RE: FCB1010 EDP MIDI thru problem?


Not possible for a midi echo as you describe.. again, this problem is
happening with only one midi device connected between the FCB1010 and the

Of course, I can resolve the problem by just making the EDP the first 
in the midi chain, but that would still leave me with the haunting question
of "why is this happening"!!!

I think Claude's suggestion of using a midi monitor is an excellent idea,
I'll try and locate one for my PC. Would be a useful tool to have anyway.

The midi devices in my (live guitar rig) rack are;

Mesa Triaxis
TC Fireworx
TC G-force
Two EDP's
Eventide Eclipse

Make sure there's no MIDI echo happening.  I'm not sure how this would
happen with
hardware, but I know that Cakewalk Sonar automatically defaults to MIDI
Echo: Automatic,
which means that whatever track you have highlighted (selected) receives 
from any MIDI input and transmits it to the MIDI output defined by the
track.  Because
of the way I have things set up this means that, if I accidentally leave 
track selected when I'm playing along with a sequence, when I press a 
the FCB1010 it sends the signal to the EDP and then immediately sends it
again through
Sonar, which causes the kinds of problems you're describing.  

What multi-FX box are you using?  Including that would probably go a long
way towards
getting help on the list.

Subject: FCB1010 EDP MIDI thru problem?

Hey folks...

Just searched through the archives to see if I'm the only one who's
experienced this odd problem... apparently I am (yikes!!) 

I'm using the Behringer FCB1010 to control a pair of EDP's using midi note
on/off info.
If I connect the FCB1010 midi out directly into the EDP's midi in,
everything works fine...
But if the midi out from the FCB1010 first goes into one of the midi 
(multi fx) in my rack, then I use the device's midi thru to feed the EDP,
the EDP doesn't respond and will sometimes do strange things like go into
parameter mode when I try and send a note message...

I can't believe this is happening! And it's driving me crazy... help!!!

Any ideas? Anyone? Please??
