TC Electronic CLARITY M overview

  • 1Description

The Clarity M from tc electronic provides precise visual metering that helps make crucial mix and mastering decisions during audio production, mixing, mastering, or sound for picture post production. The seven-inch high-resolution display can show a quick overview, or the ever-important fine points at a glance. Aside from standalone operation, the unit supports plug-in metering via all modern plug-in standards, allowing a user to work with any preferred DAW.

Digital connectivity via the included custom breakout cable hosts six channels of unbalanced AES3 digital audio, connecting the meter to an external mixing desk, console, or audio interface for broadcast-grade 5.1 metering. Also available is a stereo optical input that can connect to an audio interface through TOSLink for maximum flexibility. The breakout cable allows for hooking up a two-button footswitch for easy resetting of the meter, as well as for triggering play and pause.

    TC Electronic CLARITY M reviews

    Clarity M - Desktop Audio Meter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great LUFS Meter I bought this for our remote radio broadcast setup. I don't have any need for the 5.1 surround stuff. But the rest of the information on the screen is easy to read and digest. I especially like the "radar" meter to get a good picture of how my levels are working over time. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because the stand is pretty awkward, especially for my application in a portable situation, but also generally because it makes it tight in the back to make the connections. They do market the option to attach it to a RAM mount system - which I'm considering, but still concerned about that system getting in the way of the wiring. Still, overall, it's a great product.
