IK Multimedia T-RackS Grand Upgrade from Deluxe
T-RackS Grand is a comprehensive, high-quality mixing and mastering plug-in suite that provides a versatile set of sonic tools for sculpting individual tracks and full mixes. The package includes T-RackS Classic and digital modules, spot-on vintage gear emulations, and the Quad series of mastering-quality multiband processors.
Whatever kind of music you're producing, the power, precision and variety of T-RackS Grand give you the tools you need to make your music stand out from the competition. What's more, our new Custom Shop feature lets you purchase additional modules at your discretion, such as our Classik Studio Reverb collection, or the four most recent processors we added: Precision Compressor/Limiter, an iconic compressor based on the legendary design from a British manufacturer; Bus Compressor, a classic master bus compressor; White Channel, an emulation of the EQ and dynamics from a channel strip on a popular British console; and Tape Echo, which reproduces the sound of the most famous tape echo unit of all time.
Five high-quality, precision processors highlight T-RackS Grand. Four belong to the IK Multimedia multiband Quad Series: Quad Comp, Quad Lim, Quad Image and De-Esser. These intuitively designed units let you split the signal into a maximum of four user-adjustable frequency bands (3 for the De-Esser) that can be processed individually, giving you surgical control over your audio.
Quad Comp and Quad Lim can operate in either stereo or M/S mode, providing additional flexibility to zero in on a very narrow part of your audio. Quad Image lets you precisely adjust the stereo image, and De-Esser gives you three separate frequency bands of de-essing power, enough to tame the most vexing sibilance.
The fifth new processor is British Channel, which is a spot-on emulation of a channel strip on one of the famous mixing consoles of all time. Use it to imbue your music with the sound that's on thousands of hit songs. You get 4-band parametric EQ, plus high- and low-pass filters, and the dynamics section includes a VCA-type compressor and an independent Expander/Gate section. British Channel brings the sound of a large-format analog console to your studio.
Vintage, modern, and more
The modules in T-RackS Grand let you process your sound in myriad ways. Want to add a vintage tube vibe? Use the Fairchild670 compressor or the Pultec EQP-1A tube program equalizer. Want to level out a vocal performance? Use Black 76 or White 2A, emulations of classic processors, which were recently updated to be even more accurate. Want precision processing of specific parts of the frequency spectrum? Use one of the Quad Series processors.
Future-proof your studio with Custom Shop
The Custom Shop feature is one of the most exciting aspects of the new T-RackS. It's built into the DNA of the software, and it lets you add additional modules from the ever-growing IK Multimedia collection, and purchase them from within the T-RackS application. It's like having a cool store for high-end outboard gear right on your desktop - and it's always open!
With new modules being added regularly, you'll be able to get the new gear you want, when you want it, and keep your T-RackS collection future-proofed. What's more, the Custom Shop's "Try Before You Buy" feature lets you download fully functioning modules for three days to audition them.
Gorgeous tone, in a DAW or on its own
You can open T-RackS modules as single plug-ins inside your DAW, or under an integrated plug-in shell that can host up to 12 modules at a time in 8 plug-in slots, and create complex signal chains. If you'd prefer, you can run T-RackS as a standalone application. If you have IK's ARC System 2, when you open T-RackS in standalone mode, the ARC processing will be seamlessly integrated into the signal chain.
