Tonecore pedals coding versions... 26-09-05

tonecore logo6TC?

There's something about them that isn't known to many users. The Tonecore-pedals have a digital coding. You can check the coding version you have if you follow these 4 easy steps...

  1. Plug a cable into pedal input to power it up
  2. Unplug cable
  3. Press foot switch through the second switch and hold it.
  4. Plug cable back into the input and count the number of red and amber flashes.

RED = 1.0 * * * AMBER = 0.1+

Meaning, a Version 1.2 would flash Red (once) then two Amber flashes. A version 1.0 pedal only flashes once Red. Most pedals will be on a Version 1.0 status. However you may have a different version yourself. Well you know how to check it now...


Modular and Interchangeable... 13-10-05

tonecore logo 6TC?

You all have read the coding versions of the Tonecore pedals if not just click here to go there. That was the beginning of the revealing of Hidden Features. Now can tell you there's even more to it then that.

There are 2 more features to all the Tonecore pedals.

  1. Tonecores are modular
  2. Tonecores are interchangeable

So that's a big deal you'd say right? Actually it has some advantages right now. Some things come to mind as.

  • You can easily interchange, a module without having to disconnect the cabling. You can do this within seconds, provided that the locking screws are already out of the tonecore pedal(s). For your information exchanging it doesn't void the warranty. If the pedals are plugged in when changing modules you can sometimes get a pop that will come through your amp, depending on how loud your amp is. This could be dangerous for your amp at loud volumes.
  • You can re-arrange the Tonecores line-up without disconnecting your wiring set-up. In this way you can place your Tonecores differently in your signal chain. Gaining more versatility
  • You never know what else Line 6 could come up with, that builds on the features just mentioned.

Scroll down to see the provided pictures for a more visual approach on how you can unlock and interchange the Tonecore modules.

Power to the Core - AC versus DC... 13-09-05

Tone core pedals work on DC (Direct Current). What's the difference between AC en DC? well...

AC stands for Alternating Current. Meaning that the flow of electricity alternates, first in one direction, then back the other way. So it alternates in both directions, there's no polarity and the plugs can be wired as you see fit.

DC stands for Direct Current. Meaning that the flow of electricity always runs in one direction. DC power connections, like on the Tonecore pedals, always have a polarity. In the case of the Tonecore pedals this means that the center is negative and the tip is positive. See the picture below.

When connecting different power supplies (other then DC1 from Line 6), be sure that each output is completely isolated. This means that you won't have any ground loops or interaction between pedals that can cause hum and noise.
