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. The MC3 is an extremely compact, fully programmable MIDI controller, giving you control over all your MIDI-capable pedals or devices regardless of brand or model. Each switch can be programmed to send different messages based on what action you make, whether it is a single tap, double tap, release and more.

30 Dual-paged Banks of 3 Switches

That’s 180 programmable slots. Plenty of space to store all the presets/functions you need.

Simultaneous MIDI Control

Send up to 16 different MIDI messages with a single switch. Control up to 16 different MIDI devices via 16 unique selectable MIDI channels.

Name your Switches and Banks

All switches and banks can be named so you always know exactly what they do.


One 1/4 inch port that can be individually set to function as a MIDI output, Aux switch input or Expression pedal input.

4 TRS MIDI Outputs

The 3.5mm TRS MIDI outputs on the MC3 allow you to connect directly to your MIDI devices. This is especially useful if your devices do not have MIDI Thru ports. Ports 3 and 4 are switchable and can be configured to control all TRS MIDI devices regardless of what TRS configuration they have adopted. Ports 1 and 2 are fixed to transmit MIDI in compliance with the MIDI standard (Type A).

User-Definable MIDI and Function Message Types

Every switch is independently programmable. Choose to send various types of MIDI messages including PC, CC, Note, SysEx, MIDI Clock and many more. To navigate the Morningstar controller itself, you can also select device messages to bank up/down, jump to specific banks, engage multiple switches and much more.

Send MIDI Clock

Sync all your time-based effects via tap tempo or pre-set tempo with the built-in MIDI Clock function on the MC3. Eliminates the need for a separate MIDI clock device.

Action Based Control

Send different messages with the same switch depending on what action you perform on it - Press, Release, Double Tap, Long Press and more. For the full list of action types click here.

USB Class Compliant MIDI

Control any of your favourite DAWs and music software. Compatible with Windows, Android, OSX and iOS. Sends MIDI to your PC, Mac, phone or tablet. Receive PC, CC, Note and MIDI Clock messages, and relay them through the 5-pin and TRS MIDI outputs.
