IBC2016: TC Electronic releases Clarity M meter

TC Electronic has announced Clarity M, a new stereo and 5.1 audio meter for mixing, mastering and post-production.

Designed as a ‘veritable audio toolbox’ to assist users in making crucial mix and mastering decisions, Clarity M offers a 7in high-resolution display, seamless DAW integration and precision meters that the company says will help greatly improve mixes and ensure compliance when delivering to specs.

The dedicated stereo and surround tools make the Clarity M equally ideal for music production, film and drama projects, and is suitable for a wide range of studio environments.

Metering options include the Loudness Radar, a ‘state-of-the-art’ True-Peak meter, down-mix compliance meters, a Real Time Analyzer and correlation meters for stereo and surround tasks.

Clarity M, which is set to debut at IBC later this week on the HHB booth (8.D56), connects to the DAW workflow via a USB connection and allows the user to view precise readouts from any output needed. With the visual feedback of the mix pushed to a permanent screen, there is no longer the need to move plug-in windows around to have a sequencer, effects and meters visible.

It is available at a suggested list price of $689.99 (USD) and is covered by parent company MUSIC’s 3-Year Limited Warranty Program.
