      Hi Larry,

      Good to see you again. Don't know anything about this reverb. Just wanted to say hi.

      Hi Larry,

      the Reverb 4000 is a very versatile Reverb unit that includes all TC Reverb algos from the system 6000.(Vss3 , Vss4, DVR 2, Non Lin2 , Reverb4, Ambiator)

      Wether you want crisp short rooms for drums,  lush long reverbs for vocals or realistic simulations of acoustic spaces, the Reverb 4000 has you covered. 

      I recommend to try one out at your dealer of choice  one or watch some videos online , so you get a better idea about features and most important: the sound.

      The manual can be found here:

      Demo video from youtube: (just to get an idea)

      Best regard from the Tc people,

    I can't even begin to express my huge disappointment for what should have been a very promising product. The Plethora X5 SHOULD have been a great product, and when it was first released it seemed like TC's engineers were hard at work on implementing improvements and features in frequent firmware updates.

    Now - nothing.

    No new firmware updates in over a year.

    No responses to my emails.

    Radio silence on every Plethora thread on the forum.

    No MIDI clock.

    No standalone tap tempo.

    No improvements to subpar Corona Chorus, Viscous Vibe and Flashback Delay sounds.

    At this point the Plethora seems to be abandonware. I'm not expecting we will see any more updates to this product, and that's a real shame.

      PedroRodrigues Hi John-PierreConq, thank you for your post, please follow the link below to access the latest FW version 1.2 released on the 16 Sept 2021 .
      Please provide the case numbers where you did not receive any reply so we can analyse what happened.
      Regarding the Plethora X5 or even any other unit we have released over the years, we always kept working hard and depositing the same commitment, the same love and enthusiasm since day one and we will keep developing more tools for all our active units. For last we continuously analyse all the functions request and tools suggested by our customer and after a viability analysis we always try to include them on future updates.
      Thank you

    • John-PierreConq
      CSurieux PedroRodrigues thanks but the 16 Sept 2021 is only a 'cosmetic' update on a version that was lasting from 18 Dec 2020. The Release notes of this Sept version curiously contains no information on what has been changed, or I can't find it, all concerns the Dec 2020 version !!!
      Sorry but we were expecting more than just a new date on the file and a new subversion.

      PedroRodrigues Hi John and CSurieux

      I completely understand what you mean but worry not, we haven’t abandoned the Plethora X5 and we have a new update currently in the works which we hope to release very soon.

      Due to unfortunate challenges during supply chain difficulties that everyone in the industry has been facing over the past year, some of our engineering resources have been tied up on unforeseen emergency tasks which has unfortunately caused delays on the update development and release.

      Thank you for the feedback, new stuff is on the way.

    Hi guys,

    I'm having a problem sending midi program change data to my TC Electronic D-Two delay unit from Ableton. I'm using automation to change the program change numbers. Although the unit registers the data, as soon as the preset changes, it instantly reverts back to preset 1. It's also the same with bank changes, immediately back to factory bank. I've not come across this before & was wondering if anyone else has seen this? I also have the D-Two synced up to Ableton's tempo with midi timecode & that's working perfectly though. I just need to figure out how to change presets. It should be a simple process, but for some reason the D-Two isn't happy.

      Hi RooMcKeller,

      This is from the Manual ... could that be causing the issue ?

      Program bank

      Determines which bank an external MIDI device will address in the D•TWO when sending a program change. The options are: Factory, User or External. When External is selected controller #32 can be used to address either the Factory or the User bank.

      Factory bank: Controller #32=0

      User bank: Controller #32=1

      All the best from

    This might come across as a dumb question, but can someone please tell me the original actual cabinets that the cab sim options on the X5 are supposed to be simulating?

    I see the list of cab sims, but as a novice, I would love to know what style of cabs these are supposed to be simulating. 

    Jose 30, Vintage, Creamy, 65, Greenery, Bluey, Golden?

    • ruezz
      PedroRodrigues Hi ruezz please be aware that the new 1.2 firmware offers NEW CAB SIMS.
      This update added 9 new speaker cab simulations using a proprietary method, unique to Plethora X5. These cab sims let you transform your pedalboard into a DI ready rig for connection to a PA or recording interface.

      • Jose 30 4x12
      • Vintage 4x12
      • Creamy 4x12
      • 65 4x12
      • Greenery 4x12
      • Bluey 2x12
      • Creamy 1x12
      • Golden 1x12
      • BASS 1x15

      This is a GLOBAL setting and the CAB SIM will always be on, at the end of Plethora’s signal chain, whilst activated. To select a cab model and activate/deactivate, navigate to SETTINGS > GLOBAL > PRODUCT SETTINGS > CAB SIMULATION

    • ruezz
      ruezz Pedro, Thanks for the reponse. But I have already located the Cab Sims, i wanted to know what each setting is based off of. Fendder Open back? Marshall? Mesa Boogie? Celsestion Speakers? etc.

    I am not getting any sound out of user preset 3, and as a result am unable to upload/BEAM my chosen TonePrint to it.

    What am I missing?

      Hi pvautour

      The TonePrint in TonePrint Slot 3 is a volume swell effect, you need to MASH to get any sound out of the pedal. You can see it used right here:

      As for loading TonePrints, if you have a newer phone than iPhone 6, you need to use the top speaker in your phone, or hook the pedal up to a computer and use the TonePrint app. Here's a video on how to beam toneprints with newer phones:

      Hope this helps

    Hello, I've seen this topic come up a bit with similar requests for nova system but I don't see a current thread so I'm starting a new one. I bought a G system about 6 or more years ago and found it pretty deep to fully understand and at the time I just set it in a box and opted for my analog pedal rig that I had built. I recently joined a new band playing all original music and I felt it was time for a change of my tone and pulled out the G system again. 

    I have to say thank you to Laird and his incredibly useful and way overachieved (in a good way) unofficial manual, I now feel I have a pretty good grasp of whats going on in that thing. I have it connected the 4 cable method through the preamp loop on my fender blues deville 4x10 amp and it sounds really fricken good.

    Here's the problem, the band I play in has a drummer with an electronic kit and he keeps pushing for total volume control of our entire band so he is anti amps on stage. I tried to push back as much as possible but I am seeing the merit of not having to lug that amp from show to show. There is also a lot of new equipment out there and I was wondering if anybody has a good combination of a preamp and amp/cab simulators that could be wired in the 4 cable manor on the G so that the final output goes straight to a PA with no actual amp producing sound on stage?

    The way I would see this happening is that I would have a preamp pedal running through the insert loop on the G, then the out of the G would go into an amp/cab simulator that would go to the PA. Ideally the simulator would have XLR outputs? Does such a thing exist? And to take it one more step, I would like to go stereo out so I may have to have 2 identical amp/cab simulators.

    Does anyone have any successful experience with a setup like this and any hardware recommendations would also be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

      The Sansamp's amp simulation is pretty good. I've used one forever.

      Well I was hoping to have more feedback from the community but I spent a lot of time researching preamps and I found one that I think will be ideal. I wanted to share my find incase this question comes up again.

      I purchased a preamp today and once I get it in and hooked up and tweaked I will report back. I have high hopes that this will be the ultimate solution.

      Two-notes makes several preamp models, I went with the le-clean because it's said to mimic American style tube amps and I am trying to replace a Fender Blues Deville 4x10 combo.

      What sold me on the two-notes is a couple things;

      • There is an effects loop that is inserted after the preamp

        • I plan to connect the send on the G to the input on the Pre, the out on the Pre to the return on the G, the out on the G to the return on the Pre, then go XLR out of the Pre into the mixer, Viola the 4 cable method!

      • There is a cabinet simulator (preset for the model, no adjustment) after the fx loop return

        • this is a good starting point to have amp like sound with only one device

        • They also have a software driven cabinet simulator that can be inserted after the le-clean as an upgrade down the line (if needed)

      • The preamp is 2 channel and it can be selected through MIDI commands

        • both channels are true tube circuitry!

      I also looked at the but the price is a bit more than I was willing to dish out at this time. I would also need more hardware to get the cabinet emulation and DI to the mixer. If you have the cash though this is an awesome unit. It is also 2 channel and there is a channel select jack that you could wire into the relays on the G...

      Hello Theo. I'm experiencing a similar issue with my G-System iB Modified, I have a Green Screen and I tried the filter/comp combination and the system shows the message "AVR Boot V1.01" "0x00/0x00", the loop pedals getting power, also the red power led in the GFX01. But the blue link led doesn't shine.Thanks in advance.
