    My setup is MFC-101 + Axe FX III + Yamaha MD-BT01. I use BandHelper/SetListMaker to switch presets per song. This is the connection configuration.

    This allows me to send a midi program change via bluetooth to both the MFC and Axe FX at the same time, works great. The problem I'm having is I cant seem to send midi program changes above 127 from BandHelper/SetListMaker when connected in this manner. If I connect the Yamaha MD-BT01 to just the IN and OUT of the Axe FX it works fine, I am able to access presets above 127.

    Seems to be an issue in the MFC that it doesn't understand the Bank MSB number I'm sending to its Input and doesn't send it out. I cant see anything in MFC settings that would cause this? Anyone have any ideas?

    Try adding MidiOx in the path to verify Bank change messages are being sent. I'm thinking a midi merge might be needed. Perhaps something like this?

    [ MFC-101 OUT ]-->--+-->--[ IN AxeFx III ]
    [ MD-BT01 OUT ]-->--^

    [ AxeFx III OUT ]-->--[ IN MFC-101 ]
