TonePrint App from TC Electronic
TonePrint is a range of effects pedals that let you edit and share effects presets.
The new iPhone app comes loaded with all available TonePrints and lets you beam them quickly to your TonePrint Pedals with no internet connection required.
The idea behind the technology is quite simple: Each TonePrint has been converted to a unique-sounding magnetic impulse that can be beamed via an iPhone’s internal speaker, through the pickup of a guitar and directly to a TonePrint pedal.
“When we launched the TonePrint concept, we knew that we eventually had to come up with a solution that made swapping TonePrints easier,” says Guitar Product Manager at TC Electronic, Tore Lynggaard Mogensen. “Most guitarists have their pedal board in a rehearsal space and their computer at home. Some may have brought a laptop, but the process still needed to be made faster and more intuitive to really take advantage of the great potential that this artist-driven concept has to offer. We are extremely proud to present a super-flexible solution that allows all guitarists with TonePrint pedals and an iPhone to truly explore the ever-expanding list of great and unique TonePrints created by some of the best guitar players in the world. Now great tones and tons of musical inspiration can be beamed and enjoyed on-the-spot as well as on-the-fly.”
Although this app does make the process of transferring TonePrints to the pedals much more convenient, I think they should have included a TonePrint editing feature. When artists like Paul Gilbert create custom prints, they have access to more parameters than are available on the pedal - hopefully TC Electronic will add this functionality in a future release.
The app is currently only available for iPhone, but an Android version is slated for release in December.
You can get it for free from the App Store.
