Add Classic Warmth and Modern Sheen with 9 Mastering Effects!

The ultimate processing suite for digital musicians, IK Multimedia T-RackS 3 Deluxe puts 9 mixing and mastering must-haves at your fingertips, including optical compression, program EQ, multiband stereo limiters, and more. Style-based presets make T-RackS inviting for the beginner, while its high-fidelity processing will suit even the most demanding professional.

T-RackS 3 Deluxe gives you 9 plug-in processors for your DAW -- or, you can run T-RackS 3 as standalone software, stacking up the modules in a custom rack just for mastering.

9 Must-Have Mastering Tools

Say hello to a sweet lineup of processors you can use as plug-ins in any major native DAW. So that you get the most realistic software emulation of vintage gear, T-RackS employs SCC technology coupled with IK's unique DSM technology.

- Vintage Tube Compressor/Limiter model 670: Based on the legendary Fairchild 670 compressors/limiter, the Vintage Tube Compressor/Limiter model 670 processor is a faithful reproduction of the original unit, modeling every control, tone, and output of that classic Fairchild.

- Vintage Tube Program Equalizer: Dial in incredible top-end air and rich low-end punch with the Vintage Tube Program Equalizer. This EQ plug-in models the Pultec EQP-1A, arguably one of the best and most musical program equalizers ever made.

- Opto Compressor, Brickwall Limiter, and Linear Phase Equalizer: T-RackS' Opto compressor lets your sonic material sound larger than life, and the intelligent, multi-algorithm Brickwall limiter guarantees to make your masters really loud without squashing them to a lifeless sound. When you need an accurate, high-definition EQ for your mastering tasks, turn to Linear Phase Equalizer, which has six completely identical bands that can be set to all available filter types, and that can span the whole spectrum range.

- Plus, Four Classic T-RackS Processors:Rounding out T-RackS are four tried-and-true processors: Classic T-RackS Compressor, a classic tube stereo compressor/leveler meant for mastering; Classic T-RackS Multi-band Limiter, a multiband master stereo limiter; Classic T-RackS Clipper, a soft-clipping stage to create warm, saturated mastering effects; and Classic T-RackS Equalizer, a 6-band parametric EQ modeled on high-end analog gear.

Stand-Alone Mode: Your Dedicated Mastering Suite

In standalone mode, T-RackS' modular chain lets you call the shots and control the processors completely, and easy navigation and compare features make it a cinch to find your way around the software.

A configurable mastering/mixing chain lets you run up to 12 processors in parallel or series, while a built-in metering section always lets you know what's up with your levels, thanks to its easily viewable Peak, Perceived Loudness, Phase, and RMS meters. A dedicated spectrum analyzer offers Peak, RMS, and Averaging indicators as well. Yay for high-fidelity oversampling with clear transparency -- with these T-RackS effects, you'll also enjoy high-quality audio processing throughout the entire signal path.

You can take the time to get to know each effect thoroughly, or you can get in there and go with T-RackS' easy-to-use style-based presets. Either way, T-RackS will have you polishing your tracks quickly and easily, with its other intuitive tools and features, like full chain visualization, one-click single module or chain bypass, a handy compare function, multiple audio processing in standalone mode, and more.

Features:

- Mastering software for use in standalone mode, or as a suite of DAW plug-ins, supporting AU, VST, RTAS plug-in formats
- 9 analog-modeled and digital dynamics/EQ processors, including models based on the Fairchild 670 and Pultec EQP-1A
- 5 T-RackS processors: Vintage Tube Compressor/Limiter model 670, Vintage Tube Program Equalizer, Opto compressor, Brickwall limiter, and Linear Phase Equalizer
