TC Electronic releases the Tube-Tech CL 1B plug-in for Pro Tools HD

Highly advanced component emulation technology

Looking for a great all-around plug-in to use with Pro Tools/HD? Look no further than t.c.electronic'sTube-Tech CL 1B Plug-in.Based upon highly advanced component emulation technology, the Tube-Tech brings the sound of the legendary CL 1B compressor/limiter to Digidesign Pro Tools|HD, HD Accel and VENUE systems.

The CL 1B plug-in offers up to 30 dB of gain and a variable step-less ratio ranging from 2:1 to 10:1. It features innovative attack/release controls, with three different settings, enabling the CL 1B to be used as an insert or bus compressor. The Sidechain/Link button in the stereo instance of the CL 1B plug-in recreates the dynamic master/slave relationship between the left and right channels, a feature usually found when having two mono units interconnected via the Sidechain Bus found on the hardware version of CL 1B. As a unique feature, users can set whether the control of the compression is to be fixed at either left or right .

One capability that is unique to the CL 1B plug-in is the advanced metering, which can display the left channel, the right channel or both channels.

The CL 1B uses a carefully crafted algorithm, that allows the use of up to 2 instances in mono/stereo at 44.1 / 48 kHz or 1 instance in mono/stereo at 88.2 / 96 kHz per DSP chip on Pro Tools|HD Accel hardware. On Pro Tools|HD Core hardware 1 instance is supported per DSP at 44.1 / 48 kHz.

If those numbers make you drool, then you're probably already on the line with t.c. If not, you can get more information from the official t.c. electronic website.
