September, 2017: Discontinuing support for PowerCore

Back in 2011 we ceased further development of the PowerCore platform.

Although we have been doing no official development with regard to the PowerCore software itself, for almost 7 years we have however been maintaining the PowerCore account system, and provided customer support for PowerCore users.

As we are reorganizing our server infrastructure as well as human resources, we have come to the conclusion that we cannot continue our current support of the PowerCore infrastructure.

Therefore, on December 31st 2017, we will discontinue:

  • The PowerCore account system
  • Customer support for PowerCore

After December 31st 2017 it will no longer be possible to log into your PowerCore account to register products, transfer licenses etc. and we will no longer be providing customer support for the platform.

There is of course nothing that prevents users from using their current PowerCore system, also, we will keep the PowerCore forum running.

TC Electronic will continue to focus on music production and mastering, and we will be providing revolutionary solutions in these fields moving forward.

Future development of the PowerCore platform has ceased

As part of a larger strategic review in early 2011, we decided to cease further development of the PowerCore product range, including hardware units as well as software for the PowerCore platform.

With the most recent software release, PowerCore is compatible with the following operating systems:

  • Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard
  • Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard
  • Windows XP
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows 7

The PowerCore drivers support 64-bit operating systems, but note that all plug-ins are 32-bit.
