TC Electronic Pedalboard to end all Pedalboards

Could it be as simple as 5 options of any toneprint from the database. Could be killer if it is.

I was about to post the same photo... If it is what you wonder, then I agree that it could be absolutely amazing. Especially if the buttons have that mash feature 🤤 Fingers firmly crossed for a spectra, spark, mojo, flashback, HoF...

You might not see the Spark or Mojomojo as they're analog pedals. They could try to approximate them though, they do have the Spectradrive and Tubetone algorithms after all.

I would have expected to see TC try out standalone digital drive, amp/cab sim and filter pedals at some point before they tried their hand at a multi-fx. Interesting to see what they come up with though!

Yes please! I had a G-System and loved it. It was the size of a radiator though. Something like the Flashback X4 size would be awesome. 

And less than £500 would be nice...

So average price of TC pedal is ~£100

x 5

I want to be surprised and say it might £300 but that's probably a bit low.

Much more than that though and they’re competing with the Helix HX Effects (£359) which probably offers a lot more than this. I’d expect it to be under £300, but then again we don’t know what ‘it’ is yet!

Wow. 

 

That is exactly what I think everyone wanted from this pedal. Don't think it will compete with Helix but Boss and Zoom should be worried.

I don't see Headphone Out specifically mentioned, but if you engaged the cab sim and stuck a quarter to mini jack converter in the Output, could you use this as a headphone 'amp', or would it blow up them up?

Can't find anything about a price yet...

I can very much see the attraction. The price point is going to be interesting.

It's not what I wanted, but it's what I expected given their current lineup!

FX include:

Hall Of Fame 2 Reverb, Flashback 2 Delay, Sub n Up Octaver, Brainwaves Pitch Shifter, Corona Chorus, Hypergravity Compressor, Mimiq Doubler, Vortex Flanger, Pipeline Tap Tremolo, Quintessence Harmony, Sentry Noise Gate, Shaker Vibrato

So no overdrive/distortion/fuzz,  no phaser and no filters.

My board is pretty much filter, drive and phaser, so this would be about as much use as a chocolate teapot.

Whilst maybe they figured lots of people like their own existing ODs etc. so made the option available to stick one in the FX loop, I agree that its shame this isn't quite the single grab solution I hoped it might be (even though I had realised that there most likely wasn't going to be an option for the Spark or the Mojo).

Also, 450 dollars is 350 quid... It is a lovely bit of kit I am sure (Mash on every knob, plus an EXP/Volume In is very cool), but not for me at that price.

I very much doubt it'll be £350 either, most companies have a habit of using a 1:1 exchange ratio for £ and $!

I wish they'd waited until they'd fleshed out their digital FX offerings a bit more to cover the gaps, rather than rush this to market with things missing.

They could make a killer envelope filter with their Toneprint tech if they put their minds to it! And they already have the Spectradrive and Helix Phaser, so why are those effects missing? Hopefully some of this stuff is on the roadmap.

Is it possible to put 5 delays in line, or can I use just one at a time?

When they filter through to the for sale ads I might take a look, but I'm a little bit more excited for the new zoom multi fx - assuming they release a bass version

It appears to offer less than it's competitors, which is a shame really as TC make some nice pedals.
