After TC Electronic released the PowerCore FireWire last year, the DSP boost that it provides has become more accessible to both desktop and laptop users of FireWire equipped computers although, you can add it to most PCI or PCMCIA equipped machines for little cost too. Clearly, TC now want to ensure that it attains the hallowed status of Industry Standard. As promised, 3rd party development is beginning to result in more plugs for the platform, with the recent Access Virus being a prime example. Because of this, TC today announced a shift in company strategy to focus more resources on the PowerCore platform. As a result, TC Electronic will be discontinuing further development of Spark and Native Bundle as of the current versions (Spark 2.8.2 and Native Bundle 3.1). "PowerCore has been very successful for us and with growing support from 3rd party developers like Sony and Access, users can expect more great things to come," says Uffe Kjems Hansen, vice president of product management at TC Electronic. "With such great momentum behind PowerCore, we've made the difficult decision to discontinue development on Spark and Native Bundle so we can give PowerCore the resources it deserves." TC Electronic will continue to provide support to users of Spark and Native Bundle through TC Support Interactive (via www.tcelectronic.com). See our review of the PowerCore FireWire
