  1. Hi folks! Many people asked me to make a mastering tutorial for beginners. So here it is! Be aware that in this video I use a combination of stock plugins, and some free 3rd party plugins. IMHO, attempting to stick to CwB only plugins doesn't make sense for best results WATCH HERE: https://youtu.be/qpz8rdjUmRM

  10. You may not know me very well as i have quietly lurked the forum for years. I've been an avid and enthusiastic cakewalk user since sonar V5! Ive been mastering music in cakewalk since the very beginning of my career, and this year I came up with a challenge concept. I pitched the idea to a fellow mastering engineer and we started this challenge, called The Mastering Gauntlet! We have gained a bunch of sponsors willing to giveaway some pretty amazing offers, including Warp Academy giving away their Serum Jumpstart sound design master-class + the dark side funk Serum soundbank, Producer Dojo (run by dylan aka ill Gates) giving away 1 year subscription to their weekly download vault, Sample Hero is giving away their Everything Bundle which includes an assortment of cinematic and dark, moody virtual instruments, sample libraries, and midi kits which is growing monthly, and last but not least, Teknofonic is giving away one year of their pro membership to their business development platform which is a massive resource for artists, producers, and engineers to network and learn from some of the best in the industry! We also have deals from Distrokid, and Neverland Music Retreats. The Gauntlet has already started and has done free mastering for one artist every day this month, but we need your help! We need more submissions. I'm going to extend a special offer to this awesome community, and invite anyone who has any electronic-genre production to submit it to the Gauntlet by going to this private submission page: https://www.themasteringgauntlet.net/season-1-electric-summer-challenge-giveaway/: When you enter, page 2 will show that the prize giveaway portion is closed, but don't worry - we will manually add your email to the prize giveaway portion on our end after you've submitted. DON'T SLEEP ON THIS, FOLKS! I'm taking down the private page on 9/22. You'll have until then to submit a track. We will be selecting at random one per day until we fill every slot from now until 9/30 (for a total of 30 songs mastered), so the sooner you submit, the more likely you are to have your entry selected! Check The Mastering Gauntlet's facebook and instagram, we announce each winner daily!

  14. Introducing the T-RackS Tape Machine Collection Bring back the analog warmth and feel of reel-to-reel recording to your tracks IK Multimedia is proud to announce the T-RackS Tape Machine Collection, available now! This collection gives you the true character of analog tape, adding warmth, character and glue to your tracks like never before. The new models include the Tape Machine 440, Tape Machine 80, Tape Machine 24, and Tape Machine 99, re-creating four classic tape recording machines from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s: the Ampex® 440B, the Studer® A80, the MCI® JH24 and the Revox® PR99. Buy the Collection for a special $€/99.99* introductory price now The T-RackS Tape Machine Collection is the culmination of 2 years of research and development on real, world-class machines, each carefully restored “to spec” and modeled stage-by-stage for incredible accuracy. Using a careful mix of convolution and physical modeling, the Tape Machine Collection re-creates the complex interplay of machine, tape, and audio to capture even the smallest detail of each machine. Give your tracks that classic low-end weight, ear-pleasing high-end, saturation and glue that only tape can provide. Each Tape Machine module offers its own unique character plus 4 tape formulas, selectable tape speed, and common controls to let you easily audition the differences between the different machines and tape formulations. Inside the T-RackS Tape Collection Tape Machine 440: The Ampex 440 series dates from the late 1960’s, and delivers an unmistakably soulful color that made this professional and historic mixing and mastering machine a legend. This superb blend of art and technology has the power to turn your mixes into finished tracks. Tape Machine 80: The legendary Studer A80 Mk II, in its various revisions, is an essential part of countless influential records. Engineered and manufactured in Switzerland from 1970 to 1988, it became the de facto standard for professional high-end multi-tracking. The A80’s sonic signature is a perfect blend between transparency and subtle harmonic enhancement. Tape Machine 24: A model of the MCI JH24. First produced in 1980, the JH24 was a staple in US studios during the 1980s. This completely transformerless, high performance op-amp-based design delivers a pristine, phase coherent and remarkably true to the source audio performance. This results in a moderate and elegant polish to your music. Tape Machine 99: The Revox PR99 Mk II is a stereo professional recorder produced by Studer in the 1980s. Engineered around a hybrid design that combines the best of discrete and op-amp topologies, this model offers a very smooth frequency response, especially on bass, with almost no trace of the typical “head bump” phenomenon. A standard for broadcast and classical music, this machine was appreciated by audiophiles for its exceptional sonic quality. Both the T-RackS Tape Machine Collection and the individual a la carte processors are on sale for pre-order pricing now. Options, Pricing, and Availability The T-RackS Tape Collection bundle and individual Tape Machine Singles are available now in the IK Multimedia online store, Custom Shop and from IK authorized dealers worldwide. For a limited time through June 30, 2019, the T-RackS Tape Collection bundle will be available at a special introductory price of only $/€99.99*.

  20. I master my own recordings in my own clumsy, DIY way -- right or wrong, I get them sounding the way I want them to sound, and over the years I've learned from here and elsewhere and from experience and gotten a little better at it. So my question is not "how to master," but rather "how to master a collection of recordings." I mean if you have, for example, eight songs recorded and you want to put them together in the old-fashioned "album" format, how do you go about it? Obviously you have to decide on a song sequence, but once you've done that do you put all your mixes on the timeline in the correct order? And what if each track requires slightly different settings for EQ, compression and level in order to make the entire project feel like it's all one piece of work? I guess you could create a region for each track and apply these FX as needed for each region. I usually make my homemade masters of individual songs in Sound Forge 11, but I've never tried to make a collection of songs fit together as a coherent whole. Is there an app for this? For what it's worth I use CbB for all my projects, but I also own Studio One 4, Samplitude X3 and Sound Forge. Years ago I acquired CD Architect 5.2, which tries to do what I'm talking about, but is not compatible with VSTs. Or is this idea really just too old fashioned? Does anyone release digital albums? Do 21st century listeners even listen to whole albums? Any thoughts on this?
  21. A new product, I haven't tried this, some of you might want to check it out. --------- Mastering The Mix Releases ‘BASSROOM’ Plugin - a final mix and mastering EQ that helps beginners and pros nail their low-end in seconds. Balancing the low-end is one of the hardest challenges in any mix or master. This is where so many potentially awesome tracks fail. Too much bass and your track will sound bloated and lack clarity. Not enough bass and your track will sound weak. BASSROOM is a final mix and mastering EQ that helps beginners and pros nail their low- end in seconds. It does this by delivering exceptional sound quality and suggesting genre-specific EQ adjustments a great audio engineer in a world-class studio would make. We analysed the best mixes in various genres to give you EQ target presets you can trust. From this starting point, you can tweak your low-end to perfection using the immersive 3D room interface. Price: £49 https://www.masteringthemix.com/products/bassroom

  24. Here's a blues tune I created in 2011. I mixed it in SONAR. Most of the tracks were recorded at StudioPros. They also mixed and mastered the first version but I was unhappy with the result. (They did give me excellent individual tracks, however). So, I ended up re-mixing it myself and then sent it out for pro mastering. The "loudness war" was in full swing at the time. The mastering guy me gave something very hot, and I was satisfied, I suppose. Now there's a new loudness standard that's finally been adopted in America and Europe (Google LUFS and knock yourself out). Peak power has been supplanted by 'integrated loudness' measure in LUFS (Loudness Units relative to Full Scale). For example, Anything streamed by Spotify now gets standardized to -14 LUFS so there's a big penalty to pay for squashing the life out of your recordings. I have re-mixed and re-mastered the original song in Cakewalk to conform to a loudness of -14 LUFS. (The original version was a crazy -6 LUFS). I've included an image of the original and new wave forms. Here's the new and (I think) and much improved master. http://www.taggerband.com/Music/DBH/DoYouLikeTheBoy.html
