i dont know how it is with the behringer but in my case (nobles mf2) it just makes more sense to use midi notes because i have more usable buttons then. in programm change mode or cc-mode i couldn't use the up and down buttons to send data. in the midinote mode i have those two extrabuttons and this rules over any other argument i guess
I love clarity's post - gave me hope on a dark night - but that makes sense about getting 2 extra buttons. I found a great instructable on how to programme the fcb1010 for notes:http://www.notreble.com/buzz/2010/02/22 ... -software/
in short (excuse plagiarism!)
Select the preset (1-10) you wish to edit with the UP and DOWN pedals (I use Preset 1).
Then keep DOWN pressed for a few seconds. The device will now enter PRESET programming mode. The green SWITCH1/SWITCH2 LED in the display will flash.
Press UP/ENTER. The SELECT LED in the display will light up.
Press footswitch 10, keeping it pressed for a few seconds. This will activate the NOTE function. Then, press footswitch 10 quickly once more. The footswitch LED will flash.
Confirm your selection by pressing UP/ENTER. The NUMBER LED will light up.
Press the number footswitch 1-10 (or move the expression pedal) to which you wish to assign this MIDI NOTE.
Confirm your selection by pressing UP/ENTER or cancel by pressing DOWN/ESCAPE. The SELECT LED in the display will light up.
To assign other numbered footswitches to MIDI NOTES, just follow steps 4-7 for each one.
When finished editing, exit PRESET programming mode by keeping DOWN/ESCAPE pressed for a few seconds.
Now although that may seem complex, once you have done it a few times it will feel much more natural to you. Promise!
