      Dale_M I am afraid we cannot share schematics with non partners we can assist with a non warranty repair via the support tab/Service if you require assistance.

    Hello everyone, I am a recent French user and I have a question.
    Is it possible to use the IR cab stereo outputs with the effects of the X5 while using the amp distortion and the real cab on stage?
    The goal is to broadcast in parallel on front-facing live speakers while keeping the configuration with my amp.
    If so, what is the routing?
    Thank you

      PedroRodrigues Hi FreK2706, thank you for your post, please consider that its not possible to use the IR cab sim with your Plethora X5. as the cab sim on the unit is not IR.Thank you

    Hi, 

    I'd like to plug the XLR balanced output (post eq) of my BQ500 into a mixing desk (Mackie ProFX16v3), but need to enable 48v phantom power of the desk. 

    Does the amp have a built-in safety to allow that? If not, can I use an XRL to 1/4 cable or another workaround? Or do I absololutly need a DI box? 

    Thanks for your help! 

    Regards,
    Alex

      Dale_M Many thanks for your question, looking at the Mackie it has a global phantom power which activates all input regardless of needing phantom power or not, I cannot see any reference to any conflict caused in the QSG of the BQ500 so I will have to check with the designers and get back to you.

    Hi,

    I was wondering if it was possible to use the TonePrint to create a dive bomb using the sub n up ?


    any ideas ?

      TC-Mike no, it can only do fixed octave, but no pitch bends. The Brainwaves Pitch shifter can do dive bombs (+/- 2 octaves max) Brainwaves has a pressure sensitive MASH switch, so you don't need an expression pedal to to trigger the dive bomb

    hola, a pletora x5 hi ha 18 presets de taulers de fàbrica -molt interessants tots ells-, hi ha la possibilitat d'afegir-ne més en el futur? i dues sol·licituds de futures actualitzacions 1º per poder fer UNDO-REDO al looper -please !!! - Sé que ho pots fer !!! i 2º afegiu una ordre de dos temps a qualsevol dels pedals per apagar tots els pedals alhora. Estaria molt bé! i 3º per ser una obra mestra per poder gravar almenys un dels bucles, per acabar dient-vos que heu fet alguna cosa espectacular amb la plétora x5 !!

    PD: ahh and the last desire one FUZZ !!!

    Midi thru issues
    I have a plethora (chnl 4) and strymon iridium(chnl 2) also a midi to trs cable ( non strymon)

    I can control,the plethora . I can control the strymon direct connecting the midi interface to the trs port of the iridium
    But
    If I use the plethora midi thru port to reach the iridium then I cannot control the iridium or apparently make any contact

    Ideas?

    When I am at home or using in low ambient noise, it works perfectly. 

    But when I am at a gig with high ambient noise, it doesn't detect the signal and the gauge swings erraticaly without homing in on the string signal. It doesn't work in multi string or single string modes. 

    It looks like the ambient noise is "confusing" it, which is of course inconcievable given that the signal is sent via the guitar cable. 

    Any thoughts / suggestions?

      PedroRodrigues Hi tremoloarm, please consider that is an odd behavior as the unit receives the signal for tuning exclusively via 1/4 JACK TS not suffering any external interference, the only thing I can think of is that if you use the unit on a pedal board when on a gig that might not provide the correct voltage that the unit requires. The unit requires a Standard 9V DC, centre negative >100 mA. It may also be advisable to check your cables and look closely to any differences on your set up when you are at a gig, maybe using the unit on a different position on the pedal board. If none of these steps helps in nay way I would suggest to follow the link below and submit an assistance request directly with our Tech support Team so we can assist you with more tools. https://community.musictribe.com/pages/create-new-ticket?type=Technical%20Support&brand=TCElectronic Thank you

    My Ditto+ won't write anything on its disk. Can't even keep a short loop in say memory 1, that I just recorded. I was once able to import 2 30 seconds loops in 2 and 3, but then, no way to import anything. Available disk space shows 500mo ! Please help. Hard reset ? How ?

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi drastic, If you have not yet done so could you please perform a factory reset?
      To perform a factory reset, perform the following procedure;

      Ensure the power is not connected to the pedal
      Press and hold in the 'left' + 'right' + footswitch
      Connect the power whilst holding these three switches in and maintain for 13 seconds
      After 13 seconds you will see the pedal factory reset and reboot.

      This should help to resolve the issue, however, if it doesn't please let me know.

      • Ditto+ disk space problems
        drastic Thanks I did it a few times already. At first it seems to work, I can loop, I can import a few loops, then for some reason , one more import puts the Ditto into an endless processing loop.. it can happen with any kind of file, even a saved loop that I made into the Ditto previously, which I re-imported after a reset. Now I stopped trying to import anything and prefer to keep it in that "working state" as I need it to work on stage tomorrow ! We do need to find a solution.

        PedroRodrigues Hi drastic, sorry to barge in this conversation but have you check that the FW version is effectively updated, the start pedal must be in booth mode with USB cable connected
        Also confirm that the extended mode is ON with Extend Icon visible in display prior to start o initial loop recording.

        Please also consider that the Extended loop will ONLY work on the first OVERDDUB recording and extend the length of initial loop.

        Please be aware that the Extended function will not work on each Overdub, the Extend Loop only works once, on first OVERDUB after initial loop.
        Please confirm the following:
        1) set xtend mode to ON
        2) select an empty track on Looper
        3) is the xtend mode icon visible in display before starting Looping ? if yes ..
        4) record a 1 bar short loop
        5) stop ditto plus by double tapping FS
        6) start play backback and press Fs for xtend Ovderdub
        7) is the ooverdub recording extended with the timer counting on once the loop end is reached ?
        8) if yes , xtend mode is working and is he leaves Ob one the total length will be a multiple of the initial loop length.
        Please also consider that only wav files are supported (so NOT mp3), in the formats described below
        • PCM mono 16bit @ 44.1kHz
        • PCM stereo 16bit @ 44.1kHz
        • PCM mono 24bit @ 44.1kHz
        • PCM stereo 24Bit @ 44.1kHz
        • PCM mono 32bit @ 44.1kHz
        • PCM stereo 32bit @ 44.1kHz
        • Float mono 32bit @ 44.1kHz
        • Float stereo 32bit @ 44.1kHz
        I hope this helps.

    I bought a Quintessence from Sweetwater and loved the sound, Mash function and tracking, but the "momentary" mode was not working. When in this mode it passed no signal at all until you pressed the footswitch, then it passed effected signal. I updated the firmware, played with the interior dip switches, but to no avail. So I sent it back to Sweetwater, who in their usual fashion exchanged it with lightning prompness. However, the newly-arrived Quintessence does the same thing. 


    I have been using the pedal in an effects loop, specifically it's the first device off the send of my Mesa Rectoverb. So on a hunch I tried it in front of an amp, and whaddya know, the "momentary" mode functions as advertised. But I want the harmonizer to work on already-distorted tones, quite a natural function for such a pedal, so placing it before the gain stages is not an option. It seems strange that the pedal would have a major feature like "momentary" disabled when placed in an effects loop, especially when the literature states that it can cope with a wide variety of input gains.
