Dear friends, thank you for sharing your experiences. From the “in the box” solution I was very happy with UAD precision mastering tools…it needs hardware, but also there is one multiband compressor that I can recommend, it is called DSM (dynamic spectrum mapper), have anyone tried that? I agree that a good mix is crucial, but good mastering is also important. Having a reference track is also a crucial secret:)

I think the UAD stuff is great ! .....yes expensive but good, i use the mastering series as well as the general plug ins, i also use alot of very good free plugs, cubase plugs, Korg, waves etc etc but i still feel if you get it right in the mix and you are happy with it, then that leaves very little work to do at the end…......and the last thing anyone want’s is an unbalanced mix to deal with.

Just my two pence worth :)

I generally write, mix and master at the same time to create the sound that I want, I then top and tail (eq wise) and burn a cd and play this on at least 3 different systems to make sure things are at the level I’m happy with, Yes it’s not the best way but I think it is all about what works for you and judging by what a few of you guys say…....... you do the same. I think it is whatever works for you is the best way, it’s what you feel comfortable about and as long as you are happy and the results are good that’s all that matters.

Welcome :)

My advice would be;

1. Listen to James.

2. Write some songs.

3. Then go to the pub :bigsmile:

I’m sure you’ll do fine, congrats on your first sale
