Description & Specs

The Future Impact v3 is an incredibly versatile pedal and the range of sounds it is capable of producing is quite staggering. In addition to producing synthesizer sounds such as basses, leads and pads, it can function as an octaver, chorus, flanger, phaser, distortion, envelope filter, traditional wah-wah, tremolo, reverb, etc. and even has a built-in tuner. As such, it can potentially replace a whole pedalboard of dedicated single-effect pedals.

You may already be familiar with the Future Impact I. With its very powerful signal processor it is able to replicate the various oscillator, filter, amplifier and envelope generator blocks found in classic synthesizers. In addition, it contains signal processing blocks more traditionally used for processing the sound of an instrument such as a harmonizer block and audio effects such as chorus, distortion and EQ. These architectures complement each other in a very flexible way.

But Future Impact v3 goes far beyond that. While its hardware is identical to that of the Future Impact I and it is capable of hosting all the same sounds, the new software provides practically unlimited new possibilities for sound designers and players:

 With the aid of the four Flexi Controllers, the flagship feature of the Future Impact v3, the parameters of a sound can be altered in real time using a range of control sources (LFOs, envelopes, etc.) all under the full control of the player:

  • There are 10 new LFOs - including saw, square, triangle and sample-and-hold types
  • The filter and volume envelopes can be configured to be full ADSR
  • The Future Impact v3 is not restricted to being used only with bass - it can be configured for optimal performance with bass, guitar, keyboard or the AKAI EWI
  • Unlike on the original FI, the three effects blocks (equalizer, distortion and chorus) can now be used simultaneously
  • There is an oriental scale tuning for EWI users
  • An online patch sharing application provides hundreds of patches shared by the community.

Any of the 99 user programs can be edited by the user on a desktop computer editor (Windows and Mac OS X versions are available). Programs can be saved, loaded and archived on the computer through the MIDI connectors. A free library software will be downloadable from our web page, and a sound program sharing service for the user community.

Software updates can be uploaded into the FI through MIDI IN. While the FI contains all the basic features listed here at the time of the product launch, software updates will be not only bugfixes, but new features will be implemented, partly on requests and ideas of users. These updates will be free of charge for all registered FI owners. 

Since FI includes a full featured analog modelling synthesizer, it is possible to use it as a monophonic synthesizer module, driving it from a keyboard controller or a computer through MIDI IN.

I recommend this product
Best bass-synth pedal on the market !

The Future Impact v3 has been an absolute game changer. As a bass player, having synth sounds and the flexibility to create your own sounds in the Future Impact editing software opens whole new doors. The pedal itself feels solid as a rock, works perfectly and the audio tracking is instant! Which is difficult to find with many other synth pedals. Highly recommend this product!

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback.
