I may have to many stomps but I see no way around it. It is all necessary. I need a wah, whammy, octaver, 3 types of distortion, tremolo, delay, and phaser. It is all part of my sound. I agree that if you have more than 10 stomps you have to many but, come on, only 5????
Okay, yeah, there is probably something wrong with me. Because most midi controllers these days have 5 or less buttons. I'm bipolar and ADD, I need options at my toe.
There's no reason you can't have all those stomps, but with NO2CC's stomp box feature and the global MIDI settings you could only control the bypass on five of them.
If you feel the urge to RiverDance on the FCB1010 to control 10 of them during a blistering 12 second lead solo
, you can do that as well, but you won't be able to use the NO2CC stomp mode. You'll get no indication a stomp is on or off other than what you hear but it's simple to do.
The big difference will be that the stomp controls will be "preset" based instead of global. Thus if you have 10 pedals in 10 presets, you're going to have to manually assign controls to each and every one of them. There's no short cut.
1. Program your FCB1010 with 10 notes for any bank, buttons 1-10, disable all other items in each of those patches except for the expression pedals.
2. You set up NO2CC MIDI IN and OUT the same as outlined in the NO2CC manual.
3. In NO2CC turn off the Stompbox Mode.
4. Run Amplitube.
5. Set up Amplitube's MIDI as outlined in the NO2CC manual.
6. CTRL Click on the stomp bypass button you want ; Select Assign MIDI-->Learn Bypass
7. Press the button on the FCB1010 that you want for that stomp bypass.
(Amplitube will have heard it and it's learning dialog will go away).
8. Continue along until all 10 stomps (or less) have been assigned.
9. Click the MIDI button in Amplitube
You should see all the stomps you just assigned in the "Preset" section. Click on each on in the "Latch" column so it says ON.
That's it. When you use one of the 10 buttons on the FCB1010 that stomp will turn off, press it again it will turn on.
