TC Electronic Flashback x4



TC Electronic

4 Flashback Delays combine into a new day for delay.

Simply Totally Delaycious

Guitarists everywhere loved Flashback Delay. The sounds, the vibe, TonePrints, the entire package - it was a smash hit that rocked the world. But at TC Electronic, we’re more about moving things forward and listening to the feedback from the guitar community. And so, when wishes for things like presets and tap-tempo started rolling in, we listened. And boy, did we knock it out of the park.

  • 12 delay types plus 4 TonePrint slots
  • Three presets
  • Tap Tempo

Delay Done Right

Think of your favorite delay sounds and chances are it’s a TC sound. Our delays are the industry standard and our 2290 Dynamic Digital delay is one of the most coveted pieces of gear out there today. We know and love delay and have made sure Flashback X4 delivers the legendary TC quality at every turn. We’ve also added 4 TonePrint slots that allow you to load 4 delay TonePrints - custom tuned tweaks of TC effects provided by your favourite guitarists! So from the awesome digital 2290 sounds to beautiful analog tape echoes, more exotic vibes of a reverse delay and even signature delay effects, Flashback X4 delivers every delay sound under the sun - past, present and future.

The Delay Guitarists Deserve

Flashback X4 is so much more than the sum of three Flashback pedals. Sure, we do what we do to pay the bills, but at the core, we do this for the love of guitar. Our guitar team is dedicated to contributing to the guitar community because we are part of it! So, when feedback from Flashback Delay users started pouring in, we listened. So many guitarists out there wanted presets, and the ability to switch between delay sounds instantly. Using Flashback’s amazing sounds but switching between flavors made tons of sense to us, and so Flashback X4 caters to that wish perfectly with three presets that can be as different and varied as you need them to be.

Creativity in your own tempo

The tap tempo feature was a no-brainer as that is already a fan favorite with some of our other delay pedals. You can easily set delay times or sync up with for example a drummer. Match delays to your guitar rhythms or solo ideas and diversify your playing with different tempos.

TonePrint® - signature effects

Dripping with the DNA of rock,TonePrints are free, custom tuned tweaks of your favorite pedals, provided by your favorite guitarists! TonePrints give you access to an effect as it is used by the artist of your choice - so you can tap directly into the TC tones used by rock royalty and turn your stompbox into the signature pedal of your favorite axe-slinger. Use our free TonePrint Appfor iOS and Android to beam TonePrints to pedals instantly and wirelessly.

True To Tone

You love tone, so do we, and Flashback Delay testifies to that. With optimized headroom, True Bypass or Buffered Bypass switching and Kill-Dry on/off, this pedal guarantees optimal tonal integrity and zero loss of tone. So whatever route you choose to go, we’ve got you covered. Plus no matter if the pedal is on or off, your precious dry sound is always passed through the pedal unharmed in all its pure analog glory due to an Analog-Dry-Through.

TC Electronic (press release)

TC Electronic Announces Flashback X4 Delay and Looper

Risskov, Denmark, 20 September 2012 - TC Electronic is proud to announce Flashback X4 Delay and Looper, the next generation of the smash hit Flashback Delay and Looper.

Flashback X4 offers 12 delay types plus 4 TonePrint slots executed in exquisite world-renowned TC Electronic quality. Other features include full TonePrint functionality including the ability to beam TonePrints from a smartphone, three presets, a dedicated tap tempo and expression pedal input.

Rounding out the package is a 40 second looper with ‘undo’ function and guaranteed optimal signal integrity via a True Bypass signal path that can also be switched to buffered bypass if the situation so demands.

“Flashback X4 is the pedal we simply had to do,” says Tore Mogensen, Product Manager for Guitar at TC Electronic, and continues: “I think we’ve proven over the years that innovation, quality and delivering products that make a difference matters most to us. It still does and it always will. But we also naturally fit right in the middle of the guitar community. We’re all guitarists ourselves.  We love going to concerts, we have an ever-expanding endorsement roster and just one look at our TonePrint program tells the world that we love this stuff. Lots and lots of the players we speak to use Flashback Delay and it turned out that presets on a delay pedal was a big deal for guitarists. We took that and added to it all of our knowledge, heritage and love for delays - from the famous 2290 to beautiful tape-echoes - and poured it into Flashback X4. I think the result is nothing less than stunning. We handpicked every delay type that has a place in both music’s history and future and then put them in a pedal that’s totally easy to operate. And to that, we simply added guitarists. Flashback X4 really is collaboration between us guitar geeks here at TC and the guitar community. We've talked to tons of guitar players over the last year or two and scoured the forums soaking up information about what guitar players would like from a multi-function delay - and Flashback X4 is the direct result. It's the delay you deserve!”
