    New Axe owner 4th day of the Axe-Fx III - a little remorse in my journey

    first, I have to say that the AF3 is an awesome unit and I love almost everything about it. The only thing that is causing me to be unhappy is the foot controller options while waiting for the readily available status of the FC12. Not having the FC12 is really a burden on me on the 4th day of...

    First Time Updating MFC-101 FW Results in Error 17

    Hey everyone - A few years back, I had bought the MFC-101(mk3) to basically convince myself that I was committed to getting the Axe FX, and this year during the Black Friday sale, I finally splurged and picked up the 3. So obviously my goal is to get the MFC-101 working as a generic MIDI...

    Released version 8.5 today

    Minor changes for MAC OS X Mojave. Better password handling. Support for Oracle Java 11. UPDATE: I've discovered that the "Virtual MFC-101" feature of MFC-Edit does not work with Java version 11 because Oracle, in their infinite "wisdom", have JavaFx libraries breaking the Virtual MFC-101...

    XLR Connector for FASLINK 2?

    Now that I have my Axe-FX III I'll need to rework my venerable Vafam patch panel to accept one of the FC foot controllers. So, out with the Ethercon connector for the MFC-101 and in with the...the...XLR? Is FASLINK 2 still using a standard XLR connector? If I had to bet money, I would say yes...

    MFC 101: will it be discontinued AND buying used vs new/direct?

    I plan to get the MFC-101 mkIII in 2-6 months... Should I be concerned about the MFC getting discontinued within this time frame? Also, I'm located in Canada, and when searching for the MFC used, it is listed higher than direct from FAS. What is up with that? Reverb and Ebay. Not much...

    MFC-Edit with Axe-Fx III

    Here's an addendum if you're planning to use your MFC-101 with the Axe-Fx III while waiting for for the FC-6 and FC-12 to become available. I'm sure that there is more to say but there are some things to keep in mind and some additional features on MFC-Edit 8.0 to ease programming the MFC-101...

    Plans to update the MFC-101?

    Q1: Is it even possible for the software in the MFC-101 to be updated so it works in the manner we are all accustomed to with the Axe FXII, but with the Axe FXIII? Q2: Does Fractal Audio have any plans to update the MFC-101 so it works with the AXE FXIII in the manner we are all use to? Q3...

    Amateur MFC-101, MK. III Question

    Hey there everyone, I just recently got my hands on an Axe-Fx II XL+ unit, as well as the MFC-101, and have been really stoked on it! That being said, I'm still quite uncertain of how to fully use it... Figured I would hop on here to get some answers. My biggest question right now comes...

    Version 7.2 released over the weekend

    The most obvious change is doubling the size of the Virtual MFC-101 window - it was really small on QHD 11-inch monitors. Enhanced debugging and diagnostics to aid people having problems getting their MFC-101/Computer transmissions to work reliably.

    Bug? Value knob behaviour with MFC connected

    When I go through my presets on Axe-FX II with the big [value] knop it is 1 click for one preset up or down. BUT: as soon as I connect my MFC-101 (expansion) the result of turning the [value] knob is either random or none. And when I dissconnect the MFC again all is fine again. Anybody have...

    Need help with set lists

    Folks - I'm a somewhat seasoned (5 yrs) Axe II user, but I have never fiddled much with the MFC-101. My current approach is that I do a preset for EACH song. Most have at least two scenes, assuming I have a solo. More scenes if there is more complexity to the song. At present, the band is at...

    Trouble with tuner and updating

    Hey guys, I just got all of this stuff, so I'm sorry if this is redundant. Google didn't answer any of my questions. So, I need the tuner to display on the MFC-101(MK1). I am using an Axe Fx II and running a CAT5 cable between the two. I tried factory resetting the MFC via Fractal Bot but that...

    MFC-101 odd noise when connected via midi to AXE-FX Ultra

    Anyone ran across an issue when connecting the MFC-101 to an AXE-FX Ultra (older unit, not the FX II) using the standard midi connection where you hear a volume swell about every 60 secs? It seems to coincide with line frequency, in terms of frequency, but I don't think it's picking up a stray...

    Scene switching live

    I am trying to streamline the process of scene switching live, and wondering if folks have suggestions to that end. Under my current setup, I use song mode with a bank size of 5 and mostly switch presets to change sounds within songs. For some presets, I use scenes inside of songs and make...

    Bug? MFC-101 Mk III - display freezing

    I have an Axe-Fx II (original) and MFC-101 Mk III (firmware version 3.08). They are conncected through FASLINK using an XA-1. Don't know if it is just a coincidence, but since updating my Axe-Fx II to Quantum 4.00 I had the display of the MFC freezing two or three times. While the switches of...

    MFC Setup & organization suggestions

    So I'm helping a friend get set up with an XL+ and a MFC 101 Mk III. He's a very good musician but not too tech savvy. He's given me a list of amps & effects he'd like, and its pretty easy to get in the ballpark with some patches. The challenge for me is the MFC config. I'm thinking of giving...

    Adding a GCPro along side MFC-101

    I dug out my old Ground Control Pro and hoping to use it right along side my MFC-101 (MK3) either to be a dedicated looper control or to change scenes. Has anybody done this??? I went midi outto the AXE FX II XL and could send some messages to the Axe but... can I go midi out from the GCP into...

    Axe-Fx II XL+ as Teleprompter

    MFC-101-W (Wide)

    I have BIG feet - I don't fall over often. However, they are a hindrance when using the MFC-101 live and performing multiple guitar parts at the same time. Tap-dancing on the switches is less than precise enough for a flawless performance. I always wished for an MFC-101-W (Wide) but since it...
