All-in-one guitar effects extravaganza.

The 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 multi-effect 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 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.

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 effect processor 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 the Nova System provides; great sound quality and an immense versatility of effects combinations - all designed to get you started right out of the box.

NDT - Nova Drive Technology: All-analog programmable overdrive and distortion circuit under preset and expression control.
6 effect blocks taken straight from G-System: Compression, EQ + Noise Gate, Modulation, Pitch, Delay, Reverb
30 factory and 60 user presets
Two footswitch layouts: preset and pedal
Hi-Z and balanced input + balanced stereo outputs
Optional G-Switch for added control

TC nova system


from London Uk

Comments about TC Electronic Nova System Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

When you get past the initial learning curve on this unit, it rewards you with really, excellent sound quality ,and some great performance orientated functions, but don't expect to use it on stage the first day you buy it; the manual could be a lot better, but there are some useful tutorials on youtube. This is not a do all modeling unit, it works best in front of a good amp; it can however make a JC 120( my least favourite stage amp) sound pretty good.

Stylish, yet affordable!

Comments about TC Electronic Nova System Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

I've owned the Nova System for about a year now and now that the bugs have been worked out from the early models I can say that I'm happy with the system. I bought it after having used the Nova Delay for about six months. I was so impressed with the delay that I decided to sell my ever growing pedal board and make a smaller footprint and a bigger sound. I use it for both acoustic and electric and it works very well. The unit is upgradeable through web downloads and TC seems to be on top of customer complaints about various glitches as they are now on the 3rd or 4th upgrade. The only downside is the poorly written manual that leaves more questions unanswered than answered but on the plus side the TC website has a good knowledge base and the ability to pose questions. Bottom's a great tool and worthy of consideration.
