Many useful audio tools

HoRNet TrackUtility
image-2967

TrackUtility is a swiss army knife for audio, it features different useful processors that you would otherwise need to find loading many plugins in a handy small 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 is there for you.

Thanks to the limiter in the output section, the stereo wideness control 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.

Video Overview

The demo is fully functional except for the fact that every now and then it will silence out, you cannot save parameter values with your session and the plugin will not respond to automation coming from the host.

Copy protection

The HoRNet TrackUtility¬†has no copy protection, I don’t believe in copy protection, they are always cracked and they are annoying for the users, we all know you are not going to give away the plugin on the internet…

So simply download the plugin and enjoy your recordings!



One thought on “HoRNet TrackUtility

Quick access to your channel's more utilitarian settings. Left/right solo, flip and phase. Gorgeous, tall, bright and accurate Peak/RMS meters. Trim, width and pan settings, and Clip/Limit options. Switching DAWs after a lifelong marriage to Pro Tools suddenly made me want to make sure I had all plugins covered, independant of DAWs. This is the perfect, and inexpensive, yet beautiful option. Love it.

My only drawback is Gain automation. In Studio One 3 (and this could be a problem DAW end), when automating the TrackUtility Gain dial, the Studio One tooltip returns a decimal scale (e.g. "0.654") rather than the dBFS value shown within the plugin, e.g. -3.4dB. This often means I turn to Stock plugs for this particular task.
