AXE FX II XL with MC-8 - does it work properly?


Just bought an AXE FX II XL and this was my first step towards amp modeling devices from real amps. As I play guitar live a lot, midi foot controller was a must and seems like MC-8 is perfect for this.
Does anybody know if MC-8 is completely functional with AXE FX II XL? Also, can you see the tuner on MC-8 screen properly working?
