Okay... I have a question that's a little off topic, but still related to the FCB1010. First, let me set up a scenario...
Let's say that on Bank 00, Patch 1 I have expression pedal A set to control the volume of track 1. Then, on Bank 00, Patch 2 I have expression pedal A set to control the volume of track 2. In both cases, Pedal A goes between values 0 to 127.
Now, let's say that expression pedal A is currently pulled back (value 0) and I want to raise the volumes of both track 1 and track 2 sequentially. So first I select bank one and push expression pedal A up to 127. Next I select patch 2 so that I can use expression pedal A to raise the volume of track 2, but I have a problem because expression pedal A is currently set in the 127 value position (pushed all the way forward) due to my raising the volume of track 1. If I pull back on expression pedal A, the volume automatically snaps to a value somewhere around 127 and I'm not able to have a nice fade in.
Currently, to defeat this I need to have another patch created where expression pedal A doesn't control anything. I select that patch, move the pedal to the desired postion, then select patch 2 and raise the volume of track 2. It works, but isn't the most favorable solution and that's where my question comes in.
Does anyone know of a program or some such which will defeat this? I'm thinking that a possible solution would be for this program to inhibit any values from being passed to Ableton until the pedal is in the position that corresponds to current value of the parameter that is to be controlled. So, in my example I would be able to bring expression pedal A back towards value 0 and it wouldn't affect Ableton at all until I actually transmitted a 0 value at which point the pedal would now pass values to Ableton and I could perform my fade in.
That's just my theory of how it might work, but if anybody knows of an application or other workaround which would allow me to achieve my goal I would be very appreciative to hear about it.
How about the damn pedal B?!...lol...I'm just kidding n' probably I'm missing something of your setup 'cause I'm surprised U never mentioned pedal B...even if U're using pedal B for another function well then move that function on another patch...in the scenario U described the vol track 1 n' vol track 2 has to be in the same patch so U won't have midi relative\absolute problems n' U won't even have to bother to change the patch...in addition I personally would assign the very same exp pedal controllers for all the presets in bank00 so U are free to use all the buttons from 1 to 10 as U wish n' then if I need to controll other functions with the exp pedals I would do that from bank01...that way with simple up n' down buttons U will have all the functions U want with exp pedals n' at the same time U will free all the other buttons for other functions
