Get T-RackS Classic Clipper For FREE Until September 22nd!


IK Multimedia is offering the T-RackS Classic Clipper as a free download for all of its new and existing newsletter subscribers before September 22nd, 2020.

T-RackS Classic Clipper is part of IK Multimedia’s popular T-RackS CS “Custom Shop” collection of mixing and mastering tools. It is a peak clipper effect with an adjustable slope and a handy gain reduction meter. Classic Clipper also features an optional “saturation” mode which further enhances the signal by adding harmonics.

Thanks to the slope adjustment control, the user can fine-tune the plugin’s clipping circuit. It can operate as a soft clipper, a hard clipper, or you can set it somewhere between those two extremes.

T-RackS Classic Clipper works great as a tool for taming the excessive volume peaks before sending the track to a limiter. Or, it can be used as a gentle saturation effect that sounds similar to analog tape. Play around with the different settings to keep the plugin transparent or introduce some harmonic saturation for a more lively sound.

The plugin normally costs €49.99 in the IK Multimedia online store, but you can get it completely free of charge until September 22nd. Existing subscribers will receive T-RackS Classic Clipper automatically. Everyone else should sign up for IK Multimedia’s newsletter first (this step is also free).

  1. 1.7gb for a clipper lol, It better be worth it when I try it. I imagine most of the weight comes from the Custom Shop thing. is it necessary to use this plugin?

    • Its not necessary. There are free alternatives… freeclip from venn audio comes to mind. But this is a nice to have, though. And most likely of very good quality. I’ll get it for sure.

      About the weight, I havent checked this, but I think you can get black 76, white 2a, ONE and VC670 for a couple of bucks if you buy some back issues of computer music magazine (and some other magazine I dont remember). Its all included in those 1.7 gb.

      • Those Computer Music Magazine offers were only valid for a limited time. You cannot get them retrospectively. Not to mention that many potential users had complained in the past about the huge size of the IKM installer. If it’s still 1.7 gb than it means that IKM does not listen to it’s user base. Personally I stay away from such companies – no hate!

  2. FYI IK Multimedia is pretty terrible in that it will install all VST’s (even the non-free ones) and flood your VST folder in hopes of getting you to buy the other ones. Pretty annoying. I had to go in and delete all the other ones so my VST folder was manageable again.

    • Nice find!

      Yeah, I freakin’ love IK’s plugin design aesthetic (esp for hardware fx like comps, or even this one), and they really do make a few remarkable gems… but they’re just not that kind to their user base. Used to have to pay to re-download libraries, and they still install all kinds of crap you don’t want just to get the bits you do (actually, sort of like FL Studio there)… yeah. I have mixed feelings about IK. But (ahem) I still want that clipper! (facepalm)

    • It can be messy, yes. Last time I just told it to install the plugins in a subfolder caller IK Multimedia and that made it pretty easy to clean up. I’d say thats the only way to keep it tidy and painless…

      • It only hurt’s if you don’t already have IK multimedia’s App installed lmao.. I been gave in what, 2 years ago now ahha smh.. I just go to my account on their website and make sure i get my free gimme delivered to my account then authorize in the manager App, then scan b4 i start making beat’s so i know it’s already working if i want to use it.

        I’ve got quit a TR5 collection starting to build up (Classic E.Q, The One, Clipper, Black 76 Limiter) etc lol.. I said hxll,>>sooner, or later i’ll have the whole TR5 collection dxmn near for free at the rate these software developers/companies are giving away free plugins lmao, it’s krazy out here in these music producer street’s ahah!

        But yeah, as for any plugin’s companies that make you disgustingly have to download their whole 300 plugin catalog,>>best thing i can advise you to do is you can just buy an 2+ TERABYTE EXTERNAL HD and and install stuff like that on their

        Just make sure the “locations path”, and External HD drive “plugins folder” are added & Scan inside your music making software, DAW etc, & everything should be there as if it was on you main PC’s C Drive..

        SO now iv’e cleared half of my 500 GB HD total use of on board RAM that was totally full, eaten up, in the red lol.. external HDD and even more SDD is a producer’s best friend.. Put ALL samples & necessary plugins on externals.. It’s ideal to have at least 2 back up externals just for precautionary measure

        • Yeah, I have two TB of installed memory. Space is not the problem. But I like things clean and organized. Which also makes “debugging” easier when the vst scan shows any error/crashes.

          And yes, definitely… it’s very satisfying to have a nice collection of freebies from IK. Makes it worth it to have all those files!

      • But YES. IK Multimedia’s plugin delivery, registration’s process etc is most definitely “MESSY” with a capital M ahaha smh.. I hate it with all the passion my heart & soul can muster lol facts.. It’s HORRID!! And if their product wasn’t so nostalgically good i wouldn’t even bother

  3. kind of related kind of not but i downloaded the black 76 when it was free and now my license doesnt exist anymore. have you ever had an issue with that? ik has terrible registration processes i cant believe it sometimes lol
