IK MULTIMEDIA T-RACKS 3 MASTERING SOFTWARE SUITE
With a legacy of years of popularity inside hordes of DAW-based studios, IK Multimedia T-RackS 3 brings a new level of sonic fidelity and a host of new tools to the suite.
Using IK’s two proprietary modeling methods—DSM (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) and SCC (Sonic Character Cloning)—T-RackS 3 delivers state-of-the-art renditions of the classic Pultec EQP-1A and Farichild 670 devices, along with a new opto compressor, multi-algorithm brickwall limiter and 6-band linear phase EQ. The original T-RackS compressor, multiband limiter, clipper and equalizer complete the suite, and they all have high fidelity, true oversampling. They come in VST, Audio Units and RTAS versions, as well as an expanded stand-alone version that includes a detailed metering section (with peak level, perceived loudness, phase scope, RMS meters and a customizable spectrum analyzer).
The new mastering/mixing chain can run up to 12 processors in parallel or in series, and there are a ton of other new features, including latency compensation, fade-in/out curves, scene snapshots and multiple file processing.
