Features T-CHAIN CM
Harness powerful dynamics, EQ and distortion with your amazing free LVC-Audio plugin
Discover the processing talents of your free plugin
T-Chain CM is the exclusive Computer Music version of LVC-Audio’s modular channel strip, T-Chain. While the full T-Chain lets you string multiple processors from an extensive library of free and paid-for modules together into the channel strip of your dreams, the included T-Chain Single (TCS) plugin loads a single module at a time for when that’s all you need. T-Chain CM is essentially the TCS plugin, with a slightly reduced version of the $25 DynoPhuzz module built in, plus a selection of oversampling options.
A dynamic saturation unit with two distortion algorithms onboard, DynoPhuzz-CM is the headline act, but T-Chain CM also includes five further effects: a compressor, an EQ, a double filter, a gate and the innovative ClipShifter dynamic clipper. All are available in the plugin’s Load menu, and the impact they’re having on your signals can be see as well as heard, thanks to the dual purpose Waveform/Spectrum display.
In this tutorial, we’ll take a whistlestop tour of T-Chain CM, introducing you to the six modules and examining the global shell in which they’re used. If you like what you hear, you can step up to T-Chain and add modules (including the full DynoPhuzz) to your rack on a buy-them-as-you-need them basis, by heading over to the LVC-Audio website. www.lvcaudio.com
