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
