  1. ALL TOO EASY 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Feb 2017

    I've been using the Behringer FCB1010 for the last couple of years which is a real pain to program, so after 5 minutes with the MFC and everything set up it was just too easy. Only had this for a few days but absolutely loving it already!!


  2. Almost Great 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Feb 2017

    After using the Axe-FX for the last couple of years, and now ramping up 150+ cover songs for a new gig, I took the plunge on the MFC. The Rocktron AllAccess was a formidable unit, but the lack of an editor and instant IA integration made for cumbersome workflow (and sore fingers!)
    As a neat 'drop in' - the MFC is almost identical in dimension to the AllAccess. This means the six-wide footswitch layout is equally spaced, however the switches themselves are much more sensitive, and without a positive, and somewhat resistant activation 'click'. Practically, this means I can't rest my foot on the switch ready for action, and worse it means I'm prone to 'touching' another switch and activating an enexpected change.
    Programming workflow was a big decision point - to be able to catalog all my presets into songs, and then arrange these for each gig in a set list was going to be a big time saver. A couple of issues here. First, for the editor, I have to use midi which means disconnecting the mavlink, connecting midi cables, changing settings on both units and most importantly connecting local power to the MFC (since the mavlink is now disconnected). Sounds like a minor beef, but it really is quite a procedure, especially going back the other way, at the risk of potentially damaging power duplication. Already came unstuck at rehearsal forgetting the mode change at both ends. A USB port or simply Comms via mavlink would be a wecome improvement!!
    The song storage capacity. I have capacity for over 300 presets (ample), and 10 sets of 50 songs (ample) but only 100 songs (huh??) Sounds a lot but I have over 200 so far and more to come, and the sheer length of that list means I really want to have a named preset for each one so I can just step through scenes for each song. Again sounds easy to just use Preset mode, but now I can't set up set lists for each show.
    Finally - and I haven't tried yet - I get the impression I can only use IAs for internal or external midi commands - not both. So if I'm using scenes for each song section, then can I not command an external amp channel change at the same time? Yet to experiment with that.
    None of these are major issues, more annoyances, and still a better solution than I had. They just seem fundamental though. There may well be workarounds, and I may well have missed something, so I'm open to correction!
    Many things to love about the MFC hence 4 stars. If I'm on the money, shame, coz it's almost a perfect solution.


  3. BEST possible way to control the AxeFxII 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2014

    Great unit, 0 issues, worth every cent !


  4. Flying the Enterprise 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jul 2013

    After recently buying the AxeFX 2 with the MFC controller my overall opinion about this product is that it completely services my on stage needs and is also an extra convenience in the studio as well. The LCD display and LED lights are bright enough to be seen easily at gigs during both daylight and nighttime. The options available to me are so great my head is spinning with possibilities about how I'm going to run my sound now at gigs haha. My drummer said from his perspective I had the flight console of Star Treks enterprise at my feet lol


  5. MFC-101"WHAT A PIECE OF GEAR"...! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th May 2013

    I have owned my AXE FX-II for a while now,but was using mr ART-X15 ultrafoot as a switcher,then my vox VC12. I should have ordered the MFC 101 from the very start to compliment the AXE FX-II..! It is one amazing unit and am very pleased with it..Most of all i would really like to thank Andrew and Independant Music for their help and also his super quick service in despatching my item..A job very well done..I highly recommend their service and expert advice on any of their products and more(its worth asking questions..lol)...Well done Andrew and thank you ever so much once again...Ricky..:)


  6. Missing link for the Axe FX 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Mar 2013

    I'm stoked about my Axe FX II, but having the MFC really adds a new dimension to how you set up your presets and effects, and actually inspires you to try new sounds and effects since it's so easy to access them. Built in tuner means no need for an extra pedal on your board, and the construction and quality of the thing warrants the seemingly hefty price tag. I was considering getting a cheaper behringer footswitch, but as soon as i fired the MFC up and started playing with it, any worry about the price went away instantly. Buy one.


  7. If you have the Axe Fx II, you need this. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Feb 2013

    I know that there is a vast amount of deep editing and setup I could do to make this do amazing things, but even straight out of the box the integratin is tight, everything defaults to something useful, and everything about it is PRO. I know it seems a bit pricy (not more than similar options though) but if you are reading this review you probably either have the axe and are thinking of adding a foot switching system or are looking at the whole package. Either way, IMHO, this is what you need. It will continue to inspire and perform at a world class level long after the sticker shock wears off.


  8. Must hve for the AXEFX II 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jan 2013

    Excellent sized screen and font on the MFC makes for ease of use when performing standing up. Decent spacing between the foot selectors means no pushing the wrong selection. It really compliments the AXEFX II perfectly. I was not sure before purchasing, however i can safely say it is well worth your dollars for this unit if you have the AXEFX II, id be surprised if you were disappointed.


  9. The best way to optimize the Axe FX 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jan 2013

    This is perhaps the best engineered piece of hardware I have owned. It is well thought out, well constructed and integrates perfectly with the Axe-fx.
    I don't know why I took so long to make the purchase....!


  10. Perfect companion for my AxeII 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2012

    Having purchased the Axe FXII it was only a matter of when the MFC would arrive .
    Built very well, with easy to see LED's. It works well straight out of the box with a very easy setup from the unit, making the layout fully customised. It has completed the transition into the world of Axe FX and I am not looking back, no more massive pedal boards, no more cable looms. Just me, my guitar my Axe Fx and my MFC. Simple yet so powerful.
