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.

Features

  • Three parametric bell-curve filters—each featuring a Gain, Frequency, Q, Pan and Focus control—independently boost or cut EQ at discrete pan positions in the stereo field
  • Innovative Focus control precisely regulates the panoramic width of your EQ adjustments
  • Proportional Q filter design prevents progressive EQ boosts and cuts from spilling over into adjacent bands
  • Color-coded Panoramic Spectral Analyzer plots changes to pan position, frequency and amplitude for stereo content in real time as you make EQ adjustments
  • Visual aid of Spectral Analyzer makes mix decisions easy while providing direct control over stereo position and gain of each band
  • Each filter can be independently bypassed or soloed; when soloed, the signal difference is auditioned, providing critical monitoring on processing
  • Re-sizable interface allows work on larger displays
  • Cut and boost at the same frequency on different points of the panorama to re-place instruments within a full mix
  • Create dramatic panning filter effects with automation.
  • Use bx_panEQ on mono signals to open up frequencies into stereo channels, adding clarity and width
  • ‘Stretch’ sounds by progressively boosting low to high, left to right or vise-versa to create a wider–than-life sound on instruments like guitar and keyboard

    I just finished mastering a track where the artist had used a loop as the main rhythm component. The loop was light in the hi-hat, but using the bx_panEQ I was able to focus on the hi-hat… Read More

    The bx_panEQ is something that’s crazy. I’ve never seen an EQ like this ever in my life, and the fact that I can automate where in the pan my EQ is changing is absolutely revolutionary.… Read More

    A surgical tool with great precision to EQ one side of the stereo image without affecting the other. Can't work without it.

    Gearslutz bx_panEQ Review

    “Personally, getting my hands on this plugin came at a great time as I was working on a string quartet that wasn’t recorded in the greatest of rooms. I was able to take out resonant frequencies from the violin on one side, whilst boosting some of the body of the cello on the other.

    Likewise, we’ve all had to mix drum tracks and there’s that one cymbal that really bothers you… not any more! This plugin could be a lifesaver! - Gearbot”
