Re: fcb1010 expression b still not working for volume!
This thing with patch no9 blinking is either a sign that your fcb is
faulty, or that you weren't 100% following the manual.
Trevor's mail will sort you out if it's the latter.
Otherwise, most likely cause of pedal problems is that you need to
calibrate the pedal.
CC 7 is the one generally associated with volume.
Just stick at it the fcb1010 works really well controlling the EDP, so
you're going to have a good time :-)
