TC Electronic’s TC1210-DT plugin is an authentic emulation of the TC1210 spatial expander + stereo chorus/flanger with a dedicated hardware controller!

TC Electronic has expanded today their TC ICON plugin series with another release. The TC1210-DT is a new spatial expander plug-in that comes again with a dedicated hardware controller. This new modulation plugin is carefully modeled on the TC 1210 spatial expander + stereo chorus/flanger rack unit. It can be used per example to add spacious stereo image effects to your sounds/tracks.

The USB controller gives full controller of the effect processor without using your mouse so it offers a different way how to work with plugins. It’s an interesting move that TC-Electronic has made in recent months with its plugins (DVR250-DT, TC-2290DT). Since the danger is great now that you get a new controller for each new plugin, I would wish that TC brings out a kind of rack for where you can install the individual modules and so has a large USB controller. Nonetheless for me it’s nice to see that a company offers an haptic experience for plugins!


TC1210-DT is an exceptional stereo expander and modulation unit that brings the performance of the famed TC 1210 magic to your studio. With its innovative fusion of hardware and software, it captures the amazing sound and versatility of the iconic rack unit, and gives you unique tactile controls that will fuel your creativity and spice up your workflow. With TC1210-DT in your sonic arsenal, your stereo image will never be the same. Powered by an ever-present Haas effect, TC1210-DT conjures up beautiful and dynamic modulation, static widening and psychoacoustic enhancements that will breathe life and thickness into your tracks. In essence: it makes everything sound great – and that’s a promise!

Praised for its organic and silky effects, as well as its ability to enhance the other effects in your signal chain, TC1210-DT takes modulation to the next level. With two separate and independent chorus-flanger engines, it infuses exceptional warmth and identity into your music, allowing you to easily sculpt the ideal sonic texture and intensity – for subtle tweaks or thick and chewy modulation.Now you can add the sound of this legendary rack processor to your DAW. The sleek desktop control unit puts all key parameters right at your fingertips, allowing you to explore and experiment to your heart’s content. With TC1210-DT’s intuitive hands-on interface, you get total creative control of your sound design. 
TC1210-DT perfectly recreates the coveted sound of the TC 1210 Spatial Expander + Stereo Chorus Flanger, which has found its way into the hands of great artists such as Eric Clapton, Aphex Twin and Alex Lifeson. Based on the original schematics and careful measurements, TC1210-DT captures all the details, including the beautiful inaccuracies of the analog circuitry that made the original a thing of legendary status.

Besides input and output meters for signal monitoring directly on the hardware interface, TC1210-DT provides an innovative “Sigma LFO meter”, which reflects your modulation and helps you intuitively adjust the effect. The hands-on controls let you tune all tone-defining parameters, including the complexity of the stereo pattern, the combination of modulation effects and much more. TC1210-DT is an awesome addition to any console, mixing desk or bedroom recording station – and supports all modern plug-in standards. This lets you make full use of DAW automation and project recall, and gives you the freedom to work with any audio software you prefer.
