    +1 on this, excellent controller with great display and well designed editing facilities. Very happy, great complement to my AA6, in smaller total footprint than AA12. In my case I can also virtually access all additional AA12 buttons too with the MC6, not sure about the AA3 for this though.. Anybody?

    A Boss MS-3 is also a good option. Not Morningstar level, but it gives you additional effects as well.

    I had an AA3 with an RJM Mastermind for a while, but eventually went up to the AA12 since it was basically the same size as the AA3 + Mastermind, with the same or better functionality.

    I recently acquired a Voodoo Lab Ground Control Pro in a trade, and those things are quite nice, if a bit old-school. While programmable, it's very manual, and tedious if naming patches on that unit, but it has so many buttons that it can handle mutiple MIDI-switched things.

    Years ago I also had a Rocktron Midi-mate which was high quality and pretty easily programmed with a G-Major 2, but I never owned it while also owning an Amplifire, so I can't state how well it would work (probably just fine).

    Of all three, the RJM is the easiest to work with and pairs well with the Amplifire in general.
