Great, Limitless but also complex
xbendorx, 04.11.2019
I definitely recommend this product. It is insanely flexibility (basically can do everything) and has great value for money.
There are a few things, however, which I think the average user should be aware of:
1. This devices has no graphical user interface.
2. This device has hardly any limitation as to what you can make each key press do.
3. The combined conclusion from the above two bullets is: you need to actually program the thing - using it's hardware to do so. Remember setting the time in your old watch, where you need to press and hold several buttons in a specific order to get things right? so just like that, but with far more options, and with many more buttons.
I had to watch a 45min YouTube video that explains how to program the thing. As the instruction manual is simply not up-to-par, I recommend you do the same :
. After you learned the principals, it's quite easy to get going with, and the added value of this extreme flexibility is very much present. You can literally program any switch to shoot any MIDI signal(s) of many types and on many channels. I can't imagine something it can't do.

Also, and regardless, my specific unit produces a certain "hum" when it is on. Not a deal breaker, but could be better off without it. Might be a grounding issue.

Bottom line:
- HUGE value for money. You can do SO MUCH with it...
- VERY LONG learning curve. Expect to spend at least a few hours until you get the hang of it. I am a professional programmer with embedded systems experience and it took me about 4 hours to get it right.

A solid device, a steep learning curve
OrYa, 05.07.2020
Let me start with saying that Thomann's service and handling was flawless and I got my order in a perfect condition.
As for the FCB1010 itself - make sure you know what you're getting into before you get it. It is a very popular product that has huge dedicated forums with thousands of members, talking about it, fixing, optimizing, modding etc.
The build quality is exceptional. Its heavy duty (literally, it has its weight...) and as such feels solid and appropriate for handling a live performance on stage as well as anything you throw at it at home.
The biggest con is in its lack of a usb interface, meaning you have to use a midi-to-usb cable if you need that functionality, which was my main use case. Although it is possible to use 3rd party software to edit, upload and download configurations to the FCB1010, the 'official' configuration method is done within the device itself, and it takes time to figure out, especially if you've never worked with midi codes before. For me the best way to learn was watching an hour long youtube video explaining and demoing every setting, which just emphasizes how feature rich this thing is :)

Really tough and flexible floor controller
Howard, 18.02.2021
I bought this after having been let down by an eBayer over the purchase of an iRig controller for Amplitube 5 on my PC. There are some things that this cannot do with Amplitube, I still haven't got the looper working for example. I am controlling patch selection, stomps on and off, volume and wah. Download a suitable free utility to programme sysex files from your PC and this becomes an easy to configure work horse. I haven't yet configured it for BIAS FX2, but I am certain that this will be quite doable.
Like: It has weapons' grade construction - built like the proverbial tank. 100 presets. Really responsive expression pedals.
Meh: Takes a while to get your head around programming it, much easier with the mountain utilities app.
Dislike: None really, at this price it really is astonishing value. If it is your thing, upgrading the firmware can only be done by changing the chip. A UNO chip is less than €15, so fill your boots.
Overall, really enjoying using it. I have friend who is software engineer and electronics whizz who had bought one to try to turn it into a keyboard note controller. We'll see how that goes. It would be brilliant to be able to play strings with my feet too.

Unbeatable Value for Money. Period. You may need some time to get used to it
PaulPp, 01.12.2020
I own the FCB 1010 for several months now, and I use it to control my DAW in which I load many things. I run several instances of vst amps and a guitar to midi. It can handle perfectly many things and I have never had any problems on rehearsals or on live stages handling a violin, an el. guitar and a vst keys organ triggered by guitar to midi.

I have to say that handling this device requires somewhat deep knowledge of how midi and your DAW works. You have to figure out what you need precisely and which is the best way to do it, but I think the same applies to all the midi controllers of this type. Also, when you press 1 the light is lid and when you press 2 only the second light is lid, while 1 is not, which for me is not a problem. You can solve this with the installation of the UNO chip, which I don't have, so I don't have experience on that. I strongly recommend using FCB 1010 along with a software fcb1010 manager. The pedals feel a little cheap, but in general FCB1010 is built to last.
