    Does the TC Helicon Voicelive 3 extreme have blendable overdrive for bass? Trying to find an all in one pedal for me. I sing and play bass and I really like the bended overdrive sound of something like the MXR M80 Bass D.I.+.

      mesamark3 I have a Tc Helicon VSM300 That is making a very loud distorted sound. It does not appear to be the driver. How can I get this serviced?

    Dear All, 

    I just wanted to write a letter to Bugera but I found myself in a serious registration process in case of reach you. So I am a guitarist who usually plays alone or with a singer in a duet. I'm Hungarian but I live in Vietnam. I've been always searching for the best compact combo amp, a kinda Swiss knife. Through the years I had Marshall50 acoustic, Roland AC60, Fishman Mini - among the 3 it was the best so far. But it only was. Because once I connected a distortion pedal and I blew away the tweeter. 
    And recently I ve found the Bugera AC60 which seems to be the closest to my dreams. It does not sport a tweeter to burn it down but has a loop where I can connect my electric guitar with amp/cab simulation without damaging the speaker - of course not using full gains.
    My dream combo that no company has ever made yet would be:
    - sporting 3 channels + 6.3mm aux in (guitar, mic, my electric pedal kick drum)
    - able to handle acoustic/hollow body and electric guitars all
    - switchable tweeter or frequency selector: full range for the mic and acoustic guitar, middle and bass for other guitars
    - tuner, reverb onboard
    - line out 
    - loop circuit
    - 60 Watt output

    The makers think that all gigging guitarists (street, small bar, etc.) play with acoustic guitars when they sing. No one thinks of electric guitar users who need a mic channel either. There is no such amp at the market which offers a compact solution for this above. Now I m planning to buy the Bugera AC60, and I hope I will not blow the double cone speaker away. 
    Thank you for your attention

      Oh, in me first letter I was not clear. So I owned a Marshall AS 50D - that amp is a bulky failure. The Roland AC60 is a rip-off: way too expensive and cheats the amateurs: it is only a 2x30 Watt, very weak amp, it is only 30W, not 60, plus colors the guitar sound, the Fishman Mini is the only good one among the 3 I had. I read in reviews, it gives a better microphone sound than the Bugera but I think I can live with the Bugera's mic channel well.

    Hello people,

    My V55 is making these horrendous popping, thunderous sounds when some volume is applied. Also I can not get any reverb out of it, as well as noticed the Bass, Mid and Treble have very little or no effect. Replaced the Tubes, re-seated the tubes several times, checked for cold solder joints, I have tested both the +15 and +5 Vdc out of the 7815 and 7805 Regulators OK. The amp plays my guitar OK, nice and clean, when it is not going crazy with the horrible popping sounds. I am thinking that maybe my main board has gone bad?  Or could it be the smaller daughter card that runs the reverb, that has gone bad. Any ideas?  I also tested that the problem is there in both Triode and pentode mode. I am going to try to remove, one by one the pre-amp tube, stages to see if the problem appears to be stop. Maybe get lucky and a resistor or cap in that area has gone bad. But at this point I am really stuck. I have opened a ticket with support, but they must be very busy. (have not heard back from anyone yet) My support case # is CAS-488499-W9D1K4. I also am trying to find out the cost of both the main board, an also the smaller daughter card that is attached if it is not included.

    I've contacted them on 01.09.2021 for a spare part request and there is still no answer.

    Ticket N°: CAS-483764-D1X6P9

     

    Almost three weeks is quite sad.

      PhiaPhia13 Does anyone know how to speak to a person at TC Electronics or their reps? I need to get drives for older equipment like the Konnekt Desktop 6.

    I can only find outdated versions of the toneprint manual on the TC site. Furthermore, many of the toneprints have no notes whatsoever. Where do I get an up-to-date manual, and info on the toneprints?

      AdamCatalyst Thanks Pedro. I don’t see any links to info on the various toneprints there… does it exist? You mention the 2.0 manual, but the software is over 4.x now. Does no up-to-date manual exist?

      Thanks, Pedro. But the question still remains - Toneprint is now well into version 4.0 - the manual is 2.0. I've tried to use the 2.0 manual and it doesn't match up with what I see on my Toneprint 4.0 app. Hopefully a 4.0 manual will be produced and released at some time soon?

    Hello. So, my setup, including the Plethora X5 connected in 4CM, hasn't changed in several months. Suddenly today I have no audio reaching my amp. Based on my testing, this is directly connected to use of the insert loop on the Plethora X5.

    The tuner on my board gets a signal, so I disconnected the FX return from the amp and I get signal from the board, pre Plethora.

    I then reconnect and test the tuner on the Plethora, which sees my signal. I reboot the Plethora and I get audio until the system boots. If I disconnect the expression pedal, I have audio for about 2 sec, then it fades out. Same with reconnecting. Since my Plethora interrupts the FX loop on the amp, this means my cables and connections are fine, and it's the Plethora itself killing the signal. The amp would be silent with the loop cables connected otherwise.

    I swapped to a different boad with a switchable FX loop an I have audio, until I engage the FX loop. Basically, any boards with the FX loop patched in have extremely low output. Effectively silent. I saw another user on the FB group with this same problem.

    Any ideas?

    Hello,

    When using the delay or reverb with "kill dry ON", the dry signal is killed EVEN when the effect is BYPASSED. That is a serious issue that really limits the intended usage of the unit.

    Can you provide a quick fix firmware for this problem ?

    Cheers

    Where can I find an explanation of all the parameters in the Toneprint editor for the Sentry?

    Why can't I edit an artist Toneprint more than the 3 available parameters on the pedal itself? If I like the Steve Morse delay but want to add more modulation speed, I am out of luck? I have to start from an editable non-artist Toneprint and try to match it? Please let me know if I am missing something here.

      PedroRodrigues Hi Zoobiedood, please consider that when you store the TonePrint in your Plethora and load it without the App, the pot meter positions on the board will set the parameters and NOT the value you set in the App at the time of saving unless you used the pots on the pedal to adjust the modifiers , so App and pedal are in sync at the time of saving.

      Please remember that you are not making a preset but customize the functions of the pedal including value ranges....

      With regards to delay time there are some strategies you can use when you want to have your delay TonePrint use a specific tempo in milliseconds:

      Please map delay time value to 12 o'clock (mid) position of the pot meter (mapping page) and consider setting curve point 2 + 4 to same value, so it is easy to dial in this specific tempo by roughly setting pot to 12 o'clock position.

      Once you stored your TonePrint on the board, set the pot meters on pedal to correct values in EDIT mode before switching board or editing other TonePrints slot and it will be auto-stored on the board.
      When the we are talking about Artist TonePrint unfortunately any editing parameters is very restrict and in some cases not available.

      Thanks for the response, Pedro. What I was concerned with was the Artist Toneprints. While I have used multieffects for 30+ years, many include artist-based sounds. I have never seen a pedal where you didn't have access to edit them fully. It looks like the only thing we can do is to start with a default Toneprint and try to match it by ear to the Artist version, either doing it by memory or switching back and forth. This is highly inefficient. And there is no way to guess what dozens of parameters are.
