    :confused: I do not understand MIDI at all. I received the Behringer V AMP2 as a gift. I purchased the Behringer FCB1010 MIDI FOOT CONTROLLER to switch between banks and presets. I also wanted to use the two expression pedals on the FCB1010 for wah wah and volume. I read the Owners Manuals four times and DO NOT GET IT. I am unable to program the foot controller to function with the V AMP 2.

    If anyone owns these products and has successfully got them to play nice with each other - please help me out.

    Ummm ... yeah ... it's called "RO"!!!
    The basics:
    1) You buy a DAW
    2) You read the WHOLE manual, cover to cover, several times.
    3) Play with the DAW. Record some stuff. Does it sound good when you play it back? No? Hmmm...better find out why. Yes? You're getting the hang of it.
    4) At any time during steps 1 through 3, or any time thereafter, if you have any questions, ask them on RO.
    The "Best Bang For The Buck DAWs" feature will be on RO soon, and that will give you an idea of the components that you will need to build the computer and of the other things you will need to get started. As far as physical assembly of the computer, it's actually pretty self-explainatory, and there are manuals that come with the components that walk you through it pretty thoroughly. The difficult part, which I quickly discovered, comes when there are problems getting it to load and run properly. However, one way or the other, someone will be able to help you get through it. If you stick to the components that will be in the "BBFTBDAWs" feature, you'll have very little problem. If you go out and buy a pre-configured computer, more than likely, it will NOT be optimized for DAW recording, and you WILL have problems.
    If you REALLY feel uncomfortable with building the puter yourself, some puter shops will assemble them for you for $50-100. You just bring them all of the components. However, if you build it yourself, you will gain a lot of valuable knowledge and will be in a better position to know what the problems are when they arise (AND THEY WILL).

    Thanks for the reply. I did not mean to include the two paragraphs related on DAW's which you replied to. They were supposed to have been deleted. I have now edited them out.

    I just need help with making the Behringer products work together with MIDI and knightfly already offered to review everything. I faxed him the Owners Manuals and emails I received from Behringer. We are supposed to talk later today.
