Sony and TC Works announced in late October that the two companies will collaborate on developing plug-ins for the new TC PowerCore DSP card that will be based on the processing algorithms developed for Sony's digital mixing consoles. According to John Richards, senior manager of Sony Pro Audio R&D, Sony plug-ins are expected to be available for the PowerCore by spring 2002.
According to the release, the Sony plug-in for PowerCore will achieve the same performance as the version for Pro Tools or its consoles, offering the sound of Sony's digital recording consoles to users of computer-based digital audio editing systems and workstations.
“TC PowerCore has been designed as an open DSP platform that should provide the user with whatever DSP tool he needs to get the job done, from making music to high-end mastering,” says Ralf Schlunzen, CEO of TC Works. “So we are truly excited about having Sony's excellent products available to our users.”
