Waves Offers TRACT Loudspeaker Correction Plug-in

Waves Audio has announced its TRACT Loudspeaker Correction, a corrective EQ and system time alignment tool for studio environments and live PA systems.

Together with Rational Acoustics’ Smaart Audio Analysis software, Waves said TRACT makes correcting a sound system’s EQ quick and easy, yielding perfect results every time.

With Rational Acoustics’ Smaart v8 or Smaart Di v2 audio analysis software running, the TRACT plug-in allows users to view frequency and phase response in real time. Take and merge snapshots of a system’s transfer measurements, and have TRACT instantly calculate a corrective FIR EQ curve.

Select from four reference frequency response curves or save a reference preset. TRACT’s calculated FIR can be augmented with up to eight bands of low-phase IIR filter shapes, including bell, low/high shelves, flat-top, Butterworth and Linkwitz-Riley, tilt and all-pass.

The plug-in is very low-latency with low phase distortion, and also includes a linear-phase FIR component. Use it in a live setting with Waves MultiRack, the Waves eMotion LV1 mixing console or in a DAW.

The plug-in is available in June, 2018.
