More than an editor
Altough able to receive, send, save and load FCB 1010 sysex dumps, FCBBooster is not a software editor for the Behringer pedalboard. Actually, its purpose is to abolish the need to program the pedalboard.
FCBBooster inserts between your FCB 1010 and the midi devices you want to control. Instead of programming the pedalboard, you program the application to react to the basic signals from the footswitches and pedals and then transmit a number of messages. Since these messages have a much wider variety than that of the FCB 1010 and are virtually limitless, this hugely multiplies the pedalboard capabilities. All without any hardware modification.
Take advantage of the visual feedback to mantain control over complex arrangements. Save complete setups as documents, for backup purposes and fast switching between different configurations.
Send a virtually unlimited number of midi messages to a virtually unlimited number of devices simultaneously, from each footswitch or expression pedal. Send messages that the FCB 1010 is not able to manage, like system exclusive or channel pressure messages. Use simple but powerful programming features and a clearly laid out editor to define complex functions that would be impossible to handle for a FCB 1010.
Exploit the hardware
Make footswitches act like buttons, switches or multiple state switches. Decide if a message must be sent when a footswitch is pressed or released. Program the order and the timing of the messages.
Two modes of operation
Use a single FCB 1010 bank as the source for signals, then define up to 32768 patches and use FCBBooster's navigation mode to select them. Or use all ten FCB 1010 banks, program up to 10 patches and select them with the up/down switches on the pedalboard.
