    So I just got a plethora x3 running in my mesa loop and kicked off my tuner, delay, reverb, nova modulator and harmonizer. I could kick off my compressor, noise gate and drop, but mine are significantly better and in front of chain so keeping them there. Chorus undecided.

    Anyway, I really like it and has all the effects I need and more.

    Question is on the pitch shifter (Brainwaves). Using the Wham toneprint as an example, no matter what I set the mix at, the level for the pitch shifting is very low, almost like it's in the background. I updated the firmware, and even tried to edit my own toneprint but really didn't know what I was doing there. When the effect is engaged, there's no volume drop, but as you "mash" the second voice is shifted, but I'd like it to be equal level as the dry signal. I can't figure out why it's so weak.

    Any tips or ideas?

    Thanks!

    Mike

      PedroRodrigues Hi mike73229, thank you for your post, in this case I would suggest to check
      Pedal Platform's video on "A better whammy experience for the PLETHORA X5 & Brainwaves" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QG0TXDK-dP8 . For last please make sure that you throw it before a preamp and it'll do the job. I hope this helps. Thank you

    I'm looking for input for settings for my Flashback 2 pedal for Blues Harmonica.

    I am just using a Flashback 2 Delay for now. I used to combine it with the MoJo MoJo overdrive pedal, but that seems to add excessive feedback.

    I'm trying to achieve that "Bluesy Crunch"

    Any advice on Harmonicas and pedals would be appreciated.

    Keep on Jamming!

    Hi,

    New here. Can somebody provide me the links and instructions to update my gmajor 2 firmware?

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi Jchybris2019, does your G-Major 2 have a S/PDIF I/O? If so can you please check and confirm the current firmware version you are using, if this is on 1.02 you are running the latest version for your model.
      If your G-Major 2 doesn't have a S/PDIF I/O 1.03 is the latest version.

    I have Mastering 6000 mk1. I want to buy a stereo reverb license. Will it work on my hardware?

    • ilyapatt
      PedroRodrigues Hi ilyapatt Thank you for your post, please consider that the Stereo Mastering License includes three algorithms: MD3, MD4 and BrickWall Limiter 2. It contains Limiter, Optimizer and Stereo Enhancer presets, emulation of the Cat43 for real-time noise removal, and presets to reduce distortion at the end listener. Supported on MK I and MK II units. Please follow the link below to access our TC WEBSTORE where you will be able to acquire this licence https://store.tcelectronic.com/system-6000-licenses/ I hope this helps. Thank you

    Hi all,

    I wanted to try out the Brian May Chorus1 toneprint, so I beamed it to the Dreamscape pedal I have. But it didn't do anything. No effect was audible, turning knobs or moving the brightness switch didn't yield any change.

    Unfortunately we cannot see the settings in the editor because editing is locked for the artist toneprints. After reading some messages on the internet I downloaded an old toneprint editor version and made the toneprint editable so that I could check it and change the settings.

    Speed and Depth knobs aren't linked to anything. The brightness switch is linked to HiCut, but the curve is flat at the bottom, so whatever switch position you chose the HiCut is always 20Hz. And that's why the toneprint doesn't work, you only get the dry signal.

    The other settings are in the ballpark of the G-Major 2 settings that can be seen here, but not exactly the same: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMyXtpsabrY

    I think hiding the artist toneprint settings away from the users is a bad idea, it's a major hinderance. Not customer friendly at all. Checking why the toneprint doesn't work cost quite a bit of my time. Don't see why this was neccessary.

     

    Anyway, maybe somebody at TC can please double-check the toneprint and - if indeed the HiCut switch settings are wrong - fix them.

    Best regards,

    Seb

    Bought it a year ago and now it won't turn on. I've checked the power supply and connections. Any ideas for troubleshooting?

    • mattmcl88
      WilliamR Please be sure you use a dc 9-volt minimum 100mA negative tip power supply. If you are using a multi-power supply, try isolating it to just your ditto looper to see if it powers on.

    Hi i'd like to ask if anybody was able to tweak a toneprint for their amp. I'd like to change the eq of the drive because it doesn't sound great on my bass and even using the amp eq it doesn't sound better.

    Is there a natural minor template available for the Quintessence? I only see harmonic minor...

    • guitarch
      PedroRodrigues Hi guitarch, thnak you for your post, please consider that the QUINTESSENCE HARMONY comes pre-loaded with various major and minor scales commonly used in modern music, the pedal will then harmonize your played notes according to the key and structure of your chosen scale.
      if you choose the “3rd” setting with the HARMONY knob, select “IOmaj” (Ionian Major) with the SCALE knob, and then play up the scale from the root note of the key, QUINTESSENCE will automatically generate the following major or minor 3rd harmonies as dictated by the Ionian Major scale:
      M-m-m-M-M-m-m
      *M = major 3rd; m = minor 3rd

      Similarly, if you switch the SCALE knob to “AEmin” (Aeolian Minor) and play up the scale, QUINTESSENCE will generate the following 3rd harmonies:
      m-m-M-m-m-M-M
      Along these same lines, if you then switch the HARMONY knob to the “3rd-5th” setting, the harmonies generated in Aeolian Minor by QUINTESSENCE will be the major and minor chords native to the Aeolian Minor scale:
      minor-minor-Major-minor-minor-Major-Major
      Here is a table of the pre-loaded scales available in QUINTESSENCE:

      Please note that all of the scales with flattened 7th scale degrees (Dorian, Phrygian, Mixolydian, Aeolian and Locrian) have been programmed so that the natural 7th degree is also available when the music calls for a half-step resolution up from the 7th degree to the root note of the scale.
      This type of resolution is common in modern “mixed-mode” music, so the natural 7th is handy to have in case you need it.
      When using the TonePrint Editor, you can also program the SCALE knob’s “CUSTOM” setting with scales of your own choosing. Possible substitute scales for unusual harmonies include:
      Lydian Dominant (1-2-3-#4-5-6-b7),
      Whole Tone (1-2-3-#4#5-b7)
      Whole-Half Diminished (1-b2-b3-3-4-b5-6-b7)

      I hope this makes it clear.

      Thank you

      Sorry, but that's a confusing mess of a response. I now see (with a flashlight) a tiny, tiny 'm' next to the 'AE' on the SCALE knob. That works, Aeolian is natural minor.

    I haven't heard from anyone for days on your end. I'm supposedly waiting for someone to get back about warranty claim. My flashback 2 is not playing dry signal at any time. I need it back on my board for gigs! Please update thanks.

      Hi room335, thank you for your post, please ponder that the dry signal is sent out of both outputs all the time as Flashback and the other TonePrint pedals are true stereo. This means that they have sensors on both the stereo input and output.
      If Flashback is connected in stereo on the input side it will process the effect in stereo.
      If it’s connect Mono In and Stereo Outputs ping-pong delay as well as the dual delay option, quarter note + dotted eight, will be split to the two outputs any modulation that is added will also be stereo.
      Connected in Mono on the Input of Flashback will sum the two-delay signal and send them out via Mono Output so you can still get the benefit of the dual delay. I hope this helps. Thank you

      I would suggest that you first confirm how the DIP switch on the back is set up.
      When you activate Kill-dry, the direct signal is removed from the pedal’s output.
      You can only remove the dry signal from the signal path if you have selected Buffered Bypass mode using the upper DIP switch, as you see below, as Kill-dry is not available in True Bypass mode.
      To gain access to the two-small dip-switches, you must disconnect the pedal and turn it on its back.
      Unscrew the back plate of the pedal and look for the two-small dip-switches in the upper left corner. I hope this helps. Thank you
