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.

    This plugin delivers vacuum tube saturation for days, from subtle warmth to dirty grunge, it sounds fantastic on digitally harsh sounds, and absolutely KILLS on vocals and brassy… Read More

    Saturation is one of the most important keys to mixing in the box, particularly heavier music, and this plug delivers tons of tube vibe and thickness for days!

    Producer/DJ (Armada, Axtone, Protocol, Revealed)

    One of my "go to" tools for warming up a sound. I just throw it onto a channel and I can instantly get a warmer, thicker sound. I can easily dial in more harmonics and saturation to taste. Simple… Read More

Customer Reviews

  • Twin tube

    ★★★★★
    by Kez
    Great alternative to eq for adding presence to vocals and snares. Really cuts through the mix without adding harshness.
  • Twin Tube

    ★★★★★
    by Roman @ Magenta Records
    TwinTube is one of these magic Plugins to use when you want some kind of fullness wich is not to achieve with your usual Plugins. A Twintube is running on almost every project i did in the past.

    I love the way TwinTube sounds, and having independent controls for the saturation and harmonics is lovely. One small niggle: I’m not the biggest fan of the clunky multi-button harmonics frequency… Read More

    Great for adding more gain, colour and saturation. Can give you authoritative lows and fuzzy highs. Being able to dial in the right amount of saturation at the right frequencies can make a sound… Read More
