Hi, I was wondering if you can power a Fractal mfc-1 footcontroller, using a standard midi cable, like it works for the GCP?
If not a standard midi cable, can I get a special one Made?

The MFC-101 will accept Phantom Power on Pins 6 and 7 of its MIDI Out jack. What will you be using to provide Phantom Power?

If its a GCX, then you will need a custom cable or interface. The GCX provides Phantom Power on pins 1 and 3. You will also need a higher output power supply (9VAC and minimum 1.5A) for the GCX to handle the larger current demand of the MFC-101.

Also, just to be sure, you do have the MFC-101, not "MFC-1", right? ;)

p.s. If you are also using an Axe-FX I would suggest having it provide the Phantom Power before anything else.

Yeah I was wanting to use the GCX audio switcher to power it.
Where could I get a custom cable made, and how do up the power to what the MFC 101 needs.

I also have a Rocktron intellipitch, intellifex online,and a power station, and a pp2 in my rack.
I wondered if the Rocktron gear could power it properly w/ one of the 7 pin cables?

A 7 Pin Cable from one of the Rocktron processors would do the trick. You will need to provide power to the Phantom Power In jack on whichever processor you use. I believe your Power Station will work for this using one of the 9VAC outputs.
