    New MFC coming?

    Do people think a new MFC version is on its way? It is out of stock in the store and I want to update my original MFC but holding off for a bit in case there is. I am hoping a version IV is coming with the Scene and Y lights, as per the FX8.

    LCD Display question.

    Is there a way to keep the FX8's LCD screen permanently on this view? It is irritating when it I switch in a new block and the display changes to show the parameters for that block. My presets are fairly complex and I need to see what I have available in each one.

    Looper bug for halfspeed with MFC?

    I have the latest firmware for both Axe FX and MFC. I am getting a bug with the looper mode where half speed is not working from the IA button but if I select it from the front panel the light on the MFC will light up (and turn off). Anyone else having this? I tried a full factory reset of...

    Modded Ernie Ball pedals with MFC101: help needed.

    I have a couple of Ernie Ball Volume pedals that I had a local tech replace the pot with a linear taper pot and put in a stereo jack socket (in the middle of the pedal panel). It hasn't quite worked and I need some help. The pedals still have the input, output and tuner sockets in there and...

    FX profiling?

    So.... I am wondering about the possibility for FX profiling. I have a particularly amazing sounding octave pedal- an Ibanez OT10 (I actually have 2 of them). The octaver effect in the Axe is ok but doesn't approach the balls to the ball nastiness of my Ibanez OT10's. Is there any...

    Looper 1/2 speed request

    Cliff, Is there any way we can get a 1/2speed function into the looper? I currently still have to drag an external looper (Echoplex) around simply to have this functionality. 1/2 speed and reverse together allow me to be very expressive with looping and I can't live without the 1/2 speed. A...

    Axe Edit wish.

    Question regarding Axe mode config: modulation on/off switch

    UK guys: How about a Zilla FRFR Cab/Wedge.

    Hi guys, I have been speaking to Paul at Zilla cabs about him building an alternative to the Atomic passive cabs. He is not geared up for active cabs so this will be a passive cab. My plan is to get a Matrix XT800 amp and have a pair of wedges or cabs (not decided yet). 12" full range...
