    i just checked the store and I couldn’t find the MFC - I’m finally at the point where I want to buy one but I can’t seem to find it on the store or anywhere reasonable. Thoughts?

    Discontinued, but plentiful of used ones floating around.

    Seriously? Discontinued? I just got my Axe FX II XL+ just a few months ago and was definitely planning on getting the MFC. They're not that easy to find used over here in Europe and often cost more than they did on g66.eu.

    I'll be selling mine when the new Fractal controllers come out for the Axe3. And I would imagine there will be a lot of other MFC owners with Axe3s doing the same, so hopefully you will be able to find a good second hand deal.

    Odd that its no longer for sale when the XL+ still is. I reckon that it was never produced in the same number as the unit it was supposed to control. I'm glad I got mine at the same time as I did with my XL+. Which significantly added to the bill, but what's the point of ordering a killer unit like the XL+ without its tailor made controller? And I'm glad that I did because making both of them work together was sometimes hard enough already. I'd hate having to add the additional stress of using a different controller to the mix.

    I simply couldn't afford buying both at the same time. It IS a lot of money for a foot controller, however great it is.

    Definitely not cheap, but also not the most expensive either. Lots of guys have opted for the cheaper options (BOSS etc) and have good results with those. Might be worth getting a cheaper alternative for now and then waiting for a good second hand deal?

    I'll probably do that. Fortunately I am not in a hurry since I don't play live. I'll get the MFC eventually.

    In that case, you probably don't need the extra functionality that the MFC offers over a general MIDI controller (nice to have but not essential). I play live and depend on that stuff, but when at home I literally only care about being able to change scenes/presets with my foot and that's about it.

    The MFC might be slight overkill for home use alone, but if you do see a good deal on an MFC then it is very much worth it.

    Looks like that at first, but if you click "buy now" it says not available.

    You're right, otherwise send Sussi an email. She always answers immediately, then I'm still a bit lucky because my MFC 101 is 4 months old. The MFC can not include all functions such as preset names and tuner with Axe III, you also need to buy another controller for this.

    Its not hard to setup other types of controllers but it depends what you want out of it. The more options the more effort.

    The All Access from Rocktron is a very good controller. Don’t buy the LTD version, they have an issue with the lcd screen.

    It's out of stock, but we're not sure there's enough demand to sustain another full run.

    I was ready to buy a new one. Ended up buying a used one on Reverb. Ok with me - I got a great deal on a Mark III, but it was disappointing to see them unavailable when I just bought my new Axe FX less than a year ago.

    There will likely be a number of excellent condition used units available in a month or two, including my MFC-101 Mk 1!
