Multi-Effects • Effects: Multitap rhythm delay with modulation effects like chorus and flanger • Displays: Graphic display and LED chain for input signal. • Inputs and Outputs: ¼" Jack; S/¬PDIF digital in/output; midi in/out/¬thru and connection for a foot pedal • Features: Max. 10 second delay; 6 directly accessible functions; 5 presets to determine the ratio of delay speeds. • Presets: 50 Factory and 100 user presets • Dimensions W/H/D: 19"/1U • Dual-Engine Multi-Tap Rhythm Delay Processor • The TC Electronic D-Two Multi-tap Rhythm Delay is an easy-to-use studio quality digital delay unit designed for live and studio use. The D-Two covers not only all the traditional delay functions, but also a few new ones. With traditional delay units, it’s generally only possible to control feedback and level on a specified fixed delay time. With the D-Two you are now able to tap actual rhythm patterns consisting of up to 10 taps directly into the unit. The D-Two can provide up to 10 seconds of delay, features 24-bit A/D-D/A conversion and 24-bit internal processing, comes with 50 factory presets and 100 user presets, and S/PDIF digital I/O at 44.1kHz and 48kHz. Six unique direct-access features include Spatial for extra-wide delay at a single keystroke, Ping-Pong with five delay patterns and the ability to set the relationship between panning speed and delay tempo, Reverse delay, Dynamic which set the release time and threshold to let the input signal control level of delay, Chorus to add chorus or flange to the delay, and Filter which increases filtering as repeats decay. Renowned as a manufacturer of pristine, high quality solutions for the professional audio industry, the heritage of TC Electronic encompasses more than 20 proud years of know-how in developing cutting-edge digital technology with state-of-the-art sound quality combined with the world’s most sophisticated, yet intuitive, user interface. Their heritage of Classic delays inspired them to introduce the truly musical Rhythm Tap feature: Not only tempo, but actual rhythm patterns can be tapped directly – or quantized according to a specific tempo and subdivision. The delays and rhythm patterns can be up to 10 seconds each. Control the exact number of repeats with Absolute Repeat Control. Cutting Edge Technology With the introduction of the D-Two, TC Electronic have once again succeeded in developing cutting edge technology, expanding the way you work with your effects processor! Your creativity will be the only limit when it comes to exploring the endless number of delay possibilities within the D-Two. True 24 Bit State-of-the-art hardware provides you with true 24 bit resolution A/D and D/A converters and true 24 bit RAM memory. The unique hardware design ensures that the delay effects you get from the D-Two only come in one variety: The best possible audio quality! Affordability The introduction of the D-Two adds a brand new feature to TC´s Ultimate Sound Machines: Affordability! Behind the cool looking exterior of the D-Two Rhythm Tap Delay lies more than 20 years of know-how and experience in supplying Ultimate Sound Machines to the Professional Audio Industry! Delay Re-Invented When TC Electronic introduced the TC 2290, the Professional Audio Industry was given an exceptional tool for creating stunning delay effects. Since the introduction of the TC 2290, digital delay processors have been built on the same basic principle. With the introduction of the D-Two Rhythm Delay TC once again revolutionizes the concept of delay effects processing by adding the possibility of actually creating rhythm delay patterns. The Rhythm Delay feature makes the D-Two the most unique dedicated delay unit – ever! Standard Delay Line The standard delay line of the D-Two is based around a delay line with a feedback loop. The audio is fed back via the loop, which results in repeats. The D•Two Delay Line The D-Two delay/feedback strategy is different from ordinary delay products. In the D-Two the repeats are caused by a number of taps that are not fed back into the delay line. That enables the D-Two to output a specific number of repeats, providing you with ultimate control. Rhythm Delay It is also possible to feed the last tap back into the delay line, generating a complete rhythm sequence, which is repeated when you have the Feedback active. This unique feature allows you to exactly match your effects to your music. Rhythm Tap TC introduces the truly musical Rhythm Tap feature: Not only tempo, but actual rhythm patterns can be tapped directly – or quantized according to a specific tempo and subdivision. The delays and rhythm patterns can be up to 10 seconds each. Control the exact number of repeats with Absolute Repeat Control. Setting Up Setting up your D-Two is extremely easy. Either choose Regular mode for standard delay applications or choose the Unique D-Two Rhythm mode. Simply tap in a specific rhythm and match this to your source material. You automatically enter the Rhythm mode when you tap the FEEDBACK/RHYTHM key. Complete Overview TC Electronic has a long tradition of building high quality intuitive user interfaces. With the introduction of the D-Two this proud tradition is upheld. An ultra detailed Multi Spectral LCD Display provides you with complete overview of what is actually going on in your processor. Every feature has its own section in the display. This makes it easy to take advantage of the many unique possibilities integrated in the D-Two. Add-On-Effects The D-Two Delay processor comes with six unique add-on effects. You can access all parameters of the six effects directly from the front panel. Chorus A great sounding pitch-modulated delay in the shape of TC’s world-acclaimed Chorus is included in the D-Two as well. Double clicking on the CHORUS key provides you with instant access to all chorus parameters. Filter Add Filter to your delay to get a softer, warmer and more natural sounding delay. Reduce the high frequencies of your delay with the D-Two filter effect. This gives you a delay that which in most cases will seem less disturbing on the overall sound. Spatial Use the Spatial Delay effect if you want to add more width to the sound of your material. Extra width is generated either by offsetting left channel up to +/-200ms or by reversing the phase on any channel or both. Reverse Delay The Reverse Delay effect processes the signal, and adds a backward delay. Dynamic Delay Get one of the most useful delay functions with the D-Two: The Dynamic Delay effect. Reduce the delay level as much as you like while the signal is fed to the Input, or enhance the delay level when the signal is at a lower level. When using this function you get a delay effect which seems to be present only where and when it does not disturb or interfere with the source material e.g. in the pauses between phases from a vocalist, a guitar player or similar. Ping-Pong Let your material jump from left to right, left-center-right or let the D-Two dynamically fit the panning to your chosen number of taps. If you combine this panning style of delay with the unique Tap function you get a delay effect that takes your production to dimensions like you have never experienced before.
