Bobby Owsinski has this to say, "T-RackS is a simple yet powerful app that has all of the features you need to do a great mastering job. One of the things that's makes all T-RackS versions so popular is the warm analog sound that the processor modules provide, since they closely emulate the circuitry of some of the vintage hardware devices that many pros have come to love. Modeling the sound of a piece of hardware is not a trivial process, but IK Multimedia gets better and better at what amounts to a new art form." Pricing and Availability:
