The IK Multimedia T-Racks Classic Equalizer is a plug-in that comes in the newest version of T-Racks 3. It is modeled after the equalizer that is found in T-Racks 2. The plug-in is also available as a single plug-in if you want to buy it outside of T-Racks 3. The process of installing T-Racks 3 as a whole was easy enough, but I can't say anything about installing this as an individual plug-in. The interface of the plug-in consists of six bands, including a high and low pass on both ends. The four middle bands have parameters for gain and frequency, with the most middle two also have knobs for gain. There is a graph that is easily manipulated on it's own if you don't want to use the knobs. Lastly, there is a knob for overall output level and a bypass switch. I haven't seen a manual for this plug-in individually, and I'm not sure if there is specifically something on this plug-in in the T-Racks 3 manual.


Right now I'm running T-Racks 3 and the IK Multimedia T-Racks Classic Equalizer plug-in on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I run the plug-in both in T-Racks 3 as standalone software and in Pro Tools LE 8 as an RTAS plug-in. For Pro Tools LE 8, I have a Digi 002R audio interface. All of the plug-ins in T-Racks 3 take up a decent amount of processing power, as is the case with this one. It doesn't seem to take up as much processing power as some of the other T-Racks 3 plug-ins do, but you would still like it to be possible to run it without taxing your system as much as it does.


While the IK Multimedia T-Racks Classic Equalizer is a useful plug-in, it isn't one that I would ever recommend buying outside of T-Racks 3. It's definitely nice to have it when you get T-Racks 3, but as far as getting it as a single individual plug-in, I don't think it's worth the price. I'd recommend going with the Linear Phase EQ plug-in that is also included in T-Racks 3 if you're going to buy one of the T-Racks 3 plug-ins individually. The Classic Equalizer definitely has a clean sound quality and is great for equalizing of all kinds, but I'm not able to run one on every channel because of how much processing power it takes up. For this reason I often end up using other equalizers. If you're interested in this plug-in, I'd encourage you to go with buying T-Racks 3 as a whole.
