IK Multimedia in Modena, Italy, announces the release of two new T-RackS mixing plug-ins that are modeled on two renowned analog compressors: the Black 76 Limiting Amplifier and the White 2A Leveling Amplifier ($99.99 each). Both are available as single plug-ins for most DAWs, or they may be integrated in the new T-RackS suite of mixing and mastering effects, now updated with 64-bit compatibility, both in stand-alone and plug-in modes.
IK Multimedia’s Black 76 Limiting Amplifier plug-in
The Black 76 Limiting Amplifier is modeled after the Universal Audio 1176LN Limiting Amplifier FET-based compressor. IK Multimedia modeled the LN version, revision E, which is widely recognized for its input transformer and Class-A output stage. The White 2A Leveling Amplifier models the tube-based Teletronix Model LA-2A Leveling Amplifier, a tube amp with photo-resistors, lit by a fluorescent panel driven by the output signal. Two years in the making, IK Multimedia modeled each unit to the finest detail, matching all of the controls and their behaviors, including the VU-meter response.
Both the Black 76 and the White 2A are available as single T-RackS mixing plug-ins for DAW platforms in RTAS, AU and VST formats. They can also be integrated with the T-RackS suite of effects as they can be opened inside the T-RackS’ 12-slot, serial-parallel processor chain, both in stand-alone and plug-in modes, taking advantage of T-RackS’ advanced routing, metering and preset capabilities. With the addition of these two new classics, T-RackS users will have a total of 12 superior dynamic and EQ effects to choose from, including a full-fledged professional metering suite for mixing and mastering.
IK Multimedia’s White 2A Leveling Amplifier plug-in
T-RackS and all of its effect processors have been updated to Version 3.5, now supporting all 64-bit DAWs. The update is available a free download to all existing T-RackS 3 Deluxe, Standard, shell and Singles users. The T-RackS 3.5 standalone application is fully compatible with IK Multimedia’s new ARC Version 1.3, which also adds native 64-bit compatibility.
The Black 76 and White 2A are available as a download from the IK Multimedia online store or from selected music retailers carrying the T-RackS 3 singles in multi-box format.
