Make Your Music Come Alive
With traditional delay plug-ins, loud echoes often overpower and interfere with the subtle, organic nature of the music. TC2290-DT’s dynamic delay responds instantly, and musically to the volume of the input signal – so the actual repeats change in response
to your music.
While you’re playing, the delay repeats blend seamlessly into the signal content, and when you stop the effect becomes more obvious. This is very similar to what is often referred to as ducking, which makes the desired signal much more prominent in the mix.
Metering & More
TC2290-DT provides high-resolution input and output meters for accurate signal monitoring directly on the hardware interface,
plus all tone-defining parameters including delay time, feedback level, modulation, mix settings and much more.

Capturing All the Details
TC2290-DT perfectly recreates the unmistakable sound of the original 2290. Over the course of more than a year, our engineers have taken apart four original units, each with their own distinct character, and measured them from top to bottom.
In order to create the ultimate emulation, we then cross-compared the data step by step until we achieved the clarity and warmth that has always been the hallmark of the classic 2290 sound.
