IK Multimedia launches T-RackS Custom Shop mixing & mastering suite
IK Multimedia has announced the launch of the T-RackS Custom Shop, the updated version 4.0 of its world-class mixing and mastering suite for Mac and PC.
Now T-RackS is even more powerful, with the new Custom Shop feature, which was originally introduced in our AmpliTube software. Custom Shop opens from within T-RackS, and lets you browse, audition, and purchase any processor in the T-RackS collection. It’s like having a really cool vintage and cutting edge modern digital gear shop at your fingertips, 24/7.
On top of this, five new processors have been added to the T-RackS lineup, including the Quad Series of precision multiband units, and the British Channel, a meticulous emulation of the channel strip from a classic mixing desk. Black 76 and White 2A, vintage dynamics processors have been updated to make them even more authentic and hardware-like sounding.
T-RackS CS Bundle Collections
- Classic – formerly T-RackS Standard, it includes the four original T-RackS processors: Classic Compressor, Classic Multi-band Limiter, Classic Clipper and Classic Equalizer, plus the metering suite.
- Deluxe – includes everything in T-RackS CS Classic, plus Vintage Tube Compressor/Limiter Model 670, Vintage Tube Program Equalizer, Opto Compressor, Brickwall Limiter, and Linear Phase Equalizer.
- Grand – includes everything in T-RackS CS Deluxe, plus seven additional processors: Quad Comp, Quad Limit, Quad Image, De-Esser, British Channel, Black 76 and White 2A. It provides the full collection of 16 T-RackS processors, featuring all the new modules released so far (not including CSR).
