The T-RackS CS Deluxe Plug-In Collection from IK Multimedia features 9 plug-ins that are designed for mixing and mastering applications. Included in the Deluxe Collection are the Vintage Tube Compressor/Limiter 670; the Opto Compressor; the Vintage Tube Program Equalizer; the Brickwall Limiter; the Linear Phase Equalizer; the Classic T-RackS Compressor, Clipper, Multi-Band Limiter, and Equalizer; and a full metering suite. The plug-ins can be configured in the order you need them in a processing chain. T-RackS supports AU, VST, RTAS, and AAX plug-in formats on Mac and PC and also functions as a standalone program.
Vintage Tube Compressor/Limiter Model 670
Based on the Fairchild 670. With a faithful reproduction of every control, this is a model that captures the nuance of one of the best Fairchild units available. It was analyzed for months over every detail for accurate reproduction
Optical compression has a special sonic character that audiophiles can truly appreciate. This analog-modeled module faithfully recreates that particular (and extremely musical) "movement" that characterizes opto compressors. An important characteristic of optical compression is the absence of distortion and coloration during gain reduction, and you can expect the same character and performance from this digital recreation
Vintage Tube Program Equalizer
Based on what is known as studio favorite EQ, the Pultec EQP-1A. Accurate modeling of two real world units, with sonic performance that is designed to be indistinguishable from the originals, thanks to IK's DSM and SCC technology
This multi-algorithm Brickwall Limiter can make your masters loud without squashing them to a lifeless sound (unless you want that!). Selectable algorithms allow you to match the best limiting style for each program type
Linear Phase Equalizer
The T-RackS Linear Phase equalizer is a precision tool that allows for detailed, clean and transparent tonal intervention on your audio material. The T-RackS Linear Phase EQ is comprised of six bands of fully parametric equalization. Each band can be configured to work as a high pass, low shelving, peaking, high shelving or low pass, thus making the module extremely flexible. This equalizer is for when you need to make EQ adjustments on the audio program that don't "feel" as equalized and as natural as possible, as if the audio was never touched
Classic T-RackS Compressor
The T-RackS classic tube compressor emulates that classic, analog, vintage gear used in mastering applications. This will give you that warm sound typical of highly acclaimed hardware devices
Classic T-RackS Clipper
This clipping stage module is useful every time you need to cut out all the peaks that keep the average level of a signal too low. Peak clipping is used very often in mastering because it's in most cases more transparent than peak limiting
Classic T-RackS Multi-Band Limiter
This three-band peak limiter can make the mix even louder by reducing unwanted peaks. The peak limiting action is performed separately on the three bands (low, mid, high). You will have a very loud master, without clipping, though as with any of these processors, use care not to over-do it. Leaving the output knob set to 0 dB means that the limiter output signal can't go beyond -0.05 dBfs
Classic T-RackS Equalizer
T-RackS Classic Equalizer consists of a high quality six-band parametric EQ, specially designed to achieve high-end performance in a mastering environment. Its flexibility allows you to perform broad EQing down to narrow and very precise interventions. It comprises:
- 4th order high-pass filter, from 16 Hz to 5.3 kHz
- Low shelving type filter, from 30 Hz to 200 Hz
- Low-mid peaking type filter, from 33 Hz to 5.4 kHz, variable Q
- High-mid peaking type filter, from 200 Hz to 17.5 kHz, variable Q
- High shelving type filter, from 750 Hz to 8.5 kHz
- 4th order low-pass filter, from 200 Hz to 18 kHz
Complete metering section to have level, phase and frequency under a single, easy to read display for immediate access
