Sunrise, FL (October 31, 2017)—IK Multimedia is now shipping its T-RackS 5 mixing and mastering system for Mac and PC. T-RackS 5 notably offers four new processors for a total of 38 modules; these include a fully redesigned and resizable interface in a 16-processor series/parallel chain. T-Rack5 S is designed to be easy to use while pursuing professional-grade results.
IK also touts T-RackS 5’s “broadcast-ready professional metering section as well as an album assembly section with multi-format export.”
The Master Match module automatically matches the aural characteristics of up to three reference tracks, “using highly sophisticated algorithms and then applies that sound to a user's mix,” offers IK promotional materials. With this proprietary IK module, “it's easy to create great sounding masters without the need for any previous audio engineering experience or specialized skills,” promises IK.
Based on “an iconic American piece of recording hardware,” the new Dyna-Mu vari-mu compressor/limiter is the second new processor for T-RackS 5.
Next, the EQual digital equalizer is a 10-band parametric equalizer “with an extremely transparent sound,” a full-screen resizable interface, and large number of filter shapes “that replicate the typical curves of legendary British and American analog EQs.”
Finally, IK’s new ONE mastering processor has been designed for simple audio finalization and includes an EQ, compressor, analog harmonic exciter, low-end enhancer and limiter “that will let anyone achieve professional quality results in a snap.”
