In addition to being used as a plug-in on individual tracks, all TrackS 3 Deluxe Singles can be integrated into the TrackS 3 Standard as a user’s needs expand. For example, a user who owns Tracks 3 Standard can add the Vintage Compressor 670 module and integrate it into the 12 slots in the series/parallel chain for sophisticated routing and parameter recall.
The IK Multimedia TrackS 3 Single Effects Processor Series makes available the following 10 plug-ins:
-Vintage Tube Compressor/Limiter model 670
Based on the “Holy Grail” of compressor/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. Stereo or Lat/Vert (MS) operation.
-Vintage Tube Program Equalizer
Based on what is universally known as one of the best and most musical program EQs ever made, the Pultec EQP-1A. Extremely accurate
modeling of two real world units, known to have "the sound", with sonic performance that is indistinguishable from the originals, thanks to
IK’s DSM™ and new SCC™ technology. Stereo or MS operation.
Optical compression has a special sonic character that audiophiles can truly appreciate. An important characteristic of optical compression
is the total absence of distortion and coloration during gain reduction, and you can expect the same character and performance from this
digital recreation. Stereo or MS operation.
-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 that!).
Accurate and transparent, digital brickwall limiting doesn’t get any better than this. Selectable algorithms to match the best limiting style
for each program type
-High precision, high definition Linear Phase Equalizer
An accurate, high definition, high precision EQ that can be trusted for delicate Mastering tasks. 6 completely identical bands that can be
set to all available filter types and that can span the whole spectrum range (any kind of overlap is possible). Switchable between minimum
and linear phase characteristics. Stereo or MS operation
-Classic TrackS Compressor
The T-RackS classic tube compressor emulates that classic, analog, hi-end vintage gear used in mastering applications. This will give you
that big, warm sound typical of highly acclaimed hardware devices. This compressor has some unique features that make it very flexible
but always very musical and creative.
-Classic TrackS Multi-band Limiter
This three-band peak limiter can make the mix even louder by reducing unwanted peaks. The peak limiting action is made separately on
the three bands (low, mid, high). You will have a very loud master, without clipping, though as with any of these processors, use care not
to over-do it. Leaving the output knob set to 0 dB means that the limiter output signal can’t go beyond –0.05 dBfs.
-Classic TrackS Clipper
This clipping stage module is useful every time you need to cut out all the peaks that keep the average level of a signal too low. Peak
clipping is very often used in mastering because it's in most cases more transparent than peak limiting.
-Classic TrackS Equalizer
T-RackS Classic Equalizer consists of a high quality six-band parametric EQ, specially designed to achieve high-end performance in a
mastering environment. Classic T-RackS Equalizer can now be used in Stereo or MS modes.
-High quality, high precision, complete metering suite
The new high quality, high precision, complete metering suite includes a precision three-scale Peak meter, Real Perceived Loudness meter,
Phase scope, Phase correlation, Spectrum analyzer with Peak, RMS and Averaging indicators, RMS meter, Loudness and RMS metering
“optimal” zones’ indication, selectable by genre and style.
The TrackS 3 Single Effects Processor Series has all the tools you need to create superb, tube-toned or digital-tuned, mixes and masters on you DAW. Its rich, warm sound combines new tube-modeled and state-of-the-art digital processors on top of its classic top-notch analog classics. The complete metering section keeps all the most important variables of your sound under control. A truly superior set of processors 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. No other plug-in series offers this kind of dedicated environment for such an important task, and nothing sounds like TrackS 3.
