    Hi friends!

    I'm trying to connect my PX5 and my Boss es8 in a way where I can use 4cm with both, so I can insert a loop into the PX5 carrying the distorted signal (pedals or amp dist) just to get some fx before dirt and some after. 

    To clarify, if I use px5 as part of the signal within es8, it works fine, but I can't use lets say phaser or flanger before dist and time based/mod fx after. That's why I want to find a way to connect PX5 I/O AND fx Send/return loop into the es8, so I can use inserts or an fx loop slot to decide what goes where in any way I want. 

    Es8 signal chain: guitar>input. Compressor into loop 1, wah in loop 2, fuzz in 3, od in 4, dist 5, eq 6. 7 and 8 are free for px5 and this ideal scenario I'm describing. 4cm is being used with the volume loop to determine pre/post pedals. (Amp send into vol return, vol send into amp input, output to amp return)

    I know this is kinda complicated/tricky, but I hope someone here can help me. I've tried several connections with no positive results so far.

     

    Thanks!

    Hello there, I am new to this discussion board, and also new to electric guitar, so I am wordering, is it best to set the guitar pedal delays (flashback, the prophet, etc...) to the FX loop section of the amp or can it go on a pedal board directly to the clean input channel? I have seen a lot of videos on youtube but no one really explains which one is best. I figured there must be plenty of great guitar players here that possibly know the best answer.

    I appreciate your assistance!

      WilliamR Hello elavo, it is up to you, but generally, it's good to place it in the effects loop. This way, the delay processes the amps tone post preamp. If you ran the delay into the front and turned on your distortion channel, things can sound a bit cluttered, but it is an effect, and some people like it.

    I very much like the Plethora X5.

    I have set up a 'Custom Mode' on my Novation Launchpad Pro Mk3 to manipulate the various CC settings available under Plethora X5 Settings>Global>MIDI>CC Table, and this works brilliantly, as documented, though I share the view of another thread here about the Looper controls.

    However, an undocumented feature is sending Program Change (PC) messages and seeing the Plethora switch to the relevantly numbered Board. Is there a way to avoid this behaviour, or do I just need to set the Plethora and Launchpad to communicate on a less commonly used MIDI Channel?

      WilliamR MIDI channel select -
      Select which MIDI Channel your Plethora receives and listens to
      SETTINGS > GLOBAL > MIDI > CHANNEL SELECT
      • MIDI PC –

      You can directly recall any BOARD on PLETHORA by sending it a PC (Program
      Change) message with the corresponding number
      • MIDI CC -
      Udated CC control mapping for following items
      - BOARD UP/DOWN
      - PEDAL 1 – 5 (Engage/Bypass)
      - HOT KNOBZ (Also allows remote control of parameter knobs in EDIT MODE)
      - Looper Controls
      • MIDI CC MAPPNG – For a complete mapping table of all MIDI CC controllable
      features, navigate to
      SETTINGS > GLOBAL > MIDI > CC TABLE
      The foot switches of your Plethora can now be remote controlled via Midi using CC to BYPASS and
      ENGAGE the pedals on your board.
      CC 102 = FS1
      CC 103 = FS2
      CC 104 = FS3
      CC 105 = FS4
      CC 106 = FS5
      CC Values
      0-63 = Bypass
      64-127 = Engage

        Simon_Ford WilliamR, thank you for your response.

      • Plethora X5 Undocumented MIDI responses
        Simon_Ford I have the Plethora in the same MIDI chain as an external sound module. What took me by surprise was that sending a PC to change the instrument in the sound module also caused the Plethora board to change.

    Where can I find presets and installers for my Clarity M? Are there any recent updates like a Netflix preset?

    I vaguely remember an option to get additional presets but I cannot find anything online and anything out there is well over 2 years old.

    With the loudness war coming back around again as we mix music for streaming and film for Netflix a lot of us Clarity users are praying for new presets while we use the current metering plugins that are all up to date. I hope TC doesnt forget us.

    Hi, I loaded Mac Firmware fror Ditto + from TC Electronic site.

    It will not install saying "not a verified developer"

    what can I do to use the Firmware? I understand it is needed to import/export soundfiles from/to the Ditto +

     

    thanks!

      WilliamR Hello Bomei, William from music tribe here. Open a Mac app from an unidentified developer
      If you try to open an app that isn’t registered with Apple by an identified developer, you get a warning dialog.
      This doesn’t necessarily mean that something’s wrong with the app. For example, some apps were written before developer ID registration began. However, the app has not been reviewed, and macOS can’t check whether the app has been modified or broken since it was released.

      .

      To override your security settings and open the app anyway follow these steps:

      In the Finder on your Mac, locate the app you want to open.

      Don’t use Launchpad to do this. Launchpad doesn’t allow you to access the shortcut menu.

      Control-click the app icon, then choose Open from the shortcut menu.

      Click Open.

      The app is saved as an exception to your security settings, and you can open it in the future by double-clicking it just as you can any registered app.

      Note: You can also grant an exception for a blocked app by clicking the Open Anyway button in the General pane of Security & Privacy preferences. This button is available for about an hour after you try to open the app.

    No complaints here about the Plethora. I find that it sounds great and is extremely easy to use. I have been very happy with it so far. I would say this post is more of a request for the product than anything, and since I don't participate in the social media land where i am sure most of that happens, I am going to post here in the hopes that someone will see it and maybe that some will agree with me. 

     

    Request #1 -

    I think the unit could really use a global tap funciton that carries over to each effect and each board. Having to try and tap two different delays and get the exact time in the middle of playing can be very dificult especially when moving from one song right into another. 

    Request #2 -

    Midi Clock. We are getting a ton of other great midi features that i am currenlty using, however, no Midi clock. This is a little disappointing. It would be super handy to be able to not even have to worry about tapping at all and just being able to either hook up to my other guitar players board and get Midi clock from him or to go direct to the interface running our tracks and getting tempo from that. 

    Does anyone know if there are plans for either of these?

    Those are my two requests for the next update. Keep the awesome pedals rolling out and I will keep using them.

      WilliamR Hello Chuckdynasty, This would be the forum to submit your feature requests. I have passed these requests to the development team for consideration.

    The main reason why I bought tc pedal, was the ability to see dynamic response graphs (based on internet images). But the current software version doesnot show them, only knob range. Where can I find the old software version showing GAIN and DYNAMIC RESPONSE graphs? It's not on tc site anymore

    I've got a used TC Dreamscape and it has nice sounding toneprint. I want to load another one but not lose current. Is there a way to know/get/read what toneprint is currently loaded via any app?

    • begmas2000
      PedroRodrigues Hi,begmas2000 please consider that when a TonePrint-enabled pedal is connected
      to your computer and you click the small “i” icon
      in the lower left corner of the TonePrint Editor
      window, a dialog box will show the following information:
      – Device serial number
      – Device firmware build number
      – TonePrint Editor software version number
      – TonePrint Editor software build number.

      begmas2000 Hi thanks, but that does not say what exact tone print is loaded on the pedal right now?

    The light that indicates that the reverb is engaged comes on when you push the engage button even though no cable is attached to line in. Shouldn't the light come on only when a cable is plugged into line in? Is my pedal malfunctioning?

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi jojo7mr, this is standard operation for the HoF along with our other pedals and is not considered a sign your unit is malfunctioning.
