how do I set the cc value in the FCB1010?

– Select your preset (footswitch).

– Hold DOWN for 2.5 seconds.

– Press UP to confirm the current relay switches setting.

At this point, the process diverges slightly for the two "static" CC values available per preset, and the two expression pedal CC ranges.  If either CC value, expression pedal, note, or program change is "active", then that switch LED should be solidly lit now.  If it isn't, hold the corresponding switch down for a few seconds until it's lit.

For Exp A and Exp B (from "… relay switches setting." above):

– Tap Switch 8 [Exp A] or Switch 9 [Exp B] until it flashes.

– Press UP.  You'll see the current CC number displayed.

– Change this, if you like (using the switches or EXP A to enter numerics).

(The ModFactor can LEARN the CC number, or you can match the FCB-1010 to the MF defaults.)

– Press UP.  That's the lowest CC value transmitted (heel position).  Usually 0.

– Press UP.  Now it displays highest CC value transmitted (toe position).  Usually 127.

– If you've changed the high value, press UP again.

– Press DOWN 2.5 seconds to exit.

For "static" CNT 1 and CNT 2 (from "… relay switches setting." above):

– Tap Switch 6 [CNT1] or Switch 7 [CNT 2] until it flashes.

– Press UP.  You'll see the current CC number displayed.

– Change this, if you like (using the switches to enter numerics).

(The ModFactor can LEARN the CC number, or you can match the FCB-1010 to the MF defaults.)

–  Press UP.  Enter your "static" CC value between 0-127 using the switches or Exp A.

 – Press UP again to confirm the static CC value.

–  Press DOWN 2.5 seconds to exit.

There's also a controller toggle function available.  Both CNT 1 and CNT 2 have to be set to the same CC number, and also the same MIDI channel in the Global settings to use it.  Normally, you step on an FCB-1010 preset switch, and whatever program changes, CC values, etc, are sent out.  It may send – for example – CC38 with a value of 64 on MIDI Channel 2, and CC 41 at a value of 84 on MIDI Channel 3.

With the controller toggle function [same MIDI channel], you can send out – again, as an example – CC38 with a value of 64 [CNT1] on the first switch press.  Press the switch a second time, and it sends out CC38 with a value of 127 [CNT 2].  It will toggle between the two CC values programmed into the FCB-1010 with each press of the footswitch.

That will allow you to shift between two ModFactor values; perhaps two "fixed wah" frequencies.  As for exactly what CC values to input in order to achieve that … you'll need to experiment.  If a Modfactor knob has, say, twelve possible settings, the CC value range of 128 values gets roughly divided by 12.  So any of the CC values between 0-11 might be the lowest knob setting, 12-21 might bring up the next-highest parameter setting, and so on.

I can't help you with the specific Modfactor CC values beyond that.  I'm in the process of mapping all of the PitchFactor CC values, and it's a long process.  Some of the knob parameters can use every possible CC value between 0-127 to cover all of the potential knob positions.  Others might only divide 128 values by 3 settings.

If you're going to program a lot of FCB-1010 presets, it's much easier with one of the free editors out there. Still, it's not a bad idea to learn the (convoluted) on-board process for quicks tweaks and live gig adjustments.  BTW:  I never use EXP A to input numerics for programming the FCB-1010.
