[Musikmesse] TC Electronic Clarity X
TC Electronic introduces this week at NAB and Musikmesse a new monitoring controller and calibration system for pro audio, the Clarity X.
The new TC Electronic Clarity X is mainly designed for broadcast, but mixing, mastering and post-production engineers will also find tools that will help them enhance their listening experience in studio.
The software and hardware suite features a measurement microphone, a rack on which you’ll connect monitors in up to 7.1 surround configuration with AES digital inputs, and a remote control. A MADI expansion card is available as an option.
On the software side, TC Electronic provides the Clarity X software/iPad app, which includes multiple meters, including the Stereo Deviation Meter that reflects how a surround mix will sound in stereo, the Center Ratio that measures the balance between the center channel (voice track for instance) and the other channels in a surround mix, or the LM8 Loudness Radar with 7.1 surround support and True Peak meter. TC Electronic also included is patented SPL meter technology that works without mic and allows for compiling sound pressure level data, which can help engineers prevent from hear damage due to long hours of listening at high levels.
