Ideal for use with the new Roland VG-99 Guitar System.

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.

Features/Specifications:

  • Advanced MIDI foot controller with two assignable expression pedals, two control pedals, nine footswitches and expandability
