TC Electronic Finalizer 96K

Finalizer 96K dramatically enhances your material, creatingthat "radio ready" sound that was previously unattainable outside aprofessional mastering house.

Finalizer 96K builds on our multi-award-winning mastering technology and delivers an unprecedented level of clarity, warmth and punch to your mix. 96 kHz internal and external processing truly puts the world of professional mastering within reach of every studio - large or small.
  • Punch - Add a Touch of Magic to Your Production. Make it Stand Out from the Crowd.
  • Clarity - 96 kHz Internal and External Processing. No Compromises Allowed.
  • Versatility - More than Multi-band Compression. A Complete Range of Mastering Tools.

  • True 24 Bit / 96 kHz
    We have equipped Finalizer 96K with true 24bit resolution A/D and D/A converters, capable of translating AES/EBU, S/PDIF and Tos input to the Finalizer's internal or external rate. You also get full Up- and Down Sampling, and you can set the Sample Rate Conversion rate to 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2 or 96kHz.

    The ADAT interface enables you to choose 2 ADAT channels and direct them to other ADAT channels. This enables you to bounce tracks while processing the sound with the Finalizer's unique features. Finalize your mix and turn it into a masterpiece.

    Simple Versatility
    Finalizer 96K gives you all the features you need to add the finishing touch of magic to your mix. The multi-band processor will make your mix sound punchier and crispier, allowing you to easily turn your demo tapes into mastered recordings.

    If you have a particular external device that you want to add to the arsenal of mastering tools, you can simply insert it via either the analog inputs or digitally via AES/EBU, S/PDIF or Tos-link. Likewise, you can also insert internal effects - for instance if you want to refine the overall EQ before compressing the signal.

    Analyze This!
    Finalizer 96K comes with a wide range of extremely useful analyzing functions: Phase Correlation Meter, Level Flow Meter, Peak Hold Meter and Digital I/O Status. Even a Calibration Tone Generator is included with Finalizer 96K.

    Make your mastering decisions on monitoring and serious analyzing!

    The successful Wizard function is naturally a part of Finalizer 96K, and it will immediately calculate an optimal setting for your material, making mastering easy.

    However, if you prefer total control, you can also delve in to the tiny details with more than 90 parameters.

    Do the Dither
    Dithering is very important when you interface digitally. The output resolution of Finalizer 96K is 24bit, but you can Dither from 8-22bits.

    If your signal is in Stereo, Uncorrelated Dither is the best choice, if it is in Mono, Correlated Dither will be the most unobtrusive, and if your signal is unfocused, Inverse Dither may be your best choice.
