MIDI FOOT CONTROLLER FCB1010
1.1.3 Warranty
1. INTRODUCTION
Congratulations! With the BEHRINGER MIDI FOOT CONTROLLER
FCB1010 you purchased an ultra-flexible controller unit for a
wide range of applications, whether you are a guitarist, keyboard
player or studio engineer: 10 BANKS with 10 PRESETS each and
two fully user-programmable expression pedals will give you
enough flexibility to manage your MIDI equipment. Guitar players
will particularly appreciate the option of selecting channels using
two analog SWITCHES, as they allow you to fully control both
amplifier and effects from one “switching center”. And with its
ultra-rugged enclosure and built-in power supply the FCB1010
is absolutely ready for the road, too. The easy-to-use
programming interface gives you fun instead of frustration, and
invites you to fully exploit the capabilities of your MIDI equipment.
+

FOOTSWITCHES 1 through 10/0. These keys are used
for changing the presets, programming, entering values in
programming mode and activating the DIRECT SELECT
function (10/0 only).
1.1.2 Initial operation
Please make sure the unit is provided with sufficient ventilation,
and never place the FCB1010 on top of an amplifier or in the
vicinity of a heater to avoid the risk of overheating.
+
Before plugging the unit into a power socket, please
make sure you have selected the correct voltage:
The fuse compartment near the power plug socket contains
three triangular markings. Two of these triangles are opposite
one another. The voltage indicated adjacent to these markings is
the voltage to which your unit has been set up, and can be
altered by rotating the fuse compartment by 180°. ATTENTION:
This does not apply to export models that were for
example manufactured only for use with 120 V!

2. PROGRAMMING THE FCB1010
In this chapter you will learn to program your FCB1010 and
adapt it to your specific MIDI set-up. But don’t worry, you won’t
have to learn a programming language before you could give
your FCB1010 a single MIDI command. The unit will perform all
functions for you, one after the other. Simply make and confirm
your choices. If particular functions prompt you to enter a
parameter, this will be covered specifically.
2.1 Selecting BANKS and PRESETS
Fig. 1.2: Rear panel connectors
FUSE HOLDER / VOLTAGE SELECTOR. Please make
sure that your local voltage matches the voltage indicated
on the unit, before you attempt to connect and operate the
FCB1010. Blown fuses may only be replaced by fuses of
the same type and rating. Some models allow for inserting
the fuse holder in two different positions, in order to switch
over from 230-V to 120-V operation, and vice versa. Please
note that for 120-V operation outside Europe, you need to
use a fuse of a higher rating (see chapter 6
“SPECIFICATIONS”).
IEC POWER CONNECTOR. Use the enclosed power cord
to connect the unit to the mains.
+
Use the POWER switch to power up your FCB1010.
Always make sure the POWER switch is in its “Off” setting
when you connect the FCB1010 to the mains.
There are two options to select a BANK and the PRESETS it
contains. Which one you use depends on the DIRECT SELECT
parameter in the GLOBAL CONFIGURATION menu. If DIRECT
SELECT is on, you can use the PRESET footswitches to directly
select the BANK number followed by the PRESET number. If
DIRECT SELECT is off, you need to step through the various
BANKS (using the UP/DOWN switches), then select a PRESET
from a bank. The default setting is OFF. The illustrations below
show the two options.
2.1.1 DIRECT SELECT deactivated
Let’s assume you wish to select PRESET #1 from BANK #3...
Step 1
Use the UP/DOWN switches to go to the BANK that contains the
PRESET of your choice (here: BANK #3).
Step 2:
Select the PRESET you wish to use (here: PRESET #1).
Attention: The POWER switch does not physically
disconnect the unit from the mains. Always unplug
the unit from the mains when you do not plan on
using it for prolonged periods of time.
SERIAL NUMBER. Please take the time to have the
warranty card filled out completely, and return it within 14
days after the date of purchase, so as to be entitled to
benefit from our extended warranty. Or use our online
registration option available on the World Wide Web under
www.behringer.com.

SWITCH 1 and 2. Use these jacks to connect your amplifier
for channel selection (mono or stereo phone jack cable).
MIDI IN. The MIDI IN of your FCB1010 connects to a
sequencer or similar device, in order to download the
memory data saved before with the help of the MIDI SysEx
function. Additionally, data can be looped through the
FCB1010 and merged with other data using the MIDI MERGE
function. Subsequently, the combined data are available at
the MIDI OUT/THRU connector.
MIDI OUT/THRU. Use this jack to connect the devices you
wish to control from your FCB1010. The SOFT THRU circuit
allows you to loop through any signals present at the MIDI
IN of your FCB1010, merge them with the unit’s own data
stream, and finally output the combined data at the MIDI
OUT.

External equipment, for example guitar or bass
amps, can be controlled by using SWITCH 1 and 2
outputs of the FCB1010. If the FCB1010 triggers this
function, you should first check if the piece of
equipment you are trying to control reacts to
connection state (contact open or closed) or current
feed (contact closed as long as the switch is
depressed). BEHRINGER guitar and bass amps react
to current feeds. Therefore, when you wish to
remotely control channel change on a BEHRINGER
guitar amp not via MIDI but via switch outputs
(because you have no MIDI cable at your disposal),
you have to power off switch 1 & 2 LEDs in GLOBAL
CONFIGURATION menu under CONFIG. These LEDs
are on in the default setting and indicate that
programmed connection state is kept.

The NOTE function will be particularly useful for so-called taptempo applications. Many of today’s multi-effects devices allow
the user to enter the delay time by means of an on-board TAP
button. The device measures the time between two TAP button
presses and uses this interval to adjust the delay time. Often,
this function can be remotely controlled via MIDI. In this case,
“tapping” is the transmission of two subsequent NOTE ON
commands, which is what the NOTE function of your FCB1010
does for you. For example, this is how a sequencing software
can be launched or closed.
s
Confirm your selection with UP/ENTER. The NUMBER LED
lights up.

s
Use the footswitches 1 through 10/0 or EXPRESSION
PEDAL A to enter the MIDI NOTE number you wish to send
with the PRESET. You can choose from the values 0 through
127.
+
To program a MIDI function, you have to first activate
it. Individual MIDI functions are activated by keeping
the corresponding keys pressed for a few seconds.
Active MIDI functions are indicated by a permanently
lit footswitch LED.
The table below shows which musical notes are assigned to
which MIDI notes (with a detailed list for the octave from C-2 to
C-1; simply use this pattern to assign the remaining notes/octaves
yourself).
10
+
+
If you program the NOTE function with a PRESET, a
NOTE ON command will be sent each time you select
the PRESET. Getting your foot off the switch
transmits the NOTE OFF command.
To “tap” the tempo, simply press the PRESET switch
several times in the rhythm of the music.
CNT 1 is always transmitted together with the note
on command. For example, it can be used for
sending a volume value (number 07) together with
a note to trigger a sound. When the controller’s
operation is not desired, it can either be relayed to
an unused MIDI channel in GLOBAL CONFIGURATION
(this channel is then valid for all presets) or an
unused controller number can be assigned to the
controller (can be done for each individual preset).
2. PROGRAMMING THE FCB1010
MIDI FOOT CONTROLLER FCB1010

s
The VALUE to be entered now corresponds to the upper
limit of the parameter range determined by the controlled
device. That might sound a bit confusing, but it’s quite easy:
the manual that came with the device usually contains an
effects table listing the parameter range to be input via MIDI
in order to control the delay time. For example, the device
might use the entire range from 0 through 127; or a limited
range from 0 through 63, and so on. So, the VALUE
parameter simply determines the resolution with which the
delay time can be programmed. The higher the value, the
higher the resolution.
s
Confirm your entry with UP/ENTER. The SELECT LED lights
up.
s
Disable Control Change 1 (CNT 1) by means of a long footswitch press on footswitch #6. This is necessary because
otherwise each time you select the PRESET used for tempo
tapping, the FCB1010 would transmit the controller defined
here (including the adjusted VALUE parameter), instead of
the FCB1010-generated value.
s
Quit PRESET programming mode by means of a long press
on DOWN. Now, the TAP-TEMPO function is ready for use.
This function allows you to configure one controller so that it
alternately sends two different values, e.g. effect bypass, drive
on/off, etc.
s
In order to enable the controller switch-over function, you
need to globally select the same MIDI channel for CNT1 and
CNT2 (see chapter 2.2), and enter the same controller
number for CNT1 and CNT2 in the preset (NUMBER, see
chapter 2.4.4).
The first time you recall the preset, it will send the controller
value of CNT1 (VALUE 1), with each additional key press you
can alternate between CNT2 and CNT1. Example: Select preset
1 without DRIVE function on the BEHRINGER V-AMP—each time
you press the same button again, DRIVE will be switched
on or off respectively: PROG CHG 1 = 1, CNT 1 NUMBER = 26,
VALUE 1 = 0, CNT 2 NUMBER = 26, VALUE 1 = 127.
2.6 TAP-TEMPO function
In addition to the NOTE function, which is used by many effects
devices to “tap” the song tempo, the FCB1010 offers you another
way to reach this goal: the TAP-TEMPO function also allows you
to enter the song tempo, however, transmits a FCB1010generated controller value to the controlled effects device, in
order to adjust the delay time. Advantage: you can also control
devices that cannot process NOTE commands, but only allow
for changing the delay time by means of a MIDI controller.
+
The TAP-TEMPO function does not work with
DIRECT SELECT enabled.
The TAP-TEMPO function has no dedicated switch, but is
activated as follows:
s
Select the PRESET you wish to edit.
s
Keep the DOWN/ESCAPE key pressed longer than 2.5 sec.
to get to the programming mode. The green SWITCH 1/
SWITCH 2 LED in the display starts flashing.
s
Use the UP/ENTER key to get to the next page. The SELECT
LED in the display is lit.
+
To program a MIDI function, you have to first activate
it. Individual MIDI functions are activated by keeping
the corresponding keys pressed for a few seconds.
Active MIDI functions are indicated by a permanently
lit footswitch LED.
s
Select the NOTE function you wish to edit by keeping the
10/0 key pressed for a few seconds and then consequently
tap it once again briefly. The footswitch LED blinks.
s
Confirm your selection with UP/ENTER. The NUMBER LED
lights up.
s
Enter the maximal possible delay time value for the equipment
you wish to control. Calculate the value that is to be entered
for NOTE by dividing the maximum delay time value by
10 ms. Confirm your selection with UP/ENTER. The SELECT
LED lights up.
+
To use the tap-tempo feature, press the footswitch (which
selects the PRESET just programmed) twice in the rhythm of the
music, e.g. every crotchet or quaver note. The FCB1010 will
calculate the delay time and send it to the receiving device, by
means of the controller you selected before. If the interval
between the two footswitch presses is greater than the maximum
NOTE/NUMBER value, the FCB1010 will divide the time by 2 until
it is equal to or smaller than the maximum value. Thus, a crotchet
delay becomes a quaver or semiquaver delay, depending on
which value can be processed in the receiving device.
2.7 Data storage
2.7.1 Saving the FCB1010 memory with the help of
SysEx dumps
The FCB1010 allows you to transmit PRESETS in the form of
system-exclusive data to a sequencer or other MIDI recorder. In
this way, you can save your data or manage several MIDI setups (e.g. studio equipment, guitar equipment, etc.).
If you wish to save your data on an external sequencer/
computer, please follow the instructions below:
s
Connect the MIDI OUT of your FCB1010 to the MIDI IN of
your sequencer/computer (see fig. 2.5)
s
Keep the DOWN switch pressed roughly 2.5 sec during
power-up to enter the GLOBAL CONFIGURATION menu.
s
Press UP until the CONFIGURATION LED lights up. Now the
unit is in CONFIGURATION mode.
s
Start the RECORD function on your sequencer/computer.
The footswitch LED lights up and is no longer lit up when all
SysEx data from the FCB1010 have been transmitted. Then
press footswitch #6 to dump the FCB1010 data. Quit the
GLOBAL CONFIGURATION menu by means of a long press
on DOWN/ESCAPE.
Please note that the FCB1010 allows for a maximum
delay time of 1,270 ms, which is due to the MIDI
standard’s maximum resolution of 7 bits (= 128
values).
s
Activate control change 1 (CNT 1) by keeping the footswitch
6 pressed for a few seconds. The footswitch LED lights
up and is activated by briefly tapping the footswitch (the
LED blinks).
s
Press UP/ENTER again. Now the FCB1010 prompts you to
enter a controller number. The NUMBER LED lights up. Enter
the controller number which the manufacturer of your
effects device has preset for delay time changes. Confirm
your selection with UP/ENTER. The VAL1 LED lights up.

wait for system-exclusive data (the footswitch LED lights
up). Start the PLAYBACK function on your sequencer/
computer to play back the previously stored file. The footswitch LED flashes while the FCB1010 is receiving data.
Once the data have been received correctly, the LED dies
out. Now your programs are back in the FCB1010’s memory.
Quit GLOBAL CONFIGURATION mode by means of a long
press on DOWN.
This function allows you to restore factory defaults of your
FCB1010.
+
In doing so, all preset settings made by you are
overwritten!
Resetting your FCB1010 lets you restore various default
settings that are optimized for use with BEHRINGER audio
equipment. This is why there are three different key combinations
that let you reload the desired defaults into the memory of your
FCB1010. This key combinations are shown in table 2.5:

Keep the respective footswitches pressed for roughly 2.5
sec while powering up your FCB1010. The displays reads “09”
to “00” and the points are blinking. When the points are no longer
shown, your FCB1010 has been reset to factory defaults and is
ready for operation.
2.9 Calibrating expression pedals A and B
Should you experience problems with exact MIDI controller
data transmission while using the expression pedals, we
recommend calibrating the pedals. Calibrating the pedals follows
the complition of the FCB1010 self-test.
+

All software versions 1.4 and newer allow for direct
calibration by keeping the switches 1 and 5 pressed
while powering up the unit. If your FCB1010 features
the software version 1.4 or higher, skip the first 4
steps in the set of instructions that follow (i.e. start
at point number 5). To find if your unit features
version 1.4 or higher of the software, first try
keeping the switches 1 and 5 pressed while
powering up the unit. If nothing happens, start
calibrating your FCB1010 beginning with the first
step in the list that follows.

Here, the FCB1010 is used to control a guitar amp that is
equipped with a MIDI interface.
Connect the MIDI OUT jack of your FCB1010 to the MIDI IN of
your amp (see fig. 3.1), using a standard 5-pole MIDI cable.
Program your FCB1010 as described in chapter 2.4. Please refer
to the user’s manual of your amp to find out what functions can
be controlled via MIDI.
3.2 Expanded setup (using the switch function)
Both pedals are now correctly calibrated.
3. APPLICATIONS
Several application examples that should help you with the
MIDI setup are described in this chapter.
As long as your equipment features MIDI connectors, you can
control it entirely via the FCB1010. All you need is a MIDI IN
connector at the other end.
No audio signal pass through the FCB1010 and consequently
no signal processing takes place in it either. The FCB1010 merely
transmits control data to your MIDI equipment, so it can for example
call up presets, turn effects on or off, or adjust volume. You can
find more detailed information on this subject in chapter 4
“MIDI—A STANDARD, A REVOLUTION.”
3.1 Basic setup
Fig. 3.2: Guitar setup (using the switch function)
Here, the FCB1010 is used to control an effects device via
MIDI. In addition, the switch function is used to toggle between
the two channels (clean/overdrive) of the guitar amp. Please
connect your effects device via the FX send/return loop of your
amp. Now connect the SWITCH 1 connector with the footswitch
input of your guitar amp. Use a standard jack cable for this
purpose. Connect the MIDI OUT connector of the FCB1010 to the
MIDI IN connector of the effects device using a standard MIDI
cable.
The effects processor is controlled via MIDI, while the SWITCH
function toggles the amp. Thus, you’ll need no additional
footswitch when you switch between the channels; instead,
your entire setup is centrally controlled from the FCB1010.
3.3 Connections (general)
Please use commercial-grade cables with phone plugs to
connect the SWITCH outputs of your FCB1010 to your amplifier.
Since these outputs are normalized, you can send both switching
pulses from one SWITCH output, by using a stereo cable, which
is useful in combination with amplifiers that have a stereo phone
jack to select several functions (e.g. channel select and effect
on/off). In this case, please use only one of the two SWITCH
outputs with one stereo cable connected.
+
Find out whether or not your guitar amp supports a
stereo connection via SWITCH 1 or SWITCH 2. Simply
try and experiment to identify the switching
configuration of your amp.

MIDI FOOT CONTROLLER FCB1010
4. MIDI—A STANDARD, A REVOLUTION
In the early 80’s several leading manufacturers of electronic
musical instruments developed a common standard, which was
soon to revolutionize the entire MI industry—both from a technical
and musical point of view. The MIDI standard (short for: Musical
Instruments Digital Interface) was invented to allow musical
instruments of different makes to communicate with each other.
What is surprising in view of the rapidly developing MI industry is
the fact that this standard has basically not changed ever since,
because it was designed with future upgrades in mind. So, the
MIDI interface’s range of applications could be expanded over
the years: from the simple connection of several keyboard
instruments to one master keyboard to connecting whole studios
and live set-ups within a single MIDI network—MIDI has become
an infinite source of ideas and innovation. Numerous musicians
recognized the versatility of this standard and created new and
exciting worlds of sounds by combining different instruments to
one homogeneous whole. It is important to know that the MIDI
interface transmits no audio signals but only control data (e.g.
key, program change or volume numbers)! MIDI is just an interface
for the control and networking of devices and instruments.
At the heart of this network you could use your FCB1010 to
control all of your amplifiers, effects and peripheral devices.
Live on stage and in the studio you could control your entire
equipment in real time. MIDI control data can be stored and edited
on a computer, so that you can also use your FCB1010 to enter
controller and program change information into your computer.
4.1 MIDI connections
The MIDI connectors on the rear of the unit are on internationally
standardized 5-pin DIN jacks. To connect your FCB1010 to other
MIDI devices you need a dedicated MIDI cable. Usually,
commercially available cables are used. However, you can also
use a two-conductor shielded cable (e.g. microphone cable)
and two (rugged) 180° DIN plugs to make your own MIDI cable:
pin 2 (center) = shield, pins 4 and 5 (right and left of pin 2) =
internal conductor, pins 1 und 3 (the two outer pins) are not
used. MIDI cables should not be longer than 15 meters.
MIDI IN: serves to receive recorded system-exclusive data or
to merge any MIDI signals with FCB1010-generated data.

received at the MIDI IN can be
OUT provided that the MERGE
(GLOBAL CONFIGURATION).
MIDI OUT: The MIDI OUT allows you to transmit data to any
MIDI-compatible device/instrument.
4.2 MIDI data format
Although the FCB1010 is very easy to operate, it does make
sense to know a few things about the format of MIDI data. Each
MIDI command or message consists of up to three bytes (1 byte
= 8 bits). There’s a difference between status bytes and data
bytes: status bytes define the type of a specific MIDI message,
i.e. the actual instruction to be sent to a device, while data bytes
contain the information or parameters defined by the
corresponding status byte. One status byte can be followed by
up to two data bytes.
different context: many effects devices allow for “tapping” delay
times, etc., by measuring the time interval between two NOTE
ON messages. With the FCB1010 you can “tap” delay times or
song tempos by selecting a “NOTE” PRESET twice.
NOTE ON and NOTE OFF messages feature the following data
format:
6WDWXV%\WH
Note #
Velocity
Note On &9n (n=channel #)
Note #
Velocity
Tab. 4.1: Data format of NOTE ON and NOTE OFF
messages
The channel number range is 1 through 16, the data byte
range is 0 through 127. It should be noted though that NOTE OFF
messages are not so common today (for reasons of data
reduction, cf. running status). Usually, NOTE ON messages with
zero velocity are transmitted instead. The FCB1010 follows this
convention. By the way: when you program the NOTE function
on your FCB1010 you only need to enter the note number,
because notes are always transmitted with a velocity of 64.
4.2.2 CONTROL CHANGE messages
CONTROL CHANGE messages are the most powerful MIDI
messages, as they allow you to select and automate plenty of
parameters and functions. On your FCB1010 you can define
and transmit CONTROL CHANGE messages, e.g. to change
specific effects parameters in real time. The most important
CONTROL CHANGE messages are volume control (Controller
07), Balance (08), Panorama (09) and reverb intensity (91).
4.2.3 PROGRAM CHANGE messages
PROGRAM CHANGE messages are used to change presets
or sounds in connected devices/instruments. The parameter
range is 0 through 127.
The values 0 to 127 of the 128 presets are available. Equipment
with more than 128 presets has these presets broken down into
several banks for MIDI control.
With your FCB1010, it is possible to send MIDI bank and program
change commands by using just one keystroke. An external
piece of equipment (e.g. effects processor, sound module etc.)
can be controlled via controllers 1 & 3 in connection with PRG 5
(PROG CHG). In doing so, controllers 1 & 2 are used as 2-byte
bank select controllers, whereby up to 128 (MSB) x 128 (LSB)
banks can be dialed in. Controller 1 needs to contain the number
00 and the MSB bank value, while controller 2 needs to contain
the number 32 and the LSB bank value. The program change
command that activates the preset in the new bank is sent with
PRG 5.
Almost all devices have a list enclosed which shows the
program change number versus preset number assignment.
Some units even allow you to freely assign program change
commands to preset numbers. Please see the corresponding
user’s manual for detailed information.
There are various types of MIDI messages. Since the FCB1010
does not understand or transmit all of them, we will only deal
with those that are of importance to you in this context.
4.2.1 NOTE ON and NOTE OFF messages
NOTE ON and NOTE OFF messages are essential MIDI
messages for any keyboard virtuoso, as they allow to control
remote instruments from one master keyboard or computer. The
FCB1010, too, can send NOTE ON messages, however, in a

Note Off &8n (n=channel #)
4. MIDI—A STANDARD, A REVOLUTION
MIDI FOOT CONTROLLER FCB1010
4.2.4 Running status
Since the MIDI standard uses a serial transmission format, i.e.
transmits data successively, it was soon found that the
transmission rate is too low if the system is exploited to its full
capacity. To make up for an audibly delayed transmission of MIDI
data, the so-called running status was introduced, which
suppresses the status byte in two or more identical MIDI
messages that follow each other. For example, if the data bytes
of a controller (e.g. volume) are changed continuously, the
corresponding status byte is sent only once. Only the data byte
changes are transmitted, as long as another status byte is sent,
i.e. in each message transmitted you can eliminate 8 bits. This is
also the reason why NOTE OFF messages are no longer used.
When a keyboard player plays a scale on a keyboard and sends
these data via MIDI to a computer, each NOTE ON message
would be followed by a NOTE OFF message, each time a key is
released. The running status would identify the NOTE OFF
message as a new status byte and hence send it, which results
in a data amount of 8 notes times 8 bits, i.e. 192 bits. Since NOTE
ON messages belong to those MIDI messages that are used
most often, it was decided to send NOTE ON messages with
zero velocity instead. The audible effect is the same, but in the
Running Status the data amount can be reduced by 7 times 8
bits, i.e. 56 bits. As a consequence, the overall data amount
produced by the scale mentioned above is only 136 bits. With the
FCB1010 you are free to switch the Running Status feature on
or off (see ch. 2.2.3).
