Great Minds Rock Alike

John's was one of the first rock stars to join our TonePrint program and his sounds proved so popular we decided to cooperate intensely and capture his interpretations of classic TC effects. We joined forces and the result is what happens when you set John free on the effects that inspire him.

 

  • Six Signature Tones Designed by John Petrucci
  • Chorus, flanger and vibrato in one pedal
  • Custom voicing switch perfectly tuned to John's custom 'dark' chorus sounds

Straight From the Gospel of John

Since they are such an integrated part of his "voice", John knows our products like the back of his hand - so he knew exactly what he wanted, yielding some of the best sounding modulation effects out there.

Modulation Mastery. Multiplied to Infinity

Dreamscape houses Chorus, Flanger and Vibrato effects that will keep you challenged, inspired and coming round for riff-inspiring possibilities.

Access to Greatness

Whether John is your main inspiration or you kinda dig his sounds, we've added a voicing switch that features a 'dark' setting - a mode that perfectly represents John's signature dark voicing that sounds great wether you wanna sound like the man himself or carve your own path.

True to Tone

You love tone, so do we, and our design philosophy testifies to that. So whatever route you wanna go, we got your back. With optimized headroom, True Bypass or Buffered Bypass switch and Kill-Dry on/off, this pedal guarantees optimal tonal integrity and zero loss of tone. And, no matter if the pedal is on or off your precious dry sound is always passed through the pedal unharmed in all it's pure analog glory due to an Analog-Dry-Through.

Backstage Pass - All Access

The controls on Dreamscape are comprised of a set of knobs and a voicing switch that take you from John’s exact settings to your own wildest dreams with precision and ease. Set depth and speed at noon and crank the fx level knob to get johns exact tone.

Voicing Switch

Flavors your tone, including John’s signature ‘dark’ setting.

Depth

Subtle Steve or deep impact, it’s your call.

Speed

This determines the speed of the modulation – from slow and moody to swirling up a storm!

FX Level

Add faint hints of effect or crank for full-on mayhem.

Maximum You

TonePrint pedals offer both true- or buffered bypass. It simply means that no matter what your setup or situation, TC pedals give you optimal signal integrity so the ‘you’ in your playing shines through with unparalleled clarity and definition.

John Petrucci Clean Chorus

The tone you think of when you read those four words is one of the essential cornerstones of rock. Based on TCs classic SCF pedal, this is John’s go-to sound live and in the studio.

John Petrucci Crunch Chorus

Think of the most crushing riff John’s ever done with Dream Theater. Was there chorus on there? Thought so. He loves this setting to fatten up his sound while refraining from sounding too processed - great for ‘bigger-than-life’ crunchiness.

John Petrucci Clean Vibrato

John wanted a very clear sound that hints of a Leslie-swirl, so he went for a wide vibrato with a low speed setting. John actually got so inspired by this sound that he wrote a new riff on the spot.

John Petrucci Crunch Vibrato

John wanted a tone that was not too warbly and ended up with a more subtle, almost doubling-type of effect with a rich tone, without the sound getting dark or the effect getting too pronounced.

John Petrucci Clean Flanger

John opted for a type of phase cancellation that doesn’t completely cancel out, but instead sums up the clean and effected signal into a warmer, swirly sound - the result is a very chorussy tone with a spine-tingling ‘woosh’.

John Petrucci Crunch Flanger

This is John’s twist on a classic aggressive slow flanger. Twist the knobs to create numerous cool sounds, but try setting the knobs to the 12 o’clock position for that classic flange that works especially well on crunchy to heavy riffs. Kick this in on you signature rock riffs – and heads will turn.

Like all great signature gear, TheDreamscape makes Petrucci's tones accessible to all but, crucially, there's still plenty of room to experiment with what is an incredibly versatile and musical pedal.

Okay, it's nominally a John Petrucci signature pedal and guitarists who are fans of this particular brand of modern prog rock are going to love it because of that. However, from a more universal perspective what we have here is a versatile pedal that has a much wider appeal. Chorus, flanging and vibrato are effect that can be of use in many styles of music but are unlikely to be effects that you'd want to use at the same time, so a pedal that can provide quality versions of all three is an asset.

The Dreamscape pedal is certainly for fans of Dream Theater and John Petrucci, but it is also a great multi effects stompbox offering chorusing, flanging and vibrato sounds as well as new customized sounds. Definitely check this out!

Versatile, built like a brick, filled with great sounds and always updatable - it certainly lives up to the excitement it's been generating since it was announced!

No matter how we dialed in the sounds, a listener never would have guessed that this pedal wasn’t analog. We’ve played many digital effect pedals that sounded, well, digital, but as modulation pedals go, The Dreamscape stood up great alongside some of our classic analog pedals — even a few pricey boutique models.

The TonePrint selection is interesting. Connect the pedal via a USB cable, and settings can be downloaded to the unit. There’s also a free app that allows settings to be sent wirelessly to the pedal via a smart phone – a nice, modern feature.

TC Electronic effects are in the State-Of-The-Art category in the guitar world. The Danish company has not gained this reputation by chance, so it is not surprising that the sounds offered in the Dreamscape are within the absolute high-end range as would be expected when you work together with one of the best guitarists currently under the sun.

TC Electronic's collaboration with John Petrucci has succeeded in a very good sounding pedal. To me, this robust and technically advanced pedal lines up right at the front in the league of high-quality effect devices.
