The Boss TE-2 Tera Echo makes uses of the new MDP (Multi Dimension Processing) technology from Boss to give you an echo/delay effect that warps and shapes depending on exactly what you’re playing. This adaptive delay can create awesome ambient sounds but can be more subtle when you signal calls for it.
Roland’s innovative Multi-Dimensional Processing (MDP) analyzes audio signals in many dimensions and applies ideal effects to each. By giving different dynamic changes relative to the input signal in real time, MDP can create bold, all-new sounds with a previously unattainable range of expression.
Thanks to MDP, the TE-2 delivers an amazing new ambience effect that satisfies and inspires. Complex internal processing produces an incredibly deep and spacious sound, dramatically enhancing the straight guitar tone without overwhelming it. Through the TE-2’s simple, familiar stompbox controls and incredible sensitivity to your playing dynamics, an extremely wide range of sounds can be achieved. And with the expressive Freeze function, you can hold the current effect sound to create rich soundscapes for lead playing and sonic exploration.
The TE-2 pedal creates different echo and resonance effects depending on how you are playing the strings. From brilliant chorus to space echo effects, this is not a controllable delay like the DD7. It’s more of a flavored echo smart pedal that self-adapts and changes with your playing style. It’s a pedal that you can have a lot of fun with and that’s why we’ve decided it’s well worth recommending.
