Roland FC-300 MIDI foot controller features two assignable expression pedals, two control pedals, nine footswitches and even more expandability, and can store up to 100 MIDI setups. Live performers will benefit from the unit’s two Amp Control switches, which control amps and effects. A three-way power supply such as AA batteries, AC adaptor & via RRC2 and rugged construction ensure road-worthy dependability from this foot controller.

Control & Expression
The FC-300 is outfitted with nine industrial-grade footswitches and 2 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.
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.
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.
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
