TC Electronic PowerCore Compact is a portable, open DSP-platform processor that supplies plug-in and software-instrument processing for production on the road
The t.c. electronic PowerCore Compact is a portable, open DSP-platform processor that supplies plug-in and software-instrument processing for laptop production environments on the road. With the FireWire connector and the external power supply it only takes seconds to connect the unit to a computer, providing instant access to serious processing and production tools. However, it should be noted that the unit does require the power supply to operate.
The PowerCore Compact includes twelve plug-ins, while additional plug-ins can be added at any time from our ever-growing supply of optional plug-ins. Extremely power-demanding tools like mastering dynamics, reverbs and other professional virtual processors run on the external DSP engine without draining the host computer's resources.
Integrating seamlessly with most VST and Audio Unit host applications, the PowerCore Compact works on both the PC and Mac platforms. It will not load plug-ins that have not been written specifically for the unit, but the range of plug-ins available is first class. Up to four units can be hooked up to the same system via the FireWire connectors, or combined it with the PowerCore FireWire for even more power, or hooked up to a tower based computer system already running with PowerCore Element installed.
