View Full Version : Bizarre onstage problem
08-01-2005, 06:53 PM
Doing a wedding last night, and stepped on the ol' FCB-1010, bank 0, patch 1. This should call up 1-1 on the Pro, but oh no, nothing as nice as that, she jumped to patch 21-1, some heavy metal screamin' ott gain driven patch. So I thought, quick, let's fix it, I'll step on pedal 2, which got me 21-2 ...
First thought was that it must be the FCB-1010, as it's the cheapest bit of kit. So in between songs I did a quick reset of it - no luck. Eyeing up the GT-Pro suspiciously as it's yellow LCD laughed at my attempts to solve the problem, I killed the Pro, and turned it back on. Problem sorted, back to 1-1, 1-2, etc.

That is weird. You didn't go into manual mode or anything where you would have changed banks by mistake without knowing?

Nope, I was just playing away, minding my own business. Hadn't touched the footboard, or amp in 2/3 songs. Even inspecting it while the problem had occured suggested nothing had changed. It was just selecting the wrong patches.
Either way, it's something to be wary of. I hope it doesn't happen to anyone else on stage, but it would be interesting to see if anyone else has had the same issues.

I have never had that problem on stage, er um, mostly, because I've never played guitar on stage. 8O
So, it sounds like you found yourself in a time and place where the Pro was adding 20 to the bank you thought it should be going to, right?
Probly not helpful, but the first thing I thought of was the bank-limit control; generally, this lets you set the range of banks within which the Pro can be externally switched. However, it's only describeed in the FC-200 section, p.81, so it's probly not relevant. Perhaps your foot controller has this? Wouldn't necessarily prevent the problem, but might mask it sufficiently....
