    It seems pretty clear that the MFC won't play nicely with the AXE-FX III without some in-depth programming but what about the possibility of the FC series working with the AXE-FX II? For those of us who have a III but kept the II, it would be nice to have one controller rule all and that the designers considered this backward compatibility.

    I'm pretty sure they won't work, my Ferengi friend.

    They won't because they use only FASlink 2 protocol. They are not midi controllers, and all the "brains" are coming from the Axe Fx III.

    No. The FC is a new design concept and cannot work on the older Axe design. Not everything can be backwards compatible and be new at the same time unfortunately.
