8-core hardware DSP and TC's studio-quality plug-ins for DAW mixing.

PowerCore X8 software bundle from TC Electronic provides a massive amount of power, with 8 x 150MHz DSPs, oodles of RAM, and is made for high-end music production environments where quality and processing capabilities are required. It includes two highly acclaimed Sonnox plug-ins - the Oxford EQ and Oxford Dynamics, both ported directly from the million-dollar Sony Oxford console - in addition to 14 included TC Electronic plug-ins, like the Dynamic EQ as well as the DeNoise plug-in from the Restoration Suite package. This bundle also gives you a $500 voucher so you can visit and pick out more software plug-ins you want.

Even complex mixes are possible with just a laptop and one PowerCore X8. The unique combination of a floating-point Power PC with 8 Motorola DSPs, ensures tight integration into the native world while at the same time maintaining all of the advantages that DSPs offer for signal processing.

PowerCore's software and hardware has been designed to be future-proof and give the utmost quality sound possible. Extremely power demanding tools like mastering dynamics, reverbs, and other professional virtual processors run on PowerCore without draining the host computer's resources. With the introduction of the optional MD3 Stereo Mastering Package for PowerCore, even the most demanding mastering tasks can be performed with the PowerCore X8.

PowerCore X8 delivers an array of powerful tools right out of the box. Among the 14 virtual processors included, you get a complete collection of dynamics processing, including a virtual Finalizer (Master X), Vintage Compression and a Voice Channel Strip. You also get two TC-quality Reverbs, Modulation Effects, EQs, Synthesis, and more. From the large bulk of optional plug-ins from TC Electronic and 3rd party developers, there are choice treasures for virtually any professional application. Among them are the Restoration Suite, and the System 6000 plug-ins for PowerCore like the MD3 Stereo Mastering package and the VSS3 Stereo Source Reverb.

PowerCore X8 bundle ships with PowerCore 3.0 software, which is the biggest update to the PowerCore music software package yet, with lot of enhancements and new features based upon a great deal of input from previous users.

UPgrade Your Plugs

Ask me a question

Added this recently to Logic 8 - installed as an AU in the AU Manager no problem. Works just like any other AU plug but sounds 200% better. Some of the plugs are simply awesome - TC reverbs, delays and the Tube Tech CL 1B compressor are phenomenal. Fabrik is like another instrument. Sonnox plugs in Waveburner makes producing masters a one-hour job. The only gripe is that this unit greatly prefers 44.1K. I had to abandon two 48K projects as Powercore maxed out quickly and kept crashing Logic. In 44.1K you have power to burn. I am getting to the point that I couldn't work without this stuff.
