From the Manufacturer
Add to this an array of effects taken straight from the king of floor-based processors; G-System and you have top-notch compression, EQ, noise gate, modulation, pitch, delay and reverb right at your feet. All you need is a guitar and an amp and you’re good to go – first class.
Genuine, Analog Drive Circuit
What makes Nova System so remarkably different is the NDT™ - Nova Drive Technology - a unique, new drive and distortion circuit that gets you the best of both worlds: World-class analog distortion and overdrive with digital control. This is the real deal – no modeling. While the NDT™ is 100 percent analog and physically separated from the digital effects, its control potmeters are digital. This way you can tweak, store and recall as many drive settings as you want - you can even hook up an expression pedal and control the amount of distortion in real-time. Its wide gain range covers your every need from light breakup to heavy distortion.
Equipped with TC branded quality effects from delays and reverbs to compressor, EQ and modulation, Nova System is the obvious all-in-one solution for any guitarist who wants setup simplicity without sacrificing tonal fidelity. All neatly programmable and storable in 60 user presets. Its 30 factory presets give you a demonstration of just what this unit provides; great sound quality and an immense versatility of effects combinations – all designed to get you started right out of the box.
Top Customer Reviews
Pros: nice sounds, sounds are real, reverb, delay, flange, chorus, compressor, and drives are good. Wasn't sure I liked the way the presets were changed but after understanding how they worked, I actually like it now. Drive sounds are very decent, not a huge range of styles like in a modeler, but just a solid warm crunchy OD and distortion.
Cons: Not huge fan of the phaser sounds - I actually had a G-Major a while back and thought the same thing, and this sounds the same as the G-Major to me. It is serviceable but not great. Also, there is a definite issue with the drive bleeding through when the drive is "off". If you have a patch programmed with drive on, and tap the drive off, you can faintly hear the drive still bleeding through the patch. Not the end of the world, but can be enough to mess up the pristine clean sound. So if you program truly clean patches, make sure you completely set the drive gain/levels to zero to eliminate the bleed issue.Read more ›
It is a great foot controlled effects processor and focuses on TC level quality effects rather than middle of the line effects and a lot of other bells and whistles like the other processors. TC claims that the blocks are taken straight from the G-System, which costs over a 1000 dollars. This a real value for money deal TC quality effects at a great price.
My new Nova system does everything the advertisement said it would.
So NO negative opinions from me.
I know I'm late getting one, it's is December, 2015, but I couldn't be happier.
I felt like alot of the haters on this the first week i had it, but I watched every video,
and read every review I could find on the internet, like Bumblefoot, or Pete Thorne,
and each one had some little trick, or procedure to follow to get Nova system to
sound AMAZING in front of an amp.
I have a really, REALLY loud 2x 12 stereo chorus amp, with and extra 2x12 extension speaker.
I have that set to absolutley NO overdrive, preamp, or crunch, just as clean as it can get.
And the Nova is exactly as sick (bad ass) as all the hype said it would be.
I downloaded all of the new artist series patches from TC Elextronics, and joined ALL the
groups/forums dedicated to this unit. The Nova sounds so good through a loud amp onstage,
that if you are a pro musician that wants to use it to perform live, you will love it.
I don't use anything like this in the studio, So I can't speak to those that hate it for going
direct into the board. TC made it for live obviously, and it is perfect for me.
I can't believe it even pulls of "harmonic feedback" as if you had a stack of marshalls or fenders.
Like Hendrix, or Stevie Ray Vaughn, Trower, etc.
It can nail the mesa boogie tone too, and even the old Fender/Vox sound which has mad a comeback.
One of the main things I had to learn was NOT to use it to make your amp louder, or as a volume booster,
it competely defeats the purpose of the design of this unit.Read more ›
