High-end DAW mastering and mixing suite featuring 9 processors.

IK Multimedia T-RackS 3 Deluxe is a DAW mastering and mixing software package consisting of 9 analog-modeled and digital Dynamics/EQ processors. Able to work as a standalone application or plug-in,depending on your needs, T-RackW 3 has all the tools you need to create superb, tube-toned or digital-tuned, mixes and masters. Its rich, warm sound combines new tube-modeled and state-of-the-art digital processors on top of its top-notch analog classics. An added modular chain gives you full control and easy navigation/compare features. T-Racks 3 Deluxe features new complete metering section keeps all the most important variables of your sound under control. A truly superior mastering and mixing system that will put 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.

Note: All current owners of T-RackS 3 Deluxe suites also have access to the individual modules (included in the package they purchased) as a FREE download from their IK user area. This allows you to open the individual processors without opening the entire suite, making it more streamlined to use while saving CPU resources.

What you get:
Vintage Tube Compressor/Limiter model 670
This model is based on the "Holy Grail" of compressors/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.

Vintage Tube Program Equalizer

This model is based on what is universally known as one of the best and most musical program EQs ever made, the Pultec EQP-1A.

Opto compressor
Optical compression has a special sonic character that audiophiles can truly appreciate.

Intelligent, multi-algorithm Brick wall limiter
The Multi-algorithm Brickwall limiter can really make your masters loud without squashing them to a lifeless sound, unless, of course, that's the sound you're going for.

High precision, high definition Linear Phase Equalizer
This accurate, high-definition, high-precision EQ can be trusted for delicate mastering tasks with 6 completely identical bands that can be set to all available filter types, and can span the whole spectrum range.

T-RackS 3 also comes with these four Classic T-RackS processors:
¢Compressor: a classic tube stereo compressor/leveler designed for mastering.
¢Multi-band Limiter: a Multiband stereo mastering limiter.
¢Clipper: a soft-clipping stage to create warm, saturated mastering effects.
¢Equalizer: a state-of-the-art, 6-band parametric equalizer, modeled on classic top quality analog gear.

IK's breakthrough SCC (Sonic Character Cloning) technology:
SCC has been developed to "clone" the true behavior of an analog vintage processor down to its finest level of sonic detail for a faithful reproduction of all its tonal characteristics. This emulation technology produces results that are indistinguishable from the originals, even for the professionally trained ear.

Many pieces of vintage gear tend to have original and interesting circuit topology, due to the creative solutions that engineers were sometimes forced to put into place in order to overcome the limitations of components' technology. Vintage components' technology (many of which can't be found anymore because their technology became obsolete and un-economical) as well as their aging (some of the best sounding devices are 40-50 years old) played fundamental roles in giving these devices a unique musicality that is what the purist would define to be "the unmatched" by even the most advanced processors today. And finally, many of the unique sonic characteristics of these magnificent vintage units sometimes depended on erratic and unpredictable behavior of their electronics that would be considered unorthodox and unusable by today's science and standards.

SCC technology has the ability, through a new analysis method developed by IK, to integrate all of the above and turn it into a mathematical algorithm that, for the first time, is able to take into consideration all of these complex variables and get an exact "clone" of the original. This is software emulation evolved to a sound quality never heard before. Sounds so close to the real thing that you won't be able to tell the difference.

Makea real difference to your recordings.

Comments about IK Multimedia T-RackS 3 Deluxe:

Mastering is like tuning up your car. With a little knowledge and some decent tools you could change your cars spark plugs, put in a new gas filter, change your oil and oil filter and do a few other basic things and your car will run better, but a real trained auto mechanic will do a dozen other things that you can't do without specialized knowledge and expensive equipment that will make your car run great. Mastering a recording is allot like tuning up your car. If you own a really good compressor, a limiter, a good high end EQ and other essentials and have the knowledge to use them properly, you could do a half decent mastering job your recordings. I thought I was doing ok until I was introduced to T Racks. I went to a recording seminar with a well known engineer/producer a few months ago. When it came time to delve into mastering, he highly recommended T Racks. I went home and tried a free demo version and immediately bought this program. T Racks has all you need to master recordings to the highest standards. Your old recordings will come alive and jump out of your monitors. The software is very easy to use (if you understand the basics of compression, limiting and parametric EQ) but best of all even if you don't have that knowledge there are pre-sets that are already in the T Racks software that are awesome. Just open T Racks and "drag and drop" one of your recordings into it, pick one of the mastering pre-sets and listen. You'll be blown away. I usually start with a T Racks pre-set that comes close to what I want and then tweak it a little for the needs of the recording. After you are done you can save your custom settings by renaming them. After a few short months I have a number of my own pre-sets that work great. You can also set up three different setting on tab A, B and C that are on the T Racks interface and just click between them as the song plays to see which one works the best for that recording. I rated the software 4.0 on value. It's not cheap, but it is cheaper than some other mastering softwares. As an example, I bought Adobe Audition about two years ago which sells for about the same price as T Racks. I have struggled with the learning curve for Adobe Audition and found that I spent too much time playing with the software and getting frustrated. T Racks interface looks like the clasic equipment of old. Just bring up a compressor or an EQ and use your mouse to move the knobs on the screen. The software is very sensitive and unlike other digital software very small movements will make a big difference. All I can say in closing is go to the T Racks (IK Multimedia) web site and download the trial software. It is a fully functioning software (it will expire in a few days). You'll see what I am raving on about.

    Comments about IK Multimedia T-RackS 3 Deluxe:

    the program works fine. it's similar izotope. the problem is that the authorization is a nightmare. too much hassle. I've downloaded the authorization manager at least a dozen times, authorized the program and keeps asking me for authorization again. it's been such a headache and i'm ditching the whole software. support isn't all that helpful.

    It will get you by!

    Comments about IK Multimedia T-RackS 3 Deluxe:

    It has a nice look to it. I have used many mastering plugins before and this one is not totally Pro but you can get a Pro sound from it if you use an exciter (Aphex 204). This is a must have I would say go get it. My suggestion to IK Multimedia is get some other plugin to brighten the sound and this software will be the boss.
