Yes. For a while I controlled both en EDP, a Repeater and a  
filterbank from one FCB1010. All you have to do is to set the devices  
to dedicated MIDI channels.

Live does not only accept MIDI note numbers. CC data or PC can also  
be used. Usuallly CC is used for stuff like sweeping Lives filter or  
other effect parameters from a MIDI expression pedal but even "on/ 
off" type of button function in Live can be controlled by CC. Then  
you have to make sure that one alternative ("on") goes with a low  
value and the other with a high value ("off").
