IK Multimedia has announced the release of a new T-RackS Custom Shop update including the "holy grail" of mastering EQs, Master EQ 432. This update adds a software version of the "gold standard" of mastering EQs, plus multiple enhancements of the T-RackS Custom Shop environment aimed at streamlining its usability for both previous and new users.
T-RackS Custom Shop 4.5 offers a unique mixing and mastering shell system that allows the user to have up to 26 of the world's most sought-after outboard processors all available in one product for your DAW or desktop, both singularly or together.
IK are introducing a brand new module to the T-RackS family. They say that this module is based on what is considered to be the "golden reference," the absolute standard in mastering equalizers. The fully parametric and totally independent bands have almost no interaction, and the unit's success derived from its no-compromise quality level, based on discrete high-performance custom op-amps and a totally transformer-less signal path that made for transparent and pristine audio quality. What's more, some digital-world handy features like total recall, full automation, and switchable gain ranges, originally available as three different hardware versions, are all now included in this single model.
Multiple Custom Shop Enhancements
Additional enhancements are included in the latest Custom Shop update, T-RackS CS 4.5, providing even more options to purchase T-RackS mixing and mastering audio processors right from your DAW or mastering station. New users of T-RackS CS 4.5 will experience a single installation process for all of the available modules that installs every available T-RackS processor into the DAW at the same time. This provides immediate access to all of the individual T-RackS processors from the plug-in selection area in the DAW channel strips, plus immediate access to all of the individual processors in the T-RackS Mastering chain plug-in.
New and improved "Try before you buy"
Because the modules are immediately available within the DAW channel strip, you can choose to demo the processor or purchase it direct, with just a few clicks. Also, to allow time to completely evaluate the intricate workings, nuance and sonic characteristics of the modules, IK has decided to greatly expand the amount of time you can choose to demo the processors, now a full 14 days. When ready to purchase, simply click the "Custom Shop" button in the bottom right corner of the processor to launch the T-RackS Custom Shop purchase system.
