This is quite a machine

This is a great stomp box and has many good preset Delays! However, the beauty is in it's 'TonePrint' feature that will enable anybody to get the desired effects they want... And it even comes with a Looper to get layered effects with the Delay preset.... Wonderful!!!

Great New Delay!

Excellent delay for my applications (church contemporary worship music). True bypass, so its super quiet. It runs on, i believe 250 mA, so lots of headroom. Very usable delays; the 2290 Mod delay Nails the U2 thing/Hillsong stuff. I like the large black knobs for easy adjustments while giging. Looper is usable: i can record a Whole verse and play solos over it with ease. Overall, a very solid built and intuitively designed pedal.

It took awhile to get it right but was sure worth it!

This is a long review, but I need to clarify a couple of things. It seems that maybe TC Electronics let these out of the factory a bit prematurely, based on my experience and some of the chatter I have seen in reviews. I had problems with the looper not working on my first unit, and then was not able to get the tap delay to work on another. Toneprints would not load on any of them. They sent a third unit and I still could not get the TonePrints to download. I was frustrated, because i have the Corona Chorus and was digging the Android-Toneprint-straight-into-my-guitar-thing. I need to say that both Sweetwater and TC Elect provided world class service to me and stayed in touch with me over the Holidays. Very cool!! We got through this and it was worth it. So as it turns out, TC had to update their app, which was done about the first week of this year. However, I could not download it because I first had to re-do the firmware on my 2010 Android,. (That took about 2 hrs and all of the technical patience and knowledge I could muster.) However now it works!! And it is very cool!! Let me share a couple of other things. This unit is a power hungry device, however i am able to use it fine (so far) with the One Spot in my pedalboard. I have decided to go back and use the original power cord from TC "just in case", but there has been no functional difference. Also, the looper works very well, and it is a high quality, I think 24 bit, looper.. I wish it was 15 seconds longer, but ... Last thing -if this unit did not do toneprints and had no looper, it would probably still be worth the money. I really believe this device inspires, motivates, captivates, and elevates my musical creativity. I really, really like it. It is a game changer.

When the TC Electronic Flashback X4 delay first came to market, I had to have it. It's incredibly clean with a ton of headroom. The presets are really useable and with the new TonePrint Editor, the TonePrint options are limitless . It's a permanent fixture on my pedalboard. It even works great with an acoustic guitar!

I love delay pedals. I have many in my collection, and each one is slightly different. But what I really want is a pedal with tap tempo and a few presets. The big thing this delay needs is an input for an expression pedal for real-time control over a parameter (usually delay level) when I'm onstage. Imagine how thrilled I was when the TC Electronic Flashback X4 showed up! Not only does it have three delay presets and 12 delay types (including several brand-new types, such as Space and Tube), tap tempo, and an expression pedal input, but it also has a 40-second looper -- and you can load in up to four TonePrints from TC for additional delay types! It even has MIDI for syncing delay time to tempo or for changing presets. Other features include three rhythmic delay subdivisions, analog dry through, true-bypass or buffered operation, independent loop and delay engines, and more. The Flashback X4has the same quality delays as the original Flashback, a pedal I love. It's simple to operate. It has tons of features and control options. I have found my ultimate gigging delay!
