    Hello,

    On the Plethora X5, I would like to kick off the echo while having it finish the last decaying echoes versus just a hard stop of sound.  Is this possible via the Toneprint app?  I have tried to find where I would allow echos to ring after turning off effect but can't find anything. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

      PedroRodrigues Hi gman5920 please consider that you just need to set your Plethora to "buffered bypass" to get Delay/reverb spill-over . Set it under : GLOBAL SETTINGS/PRODUKT SETTINGS/BYPASS TYPE) I hope this helps.

    Hello,
    I recently got a TC Electronic Plethora X5 and I'm loving it. I played with it for some time and now decided to tweak some of the settings on my computer... and I couldn't be more dissapointed.

    First: the user manual for the Toneprint app doesn't even mention the plethora, the plethora itself comes with quick start guide and no detailed manual. Why?

    Second: the toneprint app seems to be completely unprepared for interacting with plethora, I have the boards tab, that I can use for renaming and reordering the boards, which I will use for reordering the boards if I want it or not, because if you are past the first 10 or 15 boards every single click will reorder the board you clicked to a random spot in the first 10. It cannot do anything else, or I'm completely missing something. Can I delete, duplicate, create new board in the toneprint app? Most importantly: can I edit the board I have created? Can I at least edit the effect in realtime and tweak the settings to see what works? The toneprint app seems to completely not utilise the fact that the communication with the Plethora is two way. It works on the single fx pedals, so I really expected it here.

    I'm frustrated and extremely dissapointed :(

     

    Running plethora at build 1.2.18, Toneprint app at 4.4.03, and mac on catalina 10.15.7

      StaceyBaum I feel your pain Maciej. I also struggled with the reording of the boards on my Mac. When I used the app on my iPad I found it was less touchy. This forum is a great spot to voice your concerns, suggestions and questions. They do listen and want to help.

      WilliamR Hello Maciej, I highly recommend watching the plethora tutorial videos by Pedal Platform. They are very helpful.

        Azarazu Now I understand. I'm still unhappy with board management in the app and limited communication from the plethora to the app, but at least I understood the basics of how to really program that thing.


        TC - you should hire Philippe from Pedal Platform to do some official tutorials for you.

    This pedal just rocks! But nothing is perfect. It has in two disadvantages for some:

    - huge
    - no battery compartment

    The input stage has a noise gate, where you can set the threshold but not the decay. Not perfect but comes in quite handy.

    You have two knobs for gain and master. The master volume works in a very clean way. The gain knob gives you the gain of a tube stage. From a tiny bit of crunch, a little more saturation to full distortion is there everything.

    The tone control consists of three knobs. Some folks hear some mid scooping, but I don't. You can easily take treble and bass down, if you want even more mids.

    The build quality is very decent. It has a sturdy metal case and the potis feel smooth.

    Best of all the flexibility of the sound. You can use them as booster to drive a tube amp into saturation or dial the tone of it's own real tubestage. And everything in between.

    And you can change the tube. I fine with mine, but you can find on youtube folks changing the tubes, getting something really impressive:

    I got that Behringer SF300 fuzz pedal for a bass in combination with an octaver.

    This fuzz just does the job. I would have loved an additional blend knob, but the original Boss FZ-2 did not have one so the SF300 does not have one either.

    Steve Reis from "Does It Doom?" compared here both pedals and they are damn close:
    This is a very nice pedal, but it has (as the original) no subtlety. You can't dial in just a little bit effect, as you can do on some overdrives. When this thing is on, you get instant fuzz effect.
