Wave Arts Trackplug AAX
TrackPlug 5 is our most popular plug-in, an all-in-one channel strip which features a 10-band EQ, brickwall filters, spectrum analyzer, dual multi-mode compressors, gate/expander, extensive sidechain options, and a peak limiter. It also boasts Wave Arts’ outstanding sound quality and impressive CPU efficiency.
TrackPlug’s interface has been meticulously designed for visual clarity and ease of use. For example, the EQ interface lets you add a new EQ band by double-clicking, then you drag the control point to change frequency and height, right-click (shift-click on Mac) to change width. Right-clicking on a meter or display axis gives a popup menu of display ranges. Right-click a knob drag to get fine tune adjustment, double-click a knob to revert to default value. And so on.
Our preset manager lets you A/B compare two different presets or undo the last change. TrackPlug also features preset managers per section so for example you can quickly combine an EQ preset with a compressor preset. Super handy.
Like all Wave Arts’ plugs, TrackPlug only consumes CPU for features that are enabled, so if you just need a few bands of EQ and some compression, TrackPlug has a negligible CPU load. Even with everything turned on, TrackPlug is very light on CPU. We’ve had users report using over 100 TrackPlugs in a single project.
The applications for TrackPlug are virtually endless: shape the tone of an instrument, fix sonic problems, bring dynamics under control, clean up noise problems, add some punch or vintage warmth to a track, de-ess a vocal track, and much more… The outstanding user interface puts the power of TrackPlug under your control.

Wave Arts plug-ins are not standalone applications, instead they “plug-in” to a host audio editor application. You must run an audio editor or workstation application such as Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Sonar, Ableton Live, Sound Forge, Audition, Samplitude, Nuendo, WaveLab, Digital Performer, Studio One, etc. (there are a lot of choices). Wave Arts plug-ins support many plug-in formats, on Mac OS we support VST, AU, AAX, RTAS, AS, and MAS formats and on Windows we support VST, DX, AAX, RTAS, and AS formats.
The entire plug-in lineup now works in Avid’s AAX format! All plug-ins now support AAX Native operation while TrackPlug, MultiDynamics and FinalPlug also run on HDX DSP cards
