Following on the popularity of the best-selling delay pedal, the Flashback X4!!!
Here's what TC Electronic say about the new delay;
Flashback X4 Delay and Looper
All Delay All The Way
4 Flashback Delays combine into a new day for delay.
Simply Totally Delaycious
Guitarists everywhere loved Flashback Delay. The sounds, the vibe, TonePrints, the entire package - it was a smash hit that rocked the world.
But here at TC Electronic, we're more about moving things forward and listening to the feedback from the guitar community. So when wishes for things like presets and tap-tempo started rolling in to us, we listened. And boy did we do this - taking the original FlashBack to the next level!
- 15 delay types
- Three presets
- Tap Tempo
Delay Done Right
Think of your favorite delay sounds and chances are it's a TC sound. Our delays are the industry standard, and our 2290 Dynamic Digital delay is one of the most coveted pieces of gear out there today. We know and love delay and have made sure Flashback X4 delivers the legendary TC quality at every turn. From the awesome digital 2290 sounds to beautiful analog tape echoes and more exotic vibes of a reverse delay, Flashback X4 delivers every delay sound under the sun - past, present and future.
The Delay Guitarists Deserve
Flashback X4 is so much more than the sum of four Flashback pedals. Sure we do what we do to pay the bills, but at the core we do this for the love of guitar. Our guitar team is dedicated to contributing to the guitar community because we are part of it! So when feedback from Flashback Delay users started pouring in, we listened. So many guitarists out there wanted presets and the ability to switch between delay sounds instantly. Using Flashback's amazing sounds but switching between flavors made tons of sense to us. Therefore Flashback X4 caters to that wish perfectly with three presets that can be as different and varied as you need them to be.
Creativity in your own tempo
The tap tempo feature was a no-brainer as that is already a fan favorite with some of our other delay pedals. You can easily set delay times or sync up with for example a drummer. Match delays to yourguitar rhythms or solo ideas and diversify your playing with different tempos.
TonePrint® - signature effects
TonePrints are free, custom tuned tweaks of your favorite pedals, provided by your favorite musicians! TonePrint give you access to an effect as used by the artist of your choice - so you can tap directly into the TC tones co-designed by top players and turn your stompbox into the signature pedal of your favorite performer. Use our free TonePrint App for iOS and Android to beam each TonePrint to pedals instantly and wirelessly.
True To Tone
You love tone (so do we) and Flashback Delay testifies to that. With optimized headroom, True Bypass or Buffered Bypass switching and Kill-Dry on/off, this pedal guarantees optimal tonal integrity and zero loss of tone. So whatever route you choose to go, we've got you covered. Plus no matter if the pedal is on or off, your precious dry sound is always passed through the pedal unharmed in all its pure analog glory due to an Analog-Dry-Through.
Backstage Pass - All Access
Flashback X4 essentially does two things: minimize hassle and maximize sounds. It's simple to operate but has many options, while the sounds and TonePrint functionality span the complete spectrum of delay in the most musical way possible. All that is fantastic, but take a closer look and find out that X4 is totally dedicated to the beauty of delay.
Room To Rock (TP slots)
Flashback X4 is equipped with 4 TonePrint slots, allowing you to load your favorite signature delay effects as done by the artists on our TonePrint roster. Oh and since this is the 21st. century, you can also load TonePrints via your smartphone.
Delay's delight (delay type. we may not need it, but i thought i'd write it)
15 delay types are at your disposal, all done in world-renowned TC quality. Have a look - you know you will want to try them all!
Time is on your side (anywhere)
With seven seconds of delay, Flashback X4 can make your music as spacious and wide as your creativity.
Loopy for creativity (looper)
Flashback X4 has a 40 second looper so you can jam with to your heart's content. Plus we've added an 'undo' function to speed up workflow and increase fun.
Level the playing field (looper Level)
Change how loud the loops that are being played back to you are. Turn clockwise for maximum you, counterclockwise for a more conservative approach.
Ember to Inferno (Delay Level)
Subtle to screaming, this is the knob you rely on for setting the volume of your delay level.
Positive feedback (feedback knob)
No, this is not the Marshall-like squeal we know and love, but it does allow you to set the number of repeats you want from short and snappy to a total timewarp.
Time for tones (Delay Time)
Turn this dial all the way down for really short repeats. Turn up until you find your preferred amount of delay. Turning it all the way up will give you a whopping 7 seconds of delay time in most modes.
The world at your feet (Preset buttons)
The most requested feature from the original Flashback Delay - presets. Here they are, three presets at your disposal. However, now the question will be on how you will to divide your time between three great accessible sounds?
Creativity at your own tempo (tap tempo)
Instantly sync up your delays with your band's tempo, the ideas in your head or whatever else is guiding you without taking your hands of the guitar or bending over the pedal. Simply tap the tempo with your foot and get on with things!
Separated at birth (looper/delay switch)
In Flashback X4, the delay engine is completely separate from the one handling looping. This means total dedication to the sound you want to get and the cool ability to add delay to your loops.
Maximum signal integrity
Flashback X4 goes with the flow like our other TonePrint enabled pedals. Whatever your set-up or situation, Flashback X4 can adapt and guarantee optimal signal integrity - via small dip switches, Flashback X4 can be set to either True Bypass or Buffered Bypass.
Can't touch this (don't use this one, its in true to tone, i just wanted to write it in case tore wants it)
Flashback X4 features an analog-dry-through which ensures your natural, dry signal remains unaffected and is never converted to digital. This results in a more natural, warmer sound.
Flashback X4's controls and I/O options are aimed at one thing: making life easier for you. Dialing in sounds, loading TonePrints and integrating X4 into your set-up is a breeze. There are Mono and Stereo options and even an expression pedal port, allowing you to control any delay parameter available.
Flashback X4s total dedication to delay shines brightly in the expression pedal input. Many guitarists dream to have direct control over delay parameters and Flashback X4 gives you exactly that. But it's just not one parameter you can control, you can choose to control either the delay time, the feedback or the delay level of your sounds, giving you unprecedented control (and a good reason to pretend you are Steve Morse).
I/O stealing the show
Flashback X4 allows for MIDI clock sync - perfecting delay times to your exact wishes. You can change presets and control X4 externally, for example if you want to have it in a rack or safely setup in your backline.
USB / Beam
Yes - there's a USB port, but it's not just for boring stuff! We've got some features in store that we want to put out once we've perfected them or once music is ready and those updates will be free. You can also load TonePrints via USB, but most cool cats will be doing it via the TonePrint app on their smartphone. It works wirelessly and flawlessly and it's also totally free.
Mix and match (subdivision selector)
The subdivision selector on Flashback X4 allows you to choose quarter notes or dotted eights, but has a nifty feature that allows you to select or mix either/both when using dual delays. This adds flexibility, creativity and unexpected results!
No time wasted - plug and go!
One of life's nice little surprises is that Flashback X4 comes with a power supply included, so you don't have to waste any time and can get straight to playing.
X4 gives great headroom (extra, somewhere in/out)
From guitar to amp-FX-loop signals, Flashback X4 handles anything you throw at it with ease.
