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.

    The TCL-2 is beautifully constructed and is as sonically neutral as anything I have heard.

    I am the devoted owner of several of John Le Grou’s spectacular Millennia modern classics. The TCL-2 is nearly identical to the hardware and that’s a VERY good thing.

    Love the sound of the Millennia EQ. It just gives that sparkle on the top.

    As a second compressor on a vocal or my main compressor on bass, it's always in my arsenal. Like the bastard lovechild of an 1176 and an LA-2A, you get it all.

    Exactly what I was looking for as a mix buss compressor. The M/S feature really opens up the soundscape, and the digital mix just sounds instantly better through this. Love it! Thank you Plugin… Read More

    This gives you some of the most desirable compression in history. It's not perfect for everything, but in little time you will likely find a setting that will be very pleasing regardless of the… Read More

    Smooth and transparent with a sheen of class!
    by Steve Paine
    Millennia are particularly popular in the broadcast and film industry for their ultra clean and transparent sound and that has certainly been captured here in this very capable plugin emulation.Read More
