The new FC-6 Mark II is the perfect way to control to your performances with the Axe-Fx III, FM9 or FM3. 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. In comparison to FC-12, FC-6 has SIX footswitches but is otherwise identical in terms of features and capabilities.
In comparison to the original version, FC-6 MARK II is equipped with larger and easier-to-read footswitch "mini-displays,” an upgrade sure to be popular whether the unit is used on stage, in the studio, or at home. The display size upgrade is significant, with the height of individual characters of text doubling from 4.6mm to 9.2mm, as well as being presented in a bolder and more readable font. Overall product dimensions and weight remain the same as the original version.
Functionally, the FC-6 MARK II has the same exciting features and capabilities as the original FC-6, and is 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.
The FC-6 Mark II offers an impressive suite of capabilities, incorporating years of innovation and customer feedback. For those who want simplicity, the unit is 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 layouts, set 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 model is supported with FC-EDIT, a full-featured editor built into Axe-Edit, FM9-Edit, and FM3-Edit.
