    Great addition to Trio

    Way less money than Helicon switch and well made. Makes jamming much easier. Nice size and layout.

    Nice add-on

    Had the Trio-Plus for a week before I ordered this foot switch. It enables a smoother & higher level of functionality, and turns the device itself into a proper tabletop control unit (and uses them second hands!). Enhances the use and enjoyment for not too much money. No issues with set-up or operation, simple controls work consistently well. I'd do it again.

    A must have if you are using a Trio or Trio+ ... unless, of course, you enjoy bending over. My back says, thank you.

    I don't use the Trio for composing, just for have bandmates to practice with. Tons of fun to stomp on this and be surprised at the next groove that comes along.

    Great pedal. The TRS cable that comes with it works, but I would not trust it on the road...kinda flimsy.

    Buy it.

    Bought an RP360 but needed more control over bank selection, so I emailed Carson McClain at SWEETWATER and had him send me one. Got the footswitch in a few days, way sooner than I expected, and was on my way to making cool music with my band .... If you have an RP360, you need to get one of these footswitches as well.

    DigiTech FS3X Footswitch

    The DigiTech FS3X Footswitch is very convenient regarding remote control within the DigiTech Trio Pedal. The Trio can be used as your master stomp box as well. More DigiTech stomp boxes can be chained to the Trio by using the AMP output on the Trio. The last stomp box in the chain should ultimately connect to your mixer. Also, the MIXER output on the Trio, should directly connect to your mixer too using a second channel to solely produce the bass and drum parts. For Trio inputs, one is designated as CONTROL specifically for the use of the FS3X Footswitch. The other input is for GUITAR. However, don't be afraid to connect your guitar first to a multi-effects station. Then use the output of the multi-effects station to connect to the GUITAR input of the Trio. DigiTech produces several great different guitar multi-effects stations. This way you have a multitude of sounds to play, layer, and experiment with to find your own unique sound(s).

  • from Il March 20, 2014Music Background:

    Strong with JamMan Stereo

    To clarify functionality: The main unit buttons are not duplicated on the FS3X; invaluable features are added. The undo/redo button on the main unit needs to be pressed and held until the unit flashes indicating an overdub has been un/redone. The FS3X provides one-touch/immediate undo/redo which is great for on-stage performances. Also, the tempo can only be set on the main unit PRIOR to playing/recording a loop but the FS3X is adding the functionality of accomplishing this while the loop is playing for flexible time stretching. Good addition to an already great pedal.

    FS3X Foot Switch

    does exactally what its supposed to do,,love it !!! got it working with a whammy DT and its the bomb bay let me tell ya

    Great Pedal

    I use this pedal as a 3-way switch with the TC Helicon Voice Tone Harmony M. It's a very sturdy unit, and I've had no problems. My only slight quirk is that the switches could be a little farther apart, as when I'm playing keys, I'm not precisely looking at my buttons or pedals, so sometimes I'm just reaching over with my foot hoping to get the right button. OH, and I have a wide foot! Of course, this is a minor issue that only a standing keyboard might face. I'd have no problem using this pedal with any other gear.

  • from Fallon, NV March 23, 2017

    Does what it should

    How excited can you get about a foot switch? That's why it's not a 5...
    But it does its job, and makes things a GREAT deal easier... wish I'd ordered it sooner, for sure. (The looper function on the RP1000 is almost unusable without this - it gets so aggravating I think all but those with the patience of a saint will give it up. But with this? No worries, mate! :-) Smooooth sailing! :-)

  • from St. Louis metro January 20, 2017

    Sturdy and does its job

    Built tough to handle the rigors of the stage. Does its job. It came with a nice durable stereo cable.

    Connect with the Trio

    Really opens up the potential of the Trio pedal!

  • from Green Bay, Wi. April 6, 2016

    Does the job

    I bought the FS3X to use with my newly purchased Trio+. It has made it so much easier to work with, since now I can have the Trio+ on my desk but still have foot control available. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is, the quality of the connecting cable leaves a little to be desired. It's OK for home use, but the molded ends wouldn't last long on a stage and the stiff casing wants to stay kinked up...looking for someone to snag a foot on a dark stage.

  • from Silver City NM April 9, 2017Music Background:

    Does the job but.....

    I bought this for use with the Jam Man Solo XT, and wish I'd bought it much sooner. It really makes using the pedal much easier, especially live. That said, I can't figure why the engineers/designers didn't design in a start function as well as the stop. Mine came without any instructions, so maybe I'm missing something. A mild re-design of the Jam Man device could include all the functions of this pedal for only the addition of two or three square inches of space. It's easy to over shoot the numbers when using the buttons to scan up and down, so that takes a little practice. Sturdy, and delivers on what it says it will do.

    A must-have for hands-free control/function changes!!!

    I bought this footswitch to use with the DigiTech Whammy DT, to control the function/ settings changes hands-free while I play. This is soooooo worth the extra little bit of the money for this to be able to change the settings while playing at home, during practices or live without having to stop playing, bend down to switch the settings, then keep playing.

    Works for both the Whammy section AND the drop/raise tune sections of the pedal. Will work with a few other DigiTech pedals as well, but I only have experience with it on the Whammy DT. And glad I bought it, because it makes changing functions extremely easy and hands-free, which is a huge thing if you about ease of control and functionality during playing.

    Digitech FS3X foot switch

    It does everything it's was advertised to do. I should have practiced with it a little more before doing a live show because I hit the wrong button a few times but it will help my gigs in the long run.

  • from Bloomington, IL March 8, 2016Music Background:

    Well made.....low cost

    Doesn't work quite like I thought it would but it does work. Another button or two would be a huge improvement for true "hands free" operation. My major issue is with the unit that it is supposed to control. The Trio Plus needs a display screen and easier way to store and recall specific song tracks in my opinion for use on stage in live performance situations.

    everything was shipped and packed well and I received the footswitch on time. thank you. I will do business with sweet water again.

  • from Austin, TX September 4, 2016

    Buttons too close / Feet not secure

    Functionally, the FS3X is a solid pedal and is an excellent addition to the RP360XP to extend its live performance capabilities.

    My primary complaint is that the foot switches are too close together (2-1/4" center-to-center).

    I wear men's US size 11 shoes, most of them with soles that are 4-3/4" wide, meaning that in order to press the center button without pressing one (or both!) of the side buttons, I have to angle my foot.

    This seems an odd oversight on the part of DigiTech engineers, since the RP360XP buttons are more widely spaced (though still not generously, I have to say). This is not a deal-breaker, but it could be a show-stopper if you accidentally press more than one switch in a live show! ;-)

    Another complaint: the adhesive rubber foot pads have already fallen off after less than two months of use. They should have been screwed into the metal case instead of relying on adhesive. The painted metal bottom surface makes it pretty slippery, so I'm forced to replace them for the unit to be usable. Again, not a huge deal, but it seems another oversight by DigiTech's designers. (The RP360XP's rubber feet are starting to fall off, as well. [Sigh])

    DigiTech FS3X Foot Switch

    Doesn't quite work the way I expected

  • from July 17, 2016

    Essential to the trio+

    The Trio+ has features that are only available by using the foot switch

  • from March 11, 2016

    Is what it is

    It's sturdy and does what it is supposed to though it feels cheap and clunky. One has to wonder why standardized foot pedals could not be used instead. Overall, the whole setup is a disappointment.

  • from August 25, 2013

    Weak with JamMan Stereo

    I bought the FS3X for my JamMan Stereo. It's referenced in the manual as the foot switch for this unit. It says it "gives you hands-free control over loop selection, tempo and stop functions". Not true. The ONLY functions you get is:
    1. Mode switch- Undoes last overdub (available on main unit)
    2. Down switch- Activates reverse play
    3. Up switch- Tempo change (available on main unit)
    If it can do anything beyond these 3 functions then I haven't been able to figure it out. So, what your getting is a 3 button foot switch where 2 of the 3 switches are duplicates of foot switch functions on the JamMan and they aren't even primary functions.

    The FS3X is built solid and it's cool that the cord is included. Sweetwater provided great customer service with the purchase.

    In all, with all the great features Digitech put into the JamMan, it's sad that the foot switch features received such little thought. Don't waist your money if you want to use it on a JamMan Stereo.
