Mastering tools from System 6000 for PowerCore

TC Electronic announces the MD3 Stereo Mastering package for PowerCore, providing professional production and mastering tools previously only available in System 6000 for DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations). Integrating smoothly with important VST- or AU compatible applications for music and post production, the MD3 Stereo Mastering package includes MD3 Multiband Dynamics and BrickWall Limiter. Shipping starts September 2004.
"System 6000 is already recognized as an industry milestone, and it is the most research intensive audio processor ever created. It has been a long time wish for us to make some of the unique mastering tools of the System 6000 available to users of VST- and AU compatible applications", says Thomas Lund, Program Manager at TC Electronic.
MD3 features a multiband 48 bit internal resolution structure, and offers a 3-band compressor and expander, a 4-band parametric equalizer, and a limiter in one powerful algorithm. MD3 can be configured for stereo or dual mono processing. It can be used on single sources as well as composite stereo mixes. Alternatively, stereo material may be processed in the MS domain, or MD3 may take in MS signals and convert them to stereo with processing taking place in either the LR or MS domain. The multiband section has the advantage of adjustable look-ahead delay for gentle processing of transients, while the limiter uses its own overshoot proof micro-delay to prevent output samples above the threshold set.
BrickWall Limiter is a stereo/dual monolimiter avoiding early listening fatigue by adapting to the signal, investigating if your signal is contaminated with 'so called' 0dBFS+ peaks - and to remove them if so decided.
PowerCore is an open platform DSP engine for professional signal processing for Mac and PC. It integrates with any Audio Units- or VST compatible host application. PowerCore includes ten TC plug-ins right out of the box. Optional plug-ins are available from TC.
TC electronic is exhibiting at PLASA 2004, booth L72, and at IBC Amsterdam, stand 8.574.
