Capture of the stream coming from my FCB1010 with the UNO2 EPROM and a real simple Katana control script from groups.io site.

Midi Monitor of PC editor of the UNO2 EPROM (FCB1010).  Things appear to be fine in the PC Editor monitor but what is the MIDIOX showing is actually happening.

There is a lot of program changes going on in a very short amount of time.
That data going into the Katana would make it go crazy.
Like there is a midi feedback loop happening.

Have you installed the correct "midi Bridge" firmware into the MIDX-20 for the Katana Mkii?

That is direct out the FCB1010.  The top picture is the MIDIOX capture of midi data after I pressed one pedal and moved the expression pedal and it it just continued as if in a loop.

The bottom picture is me pressing each of the FCB1010 pedals one at a time 1-10 and moving the expression pedal.  No looping.

Is the midi capture with the MIDIOX showing what is actually the output of the FCB1010.

I started this investigation because the Pedal 1 and 2 were not working. Is the problem with the UNO2 EPROM?

How is the FCB1010 connected, try just the midi out into the MIDX-20.

Make sure the MIDX-20 has the correct "midi bridge" firmware loaded.

Connections: For the midi capture. I used midi to USB into my laptop.

For Katana connection: Midi din connector from FCB1010 to MIDX-20 then "Lower" USB out of MIDX-20 to USB input of Katana.

The correct midi bridge is installed. I checked that last night.

Not sure how to capture what is being sent from the MIDX-20... need to track down a USB-A to USB-A to do that. Will try it though.

There's filtering possibilities in the MIDX. Could you try to filter away PC messages, preventing them to pass through, just to see if there's spurious PC messing things up.
But I got more gear than I need...and I like it!
