    SOLVED: Lights not lighting up when changing presets. MIDI controller only.

    I finally figured it out. On the IA Switches Tab, the GBL column needed to be set to "no" instead of "yes."

    Does the MFC do this? Bank down or up scrolls through presets

    You can also name your presets to match the name of your midi device presets.

    SOLVED: Lights not lighting up when changing presets. MIDI controller only.

    Yeah, all of the effects are in the correct state. The state is loaded with the Helix preset, not sent from the MFC upon preset change. The lights were working properly before. Im not sure what I changed.

    New Product Announcement! MFC-EDIT

    I hear the version 6.0 software will make it wireless, waterproof, and able to take verbal commands. "Hey MFC, set switch 1 to MIDI channel 3 with CC# 82."

    SOLVED: Lights not lighting up when changing presets. MIDI controller only.

    I use the MFC-101 exclusively as a MIDI controller. Having just updated the software on the MFC as well as on my effects processor, I changed some of the settings and now the appropriate lights don't light up when I change presets. Whenever I push a switch, it stays lit when I change presets...

    Does the MFC do this? Bank down or up scrolls through presets

    The MFC can scroll through more presets than that. My MFC is used strictly as a MIDI controller for the Line 6 Helix. I use the up/down buttons to scroll through the Helix' 128 presets… :) If I wanted to go crazy I could assign 2 of the numbered switches to bank up and down. Then I would have 8...

    Separate MIDI Program Change for IA Sw 17 per preset?

    I want to be able to use it within a song, after the Preset is loaded. Is there a table somewhere of how to program custom midi messages, especially custom CC#/values?

    MFC-Edit 5.3 Update Not Installing

    Hi, I just opened MFC-Edit to work on my setup and it prompted me to update the software to 5.3. When asked if I wanted to update I clicked "Yes", it then downloaded, asked for the administrator password, closed the 5.2 version, I saw the mfc-edit.dmg drive appear on my desktop and then...

    Separate MIDI Program Change for IA Sw 17 per preset?

    Hi all, I'm using the MFC101 as a MIDI controller exclusively. it it possible to either have Instant Access Switch 17 send a different Program Change Message for each preset or have External Switch 4 do it (I don't think the External Switches can do PC…)? On my H9 I'm wanting IA Switch 17 to...

    Change presets on external MIDI device?

    Found the answer after reading through the Axe-Edit manual (imagine that!). Unfortunately you can't set an arbitrary number of switches to behave in this manner but you can do up to two sets of 5. Heres how to do it for any that need this feature. On page 36 of the Axe-Edit manual: and...

    CC# and Value instead of Program Change?

    Hi all. I use the MFC mk3 as a midi controller exclusively. Is it possible to send a CC# and value instead of a program change when you change presets using the "Up" and "Down" buttons? The amp I'm using does not use PC messages and I'd like to use the "Up" and "Down" buttons to change settings...

    I use my MFC purely as a MIDI controller to control a Line 6 Helix and an Eventide H9. I'd like to use the switches on the top 2 rows (with the colored labels) to change between presets on the H9. The other switches are IA switches. I use the up/down buttons on the right to change presets on the...

    Wish Ability to disable and/or reassign the reveal button

    I second this wish. I use the MFC as purely a midi pedal (I don't own an Axe FX). My understanding is that while using only midi, the "Reveal" button can not be used for anything. Is this correct?

    IA Switches Initial State

    I use the "Up" and "Down" buttons to change presets, the MFC is set so that all the buttons are IA switches. The edit button does not blink when I step on an IA switch, it just turns the effect on or off.

    IA Switches Initial State

    Hi, tldr: lights don't change state when changing presets (MIDI, no Axe-FX). I have just started reprogramming my MFC-101 for controlling midi gear (I don't own an Axe FX) and can't get the Initial state of the switches to be "on" with the led lit up. I'm using MFC-Edit and regardless of how I...

    Anyone using MFC 101 MK III as a midi controller

    I'm using it purely as a midi pedal to control my Pod HD Pro, TC Electronic G-Major 2, TC Nova Drive, and Rocktron Patchmate Loop 8 (Carl Martin Comp and TS9). I've got it set up like a big stomp box (17 stomps) and use the Up and Down buttons to change presets. The "Tap" button controls the...

    MFC to Control Tempo on External MIDI Enabled Delay Pedals

    I've got it controlling the tap tempo on both my Pod HD Pro and my TC Electronic G-Major 2. I assigned IA 5 to tap and then, using MFC-Edit, assigned ch 1 midi to the Pod and ch 2 to the TC.

    Can a Preset Change Turn a pedal off?

    Thanks for the help. I realized (after much head scratching) That my Pod HD Pro will toggle a preset on or off regardless of the value sent to it (0-127). Unlike typical midi gear which has 0 = Off and 127 = On (or 0-63 = Off, 64-127 =On), it always toggles no matter what is sent to it. I can't...

    Can a Preset Change Turn a pedal off?

    I've got a TC Electronics Nova Drive. I can control it fine via the MFC but when I change presets it remains on. I'd like it to turn off (disable the OD or Dist) when I change to another preset.

    Can a Preset Change Turn a pedal off?

    Hey guys, is there a way, when I change a preset, to have the new preset turn on some effects and off others? I assume there is but can't quite figure it out. I don't own an axe FX and am using the MFC to control MIDI gear. I know that on the "Presets & Ex. Devs" page in MFC-Edit you can have...

    UP/Down Switches and program changes?

    It's possible theres another way but for me it wouldn't change programs until I specified. My presets are 1:1 so theres no funky skipping around or anything. Thank you for your help though. I really appreciate your time.

    UP/Down Switches and program changes?

    ANSWER: Ok, I figured it out. Using MFC-Edit, On the Presets & Ext. Devs tab, for each preset you have to select the Midi Channel that your device is on and then put the Program Change Number that you want to send when the preset loads.

    UP/Down Switches and program changes?

Volume is set for expression pedal 1 in the...
