The best multi effects unit for the price

Tony5219, 10.02.2015
I have been using multi effect units for as long as I can remember, and have used just about all from the major manufacturers, Alesis, Boss, Digitech, Korg, Line 6, Vox, TC Helicon (as opposed to TC Electronic), Zoom, and more. I've had top of the range from most of them including the Pod HD and the Boss GT10, (not the 100). This beats them all in one major area as far as I'm concerned, and that is the overdrive sound. This pedal is a keeper!
I should say I have also kept the Pod HD500 which is useful for certain gigs direct through a PA system. However it is hard work getting a decent sound with the Pod when using a valve amp (amp modelling off of course). With the Nova system it's simple, plug in, a couple of tweaks to suit whatever guitar you're using and you're away.
There are a couple of tips that I would like to pass on, there is no bypass so, if you have, or can get hold of a bypass pedal, (preferably dual bypass). Set the input gain to unity on the Nova, (using setting F9-3 with the boost on) so that your natural guitar sound and the sound through the unit are the same. I would recommend this procedure with any multieffect unit, it's surprising how much some of them colour the guitar sound, and how much tone can be lost, this is one of the main reasons why I've been through so many multi FX units, buying from the internet you only have other peoples reviews to go by. Friends have let me borrow gear, (and set them up for them), which has also been very helpful over the years. Unfortunately, only very rarely do you get an unbiased review or You Tube clip, on the internet, you have to try things out for yourself. The Nova system is, quite simply the best out there (for me).
The distortion and overdrive for Rock and Blues are brilliant quality, If you're into Heavy Metal, Zoom or Line 6 would probably be more your bag. The delays and reverbs are pristine (if you want them to be, or as analogue as you like if that's what you prefer), the modulations are good but they do engender a little volume loss. I'm not a chorus fan, I prefer a subtle pitch shift effect which the Nova does perfectly.
The boost function is very useful (I set this at about 5db). The G switch is also to be recommended as the patch switching on such a small, (comparatively) unit could be considered a bit limiting.
All in all, I thoroughly recommend the Nova system.

tc electronic nova system great job!

11.01.2017
It is a superb pedalboard with an exemplary construction, very easy to use / program with great effects great sound and great versatility for live.
It is quite small which results very well live and has a relief to facilitate the pedalboard, grabs very well due to the film that has the same below and is a great alternative for those looking for a good pedalboard with many quality effects and a Great price.
The delays are very intense and alive, such as the great reverbs it has, the noise gate acts perfectly and the distortions are very vivid!

The compressor acts with great quality such as booster and other effects like flanger, chorus, pitch, octaver, etc .. It is super interesting also the way and the various options to connect the same and play with the effects. Great pedalboard to live.It is good for this quality for the amount of quality effects that the same has more in counterpart can not predefine various effects for the same time by clicking a pedal only and also to boost the effect of distortion of the pedal.
