      whatthe17 Now that the unveiling at the NAMM show is over hopefully we'll be hearing something soon. Everyone I've told about the rebelhead450 is really excited and I hope to be one of the test pilots. I'll put it through some real world testing at my gigs and practice.

      AidyTransmissio With the schedule I've got, it's going to be taken on a tour of London's public transport, a train to Cambridge, a coach to Manchester, in the studio and on every stage we're playing on. Absolutely mental, but a worthy test.

    Finally a unit with Univibe!! I hope its "for real" and not a cheap imitation like most.

    But I just got my Nova System today to replace a midi footcontroller and a G-Major. Next step up for multiple amps would be the G-System.

    I hope they eventually add the Univibe to the G-System if thats possible. I'm very impressed with the Nova System in these first few hours with it. Would definitely upgrade to a Nova System "2" with Wah Wah and Univibe some day.

      rune You actually get 2 quite different Univibe sounds with the G-Major 2. A classic, and a modern version. Both sound absolutely stunning. I think you will be very pleased with the sound of it.

      raven1a DAMMIT!!! I've been trying to figure out a way to get a Univibe "Robin Trower" sound with my G-Major for awhile. Now I'll have to upgrade to the G-Major 2. Damn!!!



      Is there a way to transfer presets from the G-Major to the G-Major 2 or do you have to start over from scratch?
      • January 20, 2009
    • Mr_You
      rune Good question. Will have to get back to you on that one. I don't think it will be possible though since some effects have been moved around in the different effect blocks. I'll check with the developers though.

    • Mr_You
      pinmikaa So when can we expect to see this available for sale? I am also curious as to the PC/Mac editor. Will the G Major 2 have a Usb port on it, or come with a Midi interface and the software to do the editing with??

    Hi Guys can somebody tell me what is the best way to set up my marshall JVM with g system I go it to 4 cable method but I see a drop on sound when fx loop is activated and distortion does not sound like its on just the amp alone ,can someone post the levels that I need to adjust or the best way to connect it , when i move fx button to 80% I get better sound but my tunner does not work silent, and at 100% it does , or if I have the right connection maybe i just need to move some buttons and one last question how do u guys turn it on and off ? thanks guys

      tomxt89 Hi delsol69, I have the Marshall JVM210H and the G system and here is the way I have it set up (4 cable method):

      Input from amp to Insert send on the G-System (using balanced cable)

      FX loop send on JVM to Insert Return on the G-System (using balanced cable)

      FX loop return on JVM to Output (mono) on the G-System (using balanced cable)

      High quality guitar cable from the guitar to the Instrument input on the G



      The balanced cables are EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to reduce noise and to improve sound quality (on both effects signal and to retain amp tone).



      Then the FX loop that you have to use on the JVM is the serial/parallel loop with the mix knob set on 100% wet and with the button fx send level on -10dBu (I use the serial/parallel effects loop because it's less hot than the serial loop on the JVM, it "adds" less noise to the signal, this usually doesn't have to happen, but well, I tested them both so use the SERIAL/PARALLEL loop).



      The levels on the G-System for the optimum volume level and NO tone degradation are as follows (the tone coming from the amp sounds the same with these levels with the G on the FX loop with the G on the loop/ with only the guitar plugged on to the head with no fx loop on; in other words, there will be no volume or tone degradation with these levels):



      Input gain: 10db

      Loop level: 0db

      Loop headroom: 5db

      Volume: 0db

      Volume position: Output

      Output level: 0db

      Boost max: 0db

      Insert select: Rear



      REMEMBER: the ONLY thing that may differ on these levels with my setup and YOUR setup is the INPUT GAIN (because we probably have DIFFERENT GUITARS which mean they have different pickups= different output) SO, you have to check this on your own, I have an Ibanez AR2000VV Prestige model (humbucking pickups).



      To set the input gain you have to do the following: 1) Unplug the cable going from the JVM's input and set it aside, and plug your guitar to the head (put the amp on OD orange), play the guitar and remember the volume at which you play; 2) plug the cable back to the JVM head (the one going from the Inset send from the G) and plug the guitar to the instrument input on the G and NOW try to equalize that volume heard before (I TOOK THIS FROM LIARDS WHITE PAPER, IF YOU CAN GET IT)



      Hope this helps!

      edoates I think the serial loop is "noisy" because it is so hot: line level rather than -10db (guitar effect level). I use a line level attenuator on the serial loop (or the "emulated" line out; same thing + a speaker emulator that I use for recording without mics) to control the return to the g-system. I'm not sure what circuitry in the JVM exists after the serial/parallel loop other than the JVM lousy reverb (always OFF for me).



      The attenuator I use is the SMPro Nano Patch passive attenuator. It works fine.



      Anyway, just another way to hook stuff up.

      danaconda Hi,i have a jvm 410h and am hoping i can get it hooked up to the gsystem with the 4 cable method.Im just wondering if you guys got it sorted and are happy before i invest in the extras(hum eliminator etc).The parallel/serial fx loop set to 100% wet is the way to go then ya?I tried it already at -10 but the signal was still clipping.Maybe im doing something wrong?Ill try it again.Basically you got it sorted ya?Thanks

    Hello guys,

    Welcome to the new TC Electronic bass forum. We are all extremely excited about our new product range, and most of us are at Winter NAMM in Los Angeles right now introducing the range to the world.

    On our main site - www.tcelectronic.com/bass, we will upload videos from the show on a daily basis to let you guys know what's going down at the TC booth.

    Feel free to discuss what you think about the RebelHead and share any considerations about this, and I will chime in as we go.

    Very best


    Uffe

      komar Quite a bit of hype, glad to see it finally arrive! Almost sounds like I'm describing something other than a bass rig here, but small package with nice tight cabs... I can't wait to hear in person!



      Also, not only do I like the idea of short stack in-line speaker config for sound... it will be great for transport. I need to check stats for weight, but I bet they are not a back breaker like the SWR and Eden 4-10 cabs I lugged around in years past!



      Assuming the 2-12 pumps out a little more lows, can you pair a 2-10 cab high with a 2-12 cab low?
      • January 15, 2009
    • UffeK
      rune Sure you can. You can use up to 3 RebelStack cabinets in any combination you like.

    Greetings,

    I am a long time TC Electronics enthusiast..I have the Gold Channel and the 2000 reverb..
    Since my budget won't allow the purchase of a new Finalizer Express or the 96k...I ran across an original finalizer wizard for cheap...This unit has the 16 - 20 bit converters. I usually record to one or two tracks at a time and build up my sessions this way...I never use the upper resolutions, 88.2 or 96k anyway...

    My plan is to record mic to Grace m101 to Finalizer to Akai Dps24 II inserts (bypassing the pres in the Akai), My question is this: Will the 20-bit converters on the Finalizer affect the sonic quality significantly compared to the Finalizer Plus? Option #2: I can SPDIF out of the Finalizer to the SPDIF of the Akai? (The Akai also has digital L & R input source)..On mixdown I can dither all songs on a project to 16 bit 44.1k, return the 2 track signal back to the Finalizer in SPDIF for mastering and then back to my computer SPDIF input for recording 2 track to final CD...

    I know this is long and drawn out...but any help and feedback you could give would be most appreciated...

    Thanks,
    Linda

    Has anyone attached/mounted their NS to a pedalboard (specifically a PedalTrain board) and how? I assume you could simply slap some adhesive velcro on the bottom but are there any other alternatives?

      kjk2205 Hi. I have the same question. Did you ever manage to fix it ?. Does the pedaltrain case lid

      shut with the Nova fitted to the board ?

      I haven't bought a Nova yet but would like to know in advance. thanks

      robberns Yes, that is how I have my Nova System attached to my Pedal Train.

      And the soft case lid does close.

      Danrues I carry a Nova System inside a SKB Stage Five pedalboard along with a Boss SL-20 slicer, a Boss RC-20XL Loop Station and a 95Q Crybaby Wah. The Nova is attached to the pedalboard by two 3/4" velcro strips and is just at the left corner of the pedalboard base.



      As a caution measure I put a 1-1/2" eggcrate foam pad on the inner top of the pedalboard case.



      The SKB is heavy as hell but i have not gotten any loosen toy inside of it yet...:/

      Ah thanks...mine is the original hardcase.

      onestop I'm using a PedalTrain 2 board with hard case and found that after attaching the Nova System to my board (and I'll get to that part in a second), I wasn't able to close the case.



      So I made a flat pedal board to fit in my PT2 case and bingo, fits like a charm!



      As for velcro, I ended up "gently" peeling off the rubber pad off the bottom of the NS and attaching it to a piece of aluminum foil (to save it for later) and slap some velcro right to the bottom of the TC unit. Works like a charm and I've preserved the rubber pad on the bottom.

    Hello, has anyone used the BBE Sonic Stomp with the G-System? The BBE Sonic Stomp is basically a 482i Sonic Maximizer, but in a pedal form. I was just curious how well it worked with the G-System. Happy Holidays to all!

      Robpags I was just looking up tone buffers and saw someone mentioned using the BBE sonic stomp as a buffer before the GSystem to bring back the punch that lacks in the 4 cable method.

      CodyCass1 I use a rack mounted 882i on my stereo rig but I ONLY use it for cleans. I think it ruins the sound of your gain channels.

    Hi,
    Could anyone tell me how i use the finalizer just to work with my vocal microphone and mixer.
    I dont want to compress or alter the music output just the mic output and input.
    Many Thanks,

    I am investing in some compressors for our live equipment (Lucas Impact, Mackie onyx 16-2 mixer, lexMX200, TCM350) and i would like to get some information about comparison of the c300 and c400xl. From the manual there is no difference obviously except the XLR In and outs of the c400. Is there a difference in processingpower and sound or just what? The price is about twice the C300! Has anybody tested this two parts.
    thanks for every information about this - martinus1

    Hi everybody, playing with my new finalizer 96, I'm recording my analog piano thru it and I have it connected with toslink cables to the adat inputs of my rme 9652. It works fine with mode 48, but in mode 96 the optical option that is adat12 disappears and I can only choose between tos and thru and then it doesn't gets sinchronized with the rme. Any idea abou it? Thanks a lot!

      eric_s The Finalizer doesn't support ADAT SMUX, which is the way to have 4 audio channels on one ADAT wire in 96kHz mode.

      You either send the signal over RCA/SPDIF to the RME card or you need to switch the RME card to run SPDIF/TOS on the optical connectors in stead of ADAT (as far as I remember the RME card is able to run SPDIF/TOS as well as ADAT on the optical connectors - but check for yourself) and then set the Finalizer optical output to TOS.

      Best eric
