INTRODUCTION —
Congratulations!
You are the proud owner of a Yamaha MFC2 MIDI Foot Controller which will greatly expand the versatility and
expressive power of your WX7 MIDI Wind Controller. By simply 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 synthe-
sizer or tone generator, offering easy access to a wider range of sounds. 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/imbre) and lip (pitch) data from the WX7 has varying effects on
each channel.
The MFC2 has a wide range of capabilities, and we recommend that you try out its many functions and features
while carefully reading through this owner's manual.

PRECAUTIONS
r - -
' +
1. AVOID EXCESSIVE HEAT, HUMIDITY, DUST AND
~ VIBRATION |
Keep the unit away from locations where it is likely to be ex-
posed to high temperatures or humidity — such as near radia-
tors, stoves, etc. Also avoid locations which are subject to ex-
cessive dust accumulation or vibration which could cause me-
chanical damage.
. AVOID PHYSICAL SHOCKS
Strong physical shocks to the unit can cause damage, Handle it
with care.
. DO NOT OPEN THE UNIT OR ATTEMPT REPAIRS
OR MODIFICATIONS YOURSELF
This product contains no user-serviceable parts. Refer all main-
tenance to qualified Yamaha service personnel. Opening the
unit and/or tampering with the internal circuitry will void the
warranty. |
4. MAKE SURE POWER IS OFF BEFORE MAKING
OR REMOVING CONNECTIONS
Always turn the power OFF prior to connecting or disconnect-
ing cables. This is important to prevent damage to the unit it-
self as well as other connected equipment.
5. HANDLE CABLES CAREFULLY
Always plug and unplug cables — including the AC cord — by
gripping the. connector, not the cord.
6. CLEAN WITH A SOFT DRY CLOTH
Never use solvents such as benzine or thinner to clean the unit.
Wipe clean with a soft, dry cloth.
-
7. ALWAYS USE THE CORRECT POWER SOURCE
Make sure that the power source voltage specified on the rear
panel matches your local AC mains supply.
8. ELECTRICAL INTERFERENCE
The MFC2 contains digital circuitry, and may cause interfer-
ence if placed too close to television receivers or radio receiv-
ers, or other broadcast reception equipment. If interference oc-
curs, move the MFC2 further away from the affected equip-
ment.
9. BACKUP BATTERY
The MFC2 contains a special long-life battery which backs up
the internal memory even when the power is tumed OFF. With
normal use the battery should last for about five years. If the
“Lo bATT” display appears on the MFC2, indicating that the
battery voltage is too low to safely maintain the stored data,
have the battery replaced by qualified Yamaha service person-
nel. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REPLACE THE BATTERY
YOURSELF!

O Program Select Footswitches (1 through 6)
These footswitches select any of the 6 programs available in
the currently selected BANK. 5 different BANKs can be se-
lected using the BANK SELECT footswitch described below,
giving a total of 30 programs which can be selected. '
@ Program LED Display
Shows the currently selected PROGRAM number (1 — 30).
© Preset/Parameter Data LED Display
In the PLAY and PRESET SHIFT mode, this display shows
the currently selected PRESET number. In the EDIT mode, it
shows the select PARAMETER and its associated data.
© Keys (PLAY, EDIT & PRESET SHIFT)
These keys directly select the MFC2’s PLAY, EDIT and PRE-
SET SHIFT modes.
© Preset/Parameter Increment & Decrement Keys
In the PLAY and PRESET SHIFT modes these key increment
(increase) or decrement (decrease) the selected PRESET num-
ber. In the EDIT mode they are used to increment or .decre-
ment the selected PARAMETER number. |
O Bank/Data Increment & Decrement Keys
In the PLAY and PRESET SHIFT modes these keys increment
or decrement the selected BANK. The program select
footswitches can then be used to select the desired PRO-
GRAM within the selected BANK. In the EDIT mode they are
used to increment or decrement the data value of the selected
PARAMETER.
y
O Program Increment & Decrement Keys
In all modes, these keys increment or decrement the selected
PROGRAM number. Their function is similar to that of the
program select footswitches.
O Power Switch
Slide to the ON position to tum power ON, or to the OFF po-
sition to turn power OFF. The panel LED displays and one
panel footswitch number will light when the power is turned
ON.
O DC 9V-12V IN Jack
The output cable from the supplied AC adapter is connected
here. The AC adapter output cable can be looped around the
cable anchor located just below this jack to prevent accidental
unplugging.
O Key Hold and Bank Select Footswitch Jacks
The supplied external footswitches are connected here. Either
footswitch can be plugged into either jack.
O MIDI IN and OUT Connectors
The MIDI data from the WX7 Wind MIDI Controller is re-
ceived at the MIDI IN connector. The MIDI OUT connector
transmits MIDI data generated and processed by the MFC2 to
a synthesizer or tone generator.
SETTING UP
© Begin by connecting the supplied external footswitches to the
BANK SELECT and KEY HOLD jacks on the MFC2 rear
panel. Either footswitch can be plugged into either jack. Place
the external footswitches in a convenient location beside the
MFC2.
@ Next, connect the MIDI OUT connector on the WX7 power
pack/interface to the MIDI IN connector on the MFC2. If you
will be standing up and moving about while playing, make sure
that the MIDI cable used is long enough to permit freedom of
movement. It’s a good idea, however, not to use MIDI cables
longer than about 15 meters, since longer cables can pick up
noise that may affect operation.
@ Connect the MFC2 MIDI OUT connector to the MIDI IN con-
— nector of your synthesizer or tone generator.
@ If you will be using an additional synthesizer or tone generator
to provide a second voice, connect the MIDI THRU connector
from the first synthesizer or tone generator to the MIDI IN con-
nector of the second synthesizer or tone generator.
® Connect the supplied AC adapter output plug to the DC9V-12V
IN jack on the MFC2 rear panel. The power cable can be
looped around the cable anchor located just below the DC9V-
12V IN jack to prevent accidental unplugging.
® Plug the AC adaptor into a convenient AC outlet and turn the
MFC2 POWER switch ON.
NOTE: Make sure your synthesizer(s) and/or tone
generator(s) are set to receive on the MIDI channel(s) on
Which the MFC2 is transmitting. Initially, the MFC2 main
channel is set to MIDI channel 1 and the sub channel to
MIDI channel 2.

In the sample system shown here, we've
used a TX81Z FM Tone Generator to provide
a wide range of FM voices. The TX81Z output
is connected to an REX50 Multi-effector to
add reverberation, delay, chorus, pitch
change and other effects to the TX81z
sound.
MEMORY CONFIGURATION & OPERATIONAL OUTLINE
The MFC2 has eight PRESETS, each of which contains 30 PRO-
GRAMS. Each PROGRAM contains 6 PARAMETERS (except for
PROGRAM 1 in each PRESET which has 7 PARAMETERS).

Preset § Preset 6 Preset 7 Preset 8
The PARAMETERS are used to set up important operational
modes for each program: a
PARAMETER 1 (PROCESS SELECT) determines how the
KEY HOLD footswitch will function, and how certain types
of MIDI data from the WX7 Wind MIDI Controller will be
assigned to the main and sub MIDI channels.
PARAMETER 2 (CHAIN) and PARAMETER 3 (VALUE)
make it possible to automatically increment the PROGRAM
number when a specified note is played on the WX7, when a
specified note is released, when a specified breath pressure is
exceeded, or when a specified degree of pitch bend is ex-
ceeded. | |
PARAMETER 4 (TX CHANNEL) sets the main MIDI trans-
mission channel for the selected PROGRAM.
PARAMETER 5 (TRANSPOSE) makes it possible to trans-
pose the note input from the WX7 over a + 2-octave range.
PARAMETER 6 (P/C NO.) sets the MIDI program change
number which will be transmitted when the corresponding
PROGRAM is selected, thus determining the number of the
voice that will be selected on your synthesizer or tone genera-
tor. |
PARAMETER 7 (LOOP) is available only on PROGRAM 1
in each PRESET. LOOP makes it possible to limit the number
of PROGRAMS which are selected using the footswitches
when only a few are needed, cycling back to the first program —
in the “loop” after the last has been selected.
All these PARAMETERS go into effect whenever you select one of
the 30 PROGRAMS within each PRESET.
The PRESETS simply allow you to have up to eight completely dif-
ferent sets of programs with different parameters available for use
at any time. You could, for example, program each PRESET with
different parameters that will be used in different “sets” during a
performance. |
As you can see, the MFC2 is much more than a simple MIDI pro-
gram switcher, and you will need to carefully set up the various
parameters to produce the results you want. Once this is done, how-
ever, all you have to do is press the footswitches and play.
THE PLAY MODE
M—Ú—o—;———U—l: ] á T—[ T—o———]————.—]] ;];];;———é—íÚ]í;TLLT—;] _—]—8—];l
The PLAY MODE is the mode in which you will normally use the
MFC2 while playing the WX7. The PLAY MODE allows you to
select previously set up PROGRAMS using the MFC?'s
footswitches, thus selecting appropriate voices on your synthesizer
or tone generator and activating the corresponding parameters.
We'll discuss the PLAY MODE first so that you can try out the
MFC2 with the initial factory-preset PARAMETERS, which are as
follows and are the same for all programs: |
PARAMETER 1 (PROCESS SELECT) is set to a value of
“1” (Breath). This means that the MIDI sub-channel is active
and that a second voice or tone generator set to receive on the
the sub-channel can be controlled simultaneously with the
main-channel voice. The KEY HOLD footswitch is also ac-
tive, so that by pressing it you can hold a note on the sub-
channel voice while continuing to play over it using the main-
channel voice. The initial setting for the main MIDI channel is
channel 1 (see PARAMETER 4, below), and the sub-channel
is always the next highest MIDI channel (in this case, channel
2). If you have a multi-voice tone generator or two tone gen-
erators, set up two different voices to receive on these chan-
nels to try out this effect.
PARAMETER 2 (CHAIN) and PARAMETER 3 (VALUE)
are set for no chain operation.
PARAMETER 4 (TX CHANNEL) is set to MIDI channel 1.
The sub-channel is therefore channel 2.
PARAMETER § (TRANSPOSE) is set to “C3” (no transposi-
tion).
PARAMETER 6 (P/C NO) is set so that PROGRAMS 1
through 30 transmit the corresponding program change num-
bers (1 — 30). This means that if you select PROGRAM 10
on the MFC2, voice number 10 will be selected on your syn-
thesizer or tone generator, and so on. |
PARAMETE OP) is set so that the maximum number
of PROGRAMS can be selected (30).
PLAY MODE OPERATION
D Make sure that your system is properly set up and that your
synthesizer or tone generator(s) is set to receive on the appro-
priate MIDI channel(s). |
@ Press the PLAY MODE key to enter the PLAY MODE. At this
point the currently selected PROGRAM number will be shown
on the PROGRAM LED display, and the currently selected
PRESET number will be shown on the PRESET LED display.
- @ Use the BANK SELECT footswitch and the six footswitches on
the MFC2 panel to select the desired program. The number
above the selected panel footswitch will light to show that it has
been selected.

BANK SELECT
There are 5 BANKS, and the MFC2 footswitches select the 6
programs available in each BANK. The first BANK contains
PROGRAMS 1 through 6, the second BANK contains PRO-
GRAMS 7 through 12, and so on up to PROGRAM 30 in the
last BANK. If for example, you are in BANK 1 and have se-
lected PROGRAM 2, and then you press the BANK SELECT
footswitch the newly selected PROGRAM will be PROGRAM .
8. If you press the BANK SELECT footswitch again PRO-
GRAM 14 will be selected. Press the BANK SELECT
footswitch three more times and PROGRAMS 20, 26, and fi-
nally 2 will be selected. Note that the BANK SELECT function
“wraps around” so that the first BANK is re-selected after the
last BANK. |
@ Use the KEY HOLD switch when needed to create the effect
specified by the value of PARAMETER 1.
In the PLAY MODE the panel BANK DEC (decrement) and INC
(increment) keys can also be used to select a new BANK. Likewise,
the panel PROGRAM INC and DEC keys can be used to select any
PROGRAM. All of these keys feature continuous incrementing or
decrementing, so if you hold one down you can rapidly search for a
desired BANK or PROGRAM in the specified “direction.” In the
PLAY mode, the panel PRESET DEC and INC keys can be used in
the same way to select a new PRESET. Ш

When the KEY HOLD footswitch is not pressed, both the main
and sub-channel voices can be played simultaneously. When the
KEY HOLD footswitch is pressed, the sub-channel note is fixed
at the selected pitch and further notes played affect the main
channel only. Wind (breath pressure) and lip (bend) data affect
both the main and sub-channels. When the KEY HOLD
footswitch is released, the sub-channel note automatically
switches to the note being played on the main channel.

PARAMETER 2: Chain
PARAMETER 3: Value
These two parameters work together to automatically increment the
PROGRAM number by one when certain conditions are met.
H Parameter 2 = 0
No chain (automatic PROGRAM incrementing) occurs, regard-
less of the setting of PARAMETER 3.
EH Parameter 2 = 1
— The PROGRAM number is automatically incremented by one
when the key (note) specified by PARAMETER 3 is played.
The PARAMETER 3 data range is from 0 to 127. A setting of
60 corresponds to the note C3 (middle C), 61 corresponds to
C#3, 72 corresponds to C4, etc.
ME Parameter 2 = 2
The PROGRAM number is automatically incremented by one
when the key (note) specified by PARAMETER 3 is released.
The PARAMETER 3 data range is from 0 to 127. A setting of
60 corresponds to the note C3 (middle C), 61 corresponds to
C#3, 72 corresponds to C4, etc.
Ш Parameter 2 = 3
The PROGRAM number is automatically incremented by one
when a control change or after touch (breath pressure) value ex-
ceeding that specified by PARAMETER 3 is received. The PA-
RAMETER 3 data range is from 0 to 127, with 0 representing
no breath pressure and 127 representing the highest breath pres-
sure. A setting of 64 causes the increment to occur when
“middle” breath pressure is exceeded.
B Parameter 2 = 4
The PROGRAM number is automatically incremented by one
when a lip (pitch bend) value exceeding that specified by PA-
RAMETER 3 is received. The PARAMETER 3 data range is
from 0 to 127, with 0 representing no pitch bend and 127 repre-
senting maximum pitch bend. A setting of 64 causes the incre-
ment to occur when about the middle of the pitch bend range is
exceeded. |
PARAMETER 4: Transmission Channel
This parameter sets the main MIDI transmission channel. The PA-
RAMETER 4 data range is from 1 to 16, with each value represent-
ing the correspondingly numbered MIDI channel. The sub-channel
is automatically set to the main MIDI channel number plus one, ex-
cept when the main MIDI channel is set to 16, in which case the
sub-channel becomes 1.
PARAMETER $: Transpose
This parameter transposes notes received from the WX7 up or
down by up to 2 octaves in semitone steps. The PARAMETER 3
data range is from C1 to C5. A setting of C3 (middle C) causes no
transposition. To transpose up a semitone, for example, press the
DATA INC key once. The display will now read “C.3,” the dot af-
ter the “C” representing a # (sharp) sign. To transpose up a third set
to “d3,” to transpose down an octave set to “C2,” etc.
PARAMETER 6: Program Change Number
This parameter determines which MIDI program change number
will be transmitted when the corresponding program is selected on
the MFC2, The PARAMETER 6 data range is from 1 to 128. If, for
example, you set this parameter to “32” for MFC2 PROGRAM
number 1, when you select PROGRAM 1 on the MFC2 voice num-
ber 32 will be selected on your synthesizer or tone generator.
* The actual voice number selected may vary according to the
‘type of equipment you use. Refer to your Keyboard/ tone gen-
erator owner's manual for details.
PARAMETER 7: Loop
This parameter is available only in PROGRAM 1 of each PRESET,
and sets the maximum number of PROGRAMS which can be se-
lected in that PRESET. The PARAMETER 7 data range is from 1
to 30. If you set this parameter to “3,” for example, only PRO-
GRAMS 1, 2 and 3 will be selectable. If you use the BANK SE-
LECT or panel footswitches to select a PROGRAM number higher
than number 3, number 3 will be selected. If you have a CHAIN set
up in PROGRAM 3, the next PROGRAM selected will be number
1 rather than number 4.

using the KEY HOLD footswitch.
1. Press the PRESET SHIFT MODE key to enter the PRESET
SHIFT mode. It is also possible to enter the PRESET SHIFT mode
by holding down the BANK SELECT footswitch for longer than 2
seconds. The current PRESET number will be shown on the PRE-.
SET LED display as in the PLAY mode. The currently selected
panel footswitch number will flash alternately with the un-selected
footswitch numbers.
2. Press the KEY HOLD footswitch to increment the PRESET
number. When PRESET number 8 is reached, the next press on the
footswitch returns to PRESET 1.
3. Press the BANK SELECT footswitch to return to the PLAY
mode.

3.2 NOTE ON/OFF |
Basically, received note on and note off messages are re-
transmitted on two MIDI channels: the specified main chan-
nel and the sub channel (sub-channel = main-channel + 1).
The full range of MIDI note and velocity data can be both re-
ceived and transmitted by the MFC2. However, the MFC2
will retransmit a maximum of three polyphonic note on/off
messages at a time. Note on/off transmission on the sub-
channel depends on the setting of the PROCESS SELECT
parameters (refer to page 8).

Received after touch messages are re-transmitted on two
MIDI channels: the specified main channel and the sub
channel (sub-channel = main-channel + 1). The full range
of MIDI after touch data can be both received and transmit-
ted by the MFC2. After touch transmission on the sub-

The active sensing message is transmitted at leas every
270 milliseconds. On the reception side, an error is as-
sumed if an active sensing message is not received for
more than 300 milliseconds. In this case, all transmission |
willbe halted for approximately 0.5 seconds.

3.6 PITCH BEND
Received pitch bend messages are re-transmitted on two
MIDI channels: the specified main channel and the sub
channel (sub-channel = main-channel + 1). However, the
resolution of the received pitch bend data is converted to
128 steps before re-transmission. Pitch bend transmission
on the sub-channel depends on the setting of the PROC-
ESS SELECT parameters (refer to page 8).

While the following statements are provided to comply with FCC Regulations in the United States, the corrective -
FCC INFORMATION
measures listed below are applicable worldwide.
This series of Yamaha professional music equipment uses frequencies that appear in the radio frequency range and
if installed in the immediate proximity of some types of audio or video devices (within three meters), interference
may occur. This series of Yamaha combo equipment have been type tested and found to comply with the specifica-
tions set for a class B computing device in accordance with those specifications listed in subpart J of part 15 of the
FCC rules. These rules are designed to provide a reasonable measure of protection against such interference.
However, this does not guarantee that interference will not occur. If your professional music equipment should be
suspected of causing interference with other electronic devices, verification can be made by turning your combo
equipment off and on. If the interference continues when your equipment is off, the equipment is not the source of
interference. If your equipment does appear to be the source of the interference, you should try to correct the
situation by using one or more of the following measures:
Relocate either the equipment or the electronic device that is being affected by the interference. Utilize power
outlets for the professional music equipment and the device being affected that are on different branch (circuit
breaker or fuse) circuits, or install AC line filters.
In the case of radio or TV interference, relocate the antenna or, if the antenna lead-in is 300 ohm ribbon lead, change
the lead-in the co-axial type cable.
If these corrective measures do not produce satisfactory results, please contact your authorized Yamaha professional
products dealer for suggestions and/or corrective measures.
If you cannot locate a franchised Yamaha professional products dealer in your general area, contact the professional
products Service Department, Yamaha Music Corporation, 6600 Orangethorpe Ave., Buena Park, CA 90620,
U.S.A,
If for any reason, you should need additional information relating to radio or TV interference, you may find a
booklet prepared by the Federal Communications Commission helpful:
“How to identify and Resolve Radio — TV Interference Problems”. This booklet is available from the U.S. Govern-
ment Printing Office, Washington D.C. 20402 - Stock No. 004-000-00345-4.
