Product description

The latest progression in TC’s Multi-Award winning mastering technology - the Finalizer 96K - delivers unprecedented levels of clarity, warmth and punch to your mix. The Finalizer 96K's all new set of advanced features and enhancements, including 96kHz internal and external processing truly puts the world of professional mastering within reach of every studio - large or small.Inserted between the stereo output of your mixer or workstation and your master recording media, the Finalizer 96K dramatically enhances your material, creating that "radio ready" sound - previously unattainable outside a professional mastering house.

True 24 bit/ 96 khz Performance
New features have been added to the Finalizer 96K. It has been updated with new true 24bit resolution A/D and D/A converters. Sample Rate Converter translates AES/EBU, S/PDIF and Tos input to the Finalizer’s internal or external rate. The Finalizer 96K is now able to perform full Up- and Down Sampling, and the Sample Rate Conversion rate is e.g. 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96kHz.The ADAT interface enables you to freely choose 2 ADAT channels and direct them to other channels on the ADAT. 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
The Finalizer 96K gives you all the features you need to add the finishing touch to your mix. The Finalizer 96K’s multi-band processor will make your mix sound punchier and crispier. With the Finalizer 96K you can easily turn your demo tapes into finished recordings. You just decide what your recordings should sound like and the Finalizer 96K will make it happen.

If you prefer using an external device and insist on using it, the Finalizer 96K gives you the ability to insert it, using the analog inputs or Digitally via AES/EBU, S/PDIF or Tos-link. The Finalizer 96K also gives you the choice of inserting internal effects, this if useful for you when you e.g. want to refine the overall EQ before compressing the signal.

Analizer Functions
The Finalizer 96K features a wide range of extremely useful analyzer functions: Phase Correlation Meter, Level Flow Meter, Peak Hold Meter and Digital I/O Status. Even a Calibration Tone Generator is included in the Finalizer 96K.

Making it Easy
The successful Wizard function is naturally a part of the Finalizer 96K and it will immediately calculate an optimal setting for your material. The more experienced user may tweak the signal path extensively with more than 90 parameters to choose from. All of the Finalizer’s functions are easily monitored on the graphic LCD and on the seven precision LED meters.

The use of dithering is very important when interfacing digitally between audio equipment. When resolution is changed from higher to lower, dithering is necessary to minimize distortion. In the Finalizer 96K you have the user friendly TPDF Dithering. The output resolution of the Finalizer 96K is 24bit, when the receiver of the Finalizer signal has a lower resolution, output Dither must be applied to equal the resolution of the receiver. You can Dither from 8-22bits. If your low level signals are in Stereo, Uncorrelated Dither is the best choice, if they are in Mono, Correlated Dither will be the most unobtrusive. If the low level signals are unfocused, Inverse Dither may be your best choice.

The Finalizer 96K is now able to perform full Up- and Down Sampling.

You can enter and exit at any Sample Rate e.g. 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96kHz and make even asynchronous conversion possible. This is essential for you, when working in different Sample Rates.

If you want to work with old or already finished material, you now have the ability to Up Sample to 96 kHz through the Finalizer 96K and re-master, if that's what you want. The Up- and Down sample option also makes you well prepared for the DVD or super-CD audio format coming up in the near future.

Contact you local service center for further information about the upgrade kit for the Finalizer, so you also can make full Up- and Down Sampling!
