Thanks for this thread, I've just bought a Nova Delay and have been scouting for settings for a while now.

My main search is for Gilmour'esque type settings for The Wall album, PULSE stuff and anything else really. If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it!

I have me a Nova Delay and love it. Don't have any settings for REAL songs, except maybe Pachuca Sunrise by Minus the Bear. If anyone wants that its something like 330ms, feedback ~45 and mix ~35. No mod or anything. Just something I came across myself, not official.

Anyway, good thread is good.

Hi,

I recently got a nova delay, not even a week ago, and was wondering about the stereo input/outputs. Can you set each L-input/L-output and R-input/R-output to different delay times?

Or maybe use the boss ls2 to loop it. Using loop 1 with chorus and L-input/ouput on delay and loop 2 with just the R-input/output delay in it.

Is there any relation between TC Electronics and TC Helicon? Some of the products look similar. It seems on company does guitars and one does vocals?

Yeah, I think TC Helicon is like a sub-brand/different department of TC Electronics. If you go on the TC Electronics website, and go to vocals, it turns into TC Helicon.

nope you can't do that. it's just stereo for running a stereo setup and for pingpong delays and stuff like that. not as in two separate delay lines.



what's the dual delay setting that I heard this pedal can do? and how do you use it? not much info found on it.

Dual Delay mode
With dual delay mode it is possible to have different
subdivisions for left and right outputs. Three
combinations are available.
Left output: Quarter notes
Right output: Dotted eights
Left output: Quarter notes
Right output: Eight note triplets
Left output: Sixteen notes
Right output: Dotted eights
If only left output is connected and dual delay mode is
used, then left and right delay outputs are summed.

^this on page 13 of the nova delay manual. If you have stereo outputs you can get different delay subdivision for the left and right outputs. The different types of delay division is limited but it is possible

I have a ehx small clone and was thinking about getting a tremolo pedal. But I saw the nm-1 and was thinking should I sell the small clone and get this instead, how good is this pedal?

I think you need to add the Vintage dual Distortion to the list. It's an excellent and much under-rated pedal. I've owned a blues driver, an od3, an sd1, a tube screamer and a rat yet this came out on top for me!

I went with the nova system because it had more delay settings than the g major. Its also nice when I can't take my whole rig with me to a jam, i can just take the nova system and hook it up to the front of a clean amp.

The G major is nice because it offers channel switching and midi floor board control. It would be pretty cool to go from the clean channel with some chours and a bit of reverb to full on distortion with delay by pressing one button.
#25
Do you know if the sound quality is the same?

Do the Nova System/G Major's effects sound anywhere near as good as the individual Nova pedals? Also, how much can you tweak the settings on either of these units?

Well, compaired to my nova delay i can tweak the same parameters on the nova system. the difference is that the nova delay has a reverse delay setting and the nova does not. The Reverb section is very nice and covers quite a bit. you can even tweak the kind of room the reverb is in.

Now i must say I think the Nova System lacks in Pitch, Drive and Tuning areas.

Pitch: I feel the harmonizers and other detuning effects don't work like they should. For instance if you play in anything other than standard tuning the nova system can't process the notes correctly. I dunno how to explain it but it doesn't sound good. also the Pitch effects cannot process chords, it makes all chords sound garbled. The one thing this section does well is the detune option makes a nice chours effect on certain settings.

Drive: I think the Drive section sounds great but you don't a lot of gain from it. Even on the Distortion setting it doesn't get very modern sounding. I've heard that the Nova Drive pedal has more gain and tweaking options. I use the drive section to boost my amp or to dirty up the clean channel a bit. Nice thing about the Drive section is that its analog.

Tuning: The built in tuner won't register notes below Db. when I downtune or use my baritone guitar i have to use the 12th fret harmonic to tune. its just very annoying.

Nice thing about the Pitch, and Tuning sections is that TC can fix this by making new updates. Its nice to know that bugs can be fix in time by new firmware updates.

Now thats just the stuff i think the Nova lacks in, other wise the Nova System is great. I mean pro quality Modulation, Delay, Reverb, Compression, Drive in one pedal is very nice.

Sorry, I haven't used a G major before but it seem like the same quality.
#30
Yeah, ive heard good things about TC's phasers.

Im still tossing up whether to get a few good quality single effects, or jsut get a G-Major until i know what i want/need, and have a better rig. If i go singles, theres no doubt there will be many TC's on my board.

Sounds pretty good actually i'm quite pleased with it.. I did prefer my old Keeley Flexi over it in standalone fashion but we are also talking about a good chunk of change more. But im not really a standalone guy so it could actually be an amazing pedal if you tweaked it a bit... Where I thought it really shines is using it as a clean boost. The thing tears it up.. Its actually the first pedal to actually edge out my modded bad monkey. So i've been using the hell out of it.
#33
Cool, i'm thinking of a new overdrive as my next pedal, now that I'm pretty sure I'll go for single effects.
Does anyone have any opinions on the Nova Drive?
Any more thoughts on the Vintage Overdrive?

Added a clip on my profile of the Nova Repeater's chorus. Their are instructions on how to use it as a chorus pedal in the description. Works pretty well i might add, take a listen.

Feedback on any of my clips is greatly appreciated.

Are you going to be cascading delay with the Nova delay and the Repeater? that seems pretty cool and you should put up some clips. i'm really interested in hearing that.
#39
^ Yeah, that would be cool to hear.

Does anyone here own a Nova Modulator? Looks like one sweet pedal.

I'll definitely try it out, but primarily, because I cannot find a better alternative, I'll be using the Nova R in my Mesa's loop and the Nova D in my Twin Amp's Loop. But yeah, when I get it, I'll definitely try the cascade and will post clips/video's of my endeavours.

I'm also interested in one, it's just the way they all handle preset cycling bothers me, with the Nova Mod, it'll be particularly annoying. However, There's a kind gentleman who does mods for these pedals, in terms of an external switch for changing presets which will save some tap dancing, but still it's not perfect, the ideal solution would be to have say an external four button footswitch for the Nova Mod that will recall presets, e.g. one switch for Chorus, one for Flanger etc...

Otherwise, it's a perfect pedal. the fact that two mod effects can be combined is second to none, I love that feature. The effects themselves sound outstanding too.
