Trigger akai mpx8 with foot controller

Hey, I'm a guitar player and I want to be able to trigger our samples with a foot controller. I have an akai mpx8 and I saw a video explaining how to set it up with a behringer fcb1010 but now I can't find it.

Anyone know how to do this?

Hi there, I think I can help you a little.

The MPX8 recieves his midi on midi channel 10.
And it will only receive note on/off messages.
Well I've figured it out, the mid MPX8 information according to the corresponding note numbers.

The most important thing to know is:

mid 000 = note: C -1 (C minus one) , so: mid 000 does not respond to note number C 0
You can check the notenumbers by downloading midi ox and setup the MPX8 as standard midi device.
by pressing the pads on the MPX8 the notenumbers will come up in the midimonitor.

Well I don't own the Behringer FCB1010 But I think you have to search in the manual how you can setup a patch where you can assign note number parameters.
to a pedal to trigger the samples. (I use a Roland FC300 to do the same thing my MPX8 came in today.)

Good luck!!

My bad for my English, I'm not good at it
