Cover Your Spaces
MUSIC 6000 gives you no less than 18 pristine, multichannel and stereo reverbs plus the M5000 state-of-the-art delay, chorus and phaser effects as well as hundreds of presets.
For dynamics processing, our acclaimed MD3 and MD4 multiband compressors as well as Brickwall Limiter 2 have you covered.
Also included is Matrix 88, a digital 8-channel summing mixer, offering upsampled limiting, 48 bit summing, accurate delays and bit transparency.
On top of this, you get our famous LM6 Loudness Radar Meter and the unmatched, sweet MDW HiRes EQ developed strictly to the personal specifications of the legendary George Massenburg.
The hardware platform of TC Electronics Music 6000 has been tested intensively in the most demanding production environments since 1999.
You will find System 6000 in literally thousands of world-leading recording, film, post and mastering studios all over the world, and in quite a few OB vans and broadcast production studios as well.
The platform has won no less than three of the prestigious TEC Awards over the years. In 2000 for the original System 6000, in 2005 for Mastering 6000 and in 2010 for System 6000 MKII.
MUSIC 6000 Tools
TC Electronics Music 6000 comes with all of the algorithms that was included with the legendary Reverb 6000Multichannel as well as Stereo Reverbs. Plus the 8-channel Rev8 algorithm that was not available for the original Reverb 6000.
On top of that, you get a lot of additional algorithms that are invaluable in film production, including UnWrap HD, LM6, AM6, Varipitch 8 and Toolbox 5.1.
Below, you will find a complete list of the tools included with TC Electronics Music 6000.
With this license you can access SpacePan and every reverb and delay preset, including the complete Halls of Fame bank and the Skywalker Sound Collection.
Unique room simulator for matrixed sound production. This algorithm turns the diffused field of the simulation into an Lt/Rt signal.
If you need to add reverb to an existing 5.1 or 6.1 signal or move sources around with a joystick, VSS 6.1 Reverb is your algorithm.
VSS 5.1 Source
A true 5.1 simulator algorithm with multi-directional, early-reflection patterns, a wide sweet spot and fully uncorrelated rendering.
4 discrete mono reverbs. Engineers often find such a setup more useful than using pre-configured structures for stereo, 5.1, 6.1 and other formats.
An extremely versatile delay and boundary effect that can reflect any environment. Easy to edit, so you can remain intuitive while mixing.
Our 8 input panning algorithm allows you to position any audio source precisely in a real-time or surround environment.
This license includes our very best stereo and dual source reverbs and delaysfor example VSS3, VSS4, Nonlin2 and Reflectorplus access to hundreds of film and music presets as well as the stereo section of Halls of Fame.
Highly advanced stereo reverb capable of treating source-related reflections from multiple angles with results of unrivalled precision.
What you get is simply a ‘true-to-life’ sound. We’ve designed this algorithm to painstakingly recreate room types that are incredibly convincing.
Envelope, Attack, Hold and Release parameters set you free to create compact vocal ambiance, dramatic eighties drum and percussion sounds, reverse reverbor your own new sonic creations.
Generic Reverb with a true vintage flavor and a flattering sustain effect. It complements Source Reverb very well, and both can be great for different types of reverb applications.
An extremely versatile delay and boundary effect that can reflect any environment. Easy to edit, so you can remain intuitive while mixing.
Reverb that’s great for percussive instruments. It comes with a well-defined and precise build up and the uncorrelated design ensures perfect mono compatibility.
Classic and true stereo reverb. Control decay time with four individually adjustable frequency bands and create sounds with virtually no audible early reflections.
Great effect for small room simulations. Professionals in film and post production have found this algorithm perfect for reproducing the short ‘tails’ of small rooms.
24 bit true stereo delay that gives you up to 2.5 seconds in each channels with basic feedback control. You can use it with sample rates up to 96kHz.
Delay with filtered feedback control. Now you can modulate delays with full control over the relative L/R phase to emulate chorus or tape delay perfectly.
High-resolution stereo chorus and flanging effects as well as modulated stereo delays of up to 650 ms per channel.
Stereo Mastering Tools
Our three stereo mastering algorithms are the absolute high-end tools for Multiband Compression, EQ, Expanding, Normalizing, and Brickwall Limiting. The result: nothing less than a flawless sound for every end listener.
Advanced, high-resolution, multiband dynamics algorithm that includes the innovative DXP mode, allowing you to lift up low-level detail individually in each band.
This high-resolution, multiband dynamics processor has been the industry standard for more than a decade. It will split your audio into individual frequency bands before expanding and compressing.
Digital 8-Channel Mixer. Achieve maximum resolution with the intelligent limiter, advanced digital summing mixer, accurate delays and bit pattern transparency
A Classic M5000 algorithm that gives you a digital version of the highly-acclaimed TC XII stomp box. It features several swept filter sections to control the impact of your effect.
