TC Electronic TC Thirty
TC Thirty is a virtual model of a classic British Vox amplifier from 1961, providing the sound and behavior of the "normal channel" found on that amp. A lot of users of the classic AC 30 amplifier have added a modification called a "treble booster" that was used to overdrive the tubes of the amp and create a singing, crunchy guitar sound. On the TC Thirty there is also a treble booster option, which was conceived with the classic sound of Queen's Brian May in mind. The resonance can be switched to different frequencies so that people who are using different guitars can still get close to "that sound" - and they can create their own unique sound as well. The plug-in features the TC PowerCore "No Latency" mode that allows for playing TC Thirty in a live recording or performance situation. TC Thirty also offers an oversampling option for even better processing quality than in standard mode. Up to four standard mode instances of TC Thirty can run on one PowerCore FireWire DSP.
TC Electronic Filtroid
With its dual filters and extensive modulation capabilities, Filtroid brings the sound of analog filter banks to PowerCore. Filtroid consists of two filters with low-, hi- and band-pass shapes with 12, 18 or 24 db slope characteristics. The filters can be used in series or parallel for the utmost creative control, and the external side-chain input provision allows for modulation of the filter from another track. Extensive modulation capabilities include independent LFOs per filter and an envelope follower. Tempo sync ensures that filter movements are always synchronized to the speed of the sequencer, and a distortion unit adds an additional edge to the sound, if desired. With serial or parallel filter routing, massive modulation options, side chain input, resonance with self-oscillation, envelope follower, distortion and out of phase modulation, PowerCore users have all the tools they need to make the most extreme filter effects.
TC Electronic DVR2 PowerCore
The DVR2 Digital Vintage Reverb is another great professional reverb ported from the revered System 6000. It is available as a plug-in for PowerCore. TC Electronic has put much effort into preserving the qualities of the original processor, including sweet modulation, spectral balance, spaciousness and saturation. But not only is DVR2 the most precise EMT250 emulation up to now, it also emulates its predecessor in the way parameters interact for different settings. DVR2 comes with customizable presets, focus fields for tweaking and navigation, and a built-in preset converter allowing seamless import of DVR2 presets from System 6000. With the DVR2 for PowerCore, it is now possible to save processing power on the System 6000 for other tasks - the choice is yours. The vintage reset function produces a sound very close to a well preserved EMT250, which is still a favorite on lead vocal in studios fortunate enough to own one. The high resolution parameters allow for lower noise, extension of bandwidth, and control of the amount of chorusing.
TC Electronic VSS 3 PowerCore
The VSS3 Stereo Source Reverb for PowerCore is a genuine and original reverb directly ported from the System 6000. The VSS3 algorithm was researched and fine-tuned by TC engineers for over a year, resulting in an exceptionally precise tool. Similar to the chaotic response of a natural room, the VSS3 reacts differently to identical signals. Used for effects purposes, extensive modulation possibilities are offered for the creation of detuned or chorused sustain effects for e.g. vocal, guitar, piano or horns. Inherent in the VSS3 algorithm there are almost 800 parameters, equaling an astronomical amount of combinations, and this impressive set of parameters has been condensed to a very substantial and pertinent user interface. With the VSS3 you get a package of presets that have in many cases become industry standards. The sound of VSS3 can be heard on thousands of albums and films.
TC Electronic Fabrik R
Fabrik R combines four new TC algorithms in one single plug-in. Thanks to the the Meta Intuitive Navigation Technology (MINT™) it is a breeze to find the sound you're hearing inside your head. If you want to apply a "live" vibe to your vocals and instruments, use the Live Reverb. For vocals that need an even "larger" quality, choose the Hall Reverb. For that sound of the past as well as for drums and percussion, apply the Plate Reverb. If you're working with guitars try the Club Reverb, which also works great with vocals. Within each reverb you'll find it very easy to adjust any setting to your own taste. You won't waste time with nitty-gritty preset adjustments - all you really have to worry about, is using your ears.
