audioMIDI no-brainer deal: T-RackS 3 Vintage Tube Compressor/Limiter model 670

IK Multimedia T-RackS 3 Singles has launched a no-brainer deal for the Vintage Tube Compressor/Limiter model 670, a from the T-RackS 3 single module compressor series by IK Multimedia.

Based on the “Holy Grail” of compressor/limiters, the Fairchild® 670. With a faithful reproduction of every control, this is an incredibly accurate model that captures every nuance of one of the best Fairchild units available.

The original unit delivers a truly magic touch that makes everything that passes through it shine and sound more musical and emotional, and was analyzed for months for every single detail to unveil all of its secrets.

IK’s unique analog-modeling experience and exclusive DSM™ (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) technology push this model to the limit and beyond, so we developed a new custom, proprietary method dubbed SCC™ (Sonic Character Cloning) – with results that can only be described as magic! It took us a very long time, but we believe it was well worth the effort, and you’ll be the one who says that this is the only 670 digital recreation that actually treats music like the original.
