IK Multimedia T-Racks 4 + Custom Shop
IK Multimedia announces the release of T-RackS Custom Shop, the updated version 4.0 of its mixing and mastering suite for Mac and PC.
The new T-RackS CS offers five new analogue-modelled and digital processors, and it integrates the Custom Shop, IK's online gear shop, which allows users to purchase gear models à la carte from within the T-RackS software itself, and more.
The new T-RackS CS includes five new processing modules. Four belong to the new Quad Series of multiband mastering processors, which includes a compressor, limiter, stereo imager and de-esser. Each Quad module is equipped with a set of filters and a solo function for auditioning individual bands.
The fifth new processor is British Channel, an analogue-modelled emulation of the channel strip. It offers four bands of EQ, high- and low-pass filters, a compressor and an independent gate/expander section.
Additionally, T-RackS CS now integrates all of the CSR Classik Studio Reverb processors: Hall, Room, Plate and Inverse, which have been updated to offer 64-bit precision when running from the T-RackS shell.
Besides offering more processors, T-RackS CS is also said to improve the sound of two of its compressors/limiters: White 2A and Black 76.
T-RackS CS is also available for free. The free version, T-RackS Custom Shop, includes two functional modules (classic EQ and metering). It can be downloaded for free from the IK User Area upon registration.
The included modules are the 6-band parametric T-RackS Classic Equalizer, and a metering suite comprising Peak, Perceived Loudness, Phase and RMS meters, and a Spectrum analyzer. Both the EQ and meters are available in the T-RackS shell, but also open as separate plug-ins. With these two included plug-ins as a starting point, users can add gear as they see fit via the Custom Shop.

New T-RackS CS Bundle Collections
- In addition to the free version, T-RackS CS is now available in three distinct collections:
- Classic - formerly T-RackS Standard, it includes the four original T-RackS processors: Classic Compressor, Classic Multi-band Limiter, Classic Clipper and Classic Equalizer, plus the metering suite.
- Deluxe - includes everything in T-RackS CS Classic, plus Vintage Tube Compressor/Limiter Model 670, Vintage Tube Program Equalizer, Opto Compressor, Brickwall Limiter, and Linear Phase Equalizer.
- Grand - includes everything in T-RackS CS Deluxe, plus seven additional processors: Quad Comp, Quad Limit, Quad Image, De-Esser, British Channel, Black 76 and White 2A. It provides the full collection of 16 T-RackS processors, featuring all the new modules released so far (not including CSR).
As usual, all new and previous T-RackS processors can be opened in three forms: as separate single processor plug-ins, as modules available inside the T-RackS plug-in shell - which allows up to 12 to be chained - or inside the T-RackS standalone mastering suite.
