It can send CC's along with PC's, but it can't send on/off CC's in a "momentary" fashion. Therefore, you can't use CC's to control the basic EDP functions with the FCB1010.

kim, i may be wrong here but i believe the 1010 can be set to send cc's automatically once a preset is chosen just like with notes. i remember seeing that.

How are people programming the All Access? Are you using
Control Numbers via Instant Access switches? Or are you using
Note ON/OFF via the Custom settings for presets?

I'm pretty sure the All Access has the flexibility to be set up to
use either. The FCB1010 can only control the echoplex using notes.
(sorry I don't use an All Access so I don't know the programming

With the Echoplexes set to 'Controlsource=CNTR' I have been
using the Instant Access switches to trigger various functions.

Record - This works but sometimes when I press the button it
starts recording a clears right away. A second press gets it
recording properly and I can loop.

I think I see your problem. The Echoplex wants to see a midi
command for both the pressing of the button AND the release of the
button. This is how it can tell if you are doing a short press or
a long press. It sounds like your controller is not sending the
"off" message when you release the button.

If you are using Notes, this means the midi controller sends a
NoteOn message when you press the button, and the corresponding
NoteOff message when you release the button. (like the way a midi
keyboard would do it.)

If you are using Continuous Controller messages, the controller
should send the appropriate controller number with a positive
value (like 64 or something) when you press the button. Then when
you release the button, it should send the same controller with
value 0.

Usually this means programming the midi controller to treat its
buttons as Momentary. It sounds like you might have the in
Latching mode. (where the first press sends the On, and the second
press sends the off)

Can one replicate the Echoplex pedalboard function of holding
down the record button and clearing the loop with the All
Access via midi?

yes, definitely! that's the idea of using the on/off concept.
That's the only way with midi to communicate that you are holding
a button down (sustained) or releasing it quickly. This allows the
Echoplex to get more functions out of less buttons. Otherwise
there would have to be lots of extra buttons to control even the
basic features of the echoplex, which would be awkward to use and
take up too much space.

Hope this helps,
