You've done what I didn't have the gut to do... I've always thought that the controller above the axefx would be very compact. Would you like to share some other details?
Also isn't it too tall to step on?
The MFC is mounted with 4 Large Temple Audio Mounting Plates.
The Lehle (my guitar volume pedal - between guitar and Axe-Fx) is also mounted with 2 Large Plates.
The Mission is mounted with 2 Medium Plates and connected directly to the MFC
The cables are all connected to Neutrik D-System connectors with the Temple Audio Micro- and Mini- Modul Plates from top to bottom:
1 - PowerCon (mainly for the Lehle) <blue>
2 - Guitar cable: Board -> Axe-Fx <red>
3 - XLR FasLink: MFC -> Axe-Fx <orange>
4 - Guitar cable: Guitar -> Board <black>
MFC Labels are from Stomplabel.de via G66.eu and KickTags from ZenRigs.
All connectors and plugs are Neutrik PX, XX and D-Norm.
Cables are all Sommer Cable:
- Colonel Incredible and The Spirit XXL for guitar
- Galileo 238 for TRS and XLR cables
The Stage 5 is great...but....no access to underneath hence..the duct tape under the right Exp Pedal.
(I have another Fractal pedal...but the misson had the On/Off so I can use it as a wah.
Well placed Tie Wraps hold the rest in place...lol...and a LOT of Industrial velcro
I don’t put labels on my MFC, as it’s still subject to change and I can memorize which is for what.
I always create preset for each song, and I practice 3 or 4 songs in a rehearsal in my band, so I need 4 Preset switches to
quickly change the presets.
Some songs need intelligent pitch shifters in different keys, so Scene switches are used for that application.
As I like to engage FXs impromptu, I made the remaining switches for instant access switches.
I love how MFC has so many switches – looks like controllers of Bradshaw systems I dreamed of!
The case is a stagg case with a 1cm wood plate screwed on the bottom of it. The MFC is screwed in (removed the bottom plate, screwed it into the case/wood then re-attached the unit, as are the mission peda's (for those I used bicycle chainlinks). The MFC feet are now on the bottom of the case.
Total costs for materials: Eur 55, which I think is a very good deal.
