    I was wondering if it would be possible to change the footswitches on certain effect types to momentary switches instead of toggle? Would be really handy for pitch effects like sub'n'up.

    Hi, just picked up a Plethora x5, loving it so far.

    One thing i wanted it to ask, can it be run in dual mono mode. 2 discreet channels that will both get the same signal?

    The reason is i want to run one side of the plethora in my Red witch titan loop?

      Hi Mutantbigman200.
      At this moment there is no Dual Mono mode available on the Plethora. However the Development team have logged this as a feature request.

    Needed additions to Plethora X5:

    1. Mojomojo drive

    2. Spark boost

    3. Ditto looper (I know it has the tape looper, but it doesn't work like a Ditto)

    Long time lover and user of TC Electronic goods and fan of John Petrucci. When the two created this downloadable patch, I couldn't wait to try it out. 

    Starting with a Flashback Mini in 2017, it never worked on that unit. Buying a full sized Flashback and whether "Beaming" it or USB cabling it, I could never use that patch. All other Toneprints worked (at the time) just not the "Mountain Top". 

    I acquired another full sized Flashback just a day ago. And whether "Beamed" or USB'd, the "Mountain Top" patch will not work. I only hear one of the delays, not two. 

    I work in a music store and saw a Flashback 4X. Not sure what year it's from, I tried to "Beam" some patches. Two worked, but the "Mountain Top" still didn't. All that is heard is one delay. Not two. 

    I can see on the TonePrint app, there are two new John Petrucci tones doing pretty much the same thing as the "Mountain Top" but are called "Axe-FX 1" and "Axe-FX 2". Both of which my standard V1 Flashback can not download either of those two, as well as the original "Mountain Top". But my unit can download other Toneprints. 

    I believe the "Mountian Top" patch needs to be looked at by the Devs and see if an update can be made. Since 2017, and a total of 4 Flashback units, I have never been able to enjoy that patch. 

    I have updated the TonePrint Editor app on my phone and cpu. I don't know how to update the pedal itself. 

    I do hope I get some replyies as to why I can not use this patch. But most of all, I hope TC Elcetronics can fix the patch to be used. 

    Thanks in advance.

      PedroRodrigues Hi Dpicetti77, thank you for your post, I would first suggest updating your FLASHBACK X4 pedal by following the guidance below and then attempt to Beam the selected TONEPRINT.
      Preparing the unit for firmware update
      – Download the newest firmware from the “Support” page by following the link below:

      There are updaters:

      – for Microsoft Windows (these are ZIP archives containing the firmware installer) and
      – for OS X (these are disk image files containing the firmware installer).

      – Unplug all cables (including the power supply) from your TC pedal.
      – Connect the pedal to your computer using a USB cable.
      – Press and hold the leftmost footswitch on your TC pedal.
      – Insert the DC power supply plug.
      – The leftmost LED on your pedal should turn green. This indicates that the pedal is ready to receive the software update.
      – Release the footswitch.
      – Your TC pedal will now be recognized as an updatable device

      Applying the firmware update
      – Quit all MIDI-related applications (e.g. your
      DAW) on your computer and launch the firmware updater you have downloaded above.
      – In the firmware updater app, select your TC pedal from the drop-down list under the “STEP 1” heading.
      – When the “Update” button under the “STEP 2” heading turns green, click it. The updated firmware will now be transferred to your TC pedal.
      Wait for the progress bar to reach 100%. When the update procedure is complete, the pedal will automatically restart.
      Thank you

    Last Christmas, I bought my son a used ND1 Nova Delay. It sounds great and worked fine until last week, when it started making popping sounds when used for a prolonged time. And doesn't matter if ir is engaged or not. My San has to unplug the pedal, wait a minute and re plug it, for the oedam to start working again. Can this be fixed?

      PedroRodrigues Hi Pipus, thank you for your post, in this case before moving in to the service stage I would first suggest performing a Restore to factory reset following the guidance below:
      To restoring the factory settings your NDR-1 Nova Drive, just simply power on while simultaneously holding the PRESET button. The Factory Reset procedure is complete.
      Warning! This procedure will return all of the settings to the values when the NDR-1 was shipped from the factory. Be sure that you want to do this.
      If after the Restore to Factory Reset is concluded and you still face the same issue reported on your post, I would the suggest following the link below and submit a service Request directly with our Service Team:

      Thank you

    I recently updated the Plethora X5 firmware to 1.3.11 and I no longer am getting any sound.

    Is it possible to reinstall the firmware or can I step down to a previous version? Would a factory reset also put the firmware back to its original state?

      PedroRodrigues Hi Arpeggio11, thank you for your post, in this case I would suggest following the guidance present on the FW update document for the PLETHORA X5 that you can access by following the link below:
      If you follow the guidance to update your unit and you still identify the same behaviour as you reported, this may indicate that your PLETHORA X5 may be stuck in boot mode.
      In this case you must follow the guidance and the tools to unlock your unit:

      Thank you

    Hello - 

    I powered up my new/out of the box Plethora X5 and it appeared to be on. Thereafter, I unplugged it. I then plugged in the power supply again in an effort to download the new firmware update but it's now not showing signs of life?!

    Did I do somethinng wrong and/or is there something I can do at this point to power it back up?

It is also important to confirm that you have configured your M3000 following the MIDI Sysex specifications that I will also leave you a link to download on this post. I hope this helps. Thank you

    I have the Hypergravity pedal, I know a long time ago I edited a patch and uploaded it to the pedal, but now I don't know which one it was or what the perameters are when I connect to my Mac on the Toneprint software.

    Is there anyway to view this?

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi Karlitofingers, unfortunately, there is no way to view the currently installed TonePrint on your pedal via the editor.
