Just testing out IK Multimedia's new T-racks 5.3 with
the new Sunset Sound Studio Reverb. Gui works great in
Ubuntu Studio 19.10, with nVidia pcie card, and
nVidia's official driver.
This product has great sound, is versatile,
easy to use, and takes well to feeding
rythmic plugins, or being fed from your audio kitchen.
The interface lets you mix and match among the studios
locations and gear, as if you were running long patch cables
IK have been working with the Sunset Studio
to wedgie it's rooms, ambiences, and gear, into a handy interface, that has enough controls, presets and visual aids,
to help the user get that Studio's legendary sounds,
without getting bogged down in minutia.
I have a linux setup for Kontakt, which is set in Reaper
to use just 1 core for audio processing.
It's a 3.4 ghz i7 core, and using SSSR, and I never noticed
any big cpu hit, 10-20% less than a basic Kontakt with 3 or 4 sounds.
I have a Fender GT modeling amp, which among the
120 sounds, has several where a high-gain monster mash
is on the dial next to a super clean tone, for easy A/B hearings.
For my guitar testing, I settled in
Studio Live Room 2
using reverb Plate Spring/Plate 1
One of many sweet spots I discovered
Because T-racks installer loads the whole catalog of
T-Racks plugins, I install them in a folder not part of the
usual vst paths, so they don't mingle with the T-racks
plugins I own, forcing a squint or three when
selecting among them.
I'm using kernel 5.3 low latency pre-empt, wine-staging 5.2, Reaper 5.9, with recent versions of LinVst plugin wrapper,
and qjackctl. To the extent that time is money, this product
could be a great investment towards finished productions
that will fit the sonic mold of a great so-cal studio.
I think the $150 intro price is good for a while, allowing
thorough testing. The demo runs 10 days without limits,
but each time the gui appears, you are offered a dialogue
to open the Authorization manager, or not.
