I have found out the problem!
I had left active the FCB1010 "Tap Tempo" function and so apparently at each press of a switch it was sending different commands.
Now it works all perfect!
But at least I know that the Octatrack can solo a track via midi command. And this is strange, because with the CC suggested in the OT manual, the solo doesn't work...

Did you run the memory initialization routine?
From the UNO manual:
Switch off the board, and keep the 1 and 9 keys pressed while switching it on again.On 02/09/13, Sergio Girardi<firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:
Keep the 2 switches pressed until the display turns black. After releasing the 2 switches,
a countdown from 9 to 0 starts. After that, the board is ready to use.
I am programming the FCB1010 with UnO Chip to control the Octatrack.
I have a MidiPal from Mutable Instruments with which I can see that each switch sends other midi info (which I ignore what) other than the note on command (which is the only one which I am aware to have activated).
The Uno Manual and the original one have some lacks in some steps of the setup but I have tried many things and I still have for example a strange problem with Switch 7, it send a command which soloes the active track of the Octatrack, even if it is programmed just to send a command to stop the sequencer. No way.
I tried to understand how to reset the pedal but I could not find a way.
