Your One-stop Mixing and Mastering Software Suite!

With the IK Multimedia T-RackS CS Grand mastering suite, you've got everything you need to perfect your projects, plus 16 processors that you can also use as individual plug-ins while you're mixing your project. And we're talking about some of the most accurate emulations of vintage audio processors, such as the Fairchild 670 comp/limiter and the Pultec EQP-1A EQ. And for precise mastering, T-RackS CS Grand gives you a built-in metering suite including Peak, Real Perceived Loudness, RMS, Phase Correlation, Phase Scope, and Spectrum Analyzer. For top-notch audio, treat it with the IK Multimedia T-RackS CS Grand mastering suite.

IK Multimedia T-RackS CS Grand Mastering Suite at a Glance:
  • Even more vintage-emulated processors than before
  • Mix your project with individual plug-ins and master your song in standalone mode
  • Analyze your mix with precise metering
Even more vintage-emulated processors than before

With T-RackS CS Grand, you get even more processors based on classic studio gear. For example, the Black 76 limiter and the White 2A leveling amplifier are perfect for adding character to individual tracks as well as busses. And the new British Channel Strip replicates the sound of one of the most famous vintage mixing consoles, which is perfect for virtually any mixing task.

Mix your project with individual plug-ins and master your song in standalone mode

You can't beat the value in IK Multimedia's T-RackS CS Grand mastering suite, because you can use all the individual processors as plug-ins within your DAW choice. So you can use the Black 76 limiter to make your drums slam, use the White 2A leveling amp to perfect your vocal tracks, and use all the other modules to make your tracks shine. When you're ready to master, the comprehensive standalone mode gives you access to high-quality metering, signal chain comparisons, and much more.

Analyze your mix with precise metering

T-RackS CS Grand includes a 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. You also get 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.

IK Multimedia T-RackS CS Grand Mastering Suite Features:
  • Standalone mastering software with 16 EQ/Dynamics/Imaging processors
  • Individual processors can be used as plug-in processors in your favorite DAW
  • ARC 2 crossover features lets you use IK Multimedia ARC 2 monitor processing within T-RackS standalone mode
  • Spot-on emulations of classic vintage gear, such as the Fairchild 670 limiter and the Pultec EQP-1A equalizer

From first notes to final mastering, you're covered with IK Multimedia T-RackS CS Grand!

Don't pass this up

Everyone swears by the Waves plugins, but this suite of virtual rack gear is like having Waves on the cheap.I'm using my bud's Mac based Pro Tools rig to record and produce a friend's album, and was getting okay results with the stock stuff, but it was sounding too generic, and in particular, the Digi compressor and EQ just wasn't cutting it on drums. I can't use the Waves software because the Mac is still on Snow Leopard, and moving up in the OSX food chain would require PT 10 or 11, and he doesn't want to spend that much money or hassle just yet. So I went ahead and bought the Grand Software Suite myself, and suddenly the mixes came to life. The T-RackS compressors and EQs are nicely detailed and different from each other, and the vintage modeled units make the impact I wanted. To make the deal even sweeter, the presets work great, and only need a tweak here and there to suit individual tracks. The client is ecstatic over the sound I'm getting for him.To round out the deal, I also bought the Slate Digital Virtual bundle with console strips, three more compressors and a tape emulator, and they make a great tag team. But the T-RackS stuff is so good, I'm getting more when money allows. Even if you have Waves, Izotope, Sonnox or one of the other software suites, you owe it to yourself to download the 14 day trials of these guys, or just fuggedabout it and get them.

Installation Hit'n Miss

I was pulling my hair out trying to use the Authorization Manager. In order to do a proper authorization in the manager, the Authorization Manager must be run on an Admin Account in Windows not Standard, and the Authorization Manager must be run as an Administrator on the Administrator account in order to complete the ownership of the IK Multimedia T-RackS Grand Software Suite. (Mouthful for no reason.) Pro's: I love the plug-ins very good quality and I go to IK first for my masters. Con's: Just that I don't like the way IK tries to boost sales with that awful plug-in app. IK tip for IK: Ditch the awful Activation Management!

Must Get

This is a must get if you're on a budget and want a great mix/mastering suite. Like I said on previous reviews, I think it's an awesome alternative to WAVES. You get 16 mixing/mastering plugins. They meticulously emulate well sought after vintage gear. I call it drool fest in a nice package.Keep up the good work IK Multimedia and Sweewater for offering flexible payment options.

Blown Away

This is a great alternative to Waves plugins, and some of these were put side by side, and stood on their own. I'm very happy with my purchase. I love the replication of the 1176, Poltech, LA2A, and the Fairchild compressor. Now, go buy it!
