Great Effects in a Compact Pedalboard!The TC Electronic Nova System guitar effects processor gives you analog sounds and digital control, packed into a compact floor pedal unit that's perfect for onstage use. The eight dedicated footswitches onboard the Nova System allow you to access and control an amazing range of effects, easily. Analog distortion and overdrive tones can be tweaked to your taste, and modulation, delay, and reverb effects are taken from the TC's incredible G-System processor for great sound. If you want reliable, adjustable effects at your feet, step on a Nova System!
TC Electronic Nova System Guitar Effects Floor Processor at a Glance:
Nova System is the complete, floor-based effects solution for the dedicated guitar player who knows quality when he sees it. Its unique inclusion of an all-analog programmable distortion/overdrive section under preset and expression control makes it the perfect choice whether you want to trim down your rack setup, step up from your pedal patchwork or simply just want the ultimate combination of operational simplicity and audio superiority. Add to this an array of effects taken straight from the king of floor-based processors; G-System and you have top-notch compression, EQ, noise gate, modulation, pitch, delay and reverb right at your feet. All you need is a guitar and an amp and you're good to go.
Analog drive circuit
What makes Nova System so remarkably different is the Nova Drive Technology (NDT) - a unique, new drive and distortion circuit that gets you the best of both worlds: World-class analog distortion and overdrive with digital control. This is the real deal - no modeling. While the NDT is 100 percent analog and physically separated from the digital effects, its control potmeters are digital. This way you can tweak, store and recall as many drive settings as you want - you can even hook up an expression pedal and control the amount of distortion in real-time. Its wide gain range covers your every need from light breakup to heavy distortion.
Equipped with TC branded quality effects from delays and reverbs to compressor, EQ and modulation, Nova System is the obvious all-in-one solution for any guitarist who wants setup simplicity without sacrificing tonal fidelity. All neatly programmable and storable in 60 user presets. Its 30 factory presets give you a demonstration of just what this unit provides; great sound quality and an immense versatility of effects combinations - all designed to get you started right out of the box.

TC Electronics Nova System Review
by Richard Hughes from Little Rock, AR USAI was skeptical in buying an "all-in-one" kind of effects processor because I used to own one of the lower end digitech multieffects pedals when I was a beginner and even then knew that it was a total... read more [+] tone destroyer. Much to my surprise, the Nova system is -nothing- like that at all. I've barely even scratched the surface on setting presets etc., but just the ability to add and subtract the effects individually instead of having to program presets is amazing. The tone is incredible as well. I am blown away at how much the guitar and amp retain their tonal character when you play with the Nova system in the effects loop. The drive is very cool, and I'm sure quite a few people will get a lot of use out of it but it was a bit much for me since I usually just play with the amp (my egnater tweaker combo) barely breaking up. If I wanted heavier crunch though it is definitely usable. I read somewhere, most likely on a youtube comment about this pedal that someone was curious about it's ability to go into the ethereal, weird realm with spacey delays and I can say that, if you are a good enough player, it definitely can. I have to admit though, it was a lot easier for me personally to get that with a digitech dd7, so I'd recommend one of those or something similar if you are looking for that kind of stuff. All in all, the Nova system is well constructed, easy to use, and above all a great investment in your tone for a price like the $300 that they are currently going for. I strongly considered saving more and getting the g system, and I guess I'll never know if I made the right choice until I try it, but for my purposes (mostly small gigs and home practice) I think the Nova system is definitely enough. It will add color and great effects that are blended in just enough to flavor your tone without changing it, which I think makes it a good buy for literally any style of guitar playing. I do have to admit that I think there is an issue with my line in jack above the drive in because it has been unresponsive, but it hasn't effected my ability to use the pedal for what I do so I'm not going to bother sending it back. I could totally understand anyone who would though given how much you are spending on the pedal. close [-]

Awesome control for your guitar effects system!
by Jeffrey Thibeau from Bangor, Maine USAThe TC Nova System is, without a doubt, the best floor-based effects system for guitar that I have ever used...PERIOD. Construction is solid, sturdy, and ergonomically perfect for a floor-based sys... read more [+]tem. The unit is constructed of a nice lightweight, but sturdy, metal chassis, rugged but easy to click switching buttons, and incorporates a nice rugged detachable a.c. cord for power (no wall warts here!) . Sonically, the unit uses TC's world famous reverbs, delays, and modulation effects to make for some of the BEST guitar-based tones I have ever heard. All of the effects are pristine and transparent, and the unit's effects routing and in/out options allow for optimal guitar to amp connection and signal path. I am using the unit through my amp's effects loop to access ONLY the effects blocks.....bypassing the analog front-end drive section (although I did try out the Nova Drive section, and it COULD be used in the front end for some really convincing and usable overdrive and crunch/lead tones). Unity gain is easily achieved with the unit's level controls, and when used through the effects loop, the sounds are truly transparent and crystal clear, without "muddying" my tone at all. Operation is simple and intuitive, and I only had to crack the manual a handful of times.....simple hookup, simple use, and the effects are SUPER simple to tweak to your liking. Although I am only using probably 3/4 of the unit's capabilities, I still was able to use the TC to cover my old dinosaur pedalboard's functions, and slim down my gigging rig (i cleared about a foot and a half of floor space with this baby....now i can move around a little without having to roam 3 acres of pedalboard to get to that delay or chorus pedal) ....amp channel switcher, TC unit, and wah pedal....done. All the effects i could ever use right at my feet, with infinate tweakability to taylor my sounds and suit my playing and sound stylings. And this is all without even using any of the TC's built-in presets! Just pick an effect, hit the button, adjust the parameters to taste (easy to do!!), hit store, and yer done! Instant lush chorus for clean passages, pristine reverbs to go from small room reflection to huge stadium or cavernous air, great delay section for mr. pink-esque spacey stuff, nice modualtion block for tremelo or vibrato effects, and the "boost" button is a real bonus.....instant solo level!! Overall this TC Nova System is a HUGE winner in my book. Anyone looking to slim down their current floor setup, consolidate effects, or just utilize the BEST transparent and lush digital effects, should give this unit a try. And i can't wait to get it into the studio, where I am sure the TC will shine just as brightly as it does on my stage every weekend. For the price of half your current digital pedal array, you can step up to studio-quality guitar effects in a sturdy, compact, easy to use unit. 5 stars all the way for the TC Nova System!! close [-]
