PINT SIZED. FULLY FEATURED.
Everything you love about Morningstar MIDI controllers,
distilled into a pint-sized package, and more.
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.
In addition to its 5-pin MIDI output, the MC3 boasts four 3.5mm (1/8 inch) TRS MIDI
outputs, the first ever on a dedicated MIDI controller.
The decision to use 3.5mm jacks has allowed the MC3 to have 4 independent TRS
MIDI outputs despite its tiny form factor.
3.5mm MIDI outputs let you connect directly to devices with 3.5mm MIDI input and devices with 1/4 inch TRS MIDI inputs, with just a simple 3.5mm to 1/4 inch headphone adaptor.
With 3 switches and the ability to toggle between 2 pages per bank, you have quick access to 6 fully programmable presets in each of the 30 banks.
CONTROL ANYTHING WITH MIDI
Like all Morningstar MIDI controllers, the MC3 can control
any device that accepts MIDI.
The MC3 is fully programmable and capable of sending up to
16 different MIDI messages per switch.
MIDI messages can be sent simultaneously, or triggered separately by performing different actions. This gives you precise and customizable control with just one switch.
Within its compact chassis, the MC3 offers complete features, meeting the needs of
the most demanding musician even when space is a premium.
