IK Multimedia TrackS 3 Deluxe has all the tools you need to create superb, tube-toned or digital-tuned, mixes and masters. Its rich, warm sound combines tube-modeled and state-of-the-art digital processors on top of its classic top-notch analog classics. A modular chain gives you full control and easy navigation/compare features. A complete metering section keeps all the most important variables of your sound under control.

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 nothing sounds like T-RackS 3.
5 New T-RackS processors:
-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
-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 Brickwall limiter: Multi-algorithm Brickwall limiter that can really make your masters loud without squashing them
to a lifeless sound (unless you want to).
-High precision, high definition Linear Phase Equalizer: An accurate, high definition, high precision EQ that can be trusted for delicate
Mastering tasks with 6 completely identical bands that can be set to all available filter types, and that can span the whole spectrum range.
4 Classic T-RackS processors:
-Classic T-RackS Compressor, a Classic tube stereo compressor/leveler designed for mastering.
-Classic T-RackS Multi-band Limiter, a Multiband master stereo limiter.
-Classic T-RackS Clipper, a soft-clipping stage to create warm, saturated mastering effects.
-Classic T-RackS Equalizer, a state-of-the-art six band parametric equalizer, modeled on classic top quality analog gear.
Modular mastering/mixing solution with 12 processing slots
New, selectable 12-processor slot audio chain, arranged in two rows of 4 slots for parallel processing plus 4 serial final slots. Modules can be easily switched on/off with a single click, individually or all at once, at any time for quick a/b on the monitored audio, without having to navigate or scroll around.
Single module or global chain visualization options
A "compare" function with volume matching allows comparison between the sound of the processed version and the original, so that you can really judge the sound changes, and not be mislead by a volume increase.
Accurate, complete and truly useful Metering
T-RackS 3 includes a new high quality, high precision, complete metering section. This includes:
-A precision three-scale Peak meter with accurate sample indicators and real digital “Over” indication.
-Real Perceived Loudness meter. This is an amazingly useful meter that is not included on most software processors. It shows the REAL
loudness that will be perceived on your masters. Compare your preferred records with your works on this meter, and you’ll immediately
see where to go with loudness management.
-Phase scope, with options to match the style and indication you’re used to
-Spectrum analyzer with Peak, RMS and Averaging indicators.
-Loudness and RMS metering “optimal” zones’ indication, selectable by genre and style.
