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

  • State-of-the-art processing allows any multitrack session to be mixed in 3D, delivering a true to life immersive soundscape with binaural or Ambisonic playback
  • No ancillary software or external routing is required—all processors are contained in a single plugin
  • Position and move an object’s sound in real time in a virtual 3D environment using a graphical XYZ pad or separate sliders for adjusting the sound’s azimuth, elevation and distance to the listener
  • Includes 46 vivid virtual acoustic environments to choose from, each independently recallable per plugin instance
  • Controls for virtual environments adjust their size; damping; balance of early reflections and diffuse reverb; and distance of walls, ceiling and floor to listener
  • Powerful Realtime Auralization mode continually changes the delay times and directions of arrival for early reflections as you move an object’s sound around in its virtual space
  • Occlusion control realistically adjusts the sound of an object being blocked by another virtual object in line of sight to the listener
  • Separate controls scale parameter ranges for azimuth and distance to maintain perfect sync between audio and corresponding virtual objects in motion
  • Outputs audio in eight different formats: 2-channel binaural (for 3D playback using standard headphones); 4-channel first order, 9-channel second order and 16-channel third order Ambisonics output in either AmbiX or Furse Malham (FuMA) format; and 2D stereo

    I can count on one hand the number of VR and Ambisonic plugins that I actually want to use, and that list got smaller because dearVR just replaced three of them. It’s completely brilliant,… Read More

    Have not heard a verb as transparent since the Lexicon. This is insanely good and especially when creating cool rooms for drums and percussion. Love that you can separate verb and reflection, did… Read More

    Fantastic, easy to use and understand. At the same time easy to get deep and precise with it. Sonically great in a field that isn't overly developed yet.
    The only major hangup is that it does… Read More
