The Flashback 2 serves up a sonic buffet of expressive delay by infusing the pressure sensitive MASH technology with TC Electronic’s renowned delay algorithms. MASH is a breakthrough feature that makes the footswitch sensitive to the amount of pressure you put on it to control the any parameter and up to 3 parameters at once! Raise delay time, deepen modulation and so much more all without having to adjust the knobs!
TCE has completely redeveloped their Tape and Analog algorithms from scratch, recreating the tones of old school echoes with unheard realism, including every little eccentric behavior inherent in those legendary designs. A shimmering Crystal delay, made with TCE’s own polyphonic octave algorithm from Sub 'N' Up has also been added to Flashback 2.
And finally, with 3 TonePrint slots in total, you get more flexibility than ever, and all the legendary delay sounds that TC Electronic are famous for.
MASH reacts to the amount of pressure you put on the switch. The harder you press, the more intense the effect. TCE made MASH controllable through the free TonePrint Editor which means that, you can assign to any parameter and up to 3 parameters at once.
For each delay preset, MASH will control a different parameter and let you express yourself without having to bend down to turn knobs and without the trouble of getting a dedicated expression pedal. For example, you can assign MASH to raise the delay time as you press down, subtly increase the delay feedback into full-blown self-oscillation, or gradually add and deepen chorus modulation for out-of-tune flutters.
New Tape and Analog Algorithms
TC Electronic seriously improved the Tape and Analog algorithms to make them more realistic than ever, displaying all of the idiosyncratic flutters and warbles reminiscent of the old days. Twisting the Delay knob while playing will alter the pitch of the repeats and cranking the feedback sends the pedal spinning into self-oscillation ecstasy.
New Crystal Delay
The tantalizing Crystal delay takes advantage the same cutting edge polyphonic octave algorithm that made the Sub 'N' Up Octaver a succes. By shifting the pitch of the delayed signal up an octave through each feedback loop, TCE has created an immaculate shimmer. MASHing in this setting sends the delays into self-oscillation, providing you with surges of incandescent tone.
With optimized headroom, True Bypass or Buffered Bypass switch and Kill-Dry on/off, this pedal guarantees optimal tonal integrity and zero loss of tone. And, 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.
