  1. Hi Guys!

    I have a small home studio and are recording demoes for our band..
    But when I try to burn the CDs I have problems to get the level up high and the final result to sound real tight...
    My question to you guys ...
    1. Should I buy some software ( wavelab or soundforge )or is there any out board gear for a reasonable cost.
    2. What are the first small steps that I could do to improve the result. My guess is that its alot about compression and EQing...I got 2 SSL mixbus comps and an calreq para EQ and some 1176 is on its way...Should I use the out board I got or should I buy any software to do it in the computer...

    Thanks for any input on this one...
    I am a DIYer som maybe there is som good mastering outboard that is buildeble...

    You can do this outboard easily, with:

    (a) all the gear you mention or
    (b) you can use a mastering processor like DBX Quantum or the Drawmer mastering unit that has all this in one box plus multi-band limiting.
