    What is the best sounding mastering software for processing audio?
    And what software has the best mastering plugins?

    For now I'm using Logic with my selections of Waves and UAD plugins, but i feel i could get more out of working with a system like Sonic Solutions.

    What do you think Joe Lambert? what have you tried?
    ...And what have you others tried and like best?

    Regards,
    Henrik

    All of the top systems are know for their editing, assembling and sonic integrity. Sonic HD has I think 1 eq that is ok. most of the plugins are for noise and a quick fix, not for main processing. All of the guys I know that use Sonic, sadie, sequia process with dedicated outboard. I once used a classic sonic system's eq's and compressor and thought it sounded horrid. Plugins are designed as a cheap alternative to hardware, not a better. At least not yet.

    Thanks for asking.

    I use Sonic Solutions HD as my main system. I will do spot fixes, no noise, de clicking and that sort of work in the computer. But 99% of my eq, compression... is done with hi end outboard analog and digital gear.If you want check out my website to see a list of the gear I use.

    Logic, Pro Tools, all those systems are great for tracking and mixing if you want to work that way. My opinion is if you want world class mastering you need to use the best outboard processing. There is no comparison. For several reasons.

    Uncle Kurt, for Xmas you might choose your gift:

    a) a brand new SVHS adat tape for your hungry adats. How long have they been without food?-lol

    b)A Xehringer mic pre. ( Xerox + Behringer)

    sorry, bad joke

    You deserve the best!

    I have a garage full of adat tapes from all the clients I had over the years, so I guess I would go for the pre amp. Is that a copy of a knockoff pre?? A 3rd generation AHRENPEE?

    Maybe Sebatron can help us improve it. What about keeping at least the factory paper box?

    Thanks Joe!
    And thanks for all the answers.

    I'll hope santa will come along... someday.
    Right now i could probably get a Sonic Solutions HD but not all the signal processing gear. :confused:

    Kurt,
    In Canada, we believe that Santa Clause uses a postal code and not a zip code. Therefore his correct address should read:

    Mr Kris Kringle
    The North Pole
    Arctic Circle
    H0H-0H0

    Just a heads up. (ha ha)

    This assumes, of course, that you've been good boys all year long & won't be getting lumps of old floppy disks in your stocking.
