zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: There is no sound but it does make expressing the sound potential in MIDI gear very well. Feature: Its very versatile which is its most useful feature. Its lack of a CC controller input specifically for Tap tempo (or other on/off functions) that can map to multiple devices is pain. Ease of Use: Fairly easy to use once you get the hang of programming it. Quality: Very well made. The footswitches are solid and easy to find and hit. Value: Since there is nothing else that I could find that does what this does, its value is high. Manufacturer Support: Dunno The Wow Factor: Its a pretty cool thing. Nice LED displays Overall: I've owned mine for over two years now and I still use it as the central MIDI controller for my guitar rig (w/ two amps/processors) as well as controlling my light setup through a MIDI:DMX converter. I'd replace it if they made the improvements suggeted in the "Feature" section

Sound: No sound quality at all on this, but it is a GREAT switching system. Very flexible! Heard this referred to as the Swiss Army knife of MIDI foot controllers, and I'd say that is a great analogy. Feature: Wish this had an internal power supply and not that feeble wall wart transformer that is ships with. Ease of Use: A bit confusing programming, but careful study of the manual should help to clarify. Quality: Wish there was more metal on this, but it is still quite solid. Value: I own 2 of these. One for a backup! Manufacturer Support: Have had to call on programming for this, but it has all been quite helpful when you get your call back from Yamaha. Usually a 24 hour turnaround on help. The Wow Factor: This question should be removed from this list, makes no sense whatsoever. This is musical gear, not a porno film or lingerie. Overall: I hope this lasts longer than I do, as it is used daily by me and has thus far been reliable.

SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: it doesn't make sound Feature: Flexible and easy to program. Reliable and sturdy. I've been using the same unit without issue for 5 years. During that time I also went through 4 Berhringer FCB1010 pedals and the MFC10 and FCB1010's got the same amount of use and travel. The MFC10 is still going strong after 4 FCB1010 have died. Ease of Use: Good interface. Transmits on/off, data strings and cc msgs. Will transmit multiple data sets from the same switch or pedal. Able to expand with up to 4 external CC pedals and/or switches Flexible programming. Reliable and sturdy. Quality: Extremely well made. Reliable and sturdy. I've had it on the road for 5 years and no problems. Value: The MFC1010 is about $150 more expensive then other foot controllers with similar capabilities AND IT'S WORTH IT. Manufacturer Support: Never had to deal with Yamaha about anything. The Wow Factor: It's a foot controller lol! I just want flexible programming and reliability. The MFC10 has both. Overall: I'm afraid the unit will be discontinued so I buy them (when I can afford it) when I see a good price.

Overall: I would have really appreciated a much better user interface to this pedal, or even a controller app. example: the Midi channel for sent messages is represented in hex. Not helpful. Stacking multiple commands in the 'Function" section is quite a challenge. It is very easy to brush the 'edit' button with a toe. That said, this pedal can do almost anything if you are able to slog through the poorly written manual to figure it out. I wish it had just come with a disk for PC with a config utility. It would have saved me a lot of time on the floor in front of this thing.
