TC PowerCore - 1.5 Is Coming

With support for PC and virtual Instruments      24/10/01
We like PowerCore here - checkout our review. With one of these babies installed, the virtual studio becomes a closer reality. With the creamy smooth reverb algorithms from TC and other FX, you can stack em up without maxing out your host CPU. The only downside was that it was Mac only and didn't have any support for instruments. Well, now TC|Works has announced TC PowerCore Version1.5, an open DSP hardware platform for any VST recording application. The new version provides PC compatibility and virtual instrument support among other enhancements from the original PowerCore package. If broken into the technology components, the extensive collection of included DSP Tools now provides 18 algorithms - all of exceptionally high quality. The comprehensive new VoiceStrip Channel Strip Plug-In alone integrates 6 algorithms! With approximately 40% less native CPU-load per PowerCore Plug-In, PowerCore 1.5 optimizes host performance even further. "VST is a fantastic platform for audio production, as it is totally open and supported by most major audio and sequencer products on Mac and PC - that's what made the concept so successful. With TC PowerCore we want to elevate the user's system experience to a higher end sector of the market", says Ralf Schluenzen, CEO of TC WORKS. "With the integration of Virtual Instruments and Windows 98/2000/ME/XP support only 5 months after initial ship on the Mac, we provide users of native systems with a complete and truly powerful and open DSP platform, finally realizing the quality and predictability of a DSP-based platform, yet retaining the openness of their VST environment", comments Schluenzen. A successful 3rd party developer program is currently running with yet more PowerCore Partners positioning to develop for the platform in the near future. PowerCore 1.5 for Mac and PC will be shipping in December 2001.
