TC Electronic's flagship reverb and multi-fx processor, previous to the System 6000. The M5000 is based on a modular "mainframe" concept, allowing the user to custom configure the M5000 for his or her needs, by adding DSP, Digital and Ananlog I/O, and even additional M5000s under the control of one remote. In fact, the finalizer was based on the M5000's "MD2" optional mastering/dynamics software upgrade, which included multiband compression and normalizing features. Remote control allows control of several m5000 mainframes. Floppy drive for software updates and saving of samples/patches. World Class Reverbs... Multi FX: Delays, Flanging, Chorus, Pitch shifting. On-board Sampling with up to 16MB RAM (SIMMs). The "ADA-2" 24bit/96k cards are the same as found in the System 6000. |
Rich and lush reverbs, from dark to shimmering. Great Delays, Chorus and Phaser algorithms. With the MD2 option, the M5000 becomes a powerfull mastering processor. Built like a tank, solid feeling knobs and buttons. Sampling feature can be used to replace recorded drum sounds.
Pitchshifting is not exactly the smoothest. But then again I'm writing this 10+ years since this unit was released.
