TC Electronic has introduced 5 amazing guitar pedals that let users play with unique tones created by some of the world’s greatest guitar players.
These new pedals – Corona Chorus, Flashback Delay & Looper, Vortex Flanger, Shaker Vibrato and Hall of Fame Reverb – deliver first-class tones right out of the box and feature a true bypass and analog-dry-through design that guarantees maximum tonal integrity and ultimate clarity. A small footprint, easy battery access and super high-grade components complete these awesome pedals. In short, they combine simplicity and flexibility with unrivalled sound quality – they simply take cool to a whole new level!
TC Electronic believes in moving the possibilities of guitar forward and all these new pedals feature an amazing new concept called ‘TonePrint’ that gives users instant access to the sounds of their favorite guitar heroes. A TonePrint isn’t just a static preset, it’s a complete re-tuning of the pedal including the sound and how the pots react – everything that makes a pedal unique. TC Electronic has collaborated with some of the best guitarists in the world – such as John Petrucci, Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal, Joe Perry, Orianthi and Doug Aldrich – to create the first batch of TonePrints,
but that’s just the beginning. The list of contributing artists will expand massively in the future, so forget emulation, let’s talk collaboration!
A simple USB cable connects these pedals to any PC or Mac for the actual Tone Transfusion. Each pedal is capable of holding one TonePrint at a time, but the concept is unlimited as users can swap TonePrints as many times as they want. All of these custom made TonePrints can be downloaded at TC Electronic’s website, and best of all – it’s easy, fast and totally free!
The TonePrint pedals will be available in February, 2011, priced at:
- Corona Chorus: US$177 MSRP / €122 List (excl VAT)
- Vortex Flanger: US$177 MSRP / €122 List (excl VAT)
- Shaker Vibrato: US$177 MSRP / €122 List (excl VAT)
- Flashback Delay & Looper: US$232 MSRP / €140 List (excl VAT)
- Hall of Fame Reverb: US$204 MSRP / €122 List (excl VAT)

Subsun has released Wobbles, a free effect plug-in for Mac.
Wobbles is a free-ware vibrato plugin for Mac OSX 10.4 and higher.
The effect features adjustable shape, depth and speed. Chorus and phaser type effects can also be achieved by using the dry/wet knob.
It has not been widely tested, so please let me know if you have problems! If there is interest in this plugin then I might update it with a couple more features (tempo syncing, custom LFO shapes).
