Mastering exercise for everybody !


Hi gang,

A few weeks ago I posted a series of 3 videos of me mixing a song on my youtube channel.
I've been suggested to make the mix accessible so anyone can do a mastering of it as an exercise and to compare our shops.

Here are the files, either in 48khz or 96khz, just choose your favorite format :
You can post links of your version here and I'll do a video to compare each versions while quoting the comments this will receive.

Mastering with explanations


In this video I simulate what a mastering engineer would do to a mix.
Of course, a true ME will use far more advanced tools than Ozone to do so, but I thought it would be nice to discuss what they look for and how a mix can be transformed.

Disclaimer, I'm not a mastering engineer, I don't have the space and tools and I wouldn't pretend being one..

This is only a sample to help us realize what happens to our mix when a ME work on it.

How are people dealing with COVID-19?


My mastering and restoration business is way down and has been for the past 6 months. We are still getting in some mastering and some restoration work but nothing like it was last year at the same time. I keep reading that there is a lot of music being produced by people who are staying home but I don't see much of it coming through here. Just thought I would ask how others are doing???

Be safe and STAY HEALTHY!

First pair of mastering monitors


Hi everybody,

I'm looking to upgrade my monitors and looking for my first pair of mastering grade monitors. I've heard a few of the PMC & ATC's in other studios but my budget won't stretch to the larger models.
I've seen the PMC Result 6's - their entry level monitors, would they be suitable? Or should I save up for something else?
Thanks in advance for any advice

Izotope Ozone 9 lets you re-balance vocals in stereo mix.


This is a great new feature! Something i think we have been wishing for, for a long time. Adjust vocals, drums, and bass individually, right from the stereo mix! I skipped the upgrade from ozone 7 to 8, but did take advantage of intro pricing on 9, mainly for this feature. Check it out, seems to work very transparently. Between this, and superior drummer 3s ability to extract individual drums (and midi) from a stereo drum track, things are getting quite cool. We can now evade commitment even further in the process lol. Finally moving passed just emulations of great analog gear.
