Great-sounding Tools for Mixing and Mastering Your Projects!

The IK Multimedia T-RackS CS Deluxe mastering and mixing software bundle gives you the tools you need to make your projects shine! T-RackS CS Deluxe builds on the legacy of the fantastic T-RackS software, adding five great new processors for a total of 10 incredible mixing and mastering tools! Whether you're looking for clean clarity or rich analog character, this bundle has you covered. You can also tailor your signal chain to run up to 12 processors in parallel or series with the T-RackS CS Deluxe!

IK Multimedia T-RackS CS Deluxe Mastering and Mixing Software at a Glance:
  • Tailor your signal chain
  • Meter with confidence
  • Work in plug-in or standalone mode
  • Get the true sound of classic hardware units
  • Five new tools and four T-RackS classics
Tailor your signal chain

T-RackS CS Deluxe includes a selectable 12-processor-slot audio chain arranged in two rows of four slots for parallel processing plus four serial final slots. Without having to navigate or scroll around, 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. You get single-module or global chain visualization options plus a "compare" function with volume matching that compares the sound of the processed version and the original. This allows you to really judge the sound changes and not be mislead by a volume increase.

Meter with confidence

T-RackS CS Deluxe has a new high quality, high precision complete metering section. You get a precision 3-scale Peak meter with accurate sample indicators and real digital "Over" indication, as well as a Real Perceived Loudness meter. This amazingly useful meter 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. T-RackS also includes a Phase scope (with options to match the style and indication you're used to); Phase correlation; a Spectrum analyzer with Peak, RMS and Averaging indicators; and an RMS meter.

Work in plug-in or standalone mode

The plug-ins fully integrate with all of today's popular DAWs; while standalone mode allows for loading multiple audio files, previews them with all-independent settings, and processes all of them with a single click. Standalone mode includes an extremely high-quality sampling rate conversion to write 44.1kHz CD files, starting from any sampling rate. You get built-in dithering as well. Automation is easy; you can take snapshots within each song and automate processing parameter changes during the song, for example, when passing from verses to choruses, all with a single click. You can also perform non-destructive basic audio editing.

Get the true sound of classic hardware units

IK developed SCC technology to "clone" the true behavior of an analog vintage processor down to its finest level of sonic detail for a faithful reproduction of all its tonal characteristics. This new emulation technology produces results that are indistinguishable from the originals, even for the professionally trained ear.

Many pieces of vintage gear tend to have original and interesting circuit topology, due to the creative solutions that engineers were sometimes forced to put in place to overcome the limitations of components' technology. Vintage components' technology (much of which can't be found anymore because they became obsolete and un-economical) as well as their aging (some of the best sounding devices are 40-50 years old) played fundamental roles in giving these devices a unique musicality that purists would define as "unmatched" by even today's most advanced processors. And finally, many of the unique sonic characteristics of these magnificent vintage units sometimes depended on erratic and unpredictable behavior of their electronics that would be considered unorthodox and unusable by today's science and standards. SCC technology has the ability, through a new analysis method developed by IK, to integrate all of the above and turn it into a mathematical algorithm that, for the first time, is able to take into consideration all of these complex variables and get an exact "clone" of the original. This software emulation evolved to a sound quality never heard before. Sounds so close to the real thing that you'll be hard pressed to tell the difference.

Five new processing tools and four T-RackS classics

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 available.

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 that!).

High precision, high definition Linear Phase Equalizer
An accurate, high definition, high precision EQ that can be trusted for delicate mastering tasks with six completely identical bands that can be set to all available filter types and can span the whole spectrum range.

T-RackS includes the Classic T-RackS Compressor (a classic tube stereo compressor/leveler designed for mastering) and the Classic T-RackS Multi-band Limiter (a multiband master stereo limiter). You also get the Classic T-RackS Clipper (a soft-clipping stage to create warm, saturated mastering effects) and the Classic T-RackS Equalizer (a state-of-the-art 6-band parametric equalizer), which is modeled on classic top-quality analog gear. This EQ can now be used in stereo or MS mode.

T-RackS Deluxe is amazing!

I already had an idea of what T-RackS is capable of since I have used older versions, but when I finally decided to purchase this and got to use it - wow!The manual that accompanies this software teaches you to be a near expert on all of the functions. It was extremely easy to achieve a commercial sounding master! I used to pay other people to master my music at about $125 a pop. After mastering two songs myself with T-RackS and getting the same results, the software has already paid for itself.
5/5

Can't go wrong

There is really nothing bad to say about TR3 CS Deluxe. The presets are just ridiculously good. I use them on all my stereo 'master' tracks after I get my mixes done, and they just work. The fact that you can use in standalone and do a bit of "in the box" mastering and reference editing on the fly is very nice. If you're looking for a set of plug-ins to help on individual tracks or to spice up your master track, this is a great "bang for the buck" deal.

T Rex kicks butt

The more I use these the more I like them. I use them on individual tracks as well as now use them for mastering. They make the vocals sounds fat and thick, drums punchy, bass sings and that mix comes to life with these great tools. I have a thousand plug ins and I use these more and more. I wish I could afford the real thing but I couldn't afford one for every channel.
