RE: Troubleshooting my EDPs and FCB....Again (factory reset guidance)

Well, I think I have it working now. Not sure exactly what did it, but I
reset the FCB again, powered everything off and on, and everything
seemed to work fine. The only think I can see that I did differently was
power everything off and back on again after resetting the FCB.  I'm not
using the MIDI splitter either, and it still works fine.

Now I can start tapping into those hidden features.  The first thing I
setup was the half-speed function.  Anything else cool I can do now that
I'm controlling the EDPs with MIDI? This is a whole new world for me
now. I like the feel of those FCB buttons too....not nearly as touchy
and fragile as the Gibson controller pedals.

Just a troubleshooting suggestion - to take the FCB out of the equation.
If you have a MIDI keyboard, try sending appropriate notes from it and
see if both machines will respond properly.
(Try it first without the MIDI splitter - just the keyboard into the
"in" of the master and the "out" of the master into the "in" of the
slave [and with the brothersync].)
