MC3 MIDI Controller

Sold out


The MC3 is a fully featured MIDI controller that fits on even the smallest of pedalboards. While size has been drastically reduced, no compromises were made in its design. The MC3 is an extremely compact, fully programmable MIDI controller, giving you control over all your MIDI-capable pedals or devices regardless of brand or model. Each switch can be programmed to send different messages based on what action you make, whether it is a single tap, double tap, release and more.

That’s 180 programmable slots.

Simultaneous MIDI Control
Send up to 16 different MIDI messages with a single switch press. Control up to 16 different MIDI devices via 16 unique selectable MIDI channels.

Name your Switches and Banks
All switches and banks can be named so you always know exactly what they do.

Expression Pedal Connectivity
Use an expression pedal for smooth continuous control over your desired effect parameters.

User-Definable MIDI Message Types
