Our T-RackS 5 Deluxe collection provides you with the professional tools you need to take your mixing and mastering talents to the next level. It features 22 analog-modeled and digital processors which instantly expand the power of your desktop-based recording studio, for extraordinary processing versatility and soulful analog character.
Not only is each one of these processors amazing on its own, but you can chain up to 16 of them within the T-RackS standalone application, which makes it remarkably easy to audition different effects chains, turn processors on and off, rearrange their order and perform parallel processing by just dragging and dropping them to the desired position. But this is just one of the possibilities. You can open the modules individually as plug-ins, for standard multi-track mixing duties, or use them as "plug-in suite" within your favorite DAW.
All T-RackS 5 plug-ins support 64-bit Audio Units, VST2, VST3, AAX formats and are resizable at will.
In addition to the 22 processors, you will also get the all-new T-RackS 5 professional metering suite, which provides you with immediate and complete visual feedback about the content of your audio material, so you can easily deliver professional results that will satisfy the strictest broadcast compatibility standards. It includes everything from Peak, RMS, Dynamic Range meters, spectrograph, a real-time analyzer, phase correlation meters and much more. The metering section can be even launched as a separate floating window on a second screen, to let you keep an eye on levels while you focus on mixing and mastering.
4 new processors
T-RackS 5, T-RackS Deluxe and our flagship T-RackS MAX collections all include the new "fab four": Master Match, Dyna-Mu, ONE and EQual. Let's take a closer look at these incredible virtual units:
Automatic mastering matching processor
A powerful and clever module that automatically matches the sound of your tracks with up to 3 different source songs used as a reference to let you create great sounding mixes and masters without the need to be an audio engineering guru.
Vari-mu tube compressor
An exacting emulation of a well-known American tube compressor celebrated for its warm sound and vivid colored tone, which is perfectly recreated and indistinguishable from the original hardware. It shines on individual tracks and is perfect as part of any professional mastering chain.
All-in-one mixing and mastering processor
Versatile "all-in-one" processor for easily shaping the sound of your mixes with utmost simplicity and mind-blowing effectiveness. It includes an EQ, compressor, harmonic exciter, low-end enhancer and limiter that will let anyone achieve professional quality results quickly and easily.
10-band precision mastering equalizer with analog curves
10-band, ultra-clear, high-end parametric equalizer with an extremely transparent sound, ultra-precise editing and a vast array of filter shapes that are based on the typical curves of classic British and American analog EQs. This amazingly flexible "hybrid monster" gives you the best of both worlds - digital precision and on-demand analog character that works perfectly for high-end mastering as well as individual tracks.
Deluxe tone, in a DAW or on its own
With T-RackS 5, you have the freedom to optimize your workflow as you please with 3 different working environments. You can use the modules as single plug-ins inside your DAW or under an integrated plug-in suite that can host up to 16 modules at a time and create complex signal chains.
You can, of course, run T-RackS as a standalone application and perform all processing from its resizable interface. Plus, if you own IK’s ARC System, the ARC processing will be seamlessly integrated into the signal chain when you open T-RackS in standalone mode.
Signature presets from the industry's top engineers
Not only have we packed an incredible amount of features in the all-new T-RackS 5, but we have also teamed up with some of the industry's best engineers to provide you with kickin' presets you can use in your productions and that will help you adopt the same approach as the one that defined the sound of these incredibly gifted studio giants. While we cannot guarantee you will be nominated for a Grammy® next year, or win one, we can assure you that the results you will achieve will unquestionably be worth one.
We will keep adding presets on a regular basis, so be sure you know when they are available. Check back regularly and subscribe to our newsletter to stay updated.
