Georges Mach1n's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" nothing to say"

Roland FC-300
I use it for two years.

This is a very sturdy box, also rather heavy. I walked on without finesse and all is well.

I recommend buying used. people who sell did not generally used, and nine is too expensive.

level regulate according I found mine: I use the patch mode (for controlling ableton live). I have patches that send cc, other notes. it is on the need to read the manual but once its done config in general you touch more.

a priori knows a little while to do, but I suggest you download the manual first to understand if it does what you need.

Notes and cc, except that I need nothing more so I can not comment too much advanced features.


the edition is done with 4 buttons. when there looks okay but it's hardly intuitive. for a machine of this price would be the very least have a external editor like many other devices.

lots of batteries. that last little. therefore compulsory adapter.
his biggest fault is to be too heavy.

I do not have much to say. this is serious, strong and effective. and that's exactly what good right?

MORE:
This controller is a nice, heavy, so very stable ground, very robust.
-Both pedals are comfortable running right (not too long, allowing games "whawha" nervous and accurate.
Keyboardist-being (Rhodes), I use it sitting, and it poses no problem except the 2 switches in the two pedals right (when they are pushed to the bottom): they are almost impossible to trigger while sitting. up .. no problem.
You can also pluguer to external 6switchs which, by adding switches FC-300 gives you a nice control panel at the bottom.

Patch-mode is quite impressive, it can send a "click" a chain of controls (type Control change, prog exchange sys exclusive on any midi channel). The programming is a bit long (which is normal), but relatively simple, especially since there is a way to find the French manual on the web.
nb: patch mode, 7 different switches used to trigger a "patch", so there are only two switches and two pedals to send exchange controls.

MEDIUM:
-Controller mode: In this mode, you can assign a different exchange control on all switches and pedals FC-300 (ie 7 assignments for switches and 2 pedals, plus 2 switches under the pedals), but SINGLE CHANNEL MIDI. There are 5 memory to configure the FC 5maps different assignments.

LARGE LESS:
-Attention, FC-300 can transmit only controls the exchange of 1 to 90.
It can therefore transmit to exchange controls 91-128. If like me you have a device (Receptor) with exchange controls pre-assigned and can not be changed from 100 to 125, FC-300 can not control it!

-Secondly, the FC-300 can not receive anything from another device, so it is impossible to trigger a patch of FC-300 from an external device
-> If you have another hand controller as Novation SLII example, you can not, click on the Novation trigger a configuration or a patch of FC-300.
I can tell you that it creates serious complications.

nb: the MIDI IN FC serves only the transmission of data stored FC.

FINALLY:
The FC-300 is sturdy and nice, but the two gaps that I described above make it unfortunately, despite his production, an incomplete.
-I think this is the value insufficient.
I do not regret my purchase, however, because I bought it secondhand at a very low price.
To half price or possibly 2/3 of the price: yes
Buy new-no, it's too expensive

Exxi3's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland FC-300
Hello,

I have this little gem in the last few days and I am satisfied with TRS.

In fact, I wanted to buy a FC-200 to drive my Roland GP-100, which is my sound-design tool for guitar prdilection even if I have stuff latest issue (Guitar Rig, Line 6 TonePort KB37). Until I used the one Nobels MF-2, trs good pdalier twelve o'clock too, but not quite in the same CATEGORY.

So seeking a FC-200 OCCAZ of my gear store assigned after an order is not honored, I was offered a CF-300 nine 300 .-- Swiss Francs, ie. D. 200 .--.

C'tait a little more than I wanted to, but the price ... O)

In fact, all dpend of what is going to fly with: It is well worth it if you use its advanced functions programming patches, CC, SysEx and expression. Master not necessarily very easy, given the number of possibilities it offers.

If not a goods cheaper Nobels, with 1 or 2 expression pedals, make ample case.

It really is the top of pdalier noon on FC-300. It PSE ton, exudes solidity and quality of hardware and finishes are irrprochables.

To get an ide of bte prcise more, check out the manual http://www.roland.com/products/en/FC-300/index.html

Kind regards,
