4 new processors - the family just got bigger
Not only have all the plugins been redesigned and adapted to take advantage of the full processing power of the new audio engine and the new sleek, zoomable GUI, but we also created 4 new incredible processors that we know you will love.
In T-RackS 5 now you have up to 38 incredible modules to choose from to build your perfect studio setup.
Automatic mastering matching processor
A powerful and clever module that automatically matches the sound of your tracks with up to 3 different source songs used as a reference to let you create great sounding mixes and masters without the need to be an audio engineering guru.
Vari-mu tube compressor
An exacting emulation of a well-known American tube compressor celebrated for its warm sound and vivid colored tone, which is perfectly recreated and indistinguishable from the original hardware. It shines on individual tracks and is perfect as part of any professional mastering chain.
All-in-one mixing and mastering processor
Versatile “all-in-one” processor for easily shaping the sound of your mixes with utmost simplicity and mind-blowing effectiveness. It includes an EQ, compressor, harmonic exciter, low-end enhancer and limiter that will let anyone achieve professional quality results quickly and easily.
10-band precision mastering equalizer with analog curves
10-band, ultra-clear, high-end parametric equalizer with an extremely transparent sound, ultra-precise editing and a vast array of filter shapes that are based on the typical curves of classic British and American analog EQs. This amazingly flexible “hybrid monster” gives you the best of both worlds – digital precision and on-demand analog character that works perfectly for high-end mastering as well as individual tracks.
Deluxe tone, in a DAW or on its own
With T-RackS 5, you have the freedom to optimize your workflow as you please with 3 different working environments. You can use the modules as single plug-ins inside your DAW or under an integrated plug-in suite that can host up to 16 modules at a time and create complex signal chains.
You can, of course, run T-RackS as a standalone application and perform all processing from its resizable interface. Plus, if you own IK’s ARC System, the ARC processing will be seamlessly integrated into the signal chain when you open T-RackS in standalone mode.

But this is just one of the possibilities. You can open the modules individually as plug-ins, for standard multi-track mixing duties, or use them as “plug-in suite” within your favorite DAW.
All T-RackS 5 plug-ins support 64-bit Audio Units, VST2, VST3, AAX formats and are resizable at will.
