What is the TC Electronic Plethora X5?

• Create a bunch of BOARDS

• Populate them with any of the TC TonePrint PEDALS

• Load each PEDAL with any TONEPRINT from our library or create your own

As soon as you unbox the TC Electronic Plethora X5 you’ve got a whole bunch of tasty premade pedalboards ready to go. No fuss. If you have a specific idea about what you need, take it one step further and choose which pedals go where on your board, or go all-in and get your hands dirty with our proprietary TonePrint technology, letting you customize each pedal in-depth for a truly unique setup! You decide how far you want to go.

Always Be Prepared

Setting up a nice pedalboard takes time. Planning, measuring, figuring out combined current draw, and cutting Velcro, all before organizing cables and power cords in a way that doesn’t look like the aftermath of a minor apocalyptic event. Trust us – we’ve built a LOT of pedalboards! Well it doesn’t have to be that hard. The TC Electronic Plethora X5 makes the entire board building experience much more intuitive and fun. With the ability to create and store up to 127 custom boards, tailored to your needs, you’ll never run out of tones.

Any Color You Like

Populate each of the boards with any TonePrint pedal combo. The TC Electronic Plethora X5 lets you combine up to 5 TonePrint pedals of your choice and arrange them in any order you need on each of the boards. This is your chance to make the “Flash of Fame” combined delay/reverb pedal you’ve been craving, with an extra side of modulation and pitch shifting for a truly massive tone! It’s all of your favorite TC stomps in one unit that will satisfy all of your needs for pitch tracking, studio-grade compression, sultry modulation, unobtrusive noise gating, toneful reverb, epic delay and more. TC Electronic might even add more pedals in the future if you ask nicely…!

TonePrint Treasure Chest

Each pedal in the TC Electronic Plethora X5 has 75 TonePrint slots available for quick recall of your favorite settings, letting you collate and store a list of your favorite sounds for safe keeping. Dial in and store a cornucopia of unique TonePrints tailor-made to your personal gear setup and have a whole host of iconic tones ready for your next jam session made by the greatest musicians in the world! Have your cake and eat it too! What’s a TonePrint you ask? Check it out here!

BYOD (Bring Your Own Drive)

Drive pedals are at the heart of building your own tone. More so than any other type of pedal, they are integral to which kind of guitarist you see yourself as. They become part of your identity. An extension of yourself blasted through your amp! As such, you should have the choice to integrate your own favorite stompboxes into the signal chain. The TC Electronic Plethora X5’s insert loop lets you add your preferred flavor of gain anywhere on the board you like. You can also use the insert for 4-cable method setup with your amplifier, letting you choose which effects go in front of your amp’s input and which effects live in your amp’s effects loop.

MASH To Perfection

Outfitted with 5 of our groundbreaking MASH footswitches, the TC Electronic Plethora X5 provides expression in a degree that was hitherto unknown. Volume swells, modulation ramping, fluid mix control and so much more. Each MASH footswitch lets you control your effects in real-time by simply mashing down on the footswitch. With each MASH switch controlling up to 3 effect parameters simultaneously through completely customizable action curves, your “always-on” effects suddenly grew a whole new dimension. Try it out for yourself!

LOOP ‘D’ LOOP

Practice makes perfect and there’s no better way to practice your timing and phrasing than with a phrase looper. The TAPE DECK LOOPER is a RAM based looper, exclusive to the TC Electronic Plethora X5. With record and playback times of 40 seconds in stereo and 80 seconds in mono, you’ll have more than enough reel to lay down some dirty loops. Load up to 5 of these bad boys onto a BOARD and position them anywhere in the signal chain.

HOT KNOBZ

Preset boards are nice, but what about the oldskool stompbox experience? HOT KNOBZ lets you assign the 3 black knobs on the TC Electronic Plethora X5 to simultaneously control any pedal parameters on your board, for real-time tweaking in PLAY mode. Touch and feel your effects.

Expression On The Side

Do you have a special place in your heart for expression pedals? Sometimes a certain song might call for separate parameter control outside of what the MASH switches provide. That’s cool, the TC Electronic Plethora X5 features an EXP input to hook up your favorite expression pedal for controlling any effect you like or adding an extremely useful volume pedal, anywhere in the boards signal chain.

Stay Connected

The TC Electronic Plethora X5 is the first TC pedal to feature Bluetooth, letting you connect to the free TonePrint App. Using the TonePrint app you can connect your phone to the TC Electronic Plethora X5 and arrange your boards to get everything just the way you like it!

Don’t Forget!

A guitarist’s life can be stressful at times and sometimes you just have to hustle. Don’t let that get in the way of your quest for tone though! The TC Electronic Plethora X5 automatically stores your settings as you go, without the need for deep menu diving and keeps them safe until you’re ready to rock out again!

Mix It Up!

What would it sound like if you turned the usual order of delay into reverb upside down? Or if you insert your favorite, sputtery octave fuzz at the end of your chain after the time based effects? Great question! With the TC Electronic Plethora X5’s Quick Swap feature, it’s a breeze to experiment with pedal routing. Just hold down the footswitches of two pedals that you’d like to swap around and it’s done. Easy peas. Cool beans.

Cab Service When You Need It

When you’re in the mood for going somewhere in a hurry, it’s nice to have dependable cab service! You may not have time or space to grab your amp and cabinet before rushing to the gig. As an added bonus TC Electronic have included 9 optional global cab simulations made in-house, using a proprietary TC method. Makes “direct to PA” gigs and home recording sessions a breeze! And there’s even something for the BASS players…

Life In Stereo

With all of these studio-grade effects and TC’s legendary reputation for creating the lushest tones in the biz, we’d be remiss not to equip our flagship product with true stereo to let you experience the richest sounds in rock.
