Re: Mobius Mystery part 2

A quick comment related Jeff's mentioning of the FCB sending out MIDI
PC messages it is not programmed to send out. I have owned three FCB's
and each of them sent out random bursts of MIDI CC# data now and then
in addition to the MIDI Notes it was programmed to send out. Not
thinking that this phenomenon can cause the issue Kevin suffers
though, just wanted to complete  the picture of The FCB's
