FCB1010 and MIDI OX

As I mentioned elsewhere, I've got an FCB1010 and very nice it is too.
I use one bank of the footswitches to switch between some patch maps. I've got the FCB1010 sending Prog Change messages for each footswitch with this map in place (called "PgmToChan.pmi"):
The .oxm files are then used to map channel 1 through 10 to the appropriate channel, letting me use the FCB1010 to change the channel on my MK249! Neat.
The generic "AllToChN.oxm" looks like this (as a .txm):
The 10 in the last line before [Options] is the bit that changes to reflect the channel number.
|MOXMAP Version 5 |
The "-voices" map above is to control the Tapeworm VSTi. It has an automatable parameter to change voice that I've got set to MIDI CC 84. But I like being able to hit Program Change to change it. So the following line added after the "16,*,* ..." line in a map lets me:
The "-pedals" map turns MIDI Note On/Note Off into MIDI CC toggling - because I can't seem to get the FCB1010 to do this by itself. Again, added after the "16,*, ..." line:
The FCB1010 is then set to transmit Note 0 to 3 on four of the switches. MIDI OX turns these into MIDI CCs 64 to 67. I then use these for VST automation in my host. Notice that I've coded up for both Note Off and Note On with velocity 0 to turn the CC off, just in case! (Actually, the FCB1010 can choose between Running Status on or off; with it on, it uses note on with velocity zero, IIRC)
