FCB/UnO Control Center lets you manage setups for the original FCB1010 and for the "UnO equipped" FCB1010. (see www.fcb1010.eu to learn about UnO) Both a native Mac version and a native Windows version are available. The editor design focuses on usability. It hides all of the technical details and lets you build your setup in an intuitive way. At all time you can review the programmed MIDI commands, and after downloading your setup the MIDI monitor allows you to compare what you programmed with the actual MIDI output of your FCB1010 in order to verify your downloaded setup.Show me!
Today many FCB1010 users rely on this editor, and love it.
Being around for many years the bugs have left the building long time ago.
A free demo version allows you to verify MIDI communication with your hardware.
24 Euro is money well spent, when it allows you to focus on playing music!
Right after payment a personal license key will be emailed to your PayPal address. If you don't receive it within a few hours after payment, check your email spam folder!
This can happen when your email provider blacklists our mail server. Just send us an email (contact info below) and we will forward the license data once more. Please be aware that we can follow up our mailbox after working hours only (Belgium time), so do not expect an immediate response. If you did not receive a reply after 24 hours, our reply must have been blocked too. Contact us again and we will keep trying using different sender email addresses until we get through.
MAKE SURE TO SAVE A COPY OR A PRINTOUT of your license data. When you reinstall your computer you will need your license key backup to register the editor again. We do not keep track of license keys, so we can't recover a license key for you.
Yes. You can reuse the same license data on up to 3 personal computers, Windows and Mac.
No. Your license is personal and cannot be transferred to someone else.
If you bought a license before September 2019, it will not work for version 2.x of our software. If you want to upgrade your software to the latest version you will need to buy a new license. We have deliberately kept the license price as low as it has been for the past 12 years, in order to make the upgrade to v.2 painless
If you want to keep using your v.1 license on a new computer,
the old installers can still be downloaded here :
In 2024 (= 12 years after its release, and 5 years after the end-of-life announcement) the license server for the v.1 software will be taken offline, and it will no longer be possible to register new installations of this software.
Now that's a good question. It is indeed a known issue that many MIDI-USB interfaces (especially the cheaper Chinese ones without specific driver) are not capable of transferring the large patchdump SysEx messages of the FCB1010. Therefore TRY BEFORE YOU BUY! The trial version of ControlCenter allows you to establish a connection with the FCB1010 and upload its setup to your computer. When that works correctly, patchdumps will also work with your interface.
Have a look in the Databases section of the FCB1010-UnO user group It contains a database with user feedback about which interfaces do work for FCB1010 patchdumps and wich don't.
Scroll down a little more. On the bottom of this page you will find the download link. Or here.

As much as we hate to be the RTFM guy, downloading the manual below is still the best way to find out about all possibilities and to get fully up and running in no time.
Talking about manuals: a big thanks to Michael Wolter for spontaneously offering us a German translation!
If you still have questions after reading the FAQ above and the manual, please visit one of the FCB1010 user groups. That's the best place to meet
other musicians who might use the same gear as you and have useful tips on how to program the FCB1010.
