TC Electronic has introduced the PowerCore Compact, a lightweight and portable hardware platform with FireWire ports for easy laptop connection. Right out of the box, the twelve plug-ins provide processing tools for mixing, mastering and music production, and the new PowerCore device is expandable via optional plug-ins from TC Electronic, Sony Oxford, Access Music and others.

With the included and optional plug-ins, PowerCore Compact can be optimized for a variety of applications such as mastering, vocal processing and sound design. On top of the nine standard included plug-ins for the PowerCore platform - two types of reverb, two types of compressors/limiters, a chorus/delay, a parametric EQ, a synthesizer, a complete voice channel and a guitar amp simulator - PowerCore Compact comes with the brand new Character plug-in from Noveltech, the dual "analog" filter bank Filtroid, and Master X3, the virtual incarnation of the TC Electronic Finalizer.

Like all PowerCore devices, PowerCore Compact supports any VST or Audio Unit based digital audio workstation. It has the capability to run multiple reverbs, virtual Finalizers and other high-end effects simultaneously. The PowerCore Compact comes with a 266 MHz PowerPC and two 150 MHz Motorola DSPs each with 512 Kb Ram, and it connects instantly to computers via FireWire connectors. Multiple PowerCore Compacts can be combined with each other or with several PowerCore FireWires and/or PowerCore Elements for even more power.

PowerCore Compact will ship at the beginning of October at EUR 760/ 515 (ex.VAT) and USD $995 MSRP.

TC Electronic has also updated their PowerCore FireWire rackmount bundle to include all the plug-ins listed above, as well as the Dynamic EQ and DeNoise plug-ins. MSRP for the PowerCore FireWire is $1795.
