I had no problems getting the T-Racks Mastering Software 2.0 up and running on my machine. It was as easy as any plug-in I have installed before. The configuration of the plug-in takes a bit of getting used to, only because the plug-in is packed with a few different signal processors and each one has its own unique parameters. That being said, everything is laid out in a nice order and the interface is very user friendly. The VU meters and the EQ graph are both easy to follow and very helpful. I've never looked at the manual before as I didn't have any problems with installation and was able to figure out the plug-in as a whole pretty easily.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I am running the plug-in on a Mac Book Pro with a 2.2 Ghz processor and 4 GB of RAM. I have been using it in Pro Tools 7.4 with a Digi 002 rack as an audio interface and monitoring with Yamaha NS-10s. I am getting good performance from it while only using it on the master fader. Beyond that I'm not sure how well it will run, but keep in mind it is obviously a mastering plug-in and is not really intended for use beyond the master fader.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had the T-Racks Mastering Software for about a year. It is a really convenient and quick way to master mixes. The plug-in is reasonably priced and has an equalizer, a tube compressor, and a multi-band limiter. It also has sections for output leveling, presets, fading in and out and setting it to either mono or stereo. I like this mastering suite better than Izotope Ozone as I think the signal processing is more realistic and authentic, and while it is a bit more expensive than the Ozone, I think it is worth the price. Overall I like this plug-in as a cheap, all in the box option for quick and easy mastering that can add a lot to your mixes.
