OVERVIEW

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.

This is an excellent delay pedal. It offers a very wide range of delay sounds, all of which sound very good. Its easy to use and when used in conjunction with the toneprint editor is one of the most versatile pedals of this form factor. It is however very large, so you need to have pedalboard room that you want to fill with a serious delay pedal. The looper works very well. The four button control is very nice and it provides a pretty solid 40 seconds of recording. One complaint I have heard of the pedal is a bug in which it loses preses upon power cycling. This has been fixed in firmware. The only other real complaint I have heard is of build quality specifically with respect to the switches. I have not experienced any trouble. The chassis feels very solid and the knobs and switches feel good. The switches have a very light click, which IMO is ideal for this application. I have only had the pedal for three weeks or so, and have not experienced any issues.

This is a GREAT sounding unit and is extremely transparent. However, I spent a few hours programming and saving 3 presets in it one night. The next night I took it on a gig, only to find out that for some reason, my presets were gone and it was set back to the factory presets. I did some research on some of the guitar forums and discovered this is a known issue. Long story short...I returned it.

    Comments about TC Electronic Flashback X4 Delay & Looper:

    Borrowed this pedal from a friend and fell in love with it! HAD to get one of my own. I particularly love the space effect the most. I play lead in a band, and it really gave the little something our sound was missing. It made the guitar sound a lot more full, lush, and dreamlike.

    The looper is really simple to use, and there isn't any lag. I beleive it records up to 45 seconds or so? I just need to practice more on timing, because this is my first looper pedal heheh.

      Comments about TC Electronic Flashback X4 Delay & Looper:

      The flashback x4 is like having the original flashback three times over. You get three presets plus a tap tempo switch. There are sixteen settings, including 4 toneprints, all of which are very useful and sound AMAZING! I prefer the 2290 setting with modulation for most of my church stuff. It sounds pristine. The analog and tube are both extremely useful as well.

      In addition to being the best delay processor I've ever owned, it also has a 40 second looper. While I'll probably never use this in a live setting, it is great for practicing lead lines over chords on the fly.

      All in all this is one super pedal. It is totally worth the cash and you will get so much out of it IMHO. I've been playing guitar for about 25yrs now and don't usually write such rave reviews, but this pedal is just that good.

        Comments about TC Electronic Flashback X4 Delay & Looper:

        This pedal sounds great, but I cannot understand why the looper is not MIDI synced. Perhaps that was price prohibitive, but I doubt it. The delay effect itself IS synced.

        Without MIDI sync, the looper will quickly fall out of sync, and is essentially useless when the MIDI is engaged. It seemed like such a no-brainer to me I could not believe T.C. had not synced it, and the manual is not obvious about it.

        ALAS! I quickly returned it.

        I purchased this product last December and have nothing but problems with it. The tone print has never worked even after returning the product and receiving it back from the manufacture. The unit will only save in 3 slots even though its supposed to have up to 12 saved settings under the toneprinr knobs. It doesn't. Customer service gave me the run around for weeks before I could even ship it and when receiving it back was still broken. I would avoid this product like the plague if I was you. If you want to take a chance, then hope it works with no problems or you will have purchased an expensive paper weight.

            I did a lot of research and trying out of delay pedals before I bought this. I even bought a couple other pedals along the way. This pedal sounds absolutely amazing. Rich and sweet delays at every setting. I haven't used the loop function other than to play with it briefly. If I could have anything different about this pedal it would be to make it 1 or 2 max presets with the tap tempo, but that is not a criticism, just how I use the pedal.

              Comments about TC Electronic Flashback X4 Delay & Looper:

              This pedal has warm delay tones that will satisfy most guitarist's needs. I'm embarrassed to say I was using a Boss DD-5 before this pedal and the tone difference it blowing me away!! Why didn't someone slap me in the face and tell me how thin my delay was with the DD-5!?? Thankfully that's all behind me and this warm pedal sits before me. I also used a Boomerang Phrase Sampler + to make droning chords or to stack loops. Now I only need the FlashBack 4x to accommodate both my delay and sampling needs. I'm not big into sampling so this pedal does all I need and it does it well. The modulated delays are my favorite sounds. Plus with the ability to save 4 tone prints and 3 presets my delay needs are more than satisfied! This is a large pedal so it will take up some real estate space on the pedal board...but considering all the features it has it's well worth the space.

                I love TC effects. They sound incredible, and I'm not disappointed with this one. It would be worth the price if it were just a delay, or looper, but it's both! I was about to get a looper when this came out, so I'm overjoyed to get this package.

                Here are some other points: I just got it, so I don't know about durability. It seems solid to me tho. It's a lot bigger than I expected from the picture, even the knobs are huge. There is no manual included, you have to go online and print one. I didn't know there was an AC adapter included, so that was a bonus. The AC seems cheap, but I think any standard adapter would work.
