Tutorial: Instant 32 Band Dynamic EQ via TrackSpacer

In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to get instant 32 Band Dynamic EQ sidechaining with WavesFactory’s TrackSpacer!



Getting your sidechaining done with a dynamic EQ is far superior to regular old sidechaining!

iZotope gives you a few dynamic EQ bands in Neutron & Ozone; I even made one with 4 bands for Ask Audio magazine a few weeks ago, however TrackSpacer gives you 32 bands!!!

YES! 32 Bands!! Whats more, the plug figures out where and what to cut automatically!

Release Notes

One of a Kind

Trackspacer creates space in a mix by carving the frequencies that the main track needs into another track in real time. Similar to a sidechain compressor, but a thousand times more powerful and transparent. It’s considered a secret mixing weapon by many artists, producers and engineers.

Secret Mixing Weapon

Trackspacer features a 32 band EQ that reacts to the incoming sidechain signal. It analyses the spectrum of the sidechain and applies a reversed EQ curve to another track. That way you are creating space for a certain track by cutting the exact frequencies that it needs in realtime to another track.

Free Demo

Download the free demo and try by yourself how Trackspacer can be a time saver (or sometimes a life saver) in many situations. Insert it on the bass track and have it listen to the kick, set the amount of effect to be applied gradually and hear how the kick cuts through the mix. Try it on vocals vs guitars, snare vs overheads, acoustic guitar vs synth pads… you name it.

About Sidechain

Audio processors react to an input signal and produce an output one. This input signal can be the direct or external, the external is also called “side-chain”. It is very common to use a sidechain compressor, specially in EDM, to duck a track based on the level of another audio track (i.e. pumping effect).

Trackspacer Vs Compression

Compressors react to the amplitude / volume / level of the audio signal. Based on how loud the source signal is, they apply more or less compression. Multiband compressors split the signal in different bands and apply different settings on each band, but the detection is still the same as regular ones.

Trackspacer splits the source signal in 32 bands and analyses them individually. Then, it reverses the result and applies a 32 band EQ to duck exactly the same frequencies that the source needs… and in real time! That’s why it’s much better, transparent and easy to use than regular compressors, it’s all about detection.
