TC Electronic introduced PowerCore Firewire, providing audio professionals on the move with audio processing on laptop or desktop systems. This addition to the PowerCore platform offers almost twice the power of the PCI-card version. Now even complex mixes become a reality using just a laptop computer and one PowerCore Firewire. Of course the PCI-card and the Firewire version of PowerCore can be used at the same time.

PowerCore Firewire offers the same unique architecture as PowerCore PCI, featuring a Motorola PowerPC and 4 Motorola DSPs. All signal processing is performed on the PowerCore unit, freeing up precious host performance resources for virtual instruments or native Plug-Ins. The hardware specifications go beyond those of the original card, featuring faster DSPs, a faster PowerPC and 3-times the amount of RAM per DSP.

"PowerCore Firewire is our new top-of-the-line product", comments Product Manager John Epperson. "We wanted laptop and mobile musicians and producers alike to have all the power they need - and more!"

PowerCore Firewire is fully compatible with PowerCore PCI and adds even more possibilities to the growing platform. PowerCore PCI continues to represent the choice for the desktop user.

Specifications (Excerpt)

  • 4 x Motorola 56K DSPs running at 150 MHz
  • 512kWords of SRAM per DSP
  • 1 x Motorola PowerPC running at 266 MHz
  • 8 MB DRAM for the PowerPC
  • 3 Firewire pass thru connectors (to connect more than one device on one bus)
  • System Requirements: Windows XP or Mac OS X 10.2, FirWire port

Shipping: May 2003
