FBV SHORTBOARD MKII


Foot Controller


FBV Shortboard MkII™ isn't your average foot controller. It's a full-on remote control that keeps you at the foot of the stage instead of tied to the front of your Line 6 amp or POD®. FBV Shortboard MkII delivers out-of-the box, plug-n-play connectivity. Stomp the 13 steel footswitches to quickly scroll and select channel presets, synchronize your time-based effects with Tap Tempo, activate effects, the chromatic tuner, and more.

When paired with Line 6 guitar amplifiers, the footswitches can activate many on-board amp effects including Quick Loop, Pitch Glide and Smart Harmony, and provide up to 128 user-created presets. The burly, full-sized volume/wah pedal feels solid under your foot and features plenty of grip. Clicking the toe-switch toggles between volume and wah control (with an illuminated LED to match). Oversized and backlit, the LCD is big, bright and easy to read. It displays the active preset name and number, and the chromatic tuner (when activated).


FBV CONTROL SOFTWARE


Take full advantage of FBV Shortboard MkII with the free and downloadable FBV Control software. The application shows you a graphical representation of your FBV Shortboard MkII and lets you customize the midi commands you send via USB.

Assign each FBV control a MIDI CC, a bank change, a program change or even transport commands to drive many popular audio applications.

Create and save endless variations - a few for gigs, a few for the studio - and easily add them to your FBV Shortboard MkII via USB. USB connectivity enables FBV Shortboard MkII to receive software and firmware updates.
