T-RackS 3 Singles - Choose from one of the following Plug Ins:
Vintage Tube Compressor/ Limiter Model 670
Based on the “Holy Grail” of compressor /limiters, the Fairchild 670. This is an incredibly accurate model that delivers a truly magic touch that makes everything that passes through it sound more musical and emotional. Stereo or Lat/Vert (MS) operation.
Vintage Tube Program Equalizer
This model is based upon what is universally known as one of the best and most musical program EQs ever made, the Pultec EQP-1A. It gives you extremely accurate modeling of two real world units, known to have “the sound”, with sonic performance that is indistinguishable from the originals. Stereo or MS operation.
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 only the best opto compressors, and provides total absence of distortion and coloration during gain reduction. Stereo or MS operation.
Multi-algorithm Brickwall limiter that can really make your masters loud without squashing them to a lifeless sound (unless you want that!). Accurate and transparent, digital brickwall limiting doesn’t get any better than this. Selectable algorithms to match the best limiting style for each program type.
Linear Phase Equalizer
An accurate, high definition, high precision EQ that can be trusted for delicate Mastering tasks. Six completely identical bands that can be set to all available filter types and that can span the whole spectrum range. Switchable between minimum and linear phase characteristics. Stereo or MS operation.
This compressor will give you that big, warm sound typical of highly acclaimed hardware devices, and has some unique features that make it very flexible but always very musical and creative. Adds a distinctive touch to bass tracks to sweeten the mix and accentuate without overpowering, plus when used on vocals brings clarity without losing the emotive dynamic range, unlike most digital compressors.
Classic Multi-band Limiter
Now bring dynamic range to your tracks. You control the range on the three separate limiting bands, allowing you complete control over what gets limited and what doesn’t. With proper setting, your tracks will never go beyond -0.05 dBfs, giving you perfect, loud tracks with rich harmonics and unbelievable depth.
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 very often used in mastering because it’s in most cases more transparent than peak limiting , plus it provides more enhanced depth and dynamics to your finished masters while keeping your overall levels in check.
T-RackS Classic Equalizer consists of a high quality six-band parametric EQ, specially designed to achieve high-end sound. Sweeten those vocals to provide just the right balance and emphasis for the ultimate performance; roll off just enough high to get that midrange clarity and emotional response on the guitar; add extra punch on the toms to bring out the true emotional expression from the kit... this is the parametric EQ for you. Stereo or MS operation.
Complete metering suite
This high quality, high precision, complete metering suite includes a precision three-scale Peak meter with accurate sample indicators and real digital “Over” indication, Real Perceived Loudness meter, Phase scope (with options to match the style and indication you’re used to), Phase correlation, Spectrum analyzer with Peak, RMS and Averaging indicators, RMS meter, Loudness and RMS metering “optimal” zones’ indication, selectable by genre and style.
