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.

    Add clarity without EQ, just like the classic! This box gives you top end air and presence like nothing else!

    Great tool, I’m using it on vocals and in the master chain -- great to make a vocal shine and stand out of a mix. Or just to ‘beautify’ the master a bit

    Awesome tone on this EQ; it's another one I sometimes bang on a bus or a tired mix down or an mp3 promo that just sounds too boring. Excellent presets for starting position.

    The Vitalizer is a really handy tool for getting tracks to cut through dense mixes. It's great for bringing out heavy guitars or keys in a layered metal mix.

    This is a really unique plug-in. Does alot of subtle things. It's sitting on every vocal bus I'm mixing currently so it's doing something I like. At the very least check out the demo.

    The Vitalizer MK2-T .......Just adds something that's hard to explain. Over all tone can be sculpted, it dose a beautiful kind of polish. Once you put it in a mix or master you will not pull it… Read More

    Thank you. Since bx_masterdesk has a mastering limiter built in, we recommend you use the SPL Vitalizer before the bx_masterdesk plugin.
