T-RackS RTAS plug-in for Pro Tools™ has everything you need to create superb, tube-toned masters on your desktop.
  • MacMall Part #: 643271 
  • Manufacturer Part #: TR-PLUGIN  
  • UPC: 025813055032 
  • Platform: Macintosh 

Its rich, warm sound starts with algorithms based on true analog circuitry. Its familiar interface makes it easy to control five powerful processors: EQ, compressor, limiter, soft-clipping output stage, and a complete mastering suite. Enhances mix frequencies, stereo images, dynamic range and gives your audio a seamless, top notch sound.
T-RackS® plug-in for Pro Tools includes:
.a state-of-the-art EQ
.a classic tube modeled compressor
.a multi band master limiter
.a soft-clipping stage
.a complete mastering suite containing all the plugs in one efficient, "gold sounding" mastering plug-in built with actual physical models of tube circuitry.
With its separate processors, astonishing warmth and ease-of-use, you'll be putting a polish on your tracks you may have never thought possible. All this, while adding the beautiful warmth and space of the tube devices it emulates. No other plug-in offers this kind of dedicated environment for such an important task and none sounds like T-RackS®.
.5 sound processors: with its great sounding, analog-modeled Equalizer, Compressor, Limiter and the Soft-clipping output stage, T-RackS® includes everything you need to create final masters on your Pro Tools®.
.Specially Developed for Mastering: no other single software processor sounds like T-RackS® and none make mastering so easy. It can vastly enhance mix frequencies, broaden the stereo image as well as boost or precisely level the dynamic range. All this, while adding the beautiful warmth and space of the tube-devices it emulates.
.Outstanding "Analog-Modeled" Sound: T-RackS®' astonishing sound is created with algorithms based on real analog circuitry. This is what makes T-RackS® sound so similar to real analog audio hardware, and so unique when compared to other software. Click here to see what user say about T-RackS' unique sound.
.High Order 32 bit Internal Resolution: with 32 Bit floating point resolution, T-RackS® uses the best possible method to physically model analog components, resulting in an amazingly real tube sound. Only without the noise!
.High Productivity, Ease of Use: not only does it sound analog, it acts analog! T-RackS® is so easy to use because its interface resembles a typical rack of hardware with analog controls.
.Superior Quality: T-RackS® has the best quality-to-price ratio of any top-selling sound processor, is an incredible value and is an indispensable mastering tool for any studio, be it pro or project.
Apart of the new availability of separate modules, the new T-RackS® Plug In contains other monstrous improvements, compared to the stand-alone version, including:
1) New full band sweepable mid bands on the Equalizer
Both the peaking filters can now cover the entire 20 – 20KHz audio spectrum. 2) Refined high-end response
Now the T-RackS equalizer is even more musical and transparent at the top end, the T-RackS Eq now has that characteristic smooth high end, typical of those acclaimed analog devices.
3) Sidechain HPF in the compressor signal detecting chain
This adds an high pass filter in the detector stage of the compressor. The detector stage is where the compressor analyzes the incoming signal and determines how gain reduction must be applied. This variable high pass filter prevents, when turned up, that "compression pumping", mainly caused by the program low end content. The further this knob is turned the the softer and more innaudible the compression character will be. At the minimum or at very low settings the compression will be much more aggressive and noticeable.
Use lower settings when you want to “hear” the compression effect and use higher values for a gentle compression, as you may want in acoustic mixes. 4) Individual limiter bands controls
Now all the three limiter bands low, mid, and high are individually adjustable for threshold and level. This allows the user, for example, to limit the program low end without applying unwanted compression to the midrange.
5) Adjustable multiband limiter crossover points
Now the user can modify the two split points of the bands. 6) High precision calibration of the limiter and clipper output
If the output knob of the limiter is at 0 dB (default) the output of the limiter will never go beyond –0.05 dBfs.
You can just squeeze the drive knob until you hear too much distortion or limiting and can be sure that the output is at the industry mastering standard level of –0.05 dBfs, without overs.
The same is for the Soft clipper.
.State-of-the-art six band parametric equalizer, modeled on classic top quality analog gear
