The TC Electronic 2290 is a legendary digital delay unit, renowned for its pristine repeats and beautiful modulation engine. Used by a countless number of studio producers and guitarists since the 80s, including The Edge (U2); TC Electronic has resurrected this iconic unit and placed it within a more streamlined and ergonomic package - the TC2290-DT.
Many modern studio producers and recording engineers are beginning to abandon their old-school rack units, preferring downloadable plug-ins that can convincingly emulate the sound and functionality of classic gear. This not only saves space, but is ultimately a more cost-effective solution that gives you professional studio-quality sounds within just your laptop!
The TC2290-DT has bridged the gap between the two, with the effect generated via a plug-in that can be manipulated with its dedicated desktop controller. This makes it appealing to both today's producers and traditionalists alike, combining the flexibility of modern plug-in technology along with the nostalgic and tactile response offered by a physical control unit.
