TC Electronic is now shipping the first in a series of System 6000 stereo plug-ins for Pro Tools|HD. VSS3 Stereo Source Reverb is now available as a TDM plug-in and will be distributed by TC Electronic.
VSS3 is a Stereo Source Reverb that uses Virtual Space Simulation (VSS) to accurately recreate the natural characteristics of acoustic spaces. This is accomplished through extensive processing, whereby the early reflected signals are manipulated separately from the decay or reverb tail of the signal. It is these separate components that are responsible for the character, localization and spaciousness of a room.
The VSS3 algorithm is made up of nearly 800 parameters, all of which have been condensed into a simple user interface. Industry-standard presets and customizable focus fields known from System 6000 are included. The built-in preset converter allows for import of VSS3 presets from TC’s System 6000, which contains some of the most sophisticated algorithms for mixing and mastering.
VSS3 and the forthcoming MD3, DVR2, and NonLin2 from TC Electronic provide new processing options to the Pro Tools|HD platform.
The MD3 Stereo Mastering Package is expected to ship in December 2005, and DVR2 Digital Vintage Reverb, and NonLin2 Stereo Effects Reverb are expected to ship in early 2006.
MSRP for the VSS3: $875.
