Powercore MK1 PCI Card


im thinking about buying a 2nd hand TC Electronic Powercore Card to take some of the load of my tired but workhorse of a G4

I can pick up a MK1 PCI card real cheap at the min
but im struggling to find any information on what the standard Plugs ins that were shipped with this card were.... as its only supplied with the standard plugs ins

if anyone knows what they are or where i could find out that would be cool?
I have heard great things about the powercore cards what are your experiences?

If its a mk 1 full card it comes with .....

PowerCore 01
Tubifex (with driver update)
Vintage CL

If its an element card it has all of the above except the master x3

Both cards are physically identical.

As for experiences i,d say that the classicverb is really nice and the tubifex is pretty cool but the rest are pretty underwhelming.

If you are regularily using several reverb instances its a good buy otherwise you really need some of the other plugs like the sony oxford stuff to get the most out of the card.

I have powercore and uad in my system and i only use the powercore for classicverb ,vss3 and tubifex.

The uad compressors and eq,s blow the crap out of the basic powercore ones as do a lot of native plugins.

I hardly use anything else on my Powercore. All of the above are great!
