    FCB 1010 with EurekaPROM

    So my question: is it possible to programm the eureka prom in this way: - Button 1-8 for the 8 scenes - Up & Down Button to change the preset directly - 9 & 10 maybe for tuner or something else (don´t know now) The EurekaSound 3.2 will get you pretty close. From the Preset Configuration, you...

    Sustain pedal m-audio -> expression pedal

    Typically, a piano sustain pedal is a "momentary" controller, meaning it triggers a specific command when you hold it down, but that command ceases when you take your foot off. If you plug into the axe fx pedal inputs, you can specify pedal type in the controller menu on the axe fx, (momentary...

    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 1.00 Firmware Release

    Related to your second point, the biggest difference I heard after I installed Ares was that the sound was way more consistent as I increased volume on my mixer...almost like there was an automatic adjustment of the Fletcher Munson curve as the volume was cranked. Previously, things would get a...

    Bug? Ares 1.00 Porta-Bass Causes Axe FX II XL to Freeze

    Problem previously reported in Ares 1 beta thread by another user. Confirmed that when Porta-Bass amp is selected on Axe FX II XL, a high pitch is heard and unit freezes. A reboot clears the problem.

    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 1.00 Firmware Release

    Yes, I checked the Porta-Bass today and had a similar problem. Was met with a high pitch squeal and Axe-FX II XL locked up. Had to power on and back on.

    Axe-Fx II "Ares" Rev 1.00 Firmware Release

    Did you refresh Axe Edit after updating (Settings/Refresh After New FW)? On my Axe FXII XL, the Friedman 2018 spelling is fixed on the unit, and in all fields of Axe Edit.

    Axe-Fx II Firmware "Ares" 1.00 Public Beta

    I am not sure. There seems to be a spelling issue in Axe Edit list (Friedman HBE 201"square") . If you select it is says Friedman 2015.37. On the Axe Fx II XL itself, it says Friedman HBE 201. I didn't see it at first because it comes after the Fryette D60 M because it is not in all capital...

    Great success with using pitch shifter to tune down

    You can use the voice detune control to adjust pitch between full steps. You can leave voice shift at 0 and drop the voice detune to -25 cents for a quarter step (voice detune has a range of +/- half a step). Simple math is one note interval (one full step) equals 100 cents. For AC/DC's...

    FCB1010 help

    No, the problem I was referring to was that EurekaProm 3.1 was not completely compatible with Axe-XL due to the device ID issue. I notified them about that 2 years ago, and they fixed the problem in EurekaProm 3.2. I am not sure if EurekaSound knows that Axe III has been released, nor if they...

    FCB1010 help

    My issues were restricted to 2 way communication features on 3.1. The tuner wouldn't show on the FCB1010, and the effects state (lights on or off) were wonky in effects mode. There were also some situations where the FCB would freeze. Regardless, once I notified EurekaSound, they were very...

    FCB1010 help

    I suspect that you may also run into an issue with 2-way communication on Axe III in effects mode. EurekaProm version 3.1 was missing the correct device number id for the XL when it first came out, but it was fixed in version 3.2 after I reported the problem to EurekaSound. Each Axe Fx model...

    The FCB 1010 eurkaprom and the Axe FX 2XL+ wha tracking conundrum

    If you don't like the feel of the expression pedals on the FCB, you can add up to 2 additional ones directly to the Axe FX and use those for wah and perhaps volume, where the feel of the sweep might be more important.

    [Video Inside] FCB1010 Expression Pedal has serious delay sending MIDI - Eurekaprom

    " ...The lights start to blink when you are on like 1/3 or 1/4 of the range (heel down talking). So that's a gap or a dead spot there. Effect can't kick fast enough, apparently. That's why I'm asking eureka users if they have the same "lazy" problem with their pedals..." There very well might...

    [Video Inside] FCB1010 Expression Pedal has serious delay sending MIDI - Eurekaprom

    It is hard to say what the problem might be. Firstly, the numbers you get for the low and high values of the expression pedal before calibrating are within the normal range from what I have read, and similar to the ones I have. If they were above 10 at low and below 117 on the high end, then...

    Newbie - behringer controller on order with eurekaprom chip

    Ahh. I don't use EP mode and I think it is only available in the 1 midi cable configuration, which doesn't allow effects state to show up. Yes, you could have 5 favorite presets and 5 stomps in EP mode. You are stuck with the same 5 presets though, unless you have time to stop for several...

    Anyone tried the Eurekaprom 3.1?

    You could certainly map the top 5 switches to effects. I am not sure how you would set up switches 1-5 to individual scenes in EF mode, though. I don't see any cc# for individual scenes in the manual that . That is why I just use scene up and down. Perhaps the scene mode cc#34 has something...

    Anyone tried the Eurekaprom 3.1?

    In Effects mode, the switches are mapped to a specific midi CC function and that mapping is the same for all presets. If you select switch 1 to toggle the drive on/off, and switch 2 to toggle delay on/off that is all they will do across all presets. HOWEVER, if you want to change what the...

    Anyone tried the Eurekaprom 3.1?

    Kevin, I am assuming that the FCB has no mechanical problems, you have the EurekaProm 3.2 installed correctly, have selected the FA configuration on the FCB (see the EurekaSound website), and have the FCB connected to the axe fx with 2 midi cables. You may want to do an expression pedal...

    Anyone tried the Eurekaprom 3.1?

    Yes, the expression pedals work fine with the EurekaProm. I have set mine up as external controllers 1 and 2 so that I can change what they do in each preset.

    Anyone tried the Eurekaprom 3.1?

    Yes, in the EurekaProm Effects Configuration you can program the switches to do whatever you want. I use 8 switches for stomps and use 2 for scene increment/decrement. You can change the default setting using the PP programmable configuration and following the video instructions on the...

    Eurekaprom vs Uno

    I have been using the FCB with EurekaProm 3.2 for 9 months and feel that it works extremely well out of the box. Any modifications you want to make (e.g. changes which effects to turn off and on in Effects Mode and assigning patches in Favourite mode) are easy to do with just a few taps of the...

    Thanks for the templates, Guys. I added magnetic labels to my FCB this weekend and it looks great (and my old eyes can actually see what the switches do while standing!!).

    Anyone tried the Eurekaprom 3.1?

    I have found that using scenes and/or the effects mode allows you to get away with fewer overall presets. In that way, a single preset could be considered a bank on its own with 8 different configurations that can be selected instantly (scene mode) or 10 effects turned on or off at will...
  25. David Gauthier

    Anyone tried the Eurekaprom 3.1?

    I believe so. The 3.2 update mostly added features for the XL and XL + (fixed 2 way communication and added access to 768 presets). The features for the Axe fx standard and ultra was carried over from previous versions.

    "At any rate, I just adjusted the sensor again and on my second Cal test my numbers were: 2 , 3 (again) toe down - 99 , 107. It appears that pedal 2 on the FCB with the value at 107 is getting me full sweep on upper range; However, Pedal 1 with the value at 99 is just short from reaching the...

    Anyone tried the Eurekaprom 3.1?

    Do you have the FCB connected with 2 cables (midi out FCB to midi in on axe fx; midi out of axe fx to midi in on fcb)? Have you selected the FA profile for the EurekaProm Chip using the instructions on the website? To select scenes, press switch 9 from the Preset mode, then you can access all...

    Anyone tried the Eurekaprom 3.1?

    There is a program mode that lets you freely assign the 10 switches and foot pedals to any cc# you want. You can also make any switch momentary or latching. There is a demo on the EurekaSound website showing how to do this.
  31. David Gauthier

    Can the Behringer fcb1010 buttons be used as momentary switches for External Controllers?

    The EurekaProm 3.2 allows you to program all of the 10 switches for either momentary or latching and assign to any cc#. If you assign them to the modifier cc numbers then they can be used for different functions per preset.

    How to use expression pedal to pan between two pitch blocks?

    Right. In option one I was thinking of assigning modifiers to the mix parameter of each pitch block, so that would probably be similar to using the mixer without adding another block--not sure which would be smoother, but I'll give both a shot later.
  33. David Gauthier

    Can the looper be triggered by a simple footswitch?

    To access all the looper functions, you would need 7 instant access switches assigned to different functions (see page 183 of the manual for the cc assignments for each). You could probably get away with fewer if you could live with say, record, play and bypass. The Behringer FCB1010 with...

    How to use expression pedal to pan between two pitch blocks?

    One way: In the modifier screen, set the min position for pitch 1 at 0% and the max position at 100%, for pitch 2, set the min position at 100% and the max position at 0%. Another way: Put Pitch 1 and Pitch 2 on separate rows and use a pan pedal to pan between to the two signal chains.

    Big wave of buyer's remorse.....help calm me down.

    I was on the wait list for an AX8, but decided to grab one the the NOS XLs back in February. Like you, I tried to convince myself that the AX8 would be all I needed.that I couldn't really afford an XL+ and that I wouldn't need all the extra features. However, I realized that even if I had an...

    Using Pitch Block

    If the only intervals are -4 and -5, setting up a custom scale might be the easiest option and would alleviate the need to do any switching or pedalling during the solo. Just play each note in the solo and input the corresponding interval (-4 or -5) for that note in the custom scale setting.

    Formant block question.

    Perhaps the vocoder block would be easier to improve upon for talkbox effects. If Boss can do it, then I am sure FAS can, too. The talkbox effect starts at around 10:20 in this video demo:

    Q2.04 and Headphones Issue [Resolved - User Error]

    Anyone tried the Eurekaprom 3.1?

    Due to the limitations of the FCB display, you only get a letter with a plus or minus that disappears when the note is in tune. The sensitivity is not quite as accurate as monitoring from the AXE-FX display, but not too bad. When the black dot no longer touches the right of left side of the...

    Anyone tried the Eurekaprom 3.1?

    Update: I received a beta 3.2 chip today, and 2 way communication seems to work fine with my XL. If you have an XL or XL+, you will want to wait for the 3.2 chip to be released before ordering. If you have the standard AXE-FX 2, version 3.1 will work fine. With this issue fixed, I think that...

    Wish Rotary Block Drive needs some balls and grit.

    Actually, the Lester G demo helped me a lot in getting a better rotary sound on my Digitech 2120 and now my Axe-FX XL. The importance of compression in the overall sound was something I wouldn't have thought of. I added compression to my patches and the dirt and grit started to sound more...

    Setting up Vol Incr/Decr

    From my reading of what is in the manual, if you use an external momentary switch, you get it to act like a momentary switch by selecting "continuous" on the AX8. Using the "momentary" setting on the AX8 with an external momentary switch makes it act like a latching switch. The language is...
