TC Electronic Alter Ego V2 Vintage Echo Digital Delay Pedal (Discontinued)
The TC Electronic Alter Ego V2 Vintage Echo Digital Delay Pedal is a hard pedal to describe because it’s essentially a delay modeler. Through the use of TC Electronic’s TonePrint software you can either create or download patches that modify a variety of parameters.
- Controls: Time, Level, Feedback, Mode
- Delay Time- Up to 7000ms
- Stereo Input/Output
- TonePrint Enabled
- True Bypass and Buffered Bypass (You can select either)
- AC Adapter (not included) or 9-Volt Adapter (not included)
Even better, the unit includes 9 presets based on famous delay effects. The models were tweaked by the TC Electronic team as well as the folks over at ProGuitarShop. The presets include: the Binson Echorec 2, the Electro-Harmonic Deluxe Memory-Man Chorus, the Tel Ray Organ Tone, the TC Electronic 2290 Modulated, the Reverse Modulated, the Boss DM-2, the Watkins Copykat, the Maestro Echoplex 1, and the Roland Space Echo. The unit includes both a looper, a stereo and mono output, as well as tap tempo functionality.
In summation, like other TC Electronic Effects the Alter Ego Vintage Echo V2 Delay is a good pedal with the potential to be a great one. You can get just about any sound you want, but you’re going to get more out of it if you’re willing to play around with the TonePrint software.
