    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!

    entire interface is complicated, many settings are not at all intuitive!!

    SOUND QUALITY

    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!!
    ok chorus, tremolo blah (I have not managed to settle it as I want) ....

    short full of thing ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    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.

    Each preset has a name in any letters, lots easier than remembering......

    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.
