The TC Electronic Flashback 2 X4 Delay is TC Electronic’s most powerful delay machine ever. Awesome delays are part of their DNA. It’s something they take very seriously. So, when it comes to making flagship delay pedals, you know they’re swinging for the fences. With the power of 4 FLASHBACK 2’s and an expanded interface that offers 3 MASH switches, tap tempo and 6 slots for storing artist or custom TonePrints in 2 banks with 3 presets each.
Open Delay Buffet
The TC Electronic Flashback 2 X4 Delay features a colorful palette of studio-grade delays, including the all-new and improved Analog and Tape delay algorithms, which set a new standard in realism. The hauntingly, lush Crystal algorithm, developed around our proprietary polyphonic octave algorithm from the lauded SUB ‘N’ UP Octaver, creates an other-worldly shimmer that is as inspiring as it is spine-tingling! Plus, they’ve added a brand-new dual delay algorithm with two individual engines for intertwining 2 echo lines at the same time for epic Gilmour-esque soundscapes. The TC Electronic Flashback 2 X4 Delay is even backwards compatible, which means you can still use the original FLASHBACK presets you know and love.
When your creative juices are really flowing, and you’ve got gallons of hot adrenaline rushing through your fingertips, you need the ability to adjust your settings quickly and dynamically. The TC Electronic Flashback 2 X4 Delay’s dedicated tap tempo switch lets you stomp out any time signature you want for airtight echoes that right on the beat. There’s even a convenient global tempo mode that lets you sync up all of your delay presets in about 2 seconds.
Once you get into the deep magic of delay tones, you won’t want to limit yourself. The TC Electronic Flashback 2 X4 Delay lets you link a preset to each of the 3 MASH switches for fast and easy toggling between tonescapes. A nifty little mini-switch lets you toggle between preset banks 1 and 2 for a total of 6 sumptuous delay presets on speed dial. Holding down the Tap footswitch lets you switch banks mid-song for an instant change of echo.
Making it Personal
TonePrints are addictive. When you can customize your effects in minutiae, going back to predetermined settings can be hard. That’s why TC Electronic have expanded the X4 design to hold a whopping 6 TonePrint slots, giving you the freedom to fill up your preset bank account with your own range of fine-tuned, unique delay tones. And since there’s a modulation engine in FLASHBACK 2 X4, you can even make a dedicated chorus or flanger TonePrint if you like. Go ahead – make this pedal your own!
Thrice the MASHing Capacity!
We’re crazy about the MASH footswitch and its sonic possibilities! As the flagship of TC Electronic’s delay pedal range, it seems only fitting that the TC Electronic Flashback 2 X4 Delay is decked out with no less than 3 MASH switches. Each footswitch holds a delay preset and the ability to control 3 parameters at once by varying your foot pressure on the switch.
Crossing T’s & Dotting Eighth Notes
Whether you like your delay for subtle slap backs, thickening that heroic spandex solo, or for a full-out fusillade of fiery echoes that pulsate to the beat, the TC Electronic Flashback 2 X4 Delay’s got what you need. You can even have them all programmed next to each other as presets. With 11 subdivisions including a custom setting you can dial on yourself, it is easy and convenient to achieve any kind of delay effect you can imagine.
True to Tone
You love tone, so do we, and TC Electronic’s design philosophy testifies to that. So whatever route you wanna go, they’ve got your back. With optimised headroom, True Bypass or Buffered Bypass switch and Kill-Dry on/off, this pedal guarantees optimal tonal integrity and zero loss of tone. No matter if the pedal is on or off, your precious dry sound is always passed through the pedal unharmed in all it’s pure analog glory due to an Analog-Dry-Through.
