New York, NY (March 17, 2021)—TC Electronic has launched its line of System 6000 Native plug-ins for mixing and mastering, aiming to bring the sound of the company’s long-running hardware processor as a series of native plug-ins.
Originally launched in 1999 and available in Music, Mastering, Broadcast and Film variants, TC Electronic’s System 6000 processor has been a go-to piece of gear for many pros, and it’s not uncommon to find a unit in recording, film, post and mastering studios around the world. The System 6000 has won a trio of TEC Awards over the years—in 2000 for the original System 6000; in 2005 for the Mastering 6000; and in 2010 for System 6000 MKII.
According to the company, the plug-ins’ development team included numerous engineers from the original System 6000 team. The new plugs offer full support for standard DAW automation and project recall, along with new optimized user interface ergonomics.
MD4 HD NATIVE ($249)—Available for the first time as a plug-in for DAW-based productions, it is a high-definition dynamics processor that features a 6-band EQ, 5-band compressor, low levels focused DXP mode and optimized true-peak limiter.
VSS4 HD NATIVE ($249)—Also available for the first time as a plug-in for DAW-based productions, the VSS4 HD is a Stereo Reverb that aims to provide sound comparable to real-world mono or stereo sources positioned in an authentic or virtual space with adjustable early reflections and stereo diffused fields.
MD3 NATIVE ($199)—This is presented by TC Electronic as the core of its dynamics sound. It offers Mono, Stereo, Mid/Side operation and includes 3-band transparent Expander/Compressor, flexible EQ and modern Peak/True-Peak Limiting technologies.
NONLIN 2 NATIVE ($199)—It is a high-end effects reverb with envelope functionality for generating compact vocal ambience, reverse reverb, new effects and the traditional 1980s gated drum reverb.
VSS3 NATIVE ($199)—VSS3 is a reverb designed to deliver smooth reverb tails, add ambience to productions and more.
System 6000 Native plugins are compatible with all major DAWs and deliver full support for standard DAW automation and project recall. The plugs are available individually or as a bundle for $699; users upgrading from a VSS3 NATIVE plug-in to the current version can do so for free and get a reduced rate on purchasing the complete bundle at $599.
