When the world’s best producers, music makers and engineers approach a session, they don’t think in terms of individual effects – they think about building entire processing chains, tailored to each vocal or instrumental track.
StudioRack makes this approach easily accessible to everyone. The new StudioRack features a sleek, focused interface that allows you to easily build chains of up to 8 plugins per chain. Whether your chains are simple or complex – turning your mixing and production ideas into reality has never been easier, more powerful, or more fun.
Create Your Own ‘Custom Plugins’ with Macros
Once your chains are in place, how do you quickly dial in the exact sound you want, without wasting time or slowing down your creative process?
StudioRack’s new Macros allow you to combine different parameters from any or all plugins in your chain, and assign them to a single macro control. With 8 powerful macros per chain, you can dial in the sound of entire plugin chains with just a few well-selected macros – essentially creating your own signature ‘custom plugins.’
Parallel processing – the mixing of a dry signal alongside the processed audio – can help you achieve sharp attacks alongside compression; stereo imaging in reverbs that mix their input to mono before processing; and much more to add punch, depth and presence to your mix.
StudioRack’s new parallel racks bring this power to any plugin chain you desire. With up to 8 parallel mono, stereo, and even M/S (mid/side) racks that you can open from any slot within any chain, StudioRack lets you create parallel chains without complex routing — and save them for easy recall.
Want to turn CLA-2A or CLA-76 into multiband compressors? Or marry the classic sound of R-Vox with full multiband control? How about multiband reverb, delay, console colour or tape saturation – with the plugins you already love, no sonic compromise?
StudioRack’s new multiband racks give you access to every multiband trick in the book. You can split any signal into up to 5 frequency bands, with full control over your crossover points – and assign your plugins of choice to any or all bands, for finer control over your mixes and production effects.
Many of us need to switch DAWs on a regular basis, in order to collaborate with other producers, mix sessions originally created on different DAWs, or work in different studios.
StudioRack lets you save entire plugin chains and move them quickly between Pro Tools, Logic, Ableton, Cubase, Studio One, FL Studio, REAPER or any other major DAW – without losing time, focus or creative energy.
