Four Flashback delays combine into a comprehensive, TonePrint-ready mega delay with 15 different delay types and a looper.
The Flashback X4 Delay & Looper combines four Flashback delays plus a 40-second looper with 'undo' function into one amazing pedal that takes delay to a place it has never been. TC Electronic made sure the Flashback X4 delivers the legendary TC quality at every turn. From the awesome digital 2290 sounds to beautiful analog tape echoes and more exotic vibes of a reverse delay, it contains virtually every delay sound under the sun - past, present and future. It's even equipped with four TonePrint slots that can be loaded via smartphone or USB port.
This cornucopia of delays also allows players to switch between three customs presets that can be as different and varied as they need them to be. The tap tempo allows you to easily set delay times, sync up with a drummer, or match delays to your guitar rhythms or solo ideas without taking your hands of the guitar or bending over the pedal. Simply tap the tempo with your foot and get on with things! It also allows for MIDI clock sync - perfecting delay times to your exact wishes. You can change presets and control X4 externally, for example if you wanna have it in a rack or safely in your backline.
In Flashback X4, the delay engine is completely separate from the one handling looping so there is total dedication to the sound you want to get and the cool ability to add delay to your loops. Flashback X4's total dedication to delay shines brightly in the expression pedal input. Many guitarists dream to have direct control over delay parameters and Flashback X4 gives you exactly that. But it's just not one parameter you can control, you can choose to control either the delay time, the feedback or the delay level of your sounds, giving you unprecedented control. Whatever your set-up or situation, Flashback X4 can adapt and guarantee optimal signal integrity - via small dip switches, Flashback X4 can be set to either True Bypass or Buffered Bypass.

Comments about TC Electronic Flashback X4 Delay & Looper:
I wanted a delay with lots of range, "pristine" delay sounds, but a simple interface. Seems delays today have gone to "layered" menus. That's fine when I'm in the studio but playing live can get in my way. My other criteria was that it be really usable across the range. How many times have you bought a multi-setting pedal only to find there are only 1 or 2 settings you really like or use? The Flashback X4 could not be more basic - Rotary dial gives 12 delay options plus 4 open "slots" that you can fill from a huge array of downloads on the TC site. You can then "sculpt" (time, decay, & wet/dry mix knobs) any of the on-board sounds and store your creation under one of three preset "stomp" buttons. That's 19 on-board delays with a simple interface that will never leave you lost in a menu tree. The best thing is the factory loaded options are diverse, sound amazing, and I actually use them all. There is a 40 second looper that's great at home for composing or practicing. It could work live but a stand-alone looper would be my recommendation there. Finally, if you want a more complex "laboratory" approach that offers "unlimited delay sounds," not to worry. Download the "tone print editor" from TC and your inner geek can use a computer to reprogram the whole pedal. Beyond my needs but amazing. In summary, the delays are "studio grade," 19 diverse on-board delays, infinitely reprogrammable, and a simple interface that won't ever leave you lost. I can focus on the music and the rest just works.
