Product Description for the TC Electronic Nova System

The TC Electronic Nova System is the complete, floor-based effects solution for the dedicated guitar player who knows quality when he sees it. Its unique inclusion of an all-analog programmable distortion/overdrive section under preset and expression control makes it the perfect choice whether you want to trim down your rack setup, step up from your pedal patchwork or simply just want the ultimate combination of operational simplicity and audio superiority.

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 the TC Electronic Nova System so remarkably different is the NDT(tm) - Nova Drive Technology - a unique, 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. The TC Electronic Nova System's wide gain range covers your every need from light breakup to heavy distortion.

Top-Notch Effects

Equipped with TC branded quality effects from delays and reverbs to compressor, EQ and modulation, the TC Electronic 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. The Nova System's 30 factory presets give you a demonstration of just what this unit provides; great sound quality and an immense versatility of effects combination's - all designed to get you started right out of the box.

Review by Mat
This unit is pristine sounding, warm and huge, miles above modeling pedals. The only negative is, it is not intuitive to use. Not at all. You will not breeze through the menus and figure it out and the Manual is not an easy read. But, if you spend some time with it, you will be rewarded with pro sound and features. The sound is the thing here.
Btw- the drive section may be too warm for some folks, no joke. If you are tired of the SOS modelers this is the clear choice to better tone and higher build quality. The sound is on par with G system. Btw, the pitch section is actually useable!!! Dig that, the processor is fast enough to make pitch effects work great, unlike the competitors units. This bad boy rocks. (Posted on 8/30/14)

Review by Diego Bernard
TC Electronic has made history with their products. They are responsible for the best guitars effects in rock history such as Edge\'s delays from U2 (And that is iconic!!!)

This particular unit is an amazing product. With its NDT (Nova Drive Technology) you get one of the most unique distortions and overdrive effects ever made. It combines the best worlds of analog and digital technology, and to me, that\'s ideal.

I particularly recommend this with tube amps. You get this natural organic sound that cascades... something very unique.

TC Electronic is design for people that truly care for their their sound. The transparency of the effects is superb. So many good things I can say about this unit! Like the compressor (in which can be customized) Or if you hook it up into 2 amps, the stereo sound will blow your mind!

I recommend this product 100%

Again, TC Electronic is meant for people who really care and understand the importance of their sound.

Cheers. (Posted on 4/18/11)
