Trackspacer is an award-nominated plug-in that creates space in a mix by carving the frequencies that the main track needs into another track in real time. Trackspacer is no ordinary plug-in, it is similar to a sidechain compressor plug-in but much more powerful and transparent. It's considered a secret mixing weapon by many artists, producers, and engineers.
TapeOp said "I would call this a secret-weapon plug-in, but the word is hereby out! TrackSpacer is a ridiculously affordable, easy way to get various elements of your mix to interact in useful and musical ways... Final words: buy it! It works!"
The Trackspacer plug-in features a 32 band EQ that reacts to the incoming sidechain signal. It analyses the spectrum of the sidechain and applies a reversed EQ curve to another track. As if by magic, Trackspacer creates space for the primary track by cutting the exact frequencies on other tracks. No more fighting for space for the vocal in a mix, or any other instrument for that matter. If you have a solo that needs to room to breathe then Trackspacer makes the task easy – complicated automation moves on your mix are a thing of the past.
With the introduction of version 2.0 the Trackspacer plug-in got a host of improvements.
Introducing M/S or L/R modes now you can apply the effect only to the mid-channel, the sides or anything in between. With the attack and release controls, you can set how Trackspacer reacts to the incoming signal and how it processes it, making it smoother or punchier like a regular compressor plug-in.
