To the analogue drive circuit from the TC Electronic Nova System, the TC Electronic Nova Drive pedal adds digital programmability and control. Individual overdrive and distortion circuits that can be used separately or stacked together for virtually unlimited tonal flexibility mean that the TC Electronic Nova Drive effects pedal provides all the distorted and overdriven sounds guitarists could ever need. The analogue overdrive tone of the TC Electronics Nova Drive provide a range of tones, from clean boost throught blues and valve-like breakup to full-on crunch. A Mix knob blends in the original sound to the processed signal plus Level, Tone and Overdrive controls. The analogue distortion section of the TC Nova Drive pedal provides a range of distortion form subtle punch to screaming fuzz. 2-band EQ with Bass and Treble knobs allow distorted tone shaping.

With 18-presets, the TC Electronic Nova Drive allows access to all the different tones you have created. Ture Bypass means no tone loss when the effects pedal is off. The TC Electronic Nova Drive pedal is fully MIDI controlled. Change presets, toggle overdrive and distortion on/off change routing and access all parameters in real time with continuous controllers. Or access all TC Electronics Nova Drive pedals parameters via the bundled Mac / PC editing softword. Though Nova Drive can be used as a stand-alone stompbox, you can use Nova Drive with the G-Switch foot switch or in a MIDI controlled rackmounted rig, or with TC Electronic G-System floor processor. TC Electronic Nova Drive is guaranteed to integrate into any rig. TC Electronic Nova Drive provides 24 programmable presets and options of how to control the pedal. In Normal mode the overdrive and distortion switches work like regular stomp boxes. Toggle mode switches either of the effects engines On / Off for fast switching between Overdrive and Distortion sounds. Bank mode enables set up of 9 banks of two presets, ideal for guitarists who prefer the sound of for either the overdrive or the distortion and makes it possible to switch between two different overdrive settings using the two switches. TC Electronic Nova Drive offers flexibility with three routing options when combining Overdrive and Distortion. Guitarists have spent countless hours finding the perfect order for their drive pedals, as overdrive before distortion, or distortion before overdrive results in dramatically different effects. TC Electronic Nova Drive offers guitarists both options as well as a third Parallel Mode that is similar to running two tonally different, great sounding amps at the same time. Changing the routing sequence can be done with press of a button and TC Electronic Nova Drive allows for different routings to be saved as a preset. For guitarists there is a distinction between overdrive and distortion. Distortion generally means extreme distortion and is associated with a buzzing or "fuzz" type of sound. Overdrive means a light semi-distortion with increased harmonics and presence, but not the same as all out distortion. Technically overdrive is still distortion, but its mild enough that more of the character of the guitar comes through.
