TC Electronic's Focus on PowerCore Platform

With the introduction over the past year of PowerCore FireWire and Element, and the announcement of several new third-party developers, PowerCore, TC Electronic's open platform DSP engine, is fast becoming the industry standard for computer based signal processing. PowerCore and its related plug-ins now account for almost 90 percent of the company’s computer recording revenue. Because of this, TC today announced a shift in corporate strategy to focus more resources on the PowerCore platform.

As a result, the company will be discontinuing further development of Spark and Native Bundle as of the current versions (Spark 2.8.2 and Native Bundle 3.1).

“PowerCore has been very successful for us and with growing support from software developers like Sony and Access, users can expect more great things to come," says Uffe Kjems Hansen, vice president of product management at TC Electronic. "With such great momentum behind PowerCore, we've made the difficult decision to discontinue development on Spark and Native Bundle so we can give PowerCore the resources it deserves."

TC Electronic will continue to provide support to users of both products through TC Support Interactive via their Website, located at www.tcsupport.tc.
