Not at all. I paid about $350, but that doesn't count the 4 Ernie Ball
volume pedals plugged into it... ouch. But this was the deciding factor in
my purchase. I was also looking at the PMC-10, which I kept seeing go for
way too much money.

I haven't figured out how to do that. Here is what the manual says:

"Up to 4 of the same type of MIDI data (one of the following - Note On/Off,
Control Change, Program Change) can be simultaneously transmitted over
several MIDI channels."

>can you play synth chords with the mfc 10 also?

Yes, by sending 4 simultaneous note-on messages.

>Does it have an off and on switch?

Uhm, yes. (if you mean for turning the unit off and on)

>is it sturdy?

Seems that way, but I wouldn't say it's built like a tank. Remember, I have
only had it a month...

Sorry about the borderline topic, but I really had a hard time finding
detailed information about this thing considering the Yamaha spec page was
pretty much useless. If you folks have other questions, I would gladly
answer them off the list.
