TC's System 6000 MKII is now shipping. Launched to critical acclaim in 2000, the original System 6000 quickly established itself as the industry standard for stereo and multi-channel reverb and signal processing.
But a lot can change in 10 years, which is why TC has upgraded both the software and hardware of the System 6000. With System 6000 MKII, TC Electronic has effectively re-tooled a classic to remain the de facto industry standard for the coming decade.
What's new...System 6000 MKII builds on the immense power and refined algorithms that made its forerunner an industry milestone.
System 6000 MKII Rack unit:
The System 6000 MKII is now available through regular TC channels, maintaining significant backwards compatibility with existing System 6000 units. The System 6000 MKII launch will also see the release of new and improved version 5.00 software. This version 5.00 software will run on older System 6000 models as well as the newer System 6000 MKII units, but please note that this is the last major software upgrade that will work on the older units. TC is offering all original System 6000 users the opportunity to upgrade their units at very competitive prices.
Upgrade path for original System 6000 users:
When developing System 6000 MKII, TC was very much aware of the legacy of the original System 6000. To this end, the upgrade path has been made as competitive as possible for those running System 6000s. Owners of the original System 6000 will have the opportunity to upgrade their System 6000 frame to full MKII specifications. The upgrade package contains the following elements:
The MKII upgrade is recommended for all users of System 6000. Our current release of software version 5 will be the last for the original platform.
System 6000 MKII upgrades will commence from May 17, 2010.
