IK Multimedia’s T-Racks mastering suite is a modular program: basic core functionality is free, and users build up a collection of tasty processors by making in-app purchases from the company’s Custom Shop. The latest tempting morsel that IK have set before their customers is the Stealth Limiter, a mastering limiter which is claimed to preserve musical dynamics even when performing heroic feats of gain reduction.

To get Stealth Limiter, you first need to install T-Racks itself — which, at almost 1GB, is a larger package than some DAWs — before clicking on the Custom Shop button. Here, you can trade money for Custom Shop credits, and credits for T-Racks modules; 125 credits are required to purchase the Stealth Limiter. Once activated, it’s available as a self-contained plug-in or as a module within the stand-alone and plug-in versions of T-Racks.

Stealth Limiter’s controls will be familiar to anyone who’s used a mastering limiter before. The Output Ceiling control would usually be left in its default -0.1dB setting, and the bulk of the work is done using the Input gain dial. A button labelled Unity Gain Monitor lets you easily A/B the processed against the bypassed sound without level changes, and there are also dither and oversampling options (but you’ll need a fast computer to use the 16x option!). What’s less usual is a button that switches between four different modes labelled Tight, Balanced and Harmonics 1 and 2.

There is a perceptible difference in the sound of these modes, especially between Tight mode and the others. In Tight mode, Stealth Limiter seems to behave in quite a similar way to other mastering limiters I’ve used; switch to Balanced, however, and the sound of a busy mix really opens up. Compared with FabFilter’s fine Pro-L limiter, which is my usual first choice, I was often able to squeeze another dB or two out of the same mixes before limiting artifacts became audible. In its impressive ability to retain the punch and impact of transients, it beats anything else I’ve heard apart from Slate’s pioneering FG-X. At this price Stealth Limiter is a bargain: it’s definitely a must-have for anyone who’s already a T-Racks user, and should convert plenty of new followers to IK’s suite. Highly recommended.

Overview
VSampler transforms your PC into a 255 voice polyphonic software sampler that is able to use any recorded sound as a musical instrument. It provides all of the classical sampler features in excellent sound quality, and also offers you a multitude of unique new opportunities. VSampler plays XXL instruments without being limited to the RAM size. In cooperation with the users of its award-winning predecessor an intelligent softwaresampler has been created, which beneath a truly transparent surface combines extensive editing abilities with simplest handling. Drag&drop; actions and context menus (right mousekey) allow quick access to all functions and provide for a smooth workflow.

VSampler can operate either as a plug-in (VSTi, DXi) in your sequencer or as an independent program (ReWire, MIDI), it uses up to 32 separate audio outputs (ASIO, DirectSound). The included “virtual MIDI-cable” also connects VSampler to any MIDI-file player (check the GM soundset offer!) or classical MIDI sequencer.

VSampler loads instruments in the popular sampler formats SF2™, Gigastudio™, HALion™ 1 + 2, Kontakt™ 1.x, DLS, AKAI™ (S1000/S3000 CD and S5000/S6000 .AKP files) and E-MU™ III / IV CD. Furthermore VSampler loads LM4™ and Battery™ drumkits plus ReCycle™ (RCY, REX, RX2) and ACID™ drumloops. Your own Instruments are quickly created by dragging WAV or AIF Samples onto the on-screen keyboard.

VSamplers unique instrument preview allows you to test different sounds with a single mouse-click even during playback. Owners of an SB Live!™ / Audigy™ / X-Fi™ soundcard will be pleased that VSampler can also save files in the popular SF2 format.

VSampler's various tempo-synchronizable envelope types and LFO's, and its velocity sensitive filters ranging from subtle to aggressive are all inducive to sound editing. Instruments can be further refined using either the included effects (Reverb, Delay, Phaser, Distortion, EQ …) or any VST-plugin. The animation of all effect-, envelope- and filter-parameters in a mutual modulation matrix, creates instruments with extraordinary dynamics and impressive, realistic playability. The included presets for effects, envelopes and modulation will get you off to a good start.

Whether quick playback module for everyday use or creative tool with synthesizer qualities - VSampler fuses both in a versatile instrument.

interesting that it supported ReWire??
im assuming this is the exact same product with a new skin? extended functionality?
