IK Mul­ti­me­dia T-RackS 5 Cus­tom Shop Free – €180

Future Music - - ROUND-UP -

T-RackS [some­how pro­nounced ‘Tracks’] is a mix­ing and mas­ter­ing work­sta­tion with a se­lec­tion of pro­ces­sors to get the job done in al­most any sit­u­a­tion. With a se­lec­tion of ver­sions from the free ‘Cus­tom Shop’ edi­tion (ex­tra mod­ules are paid up­grades), through the stan­dard, Deluxe and MAX pack­ages, you can choose your tool­kit based on your bud­get.

To add to the rack, you can get em­u­lated chan­nel strips, re­verbs, de­lays, EQs, com­pres­sors and lim­iters, each with its own pro­cess­ing bent for spe­cialty pro­cess­ing – creative, mu­si­cally rich ef­fects for mix­ing, against clean, pre­cise tools for mas­ter­ing. The plugin host is cus­tom-re­siz­able, there’s pretty com­pre­hen­sive me­ter­ing, A/B/C/D vari­a­tions, and plenty of pre­sets. Rout­ing can be done in se­rial or par­al­lel, although you can only view one ef­fect’s con­trols at a time.

At the end of the chain is the Master Match mod­ule, which helps you ref­er­ence other sources and bring your ma­te­rial up to scratch with them. You can also use T-RackS stand­alone as a mas­ter­ing ed­i­tor, try­ing dif­fer­ent chains for dif­fer­ent au­dio clips. These use­ful ad­di­tions make T-RackS a great can­di­date for am­a­teur or pro mas­ter­ing set­ups. ik­mul­ti­me­dia.com VER­DICT 9.1
