TC Electronic Infinite Sample Sustainer

Since it was acquired by Behringer’s Music Tribe, Danish company TC Electronic has lost a lot of its original appeal – the one of a forward-thinking company run by bright and likable people.  A series of redesigns of cheap, old Behringer pedals and unnecessary clones of existing circuits have diluted a brand once known for original, cutting-edge circuitry, while the predatory inclinations of their PR and marketing tactics are fueling a backlash from most folks passionate enough about pedals to spend their time writing about them (or shooting them), including truly yours. In this optic, the new Infinite pedal is a little step forward: it’s at least an evolution (rather than a mere copy) of an idea pioneered by Gamechanger Audio.

The Infinite samples the end of your guitar and figures out a perfect moment to loop it in a way that will sound natural, generating infinite sustain. This is what the Gamechanger Audio Plus pedal does already very well.

However, the infinite adds to the concept a few new tricks, including

• Infinite mode can add and sustain an indefinite number of layers which gradually morph together
• Integrated reverb and modulation can be paired with the sustain
• Footswitch control can be set to latching or momentary
• FX loop to add external effects to the sustained signal
• 3 TonePrint slots for beaming and storing artist TonePrints

Here’s the launch, in-house video of the New Pedal: TC Electronic Infinite Sample Sustainer..

The name says it all. With INFINITE on your board, you’ll be able to capture and sustain a moment in audio. If DITTO LOOPER is like the camera on your phone where you can loop a video sequence, INFINTE is like the Polaroid for sound, allowing you to build amazing soundscapes and captivating moods whenever and wherever between now and forever. Instant sound snapshots so to speak!

If you’re into stacking layers of notes and chords, INFINITE is right down your alley. Stack single notes to build epic chords and harmonies, or stack chords to create ambient mayhems from monumentally mesmerizing or wonderfully weird to screeching and squealing!

Infinity… Imagine the sounds you could create if you had that kind of time on your hands. We can’t give you infinite time, unfortunately, but we’re very happy to offer you endless amounts of sustained layers right at the tips of your toes! So, with Infinity mode enabled, you can virtually add and sustain an endless number of layers – from here to infinity!
