Okay folks, I spent an hour with Tom Nowlin over at the Overloud TH-U Unofficial Fan Group on Faceboook, top bloke, really knows his stuff and wouldn't accept a drink via PayPal for his help.

Below is a step by step guide to set up a Behringer FCB1010 to use in TH-U and Reaper but you can adapt the same principle to do it for everything I would think.

Apologies for the video quality, he recorded his monitor with his phone, I couldn't see how to save the videos (if anyone can tell me how to save videos from Facebook that would be great and I could upload them) so I had to record my screen with my web cam and it wasn't getting the exposure right for some reason. I'll try to to find my software for recording screen footage out, that will make them better.
Hopefully you can see enough to sort it wink.gif

Here goes:

Setting up a Behringer FCB1010 in TH-U and Reaper.

First of all download the Mountain Utilities software here https://mountainutilities.eu/fcb1010

In Reaper enable send and receive of your midi device, OPTIONS>PREFERENCES>MIDI DEVICES right click your device and enable in both the send and receive section.

Create two tracks, first your guitar track and second your midi track. Set them both to record.

Set up your midi device in BOTH sections in the Mountain software.

Receive the data from your FCB.

Check you’ve received the data.

Programming. You can select however many you want.

Enable expression pedals

If your screen looks like this you’re ready to send to the FCB. Mine had CTRL2 enabled somehow but you can disable it by doing the opposite of what you did when enabling the pedals.

Now in the Mountain software, click the green midi button next to the red one you pressed earlier and follow the instructions. NOTE: After you click “OK” you have to hold the DOWN button down on the FCB and the FCB should countdown from 9 to 0, that saves the new data to the FCB.

If that doesn’t work:
Press the green midi button on the mountain editor but don’t press ok.
Turn off your FCB.
Unplug midi cables from FCB.
Hold the DOWN footswitch and power on the FCB.
Once the green light shows up under global config press the DOWN footswitch.
Press the 7 footswitch.
Plug in your midi cable from the OUT of your interface (Scarlett in my case) to the IN on your FCB.
Press OK on the Mountain editor.
Hold down the down button on your FCB until it counts down from 9.
Put the other midi cable in from the IN on your interface to the OUT on the FCB.

Try it out.

Enjoy your new toy 😊

Here is the Sysex file>>> Attached File  FCB_DATA.zip ( 681bytes ) Number of downloads: 10
I can email it to you if you PM me. I can’t promise it will work but I can’t see why not. Open the Mountain editor, hit FILE>FCB1010>OPEN and select this file then send it into your FCB 😉 You’ll get more mileage if you do the long route though but it’s your call 😉

It's great once it's set Mertay, I can now use TH-U just how I used my Helix, on-screen editor and pedals on the floor. I can now sell my Helix, recoup the outlay for TH-U and the FCB and have money left. The bloke that helped me is using the mobile version of TH-U for gigging.

Cheers

Phil

Stoked you got it going! Would you mind posting this in the OVERLOUD THU Preset Vault? I'd love to have it in there just so it doesn't get lost in the shuffle. You can upload the sysex file by just compressing it first then uploading the compressed file smile.gif Just like uploading an overloud patch, you have to make a zip file out of it first, then you can upload it. smile.gif Here is the link to Overloud THU preset vault so you can put in the "HOW TO" on setting up the FCB with THU. I"m sure it's going to come up again!
