Overview

The Millennia TCL-2 delivers the stellar, transparent sonics of the beloved Millennia Twincom in plugin form. The original hardware Twincom features Millennia’s “Twin Topology” technology, which gives users the ability to select either a full tube, or full J-FET/solid-state signal path. Both the complete tube and solid-state signal paths have been faithfully modeled in the plugin version. In addition, the plugin version provides the ability to process Mid (M) and Side (S) information separately, as well as a Dry / Wet signal control for each individual channel.

The plugin version of the TCL-2 captures the tone of both of these circuit paths, bringing the Millennia sound to the DAW-based producer/engineer. From the transformer-less signal path, to the lower, tighter gain and threshold structure, to its unique single amplifier design, every aspect of the original hardware has been faithfully emulated in the plugin version. 

For the producer/mixer/engineer, the TCL-2 can be used for everything from ultra transparent peak control to some pretty crazy, stomped on and pumping compression effects. Mastering Engineers will love the precise control of compression parameters, the M/S processing capabilities and, above all, the stellar sonics.

    With most channel strip plugins you get the same channel over and over. bx_console N gives you the whole desk. Definitely brings a cohesiveness to a mix that you only really get from mixing on a… Read More

    I grew up in an analog world that I thought was long gone inside the computer. Today I found an analog desk in a plugin. bx_console N nails the sound of the Vx. The proof that the new ‘analog’… Read More

    My expectation was not high when I bought this, especially when the SSL certified E and G were just released. But man, I was wrong... Highly recommended !

    I'm truly astounded by the amount of work Brainworx has put into their console plugins. The N Console sounds fantastic but it covers so many functions I think I'll be using a lot less plugins now.… Read More

    I was using another companies SSL channel strip and I am now using the bx-console N from now on. It has a pleasant open sound. The high EQ shelf is quite steep, but when you don't use the shelf, the… Read More
