    Hi there. I play trumpet and saxophone in a band and was wondering if this was possible.... can I run my trumpet through the stereo input with a switch on the stage mic (toggle on and off when not playing), and run my sax through the mono input with also a switch to toggle on and off when not in use?

    Also, is the stereo signal for the 'trumpet' going to send to the board half the output strength of the mono signal? I hope this is possible - that would be really cool. As I'm sure you're aware the gain of the trumpet compared to the saxophone is significantly different hence the need to run both channels seperately into the board. 

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much.

    I am adding this here because I have not been able to lodge a "Care Ticket" without Google Chrome browser hanging and failing to complete the process.

    I am seeking access to a more extensive documentation of the lastest version of toneprint (in this case, as it relates to Flashback 2). Specifically, an explanation of all of the parameters present within each of the different delay templates (Tape, Digital etc etc) and a more detailed documentation of what these parameters refer to (for e.g. Wow - shape of the LFO, how the knob % value relates to a specific cycle rate, is it fixed or randomised etc etc) OR simply more detailed descriptions of the available values (i.e. the clipping types and why each have been included, or to what the abbreviations refer).

    In some cases it would be nice if the knob values simply reflected these real world values (e.g. Hz), rather than percentages. When toneprinting hardware emulations in studios (for e.g. RE-201, RE-501, Fulltone Tube tape echos, Lexicon Prime Time etc etc) we are happy just using our ears, but in some cases would find it quicker and more precise to use other tools available to us (RX Advanced, Oscilloscopes etc) to match the behaviours more precisely. Providing additional information would make this process simpler.

    Toneprint is such a powerful tool, we would like to be able to use it in a slightly more informed manner. It doesn't appear that this documentation has been updated since the initial version of the application and I think it would be useful if this updated information were made available in either a Toneprint manual or within the individual pedal manuals. Even instructions for quick functions like clearing a parameter from knob assignment is not immediately clear and would benefit from explicit documentation; this was not included in the original documentation.

    PS. As an aside, it'd be nice if you could combine any of the possible note subdivisions when assigning behaviours to the switch. On a space echo my favourite setting is a crotchet with a minim triplet (heads 2 and 3) and while I can configure each of these singularly, I cannot combine the two and must settle on the compromise of a crotchet with a dotted 8th; a quite different feeling combination.

    Thanks for your time. Hopefully others may agree and this post can further the development of such documentation.

      Hi WinterHill,


      regarding the failed ticket submit, can you Pm me a screenshot of the date you entered, so i can pass this on to our developers. We had more customers reporting the same thing and would like to get to the bottom of this asap. Please also include your Os version , so we can try to reproduce the issue.


      As for the your question regarding a more detailed parameter documentation, we currently don't have an updated manual available, but it is planned will include mouse over help in future versions of the toneprint app.. 


      Regarding the Flashback 2 parameters, i attached some basic parameter desciptions for all Fb2 parameters in the toneprint app .  Please note this is not an official relased document, but something i made myself for internal use.... Hope this helps you get a better understanding of the product.

    The PowerCore was an expensiv hardware based VST plugin System form t.c. electronic. 14 Plugins are free on the hardware, all other licensed plugins you had could buy and register until 2017. Until 2018 t.c.electronic has closed all services and the user-acounts are frozen now (or deleted, no one knows). Now you can't move a license to another hardware or buy one. You can use it like it is, until something gets broken. If your hardware don't work anymore and you have to change the Hardware, all your license are gone. All useable Plugins you could use at the PowerCore Hardware are fixed at the driver software but without the license there are no chance to use it. The System should be dead now, but a lot of people still need it for make music and had payed a lot of money for license they could not use someday in the future.

    We are more tha a few :

    Hi all,

    I have a sub n up mini. But what I now realise is that rather than having an octave above or below what I am looking for is the same note being played. I know the Brainwave pedal has the unison feature but that is too much level for what I need. Does the editing software allow to put the unison note in there?

    Thanks in advance Richard

      Hi Richard,


      the Sub'n Up and mini versions are classic octavers and can only do fixed octave transposition, so it is not possible to do unisono/ ADT (automated double tracking)  sounds.


      Both our Brainwaves Pitch shifter  and Quintessence Harmoniser can do unisono sounds with up to 2 extra voices that can be individually detuned (up or down). Brainwaves has a dedicated Detune mode in which Voice 1 and Voice 2 intervals don't work in semitones/octaves, but detune the signal up to 50 cents up/or down.
      Our Mimic pedal steps int the same area, but i like the brainwaves better for this. Mimic adds also random timing variations and not just detunes the signal, which is more subtle.


      brainwaves detune.PNG


      We have a great Dual detune toneprint template available where the basic amount of detuning can be set via the 2 voice pots , but via MASH switch you can dynamically change the detune amount, which i really like and has become my standard application. This works also great with other instruments like synthesizers and keys.

      Hi,


       


      Thnaks for that.


      It is funny but I want a really simple pedal... 2 knobs Dry and Unison or the the same note, created in the same way an octaver does but in the same pitch. 


      The Brainwave is too much pedal in a box and I dont need that fuctionality, and the mimic is very close delay so a copy of your sound.


      What I don't understand is why no manudaturer does Dry, 1 down Octave synthed, Unison Synthed, 1 up Octave synth. Simple. Cant be that difficult


      Cheers!

      Octavers like the sub'n up and classic ones are designed to shift the signals in octaves and use a different processing algorithm compared to a pitch shifter that is not suited for microshifting. classic octaver achieve
      the transposed octaves by using flip flops to create a square wave of the input signal at 1/2 or 1/4 of input frequency and due to nature of square wave have a buzzy, synth like tone. A unison sound / micro detuning would just not sound very natural with a classic octaver. So, if you look for a product that does Detuning/microshifting + can work as an octaver, a "real" pitch shifter is much better suited for the task.

      Best regards,


      Mike

      Hi Richard,


      you should see it as a challenge instead. and one that can be solved


      The Brainwaves with it's two voices can give you both an nice sounding octaver(up to 2 octaves up or down) + a detune effect in classic Pitch shift mode.Voice 2 needs to be set to "custom" , so that you can do microshifting below one semitone for unison sound. When bypassing the FX, you will always toggle both Octaver  (voice 1) and unison (voice 2) , but if you eg don't want either octaver or unison to be active at the same time, you can also use the MASH switch (pressure sensor in footswitch) to control FX level of octaver or unison FX dynamically (eg unison or octaver are only active as long as you hold down the footswitch + can also alter detuning amount .(up to 3 parameters, each ith its own parameter curve can be assigned to MASH)

    Hey TC...  are there any plans to release a firmware update that will allow assigning one of the stereo inputs of accept 1/4" external tap tempo, a la the single-size Flashback 2?

      Hi Nicholas,


      no, this won't happen as the Flashback 2 X4 has a dedicated Tap tempo switch that you can access at any time without loosing true stereo operation. Via Toneprint you can set wether Tap tempo should work globally for all settings including presets.


      Furthermore, tap tempo can also be remote controlled via Midi CC data.


      P.s. our Flashback 2 pedal just got a firmware update, where you can use the built in footswitch to tap tempo if MASH is disabled in the editor, so you also can get true stereo delay with tap tempo without sacrificing the stereo input for tap pedal.


      Best regards from the TC tribers,


      Mike

    Hi, I wonder if I can tune my guitar a half step down (Eb,Ab,Db,Gb,Bb,Eb) with Brainwaves Pitch Shifter, how can I do it? 

    Also, is it possible if I can pitch shift direct to Drop D tuning with the brainwaves?

    Many thanks.

      Hi, 


      you can customise the Pitch shift amount in cents, so creating a toneprint where you pitch shift all notesa half step down is possible visa the editor.


      Since the default voicings for the 2 Pitch shifters don't have a "half tone" setting, you use the "Custom" one for voice 1 and 2 to restrict pitch shifting/Tonebending to 100 cents + set the Toggle switch for each voice to "up" or "down" depending wether you want to pitch up or down.


      brainwaves 100cents down.PNG


      On the common page you set the Mode for the pitch shifter depending on your preferences (whammy mode, etc)


      it is not possible to use Brainwaves like a drop tune pedal as it cannot just pitch down the lowest string without ignoring the other 5.  


      If you just want to bend up/down the current sound by 100 cents via MASH switch, you set the "Tonebend Tone" parameters to "100 " 


      Best regards,


      Mike

    Hi

    I'm a huge fan of the Crystal delay on the  flashback 2. Does anyone know if a new triple delay is coming out with the same feature?

      Hi Anto,


      there is currently no triple delay version of the Fb 2 planned, but there might be another product soon that will be able to cover the same functionality.

    hi all,

    i m searching for the device control software for the LM2 19" device.

    support from TC are not able to help, because the LM2 is too old

    maybe anybody of you can help to find the software. google did not help.

    hope fully any on of you have these software still available.

     

    thx so much

    all the best
