Flexible effects loop makes integration with your rig a breeze
The TC Electronic PLETHORA X5 doesn’t include any amp simulations, and there’s a reason for that. This powerful multi-effects unit is geared toward tone chasers who have already found their signature sound via amp distortion and drive pedals. Because really, why would you want to emulate something that’s already been perfected? Rather, the PLETHORA X5 takes your hard-earned, painstakingly crafted tone to the next level with studio-quality effects. Its high-quality effects loop boasts an adjustable efects insert point that allows you to integrate your favorite dirt boxes anywhere in your signal chain. Plus, you can use the insert to connect your amp using the 4-cable method, allowing you to choose which effects go in front of your amp’s input and which effects live in your amp’s effects loop. Here, we’ve used the PLETHORA X5 with a bevy of high-dollar amplifiers, bolstering their tone with tasty compression, killer ambience, and liquid modulation, with zero tone suck. We dig the built-in Sentry Noise Gate, too. It keeps your entire rig whisper-quiet.
MASH footswitches maximize expression
The PLETHORA X5 is an expressive piece of gear, thanks to its five MASH footswitches. Real-time modulation ramping, volume swells, fluid mix control — you can do all that and more by applying pressure with your foot. Plus, each MASH switch can control up to three effect parameters simultaneously using customizable action curves, imbuing your effects with new dimensions of expression. Need more control? Not a problem for the PLETHORA X5. Its expression input accommodates an expression pedal, enabling you to take command of any effect or add a volume pedal anywhere in your signal chain.
Includes a myriad of essential player-friendly features
With the TC Electronic PLETHORA X5 in your rig, attaining inspiring sounds will be more effortless than ever. This TonePrint multi-effects pedal’s Quick Swap feature enables you to devise interesting sounds by switching pedal order on the fly. Want to flip your delay and reverb around for otherworldly ambience? Toss modulation in front of your amp for some EVH-esque textures? With the PLETHORA X5, it’s easy — simply hold down the footswitches of the effects you’d like to swap and voila! Gone are the days of ripping apart your pedalboard for an impromptu sonic experiment! You also get a built-in optional global cabinet simulation for convenient DI-ing. This British-style cab sim was crafted in-house by TC’s design team, and it sounds amazing. And MIDI In/Thru jacks make selecting configurations from an external device a piece of cake. To top it off, the PLETHORA X5 includes a true stereo signal path for rich, ultra-wide effects and easy rig integration. The PLETHORA X5 was clearly made with pro-level rigs in mind.
