MixBox vs. T-RackS

Postby juergen_b » Fri Sep 10, 2021 11:42 am

Hi,

T-RackS 5 and CE are already in my arsenal of mix plugins. I wonder if I would benefit from getting MixBox. I'd appreciate any help with my questions:

  1. Most obviously MixBox provides processors of T-RackS and AmpliTube and SampleTank. If I'm only interested in T-RackS processors, does MixBox provide additional value compared to the TR5 Suite (e.g. routing)?
  2. I assume that the processors have the same sonic behaviour. Do some MixBox processors have reduced features due to the smaller GUI size?
  3. Is it possible to reuse T-RackS processor presets within MixBox?
  4. What about performance? Do corresponding processors consume similar CPU/memory or is one more lightweight than the other?
  5. Does the MixBox rack feature allow to have one plugin instance and using different racks from different tracks?

Thank you!

My understanding:

No
Yes
No
Don't know
No - you would put a separate MixBox instance on each track, then load whatever modules you want into each.

The best thing to do is install MixBox as a demo and compare it with T-RackS.

Immediately found a significant difference in favour of MixBox: it provides external sidechain processing while T-RackS doesn't.
