    Have a gig tomorrow. MFC 101 not working. Help!

    I just sold my MFC 101 thru Reverb (to fund my Axe3:)). Was working fine for me, but buyer (who has a pro gig tomorrow) says when he connected it via ethernet and it says "axe fx name timeout!". Do you have any idea why? Thanks so much.

    Need XA-1 Adapter for Axe-Fx II - Any ideas where to find one?

    Need to find an XA-1 Faslink Adapter. Anyone know where I can buy one? Been using an ethernet cable for years, so it was never an issue before. However, I want to switch to FASLINK now, and discovered it is no longer available. Google was no help, as it appears there is no stock of new ones...

    Bug? Preset lost!

    I accidentally unplugged my MFC 101 midi cable cleaning my studio today and plugged it right back in to find that the preset I was working on (preset #407) was replaced with factory preset #141 "Introspection". Rebooted with and without the mfc101 plugged in and nothing, I tried to reverting on...

    AXE FX II wireless to MFC101?

    How to assign non-consecutive presets to switches 1 to 5?

    Hi all, I've been looking for this for a while and can't find it... What am I doing wrong? Can this be done? Say you wanna program preset 34 on IA01 for clean and preset 247 on IA02 as your distortion. Super simple setup. Every single video I see talks about changing effects on IA buttons but no...

    For some reason, when I go calibrate the pedal it only goes up to level 2 or 3 min & maximum despite the pedal being all the way up/down. I know the pedal is in perfect working condition cause when used as just a volume pedal it is consistent. It just doesn't want ro calibrate. I've tried a...

    MIDI Phantom Power and FASLink

    Hey guys, I'm hoping someone here can shed some light on this for me. I've had an XL+ for a couple of years and I've been using an older DMC Ground Control board to control it. That takes a 7-pin MIDI cable and I plug in the power block for it into the back of the AxeFX to provide phantom...

    MFC-101 no longer available?

    Hello, i just visited the Fractal Shop and the G66 Shop and in both the MFC is not available anymore. Is this because the new tariffs are hitting imports from china right now, or has this other reasons? I hope the MFC will soon be available again :)

    What am I doing Wrong??

    I got that "Axe FX Name Timeout" thing on the MFC-101 Mk3. So I rushed back and turned the Axe FX off, but then none of my switches on the MFC would do anything. It looked normal, but nothing changed when I'd press a switch. I'm using Faslink with an Axe FX II XL+. XLR from Faslink jack on the...

    Does the MFC 101 come with a connection cable? I just opened the box and there is just the adaptor with it. Was i supposed to order the cable separate? And if so what is the best cable to use? Not sure if they forgot to put in box.

    Review of Ultra + MFC to the AX8 Transition

    So, I've now had the AX8 for about 60 days now. The best way I can describe moving from the Ultra (which I absolutely loved) to the AX8, is like this: Imagine watching TV on an old tube TV from 1984, and then bypassing SD, HD, and skipping to 4K HD. The resolution and clarity in the sound &...

    Hi guys, i wish the Ax8 could be able to communicate bidirectional with the MFC 101. The MFC can control the AX8 over midi but it don't communicate the state of the stompboxes in presets or scenes. Some of us use an external midi Controller to have more possibilities with the AX8, it will be...
