PowerCore X8 provides a massive amount of power, with 8 fast DSPs and oodles of RAM. It is ideal for high-end production environments where unsurpassed quality and processing capabilities are required. Designed for serious studios and professional applications, the PowerCore X8 is sure to deliver, and it will meet even the most demanding tasks and requirements. PowerCore X8 comes with 14 included plug-ins, among them, the renowned Dynamic EQ plug-in as well as the DeNoise plug-in from the acclaimed Restoration Suite package.

Even complex mixes are possible with just a laptop and one PowerCore X8. The unique combination of a floating-point Power PC with 8 Motorola DSPs, ensures tight integration into the native world while at the same time maintaining all of the advantages that DSPs offer for pristine signal processing.

PowerCore’s software and hardware provide the utmost in quality and a future-proof design. Extremely power demanding tools like mastering dynamics, reverbs and other professional virtual processors run on PowerCore without draining the host computer’s resources. With the introduction of the optional MD3 Stereo Mastering Package for PowerCore, even the most demanding mastering tasks, previously only known from System 6000, can now be performed with the PowerCore X8.

PowerCore X8 delivers an array of powerful tools right out of the box. Among the 14 virtual processors included, you get the most complete collection of dynamics processing available, including a virtual Finalizer (Master X), Vintage Compression and a Voice Channel Strip. Not to mention the two TC-quality Reverbs, Modulation Effects, EQs, Synthesis and more. From the large bulk of optional plug-ins from TC Electronic and 3rd party developers, there are choice treasures for virtually any professional application, among others the highly acclaimed Restoration Suite and the System 6000 plug-ins for PowerCore, like the MD3 Stereo Mastering package and the VSS3 Stereo Source Reverb.

PowerCore X8 ships with PowerCore 3.0 software, which is the biggest update to the PowerCore software package yet, with lot of enhancements and new features based upon a great deal of input from TC Electronic users.
In Depth
- PowerCore is compatible with all VST host applications, such as Nuendo, Ableton Live, Cubase, Sonar, Wavelab, Acid, Sound Forge, a number of film- & post applications and more. This means that you can use all PowerCore plug-ins within these programs.
- PowerCore is compatible with Apple’s Audio Units (AU) format. This means that PowerCore plug-ins will run in all AU compatible host applications such as Logic, GarageBand and a number of film- & post applications.
- PowerCore is compatible with RTAS (Pro Tools) via a so called wrapper. This means that in order to run PowerCore plug-ins from within ProTools, you’ll need to obtain the wrapper. The wrapper is able to translate the VST format into RTAS, and this means that you can use all PowerCore plug-ins within RTAS compatible host applications, such as Pro Tools.
