Great news for Android owners! The TC Electronic TonePrint app is now available for you too! I’ve been using this on iOS with my Hall Of Fame Reverb pedal (review soon!) and it’s an amazing innovation.
Here’s the press release.
TC Electronic’s Revolutionary TonePrint App Now Available for Android
A few months ago TC Electronic launched its truly mind-blowing TonePrint® App for iPhone. Now the magic has been successfully ported for Android devices!
(Risskov, Denmark, 13 January 2012) The new app compiles all TonePrints for TC Electronic’s TonePrint enabled guitar pedals in one place and allows users to ‘beam’ new TonePrints to their pedals in a matter of seconds. The idea behind the technology is as simple as it is ingenious: Each TonePrint has been converted to a unique-sounding magnetic impulse that can be beamed via the phone’s internal speaker, through the pickup of a guitar and directly to a TonePrint pedal! The sound does not carry any data so it doesn’t matter if users are in a raucous arena or a library – no other sounds will interfere with the data being sent from the phone.
The app contains all TonePrints as mp3 files, which means that no Internet connection is required for beaming TonePrints. The phone’s speaker simply needs to be placed close to a magnetic guitar pickup when beaming, and it literally only takes seconds for the app to perform its magic. Best of all, the TonePrint app is completely free of charge.
“We are extremely proud to present a super-flexible solution that allows all guitarists with TonePrint pedals and an Android or iOS device to truly explore the ever-expanding list of great and unique TonePrints created by some of the best guitar players in the world,” says Guitar Product Manager at TC Electronic, Tore Lynggaard Mogensen. “Now great tones and tons of musical inspiration can be beamed and enjoyed on-the-spot as well as on-the-fly.”
