FC-300

The FC-300 sets a new standard of power, versatility and innovation for MIDI foot control. With features such as twin expression and control pedals and more, this advanced control station is a perfect companion for any performance-based MIDI instrument or device.

Description

FEATURE

  • Advanced MIDI foot controller with two assignable expression pedals, two control pedals, nine footswitches and expandability
  • New Patch Mode stores up to 100 MIDI setups
  • In addition to standard MIDI connection, newly developed RRC2 protocol adapted for bidirectional data flow between FC-300 and Roland RRC2-equipped products
  • 3-way power supply and rock-solid metal construction for stage use
  • Two Amp Control switches for controlling amp channels or effects

Control & Expression

The FC-300 is outfitted with nine industrial-grade footswitches and two programmable expression pedals for fast, easy control and expanded performance capabilities. The backlit LCD offers a high contrast view, even in the darkest stage environments.

Power Patches

Up to 100 sets of MIDI messages/parameters can be stored simultaneously in the FC-300 as patches. Complex MIDI transmission is made simple thanks to the FC-300’s ability to package chunks of data together in a single patch, and then transmit each data-burst via footswitch.

Programmable Switching

Two multipurpose switch-jacks are built into the FC-300. These programmable outputs are an ideal feature for guitarists, as they allow amp channels to be switched from clean to lead, for example, in sync with patch changes on the FC-300.
