MFC-10 remembered

yep, that was me :-)

That's exactly what I found. A delay of about 70ms by my guess.
Surprising, as the MFC-10 is supposed to be usable as a foot-keyboard 
sending note-Ons.

Please let me know if that's the case.
(I still have the mfc-10)

I spent quite a while on the phone with "Dusty" at Yamaha's tech support. 
The only info he had been given was a pile of manuals. He hadn't been 
a way to check for a software revision, and there was no system by which 
could report a fault to the designers.
If we're into criticising Line 6 for letting their customers be Beta 
testers, then perhaps it's worth considering that Yamaha don't even allow 
that :-)
