    Hello, 

    I would like to ask about Clarity M Stereo's compatibility with macOS 10.7.5. I cannot install the latest software and I think the problem is that the latest software is not compatible with an old version of macOS).

    Is there any way to download the old version of the ‘Clarity M Stereo Plug-in macOS Mac’ like 1.0.x which is compatible with macOS 10.7(Lion)?

     

    Thanks!

    • voodoo1
      TC-Marcus Yes you can.
      - Toggle to the board you want to duplicate
      - Enter edit mode
      - Push up on the Board toggleswitch
      - Select duplicate

        TC-Marcus Almost the same thing
        - Toggle to the board you want to delete
        - Enter edit mode
        - Push down on the Board toggleswitch
        - Select delete

        Note that you can also choose "clear" instead of delete. As the name suggests, this will just clear the board

    hi, I need help. I happen to have a 2 x4 flashback, and I control it with a midi clock pedal. but a few days ago I noticed that the synchronization of these was not correct, I thought there was some problem with the midi, but after doing tests, I realized that what happens is that the flashback does not accept the orders of the midi clock lower than those 76 bpm, as long as I use it with 76 bpm or more, everything synchronizes perfectly, without the tempo failing, but if I want to lower the tempo from 75 bpm, the pedal doubles the speed, that is, it makes me a subdivision of the tempo in eighth notes, regardless of the subdivision that I have in the pedal, and although this subdivision of the tempo in eighth notes (that is, at twice the time that I put lower than 75 bpm) does not affect the subdivision of the pedal, it does not It allows me to work correctly in some tempos, and I have to adjust the subdivisions until I find something that I hope it sounds like. I am sure that it is not the midi clock pedal, because this also happens with the tap tempo button of the flashback 2 x4, so I suppose it must be some firmware error or something like that. I did a test connecting it to the computer with the toneprint app, and there if, moving the tempo, I managed to get the pedal to recognize the 50 bpm that I sent in the midi clock pedal signal, but as soon as I disconnected it from the computer, the problem returns (I made the connection to the computer via USB)

      PedroRodrigues Hi luisr21 please consider that the unit allows the incoming MIDI clock signal will also override the pedal’s own Delay Time knob, but will not affect the Subdivision setting.
      The following charts detail the control and program changes accepted by FLASHBACK 2 X4. Note that the MIDI receive channel is 6.
      Preset Changes Initiating a program change will load the associated preset and un-bypass the pedal. To bypass the currently-selected preset, either use program change 1 (all FX off) or use the bypass command (cc 12) if you need to toggle the same preset on/off.

      The user must note that depending how the MIDI controller handles program change messages (0-127 or 1-128), the program number may need to be 1 digit higher than what is listed in the chart.


      The user must also note that the modifiers (knobs) can control up to 3 user-selectable parameters, so MIDI control may affect more than just the parameters listed. Custom controller setups can be arranged via the TonePrint app, and each TonePrint slot can store unique modifier configurations. Please confirm this implementation

    Hi folks,

    I have my Ditto x4 hooked up to my SingularSound Beatbuddy. The midi syncs great, meaning my looped riffs stay perfectly in time with the Beatbuddy drums. Last week I was playing a solo over a riff I'd looped and I'm absolutely convinced as I increased the beats per minute on the beatbuddy, my Ditto matched the new drum tempo and increasing the speed of the riff accordingly. I had to move my kit over the weekend and hooked everything up the same as last week, but for some reason the Ditto doesn't stay in time with the Beatbuddy now when I increase the beats per minute. The flashing light on my Ditto does increase with the increased bmp, so I know midi is working and the Beatbuddy is talking to the Ditto, but I cant get the looped riffs to increase in tempo to match.

    My question is - did I imagine it all last week?! Should the Ditto loop tempo increase to stay in time when the Beatbuddy BMP is increased or decreased? Since the Beatbuddy is telling the Ditto what to do through Midi I kind of feel it should.

    Thanks in advance!

      PedroRodrigues Hi Neal please consider that Regarding Mid specs, these are the supported controllers:

      MIDI Spec
      Responds to MIDI Channel 4 (hardcoded – can’t be changed)

      CC3 Looper 1 Rec/Dub/Start
      CC9 Looper 1 Stop
      CC14 Looper 1 Clear
      CC15 Looper 1 Level
      CC20 Looper 1 Hold to Store
      CC21 Looper 1 Clear Backtrack
      CC22 Looper 2 Rec/Dub/Start
      CC23 Looper 2 Stop
      CC24 Looper 2 Clear
      CC25 Looper 2 Level
      CC26 Looper 2 Hold to Store
      CC27 Looper 2 Clear Backtrack
      CC28 Decay “Level”
      CC29 All Loops Stop
      CC30 All Loops Clear
      CC31 FX On/Off
      CC85 Parallel/Serial Toggle

      For the FX respond to Prg change message 1 to 7

      Midi CC commands/ Prg change messages are programmed into a midi track / clip in your DAW or sequencer (Midi channel 4!)
      I would also suggest that you update the firmware for your unit, for that please follow the link below:
      https://www.tcelectronic.com/Categories/Tcelectronic/Guitar/Stompboxes/DITTO-X4-LOOPER/p/P0DE9/Downloads#googtrans(en|en)

      I hope this helps

    Hi there!

    I have a Plethora X5 incoming and have a couple of questions....

    1) in true bypass mode is the insert loop still active?

    2) in buffered bypass does the signal go through AD/DA converters?

    3) Are the cab sims on if all effect slots are off (buffered bypass)?

    Thank you in advance!

      PedroRodrigues Hi soundbee please consider that in bypass mode it bypasses any effects active on the unit using any routing even the Cab sims routing process, please also consider that any signal inputting on the unit will be converted via ADC process. Thank you

    • soundbee
      soundbee oops. Hit return... if nothing is in the insert loop but it is placed between two slots, is it still on (and signal going through 2x ADC) or does it only come in to play if something is plugged in?

    Hi,

    How do I move my boards around?
    I Toneprint I can only move the first 11 boards around (those i can see on the screen). The rest of them I can't move.

    Best regards,
    Peter

    • logp
      PedroRodrigues Hi logp, please consider that you can create and customize up to 127 custom boards with any combination of TonePrint pedals and populate each BOARD with up to 5 pedals including all TonePrint FX.
      It allows you to store up to 75 TonePrints per FX for fast and easy recall.
      Plethora X5 lets you combine up to 5 TonePrint pedals of your choice and arrange them in any order you need on each of the boards.
      Please confirm that you are running the latest version of the firmware for your unit and you have installed the latest TP App released .

    erHi,
    I hope you can explain to me why all my user made boards are gone.
    I haven't been using the diffrent boards that I have made for a while.
    Then today when I would go throgh all my boards 90% of the boards are gone and have been replased with other boards that are named User Board but these are far from identical to the boards that i have created for a coulple of month ago.
    What is reason to this has happend?

    Best regards,
    Peter

      PedroRodrigues Hi logp from your explanation I can only conclude that you have performed an update on your unit and or on your TonePrint App , as this will load new boards on the Plethora X5.

    Hi!

    I would like to run a wet/dry setup but am on a budget (and lack of space on my pedalboard, like everyone!)

    As the FB2 is analog dry-through, is there a way to use it as a wet-dry splitter? Instead of having both left and right stereo outputs, I'd like to have one output dry only and the other wet only.

    Is that possible?

    Thanks!

    Three features requests I would like to log:

     

    1. Tap Tempo

    External tap tempo using a footswitch. I would be fine using the expression pedal input to support this, or maybe the stereo input jack (like the feature on the standalone Flashback 2 you added previously). It would be good if this external tap tempo would control all pedals on the current board that support tempo (so all of them synched to the same tempo you tapped in). I know you have support for using the MASH button as tap tempo, but then I lose the MASH feature which is a huge loss.

     

    2. Configure Pedal Display

    It would be good if we could have a few options for the pedal display. Right now it shows:

    • Top: the name of the effect name (eg. "Hypergravity") in medium font
    • Middle: the type of effect type (eg. "Compressor") in large font
    • Bottom: the toneprint name (eg. "PETE'S TONE ENHANCER") in small font
    • Very Bottom: the author of the toneprint (eg. "TC ELECTRONIC) in small font

    For my typical use pattern, it would be more helpful to know the toneprint name and author in larger font so it is more readable when playing (so I know what it is currently set to when I switch boards). The effect name and type are kind of implied by the colour, so it feels kind of a waste of that display real estate.

    I don't know the best way to expose this in the UI, but even having a few options where you could choose between what info is large and what is small would be nice.

     

    3. Linking Pedal Across Boards

    I realize this might be a large change to the underlying data model in the firmware, and it might be confusing for some users, but it would be totally perfect for my use case (and potentially others).

    I'd like the abililty to link pedals across boards. For example, if I had two boards, then in slot 5 of both pedals, I could have the same Reverb instance. Right now, I can put a Reverb in both boards in slot 5, but they are not linked. So if I change the toneprint on one and then switch boards, that change is not linked and that board's Reverb has its original tone print. Same with pedal on/off...if I turn the reverb on/off on one board, when I switch to the other board, it will retain its previous setting on that board.

    Like I said, this is probably by design, as each board is considered an indepenant "scene", but the way I use it is to always have the last two pedals in all my boards be my Delay and Reverb, and then switch boards to change up the other pedals. So it would be nice to have them linked so when I'm playing, any changes to those Delay or Reverb pedals gets applied no matter what board I have selected.

    Again, how do you design a UI to do this...that might be tricky. But it would be a very cool advanced feature to add!

     

     

    Keep up the good work, this is a great product!

      tangozebra +1 for Configure Pedal Display. Would also be nice to be able to assign a "description" label to each pedal version that would be on the display. or example "Long Delay" on one instance of a Flashback and "Short Delay" on another, even when using built in toneprints.

    Can anyone help 

    My TC electronic X4 looper is showing all orange lights. 

    I fear its a software issue 

    Can anyone send me a copy of the software, or suggest somewhere i could get it?

      WilliamR Hello Jack, The firmware you are looking for is in this link. Version 1.3.0.0
      • Feb 25
    • JackSimmons1999
    • JackSimmons1999
      WilliamR Firmware Update Procedure.
      The procedure requires a PC with a standard USB Interface and the specified DC power supply.

      Do following steps before you start the firmware update application on your PC:
      1. Unplug all cables from the pedal.
      2. Connect the pedal to a PC with the USB cable.
      3. Press and hold the LOOP1 footswitch on the pedal.
      4. Insert the DC power supply plug.
      5. When the LOOP1 footswitch LED turns from Orange to Off, release the footswitch.
      6. When all four LEDs turn green the pedal is ready to be connected via USB.

      Now your PC will recognize the pedal which is ready to receive a new firmware:
      7. Launch the firmware update application.
      8. (STEP1) Select the pedal in the combo box (see note).
      9. (STEP2) Press the update button when it turns green.
      10. Wait for the progress bar to reach 100% and for the pedal to automatically restart.

      Note: You should select "USB Audio Device", if you use Windows XP.


      Trouble Shooting:
      - Please quit any MIDI related application on your PC.

        JackSimmons1999 Hi William, The pedal was bought second hand. It did not come with the internal SD card. I've since purchased one, and have followed the instructions found on this YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRkUIDxwyik

        JackSimmons1999 this method wasn't successful, I was wondering if you had any further tips?
        • Feb 26
    • JackSimmons1999
      WilliamR Hello Jack, the card should not have been missing. Not sure why the customer removed it. If you flashed the card successfully like in the video, I would try spraying the slot with some contact cleaner. I also believe the sd card should be formatted to fat32 as well.
