    Hi, I just have a quick and simple question - will there be any more updates to the Plethora X5?

    I've seen hundreds of recent posts clamouring for more frequent updates - as originally promised to customers as part of their purchase - that would continue to turn the Plethora into a true "Multi-FX" pedal. However I can't find any communication at all on this issue, and no updates for over a year now.

    Is there any roadmap or timeline here, or have the promises been abandoned?

      CSurieux I fear it's dead for more important updates :(

      BibsJ I am editing my post to echo the OP. It would be nice to know. Either way it's a good device if you can find one used for a decent price.

      BibsJ Hi TC Folks, any updates?

      Yes please, TC.

      I love TC Electronics gear and have spent hundreds over the years... but if promises get broken like this, and worst off you won't even reply honestly to the question... all I can do is throw it all in the bin, and advise everyone never to buy anything TC again.

      No updates for over a year and no responses to any emails in just as long. I'd say they've abandoned this project already.

    Hi, my bh250 owner amp has stopped working. All the other features (TonePrint, DI, eq and tuner) function, but I have nothing out of the Speakon connector. I unplugged it and removed the cover, then looked under the heat sink at the power chip. Oh my god! There is charting on the underside of the aluminium heat sink that looks like the components next to it have exploded. The heat compound has dried up, and it looks like this is what caused the problem. Is there any way to get a replacement board?

    Hi! I have a Shaker pedal, and I've misplaced the oversized screw that secures the bottom of the enclosure. Is there any way to order a replacement? Thanks!

    I turn it on and it lights up a weird set of lights and does not play. It's stuck in this mode. Clip light, TubeDrive Light, E and A tuner lights, Flat tuner light and Power light are all lit solid. No sound.

    Hi - can you take a look at this short vid and tell me what is wrong with my setup

    It's a Windows 10 64 bit set up - the software is all up to date.

    I have reinstalled the latest firmware to the Pletora unit & and I have re-downloaded the latest Toneprint software.

    Any thoughts much appreciated.

      NicJonesMT Hi PatrickTR1. Thank you for the video, I've watched it and think the best option would be to submit a tech support ticket (Click Support at the top of the page).

      Can you please provide the following in your ticket (Along with your video link) and we can then hit the ground running to try and get this sorted.

      1 - Please confirm the exact Toneprint app version you are using .
      2 - Please confirm the Firmware version on the Plethora (we need the version number).
      3 - Can you confirm the Windows Build and Version you are using (Found in "About your PC").
      4 - Please check all drivers and bios for your computer are up to date.
      5 - Have you tested on an alternative computer.
      6 - How are you connecting the Plethora to your computer.
      7 - If using USB, please confirm if you have tried connecting to a USB 2.0 Port directly to your computers Motherboard (Avoid any Hubs and adapters where possible).

      PedroRodrigues Hi kstolting, thank you for your post, if you have a MAC M1 running macOS 12.0.1 you will require to install ROSETTA 2 to allow your MAC M1 to interface with App's designed to interact with Intel Mac processors such as FINALIZER. Thank you

    Brand new pedal - will not store/save loops on the first 2 tracks.  From 3 on it saves them. Defective??

    Ditto stereo looper: It remains a bit difficult for me to do the "double tap" in order to stop the loop. Is there a way to set the stomp so that with only one tap the loop can be stopped? (it does not matter if i give up the overdub function)

    Thank you for your support

    • Leonex91
      NicJonesMT Hi Leonex91.
      It is possible to change how the pedal functions when you tap the switch, but unfortunately this does not change the double tap to stop function.

      Please see page 13 of the user manual for steps on how to switch the operation mode.
