The new FC-12 is the perfect way to control to your performances with the Axe-Fx III. This tough next-gen controller offers an impressive suite of features and capabilities, incorporating years of innovation and customer feedback. It looks great too, making an awesome addition to your stage or studio. 

The FC-12 is designed to be easy to use while granting extreme flexibility. For those who want simplicity, the unit is virtually plug-and-play. Use the “Master Layout Menu” to select from “Layouts” — pages of footswitches arranged in familiar and intuitive ways. On each layout, the LED rings change color to show switch functions and statuses (on/off/dim), while “smart” mini-LCDs eliminate guesswork (and the need for labels!) with an automatic readout for each switch.

For simple changes, use new “EZ Mode” to modify any switch in seconds. Just tap and turn to select from the many different ways to control presets, banks, scenes, effects, channels, tuner, tempo, looper, control switches, and more.

Such simplicity does not come at the cost of flexibility. Creative users can design and build their dream controller with ease. You can modify layouts with any arrangement of tap and hold functions, customize mini-display text, and more. You can even override the functions of individual footswitches on a per-preset basis.

  • 12 SSS™ switches are extremely quiet and durable, with no mechanical switch contacts to fail.
  • Plug-and-play with smart default settings, or create your own custom Layouts.
  • Switch Layouts on the fly using switches or the “Master Layout Menu”.

  • Built for stages and touring with a powdercoated 16-gauge steel chassis.
  • FASLINK™ II port for connecting to an Axe-Fx III. (Axe-Fx II not supported).

    Amazingly Flexible

    The FC-12 is amazingly flexible and you can customize it to be anything you want. But its default programming is so good, I don't think it needs a thing.

    Can't believe I waited on picking this up!

    FAS really made sure to consider all aspects of a solid UI with the FC-12. I was using a MIDI controller before to control scene changes, but FC-12 is so much easier to use and program. It really does cut down on the frustration and lets you just focus on playing more. If you're gonna be controlling the Axe III with a controller, the FC controllers are definitely worth it.

    I thought the MFC-101 was the cat's ass until I got my FC-12. Amazing!
