The new iPhone app compiles all TonePrints in one place and allows users to ‘beam’ new TonePrints to their pedals in a matter of seconds.

Risskov, Denmark (November 8, 2011) -- TC Electronic's new TonePrints iPhone 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 simple: Each TonePrint has been converted to a unique-sounding magnetic impulse that can be beamed via an iPhone’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 iPhone.

The app contains all TonePrints as mp3 files, which means that no Internet connection is required for beaming TonePrints. The iPhone’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. The app is currently available for iPhone, but a version for Android phones is under development and will be available in December 2011.

“When we launched the TonePrint concept, we knew that we eventually had to come up with a solution that made swapping TonePrints easier,” says Guitar Product Manager at TC Electronic, Tore Lynggaard Mogensen. “Most guitarists have their pedal board in a rehearsal space and their computer at home. Some may have brought a laptop, but the process still needed to be made faster and more intuitive to really take advantage of the great potential that this artist-driven concept has to offer. We are extremely proud to present a super-flexible solution that allows all guitarists with TonePrint pedals and an iPhone to truly explore the ever-expanding list of great and unique TonePrints created by some of the best guitar players in the world. Now great tones and tons of musical inspiration can be beamed and enjoyed on-the-spot as well as on-the-fly.”

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for blues music, but the blues scale can yield beguiling musical results that bear little resemblance to the traditional blues—particularly if one looks at (and listens to) the scale from a different point of view.
