    Does the BodyRez pre-amp pedal work well with K&K pure mini and McIntyre feather pickups?

    Thanks.

      Hi TDBirk,


      the Body-Rez is mainly designed to work with piezo based pick-ups.


      I don't own any of the pickups you mention, but know that many users of the McIntyre pickup recommend to use it with a preamp, so it might not work too well with the Body Rez. My best recommendation is to try it out at your local music store with your instrument to get an impression on how well it works for your setup.


      With best regards,


      Mike

    Hi

    I'm a huge fan of the Crystal delay on the  flashback 2. Does anyone know if a new triple delay is coming out with the same feature?

      Hi Anto,


      there is currently no triple delay version of the Fb 2 planned, but there might be another product soon that will be able to cover the same functionality.


      Best,

    Hi, I wonder if I can tune my guitar a half step down (Eb,Ab,Db,Gb,Bb,Eb) with Brainwaves Pitch Shifter, how can I do it? 

    Also, is it possible if I can pitch shift direct to Drop D tuning with the brainwaves?

    Many thanks.

      Hi, 


      you can customise the Pitch shift amount in cents, so creating a toneprint where you pitch shift all notesa half step down is possible visa the editor.


      Since the default voicings for the 2 Pitch shifters don't have a "half tone" setting, you use the "Custom" one for voice 1 and 2 to restrict pitch shifting/Tonebending to 100 cents + set the Toggle switch for each voice to "up" or "down" depending wether you want to pitch up or down.


      brainwaves 100cents down.PNG


      On the common page you set the Mode for the pitch shifter depending on your preferences (whammy mode, etc)


      it is not possible to use Brainwaves like a drop tune pedal as it cannot just pitch down the lowest string without ignoring the other 5.  


      If you just want to bend up/down the current sound by 100 cents via MASH switch, you set the "Tonebend Tone" parameters to "100 " 


      Best regards,


      Mike

    It started when I downloaded a the newest Toneprint app to my MacBook Pro. I wanted to reload the default setting No3 into my HOF2. Not only would it not load in any of my 3 Toneprint slots, there was no sound comming from the pedal untill I put in another Toneprint. I tried from both my iPhone and my laptop to no avail. Not only that, now my mash does not work, when I try to engage it, the pedal shuts off.

    Any ideas, do I need to install new firmware?

    Thanks in advance.

      Hi T-Bone,


      default Toneprint 3 for the Hof2  has the input level mapped to MASH switch, so unless you holds down the foot switch, you won't hear any signal !! this is not a bug, it is a feature   to do swellls.

      regarding MASH not working, please check that you haven't disabled it via the editor--> 


      MASH switch can be enabled/disable under the Product settings tab of the Toneprint app!

      Thanks for your input TC Mike, but unfortunatly the Mash switch is indeed on and as soon as I touch the Mash to engage, the unit stuts off.

      Hi TBone,


      can you elaborate on this?" the unit stuts off."   Does it power cycle and restarts if MASH is engaged ?


      Please let us know the steps to reproduce! 


      also does this only happen on this particular TP slot where you stored default toneprint 3 or does the unit shuts off everytime when MASH is used regardless of selector position?


      Cheers,


      Mike

      Hi Mike thanks for the follow up.


      None of the TP slots work if I load them with the default No.3 TP setting.


      And the Mash botton, when engaged, turns off the pedal.


      So in other words the pedal acts like a normal non mash pedal. When the switch is engaed the pedal is on, touch it again and the unit shuts off. This happens across the board, no matter which setting is selected, TP et al.


      My HOF2 was working perfectly untill I started using the newest TP app. Unfortunatly the pedal is just off warenty, I purchased it early October last year.

    Does adding an external Tap Tempo pedal to the stereo jack only work with the newest version of the Flasback 2 pedal or does it even work with older versions of it?

      Flashback 2 works with external tap switch in all versions. (note: you need to enable it in the toneprint app!/ "global product settings" tab when Fb2 is connected to editor and you edit any template)


      latest 1.2. service update will also include the option to use internal tap tempo mode, if MASH functionality is disabled in the Toneprint app..


      1.2 firmware update will be relreased later this week... 


      Best, Mike

      looking forware to the new firmware. Makes the Flashback 2 perfect. No external tap pedal needed and stereo delay (I guess)

    Music tribe is ignoring my case, so here goes.

    BRAND NEW BQ250.  Thresh light goes on as soon as the compressor is switched on.  Turning the Thrust knob makes no difference in the sound.  So it's completely inoperative.

      Oh yeah-- and someone mentioned on here about the active/passive switch being wired backward.  Yup, mine too.  Wondered why it was barely louder than my Ampeg.  Ampeg, by the way, has a phone number right on their support page.  So does Harbinger.  So does Fender.  So does... everyone, but this genius holding company.

      Hi operagost,


      sorry to hear about your issue.


      did you file a support ticket for your issue with the BQ250? 


      if yes, please let me know your ticket number and then i can check status with my colleagues from the care team and ask them to follow up.


       


      Thanks,

    My version of this unit has a preset for the Looper function and the effects do not work while using the Looper. I have seen videos where this would work. How can I find info on my particular model? The manual is pretty vague.  Especially when trying to use the Store function.

      When in Looper mode the FB 2 X4 cannot use delays as on top. This is due to the complexity/processing power required for  the new delay algos. The Fb2 has new Tape/BBB models, true dual delays + a polyphonic octaver used for the Crystal delay type . The Fb 1X4 could use the current delay settings on top of the looper.


      With regards to storing you use the righ spring loaded  toggle switch and pull it down to store the current settings to the selected preset location(A,B or C)  .Pulling the toggle switch up will change bank, so you get 3 presets more with direct access.


      Pressing and holding the TAP tempo switch will shift banks, indicated by the LED color (green,red) 


      tip when working with the Toneprint app: 


      while working with the editor, you can store your toneprints settings directly to a preset memeory location, without having to store to a toneprint slot first.


      Cheers,


      Mike

    I have a nova system, it's great, but my tuner is not working, i put him in the frequence 440hz, but keep out of tune. I have made the update and the problem continue.

      Hi Elvis,


      pleaese provide more details on the issue! What isn't working with the tuner exactly? 


      " i put him in the frequence 440hz, but keep out of tune." -could you re-phrase this and be a bit more detailed as to what happens?  Is it an issue with the reference pitch? is the pitch estimate/display not working?? 


      Could you maybe write the step it takes to reproduce the issue you experience? 


      thank you,


      Mike

      Hi Bruce,


      on what computer platform are you? or do you use the mobile versions of the TP app? 


      this sound like a connection error via USB.  It will also happen if you have other audio Midi App opened on your computer that hog the Midi drive needed for communication between Toneprint editor and pedal. 


      Please try reconnecting USB cable/restarting pedal and make sure you have closed all other audio related app prior to opening the Toneprint editor. On a PC you can furthemore check wether your connected Pedal is recognised by windows as an usb device .(control panel -device manager/audio video and game controller --> sub'n Up shoul de listed here)


      If you still have issues, please get in touch with our tech support team and provide them with all relavant info!


      (firmware vesion used, editor version and platform, etc)


      You can file a support ticket directly via the MG community now

    Alright. So I bought a new K-410 cab and took it straight for a European tour. The cab does it's job well, is relatively light, and looks good. The only thing I've come to dislike is how the tweeter reacts to some of my dirt pedals. I'd like to bypass it or disconnect it completely. 

    Unfortunately the customer support hotline can't help with any modifications since it would void the warranty, which I found to be a bit annoying. 

    I was going to order a K-212 to pair it with, but then I'll just end up with twice the trouble. 

    So my question is: How do I go about disconnecting the tweeter completely? Do I also need to do something to some kind of crossover circuit?

    Thanks in advance!

      You would normally EQ the sound to turn down the HF in the amp driving the speaker. If the amp can't do it then, yes, you could get something like the TC Electronics XO24 Speaker Management Controller which would include both EQ and Crossovers.
