Fractal Audio Launches Updated FC-6 and FC-12

The newest versions feature larger, easier-to-read footswitch "mini displays" compatible with AXE-FX III, FM9, FM3, and older version FC controllers.


FC-6 MARK II and FC-12 MARK II units have the same exciting features and capabilities as the original FC units, and are fully compatible with the flagship Axe-Fx III rackmount processor as well as the FM9 and FM3 Amp Modeler/FX Processor/Floor units. In addition, the new Mark II versions can be freely combined with their original counterparts in daisy-chain configurations, and are interchangable with their predecessors for purposes of redundancy/backup units.

Every FC-6 and FC-12 Foot Controller offers a suite of features and capabilities, incorporating years of innovation and customer feedback. For those who want simplicity, the units are virtually plug-and-play. Use “EZ Mode” to set up or modify footswitches in seconds, tapping the switch and setting a few simple parameters to select from the many different ways to control presets, banks, scenes, effects, channels, tuner, tap tempo, looper controls, control switches, and more. Such simplicity does not come at the cost of flexibility, however, and creative users can set up custom Tap and Hold functions, change switch LED colors, customize mini-display text, and more. You can even override the functions of individual footswitches on a per-preset basis. The new models are supported with FC-EDIT, a full-featured editor built into Axe-Edit, FM9-Edit, and FM3-Edit.

FC-12 Mark II Direct Price: $749.99 - Availability: NOW SHIPPING in the USA & Canada.

FC-6 Mark II Direct Price: $549.99 - Availability: NOW SHIPPING in the USA & Canada.

There is no right or wrong way to wire a pedalboard. It’s really a matter of personal taste and what our ears find pleasing. Every musician has their own thing, and our pedalboards are certainly an extension of that. For some, reconfiguring the pedalboard is a lifelong process, and adding a new device often means something has got to go, because real estate is crucial!
