TC Electronic Clarity M Audio Meter

The TC Electronic Clarity M, is perfect audio toolbox for music creation and sound for picture, to help you make those crucial mix and mastering decisions.

The TC Electronic Clarity M's unparalleled functions, provide a veritable audio toolbox to help you make the right mix and mastering decisions, and with the high resolution LCD display, your readout will always be crisp and clear - in any studio environment. With its powerful suite of dedicated stereo tools, the Clarity M is the ultimate metering extension for music production and mixing. Based on our industry-standard loudness algorithms, the deviation meter helps you avoid bad mix-down surprises, ensuring that your mix sounds great no matter how it's played back. The correlation meter lets you easily identify phase issues and other anomalies, and with the RTA you can monitor frequencies outside your hearing range and easily pinpoint where your mix is mudding up.

Naturally no piece of equipment can replace your ears, but precise metering allows you to visually confirm specific details about your mix, making the process of setting optimum signal levels both quicker and easier. With the Clarity M you get a wealth of dedicated meters, that can greatly help you improve your mix - and with the 7" high-resolution screen, you are sure to always get maximum precision and definition in the readouts. By providing you with both that quick overview and the ever-important fine points at a glance, the precision meters of the Clarity M is perfectly suited for any mixing or mastering job - whether it's for music, picture or drama.

Most plug-ins, like reverbs and compressors, you only fire up a few times during a session; you adjust the appropriate parameters and close the plug-in once you're done in order to save precious screen real-estate. Your metering tools, however, need to be in plain sight at all times. The Clarity M connects seamlessly with your DAW workflow via a USB connection and allows you to get precise readouts from any output, you need. With the visual feedback of your mix pushed to a permanent screen, you no longer need to move plug-in windows around to have both your sequencer, effects and meters visible. Clarity M is quite simply the perfect integration of two worlds. Bridging the gap between the hardware and software worlds, the Clarity M lets you easily insert the routing plug-in anywhere in your DAW and enjoy the pristine readout on your Clarity M. With this unique feature you get hassle-free integration with your workflow in ProTools or any other DAW. The Clarity M supports plug-in metering via all modern plug-in standards, giving you the freedom to work with any DAW you prefer.

The Clarity M provides a wealth of digital connectivity. Our custom breakout cable (included) hosts 6 channels of unbalanced AES3 digital audio, that connects to your external mixing desk, console or audio interface for broadcast-grade 5.1 metering. Clarity M also provides a stereo optical input that lets you connect your audio interface through TOSlink for maximum flexibility. With the custom breakout cable included with the Clarity M, you can hook up a two-button footswitch for easy resetting of the meter as well as for triggering play and pause. It also allows you to monitor indications of overload to external equipment.
