At AES, TC Electronic introduced the Dynamic EQ, a new mixing and mastering plug-in exclusive to the PowerCore platform. The new EQ tool offers up to four definable bands, which can work in static or dynamic mode, or even a combination of both. Each of the bands can be configured as a parametric EQ or hi/low shelving filter.
Dynamic EQ for PowerCore is expected to ship in December at $499 MSRP.
The Sidechain bands are independent of the processing bands, so the high frequency content of a mix can control the low-end and vice versa. The processing of this plug-in is all in 48-bit double precision, and may even be used in a phase linear mode, for much more transparent results. Dynamic EQ represents a new generation of mastering tools for PowerCore. This virtual processor eliminates the shortcomings of static EQ by providing a marriage between dynamics processing and EQ.
