    Big upgrade?

    I made the same moves, from Ultra to II w MFC, (with an XL+ in there), and I’ve had the III for 1 1/2 years. You made a great call, ordering one at this low price point. There is just so much about the III, with the tone being #1, that I expect you’ll be floored. Enjoy!

    Midi to switch between on/off efx and scenes

    My mind fritzed. What I was trying to say is the MC-6 allowed sending a CC number along with a CC value. If the Pacer can handle sending both in the same message, you should be able to have a specific Scene attached to a given foot switch. Only the lower 6 switches on the Pacer look to me as...
