Heyho Guys,

I got an MP1 v2.00 a couple of weeks ago.
Also i got an Behringer FCB1010 Floorboard(stock/no unO) and a TC Electronic G-Major 2.

My Setup is as follows:
Signal: Guitar --> ADA Front Input --> ADA Outputs A/B -->G Major 2 Inputs A/B --> G Major 2 Output Mono --> Laney Head FX Return
MIDI: FCB1010 Out --> ADA MIDI In --> ADA MIDI Thru --> G Major 2 MIDI In

ADA listening on MIDI Channel 1
G Major 2 listening on MIDI Channel 16
So I got the FCB sending 2 Program Changes per Preset (PC1 [Midi Channel 16] / PC2 [Midi Channel 1])

My Problem now is:
If I press „Bank 1 #3“ on the FCB the G Major 2 is supposed to change to Preset 13 and ADA to Preset 102
If  I press „Bank 1 # 7“ on the FCB the G Major 2 is supposed to change to Preset 17 and ADA to Preset 38
Sometimes this change works, sometimes the ADA stays on ist preset and only the G Major 2 switches correctly (which it does every time correctly)

I made a small mp4 video, which I uploaded on zippyshare to show the problem better (Watch out, its around 40 MB but only 18 seconds  :dunno: ).
http://www86.zippyshare.com/v/3ghH2aUa/file.html

If I put both devices listening on MIDI Channel  1 the G Major 2 works fine and the ADA switches very often to preset #128 and stays there.

I Hope you can help me with this issue.

Thank you and sorry for my bad English (I’m German  :) )

Greetings
Griphook


EDIT: I did not see the Troubleshooting-Category, but I think this topic will suit better in that category. So could any Moderator move this Thread? :)

Oh okay, as long as it works.

Thanks for this, but now some of the MP-1 presets show another strange behavior.
PC #19 gets me to preset #16,
PC #20 goes to Preset #29,

So the Mapping does not seem to be okay. Is there any possibilty to configure that each ProgramChange-Number equals the same Preset-Number in the MP-1?

The manual will tell you how to sort your Midi Mapping.  A good read if you don't already have the manual and are relatively new to the MP-1.    :wave:

You can do a 1 to 1 midi mapping reset.

Press the STORE button and then BANK + 2 (togheter) .When it worked the display should show the command.

Hey Guys,

Sorry for not answering that whole time.

thanks alot for your help :)
the Remapping worked fine :)
Can it be that version 2 of the manual is for the V2.xx MP1 and Version 1 for 1.38?
I understand Version 1 better than Version 2.

So everything should be okay.

Yes that's correct.Well for me i like the version 2 better,i think it's a matter of opinion  :lol:

But working on 2 different midi channels still doesn't work i presume?

Hey R doesn't Mike B has the same setup?Maybe he could try it and see if it works on his rig?

Havent tried 2 Channels Again. As long as other Devices only hear on their specific channel, I dont mind that problem. Maybe i could try some other channels than channel 1 for the MP-1.

I also got my unO-Chip for the FCB. Maybe this does the Job better. I will tell you as soon as i tested it :)

Yep, i have the same setup.  My mp1 listens on channel 1 and the g-major listens on channel 2.  I have never had a problem with the message not getting through.  Make sure you are actually using midi-through and not midi-out.  The fcb will send 2 separate messages with an infinitesimal delay between them.  If the ada is listening on all channels i would expect it to be responding to both messages.  As long as the mp1 PC message comes out second (which is how you have it set), it should be fine.

Hey Griphook, welcome to the depot  :wave: . I can move the topic if you like but it's ok here I recon ? Hey your English is fine although Mike and I may teach you some Australian along the way LoL.
Mike really got into programming the FCB1010, from discussions I've had with him about that journey the FCB is a very flexible unit (can do your head in though  :facepalm: , so may options). If you dig around here (check MikeBs posts is probably fastest (click his name > his profile displays > show posts)), there's some good stuff about the FCB.
I tend to use the mapping in the ADA (I have MP2) as these days I've gone very simple. So I have both units (MP2 and Quadverb) listening on ALL and I map the MP2 patch to a patch in the Quadverb and use the midi out on the MP2 > Quadverb midi in. This is primarily because I use the same dely + rev on most patches.  I have a Midverb 4 in the MP2s stereo parallel FX loop and I use the MXC quad switch to turn the loop on/off so I can dial up additional delay etc and turn it on/off (I use this very rarely though). The MV4 also listens to ALL and gets its MIDI input from MP2 through.
Because the ADA is 1 to 128 and the Quadverb is 0 to 127 I have to map to 1 less (eg ADA #10 = QV #9 etc).

The unO-Chip unhappily did not fix it.

Alright, I tested a few more things:

  • Changing the PC-Assignment, so the MP1 gets PC1 on Channel 1 and  GMaj gets PC2 on Channel 2 --> Still the same Problem
  • Unplug the MIDI COnnection between MP1 and GMaj --> Still the same Problem (would have been surprised if it worked this way)

Now comes the real strange part:
I tried some other PC-Configurations just to check, how the MP1 works with the MIDI-Messages
So the setup is "FCB MIDI Out - ADA MIDI IN - ADA MIDI Thru - GMaj MIDI In" (MP1 PC1 Channel 1, GMaj PC2 Channel 2)

Attached are my Testing-Patches. As you can see, there is Bank 2 #2 which sends 2 different PCs, Bank 2 #3 sends the same PC on each Channel, Bank 2 #4 should only change the GMaj, Bank 2 #5 should only change the MP1.

Bank 2 #2 and Bank 2 #3 show the same Problem as described in Post 1 But i also face a new Problem. Sometimes the MP1, which should be just listening on Channel 1, changes to Preset 22 (which is sent on PC2 Channel 2).

On Bank 2 #5 the MP1 changes to Preset 25 inconstantly.

Now to Patch Bank 2 #4. When i press  Button 4 only the GMaj shall change to Preset 24 but apparently the MP1 sometimes catches this PC too, so it changes to Preset 24 also.  :crazy:
Sometimes the "catching-Thingy" happens on Buttons 2 and 3 , too.


Don't know why. I believe, changing the MP1s MIDI-Channel to "All" might just be a workaround  :dunno:

Very strange behaviour. I'm a bit clueless

Hey guys,

i tested a bit more, but unfortunately without success.

I changed the midi-routing to: FCB Out -> GMaj2 Midi In ->  GMaj2 Midi Thru -> ADA Midi In but it stays the same problem.
Another Idea was that th behaviour depends on changing(or not) the ADA Voicing (Dist-> SS, Dist->Clean Tube, etc.), but this did not fix it either.
I even tested every single MIDI-Channel on the ADA


Have you got any other things I could check?
