Great Delay and Looper!
Bojack8108, 13.10.2019
The features on this pedal are great. The delay engines switch over very easy and the 6 banks with the presets are actually nice. I tried out the TonePrint stuff and it actually works.

The looper is quite useful, but it would have been really cool if you could use the delay engines and switch between them whilst having the looper active and recording.

The pedal really shines when used in stereo setups, which I mostly aim for. It does fab with the ambient stuff and does this well with 2 Amps. I really like the subs you can dial in and it makes dialing in the treasured dotted eighths really easy.

I like the chunkiness of it and looks really nice with the mix of other pedals I have. The dials are easy to use and the input/outputs at the back are very easy to use and setup.

Only thing annoying is that the power adapter that came with it, does not support our 3 point plugs. It is a standard 2 prong plug that came with the pedal.

So in all, I am pleased with this purchase.

tc electronic Flashback 2 X4 Delay
SashGinger, 18.11.2020
I used the flashback x4 of the first version for a long time, I used it with a guitar, and I really liked it, but the Flashback2 x4 definitely has changes for the better, and most of them are functional.
Firstly, it is the use of "mash" technology, secondly, the advanced capabilities of midi sync with other pedal and DAW, and most importantly, the advanced capabilities in the settings - + 6 toneprint slots + 2*3 delay presets, 11 subdivide, external switches on/off killdry, + new amazing! "CRYSTAL" delay type.
High-quality sound, I definitely recommend to those who use the delay as an important element of their guitar sound and those who just love delay sound :)

Fantastic, but not quite 'it' for me
97Tyson, 19.05.2020
There are some truly inspiring sounds in this pedal; it meets all the basic needs most guitarists are after easily, and even before the possibilities of toneprint are explored, there are some phenomenally strange sounds that inspire me to create. I'm glad to see that the analog delays now self-oscillate, but also that there are delay sounds that don't do that; one of my favourite things about the first Flashback was being able to use it to create a low-level, endless soundscape beneath my playing. There are a number of great quality of life improvements here: six soundbanks, more toneprint slots, and the inclusion of the absolutely incredible MASH function are wonderful. This pedal can do almost everything I want it to do (there are some unique sounds from other pedals that I can't recreate here, but the Flashback has its own array of unique sounds, so that's not something I hold against it).
My only real issue is that I can only do one of those things at a time; unlike the original Flashback x4, or the Triple King, the Flashback 2x4 seems to only be able to use one delay function at a time. Which is a shame, as I would love to be able to combine a more basic delay sound with one of the weirder, more ambient sounds. Still, my needs in that department are a little eccentric; I have a feeling that for the vast majority of people, this pedal will be everything they need, along with a whole lot of other things they hadn't even considered!

Very good, the looper is just a bit shorter than my needs
masik, 31.03.2021
This does the job for any delay stuff. Very complex, yet easy to use.
Amazing for its price.
If the looper was 5-10 seconds longer, it would have 6 stars instead of 4.
