T-RackS Master EQ 432
IK Multimedia’s T-RackS CS Version 4.5 ($149.99 introductory price) is the newest version of the company’s T-RackS CS (Custom Shop) mixing and mastering plug-in that includes Master EQ 432, said to be the first and only digital re-creation available in software of the first parametric design EQ. The Master EQ 432 is a stereo 5-band parametric EQ featuring two bands of shelving EQ plus three bands of peaking EQ.
T-RackS Custom Shop V. 4.5 offers a mixing and mastering shell system that allows the user to have up to 26 outboard processors all available in one product for a DAW or desktop, both singularly or together.
The Master EQ 432 is based on the true “gold standard” of mastering EQs. The original 432 mastering EQ is known for its inherent musicality, pristine audio quality and transparency that result from its no-compromise build quality and transformerless signal path. IK Multimedia states that its T-RackS Master EQ 432 duplicates the original sonic character, functionality and familiar look, and also adds extended features found in this model only.
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 the individual T-RackS processors from the plug-in selection area in DAW channel strips plus immediate access in the T-RackS Mastering chain plug-in.
Because the processors are immediately available within the DAW channel strip, users can choose to audition the processor or purchase it directly from within their workflow.
