the same award-winning System 6000 algorithms used by high-end

PowerCore 6000 includes world-renowned classic reverb, vintage emulations and source-based reverb and you have full access to MD3 multiband dynamics for no-compromise mastering, precision brickwall limiting and unsurpassed stereo to 5.1 conversion.
Even complex mixes are possible with just a laptop and one PowerCore 6000. 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 6000.
We've given you the freedom to choose the plugs you want for whatever your application. TC Electronic is constantly developing new and professional optional plug-ins, most notably 1:1 ports of original and undiluted algorithms from the System 6000. And third party developers are always adding more PowerCore plug-ins to the mix, which gives you the choice of the best tools and instruments around.
Future development of the PowerCore platform has ceased
As part of a larger strategic review in early 2011, we decided to cease further development of the PowerCore product range, including hardware units as well as software for the PowerCore platform.
With the most recent software release, PowerCore is compatible with the following operating systems:
- Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard
- Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard
- Windows XP
- Windows Vista
- Windows 7
The PowerCore drivers support 64-bit operating systems, but note that all plug-ins are 32-bit.
