  • Want to trigger on/off some effects via midi (toggle)

    hi, I want to send a CC or note on, to an fx and have it stay on until note off or CC, is this possible and how?

    Thanks for your kind help

    Have you tried the method described in the user manual on pages 4 and 5? There are both MIDI and CV ways to do this described there. The manual includes the mapping of cells to MIDI notes on channel 10.

    here’s a link to the manual:

      Thanks for the reply, will try it tonight.

      Is the FXBox restricted to midi channel 10? And why ?

      Most humans on this planet agree that midi channel 10 is typically reserved for drums. So having FXBox limited to channel 10 forces us to re-assign all other midi drums to something non-standard.

      Assigning a global midi channel is kinda basic midi stuff and I’m shocked that a product so advanced technologically would choose not to have this.

        Hi Orbiter,
        i believe it is limited to channel 10. Aaron will have to explain his reasoning. He is on his way back from Superbooth in Berlin today, so it will take a little longer for him to reply. Thanks for your patience.

          Thanks for asking.

          I don't have a good reason for you regarding channel 10. I agree that being able to change it is an important feature. It is on our todo list.

            Aaron I do want to thank you for all the efforts in maintaining all this. I understand how demanding all this must be and hope to shake your hand someday.

            BTW Christine is awesome! Time for a raise...
