OUR PART # FLASHBACK-X4
TC Electronics delay and looper based on the popular Flashback delay pedal.
Flashback X4 essentially does two things: minimize hassle and maximize sounds. It’s simple to operate but has many options, while the sounds and TonePrint functionality span the complete spectrum of delay in the most musical way possible.
Mix and match
The subdivision selector on Flashback X4 allows you to choose quarter notes or dotted eights, but has a nifty feature that allows you to select or mix either/both when using dual delays. This adds flexibility, creativity and unexpected results.
Time is on your side
Turn this dial all the way down for really short repeats. Turn up until you find your preferred amount of delay. With 7 seconds of delay, Flashback X4 can make your music as spacious and wide as your creativity.
No, this is not the Marshall-like squeal we know and love, but it does allow you to set the number of repeats you want from short and snappy to a total timewarp.
Flashback X4’s controls and I/O options are aimed at one thing: making life easier for you. Dialing in sounds, loading TonePrints and integrating X4 into your set-up is a breeze. There are Mono and Stereo options and even an expression pedal port, allowing you to control any delay parameter available.
Room To Rock
Flashback X4 is equipped with 4 TonePrint slots, allowing you to load your favorite signature delay effects as done by the artists on our TonePrint roster. Oh, and since this is the 21st. century, you can load TonePrints via your smartphone.
12 delay types plus 4 TonePrints are at your disposal
Loopy for creativity
Flashback X4 has a 40 second looper with ‘undo’ function to speed up workflow and increase fun.
In Flashback X4, the delay engine is completely separate from the one handling looping. This means total dedication to the sound you want to get and the cool ability to add delay to your loops.
The world at your feet
The most requested feature from the original Flashback Delay - presets. Here they are, three presets at your disposal.
Maximum signal integrity
Flashback X4 goes with the flow like our other TonePrint enabled pedals. Whatever your set-up or situation, Flashback X4 can adapt and guarantee optimal signal integrity - via small dip switches, Flashback X4 can be set to either True Bypass or Buffered Bypass.
Creativity at your own tempo
Instantly sync up your delays with your band’s tempo, the ideas in your head or whatever else is guiding you without taking your hands of the guitar or bending over the pedal. Simply tap the tempo with your foot.
Can’t touch this
Flashback X4 features an analog-dry-through which ensures your natural, dry signal remains unaffected and is never converted to digital. This results in a more natural, warmer sound.
X4 gives great headroom
From guitar to amp-FX-loop signals, Flashback X4 handles anything you throw at it with ease.
Flashback X4s total dedication to delay shines brightly in the expression pedal input. Many guitarists dream to have direct control over delay parameters and Flashback X4 gives you exactly that. But it’s just not one parameter you can control, you can choose to control either the delay time, the feedback or the delay level of your sounds, giving you unprecedented control.
No time wasted - plug and go!
One of life’s nice little surprises is that Flashback X4 comes with a power supply included, so you dont have to waste any time and can get straight to rocking.
USB / Beam
Yes - there’s a USB port but it’s not just for boring stuff! Free updates of course. You can also load TonePrints via the USB, but also use the TonePrint app on smartphones. It works wirelessly and flawlessly and it’s also totally free.
I/O stealing the show
Flashback X4 allows for MIDI clock sync - perfecting delay times to your exact wishes. You can change presets and control X4 externally, for example if you want to have it in a rack or safely setup in your backline.
