    UTILIZATION

    use between my preamp and power amp in "line" input, so without the drive of the unit!!

    then so that I separated, I found indigestible!

    sounds are GORGEOUS!!

    I used mainly reverb / delay ... nothing to say super nice!!
    I moons hanging in the octave (oddly I prefer that my G3 zoom) ... the whammy effect is very convincing!!

    I used 3 months, I had to really cheap (150 €)!!
    for the price of 3 pedals, there is a tons of effects and sounds!

    on the other hand I add an exp pedal and midi mouse ... there was everything you need except the simplicity!!
    unintuitive, many hyper settings, I separated, although the sound is very nice but I did not dare touch it when I found an effect that nothing sounded good.

    So very good camera but not easy to access!

    the effects I used are delay with tap tempo (ie top that!) overdrive may be lacking a bit of fishing, but it's still a good overdrive, distortion is not bad at all, and I loved: the octave! may be the expression pedal to resemble the whammy, but the sound of octaves and a more realistic-that it is missing!
    I have not kept because there are many effects that I have ever used and I prefer to look exactly each pedal! but for a multi-effect is really good!

    TC Electronic Nova SystemPublished on 11/10/13 at 23:37
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    All effects that needs a guitarist in the form of bracket. Digital circuit with an analog distortion. The connection is complete.

    UTILIZATION

    The Nova is a bit difficult to take in hand to the extent that its effects are editable. Better prepare his set before going on stage. The manual explains how to include the effects. The technique.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effects are effective. Do not stop the presets that do not reflect the potential of the machine. I use it for electric guitar but it also works very well on an acoustic and a bass.
    If we take the trouble to adjust with particular less impact than the presets supplied, it works very well.

    I use it since I bought it. I tried a bunch of models before: pedals, racks etc ... I appreciate its compact size, the fact that it is extremely well built. The Q / P ratio is very good. I recommend.

    SOUND QUALITY

    reverbs and delays at the top.
    chorus hold up the tremolos are very beautiful but generate breath on extreme settings

    distos and overdrive are not unusable if it compared to what I've read ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    6 months, it is necessary that I tamed.
    So no reviews yet decided.
    all this in the price halluciant some pedals, the value for money is excellent.
    it makes a lot of things and does not take up too much space in the pedal board.

    is objectively much better than Zoom xx xx GT boss or audio quality.

    No PC Edition / MAC

    Very solid pedal metal
    No on / off switch

    UTILIZATION

    So use .... !

    I have to admit I bought this equipment on the advice of a professional musician friend guitarist, and also general reviews lurking here & there on the Internet ...

    Let's start with the manual (!) No person seems to be the adjective that best matches the user manual, unintuitive, this manual is intended for technicians used devices of all kinds!

    Then the camera: Again, big disappointment for me, if the basic settings seem to be pretty well arranged, the menu navigation and more generally all the knobs of the device is tedious, not at all friendly and above must be absolutely connoisseur of all frequencies to be used for fine tuning as moult settings are in terms of frequency (Hertz) so who knows nothing and instead used to adjust knobs classic style Line 6 Pod may worry! This is typically the type of device that stresses you out completely if you live and there is no output volume: you will have to enter the menu and check data 50 to ensure that there has the volume!

    SOUND QUALITY

    This is the highlight of this device: the quality of effects!

    There is nothing to complain about all the effects present in the Nova System, all "subcategories" confused ... Very good reverb, great delays, chorus, flanger, octave etc. ... If you manage to adjust and refine the sound especially when you can not be disappointed, because they are really clean.

    One disappointment: the Drive "Disto / Overdrive ... So then I did not understand ... The settings are very limited, and its messy, confused ... Yet I tried several combinations but to no avail Compared to ... - would it - a Vox Tonelab Ex, there is no picture!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used six months in 2010 and I just dropped because of its use tedious ... To finally come back, because you realize that there really is no good multi effects for acoustic guitars live and the TC NOVA SYSTEM seems to be the best compromise to date for this purpose. The sound, it is true, are enhanced with effects that TC contains.

    What I like +:

    - Very good clean effects, pure
    - The strength of the unit
    - The handy light switches on stage
    - The "Boost" function ideal for solos

    What I like -:

    - Config tedious requiring advanced technical knowledge management (Hertz)
    - Quality Drive (Overdrive / distortion) nonexistent and unusable for me
    - No on / off switch!
    - Zero update for 2 years while a SHIFT is necessary, if only at the level of the external pedal that can be connected: it never worked for either me or my friend, or for several users who have complained on the forums!

    I would do this choice ... lack of choice currently on multi effects specifically dedicated to acoustic guitars!

    For specs, see the complete specifications. This is the TC Electronic, so this is pro!
    2 preamps (OD and Disto) are ideal for register my blues / pop / rock / funk. There's no ultra-modern Metal saturation typed, it will sound rather clean the fat, all that I love.

    UTILIZATION

    Simple configuration is selected the effect parameters are adjusted with the buttons on the right and the program is saved.

    for each effect can save the setting to one of the 4 buttons "favorites" in the upper left. Then we go to another preset and can recall the setting of Dlay that had previously added to favorites ... a child's play.

    for each effect can save the setting to one of the 4 buttons "favorites" in the upper left. Then we go to another preset and can recall the setting of Dlay that had previously added to favorites ... a child's play.

    Each preset has a name in any letters, lots easier than remembering two months after that to play such a piece must remember the 5-3 program ;)

    Regarding the manual, it is sufficient to put the pedal in hand and eventually learn how each affects the sound effect. That said this is not a highly technical (like how to properly adjust the PreDelay a reverb), a sound engineer might find this book a little lighter. For me who am not, this is sufficient.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I have a Fender Strat and a modified Champ25 (Electro-Harmonix 12AX7 + Celestion Black Shadow). Here are the details of my chain:
    - Guitar
    - Tuner
    - Noise reduction Boss NS-2 "Input"
    - NS-2 "Send"> my preamp combo
    - Output effects loop combo "Send"
    - SansAmp GT2 preamp
    - Nova System on the Drive input
    - Back on the "return" of the Boss NS-2
    - Boost Electro Harmonix LPB-1
    - Dunlop Volume Pedal
    - "Return" of the effects loop combo to the power stage.

    The advantage of the Nova System is that you can enable / disable effects and preamp. So I use the major part of the time the preamp clean channel of my combo, while disabling the preamp of the Nova System. After I have the opportunity to add crunch with my SansAmp and / or preamp Nova System because it makes me 3 preamps online, so a lot of opportunity to grains.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I once had a multi-purpose rack Alesi Quadraverb bought used around 1994/95. Some say it was excellent stuff, months I did not like the sound of too Dlay too metal for my taste. When it burned I played many years without any effects. Thereafter I had gone to get me a pedalboard with pedals that unit. When it came to choosing what to buy reverb and delay, I've tried several brands, and I was most impressed by the Nova Reverb and Nova Delay with very soft sounds very "analog". on the other hand in terms of price, these two pedals were bcp more expensive (€ 150/180 unit in hand).

    The Nova System incorporates the same circuits as those two pedals, and offers the added ability to make presets with bonus 2 preamps, compression, modulation effects ... it was bcp economically more interesting and use I do not regret my choice, value for money unbeatable if like me you bought this pedal around € 250 on occasion.

    MORE:
    - BOOST and TAP-TEMPO useful
    - It sounds analog, round and warm, just what I like
    - Easy adjustment of different parameters
    - Light interface that allows to navigate in the darkness of the stage
    - Solid steel case, footswitches resistant, compact size

    LEAST:
    - Tuner function impractical, better not count on it.
    - Noisegate function not top, I finally found. a Boss NS-2 and the problem is solved ^ ^
    - Function equalizer not easy when you have not used the EQ parametrics
    - Like any pedal settings output volume require a lot of preparation before the scene (why I kept my old boost pedal in my chain)
    - Program changes are not instantaneous, they need to hold down the footswitch 1 sec to be initiated + QLQ-tenths of a second to be switched on when the footswitch is released. Perhaps by adding the "G-Switch" that simplify changes preset to see ...

    After 3 months of intensive use, I do not regret my choice, it's the bomb baby! The sound of my guitar is respected and dynamic remains excellent, not like some other pedals (like Line6 and other digital modeling).
    Is not such a fan of modulation effects at the base, I even learned to appreciate small dose (flanger, chorus, phaser, detune) as they are also of very good quality.

    And if he Crame, I'd do anything to redeem the same so I love it.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effects are good good quality, very nice reverbs, delays beautiful,
    I also liked the octave and phaser, chorus can be I do not like it after I personally find they lack heat, I think it will suit very well to a person wanting to spend time and make a beautiful sound, a little air, I returned in a Koch Studiotone, clear channel, it did me well but in the end I found my sound better without effects, in the end I love the big rock with his thick ILI, an orange head and 2x12

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used one for years before putting it aside, saying that I would come back and then I finally got rid of it, in the end I would say it's very good stuff, but that suited me not. I wanted to delay reverb, a little modulation on some sound octave type phaser and then finally I no longer played guitar, I became a sound engineer (no offense)
    To summarize I would say it is excellent if you feel ready to invest in the machine, but it takes more time than I thought or a Cartesian brain than mine

    I'm a Guy who hates no-stop fiddling with the pedals. I love and support Hop sounds, well I must say that this nova CLOSER this and that for a multi-effect is very easy to use. I took 1 hour to master.

    I'm a Guy who hates no-stop fiddling with the pedals. I love and support Hop sounds, well I must say that this nova CLOSER this and that for a multi-effect is very easy to use. I took 1 hour to master.

    I put 8.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Then effect level there's nothing to say, this is the effective. We must also say that they are all impression its big brother the G-system ...

    The small downside for me is the overdrive that does not satisfy me.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had five months, and before that I had individual pedals. The practical side without sacrificing quality my enchanted.

    Value / price: 9

    I remake that choice with alacrity.

    UTILIZATION

    Many adjustable parameters, manic sound, there is something. Still time to spare. The documentation is very well done. I never saw because I refereed between two paths: I wanted to spend time to generate great sounds or improve my guitar playing to the scene? I chose the second option and I sold the TC Nova System. I imagine that complementary Midi pedal could satisfy both possibilities ... not wanted.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound quality is impressive, I would write again "unusual." Incomparably better than that afforded me my multi effects Vox Tonelab LE, Boss, Zoom, etc. ..; earlier. réeelement very well.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I sold it after I realized that I was "Plug and Play" programmer that sounds very high quality. Since I switched to single pedals ((TS9, Headrush, CS3, EC20 BF2 modded, etc ...) MUCH oriented game Live. And it suits me better. It does not detract from the excellence of the Nova System great product for anyone who is either home studio almost time to invest in programming sounds very high level.

    Note 8 is for anyone who has time to devote to it.

    If you're the type I plug and play ... it can not be the product for you and I mettaris 6

    Presumably if you're reading this you arrive to find caracs the gear on the TC website. And its instructions and tutorial videos handy.

    UTILIZATION

    The setup is fairly simple, but it is relatively complete, recess is a little more complicated and slower than a set of effects pedal with all the separate buttons (above the pod HD seems to me still more immediate ).

    Reverb, a ton of adjustment is not obvious to understand what they are and it takes the ass pounding fly, but hey, it works in general.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Effects of superb quality.

    OVERALL OPINION

    SOUND QUALITY

    Effects of superb quality.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I'll go in my opinion.
    Compared to other devices fuller potential levels the sound quality is there, every guitar gives a different result. In addition the machine is really designed to be connected to the input of a guitar amp, and in this context it sounds better than a lot of other things that are sometimes boiled.


    Level features gear is really well thought out, there is the essential matérielement it lacks in my opinion nothing major.
    What could be more:
    - An outlet for switching amp (it's not always easy to implement) if we want to use it in the effects loop it would have been welcome (especially for EMMC bums me quin have not driven swithching pm)
    One-(or two) small loops to insert his favorite distortion pedal.
    - Obviously a loop to walk four son it would have been great but it is matièrelement longer the same price.

    Programing on:
    - This is generally not done wrong, the editor would have been a more PC.
    - Appoint a preset is a bit long.
    - Setting levels require making back and forth between two menus, it's not too boring, but it is not what is best.
    - Some effects tend to be set for stereo, mono must be a little careful.
    - Great idea to be able to save the effect settings for import into another preset. Basically, the flanger preset that I like, I copy and I glue in my preset.


    Sound level can effect all this:
    - The effects he did not miss any of my critical sense. And most importantly they sound great property.
    - Big Boost for more that is con but it's really a great idea.
    - The tap tempo and tuner are there (classqiue but it's still really better with).
    - Functioning as set pedal is great. With a small pedal next to the presets for switching is even better, but it takes more space.

    On the ease of getting a good sound, or the sound you want:
    There is much less obvious, you really become familiar with the action of each setting, watch downloaded presets, to understand the effect of each parameter. Sometimes watching how the phaser was set on a preset, I was surprised I could not set the effect like that for it.
    In brief must tame the beast that is not always obvious, it opens in exchange quite a field of possibility.

    The distos:
    It's not always easy to get the distortion sound you want.
    The od and distortion are good qualities are no doubt the grain color is good too, but:
    This is a bit light, a big fat fuzz distortion and a big slobbery metallers I still would not spit.
    The tone control, I do not know, it's not like a beast SD1. Distos the blows were fast enough you tend to ask parametric equalizer uses, this one is super powerful, but in return it is frankly difficult to resolve.


    Basically, this is great stuff, the sound quality is there, ergonomics is correct, but you still manage to tame it.
