With the recent announcement of TC Electronic's free TonePrint Editor software, their already popular range of pedals has just been elevated to another level! The TonePrint Editor gives you access to a huge range of usually hidden parameters within the pedal, allowing you to create completely unique preset effects without the limits imposed by standard guitar pedals. You can even download presets that have been created by some of your favourite artists from the TC Electronic website (click here) and beam them into your pedal using your Smart Phone if you desire!
And the even better news? TC Electronic have just announced a special promotion which allows you to grab one of their TonePrint or compact pedals completely FREE between now and 31st May. Read on for full details!
In our opinion, this is one of the most exciting announcements of NAMM 2013 and amazingly, it's FREE! TC Electronic have announced that they will be releasing TonePrint Editor software for Mac and PC, which will essentially allow you to create your own custom pedal if you own a TC Electronic TonePrint pedal. To understand just how cool this is, we will begin by giving you a quick summary of what TonePrint is.
TC Electronic announce the Flashback X4 delay and looper pedal, which is essentially an expanded Flashback pedal. The Flashback X4 improves on the standard Flashback pedal by featuring 3 preset slots with individual bypass switches, 4 toneprint slots and a fully featured looper. The Flashback X4 also features more built-in effect presets.
TC Electronic have announced a brand new bass amp head - the BH250! The BH250 is currently the only bass head that features TC Electronic's revolutionary TonePrint concept, allowing you to beam different presets into the bass head for sonic versatility with extreme ease. TonePrint presets are programmed by industry professionals, guaranteeing you a pro sound every time!
The TC Electronic BG250 was announced at Musikmesse 2012. It is an ultra-light 250W bass combo amp that features TC Electronic's revolutionary TonePrint technology! TonePrint allows you to change amp and effect settings on the BG250 using pre-programmed professional presets. You can even beam presets into the amp from your iPhone (or Android phone) through your guitar with the free TonePrint application!
iOS guitar apps and products have exploded onto the scene within the last couple of years. From apps that simply act as metronomes and tuners, to apps that help you to learn your instrument, to apps that model whole amp and effects rigs and a lot more in-between, the product market has had to move fast to keep up with these recent software advances...
The TC Electronic TonePrint app introduced a revolutionary concept when it was released. It essentially allows the user to select a TonePrint preset (a guitar effect that has been specially designed by an industry professional) and then allows you to 'beam' the preset into your guitar pickup and down into you pedal in a matter of seconds! This means that you don't need to connect the pedal to a computer to switch presets, so you can leave your precious laptop in the safety of your home, rather than having to set it up on stage at a manic rock gig! And best of all... it's free!
Another one of the exciting products to emerge from NAMM 2011 was the TC Electronic TonePrint! Well, I say ‘product’, although the TonePrint is actually a concept that has been applied to a range of guitar pedals… so what is TonePrint? Hopefully I will be able to answer this question in the following blog-post…
