    I know it is an older discontinued unit.  What is the latest firmware update for d-two and how do I download it?

      PedroRodrigues Hi MikeSwift, please be aware that the latest Firmware available for the D-TWO is version 1.05 that you can access by following the link below:

      MikeSwift Are there instructions to update the firmware? The manual doesn't have any instructions

      PedroRodrigues Hi Mike, please be aware that the MIDI information that you transfer during the upload, is in the so-called SysEx format. It's a sort of binary code, that can cary system information. Thus, the MIDI code IS the software.
      The upload procedure requires a PC with a standard MIDI Interface, and an application capable of sending .syx files, for instance the freeware application MIDI-OX, which is available from the MIDI-OX website.
      Your existing user presets should not be affected by the update, but we suggest that you make a safety backup as described in the user manual.
      Important: before starting the upload procedure, please quit any MIDI related application on your PC, other than MIDI-OX.
      Connect the PC MIDI-Out to the D-Two MIDI-In socket.
      Press and hold the EDIT and "Arrow Up" keys during power up to enter the service menu.
      The D-Two display will read: "D-TWO 1.06 FRONT 1.6Dial the wheel and choose "Download DSP code
      Press the ENTER key to confirm. The display will now read "Downloading code" and "000" in the upper right corner.
      Start MIDI-OX. Choose view/sysex. In the sysex window, choose send sysex, and browse to select the D-Two .syx file, and press ok.
      You should now see the D-Two numerical display counting as well as a progress bar on your PC screen.
      Important: after the upload has finished, you MUST wait (up to 1 minute) until the D-Two display reads "D-TWO 1.06 FRONT 1.6" again.
      Reboot ("POWER" off/on) the D-Two using the front panel Power switch. During startup, the D-Two will now read ">D Two version 1.05<".
      You have now successfully uploaded the new application software to your D-Two.
      Troubleshooting: after otherwise successful load, the D-Two does not go back to "D-TWO 1.06 FRONT 1.6": Reboot the D-Two and retry load procedure.
      Error 9: Reboot the D-Two and retry load procedure.
      Error 1: Reboot the D-Two and retry load procedure.
      In case of persistent errors, disconnect the power cable to the D-Two for 10 seconds, then connect it again and retry the upload procedure.
      If error persists even after the power has been removed, the D-Two MIDI speed may have been set wrongly.
      Enter the service menu as described above.
      Choose the menu item "Change MIDI speed ?", and press ENTER.
      If the display does not read "MIDI speed: 31250 * ", then press "BYPASS" to make this text appear; then press ENTER to confirm.
      Reboot the D-Two and retry the upload procedure.

    I purchased a vicious vibe pedal off of eBay. Programming it to my guitar doesn't seem to make much difference. Once I beam the sound to the pickup the stumble turns red after it says it worked. Shouldn't it turn green if it was a successful beam. Please let me know if it is working correctly or it may be not working right.

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi bloodtohead, yes that would be correct. If at any point during the beaming process the LED flashes red this means the process has failed. Here are a few things you may want to try:

      Ensure the pedal is on the latest firmware version, firmware updates will be available from the product page on the website.
      If you are currently using a phone to beam the Toneprint try attempting this from the Toneprint editor for PC and MAC and see if it works this way.
      If using a guitar or bass with active pickups ensure your tone knob is turned all the way down (so that the treble is completely rolled off). The preamp in active pickups can introduce a slight bit of distortion to the beamed signal, which can cause the beaming process to fail.

    • bloodtohead
      TC-Mike red Led indicates that transfer didn't work. Please make also sure that there are no active FX prior to VV pedal, as this will alter the beaming file unreadable . Can you confirm that you have selected a TP slot when beaming?

    Is anyone else experiencing an issue where if you change the value of an effect in the Tone Print editor (say the delay time), when you save it (with the Plethora connected via USB), it reverts back to the original settings for the effect?

    However, if you change it on the Plethora (and watch it change in the Tone Print editor) and save it, it is saved.

    I am using the latest Tone Print software (4.4.03) and Plethora X5 Firmware (1.2.18) to the best of my knowledge.

    It does this for every effect, change something, tweak away on the Tone Print editor and then BAM all your changes and tweaks gone.  Angry! :-)

      TC-Mike when you store the TonePrint in your Plethora and load it without the app the potmeter positions on the board will set the parameters and NOT the value you set in the app at the time of saving unless you used the pots on the pedal to adjust the modifiers , so app and pedal are in sync at the time of saving. Please remember that you are not making a preset , but customize the functions of the pedal including value arnges.... With regards to delay time there are some strategies you can use when you want to have your delay tonePrint use a specific tempo in ms :
      1) eg map delaytime value to 12 o'clock (mid) postion of the potmeter (mapping page) and consider setting curve point 2 + 4 to same value , so it is easy to dial in this specific tempo by roughly setting pot to 12 o'clock possition
      2) Once you stored your TonePrint on the board, set the potmeters on pedal to correct values in EDIT mode before switching board or diting other slot TonePrints and it will be auto-stored on the board (FB2 slot)

      Best regards; Mike

      • Issues saving TonePrint changes from computer (Mac) to the Plethora X5
        pwmcmaho Thanks TC-Mike for the response... I am totally confused by something.

        Two questions:

        1. How can I create and audition Toneprints with my X5? Whenever I pick a pedal in the Tone Print Editor, with my X5 connected via USB and in edit mode, so I can audition the changes, when I go to save the tone print, it is always reverted to the settings on the X5....

        2. When I pick a stored Tone Print in the Editor, for example a User Tone Print, and select store in board, the Tone Print in the Editor is updated with whatever the settings are in the board... that seems completely backwards! Again in that scenario, the board is in edit mode and connected via USB.

        Something in my understanding of the workflow just does not make sense.

        In a nutshell, I just simply want to dial in my exact settings in the Tone Print editor, while auditioning them to make sure they sound correct and then store them in the Tone Print Editor and put them into a specific slot on a board. However that seems completely not possible with the basic workflow that I am using....

        Thanks!

    HI all,

    First, I am digging the X5.  Love being able to stack multiple reverbs and delays for incredible sounds.  However, I do have an issue when trying to add toneprints to a board.  When I use the app on my iPhone to send the toneprint to the X5, it displays the message that the toneprint was sent.  However, the toneprint does not show up on the board.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

      TC-Mike Hi, which version of the TonePrint app and firmware are you using? are you trying to store an artist ToenPrint or a custom TonePrint Template with edited parameters/mappings.? When you modify any Template and store it you will also store the TonePrint in the app Please check wether your stored TonePrint is shown under the user TonePrint view of the app.? Are you using BT connection or USB via a camera connection kit to connect to app? best regards, Mike

    The light that indicates that the reverb is engaged comes on when you push the engage button even though no cable is attached to line in. Shouldn't the light come on only when a cable is plugged into line in? Is my pedal malfunctioning?

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi jojo7mr, this is standard operation for the HoF along with our other pedals and is not considered a sign your unit is malfunctioning.

    Hi,

    I hope the next firmware will be soon, in beg march would be great, because after I receive another multi-effects linux engine to test and PX5 could suffer. without noticeable improvements (global tempo, ext clock sync, etc.).
    I hope this new firmware will bring the feature I suggest :  for each board, all the pedals which use the exp pedal could display the % they use rather than a simple pedal picture.
    To make it simple, let's say that the % should replace the picture as soon as the exp is pressed, but if you can read the exp position on board activation, it's better.

    Concerning the Volume, the % should be displayed in the area where it is applied.


    Please vote for this.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    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?

    Thanks!

      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 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.

    Man, I’m having the worst time with a brand new Nova system. Right now, as I type, I’m looking at the new unit frozen on the startup screen. I’ve hard booted it several times, same thing. I like the box but I’m going to have to remove it from my board. I can’t depend on it. Even when I finish soundcheck and walk back out on stage to do the show, it freezes in the middle of a song!!! OMG!!! Sorry TC but I need a solid resolution or this thing becomes a boat anchor! Anyone else experience this? Any advice?

        Dbmeinc Thanks Kyle, I appreciate the reply. I already have a support ticket on this but nothing’s happening. I just spent a large part of the week wiring up my board with the Nova System. I have 2 gigs this weekend and more coming up. We’re about to get busy and I’m afraid to take it out. It’s failed me since the day I got it. Froze up on startup, froze up in the middle of a show! Man, it’s a mess! If you have the authority to move this along, I’d appreciate it. Thanks again for the direction.

    Is there any ready to use setting for acoustic guitar?

    What would be the best settings for both fingerstyle and strumming.

    Thanks

      WilliamR Hello PaoloTrulli, William from musictribe here. I would start out by experimenting with the toneprint FullbandComp1. This toneprint has a wider range that works well for acoustic guitar. Tweek it in the toneprint editor to fit your particular needs.

    Hi friends

    Just received a Powecore X8, I bought recently. Unfortunately I can not turn it on.

    I've tried it  also with other power cables from my other PoCos, but  there is no blue light on the device and nothing appears in the PoCo software panel.

    Was the unit maybe damaged during the transport? I know these are old devices and there is no support, but anyway, is there a TC service in Switzerland? Maybe they still can repair it, if it is something small? Or may I open it and compare if all the wires are looking the same as in my other X8?

     

    Thanks!

      Nigel67 Hi Arseny. Unfortunately we do not have a Service Centre in Switzerland. Please see this link to find our closest one to you https://www.tcelectronic.com/buy.html?type=POS. Or you could try contacting our two local partners (https://www.tcelectronic.com/buy.html?isoCode=CH&type=STORE) and see if they have their own repair shop or know of someone in Switzerland who could take a look at your unit. The issue does look power supply related if the power LED isn't illuminating. Maybe a normal electronics repair shop may be able to take a look at the unit and advise further. Hope this helps.
