Hot on the heels of the awesome new quartet of mini pedals recently announced, TC Electronic and my good pals at ProGuitarShop have teamed up to create a new delay pedal geared towards vintage-style tones, building on the success of their earlier pedal the Alter Ego Delay and incorporating the functionality of the awesome Flashback X4 Delay. Called the Alter Ego X4 Vintage Echo, it gives you four TonePrint slots, three programmable presets, a looper, stereo ins and outs, MIDI programmability and the ability to control any parameter with an expression pedal. Here’s the press release…
Risskov, Denmark, June 16th 2014 – TC Electronic and ProGuitarShop team up once again to build upon their former smash hit, the Alter Ego Delay, which with its two exclusive vintage echo sounds made every delay-loving guitarist out there solo their socks off. Now TC Electronic’s and ProGuitarShops’s unrivaled love for delay has resulted in no less than 12 exclusive delay tones that all hark back to the beautifully lush and saturated delays of yesteryear.
Alter Ego X4 Vintage Echo contains everything from sweet, ambient Space Echo type sounds, crisp and saturated EchoPlex tones, the unique magnetic drum delays of the legendary Binson Echorec, a lovely modulated take on TC Electronic’s own 2290 delay, and much much more.
On top of this you get all the modern features of TC Electronic’s original Flashback X4 Delay, which include 4 TonePrint slots, 3 programmable presets, a 30 second looper, stereo in/out, MIDI programmability and you can even hook up an expression pedal in order to control any delay paramater via your foot.
So with the new Alter Ego X4 Vintage Echo you get all of the vintage sounds you could possibly desire, with all the modern features required by today’s musicians.
