    I have the original flashback and the alter ego x4, I may be crazy, but I don't like what I'm hearing in the flashback 2 clips

    You can fully control the mod on the v1 in the toneprint app, so there isn’t any reason to suspect this one doesn’t do the same.

    I use an expression pedal that controls repeats and the tap tempo button so I also have two free knobs I can assign however I want; three if I also consider the level knob I never change. It’s pretty flexible - the size is annoying when I put it on my board, but the foot switches are nicely spaced. Even still, I still frequently accidentally engage one of the other two delays when turning the B preset on or off, but I’m clumsy sometimes and don’t often pay close attention there.

    I've been very curious about this pedal. I've had it for a month now and I can say that it sounds really nice. It is big, yeah, but it has 4 switches. My favorite modes are Tape, Dynamic, and Reverse. I don't know how many people know this but it keeps the trails when changing presets! Things I'm not a fan of are the Analog mode and the lack of multi tap/rhythmic delay. The TonePrint editor is great for creating more interesting sounds. I will share my TonePrints when I have them ready.
    Here is a video I made with it:

    Try the analog toneprint from Syu, it's very good.

    This can create granular loops. I also included this in my demo but thought it deserved its own video.

    Cool. Can you get artifacts of A, B, and C going onat the same time?

    Two can go on at the same time. If a third preset is activated, the trails of the first one is lost.

    So will this only work with the FlashbackX4 2 and not the original FlashbackX4 (and Alter Ego X4)?

    I’m not sure but it would be nice if someone who owned one of those can confirm it.
