MP-75 & MCA100 - How to enable Mic Control

Question

How can I enable Mic Control in my TC Helicon gear so that I can control it with my MP-75 or MCA100?

Answer

It varies from product to product, but luckily the MP-75 microphone and MCA100 accessory behave in exactly the same way.  So if you own an MCA100 and only see the option for an MP-75, choose MP-75 because as far as the product knows they're the same.  What your Mic Control actually controls is a whole other can of beans, so we kindly refer you to your product's respective manual to discern that.

Here is a list of products compatible with both MP-75 and MCA100, along with how to enable Mic Control in each piece of gear:
