    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...

    This post is mainly for live situations but feel free to add anything. What is your "go-to" way for getting from rhythm to a lead sound in a live setting? Coming from a Marshall with only a few pedals (Ibanez Tube , Delay) that I used before, I use that basic mindset for constructing my live...
