TC Electronic has added two new modules to its range of hardware-controlled plug-ins – the TC1210-DT stereo expander/modulation unit and TC8210-DT reverb

TC1210-DT and TC8210-DT

The TC1210-DT is a recreation of the company’s TC 1210 Spatial Expander + Stereo Chorus Flanger rack unit from the 1980s, while the TC8210-DT is an all-new design, but with a tone and character that promises to be ‘familiar to the many musicians and engineers, who have relied on classic clean and pristine TC reverbs’.

‘We’ve put a lot of time and love into recreating the 1210 with the same sound, the same feel, but with updated controls to fit in with a modern DAW-based workflow,’ says TC Electronic’s R&D Manager, Leon Mortensen. ‘To make sure the sound, versatility and tone is on par, we’ve even had a group of studio pros and long-time 1210 users participate in the development of the unit alongside our in-house team.’

Based on TC Electronic’s reverb philosophy of ‘natural and transparent air’, the TC8210-DT is the successor to reverbs known from the System 6000, TC’s studio workhorse and the Hall of Fame guitar pedals. ‘But with its even denser tails, better diffusion and refined hyper realistic room impressions that make the reverb sit better in the mix, the 8210 really takes natural ambience to the next level,’ Mortensen says.

With four units now in the series, TC Electronic is building a full range of modules that encompass any and all aspects of studio production, as well as a custom ‘docking station’ to house and power the units. ‘We want the TC Icon series to grow into an entire ecosystem of state-of-the-art effects and tools, that bring back the creativity and joy of hands-on tweaking,’ Mortensen confirms.

Alongside the announcement of the two new modules, TC Electronic is extending the ‘travel period’ of the units, so musicians and producers can take their work on the road for a full 60 days, before they need to reconnect the module to their computer.

The TC1210-DT is priced at US$ 199.99 and the TC8210-DTat US$ 99.99 MAP. Both will ship in Q4 2018.
