I think I’ll need to get this and see how it works for me. The more tools the better, right? It reminds me a bit of Mastering The Mix’s Expose stand alone app, which I use to master. You simply drag and drop your mastered audio file into Expose and it has a number of different presets for LUFS, dynamic range, stereo correlation, etc for mastering for YouTube/SoundCloud/Apple Music/Netflix and instantly shows how your track meets all those presets, or where it’s lacking and in exactly which section of your track.

They also have another cool plug-in that you put at the end of your master bus, then click and drag a file of a piece you want to use to use as reference and it essentially shows the same info as Expose, but how your track compares to the reference track.

Yes, and the great aspect imho is that you can see your “music story” as measured in dynamics! :smiley:

Yeah, I need to get better at mixing, so anything that helps make it easier to learn. Have you used any Mastering The Mix’s tools? They’re very easy to use.

No, but for the actual mastering chain I have my process already setup as I like it. Only thing I might add is a tape machine emulation for that final analog character to warm up the masters. :wink:

Tape emulation? Interesting. I’ll need to give that I try. There was a Czech composer I read once who said that he actually applies a “record player” effect very quietly under the whole master to make it sound like an analog recording to make it feel more organic.

Yes, not “home recording tapes”, I mean professional studio grade tape machines they used to record every album to back in the days. Here’s one I might get: https://u-he.com/products/satin
