TC Electronic has dropped the price of its Icon Series plugin + hardware controller bundles and are now available for affordable €98.
If you buy one of the Icon Series plugins you get two products. On the one hand the plugin for macOS and Windows. On the other hand, a matching hardware controller with lots of buttons and visual feedback. A concept that is also known from Softube and it’s pretty neat.
You get the power and flexibility from plugins but also the workflow of hardware units in a product. The only disadvantage: the plugins only work with the controller, i.e. they are so-called dongles. Just recently there was a price drop on the TC Electronic Icon Series plugin + hardware controller bundles. Most are now available for just 98€.
TC Electronic Icon Series
TC 1210 is a stereo expander and modulation plugin that is modeled after the TC 1210 hardware unit. The 8120 is a clear and natural-sounding reverb plugin with different algorithms including TC hall, box, ambient, room, club, live, plate and spring. It also includes a pre-delay, dry/wet control, and more.
2290 is a delay plugin that is modeled after the TC 2290 hardware unit. It makes it easy to vitalize your tracks with everything from crisp repeats, to complex delay rhythms and ultra-expressive modulated soundscapes.
DVR 250 is a reverb plugin that is modeled after the iconic EMT 250 Electronic Reverberator and TC 6000. Brickwall HD is a brick wall limiter plugin. It sports both classic and transparent limiting and modern loundness-orientd workflow. DYN 3000 is a versatile dynamics plugin with brings the flexibility and immediacy of a Midas console to your DAW. It hosts a flexible compressor and gate effects with intuitive controls.
PEQ 3000 is a 12-band parametric EQ plugin with intuitive controls and the best-known Midas tone. Master X HD is a multiband dynamics processing plugin with expansion, compression, and limiting separate for each band.
And if you have several of these controllers in use and don’t want to use a USB cable for each one, there is also an Icon Dock for these small controllers. In this frame, you can fix the modules and connect them with a single USB.
For the current price of 98 €, you get solid plugins with matching hardware controllers. The deal is nice if you want to try out the plugins. The exception is the TC2290 which costs €139. But it started at €199 two years ago.
