>>The main thing that drew me to the MFC-10 is it's support of up to 4 >>external expression pedals in addition to the one built in. >Those 5 pedals are what have me looking at it! What did you pay for >it Travis (if you don't mind telling)? 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. >Also... can you send up to 4 of the same event type AS WELL AS OTHER >EVENTS (pgm chg) on the same patch? For instance... I regularly send 8 >cc loop switcher commands along with a pgm chg on patches which call >an external fuzz pedal plugged into my switcher... I COULD live with 4 >cc's AND a pgm chg. Otherwise, I'm having to change other parts of my >rig to accomodate a different controller. 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) >power supply? Included. >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. Thanks, Travis.
