    Hi. i don't have the amp gizmo just yet but can someone please give me directions on how to wire this up. I've been looking around can't seem to find anything on this setup and haven't got the slightest clue on how to start. I have a midi mate as my controller. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

    Hi Nova users
    I'm new in the forum but has the Nova System time ago...
    One question. Is better to set the amp volumen high and the volume in the nova system in -dB or the amp with less volume and the nova system at 0dB? Does the sound change? I use drive input.
    Thanks

      sergey_ratz In fact what is more important is output level 2db - 8db ... 20db

      I believe it does changes internal impedance and may significantly impact on sound.



      It is better to use 0db output.



      I'd suggest to use output adjust when (for example) you need slightly reduce output for some reason - about -3 -10dB. Because it is about digital resolution finally.

      xjulia THANKS

      but there's no 0dBu in the output range... did you mean 0dB in the volume?

    when setting up my GM2 for to be able to switch effects on and off(stomp box mode?), would I be using two midi cables, one from my Yamaha mfc 10 midi out to my GM2 midi in and another from my GM2 midi out to the footswitch midi in? or how exactly does it have to be connected to be able to do this? the Yamaha owners manual is essentially useless in explaining this and the GM2 owners manual doesnt really cover it all that well either IMO. I would love to hear from anyone using these two components together how to make it work.

    Thanks for your time and have a great day!

      TC-Mike Hi Jamie,



      in order to toggle the G-Majors FX on/off you need just one Midi cable from the Midi out of your controller to the Midi In of the G-Major2, so it can receive the Midi controller information and Program changes (to changes patches) send from your pedal.



      Then you have to set up to which Midi controller number the G-Major's FX block should react, which can be done in the Mod menu. you can also use the Midi learn function for this, which is explained in the manual.



      It might also be a useful thing to set up one of the Pedals switches to "Tap tempo" to you can easily adapt time based effects FX to different song tempos.

      jaybic Thanks for the reply Mike. I have read that it can do these things but what I was hoping to find was some difinitive instructions as to HOW to get it to do these things, kinda like button push by button push instructions or examples because I am getting nowhere with this thing. I am running a Yamaha mfc10 foot controller to run both my GM2 and my Marshap JMP1 preamp and the ONLY thing I have managed to talk any of this stuff into doing is being able to switch patches. It just seems that the owners manual is very vague and seems to assume that as a user/users, we know more that we do or the owners manual is written by the guy that designed to TO the guy that designed it and not the buying public. Seems like the manual should be 2 inches thick with all sorts of illustrations and step by step pictorial instructions. I have to admit that I am not very savvy with this and maybe that is the cause of my frustration and the Yamah pedal is no better. I call them, they tell me to call tc support. I call tc support and leave a message, and get no return call. right now I kinda have 1000.00 dollars worth of high tech stuff that is of no more use to me that the simple Boss pedals I started with 25 years ago. Anyway, thanks to any of you that may have ANY insight at all that you might be willing to share and have a great day!

      lento This is the way I do it ......



      I'll first explain that I use the Yamaha's top row of footswitches for "stompbox mode" in the TC and the bottom row for programme changing my Triaxis preamp.

      Next step is for the Yamaha to be switched to "mix" mode (Function switch on the back panel). This allows the top and bottom rows to do both stompbox mode and programme change, otherwise you'll only have programme change available.



      Midiwise connect the Yamaha "out" to the preamp "in" then "thru" to the TC "in". Set the midi channels of the TC and your preamp to 3 & 1 respectively.



      Now for the TC set-up.



      In the MOD menu, assign the REV On/Off to CC 83 (for example) DLY CC 82, CHO CC 81 and so on for all the effects.



      For the Yamaha set-up we'll assign footswitch 6 to the Delay - it goes like this:



      Press footswitch 6 (display should read F06, led should be flashing)

      Press memory edit (Status led flashing) and press inc/yes or dec/no buttons until "b2" is displayed. This is Control change assigned to midi channel 3.

      Press memory edit again (data /control flashing) and scroll until "082" is displayed. This is the CC number corresponding to what the TC Delay has been assigned.

      Press memory edit again (Bank/MSB) scroll until "127" is displayed.

      Press memory edit again (Bank/LSB) scroll until "000" is displayed.

      Press memory edit again (Toggle ON/Off) scroll until "on" is displayed.



      Now write this to memory.

      Repeat this procedure for footswitches 7,8,9,0 assigning the CC number accordingly.

      You will then have 5 "stompbox mode" effects assigned to the top row (more memories are available via the function footswitch)



      Meanwhile the bottom row (footswitches 1,2,3,4,5) can programme change your preamp.



      Press footswitch 1 (display reads 11)

      Assign the "Status" to "C0", this is programme change assigned to Midi Channel 1.

      "Data/Control" setting should correspond to your required programme number on your preamp.

      "Bank/MSB & Bank/LSB" should be assigned "off".



      Mush more is possible from the Yamaha controlling the TC (especially using the footpedal) but it's all there in the manual - just takes a bit of time to digest ......



      Good luck.

      TC-Mike Thanks for chiming in Lento! I never used the MFC-10, but it seems once you changed the buttons to send Midi CC controllers, setup is much easier.

    I just bought VLTouch 2 used and all seems to work fine. Updated firmware. I'm using a Shure Beta 87A condenser mic and the mic setting is condenser.

    Trying to follow video manuals but in the 2nd one about connections, I tried to set mic level input as Craig did and I do not see any level indicators except for when input level control knob is turned all the way and it's just blasted feedback at that point.

    I hear vocals just fine but I want to be able to confirm via level indicator.

    Can someone please advise?

    Thanks!

      TCH-Spencer Hey Chad,

      First I should ask if your mic input on the right side of the Touch 2 is turned up? There's a little dial on the side of the Touch 2, and with it at its minimum position, you can still hear what's coming in the mic but the LEDs will not light up yet. You need to get pretty loud, so turn up the mic gain and see if that will make the input LEDs light up? What you're looking for is three little LEDs (green, yellow, red) just to the left of the "INPUT" text in the top-right corner of the screen.

      CecilieKaasgaar Hey Chad & Spencer, my VLT2 is the same - the input level dial has to be touching on max before my baseline singing level registers a green dot on the LED. At this point if I sing any louder it'll distort in the headphones (I haven't been able to test the main outputs) and hit orange/red with little or no volume increase from my voice. If I set the input to a nice level in the headphone output, it's too low to register on the LEDs at all. So Chad unless you get no level indicator even with the dial cranked (remember, it's an input gain dial, not an output/volume dial) it's probably acting normal, even if it seems strange. (I'd personally prefer the input LED to register green on all input to make sure there wasn't a glitch or issue, but that's another discussion : )

    Hi,
    new to this board. i'm looking for a template for a multi-tap delay for Alter Ego x4. anyone familiar with something like this?
    thanks

    • drburns73
      TC-Mike You can only have a maximum of 2 tap delays and those can be dialed in using the your subdivision toggle switch

      (quarter notes Left and dotted 8th on right side)
      • September 27, 2018
    • drburns73
      drburns73 Thanks for the reply. Is this the maximum of all TC pedal delays? or just the Alter Ego x4?

    Hi Everyone!

    I am currently experimenting with my new Play Acoustic to find the settings that work best for my application. I find that I benefit from a small amount of pitch correction, but I would like to be able to turn it on/off via foot switch by moving to a different preset or pressing HIT. I struggle to keep long notes in tune while moving around, but I also talk while playing guitar, so it would be nice to be able to turn it on/off via foot-switch.

    The "correct natural" in the hardtune block is much too pronounced for my application, although I do like that it can be set to a certain key. The chromatic auto pitch correction in the input menu works great for me at 30%, but I can not figure out a way to toggle it on/off. So I have these two questions:

    1. Can the "correct natural" effect be modified to make it less pronounced?

    or

    2. Can the chromatic pitch correction somehow be toggled on/off via presets or HIT switch?

    Thanks to anyone who is able to offer input!

    Chris

      1) you can reduce globally the mix of the vocal effects in the mix menu (harmony parameter) which would make the pitch natural effect less pronounced, but also all other effects - p. 58 in the play acoustic manual.



      2) no, pitch correct can only be controlled via the setup menu. If you don't play guitar, you "could" press and hold the hit button to get the TALK feature which removes all effects.



      I've played around with the pitch correct, and for someone who is tone deaf, the best option is to use the mono output option and completely muting the dry vocals on the mixer board. That cuts out the dry vocals completely and the mixed ones don't sound too electronic (from my experience) to the main speakers out. The person singing will hear himself or herself double. The only downside is your wet vocals and guitar end up on the same channel.



      In my case, a singer/guitar player in my band became very hard of hearing and hearing himself is sometimes a challenge with the hearing aid and possible feedback, etc. We set the natural correct on the hit on for on demand key correction. Each of his songs has a hard tune preset with the key stored into the presets with wichever other fx he wants for that particular song (usually a plate reverb). We seldomly use the harmony effects.



      In-ear monitors with noise cancelling headphones would have ben the optimal solution, but given the budget, wwe already had the machine.



      its not perfect, but it works. It took a while to tweak.







      P.s. Don't play harmonica with pitch correct on!

    Hello,

    This may sound stupid I don't know, I was planning On making a live rig for bass
    I was going to set up as follows Bass> Boss GT8> ULTRACURVE PRO> Power Amp> Cab
    But I don't need to add distortion to the signal or anything just comp, and EQ and thought of completely ditching the GT8 Effects unit for A super simple set up, I can't see why this would not work, an Ultracurve Pro is basically a pre amp right?

      Paul_Vannatto If I remember correctly (unfortunately, I've sold my DEQ2496) only the RTA mic in has a preamp. The main LR inputs are line level only (no ability to change to mic level in setup).



      :edit: Welcome to the forum, btw

    Hi there,

    I recently got the g system and a fv500h and I have tried to get it to work as a volume pedal. However the best I can do is have full volume when the pedal is up and 0 volume when pedal is down(end position). Can anyone help me?


    Fyi when I first use it and tried to calibrate it both min and max was at 0 no matter What I did with the pedal. so yeah any help?

      I use this as expression pedal. Had to take a y-adapter TRS->2 TS and use the input/output jacks, not the expression pedal jack. The Poti on the side is set MIN (left). The red plug must be inserted to input (I think its the Tip of TRS). So you can calibrate the full range 0-100 or 0-97 etc.

      Also had problems to calibrate. If it says set minimum (you take the pedal back) and press enter, nothing happens pressing enter, but it automatically says set maximum (pedal move to max) press enter, also nothing happens, after a while calibration done... and it works. Maybe similar with use as volume pedal, there i also use a y-cable

    Hi,

    I am trying to get the vocoder in my vl3x to follow midi notes sent to it from Ableton from my mac.

    The midi is getting in, but the vocoder only seems to operate when I shout, and then just for very short bursts.

    I have read on this forum that it may in fact not be possible to run the internal synth on the vocoder from external midi ... is this the case? If this is so then it's a terrible deal breaker for me. The only reason I went ahead and bought the vl3x instead of cheaper units was the published ability to use a vocoder.

    Surely it must be possible to sort this out???

    Is there a way around this? Is there something I am missing?

    Many thanks for any help you can offer!

    Andy

      Hey Andy,

      Which effect are you using exactly? One of the Synth effects, right? You say that you can tell midi data is getting in - is this because you have the Note Source set to midi and you can hear it trying to work? So is the only issue you're having the fact that you have to sing loudly for the effect to work?
