TC Electronic Unveils the Flashback 2 Delay

The company's flagship delay pedal returns with MASH, ultra-realistic analog & tape delays, plus crystal delay.

Risskov, Denmark (June 20, 2017) -- Following the release of the Hall of Fame 2 Reverb, most people probably guessed that a successor to a certain blue TonePrint pedal was in the pipe.

Today, TC Electronic is announcing Flashback 2 Delay and it’s loaded with cool features!

First and foremost – Flashback 2 got a MASH makeover!

The time-honored tradition of knob-twisting on delay pedals for spacecraft oscillations is easier than ever with MASH. The effects go from subtle to radical with complete dynamic control.

MASH Unleashed

But the crown jewel of Flashback 2 Delay is that MASH can be made to manipulate almost any aspect of the pedal with the free TonePrint Editor, giving you much more than just a delay pedal.

Set MASH to control signal level to work like a volume pedal, modulation depth on the delayed repeats, or in the Dynamic mode, control the ducking of the delay. The sky is not the limit. There are no limits.

Making the best even better

As a company with a distinguished delay heritage, TC Electronic is not resting on its laurels with Flashback 2.

The guys in TC’s tech department redesigned the Analog and Tape algorithms from top to bottom, painstakingly reproducing the sound and feel of the originals.

The new algorithms display all the musical idiosyncrasies of the old designs, including wow and flutter imperfections, warm modulation and natural treble or bass degradation of the repeats.

Topping it off, Flashback 2 is also the first pedal to feature Crystal delay, evolved from the idea of Shimmer reverb and remolded to a delay effect, courtesy of TC’s own polyphonic octave algorithm from Sub ‘N’ Up.
