TC Electronic Nova System with analog programmable distortion and overdrive ships 28/03/08
TC Electronic has announced that their Nova System, as seen in our Messe video coverage, is now shipping. The new floor-based all-in-one guitar solution uniquely combines world-class analog distortion and overdrive with the advantages of digital control. TC say that, loaded with top quality effects from their renowned G-System, Nova System is the ideal all-in-one solution for any guitarist who wants setup simplicity without sacrificing tonal fidelity.
Hereâ€™s the rest of what TC have to say in their own wordsâ€¦
What makes Nova System so remarkable is NDTTM â€“ Nova Drive Technology â€“ an innovative drive and distortion circuit that offers true analog sound under preset and expression control. While the drive circuit is 100% analog and physically separated from the digital effects, its controls are digital. This way the drive effects can be tweaked, stored and recalled in exactly the same way as any of the digital effects, and the amount of distortion can be controlled in real time by hooking up an expression pedal.
Nova System houses eight high quality effects blocks taken straight from G-System. It features drive, compression, EQ, Noise Gate, Modulation, Pitch, Delay and Reverb, all programmable and storable in 60 user presets. The overdrive emulates the classic overdrive originally only found in tube amps. The distortion is fat and aggressive and allows for full and massive chords and fluent compressed leads. The tonal character is raw, crunchy and very tube-like. Using just the guitar volume will allow for anything from semi-clean chords to intense leads.
Adding Hi-Z and balanced inputs plus balanced stereo outputs, and two footswitch layouts - preset and pedal - with an option for adding a G-Switch for further control, make Nova System the obvious floor-based solution for the serious guitar player. Pricing and Availability:
