    Just saw the demo video and it looks impressive. The other thing is it’s super flexible and it seems easy to use and change all kinds of parameters on the fly. I don’t know the pricing, but it is definitely an interesting concept. I don’t need one, but if it’s not too expensive I could see using it when you need to travel light.

    I didn’t see if you could plug headphones into it and if you can it might be a must have item.

    Bluetooth app connection? Now I’m interested.

    Trying to figure out whether it is strictly serial routing or allows for parallel.

    i don't believe headphones are an option, but it's not really what the pedal is for anyways - there's no amp/drives anyways so a headphone out would probably not sound great

    My interest is piqued. It really comes down to the price on this for me. Has anyone heard? I'm guessing $700 range or so in the U.S. given it's 5 $130-$160 pedals, but there's probably some economies in fewer knobs, chassis, pots, etc.

    I love the TC 2290 delay in the Flashback 1 & 2 and if this is priced right can be a great 4CM option for my tube heads. I also have my Helix for this, but....new/shiny.....

    Hadn't seen this yet. Looks pretty sick. And before I even saw the price mentioned I was thinking $399 seemed about right.

    Thanks. I’m probably in at that price.

    Can it route effects and drives (gain pedals on its loops) in parallel. That'd be awesome as I've been planning on assembling a board revolving around that concept using the Wetter Box or Chase Bliss's Brothers+Dark World.

    Also, can you modulate knob functions with this thing perhaps via its editor?

    I was guessing $399 as well with an outside chance of $349. Add in a prymaxe discount and it might be a fun, versatile and affordable toy to get lost in.

    I would assume a looper uses different tech/parts than their other pedals? Not sure though. Would be cool to drop in 5 loopers for crazy sound on sound stuff.

    I'm probably gonna incorporate this into my mini board. Mini Fuzz Face, mini Klone, TS mini, and a Black Secret. Followed by the Plethora and then a Spark Mini at the very end.

    Looks great. I'd be all over an X3 though for 200ish, just as a modulation/special sounds thing. Truth be told I tried an HX effects and didn't like the sounds and have been impressed with TC before. Going either this or H9 now for special effects engine

    Yeah. H9 is badass, but only one effect at a time. If this can do parallel routing or, better yet, let you put pedals in the wet path of other pedals (e.g. on just delay repeats), this starts to look like a serious competitor even for more complex effects.

    More than one thread on TGP concerning TC's footswitches.
