System requirements : Windows: XP and later. DAW with sidechain functionality. 2GB of RAM recommended.
Description : Trackspacer creates space in a mix, controlling the frequencies of one track by another like side chain compression in real time, but a thousand times more powerful and transparent. This is considered a secret weapon when mixing many artists, producers and engineers.
Secret Weapons : The Trackspacer has a 32-band equalizer that responds to the incoming side-chain signal. It analyzes its spectrum and changes the EQ curve of the other track. In this way, you create space for a specific track, cutting out the frequencies that are needed by another track in real time.
ADDITIONAL PANEL : With version 2.0, the plug-in was improved by introducing new features for better sound control. With the input of M / S or L / R modes, you can apply the effect only to the middle channel, or to the middle one, or between them. Now, using the attack and release controls, you can set how Trackspacer reacts to the incoming signal and how it will handle it, making the signal smoother or more punchy, like a normal compressor.
About Said-Cheyne : Audio processors respond to the incoming signal and output the output. This input signal can be direct or external, the external signal is also called “side-chang”. Very often a sidechain compressor is used, especially in EDM, for ducking tracks based on the level of another audio track (that is, the pumping effect).
TRACKSPACER COMPARISON : Compressors respond to the amplitude / volume / level of the audio signal. Based on how loud the source signal is, so much more or less compression will be applied. Multiband compressors divide the signal into different ranges and apply different settings on each range, but detection is still constant. Trackspacer splits the original signal into 32 bands and analyzes them separately. Then he reverses the result and applies a 32-band equalizer to return exactly the same frequencies that the source needs … and in real time! That’s why it’s much better, more transparent and easier to use than conventional compressors.
New in version:
– New and bigger UI.
– Lighter CPU.
– Better UX with one single installer for both demo and full versions.
– Dropped support for RTAS, Windows XP and Vista and MacOS 10.5 and 10.6.
– Bigger label for parameter values.
– New binary name “Trackspacer25”, it works in conjunction with the old version in order to be able to run old projects.
– New plug-in name, labeled as “TrackSpacer 2.5” in your DAW.
There is some issue with 2.5.1, it doesnt show in Reaper 5.80 mac, but 2.5.0 works exactly. Also some issues with saved settings etc.
