Description : Trackspacer creates space in the mix, controlling the frequencies of one track by another, like sidechain 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 Weapon : Trackspacer has a 32-band equalizer, which responds to the incoming signal of the side chain. It analyzes its spectrum and modifies the EQ curve of another track. In this way, you create space for a specific track by cutting out the frequencies that another track needs in real time.
ADDITIONAL PANEL : With version 2.0, the plugin has been 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, third-party or between them. Now with the attack and release controls, you can set how Trackspacer will react to the incoming signal and how it will process it, making this signal smoother or more penetrative, like a normal compressor.
ABOUT SAID-HEAD : Audio processors respond to the incoming signal and output the output. This input signal can be direct or external, external is also called “side-chain”. A sidechain compressor, especially in an EDM, is often used for ducking a track based on the level of another sound track (i.e. pumping effect).
TRACKSPACER IN COMPARISON WITH COMPRESSION : Compressors respond to amplitude / volume / audio level. Based on how loud the source signal is, so much more or less will compression be applied. Multiband compressors divide the signal into different ranges and apply different settings on each range, but the detection remains constant. Trackspacer splits the source signal into 32 bands and analyzes them individually. It then reverses the result and applies the 32-band equalizer to return exactly the same frequencies that the source needs … and in real time! That is why it is much better, more transparent and easier to use than regular compressors.
