The IK Multimedia Classic T-RackS Clipper Software (Download) is a dynamic processor designed for mastering applications. Instead of using peak limiting, it utilizes peak clipping to tame unwanted peaks in the audio signal.
It utilizes peak clipping to address unwanted audio peaks in a way that is more transparent sounding and less noticeable than traditional peak limiting. It can also be used to generate harmonic saturation and creative distortion effects. This can be helpful to give sounds such as bass or snare more presence and character in the mix.
The user interface features virtual metering and includes virtual knobs for controlling the input gain level, the slope, and the output level. A bypass switch allows you to A/B the effect of the processing on the signal, and a reset switch can be used to restore the original settings.
The plug-in is fully compatible with native 32- and 64-bit applications on both Mac OS X (Universal Binary) and Windows (XP/Vista/7/8) computers. It supports VST, RTAS, AAX, and Audio Units plug-in formats. It can also be used with the T-RackS CS standalone application (sold separately).
