TC Electronic Announces Flashback X4 Delay and Looper

Flashback X4 offers 12 delay types plus 4 TonePrint slots executed in exquisite world-renowned TC Electronic quality.

Risskov, Denmark (September 20, 2012) – TC Electronic is proud to announce Flashback X4 Delay and Looper, the next generation of the smash hit Flashback Delay and Looper. 

Flashback X4 offers 12 delay types plus 4 TonePrint slots executed in exquisite world-renowned TC Electronic quality. Other features include full TonePrint functionality including the ability to beam TonePrints from a smartphone, three presets, a dedicated tap tempo and expression pedal input.

Rounding out the package is a 40 second looper with ‘undo’ function and guaranteed optimal signal integrity via a True Bypass signal path that can also be switched to buffered bypass if the situation so demands.

“Flashback X4 is the pedal we simply had to do,” says Tore Mogensen, Product Manager for Guitar at TC Electronic, and continues: “I think we’ve proven over the years that innovation, quality and delivering products that make a difference matters most to us. It still does and it always will. But we also naturally fit right in the middle of the guitar community. We’re all guitarists ourselves.  We love going to concerts, we have an ever-expanding endorsement roster and just one look at our TonePrint program tells the world that we love this stuff. Lots and lots of the players we speak to use Flashback Delay and it turned out that presets on a delay pedal was a big deal for guitarists. We took that and added to it all of our knowledge, heritage and love for delays - from the famous 2290 to beautiful tape-echoes - and poured it into Flashback X4. I think the result is nothing less than stunning. We handpicked every delay type that has a place in both music’s history and future and then put them in a pedal that’s totally easy to operate. And to that, we simply added guitarists. Flashback X4 really is collaboration between us guitar geeks here at TC and the guitar community. We've talked to tons of guitar players over the last year or two and scoured the forums soaking up information about what guitar players would like from a multi-function delay - and Flashback X4 is the direct result. It's the delay you deserve!”

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
