    ... to the same parameters as "the world's best guitarists" . I own a hall of fame and i find it odd and a little juvenile to rely on what other people have tweaked.

    Obviously, the ability software is there so why not give this privilege to the folk that forked put a hundred and odd quid.

    I will guess that after awhile TC Electronic will release a software package for it, or a reverse-engineered package will appear.

    i suppose there's an argument it's a dsp chip therefore you could - i dunno turn a hall of fame into a flashback or something... but surely, there'd taylor it to a specific pedal.... i'd like a shimmer reverb

    The editor is probably designed for their engineers and reworking it for consumers could vost a lot of money that they dont want to spend right now.

    That's my guess also. I do some programming and it's one thing to make something work, it's another altogether to make it professional, attractive, and user friendly. I bet we see this option for the Tone Print series or some other product in the future, but it may take a while.

    I always expected that it would be too easy to make the pedal do anything you want. If you think about it, time based effects have largely the same parameters, so any of the pedals could overlap if given that much control, which would really hurt sales IMO.

    I doubt the "signature tones" are actually programmed by the artists themselves. They probably say, "here's what I like/want" then they send them a tone print to test, they say if they need tweaks and then go from there.

    There are a couple videos of someone from TC sitting down with artists and co-developing the Toneprints. It is definitely quite possibly you are right for many of them, but some have direct input during the design.

    They have videos of pretty much every artist that has a tone print. It shows the guys making the toneprints with Tore as they play.
