By combining TC Electronic's System 6000 algorithms with its PowerCore platform, the new PowerCore 6000 gives users an optimal studio tool for their DAWs.
PowerCore 6000 features eight FreeScale DSP engines, the same DSPs used in System 6000, and it has an SRAM memory design that supports high performance reverbs and delays. This enables users to run reverbs and delay-algorithms from System 6000 with popular DAWs like Logic Pro, as well as with any other VST- and audio units-compatible host.
PowerCore 6000 includes seven plug-in algorithms, which are ported 1:1 from System 6000: VSS3 stereo source reverb, Nonlin2, DVR 2 digital vintage reverb MD3 stereo mastering, Brickwall Limiter, UnWrap stereo to 5.1 conversion and TapFactory.
PowerCore 6000 is also an optimal tool for mastering. PowerCore 6000 offers MD3 stereo mastering, System 6000's high-end mastering tool. M and S components of a stereo signal can be processed separately and provide even more control, making full use of the spectral stereo enhancer. The mastering options given with the inclusion of the MD3 mastering tool are supported through two more plug-ins: Brickwall Limiter, the plug-in used to get rid of the signals known to generate distortion in consumer CD players, radio processors and data reduction codecs; and Unwrap 5.1, the tool that facilitates smooth and fast stereo to 5.1 up-conversion.
Users also get TapFactory, a delay/reverb hybrid based on the Reflector algorithm from System 6000. TapFactory features effects that range from reverbs like ambience and early reflections to delay, and allows individual parameter settings for each of its 24 taps within seconds.
PowerCore 6000 ships with PowerCore software 3.2 and is compatible with the latest Mac OS and Windows XPNista 32.
