    Hi

    I'm having issues with the software and Flashback2 pedal. If I edit a template on my laptop using the on screen sliders/dials I can hear the parameters change as expected. The physical selector is set to one of the available toneprint slots. However when I try to save the modified template, I am asked for a name and when I click save all the settings change to whatever the physical position of the knob on the pedal is set at. For example suppose I change delay1 to 580ms but the physical delay knob is at 300ms then the template saves the 300ms setting. I also noticed when I load a template from the library to one of the slots it also changes the settings to whatever the pedals physical setting are, I assume this is not correct and the toneprint slots should not be affected by the knobs otherwise the whole point of creating and saving presets is pointless. Any help would be appreciated.

    Update I think I have figured out how to solve this, but I will leave the post in case someone else has the same issue. I cant find a user manual for the latest version of the editor and there is no mention of this in the one I have so this might just be a workaround rather than what should be done. So I would still appreciate some feedback. If I open the mapping tab and unassign all the knobs I can then save my the edited template. Is this the intended method?

      PedroRodrigues Hi, please follow the link below to access the TONEPRINT APP 2.0
      https://www.tcelectronic.com/tcelectronic/product?modelCode=P0CLC
      This is the last version available any new tools available on the new updates are present on the release notes on each respective version.
      Please consider that if you are referring to the fact that you have open a template and only after making any change on the template you will be able to save it, that is effectively the procedure on the TonePrint Editor. Thank you

      TC-Mike THi Steve, this is expected behavior. You store the range and the function of the pot meters and not a fixed preset value. The pots of the pedal and the app buffer are not in sync, so after storing a TonePrint to a memory location of the pedal it will load with the physical pot meter positions and the values to match. You can use the pedal pots to set the values in the Tp app to have them in sync while editing, but how the setting loads when the app is not connected will be set by the pot meter position alone.

    is there any info on the editor as i am having a great deal of trouble with simple things like moving a board to a location of my choice.

    The board wont move nothing happens is there some some sort of set up command in settings that i am missing?i have a lot of fine editing that has been lost causing me many hours of problems.Ilove hte sounds but if i cant use it? please help

     

    thank you Don Mackenzie

      WilliamR Hello Naldos, The quickest way would be to open the Plethora in the tone print app and drag the pedalboard to the locations you want. After you make the moves in the Toneprint editor, be sure to click store in board.

        Naldos Thank you William I found that the problem was simpler.I had changed the connection lead that came with the unit for a longer one for ease of working and there were certain things it just wouldn't do like in depth editing and even just moving songs around on the board.When I changed it back everything worked again!.... also when changing board from one position to another you want have to save the plethora sees it and moves it to the pedal accordingly.Thanks for your reply I appreciate it.Don

    I just obtained a PolyTune Clip Black, and need a quick sanity check: The instructions say that it turns off automatically after 5 minutes, but I assumed that this meant it would turn off after 5 minutes of disuse. Mine turns off after 5 minutes, even if I'm actively using it. Is this normal?

      WilliamR Hello Loner, This function would be normal. It does turn off after five minutes regardless if you are playing or not.

    Hello,

    I have a question about the global tap tempo mode on the Flashback 2 X4.

    On the official Flashback 2 X4 product page, it is written: "There’s even a convenient global tempo mode that lets you sync up all of your delay presets in about 2 seconds".

    But in the user manual, there is not much detail about this global tempo mode.

    Is it possible to:

    1) Switch between a "global tempo mode" (i.e. tap tempo affects all presets) and a "per-preset tempo mode" (i.e. tap tempo affects only the currently active preset)?

    or

    2) Decide which presets are affected by the tap tempo, and which presets are not affected by the tap tempo?

    For example, regarding 2), let's assume I have 3 presets (Preset A = short slapback delay 60ms, Preset B = U2-style dotted eighth delay, Preset C = lead tone delay), is it possible to change the tempo of presets B and C with the global tap tempo, but always leave preset A unaffected (i.e. always leave preset A at 60ms)?

     

    Thanks!

      PedroRodrigues Hi Sentenza please consider that regarding the Tap Tempo, the FLASHBACK 2 X4 is equipped with MIDI IN and THRU jacks, allowing an external MIDI controller to control preset and parameter changes.
      An incoming MIDI clock signal will also override the pedal’s 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.
      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.

      Please 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.
      I hope this helps

        Sentenza Thanks for your detailed explanation! However, does that mean that an external MIDI controller is the only way to do what I'd like?

    The mimiq is fantastic with a mono input and stereo output to two separate amps.  Love it.    But I have a truly stereo pedal board.  For example, I have a Flashback II stereo delay and a stereo chorus before the Mimiq.  If I have a nice ping pong delay or a lush stereo chorus heading into the mimiq in stereo, the effects get mashed up and lost in the Mimiq.  What are the best recommendations for using stereo inputs to the mimiq?  How is it supposed to work - ie - what's the purpose served by stereo inputs.  Am I missing something? Should I focus on keeping it in the mono chain before the stereo effects?

      PedroRodrigues Hi,DougB Please consider that the audio inputs on this pedal are standard 1/4" jacks (mono/TS), please connect your guitar to the mono audio input on the right side of your pedal using a regular 1/4" instrument cable, never the less the pedal also accepts stereo signals using a pair of 1/4" TS cables.

      • Mimiq - with stereo IN ????  What's the purpose?
        DougB Yes - that's my question. If I come out of a stereo chorus pedal - with a lush interesting stereo chorus on L+R and then go into the Mimiq with 2 x 1/4" cables, the Mimiq squishes the chorus channels together ruining the effect. I'm trying to think of an application where you'd put the Mimiq in the middle of a stereo chain and can't think of one. It seems that it should ONLY be a mono in, stereo out device. What am I missing?

      • Mimiq - with stereo IN ????  What's the purpose?
        PedroRodrigues Hi DougB as I mentioned above if you connect your guitar only to the mono audio input on the right side of your pedal using a regular 1/4" instrument cable you will have a mono signal arriving to the pedal. The pedal offers stereo and mono input

    So I have the Plethora set up to respond to PC and CC messages from a Rocktron MidiMate. I realize the Plethora always stores the on/off status of the individual effects on a board when you switch away from it. For example, if on board 1 I turn off a delay and then switch to board 2, when I switch back to board 1 the delay is still off. Is there a way to have a permanent default setting for each board? In this instance, so when I switch back to board 1 the delay is on.

    It gets complicated with the Rocktron as you can store the on/off status for each CC per preset. Continuing with the example, the intial state of the delay on board 1 is reflected on the Rocktron by the corresponding LED being on. Pressing the button on the Rocktron turns off the delay. But when I switch presets on the Rocktron to go to board 2 and then switch back to board 1, the delay is still off on the Plethora but the Rocktron LED for the delay is on becuase that's what the Rocktron's stored state for this board is. So I need to press the button on the Rocktron twice (to turn it off and on) to get the Plethora to turn on the delay again.

    Is there a setting on the Plethora I am missing?

    Thanks

      PedroRodrigues Hi papa_moz , Please consider that the Plethora X5 always remembers the last state of the current board, if midi CC is used to, like to bypass a slot and unit is powered down, last state is remembered just like a pedal board. Thank you

    Hello,

    With a Flashback 2 X4, is it possible to split the wet and dry signals, i.e. wet in one output and dry in the other output?

    Thanks!

      PedroRodrigues Hi, Sentenza unfortunately that will not be possible , but effectively I can suggest to set up a parallel loop and set it to effect only.

    Hi all,

    If someone can answer this would be grateful. Downloaded Finalizer several days ago. When I import an audio file (of known integrated LUFS and dBTP), in the PREPARE Module / Source File / Original the displayed LUFS and dBTP values are always different (by 2 or so dB). There should be no difference certainly of that magnitude for a measured integrated LUFS or dBTP, so I wonder why the discrepancy. My imported files loudness is measured by proper meter in LOGIC, namely the LCAST plugin, set to the proper ITU settings. Any ideas most welcome, because if I dont trust Finalizer loudness measurements I can't master with it!

     

    PS this querie has no relation to software licences - it wouldnt post unless I chose that, oddly.

      PedroRodrigues Hi, BarnabyBass Please consider that the FinalizerApp operates with extended precision in both level (infinite headroom) and time (5 times oversampling).
      The Finalizer PPM level meters and descriptors are upsampled in order to identify intersample and 0 dBFS+ peaks on Source track (A), as well as Processed track (B). Therefore, the meter scales are extended to +3 dBFS because excessive level normally falls between 0 and +3 dBFS, and most consumer equipment already exhibits distortion at +0.5 dBFS.
      When the limiter is turned off, the Finalizer does not protect against 0 dBFS+ peaks from occurring.
      When monitoring and listening one final time to the processing of your track, before Export, make sure that:
      Loudness Compensation is OFF (in Monitor)
      Unity Gain is enabled in Monitor, unless you have setup a calibrated Reference Level.
      Compare is set to “B”, i.e. the processed output
      Focus Mode is disabled such as when the entire processing chain is active.

      The Soft Clip is a bandwidth limited distortion effect, not unlike analogue tape saturation.
      Soft Clipping can add loudness to a signal at the price of distortion.
      The user may want to trade a bit of the limiter’s dynamic gain reduction for a bit of soft clipping, which is instantaneous.
      The Soft Clipper Amount will intelligently set the threshold of the Soft Clipper, corresponding to the selected Soft Clip Type, so you directly define the maximum amount of soft clipping (in dB) across the full track.
      This approach prevents any nasty surprises, such as an unexpected high amount of clipping in the last chorus, because it happened to be a little louder.

      We advise that on the Master Limiter:
      Normal operating procedures involve first setting the Limiter Gain in order to reach the desired Output level.
      On the Loudness Limiter:
      Set the output Loudness Level and let the Finalizer automatically set the limiter threshold.
      Use the Gain Reduction meters in the Limiter Edit View, and your ears, as guidelines to when it is time to stop adding more Limiter Gain, or if the Output Loudness level is maybe set too high.
      For not-previously limited or -compressed signals, as a rule of thumb, please be careful if exceeding 8 dB of gain reduction, if not for artistic reasons, in the case of the signal is already dynamic range compressed, less drastic limiting treatment is indicated.
      It is recommended fine-tuning the limiter parameters, in combination with parameters of any dynamic compressor earlier in the module chain.
      Experiment with different Release times, Limiter Profiles and Soft Clip settings to find the type that best compliments the material.
      When used in combination with the Dynamic Limiter, Soft Clip can produce a louder and denser impression than the dynamic limiter by itself. I hope this clarifies this matter. Thank you

    I see in the manual there is an explaination of a WDW but I'm using the line out of the guitar amp and not sure where the line in goes to of the G System.  Normally, with any other processor, it would be the effect unit's left mono input.  Not an option with this unit.  The guitar is supposed to go to the G's mono guitar input.  Only thing I can think of is maybe amp's line out into G's Insert Return?  Insert Send would go to the input of the amp I believe. Or am I supposed to use one of the loops return from the amp's line out?

     

    Guitar > G's input > G's L/R output > L/R Stereo power amp input > Power amp L/R out > L/R guitar cabinets

    G's Insert Send > Guitar Amp's front input

    Guitar Amp's Line out > G's ???input???

    Guitar Amp's Footswitch out > G's SW input

      WilliamR Hello Brent, William from music tribe here. Can you tell me your setup? Are you using a single head and a separate power amp with three cabs?
      • Feb 12
    • BrentPearcy
      WilliamR If you are using a single head and a separate power amp, your assumption would be right. Engage the insert in your settings, G's Insert Send > Guitar Amp's front input, Guitar > G's input > G's L/R output > L/R Stereo power amp input > Power amp L/R out > L/R guitar cabinets. Depending on your amp, a TRS cable going from the SW of the g system to your footswitch input on your amp with the relay function turned on in the g system for channel switching of your amp.
