Used for ten years, after going through the stage "on tap switches". I have not tried a lot of gear before him, because I knew that it was exactly what I needed.
Switch control 10 + 1 + 1 + 6 expression pedal external controllers and 12 banks of 10 signals, short plenty to keep everyone happy! Expression Pedal Roland EV5 is the type, that is to say basic but effective.
It costs still expensive just to the south (€ 380 nine ten years ago!) So I pulled over to the secondhand (not bad abused elsewhere).
The FC200 is a little old companion known that it never let you down. It's rustic, to the point of being able to tweak yourself (eg I added an additional switch once drill and soldering iron). And it really is indestructible: it can throw down, it always starts like clockwork!
The biggest flaw I found is that it is very aggressive with his sheets folded corners salient fuck all the gear with which it is stored ...
The color and look is very square eighties now, but it is simple and effective (we moved onstage super fast, which is very nice). Compared to the newer gear, it just lacks a control channel amp to be perfect (but with a midi switcher is doing it).
