scene change with Bluetooth [solved]

    Midi PC max 127- why?

    well, yeah, but each byte can only be up to 7 bits.
  59. simonp54

    Midi PC max 127- why?

    @Capt Nasty - it doesn't side step the limitations of 7 bit data. but yes, formats which take into account larger data ranges are able to be handled differently.
  60. simonp54

    Midi PC max 127- why?

    MIDI is a standards based 7 bit data protocol. That yields options for data elements up to 127 (128 options) in any single field. This is why MIDI banks exist. Effectively Preset 129 is Bank 2 PC 1. This is further "complicated" for new users because the numbering starts at 0 as the first...

    Third-Party MIDI Spec

    The FC doesn’t use the third party midi interface. Likely even if the effectid was correct, that it wouldn’t work. What I mean is there are other definitions in that listing that also aren't available for use... e.g. ID_MIDIBLOCK, ID_FOOTCONTROLLER and ID_PRESET_FC... none of these have any...
  75. simonp54
