MX & Fractal™
Unique commands

The MX has some unique commands that are not available on the Fractal FC footcontrollers™.

3 ways to use the AFX3/FM3-Channel command.

  1. Select a Channel (A/B/C/D).
  2. Switch between 2 channels.
    Example: A-D. Off = channel A, On = channel D.
  3. NXT to jump to the next channel.
    The next channel will be displayed in the LCD and the LED will change on each step: AB - CD.
Channel Select

AFX3/FM3-Block AMP1 & CAB1

Beside all the available Blocks in the Axe-Fx III/FM3/FM9™, there is an extra choice “AMP+CAB” which will affect Amp 1 and Cab 1 at the same time.


AFX3/FM3-Block & Channel

Combine commands Block and Channel. Activate the selected FX Block state and select the desired Channel (A/B/C/D) at the same time.

This reduces the amount of buttons presses.

MX & Fractal™
More Choices

With 5 different MX models you can always find a perfect MX companion.

Sometimes a big controller like the Fractal FC-6 & FC-12™ are to big or to heavy for your setup.

Sometimes you only need 5-9 extra buttons on a smaller footprint.

All MX models have the same button space (7.7cm) as the FM3/FM9 & FC-6/FC-12™.

MX & Fractal™
Control all your Midi equipment

The FC-6/FC-12™ are NOT midi controllers. They are footcontrollers which work only with the Axe-Fx III/FM3/FM9™.

The MX, on the other hand, is a fully equipped Midi controller.

If your setup has other Midi devices, the MX with 6 Midi commands per button is probably a better solution.
