    MFC-101 New Firmware Version 2.15

    MFC-101 New Firmware Version 2.15

    IA 15 doesn't respond to wha on off. It does turn on/ with "FX byp' on the front panel of the Axe. The external footcontroller functions too then. The MFC on/ off doesn't. IA set to Wha1 Same on the delay1 which I put under IA12. Not responding to the MFC on/off.

    MFC-101 New Firmware Version 2.15

    Yes FW 9 IA ok will correct them but think that should have been avoided. Change in sound I can understand. The preset changes don't go smoothly. There's a delay and at times they go back to the one that I came from. eg. When going from 2 to 3 the preset change is delayed or doesn't make it.
