TC ELECTRONIC PROCESSORS - Rack effects
These rack processors are equally at home in recording studios as they are in TV or radio broadcast studios or theatres and arenas. The selection includes a mastering processor, a multifunctional reverb, delay, pitch, dynamics and EQ processor and reverberation processors.
TC Electronic has a reputation for designing and manufacturing quality signal processing equipment for the broadcast, live sound reinforcement and post production audio environments.
The Finalizer 96K is a mastering processor designed to add clarity, warmth and punch to the audio output. Using the 56 x 128 dot graphic LCD display, the user can select and recall any one of 30 internally-stored presets or begin the wizard function process. The wizard function allows the user to automatically set the type of processing based on four multiple-choice selections. The Finalizer 96K then sets parameters such as limiting, multi-band expansion, gain maximisation, compression and dynamic EQ. The settings can be stored to one of 128 RAM preset slots, or to an external PCMCIA memory card (up to 2MB SRAM) if inserted into the memory card slot located on the front panel. The Finalizer 96K also has a range of useful audio analytic tools such as phase correlation meter, 'Level Flow' meter, peak hold meter, and digital I/O status.

The M2000 dual-engine, effects processor gives the operator the use of two independent and simultaneous effects. The unit includes four preset banks including two factory preset ROM banks and two user preset RAM banks, all with 128 slots. The first bank of factory pre-loaded presets includes reverb, delay, pitch, dynamics and EQ. The second bank includes 128 combination presets which, when recalled automatically, set the effect and routing options for both engines. Various buttons on the front panel of the 1U rack mount effects processor give quick access to I/O, routing, and MIDI utility setup, along with cursors to navigate the 56 x 128 dot graphic LCD display menus. Separate control over effects engines 1, 2 and combined 1+2 give quick access to the 'Recall Wizard' function, which can be used to quickly find the preset that best suits the user's intent, after inputting the preferred algorithm type, instrument, and effect level into the multiple choice boxes.

This is a dual-engine reverb unit, designed for professional music and film productions. Utilising the TC Electronic VSS technology, the M3000 can give a modulation-free reverb with a 'wide and natural' sound, simulating the responsiveness of an actual room. With 500 single factory presets and 100 combination factory presets, this reverb processor contains high-quality reverb algorithms including TC Electronic designed VSS-3, VSS-Gate, VSS-FP, VSS-SR, C.O.R.E. and Rev 3. It also houses many other popular processing effects including delay, chorus, tremolo, de-esser, and compression. The user can store up to 250 single user presets and 50 combined user presets in the available internal RAM slots, or the same number of user presets on an inserted PCMCIA card of 2MB. The M3000 shares the front panel layout of the M2000, including the 7-stage PPM indicators and overload, sample rate, MIDI in and tempo indicators.

This single-engine stereo reverb processor has been designed to complement any large-scale mixing console and have the intricacies required for professional studio work, whilst maintaining an intuitive and instantaneous front-panel work-flow for live applications.The 134 factory loaded presets, many derived from the TC Electronic Reverb 6000 and M5000, give the user instant effect access. Internal space for 100 user presets gives the user space to store their own customised presets based on any of the seven reverb algorithms available (NonLin2, VSS3, Ambiator, Reverb-4, VSS4, VSS4-TS, and DVR2). Up to 100 additional user presets can be stored on an inserted PCMCIA card and unlimited external user locations can be used if connected via USB to an external PC or Mac running TC Icon editor software.
The front panel has a 56 x 128 dot graphic LCD that shows the preset selection and pre-delay, decay, and hi-decay settings. One main rotary control-wheel allows the user to adjust parameter values in the control section, while up/down cursor buttons give access to control section menus and navigation. A third button is used to confirm operations such as recall. Three independent, rotary, control wheels give direct access to pre-delay, decay, and hi-decay - Useful for 'on-the-fly' editing. Input level meter (-40dB to 0dB, 7-stage), overload, sample rate (44.1kHz, 48kHz, 88.2kHz, 96kHz), MIDI in, and digital in LED indicators are located to the left of the screen. A final LED labelled 'Edited' is illuminated when a recalled preset has been edited but not yet stored. A power button is located in the top left of the front-facing side.
Analogue inputs: 2x balanced 3-pin XLR, 20kbohms. Analogue outputs: 2x balanced 3-pin XLR, 100 ohms. Digital inputs and outputs: 3-pin XLR, AES/EBU; RCA (phono), S/PDIF; optical, Toslink/ADAT.

The Reverb 4000 can be purchased as a stand-alone product, or as a package including the TC Icon MKII remote.
Reverb Twentyfour is a 24-channel reverberation processor with three reverb engines, powered by the popular Reverb 8 algorithm and System 6000 technology. Each of the 24 channels within the 1U rack mounting effects unit is independent and therefor suited to processing audio for formats including Dolby Atmos, Barco Auro or the Japanese NHK multi-channel format from 11.1 to 62.2, using additional, networked, Reverb Twentyfours if required. The Reverb Twentyfour is compatible with input signals including mono, stereo, 5.1 and 7.1 via the MADI I/O interface. Compatible with the TC Icon remote via RJ45 Ethernet connection.
A 'Power Correction' feature, that can be activated and defined, allows the addition of a D/R ratio safeguard (direct to reverberant ratio). As a result the balance between the audio signal and the applied reverb maintains the defined level of reverb loudness. This can be pre-defined to one of three stages; Off, 50%, or 100%. The TC Electronic 'envelopment technique' gives the user the ability to add more reverb to a signal that already has spatial information and the unit is downmix compatible to enable to 22, 11, 7, 5, 2, or 1 channel without introducing phasing or altering the mix.
The front panel of the unit features only indication LEDs for power on, sync, bypass and 'running' to indicate the status of the unit and 'net' which indicates when the Reverb Twentyfour is connected to a TC Icon remote or network computer running TC Icon software. The 'running' LED illuminates green or red depending on status, whilst the 'net' LED illuminates green, yellow, or red. The sync LED illuminates grey, green, yellow, or red dependant upon synchronisation to a signal source.
The rear panel houses all I/O connections including 1x 75 ohm BNC in and 1x 75 ohm BNC out for MADI, 2x RJ45 Ethernet connections for networking and optional Icon Remote, 1x 15-pin D-Sub connector for GPI and GPO, and an IEC power inlet for AC mains.
Power source: 100 - 240V AC, 50 to 60Hz auto-select, 7W typical. Dimensions: 483 x 44 x 334 (w x h x d) mm. Weight: 3.8kg.
