My musical recordings need to be mastered. To date, none of them have, and they sound unfinished because they are. Looking around for mastering software and methodologies, I found a company that appears to have packaged an automated copilot for mixing tasks. Mastering the Mix is an appropriate company name.
Mastering the Mix offers several plugins. I opted to spend time on the free 15-day trial for 2 of their products: Limiter and Levels.
BTW, prices are 5% cheaper if you purchase at Plugin Boutique. Plugin Boutique also offers the free Youlean Loudness Meter, which I downloaded.
Here are the settings for Let’s Do Ourselves Better, a song I am currently working on.
Listen to the difference: original with limiter as shown.
I would like a less breathless and more factual description of exactly what the NRG and PCH sliders do.
