MASTER X HD uses advanced TC Electronic multiband dynamics technology to
compress and adapt to any source - from vocals and percussion, to guitars and
even keyboards. Due to the perfectly split- and recombining crossover filters
the inherent transparency of the multiband compressor brings out the qualities
of the source material, yet secures a firm and consistent level at all times. The
optimized and super-fast expander offers smooth and high precision expansion
of any source. The MASTER X HD is equally aimed for channel, sub-mix and master
MASTER X HD stands out in three distinct areas that make it the ideal unit for
demanding use in the studio or in modern live setups:
Intuitive – yet advanced
- Sound quality – this quality is ensured by proven and optimized sourcebased multiband compression, limiting, and smooth expansion.
- Versatility – decide on expansion, compression, limiting, or a combination,
adaptable to any source, and the MASTER X HD is up for the task.
- Intuitive – the fast and intuitive user interface and a mix knob for parallel
compression, makes for a fast, professional product.
The refined user interface features extremely fast and easy tuning of the many
parameters in a complex multi-band multi-dynamic processor. The overall
processing characteristics are controlled via a “Target Curve” that simplifies the
handling by providing a global processing style for all bands in all processing
blocks. The interaction between the bands can be fine-tuned by applying
“Target Factors” which determine the frequency focus of each processing
block, significantly reducing the number of required user parameters to set this
complex process up.
Additionally, MASTER X HD features a 'Mix' knob allowing parallel compression
without complicated routing schemes. The unique Parallel compression will lift
hidden details in every vocal or drumkit track.
Last but not least, MASTER X HD features a new take on Softclipping that includes
emphasis, which optimizes use on bass dominated material.
For enhanced precision in modern mastering, the TC Electronic Brickwall HD
plug-in features top shelf True Peak limiting and is perfect in combination with
Master X HD.
