TC Electronic Icon Series Legacy plugins are no longer bound to the hardware controller and are now available as native plugins.
Good news from TC Electronic. They have today released native versions of their Icon Series Legacy plugins. These plugins have been on the market for some time but only with dedicated hardware controllers like a kind of hardware dongle. From now on, they (DVR250, TC1210, TC8210 & TC2290) are also available as a classic plugin without these.
The plugins are the same with the same features. However, there is now the option to buy the plugin solo or in the controller bundle. The price policy is a bit strange. The plugins are currently available with a 20% discount. For example, the TC1210 plugin normally costs $ 99, the controller version only € 105 (Thomann). So I would continue to buy the hardware because there is no significant price difference after the intro sale.
Controller Vs. Native Customers
According to TC Electronics, both consumers (hardware version & native) benefit from the new version. That’s a nice move. However, we don’t know iThis was said on Facebook on a comment.
