    I bought an x4 used on reverb but in near mint condition. Original power supply box stickers everything. When i plug it in all the lights are orange which i hear means there is an issue with the memory card or maybe some other software malfunction. What can be done to fix this?

    I need to replace the removable "chip" inside the Nova System, where can I obtain a new chip. The one in the unit must have burned out, as is it has a mark on it and was hot to the touch. The unit is stuck and wont function. The "factory default" light is permenatly on and when I try any of the reset techniques nothing works. 

     

    Thank you

    Greetings,

    I am attempting to utilize the gear I own for a solo project.  I have a Ditto Looper, an IPad (8th gen) 128GB <100GB available, and a Beat Buddy.  My intention is to use the ditto looper to record tracks with the Beat Buddy and save them to my IPad to be played in a live setting.  Currently, my IPad isn't operating correctly.  I will not overdue on either channel.  I have tried to up date the firmware and after following the instructions mulitple time, the ditto looper doesn't respond as advertised.  Holding the leftmost button while powering up doesn't get light the first light, it lights them all.  

    Apparently something with the software has gone awry.  Please advise as to a possible solution if familiar with this problem.  Thank you.

      PedroRodrigues Hi michaeldurig, please consider that to record another take (overdub), the user must press the footswitch again while the original loop is playing back.
      The LED will turn red, indicating you’re in Record mode again.
      When the user is done, please press the footswitch once more to quit Record mode.
      The Ditto Looper will repeat the loop with both the original recording and the overdub.
      Please note that the length of the loop will never increase when overdubbing.
      When you continue playing, you will simply create additional overdubs.
      The user can record as many overdubs as he wishes, effectively there is no limit.

      To undo (delete) the last take you recorded, simply press and hold the footswitch for 1.5 seconds or longer.
      The LED will blink twice in rapid succession, and the last take will be deleted.



      To Redo restoring a previously deleted take, in this case if you have deleted the last take and you changed your mind, you can restore that take.
      To do so, simply press and hold the footswitch for 1.5 seconds or longer.
      The LED will blink twice in rapid succession, and the previously deleted take will be restored.

      Undoing and redoing overdubs can be used for more than just correcting mistakes.
      The user can make your performance more interesting by removing and bringing back sections.
      Please see below a simple example:
      Record a bass line (loop cycle 1).
      Record some chords (loop cycle 2).
      Record a melody (loop cycle 3).
      Press and hold the footswitch to remove the melody. Improvise or record something else.
      Press and hold the footswitch again to bring back the previously recorded melody.
      Please note that undoing or redoing by using the footswitch is only possible during playback.
      Holding down the footswitch after stopping loop playback/recording will delete the loop.
      To stop loop playback or recording, press the footswitch twice in short succession.
      The LED will start flashing in green to indicate that your loop is still in memory and ready for playback.
      To stop loop playback/recording and delete everything you have recorded, press the footswitch twice in short succession and hold down your foot on the second tap.
      The LED will turn off to indicate that the loop has been deleted. At this point, you can start recording loops from scratch again.

      To delete everything you have recorded, press the footswitch twice in short succession and hold down your foot on the second tap.
      The LED will turn off to indicate that the loop has been deleted.
      When you delete your loop from Ditto Looper, the device goes into True Bypass mode.


      When you power down Ditto Looper and a loop is in memory, it will be stored automatically.
      When you power up Ditto Looper again, the LED will flash in green, indicating your previously recorded loop is available.
      Just hit the footswitch, and playback will start.
      If you want to start from scratch, delete the loop as described in the previous paragraph.

      To update the Ditto Looper on a PC:
      Download the Ditto Looper updater.
      Connect your Ditto Looper to your computer via the USB mini b cable.
      Set your Ditto Looper to boot mode by inserting the power cable while holding down the footswitch. The LED will turn green to indicate it is in boot mode and ready for the software update. Then, open the updater that you downloaded in step 1.
      In the Output Device drop-down menu, select Ditto Boot. (Note: on Win XP, it will be listed as USB audio device) After this, click the green update button to start the update.
      When the progress bar reaches 100%, the LED on the pedal will change. The Ditto will reboot automatically once the update is complete. Do not disconnect the USB cable while the update is in progress.

      To update the Ditto Looper on a Mac:
      Download the Ditto Looper updater.
      Connect your Ditto Looper to your computer via the USB mini b cable.
      Set your Ditto Looper to boot mode by inserting the power cable while holding down the footswitch. The LED will turn green to indicate it is in boot mode and ready for the software update. Then, open the updater that you downloaded in step 1.
      Drag the DittoLooperSwUpdater application to your desktop and double click the icon to start the update.
      In the Output Device drop-down menu, select Ditto Boot and press the green update button to continue with the update.
      When the progress bar reaches 100%, the LED on the pedal will change. The Ditto will reboot automatically once the update is complete. Do not disconnect the USB cable while the update is in progress.
      To access the resources for this unit please follow the link below:

    Howdy,

    I just got a new Corona Chorus and have a few questions about how the Tone knob functions.

    When I have the switch set to Chorus or TriChorus, rotating the Tone knob completely counter-clockwise appears to completely remove the wet signal from the output - it almost seems like it is acting in the same way as the FX Level knob.  This was very surprising to me.  For the NON-TonePrint sounds, it does not act like a conventional tone control as far as I can tell.  Is the the expected behavior?

    When I set the switch to TonePrint, then the behavior of the knob changes according to the TonePrint that is loaded.  This is what I expected.  For some TonePrints, the behavior appears to be the same as the built-in Chorus and TriChorus settings.  For others, the Tone knob act as assigned (e.g. changes Delay params).

    If the Tone knob is mapped to the Chorus - Hi Cut function, should rotating the knob completely counter-clockwise result in a compltely dry signal?  Am I essentially "cutting" the effect from anything over 20Hz leaving only the dry signal as audible?

    Thanks for any assistance that anybody can provide.

    Scott

      DavidKnighton Hello BigBaby,
      I was hoping to reference the user manual on this one, but apparently it is missing from the website at the moment. I submitted a request to get this solved so we can have a look at the possible functions. can you clarify whether you have the green Corona Chorus pedal or the black Corona Chorus + Tri Chorus + Toneprint pedal?

        msdf Hello David, there are many manuals missing on the website. For example for the Spark Booster. Please get that fixed, too. Thanks!

        BigBaby Hi David, I replied the other day but I am not sure what happened... my reply seems to have disappeared. Anyways, I have the green Corona Chorus and I did eventually find the manual on-line, but it seems to imply that the tone control should function by rolling off the highs, whereas it seems to roll off the wet signal. Perhaps that is by design, but that is what I'd like to confirm. Thanks!

    Hello,

    On the Plethora X5, I would like to kick off the echo while having it finish the last decaying echoes versus just a hard stop of sound.  Is this possible via the Toneprint app?  I have tried to find where I would allow echos to ring after turning off effect but can't find anything. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

      PedroRodrigues Hi gman5920 please consider that you just need to set your Plethora to "buffered bypass" to get Delay/reverb spill-over . Set it under : GLOBAL SETTINGS/PRODUKT SETTINGS/BYPASS TYPE) I hope this helps.

    Hi experts,

    I want to use my Yamaha FC9 as an expression pedal with my G-System. I have connected it to the expression pedal input on the control board using a stereo cable.

    When I calibrate the pedal, the LCD on the G-System displays 23 in the minimum position (heel down) and 63 in the maximum position. It actually displays 63 at about the middle position of the pedal. Moving the pedal further to the maximum position does not change this reading.

    Consequently, when using the pedal to control a Wah Wah effect, the sound changes quite strong near the mimium position. From the middle to the maximum position, you can observe no further sound change.

    The FC9 has a 50kOhm linear potentiometer. The end terminals are connected to sleeve and tip. The wiper connects to the ring.

    I checked the resistance of the FC-9 with a multimeter.
    Sleeve - Ring
    Minimum position: < 0,1 kOhm
    Middle position: ~25kOhm
    Maximum position: 48 kOhm

    Sleeve - Tip: Always 48 kOhm

    One more thing. When I connect the expression pedal to the GFX01 instead of the control board, the readings during calibration are 23 for the minimum and 85 for the maximum position (and like before it reads 85 from the middle to the maximum position of the pedal).

    Please advise. Could this be some electronic malfunction or defect of the G-System (displays 23 when the resistance is less than 0,1kOhm)? Or do I simply have to use an expression pedal with a 25kOhm linear pot in order to make use of the full mechanical range of the pedal?

    Hope somebody can comment on this. Thank you!

    I am running FW 4.05 R1781.  The vol/expression inputs on the GFX01 rack unit work fine.  When I move the same pedals to the inputs on the control board, no dice.  Won't even calibrate.

    When I connect the pedals to the control board, I do not have anything connected to the vol/exp inputs on the GFX01.

    My G-System is pretty old, Ser No. 6532013.  Before they started making units with the new input buffer circuitry.

    Does anyone know if there is or was a hardware bug with these inputs on the controller board?  Something that can't be fixed with a FW update and requires popping open the controller board case to rework a circuit?  Perhaps was fixed in newer units?

    If anyone has the control board vol/expression inputs working it'd be great to hear from you.  I'm looking for tips and insight on how to get them working.

    Hope to hear from some experts!  Thanks.

      PedroRodrigues Hi bruneaud in this case and considering that your unit is running the FW 4.05 is to perform a reset on your unit, for that please go into your utilities menu by selecting the [edit button]->[menu mode]->rotate the page until you see utility.
      Select enter and rotate the page dial until you see clear System.
      Select enter and enter again. Wait a couple of seconds and you should get a “System Cleared” message.
      Try your pedal and see if it is functioning again. If that doesn’t solve it try step 2.

      Start with the unit powered off (unplugged)
      Now, Press and hold the “COMP” and “FILTER” button at the same time, while powering the unit back on.
      Once the screen shows the version number and a screen like this “X0X0 X27” it should start to numeric count up and reset in approx. 3 minutes.
      It is extremely useful to check a troubleshoot guide released for your unit, for that please follow the link below : https://wsi.li/dl/7LNN4zoap95YX5H4N/ I hope this helps.

    I have not seen much discussion about this.  I understand that there was a bug in early firmware that could cause expression inputs to stop functioning correctly.  The release notes for FW v3 and v4.05 indicate that these inlcude fixes for bugs related to expression pedals.

    I am running FW 4.05 R1781.  The vol/expression inputs on the GFX01 rack unit work fine.  When I move the same pedals to the inputs on the control board, no dice.  Won't even calibrate.

    My G-System is pretty old, Ser No. 6532013.  Well before they started mucking with the new input buffer circuitry.

    If anyone has the control board vol/expression inputs working it'd be great to hear from you.

    If they are working for you it'd be great if you can share any details on what you did to get them working.  Maybe they just "worked" for you, or maybe there are some hoops to jump through.

      PedroRodrigues Hi bruneaud have you tried to perform a calibration process for your unit, please try the following: • Make sure that you have connected your pedal to the Volume or Expression Inputs.
      • Select one of the four expression pedal connectors you want to calibrate. Select between: GFX1 Vol. Calib. – GFX1 Exp. Calib. CTRL Vol. Calib. – CTRL Exp. Calib.
      • Press ENTER. • The LCD now reads “Set Min”.
      • Place your pedal in minimum Position (“Heel down”) and press ENTER.
      • The LCD now reads “Set Max”.
      • Place your pedal in maximum position (“Toe down”) and press ENTER.
      • The LCD reads: “CALIBRATION DONE”.
      I is also useful to check the guide that I have provided you on your previous post I'm sure it will prove useful on this matter . I hope this helps. Thank you

    Hello guys, Is there any kind of mini pedal from TC E. that has an advanced EQ in the Toneprint editor (similar to channel strip EQs in DAWs like Logic X Pro)?

    I'd like to leave it always on in order to reduce some specific mid frequencies.
    I wish the Polytune had a feature like this...

    I brought up this topic last year but it seems to have died on the vine.

    I would very much like to see a standalone tap tempo pedal included in the next firmware update. Holding the footswitch for a second, releasing it and THEN tapping out the tempo is highly impractical to pull off on the fly in the middle of a song.

    It would be a vast improvement if one of the five stomp switches had the option to be repurposed as a standalone tap tempo. Preferably with the option to set the tempo for one or all time-based effects on the same board.
