VA FAQ

What do I need for this setup?
A Behringer V-Amp Series processor (V-Amp Pro, V-Amp 3, V-Amp 2, and V-Ampire), a Behringer FCB1010, and one or two MIDI cables depending on your preferred mode of operation.

What do you mean "one or two MIDI cables depending on your preferred mode of operation"?
You may operate this in 1-cable mode, but EF mode is not functional.  In two-cable mode EF mode is functional with effect state reflected on pedal LEDs.

Even though I have both MIDI cables connected, when I turn on my V-Amp series processor & EurekaPROM-enabled FCB1010 two-cable mode isn't detected.
The EurekaPROM-enabled FCB1010 boots faster than the V-Amp processor, so if you turn them on simultaneously the EurekaPROM won't detect the return MIDI cable. The solution is to turn on the V-Amp processor first and let it finish booting before you turn on the EurekaPROM-enabled FCB1010.
