TC Electronic Finalizer Express
This is a digital mastering processor. The compressor operates in three frequency bands.
Complete connectivity: XLR + SPDIF coax


This version called "express" has the settings "essential" but it's more than enough saw the possibilities of the device.
The manual is very correct and French (available in pdf).
The basic configuration is pretty simple but it is important to understand the philosophy of the craft and do a lot of tests to find the correct settings from its sound. And do not hesitate to re-test after a few months of use to adapt to his style in detail.


I use it as an insert console device mastering.
Once found the right setup, this machine is truly formidable, quality and accuracy, confirming the famous TC Electronic in this area.


I bought mine used there are 6 or 8 months. Before I used a behringer ULTRAMIZER of the comparison stops there. Even if the behringer been quite good, the Finalizer has nothing to do, we are really in the range of pro equipment and you can hear bad!
As I said, I use insert on hand coupled with an equalizer.
Initially I started with the settings generally advised to son for months, I refined these settings to make it really sticks in my sound.
It's really an indispensable machine in a home studio and I do it again this choice without any hesitation. once it has, we can not do without it!

PRO XLR connectors


Use very simple, in one hour we toured.
But it takes several days to find the right settings, depending on each sound to be processed.
Manuel simple, perhaps a little lacking, though ...


The compression effect is really "KILLER"!
I weigh my words.
It's simple, my voice already optimized taken with my Focusrite preamp VoiceMaster Pro are even more "in your face" with the Finalizer to the taking!
I do not recognize my trusty guitar patch Disto my old Roland JV1080 expander.
A decision, it "feels" transients that vibrate like never!
The only machine that blew me away as is the RNC from 1773 to 300 € new, also very powerful!


6 months of use = OK
Value for money = top (Well I bought used in € 600). But again, I'll take another with eyes closed, even at € 1,200 (A credit still ...)
And this for one reason: "HAVE THE BIG HEAD TAKEN WITHOUT ITS"
And Yes! We forget the Vsti instruments that plant, or Cubase that Bugge, or compression effects that not always on top.

VOILA, simplicity and efficiency.
End of story, and let the music artists for us, not the PC technophiles.
