Yamaha MFC-2 MIDI foot controller

Original price unknown

The Yamaha MFC2 MIDI foot controller is meant as a companion of the Yamaha WX7 MIDI wind controller. The MIDI data from the WX7 controller is received at the MIDI IN connector; the MIDI OUT connector transmits MIDI data generated and processed by the MFC2 to a synthesizer or tone generator such as the TX81Z.

By tapping a bank select footswitch and one of six program select footswitches, you will be able to rapidly recall any of 30 different programs (voices) on a synthesizer or tone generator. In addition, each program number has 6 different parameters which can be programmed to add new functions to the WX7. It is possible to have the WX7 control two different MIDI channels – and thus two different voices – simultaneously but in slightly different ways. A Key Hold footswitch can be used, for example, to hold a note on one channel while you continue to play on the other channel, while wind (volume/timbre) and lip (pitch) data from the WX7 has varying effects on each channel.

Two FC5 footswitches were provided in the box.
