The TC Electronic Flashback 2 delay is an amazingly versatile delay effect in a compact, pedalboard-friendly stompbox format. Featuring eight amazing delays plus a 40-second looper, the Flashback 2 is leaps and bounds ahead of standard delay pedals, which typically feature only a handful of delay effects. Some of the highlights of the Flashback 2 delay include three spots for saving tones pulled from TC's TonePrint Library, a new crystal delay, and TC's groundbreaking MASH footswitch control. If you thought the original Flashback was powerful, just wait until you experience the TC Electronic Flashback 2.
Audio Tapping lets you set the Flashback 2's tempo by strumming your guitar. You can then select from three delay modes — eighth note, dotted eighth note, and both eighth and dotted eighth note together — which are independent from the delay style. What's more, the way the Flashback 2 handles your dry signal is also unique, giving it an all-analog path that blends with the effected signal. On top of all these great features, the Flashback 2 delay also includes TC Electronic's TonePrint technology, which allows you to download custom delay styles made by some of today's top guitarists.
TonePrint-enabled pedals such as the Flashback 2 delay allow you to use the TonePrint app to download custom-designed artist presets. You can also use the TonePrint editor software to create your own custom settings. The Flashback 2 pedal allows you to load up three different TonePrint presets simultaneously for more flexibility onstage. When you need instant access to your tone, just choose one of the three TonePrints you've loaded and away you go.
The innovative MASH footswitch gives the Flash 2 pedal amazing creative potential. In addition to toggling the delay effect, this pressure-sensitive footswitch can be used in a similar fashion to an expression pedal. Use it to swell the delay mix, bring modulation to the repeats, and even increase the feedback amount. Or assign other parameters to the MASH footswitch for even more sonic creativity.
The new Flashback 2 serves up a sonic buffet of expressive delay by infusing the pressure sensitive MASH technology with our renowned delay algorithms. We completely redeveloped our 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. We also squeezed in a shimmering Crystal delay, made with our own polyphonic octave algorithm from Sub 'N' Up into 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. We 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.
We 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. With MASH added to the mix, you no longer have to strain your back to reach down and twist knobs while mid solo. Just set MASH to control the parameter you have in mind and rock!
The tantalizing Crystal delay takes advantage the same cutting edge polyphonic octave algorithm that made the Sub 'N' Up Octaver a success. By shifting the pitch of the delayed signal up an octave through each feedback loop, we've created an immaculate shimmer. MASHing in this setting sends the delays into self-oscillation, providing you with surges of incandescent tone.
You love tone, so do we, and our design philosophy testifies to that. So whatever route you wanna go, we got your back. 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.
