TC Electronic Film 6000 MKII Hardware for Film & Audio Mixing

Ultra-High Quality Comprehensive Processor for Film Production Audio Mixing

Film 6000 is - as the name implies - a special version of System 6000 MKII that is tailored for film production, offering all of the tools you need when creating and mixing audio for film.

When working with multichannel formats in film, it is absolutely key that your sense of space is consistent across channel formats.

Many reverbs will get more subtle, or almost seem to fade away, when going from 5.1 surround to stereo. This is not the case with the pristine reverbs of Film 6000 that appear equally vivid, realistic and crystal-clear whether in mono, stereo, 5.1, 7.1 or extreme multichannel formats like Auro and Dolby Atmos.

  • Tailored for Film Production - Born to Add Magic to Epic Moments on the Big Screen
  • Dedicated Film Tools - Pristine Reverbs, UnWrap HD, LM6 Loudness Radar Meter, AM6 Annoyance Radar Meter and More
  • System 6000 MKII Platform - The Audio Backbone of Thousands of Film and Music Studios Around the World

Tailored for FilmStarting in the 80's, TC Electronic pioneered the field of digital audio and have provided the pro audio market with state-of-the-art tools ever since. With Film 6000 they have collected all of the tools they know film creators use with System 6000. Capturing a visual moment perfectly is an accomplishment in itself, but true magic won't happen until you add audio. Film 6000 will help you create those amazing, epic, scary, sad, moving, hilarious, exciting, thoughtful, evocative moments for cinema and TV. In other words, it has become even easier for you to find the right combination of tools for this legendary platform. they have simply gathered and pre-installed all the tools relevant for film production so the system is ready to perform right out of the box.

Dedicated Film ToolsCreating realistically sounding spaces is key in film production - and reverb is absolutely essential in making this happen. Film 6000 comes with 19 of the best reverb algorithms known to audio in stereo, surround and even unlimited multichannel versions. Another essential tool is TC Electronic's legendary UnWrap HD, which has been used for more than a decade by virtually all major Hollywood studios for unfolding a stereo signal to 5.1 surround. Further, loudness has also become an issue in film. Obviously, movies have to co-exist with other types of program material in broadcast, but also in cinema, loudness normalization is being recognized as a meaningful way of measuring audio. To make sure all needs are catered for, TC Electronic have included their ITU-compliant LM6 Loudness Radar Meter as well as the TASA-compliant AM6 Annoyance Radar Meter.

Proven PlatformThe hardware platform of Film 6000 has been tested intensively in the most demanding production environments since 1999. You will find System 6000 in literally thousands of world-leading recording, film, post and mastering studios all over the world, and in quite a few OB vans and broadcast production studios as well. The platform has won no less than three of the prestigious TEC Awards over the years. In 2000 for the original System 6000, in 2005 for Mastering 6000 and in 2010 for System 6000 MKII.

Skywalker Sound Chooses System 6000 Again and Again

Skywalker Sound was founded by George Lucas and apart from creating the sound for Star Wars, their credit list is nothing short of amazing. From Indiana Jones over Shrek and Harry Potter to Transformers and many, many more.

Skywalker Sound was founded by George Lucas and apart from creating the sound for Star Wars, their credit list is nothing short of amazing. From Indiana Jones over Shrek and Harry Potter to Transformers and many, many more.

Skywalker Sound was among the first to integrate the original System 6000."TC Electronic installed their first TC System 6000 in 1999," recalls Doug Ford, Skywalker Sound's engineering supervisor

"The quality of its algorithms, as well as ease-of-use and flexibility, meant that TC Electronic had to increase their stock over the next year or so to a total of 11 units. Since purchasing the units their mixers and sound designers have collaborated with TC to modify and improve the algorithm library - and some have even bought their own, personal 6ks!"

In 2011 Skywalker Sound upgraded all of its 11 System 6000 units to the MKII version."This latest upgrade greatly improves their ability to move projects from one room to another by exchanging User Presets and Automation data over TC Electronic's corporate network," continues Ford. "It's remarkable that the core hardware - which TC Electronic bought more than 10 years ago - continues to benefit from significant feature releases that made this year's hardware upgrades a worthwhile investment."

Reverb 8 - Included with Film 6000 The world of audio is ever-evolving. Multichannel formats are no longer limited to 5.1 or 7.1. Today, you may have to be able to deliver for extreme surround formats like Dolby Atmos, Barco Auro or NHK Super Hi-Vision spanning from 11.1 to 62.2. As always, they stay ahead of the curve with regard to the latest trends and formats in pro audio, so TC Electronic developed the world's first true high definition multichannel reverb that is ready to make the most of these new 3D Sound formats.

Film 6000 Tools Film 6000 comes with all of the algorithms that was included with the legendary Reverb 6000 - Multichannel as well as Stereo Reverbs. Plus the 8-channel Rev8 algorithm that was not available for the original Reverb 6000. On top of that, you get a lot of additional algorithms that are invaluable in film production, including UnWrap HD, LM6, AM6, Varipitch 8 and Toolbox 5.1. Below, you will find a complete list of the tools included with Film 6000.

Multichannel Reverbs With this license you can access SpacePan and every reverb and delay preset, including the complete Halls of Fame bank and the Skywalker Sound Collection.

VSS™ Surround Unique room simulator for matrixed sound production. This algorithm turns the diffused field of the simulation into an Lt/Rt signal.

VSS™ 6.1 If you need to add reverb to an existing 5.1 or 6.1 signal or move sources around with a joystick, VSS™ 6.1 Reverb is your algorithm.

VSS™ 5.1 Source A true 5.1 simulator algorithm with multi-directional, early-reflection patterns, a wide sweet spot and fully uncorrelated rendering.

VSS™ M4 4 discrete mono reverbs. Engineers often find such a setup more useful than using pre-configured structures for stereo, 5.1, 6.1 and other formats.

Reflector6 An extremely versatile delay and boundary effect that can reflect any environment. Easy to edit, so you can remain intuitive while mixing.

SpacePan TC Electronic's 8 input panning algorithm allows you to position any audio source precisely in a real-time or surround environment.

Stereo Reverbs This license includes their very best stereo and dual source reverbs and delays - for example VSS3, VSS4, Nonlin2 and Reflector - plus access to hundreds of film and music presets as well as the stereo section of Halls of Fame.

VSS™ 4HD Highly advanced stereo reverb capable of treating source-related reflections from multiple angles with results of unrivalled precision.

VSS™ 3 What you get is simply a ‘true-to-life’ sound. We’ve designed this algorithm to pains
