I am an owner of a loaded-to-the max UAD-1. I do not have much experience with it though. I am now using Wavelab to mix & master my first serious demo project. Although I have Waves Diamond Bundle & Ozone 4, I predict the UAD-1 effects are superior. My project has a few crappy merged/distorted takes (easily revealed when adding master EQ and effects). I have read that the UAD-1 Precision modules (EQ, Multiband-Comp & Limiter) are good for mastering. I think I found some presets from each module that sound pretty good (but I have questions). 1) Is it overkill to use both a multiband compressor and a limiter? 2) What order is best for these three? I assumed 1-comp, 2-eq, 3-limiter. Yes? No? 3) Is there a good stereo imaging widener on the UAD-1? 4) Is there anything else I should consider adding (from the UAD-!) and in what order? Keep in mind that I am pretty much an idiot when it comes to dialing in custom parameters (like with multiband & EQ). I would like to just use SUGGESTED presets (from you all, hopefully) and tweak a little from there. Honestly, I am "sickened from flaws in this recording, just want it finished & chalk it up as "schooling" for future recordings. At first, I was just going to use My Ozone 4 (as everyone says it is a great ALL-IN-ONE box). However, to my ears, the UAD-A presets are WAY better. Now, I just need to make sure that when I MANUALLY choose effects, I do not leave any important effect out of the mix. May I ask you all to comment? I will only have one shot at mastering before I make my music public. Please comment. again... 1) DO YOU AGREE THAT THE PRECISION MODULES ARE THE BEST FOR MASTERING? 2) WHAT ORDER DO I PUT THE EFFECTS? 3) WHAT PRESETS DO YOU SUGGEST I START TRYING FIRST? 4) WHAT ADDITIONAL EFFECTS MIGHT I CONSIDER?
