TC Electronic Unleashes PowerCore CompactLightweight and portable hardware platform with FireWire ports (September 21, 2004)
With the included and optional plug-ins, PowerCore Compact can be optimized for a variety of applications such as mastering, vocal processing and sound design. On top of the nine standard included plug-ins for the PowerCore platform - two types of reverb, two types of compressors/limiters, a chorus/delay, a parametric EQ, a synthesizer, a complete voice channel and a guitar amp simulator - PowerCore Compact comes with the brand new Character plug-in from Noveltech, the dual "analog" filter bank Filtroid, and Master X3, the virtual incarnation of the TC Electronic Finalizer.
Like all PowerCore devices, PowerCore Compact supports any VST or Audio Unit based digital audio workstation. It moves professional signal processing beyond the walls of the studio, and has the capability to run multiple reverbs, virtual Finalizers and other high-end effects simultaneously. The PowerCore Compact comes with a 266 MHz PowerPC and two 150 MHz Motorola DSPs each with 512 Kb Ram, and it connects instantly to computers via FireWire connectors. Multiple PowerCore Compacts can be combined with each other or with several PowerCore FireWires and/or PowerCore Elements for even more power.
Thomas Valter, Product Manager at TC Electronic explains: "There is no doubt that portability and access to high-quality processing are key issues for users of professional music and film editing applications. With the PowerCore Compact, you get both."
