    Hi, I purchased both the Corona Chorus and Flashback Triple Delay because I wanted to use the Brian May toneprints.

    Unfortunately, I don't seem to get them work so I'm asking for guidance on how to upload them from the PC. Especially the delay, in a Brian May setup it's very simple: one is 800 ms with no feedback and one is 1600 ms with no feedback, but it doesn't go.

    This is what I did:

    1. Downloaded the latest version of Toneprint Editor for the PC (3.1.03)
    2. Connected my guitar to the pedal and the pedal to my amp
    3. Connected the pedal to my pc via the USB cable
    4. Launched the Toneprint Editor
    5. On the delay pedal in bypass mode, I first selected the Delay1 switch and then the TP1 mode on the knob. On the Chorus pedal in bypass mode, I first selected the Toneprint mode with the switch.
    6. Clicked

      TC-Mike Hi Allessandro,



      Please note that you can only! connect 1 pedal at a time otherwise it won*t work!



      What doesn't work exactly?



      Can you get to the editor part and see the parameters?



      Your post seems to have been truncated...

      AlessandroDelSo Hi Mike, thanks for your reply. Yes, the message has been probably truncated and, yes, I was working with one pedal at a time.



      However, I figured out that, once the tone print has been sent to the pedal, I need to disconnect the USB cable before I try to play the effect (it would be nice to add this tip to the next version of the editor's user interface).



      Now I get the toneprint working, but if I put the effect in bypass mode and then I re-press the pedal switch, I get a completely different effect. It seems the toneprint gets lost.



      I'm probably missing some steps at this point.

      Thanks for any help.

    Hello,

    I have a Voicelive Play, which I recently purchased. I started with a Harmony Singer, and my favorite feature was that I could set it up to activate harmonies while holding down the button under foot, which gave me precise control. Can this be done with the Voicelive Play?

    If not, can I cable the two devices together so that I can still use the Harmony Singer in addition to Voicelive so I can still use the feature?

    Thanks!

      Hi Kole,



      You will need the additional Foot Pedal. Switch-3 or Switch-6. There is "momentary harmonies" what you want.



      My setup is after long trials with Switch-6:



      1. 1BtnLooper



      2. LooperStop



      3. Preset down



      4. Preset up



      5. Echo (Guitar)



      6. Harmony moment



      My PA is on a stand, so I can reach it with my fingers. That works perfect! For me

    Hi everyone!

    I am new here and I have just bought myself a G-Major 2, but I haven't decided how to connect it to my guitar rig, so here is my first question:

    Do the intelligent pitch shifter track and sound best before the amp or in the loop?

      CGFRANKENSTRAT I've got mine in series, out of my Triaxis, into the G Major 2 & then into the 290 power amp. The pitch shifter tracks very well for me.

      Thanks for the input.



      I quite impressed by the pitch shifter so far. It might actually be good enough to replace my Pitchfactor, now when I am trying to simplify my rig. The idea is to see how many boxes and pedals G-Major 2 can replace in my live rig.



      Triaxis-GM2-290? Isn't that exactly what both Hatfield and Hammet are using live? Nice...

      CGFRANKENSTRAT I think, while they are using the Tri, G2 & 290, that's only a small portion of what's happening there. I thought I read they were using Diezels & Randalls too. I think James uses a JC120 for clean stuff. It must be nice to have access to ALL the gear you want as well as other people to move it & set it up for you.

      If you directly compare the two for the pitchshifted tone, which is most like the original sound ?

      I would have thought the Eventide should be better ......

      I know that they have used JC120 (inspired by The Cult's Billy Duffy) for clean sound, but in these rig presentations it seems like they are using the same rig as you are:

    Hi,

    I have problem with Inputs on UMC204. If I can select channel for recording on PC, i can choose as input only "BEHRINGER UMC 204 192". Then I can start record INPUT 1 but INPUT 2 is not selected, so it is muted. I can hear input 1 + input 2 together in my Phones at the same time, but not in monitor, or playback. My drivers can work only with equip called "BEHRINGER UMC 204 192" but this is mean only INPUT 1 NOT INPUT 2. I need choice input 1 or input 2 and next I can work with Voicemeeter Banana.

    I have WIN10 + Audacity + ASIO4ALL + UMC Driver (I try all verison on your site).

    I mean, this is the same problem as: https://community.musictribe.com/t5/Recording/UMC-204HD-very-hissy-when-I-record-even-in-a-single-input-with/td-p/157777 but there is no answer.

    Please, help me. Thx.

      Hello @Lubos , welcome to the community.


       


      For a start, you do not need ASIO4ALL so I suggest that you uninstall it. The UMC drivers already provide an ASIO interface but, in any case, Audacity does not support ASIO.


       


      The inability to record a mono track from input 2 is a limitation of Audacity. Free selection of inputs is available using fully-featured DAWs - e.g. Reaper

      I try uninstall all SW (ASIO, Driver UMC, Audiocity), then install only driver, but nothing change. I essentially need to use Voicemeeter banana for Skype with 2 mic.

      @Lubos 


      I can partially reproduce your problem on Windows 10 1909. Windows treats the UMC as a mono mic input using only the left channel. Audacity follows Windows logic so mono tracks are left (1) input only and stereo tracks have left (1) on both sides. Reaper appears to ignore Windows logic and can select each input for mono tracks.


       


      The same UMC driver on Windows 10 1803 does not show this problem. Audacity can record stereo tracks from left (1) and right (2). Mono tracks seem to be recorded as a mix of (1) and (2).


       


      I shall investigate some more and let you know if I find a workaround.

      @Lubos @Just4Fun 


      I have found a solution to the issue of Windows treating UMC inputs as mono. See this thread for details. Changing the setting as described allows Audacity, and probably other audio applications, to receive stereo inputs from the UMC. Audacity still cannot record a mono track from input 2 because it does not have that option. You can, however, record both inputs as a stereo track and then split that into two mono tracks.

    I run a mono system.
    Is it possible to route each effect to the left or right input/output exclusively, thereby creating 2 mono loops. I'd like to run filter, comp, pitch and maybe modu on the front side of the amp, and the delay and reverb into the effects loop of the amp, like you likely would if you had pedals or separate rack effects.

    My next choice is to buy a second unit, which I'm sure TC would like but my wallet would not, and would then have wasted redundancy.

      Squidmole No, that is not possible with the G-Major. The only unit TC makes that can do this is the G-System.Too bad though as it is a cool feature that should be on all FX processors.

    I am trying to setup my Behringer x32 with my DAW (Reaper) with DAW report I have followed the instruction but it seems as the the reaper is on controlling the Behringer X32 buss section and not the channel section. Is there something that I missed or didn't do correctly?

     

    Kind regards

    While the function exists, when attempting to execute a scene recall from xControl, the console ONLY asks for confirmation, which prevents the scene from recalling remotely.

    Is there a way to defeat the confirmation on the console so operation can be completed remotely?

    Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier: Effects Loops

    Effects Loops and how to use them

    Well, here we are in the 'Loop' section. Now why on earth would I make a section in the Triple Recto amp section just to talk about the effects loop on the amp? There is a good reason or two because on the Triple Rectifier amp the loop is an assignable Parallel FX Loop with send and mix level controls. Mesa say that this loop (in the Dual Rec and the Triple Recto) is one of the most comprehensive loops in any amplifier. Hmmm sales patter I think. Why? they dumped this style on the Multi Watt Rectos that follow.

    You don't dump something that works well for most people right?

    In case you don't know, a parallel loop is not always what you might need on an amp and more often than not a serial loop is of more use overall. I guess you could argue with that statement, but mesa moved to serial on this amps replacement. One of the problems with a parallel loop is that (often) it does not completely turn off - what I mean is, with the parallel loop engaged, and the output level turned off and the return level turned completely off, the signal still gets through on some designs. I have also seen some series loops do this - with the output completely off there is still a signal that gets though. All you guys who want to use a TC G-System will have trouble if the signal is not completely dead when it is supposed to be and 100% when it is supposed to be. Anyway, back to the loops.

    Secondly, the parallel loop is always basically 'in' whereas a serial loop can often be completely switched out. A simpler way of thinking about it for a parallel loop is that the 'loop' runs out of the amp and back in while there remains a direct conection also between the preamp and power amp so that the parallel loop adds to the signal already there. Things like compression, wah or eq will be 'mixed' with your original signal having an effect of 'watering down' the effect on a parallel loop. Basically for these sort of effects it's not good.

    In the case of a serial loop there is only one route instead of two - the signal exits the preamp, goes through the effects and comes back in to the amp to the power amp - and that is the ONLY route there is. For delay and stuff like that it sounds great, but there is also a snag with serial loops and that is, when turned on the whole signal goes through your pedal. Many guys will say that the loop in a tube amp positively 'sucks' the tone right out of the amp and I would then say (based on the above) that parallel loops suck half the tone, while series therefore must suck all the tone! But that's just an analogy and personally I can hear a difference, but its not earth shatteringly different to my ears.

    My view, is that mesa boogie got some stick for this parallel loop choice, why else would you change it? everything else about the loop, the controls etc seem to be the same on the multiwatt replacement of this amp so I guess far more wanted a series loop.

    I would NOT bypass the loop on the dual and triple rectifier amps because if you do, then you will have no solo or master volume - this action disables the master volume and on a triple rectifier this is something you absolutely need. What you are left with when you bypass the loop (with the switch on the back of the amp) is that the CHANNEL master controls become the final output controls and this makes a massive difference to how you can drive the amp in the first place.

    I ALWAYS have the loop NOT bypassed and mine is always set to Foot Switch although you can use other settings if you want. Ill say this once more so it sinks in:

    DON'T BYPASS THE LOOP WITH THE SWITCH ON THE BACK OF THE AMP.

    Everything else is covered in the regular manual of the dual and triple recto, but because we are describing a triple rectifier I just wanted to go over the loop and why you leave it NOT bypassed. I sold my triple on ebay and the very next email I got from the guy was 'Hey this amp is way too loud even at the gig'. I suspected that he had turned off the loop as many guys do - and yes thats right - instant deafness!

    Always be careful when you are standing in front of a Mesa Boogie amp - they are typically loud and if you don't set things up right BEFORE you turn on the amp then you could get one very loud blast of sheer volume which could damage your hearing. Its all over the manuals. You CAN get the amp fixed but what value do you put on your hearing? When you are young its often said by older guys that they 'know it all'. I probably agree with that because when I was younger I knew it all too and was never convinced by those old fools; but I suppose as you get older you really do realise that those old dudes comments were built on years of experience.

    But seriously guys just be careful and enjoy these amps for a very long time to come because you can still hear them when you are old.

    Here's a little section from the Ultimate Metal Forum about loops:

    Originally Posted by Eventide
    In any of these scenarios, an FX loop might give an extra choice, particularly on more modern and better designed amps: SERIES or PARALLEL FX LOOP. The traditional FX LOOP is SERIAL, meaning that it is a real break between your combo's preamp and power amp! Consequences? Your preamped guitar signal will always go thru the digital converters of the connected FX processor and you'll need to use the processor FX balance (dry/wet mix) to set dry and wet (=FX) levels. The PARALLEL FX LOOP features a straight unbroken connection between the combo preamp and power amp, in parallel with a break between send/return , usually with a send level (to the FX inputs) and a mix level (an FX output level) or, more usually, this last level only. Consequences? Your preamped guitar signal goes straight to the power amp, untouched, unconverted into digital domain, staying as your main DRY signal...the real thing, dudes! Your FX processor output is managed in parallel to the dry sound, summed to it. The advantages are many: -signal levels are kept at their natural "levels" , without loosing that "in the face" energy you all desire! -tone preservation...you know what that is, don't you? Better signal/noise ratio!

    The only trade-off in PARALLEL FX loops is that typical IN SERIES treatments/FX, like compression/EQ/wah, will be mixed with your dry signal...and this is not what you want when using these FX. Suggestion: use compression/wah/EQ between guitar and amp input, using other gear. Hope: someday a clever guitar amp company will build an amp with switchable and remotable series/parallel FX loop...one day! If your combo amp does not have an FX loop...well, it must be a dinosaur with classic tones you love too much to upgrade to new technology. In such case the best advice is to have highly qualified guitar amp tech service to modify your amp, adding an FX loop; this is what most pros do. In case you don't want... you can only use your guitar > Eventide > amp front guitar input configuration, all unbalanced, on -10dB. This is probably the worst possible setup you can use as technology has evolved and necessary adjustments are required to interface "the bold & the beautiful." A serious "con" of this setup is the limitation on using amp distortion: In fact if you are getting your favorite distorted tone from a 1959 Marshall Plexi (no FX Loop amp!) you'll be in trouble as your delays and reverbs will be destroyed, nuked by your amp disto_tones. In this case, distortion pedals should be used between guitar and the Eventide. There are many other possibilities that pros use....quite expensive though, like miking an old amp and processing it on the PA..or having the "dinosaur" modified with an added line output that usually feeds digital effects units, going to a stereo power amps w/2 cabinets, strictly dedicated to effects. This 3-amps setup is also called Left FX/Center Dry/Right FX setup.
    I hope this little section on loops helps; sometimes they can be a real problem depending on what you are doing and with a TC G-System they can be a complete nightmare partially due to the appalling manual from TC-Electronics for the G-System.
