Re: Controlling the EDP and LP1 together,which footcontroller?

Hi Mark,
Yes, this is the way ive been working with the LP1,assigning the function 
via "midi learn".Ive checked every bank,patch as you say and turned off 
note off and any message associated to control the EDP except for the cc 
message to use the expression pedal to control feedback on the EDP.This 
should not be a problem, since i have pedal 1 on the fcb1010 set globally 
specifically to control the EDP on a different midi channel than pedal 2 
which controls feedback of the LP1 also set on a different midi channel.
Also since i have the UnO software upgrade on the fcb1010 i use Ripwerx to 
see the whole programming clearly in every bank and patch and everything 
seems to be clean...
Id hate to give up using any of this boxes because of this problem i love 
the EDP!
