    Hi, i have recorded a 24 tracks concert with an alesis hd 24 at 48 khz and 24 bit, i imported it in logic and mixed it, now , I am going to bounce on 2 tracks, to go to a mastering session.
    so what is THE correct work flow, bouncing and sample rate conversion with logic and l3 at the end as last plug in?

    bouncing with no sample rate conversion and use later in mastering session, l3 to do the job?
    well ho do use L3 and what is correct work flow

    I would not use L3 at all. Just send the 2-track 24-bit 48KHz mix to the mastering house. They will have better tools than any "ultramaximizer". Assuming you want to end up with a 44.1KHz 16-bit CD master, the mastering house will do what is necessary to get your mix to that point.

    Don't use it during the mix process, use during mastering, if you're self mastering.

    It's so cheap these days to send single songs out to mastering houses that you almost have to do it for anything halfway serious.

    You haven't really said if you want to "master" yourself or are you preparing to send to a dedicated facility.

    There is much more to
    Mastering than a software brickwall limiter.

    It's for these common misconceptions that I'm writing a book on home audio. Sorry, I don't mean to sound condescending or anything, I'm really very humble.
