TC Electronic 996130001 overview

  • 1Description

The Mimiq Doubler pedal from TC Electronic is designed to reproduce the sound of double-tracked electric guitars—an effect popular on many a rock 'n' roll studio recording. It utilizes an algorithm specifically coded by TC Electronic to capture the seemingly random and always subtle divergences in time, attack, and pitch that define the feel of studio-recorded double-tracked guitars. However, with a pedal as compact as this, you can now reproduce the effect on the stage. Utilizing stereo inputs and outputs, you can also route your resulting signal to multiple amplifiers, further expanding the emulated sound of multiple guitarists playing the same part in unison. In addition, the stereo input section allows you to use the pedal with instruments that are equipped with a stereo output, such as an electronic keyboard.

To adjust the intensity of the effect, the Mimiq Doubler includes independent mix knobs for the effected and dry signals. A switch on the top of the pedal allows you to choose between one, two, or three additional simulated double tracks. A true bypass switch ensures your tone remains unaffected when the pedal is not in use. You can power this stompbox either with 9V batteries or a 9 VDC power adapter, and a USB cable has been included for use with firmware updates.

Controls Explained
TIGHTNESS: This knob controls how close, in time, the doubling will be. Setting it low will be more precise, while cranking the dial will add more space and a looser feel.

EFFECT: This knob controls the level of the doubling at the output stage.

DRY: This knob controls the level of your original signal at the output stage. DUBS: This toggle switch controls the number of doubles you're adding to the signal. You can choose between one and three.

BYPASS footswitch: By default, the pedal uses a true bypass design, allowing your signal to pass through un-effected when it is disengaged. However, a buffered bypass—useful for long cable runs and complicated pedalboards—can be turned on by unscrewing the back plate and flipping the upper DIP switch.
