Roland FC-300 MIDI Foot Controller

Get tapping with Roland's FC 300 midi foot controller. Keeping it hands free with Roland! The FC-300 sets a new standard of power, versatility and innovation for MIDI foot control. With features such as bi-directional MIDI data flow to the Roland VG-99 via newly adopted RRC2, patch memory recall, twin expression and control pedals and more, this advanced control station is a perfect companion for Roland's new VG-99 V-Guitar System or any other performance-based MIDI instrument or device.

    • Roland FC-300 PRODUCT FEATURES:

      • 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
      • Perfect companion for the new VG-99

      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 of patch names (when used with VG-99) and other important data, 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.

      Advanced Connectivity
      Using commercially available LAN (Ethernet, CAT5) cable and the newly-adapted RRC2 protocol, the FC-300 provides both bidirectional MIDI transmission and electrical power supply with one simple connection between VG-99 and FC-300.

      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.
