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.
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.
In addition to the 22 processors, you will also get the 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.
Metering 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.
In T-RackS 5 v2 you now can sequence and assemble your full-length production directly within the interface and create a cohesive album sequence, with suitable track metadata, like pauses, fades, track ID’s, ISRC codes, CD-Text, etc. Then you can export single high-quality master audio files or the whole project in various formats such as WAV, AIF, standard DDP image for professional replication plants, or Wav Cue files.
It’s fast, it’s intuitive, and most importantly, it brings back the fun of sequencing an album that, despite being considered by many as a tedious activity, is indeed a true art form and one of the most emotional aspects of creating a full music experience.
We made T-RackS 5 more sonically powerful than ever. Now projects are supported with audio up to 192 kHz / 32-bit floating point, so you can master for high-definition music platforms and distribution without ever leaving its single interface.
Plus, we added 4 dithering options for you to choose from, meaning you can optimize the dithering noise when reducing the bit-depth of your tracks to match the actual content of the song.
On top of that, T-RackS internal resampling engine has also been improved to deliver nothing less than best-in-class performance including DDM (Digital Delivery Mastering) on the way out from the final limiting stage, offering an additional layer of protection against inter-sample peaks and overshoots that could be generated by MP3, AAC encoding or similar compression and decompression processes.
Not only have we packed an incredible number of features in the all-new T-RackS 5, but we have also teamed up with some of the industry's most innovative 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.
