HoRNet has released TrackUtility MK2, a new version of the Swiss Army knife plug-in for audio. It features different useful processors that you would otherwise need to find loading many plugins in a handy and logical GUI that you can keep on your screen together with other plugins.
When you need to change a track from stereo to mono, remove DC, pan, trim, etc. TrackUtility MK2 is there for you.
Thanks to the limiter in the output section, the stereo wideness control, that can also act as a fake stereo simulator, and to the auto gain RMS mode TrackUtility is also very useful on the master bus for quick mastering. Set the RMS to your desired maximum level, engage the auto gain and the limiter. Set the stereo image to taste, here is a quick mastering recipe.
Building on the strength of the previous version TrackUtility MK2 adds a grouping function to allow for the change of any parameter to a whole bunch of instances at once, revamps the RMS meter with a freely adjustable window, includes the latest auto gain algorithm and borrows the limiter code straight from Magnus, allowing you to choose three different auto release times.
TrackUtility MK2 is available for 11.99€ on www.hornetplugins.com
Owners of previous version can upgrade for 1.49€.
