TC Electronic today announced two new PowerCore plug-ins with an innovative approach to the user interface. Fabrik R (reverb) and Fabrik C (channel EQ, de-esser, 3-band/full band compressor) both feature MINT, Meta Intuitive Navigation Technology, a design and programming philosophy that transcends traditional UI thinking.
MINT™ allows the user to respond intuitively to any audio material with just a few simple knobs. Underneath the UI, hundreds of high resolution parameters are adjusted, leaving the user with simple controls to execute any creative decision.
Fabrik R is a multipurpose plug-in, which combines four new TC reverbs in one single plug-in: FabrikLive, FabrikHall, FabrikPlate, and FabrikClub. Thanks to MINT™, the parameters of the different reverbs can be easily and intuitively tweaked using only a few dedicated knobs. Music producers will benefit from the high-end reverbs of the Fabrik R and save precious time in the studio or on the road.
Fabrik C is a high-resolution channel EQ, de-esser, and 3-band/full band compressor in one single plug-in. The MINT™-based UI provides the user with a small number of knobs that control a large number of parameters. When the user indicates what type of source is being processed, Fabrik C adapts by performing the tedious adjustments, and leaves the important creative decisions up to the user.
These plug-ins are an example of TC’s approach to making the most complex algorithms and advanced audio tools available to the artist as well as to the engineer.
Fabrik R and Fabrik C are expected to ship in December, 2005 at retail EUR 299 ex. VAT.
