TC Electronic Quintessence: Harmonious and Groundbreaking
The Hall Of Fame 2 reverb and Flashback 2 delay were simply the tip of the iceberg as far as TC Electronic's innovative MASH-technology is concerned. The Quintessence Harmonizer is an intelligent effects pedal designed for guitarists who want a versatile pitch shifter in a compact stompbox format.
The first thing you need to do is set the key using the dedicated knob and # switch. Then you can choose from seven diatonic scale modes or load in a custom scale. The next step is choosing the type of harmonies themselves and, in addition to the eight default harmonies, there are three TonePrint slots for customisable harmonies too. The mix control lets you adjust the ratio between the wet and dry signals but it's the pressure-sensitive MASH footswitch that really takes things to the next level. It allows expression pedal-phrasing without the need for an expression pedal and it works in both latch and momentary mode too! In TonePrint mode you can even assign the MASH footswitch to control different aspects of the pedal, making it extremely versatile.
