Re: Setting up a behringer fcb 1010

It allows more functions and easier set up. Assign ability of swicht functions from upper and lower rows. IF......you're just gonna use it for DMXIS, the standard chip works fine. I actually use mine for presets up to as many as I like per bank. And the expression pedals as a haze output and master ...

Re: Setting up a behringer fcb 1010

Get an editor for the FCB there's free ones out there.
Also get a Uno chip and install it.
Makes the function of the FCB much better.

Re: Can I use a 5 pin midi controller w/a usb converter box

Yes and no. You dont get an editing option with the stage setter like you do with a lot of modern midi devices. So you cant map the functions of your stage setter to specific function of DMXIS. It is a stand alone dmx device so the midi in it is at fixed channel values.. That's why I keep pushing yo...

Re: Can I use a 5 pin midi controller w/a usb converter box

Yeah stagesetters have a crazy midi assignment that's difficult to work with occasionally because there is no editor for the midi assignments. In other words , they're fixed to certain functions and that's what you get. That's why I use the Akai stuff. I can assign single channel functions to fades ...

Re: Can I use a 5 pin midi controller w/a usb converter box

Yup I use a Roland breakout box all the time, that way I can add my FCB1010 to the controllers I am able to use.
I the connect all my midi devices through that.
A powered usb hub helps also.

Re: Can I use a 5 pin midi controller w/a usb converter box

We use a Akai midimix, and a Akai mpd26 Simultaneously to mix lighting on.
Usb to laptop. We almost have a universe depending on how our fixtures assigned.
Probably will have to upgrade to SBA soon.

Re: How to cycle through presets with one midi button???

I would just use a midi assignment for your triggers. Set up your roland to send a midi note on a couple of pads/triggers and just use them to change presets. You can assign it in Dmxis to scroll through presets one by one forward or back. Just look in the menus at the top right of your Dmxis progra...

Just a few from the Powerman 5000 show last Friday.
What a blast.
Drowning Pool next week.
With the Akai I'm able to do quick preset changes a lot easier now.
Thank you for all your help!!

The 1st preset will be note value=0, 2nd note value=1, etc. I leave the 1st preset blank so the 2nd (note value=1) matches up with button #1 on the controller. It keeps it easier for me.

I programmed each of the pads to correspond to the midi value of presets. I don't remember if it's channel 15 or 16, I think it's 15. Then the note values would match up to the preset number. To keep it easy I named each preset with the pad number followed by a description (i.e. 05A Purple Front Sl...

Has anyone used the Akai MPD 26 as a live midi controller? And if so how well did it work?
Would you recommend it? Easily configurable?
