Hi guys,

Okay so now it’s the end of the next business day in Australia and the middle of it in the UK, or Monday 17th, I still have not received my requested withdrawal. Any ideas?

The price you see as an author is the price buyers pay when they use pre-paid credits. If not AJ will add $2 for non-members or members who pay without using pre-paid credits. :-)

My idea of mastering is changing the sound as little as possible. I don’t like heavy compression during mastering, no matter how many bands your compressor has, it just sounds unnatural.

I’ve heard this a lot lately on other forums I’m a member of. I don’t like heavy compression either unless I’m using parallel compression, but unfortunately the “loudness war” seems to dictate that mixes have to be loud, fat, and wide. It’s easy to get a mix loud and painful to listen to, but it’s not so easy to get a mix loud and sumptuous on the ear, that’s lively and dynamic, that for me is the real key to having a great master.

I would say depending on the track length, about the same, if you’re including, recording/writing, mixing and mastering in that time scale.

Just out of curiosity, and because I’m nosy :-) I would like to know what plugs you guys use on a regular basis for your mastering chain. I know every track is different and requires different plugs, but there will be some that will be your go to plugs most of the time. Here are mine:

  1. FabFilter Pro-Q – HPF
  2. Nomad Factory – E-TubeTape warmer
  3. FabFilter Pro-Q – Main EQ
  4. Waves – MaxxBass
  5. Waves – SSLComp
  6. Waves – S1 Stereo Imager
  7. Waves – LinMB
  8. TRackS3 – Classic Clipper
  9. TRackS3 – Brickwall limiter

So these are the ones I use more often than not, depending on the track.

Just remastering and adding more formats is ok, you just need to add information about new files inside ZIP in item description before you submit the update of files. I’ve often edited my tracks adding mp3 format and looped version to the ZIP . And once I’ve even change the arrangement a bit, and still such changes were accepted by the reviewer. I think anything that improves the product is ok.

Thanks for the reply TJMusic, much appreciated. :-)

So would it be okay for me to Re-Master some of my tracks and replace the old ones using edit? The reason I ask is, I have recently finished a diploma in audio engineering and listening to my older stuff I’m quite embarrassed :bashfulcute: also my earlier stuff doesn’t have .wav files in the main zip, so I would like to address that as well.

This post has certainly grabbed my attention, I had heard about reaper, but never really paid much attention to it. I’m an ardent Cubase user, but I’m growing frustrated with it. The main thing with Cubase that bugs me is that it takes about 2-3 mins to fire up first time around and sometimes hangs when opening, even though I have a six core machine with buckets of RAM . So thanks to Tims impressive review I went and did some intensive research on Reaper. I’m going to download the trial and give it a go.

All I can say is “impressive” in the space of 10 minutes I downloaded, installed it, pointed it to my plugins folder and set up my midi keyboard. I’m amazed at the ease of use, couple of things though. I was surprised by the big white box that appears around every FX plugin, even those I’d paid $$ for. I see the purpose of it, as it shows the FX chain and presets so I suppose it actually a neat idea. It did crash once while scanning my plugins for the first time, this may be due to the fact I have tons of them, and some are not so stable. But on restart, it just flicked through them dropping out the crappy ones. Overall, I’m happy I saw this thread, thanks. This DAW is going to save $$$$ as I no longer have to upgrade to Cubase 6. phew :-)
