Are there other options to the MFC?


Are there cheaper alternatives. I'm really just looking for something where I could switch from clean to dirty with a switch?

if you need just 2 sounds you can use a simple footswitch. you can set it to toggle between two presets or activate drive pedal or change amp XY.

You could do it with a single switch. However, you could buy an expression pedal, like a Mission, that comes with a switch as well, then you've got a wah and volume pedal etc., and the switch can control your drive/fuzz on/off (or Amp X/Y is that's how ya git yer dirt).


You can use a single foot-switch and use the "Pedal" jack on the back of the Axe-FX II/XL. Press the I/O button on the front of the Axe-FX and go to the "PEDAL" page. There you can set the "PEDAL TYPE" to CONTINUOUS, LATCHING or MOMENTARY. You probably want LATCHING (like a toggle switch). Plug your switch into the Pedal jack. Then assign the Onboard Pedal Jack to one of the 12 External controllers and assign that controller to the effect, X/Y Switch or whatever things you want to control.
