Horrible Build Quality - Sounds Great  (By Mook)

Well this is a real shame, the unit has all the goodies and sounds the part, though within 2 weeks I discovered that the Expression pedal will not save parameters, the Tone Print Editor does not save the parameters I put into the PC and then the B footswitch packed it in and does not work.

C'mon TC, get it together (facepalm) (Posted on 12/19/13)

First of, I wish I could have removed a star somewhere because of the RIDICULOUS size of this thing, but I can't get myself to do it since all you get for this low price (as opposed to the strymon and eventide, which are in the same league In my honest opinion) is unbelievable. I have a rather large pedalboard that now feels small because of it, although, I sold my RC-20, since this pedal has a very nice, simple and effective looper. The sounds are all very nice, the 2290 is a must try for digital delay fans and the other can be modified using the insanely powerful toneprint editor. Plus, the toneprints (like PGS Echoplex simulation) add so much value and possibilities to this already awesome pedal, it's hard not to give it a perfect score all around :) (Posted on 7/22/13)
tone utopia  (By swegs)

I've had this thing for months and still spend hours at a time just tinkering around with the different delays. I'd read complaints in other reviews that the loop function seems just tacked on, but I disagree; this is a great looper. The only downside is that you can't access your presets while in the loop mode.
Most importantly, this is the most versitile delay schmorgasboard I've ever played with. The TC toneprint library give you an AMAZING collection of features beyond what comes packaged in the box. Some of the toneprints have wild modulation that you can't dial in on your own. Don't bother trying to load toneprints via computer, though. Just use the smartphone app and you can immediately load a toneprint, try it out, dial in a setting you like, save it, or move on and try another toneprint! The absence of a global tap tempo for all your presets seems tragic, but it doesn't interfere with any of my songs and the way I utilize it. The Flashback X4 dwarfs the original Flashback [which I also have] and is incomparable, irreplacable, and absolutely incredible! (Posted on 7/2/13)

I have been playing with this for several days now since receiving my order from PGS and it is incredible. Loving the versatility and capability of the Flashback X4 and I've only just begun to get past the delay side and into the looper.

This will be on my pedal board for a long while.

Get it, you won't be sorry. (Posted on 11/3/12)

TC Electronic Flashback X4

The TC Electronic Flashback X4 puts a whole world of delay at your feet. With 12 different types of dedicated delays, and 4 slots for downloadable TonePrint presets, up to 16 different truly magnificent sounding delays are yours at the click of a switch. Capture any 3 of your own favorite presets and assign each to its own footswitch for instant recall onstage or in the studio, plug in an expression pedal (not included) to control delay time, feedback level and delay level, for each of your three presets, each with your own preset sweeps, or plug in a MIDI controller for unlimited possibilities. A tap tempo footswitch, a 3-way toggle for quarter notes, dotted eighths or both, and controls for delay level, feedback level and delay time give you absolute flexibility to find every possible setting for every type of delay.

And what a collection of delays it is. The tape delay gives you a classic analog sound that degrades with each repeat. The tube delay simulates the vintage sweetness of an old Dynacord Tube Echo. Space delivers a lush, reverb-infused sound of the original Roland Space Echo with a tasteful hint of modulation. Analog comes back with the progressively warmer repeats you expect from an old school bucket brigade delay, and the Analog with Modulation adds a subtle touch of chorus for a beautiful effect. Reverse delay provides instant psychedelia by playing your signal back to you in reverse for a truly far out sonic experience. Dynamic ducks beneath your playing volume until you reach the end of a phrase, perfect for that dramatic end-of-song repeat. Of course TC has added two versions of their classic 2290 delay, the original and the 2290 with Modulation. Slap offers rockabilly perfection, LOFI gives you a warm effect and Ping Pong delivers separation between repeats when played in stereo or perfectly clean repeats in mono.

As with many TC Electronics effects, the Flashback X4 accepts TonePrint settings. Four slots are available, each one dedicated to the download of your dreams. TC Electronics’ exclusive invention is the result of giving their favorite artists special access to a special editor which allows them to dial in otherwise inaccessible parameters and control sweeps to create what is essentially a custom pedal with their own custom sounds. These special settings, or TonePrints, are available on TC Electronics’ website for anyone with internet access to download on to their own pedal.

Flip the two-way toggle from Delay to Looper and the Flashback X4 becomes a whole new pedal that is, itself, worth the price of admission. Whether you’re a one man band or some kind of wizard guitarist, 60 seconds of layered repeats, each with or without any of the delays, gives you and your rig a self-contained world of multi-instrumental expression. In Looper mode, the four footswitches become dedicated controls for Recording, Play/Pause, Play Once and Undo for complete control of the unlimited creative possibilities.

The Flashback X4 gives you the option of true bypass, which leaves no sonic fingerprints on your guitar’s tone when the effect is not in use, or buffered bypass, which boosts your signal, and is perfect if you use long cables or have a lot of pedals on your board. Simply unscrew the back plate and flip the left dip-switch down for true bypass or up for buffered bypass with trails.
