IK ships T RackS 3
IK Multimedia has begun shipping its latest mixing and mastering software suite, T-RackS 3. The software combines digital signal processors with models of analog, tube-toned equipment. A Fairchild 670 compressor emulator has been added, along with a vintage tube equalizer, optical compressor, multi-algorithm brickwall limiter, and linear phase equalizer. The effects can be chained, with support for up to 12 items in parallel or series configurations.
A metering section allows users to monitor peak, perceived loudness, phase, and RMS levels. The software works with Windows or Mac systems, and can be used standalone or as an AU, VST, or RTAS plug-in for DAWs. T-RackS 3 is now shipping, with a price of $500 for the Deluxe version that includes the new processors, or $300 for the crossgrade version.
