New TC Electronic Audio Interface


TC Electronic tell us that Impact Twin is a brand new, state of the art audio interface that features ground-breaking technology to ensure that what's being recorded sounds as good on the inside of a computer as it does on the outside. Here's all the details from their press release...
Impact Twin offers a pristine recording path thanks to its two mic pre's that feature TC Electronic's acclaimed Impact IIIâ„¢ Technology. They each feature three stages: a high quality and very flexible Mic Amp, superior 192kHz/24bit HD Conversion, plus a set of recording Channel Tools, each carefully brought together to offer the ultimate in recording quality.
The Impact III Mic Amp has been designed from the ground up to maximize the signal recorded into a DAW and makes the best of any microphone: from the finest vintage tube mics to the most demanding low-budget condensers. With two Impact III mic amps, the interface also offers maximum flexibility. Whether recording instrument, line or mic, with or without phantom power, Impact Twin works for any situation.
Impact Twin features superior 24bit/192Khz HD Conversion. Conversion rates can be selected from 44.1kHz right up to High Definition 192kHz for the ultimate in pristine audio capture, maintaining the essential transients of the original sound.
For years TC Electronic has been innovating in the world of signal processing so Impact Twin also includes essential recording Channel Tools that go even further to optimize the sound with onboard EQ, Compressor and De-esser that quickly, simply and invisibly tame and enhance those signals.
Along with the ultimate recording path TC Electronic has also included many other features including iCheck (Integrity Check). This provides a shortcut for revealing any artifacts caused by data reduction – essential when encoding mp3 or AAC files.

    Marketing bullcrap FTL. This is obviously a rehashed Konnekt, why is there no mention of this? Personally I've had a *lot* of problems with my 24D, the drivers never seem to really get stable. Buyer beware.

    Unless this time it's different... would love to hear if it is.

    my d24 broke down one year after purchase. both potentiometers stopped working and followed by firewire failure. contacted tc and got a reply saying that i had to ship it to an authorized repair facility and pay $150. clearly was an acceptable since they posted on their site that they were aware of this issue...it was a bad batch of potentiometers and they have since stopped using them on the new manufactured unit. so, where does that leave those of us who purchased these lemons?! no more tc product for me.

    I hope nobody is 'brave' enough to be another guinea pig for TC . . . whatever it's release price is, it'll be less than half once it has established its reputation for quality . . . TC is starting from below zero and they had better work hard to try to redeem themselves from the damage they've done to project studios and their wallets over the past few years.

    Never had an TC interface. but I have a powercore X8 and D-Two delay... TCElectronics has been the best in my opinion.
