    Would be nice if they sold a dock with four or so connected pedals already wired in series, one power supply and you could throw in the modules you like for each gig, change the order, etc.

    I don't know how quick they are to change (even though I have a couple), but I could see playing one setup for a cover band during the week and then changing out for a weekend fusion or rock gig.

    But yes, DURING a set, I agree - impossible.

    Mr Vettaville - the section on your website dated 13-10-05 seems to indicate that the ToneCores have been modular all along and that it's just now that the individual modules are being sold separately. Is that true?

    Because that's different from the impression given by the press release.

    You may recall from my post on another forum that I'm not blown away by the modularity. Looks to me like someone could end up with a box full of modules gathering dust while they have just one or two of the base stations. However, a multi-module base does make some sense.

    The current price list shows that the cost of a full pedal is the same as a base plus the module. Are the full pedals going to still be sold as such, or just the base and module parts individually?

    First, you can call me Hans
    As far as I'm aware of, Tonecores (as a complete pedal) will still be offered, you just will get an additional possibillity to change/buy modules. If this is what a certain player would want.

    The post on my website is correct. They have been modular all along however there was no way to buy the modules seperate. This is now offered.

    On Vettaville.nl it was explained how to it and what advantages it could have. This doesn't mean that players should / would do it however they could. At that point I made some videos showing it.
    I removed one (without being aware) that I've uploaded again today.
    you can find it at the link

    hope it answers you questions

    Wow, is it safe to leave it "unlocked"? I stand corrected about the impossibility during a set if being "unlocked" is okay...

    ...so when my Echo Park goes into its "unbearable hiss" mode, I can just pull out the module and throw it away? Thanks Line6! :rolleyes:

    if you've seen both videos, you can see there's a spring mechanism that locks the module even though the screws aren't fastened. The module stays in.

    This would be a really interesting update if you could get a two, four, or six socket base that didn't buzz like a hive of bees.

    Is your experience buzzy too? Try as I might, I CAN'T get my Echo Park to make a hum or buzz noise! I even use a daisy chain OneSpot!!!

    Maybe I got lucky?

    Even though I had bad experiences with the Echo Park, this is the coolest feature I've seen in a pedal. I really wish the 3 Echo Parks I tried were hiss free, otherwise I would still own it, and a number of modules. Perhaps I'll pick up a roto.

    I bet something like that is in the works. Seems like the next logical step...

    Yea, a multi-efx pedal for tonecores. 4 module base. That would be sweet.
