PowerCore Element (DISCONTINUED)
The true bargain for starting up or expanding your PowerCore based audio workstation!
PowerCore Element is not a stripped down hardware version of the “old” PowerCore PCI – it includes exactly the same PCI hardware as the PowerCore PCI card. A splendid set of TC quality plug-ins are included, covering reverb, dynamics, EQ, amp simulation, synthesis and much more. PowerCore Element is the ideal and affordable solution for those entering the PowerCore world or an excellent addition to those PowerCore owners seeking to boost their system even more.

The Tools
Fill up your virtual racks with rackmount-quality processors right out of the box: lush TC-quality reverbs, smooth chorus/delay, vintage compression, de-essing, a complete vocal processing channel, mastering EQ and even a virtual analog Synthesizer. On top of that you can pick your favorite tools from the growing number of optional plug-ins from TC Electronic and 3rd party developers.

The Power
PowerCore Element provides you with 4 industry standard Motorola DSPs and a PowerPC™. This unique configuration transforms any VST- or Audio Units-compatible software into a professional audio workstation. Run up to 28 Vintage Compressors, or 8 MegaReverbs or any combination of the included studio-quality effects without maxing out your computer’s resources. All DSP processing is performed on the card and the user interface only requires minimal resources.

Any Host
Pick any sequencer or audio application – as long as it supports VST or Audio Units FX plug-ins (to use PowerCore instruments, the application must additionally support VST/AU instruments).

PowerCore functions with all I/O systems supported by your application, making it the perfect addition to almost any existing system. (Check that your I/O card system doesn’t require ALL of the existing PCI bandwidth.)

Up To 4
Up to 4 cards may be used simultaneously in one system, though each card provides you with so much power that you probably won’t need that. In fact, with 4 cards you can go as far as has having a Master X3 (optional) on every track in a 32-track production. (PowerCore is not approved for operation in PCI expansion chassis.
