TC Electronic PowerCore FireWire
PowerCore FireWire - Serious Power for Native Audio Workstations!
PowerCore is the open DSP-platform for rackmount-quality processing inside any VST or AudioUnit compatible audio application such as Logic, Cubase, Nuendo or Performer. The new PowerCore FireWire enables laptop users and professionals constantly on the move to take advantage of the wide selection of professional tools.
Even complex mixes are possible with just a laptop and one PowerCore FireWire, as it is offering almost twice the power of the PCI-card version! The unique combination of a floating-point PowerPC with 4 Motorola DSPs ensures tight integration into the native world - at the same time maintaining all of the advantages that DSPs offer for pristine signal processing.
PowerCore's software and hardware provide the utmost quality and a future-proof design. Extremely power demanding tools like Mastering Dynamics, Reverbs and other professional virtual processors run on PowerCore without draining the host computer's resources.
PowerCore FireWire delivers an array of powerful tools right out of the box. The nine virtual processors included feature the most complete collection of dynamics processing available, including a virtual Finalizer (Master X), Vintage Compression and a Voice Channel Strip. Not to mention the two TC-quality Reverbs, Modulation Effects, EQ, Synthesis...
Aside from the included software, PowerCore users may choose from the growing number of optional TC and 3rd party tools, featuring renowned brands such as Waldorf, Sony, TC-Helicon, DSound - and many more to come. Naturally, the PCI-card and the FireWire version of PowerCore may be used in the same system!
The PowerCore Plug-Ins
Virtual Limiting Amplifier
Convincing vintage compression and limiting using one of the most desired vintage models for POWERCORE! 24/7C was inspired by one of the vintage processors synonymous with classic dynamics processing for mixing and mastering. This Plug-In recreates the details of the sound and user interface of this hardware processor as closely as possible, delivering virtual vintage at its best. The user interface is simple and straight-forward: increasing the input will drive the limiter depending on the selected ratio. Even the famous 4-Button-mode was implemented. A special new feature is an Auto-Gain sensing for the Output parameter, that adjusts the output depending on the program material. Four stereo or up to six mono instances of 24/7C run on just one of POWERCORE's DSPs, without taxing the CPU.
24/7C is exclusively available for POWERCORE.
