Combining ultimate control of directivity in the early reflections with a transparent and harmonically magnificent tail, the art of reverberation is brought to a new and higher level. The M3000 enables you to add the softest and cleanest ambience you have never heard to your work of art. Furthermore the processor boasts a wide range of tools and presets to give you the exact vintage or post production reverb you are looking for. Every operation is performed with ease with the Award winning TC Electronic intuitive user-interface.
VSS™3 VIRTUAL SPACE SIMULATOR
VSS™3 technology is built on totally new, ground-up principles, but it is also adjusted and fine-tuned for optimal audio smoothness and clarity to the last details. On top of that a substantial amount of time and effort has been put into fine-tuning and reprogramming those "last digits" on the algorithms so that the sonic result is convincing compared to the real thing, even when the "real thing" is a super-natural sonic environment or a vintage sound.
VSS™3 THE REVERB OF THE FUTURE
Since the mid-eighties a lot of efforts in the high-end effects companies have gone into reverb technology. However, these technologies have all built on variations of the same theme, and thus created only marginal improvements. Some of the main complaints about existing reverbs is that they have unrealistic imaging, sound too metallic and have a tendency to impose unwanted modulation on the signal. With VSS™3 these drawbacks all belong to past.
THE MAIN SONIC ADVANTAGES OF OF VSS™3
Combining a perfectly smooth tail with detailed early reflections, VSS™3 is the ultimate Reverb technology in search for sonic realism.
Accurate Early Reflections
By employing a large number of directional taps - between 40 and 100 - VSS™3 is capable of simulating the sonics of actual rooms with an unprecedented precision.
VSS™3 gives you the highest degree of smoothness and clarity to the reverb tail.
The gentle signal processing of VSS™3 keeps the signal in 100% correct pitch, even when engaging extensive effects processing.
VSS™3 is the first Reverb technology that has the ability to keep the signal 100% free of sound deteriorating modulation, yet still provides modulation as an option.
THE POWER BEHIND VSS™3
The key point in the high quality Reverb of the future is the huge number of small details demanding a vast number of calculations per second. In the M3000 the TC Electronic proprietary DARC™ chip technology has entered into a synergistic interaction with an extremely powerful Motorola 80 Mips DSP chip which has boosted the processing powers to the needed level. Furthermore the M3000 is a Dual Engine true stereo processor featuring 24 bit resolution A/D + D/A converters. In combination with VSS™3 algorithms it makes up a Reverb tool that is simply unbeatable - now and well into the future.
THE CREATIVE TOOL
The M3000 comes loaded with 600 high-grade factory presets, which cover most any application imaginable. The M3000 also boasts a wide range of parameters for editing VSS™3 and VSS™3 Gate Reverb algorithms.
