      PedroRodrigues Hi Pvgmusic, thank you for your post, please to account that you cannot send settings from the pedal to the editor, only the other way around. this is due to some TonePrint artists don't want to share their TonePrint settings, which we honour.

      The easiest way to change presets around is via the editor. If you have designed your custom TonePrint always store them as user TonePrint in the App, so you can load them at any time and have 2 options:

      -Store them to a specific TonePrint slot, once the TonePrint is stored in a slot,you can store it to any preset location by selecting the preset location, then select the TonePrint slot using the delay type selector and then the toggle switch to store TonePrint to a preset location

      - Store TonePrint directly from editor to a preset location -> while you are connected to the TonePrint App you can also store the current TonePrint setting you have in the editor directly to the selected preset location of your FB 2 X4, so you don't have to store custom TPs to the TonePrint slots first to have them as preset in the device!
      Please follow the link below to access a video guide on how to save TonePrint’s:

    Hello,

    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?

    Thanks,

    Tom

      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:

      https://wsi.li/dl/c6KfQ5bqySuvKjWyd/
      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 have been using a plethora x5 for a while and got this instead of other alternatives mostly for the "listening to customer / update" philosophy.


    I have been designing toneprints based on famous pedals and units and found that the stereo implementation on the MOD effects is rather limited by today's (and TC electronics) standards.
    I am convinced the Plethora X5 could and should both emulate and go beyond many effect unit if a few tweaks get implemented.


    Since you rely on user feedback (and since I have been beta tester and showcase artist for a few products), here is a non exhaustive list of ideas that could really get the Plethora X5's modulation section to the next level. 


    - In general : more wave shape for the modulation LFO.  Ramp up/down, square, stepped/slewed random would take the Vibrato, Chorus and Phasers to boutique level (Lofi junky,  EarthQuackerDevices Aqueduct, Moogerfooger)

    
- Corona/Vortex Chorus/Flangers :
    
As of now the only way to get a stereo chorus is to use the TriChorus which, while an interesting effect, can be a bit overwhelming compared to other traditional units. Having to use at least 2 modulated delay lines is certainly aiming for an intense chorus effect. The flanger options are mono.

    It would make sense to create a stereo output from modulating the delay time of each channel (left/right) with a different LFO phase. 
It is also possible to offset the phase of the wet audio to create a stereo image. 
180 degree appart would make the classic stereo chorus from many rack units and pedals, while 90 degree is what I believe to be the TC Electronic SCF. (on a side note, the toneprint doesn't do justice to the original unit (I happen to have a vintage one), the stereo on the original is so gorgeous, the mono-only toneprint feels cheap and doesn't cut it for me... Also, "stereo" is in the name of the legendary unit ;) )

    Since it is already possible to invert the phase of a channel on the Helix Phaser, I guess it should be conceivable to add this option for the Chorus and Flanger. 

    Not as effective or thrilling but still : one easy (and old) trick is to route the wet and dry signal to a different channel so to have for instance 100% wet on the right channel and 100% dry on the left channel. This is the classic analog chorus à la CE-1.


    - Helix Phaser
 :
    The phasers are really tasty, but the stereo options are somewhat limited and could also benefit from more dramatic settings. The audio phase inversion works great, but it would be useful to have more "balanced poles" options. By that, I mean that having a 6 poles and 10 poles on both channel makes for more balanced sounds (instead of having a sort of "dual mono/tilted stereo image" with two channels with different poles). A 12 poles option would pay hommage to the great TC Phaser XII (I happen to have a vintage one and it is indeed awesome)

    - Shaker Vibrato
    It would be nice, as with the chorus/flanger to create stereo from having to separate left/right channels with opposite phase of modulation. It could create great moving stereo textures for instance with synths.

    - Pipeline Tremolo

    an option to change the phase relation of the stereo channels would turn the tremolo into wider stereo (For instance, 90° or 180° shift)

    From a technical standpoint, those slight changes are not drastically more complexe than the current options available but would make for obvious and impressive improvements.

    Those improvements could also easily be implementend and greatly benefit the original Toneprint pedal (Corona, Vortex, Helix and Shaker), again, putting them on the same league as some fairly well regarded boutique pedals.

    So, go for it, take this to the top and get a new boost for a good bunch of your products !

    I'd be happy to provide help if you have any question regarding implementation or user interface.

    Cheers,

    Maxime

    Hi guys,

    i've bought the TC electronic desktop konnekt 6 (Firewire Audio Interface and Monitor Control) but i can't upload the software because the version in the site is too old for my computer.

    Could you send me a version compatible with my computer please ?

    My computer : MacBook Air 7.2 / macOS Big Sur version 11.6.4 / Intel Core i5 double coeur (heartdouble) 

    Thank you very much for your answer.

      PedroRodrigues Hi Elodie87, thank you for your post, unfortunately the TC ELECTRONIC KONNEKT 6 has been discontinued for some time and we have stopped releasing any resources for this unit. If you wish to keep using your KONNEKT 6 you must do it exclusively on legacy operating systems. Thank you

    Dear all,

    I have a huge issue with my Plethora X5. I am using a Marshall JVM Amp and would like to use my Plethora with the Amp via MIDI.

    All the connections are correct. Even though I have the latest firmware the changing times between patches is like 2 seconds. That is way to long. The amp seems to be changing channels right away, but the Plethora needs more than a second longer.
    I use the MIDI MOOSE from TECH21NYC.

    Can this be normal? If yes, this unit is not ready for giging, because going from a clean sound to distoration takes too long.

    Please advise.

    Thank you!

    Brgds,

    Daniel

    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?

    Hello, I have back up the preset of my M3000 and my M2000 via sysex and Midi Monitor.

     

    I have a SRAM 1mB PCMCIA card to back up and load on different M3000.

    My PCMCIA has been detroyed. I can upload the preset via sysex on my M2000.... but it's impossible to do it on the M3000 ?????

     

    Thanks
