Using the Rocktron midimate right now and only going through 4 patches for electric gigs and 2 patches for acoustic. BUT, I'm finding that I need to have more access to more IA's or to really dig into scenes to be quicker on my feet. I also need a more seem less way to bank up/down and to engage looping. Finally, I really need tuning on the floor (even if it's not perfect). I don't mind naming patches and tweaking the Midimate but I think the above would be helpful. That being said, the MFC ain't cheap. I really like the idea of a single CAT5 cable for use. IS the version 1 good enough? I guess using a stronger cable type might make more sense though (stronger?). I have the II version II. Discuss.
