Quick Overview

Includes Mainframe 6000, Digital I/O and TC ICON

System 6000 is an industry milestone. It is a proven fact that processors have made a genuine leap forward during the past 10 years. System 6000 was honored with the prestigious TEC award in year 2000, but its software and processing capabilities have developed immensely since then. This development path offers System 6000 users a wealth of free additions and new license possibilities.

A System 6000 without additional licenses, AKA Reverb 6000, contains dozens of pristine reverb, delay and boundary effects for any format from mono, stereo, LCR, LtRt to 5.1 and 6.1. Among the hundreds of presets available, the Halls of Fame bank and the Skywalker Sound Collection provides presets created by some of the most respected people in the music and film industry. With internal double precision processing, superb jitter rejection and reference quality AD and DA converters, no other reverb on the planet comes close to the resolution and performance of Reverb 6000.

Clearly, a high quality realtime processor can be used for more than spatial effects. Numerous license extensions are available in order to turn the 6000 into a mastering processor, monitor matrix, format converter and much more. Upsampled limiters, multiband processors, up- and down-conversion, George Massenburg's wonderful MDW® Eqs and Pristine research-intensive processing a la carte can be used stand-alone or well integrated with large format consoles or digital workstations.

Mainframe 6000

  • The heart of System 6000 and Reverb 6000, housing DSP’s, audio I/O's and control interfaces.

  • The four Engine structure gives the possibility of running up to four algorithms simultaneously, with 32 I/O channels internally.

  • Engine I/O’s connects to any of the physical I/O’s. Eight AES I/O channels is standard and additional six analog or eight AES I/O’s can be fitted into one M6000, giving 16 channels of physical I/O. Word Clock-input, SMPTE time-code input and MIDI In/Out/Thru are standard.

  • Connects to the TC Icon/Remote CPU via Ethernet, giving the option of networking several M6000's and ICON’s.

Icon and CPU

  • A high-resolution TFT active matrix color LCD, with a full size touch screen on top, combined with six motorized touch sensitive faders, gives you the most intuitive user interface on the market today. Simply find the parameters on the touch screen, and adjust them with the faders.

  • TC ICON connects with one multi-pin cable to the Remote CPU 6000.

  • The Remote CPU is a 1U rack computer executing the ICON program and controlling the communication with the Mainframe 6000. Connected to the Mainframe with standard Ethernet cable, enabling extremely long cable lengths between the CPU and the Mainframe 6000.

  • Standard TCP/IP protocol enables smooth integration with existing network installations and gives the ability to combine several Mainframes and ICON’s in a flexible network.

  • Optional monitor, keyboard and mouse can be connected.

System 6000 Software 3.3

  • Extended Skywalker Collection

    -The Skywalker Collection has been extended with new reverbs and boundary effects for stereo, 5.1 and 6.1 formats.

  • More Unwrap™

    -For the optional license Unwrap™ there's new features like optimized 5.1 conversions for film and music as well as an industry first high-resolution upmix of encoded LtRt material especially targeted for music.

  • Removal of 0dBFS+ signals

    -The BrickWall Limiter has been updated with new features for removal of 0dBFS+ signals in music and film mastering e.g. prevention of distortion generated in low bitrate codecs (MP3, AC3, AAC etc.) and sensitive consumer CD players.

  • New Dynamics Processing and Boundary Effects

    -Wild new swirl, wave and psycho effect bank for 5.1 and 6.1 formats, new dynamics processing for single sources, plus recreation of M5000 dynamics presets.
