    In this video I show what my current approach on how to master a song. Even though I would never consider myself to be a mastering engineer, it isn't usual for me to send out a mastered version of my mix to the client.

    The purpose of doing this is to demonstrate to the client what their mix would sound like once it has been through mastering.

    I'm definitely not trying to go for perfection here but rather get it as close as I possibly can. It's really hard to compete with a mastering engineer who has dedicated their entire life to the craft.

    I also realize that this is probably a more expensive way to approach mastering your own song but also realize that there are many free options you can use that can mimic what I am doing. I just personally prefer the sound of my mixes going through the analog gear but that shouldn't stop you from making a great record!

    #24 How to Master a Track with FREE Plugins

    Depending on your role in a particular project, you may get to a point where you have to squeeze just a little bit more from the record. Even though I think that the final stage of mastering a track should really be left to a mastering professional, us mixing engineers can get a pseudo master ready for the client to listen to. If we can't get it to sound even somewhat competitive than chances are that our mix may seem inferior to everything else.

    In my first post on how to master a track, I showed a fairly minimalist approach on how I treat the master bus and to be honest I still approach it very similarly today. The difference with this track that I mastered is that I'm applying these plugins to a Two Track and not in the mix itself. I actually prefer to do any pseudo mastering in the mix itself just in case something sticks out that I didn't notice before. That way I can make tweaks as I go.

    That said, there are still some great tips here for those situations where maybe you don't have access to a full breakdown of the track like when you're mixing vocals into an instrumental.

    I chose to use VSTs for this article for a couple of reasons:

    1) There's so much great freeware out that I felt like I could get a better sound using the FREE VST's that are available.

    2) I wanted to show that even with FREE or cheap plugins you can get really good results.

    List of what I used:
    - FerricTDS (Variety of Sound)
    - Baxter EQ (Variety of Sound)
    - Volume Elven (Sir Elliot)

    I honestly don't feel like I could have done quite that same job using only FREE plugins in Pro Tools. I probably could have done something decent but for the most part the best sounding freeware is definitely in VST format. You could always try and use that VST to RTAS wrapper from FXpansion but from my understanding some VST's don't work when they are wrapped so there are no guarantees.

    So Let's Get into what plugins I used on this session.

    Our Objectives for Mastering a Track

    We need to have some objectives when we're mastering a track and since every track is different that means our goals will be different.

    In this particular case, I listened to the record a few times and decided what I felt needed to be done. For the most part I actually liked the tone of the record and didn't want to get too far away from the original sound. So with that in mind I determined that the track could come up in volume, could be a touch wider, could be a bit tighter sounding and could also benefit from a little more focus in the mid range. I used 3 methods to achieve all those goals: Limiting, EQ and some saturation.

    Each of those methods served a much different purpose but they also complimented each other. For example to get the track louder, limiting wouldn't have been enough and that's where the saturation complimented the limiter at achieving more volume. But at the same time the saturation also complimented the EQ in bringing out some more mid range focus.

    Tips for setting your final limiter for mastering.

    - Avid Pro Tools
    - FabFilter Pro-L


    This is going to be a follow-up to my mastering tutorial, it's all about setting the final limiter, which is probably the last step. A lot of times I am required to print the mix that will actually be the final mix sent to the duplication house and so understanding how to set a limiter is very important, it is going to be the final touch.

    Now, the key to setting a limiter is constant gained monitoring. What that means is that however much is being input into the limiter, the same amount is being attenuated on the output for monitoring purposes. This will give us a more honest perspective of what the limiter is actually doing to the sound.

    So let's check this out. Here we have the Fab Filter Pro L. We've got two little controls here, the gain right here and the output right here. These are going to be the two most important controls that we work with. And that's going to be true of any limiter. There's nothing more important than the amount of limiting being done and how we monitor it. Everything else that we do down the line is going to be used to fine tune that.

    So, what we're going to do is play the record and figure out about how much room we have until we hit our absolute peaks. And by the way, we're going to play the record from the loudest part of the overall song because that's where the limiter is going to start working the hardest.

    So it looks like, according to these meter, we've got about, maybe eleven decibels until we hit absolute peak volume. We're going to go a little bit further past that. we're going to find the point of distortion and then we're going to start backing it off. So let's say sixteen decibels. So I'm turning up the gain and turning down the output. And what we're going to hear is the signal hitting the limiter without changing the volume.

    Okay, so that's too much. The snare is getting totally flattened and there's definitely some pumping going on. So let's adjust it, let's back it off to maybe, let's try 13.5.


    So that's a lot more transparent. I think that that's probably a good level, even if the band asked me to push it a little bit more, we could probably push it without too much damage. IN fact, just for the sake of demonstration purposes, let's push it up just a hair more. Alright, great. So, now we're going to play it and here we get into the fine tuning aspect of things. So, not all limiters are built this way. For a lot of limiters, this is going to be all you get, which is actually the most important thing. You set it, you find the level where it sounds best, where it doesn't sound like it's pumping or distorted and you leave it go.

    But, we have a couple of other little tools in this. We have this advanced little section here, which has this style setting, a look ahead and attack and release. So these are all things that we can use to perhaps optimist the sound that we're getting. Okay, but what do we want to optimize? What are we listening for? Well, distortion, minimal pumping, and the most natural articulation on the transience. Those are the things that I think would determine the best sound.

    So, let's start playing with some controls. I usually input the transience first. Because that's usually the most distinct part.


    Okay, so what was all that? Well, the biggest thing that changed was when I changed the style mode, when I changed it to dynamic, the snare popped right back to life. So that was a big, right there, a big improvement. The other things that mattered were the attack and the release. For this style of music, it seems like the further this attack goes, the more crispness on the snare I get. So, I've got it pretty far, I don't really know how this corresponds to how the limiter is acting, it doesn't sound like it's clipping so, who knows? But anyway, I just set it and I keep listening for those transients and listening for the distortion, listening for the pumping and see what works the best.

    So the slower attack here and the very slow release seem to the best most natural and switching it to dynamic also seemed to preserve the sound the best. The look ahead function was a little function, so if I turned it too short the transient disappeared, but if I turned it too long the transient also disappeared, so that was weird. But, yeah, anyway, I got something that I like. I'm going to set this to default and now we can AB between what we just came up with and the default setting.

    Final Product:
    In this video David talks about why the secret of achieving a loud master is all about the MIX! Using different techniques involving saturation, compression, eq, limiting, parallel channels etc..
    He shows us one of his mixes as an example of a great mix with a great crest factor, and shows us how to end up with a mix that has the potential to get pushed to high RMS levels at the mastering stage and reach commercial levels without sounding squashed, overcompressed and distorted.
    But loudness shouldn't be left to the mastering engineer, shouldn't be left to mastering in general, a good, loud master comes from a good mix, with a good crest factor.
    While the loudness war is not as bad as it was before, we still need our mixes and masters to be loud enough to compete with the rest,
    using saturation and compression, limiting and gain staging here's a comprehensive overview on how to achieve a potentially loud mix, a dense mix which will be easy to bring up to commercial level at the mastering stage.

    An introduction to the mastering process. Learn how to master a song.



    When talking about mastering, it's very important to realize that it's basically just another level of mixing. It's solidifying the entirety of the record, ensuring that it translates, making last minute tweaks, things that you will want to see happen to the overall mix. In a perfect universe, you wouldn't be doing necessarily much to the master. Sometimes, you might be doing things to the master simply because the effect works better there, but in general, if it's to fix something, you usually want to address that in the mix. In fact, a really good mix does not need much when it comes to mastering.

    When I ask myself about mastering, I'm essentially asking the same question that I'm asking myself through the mixing process, which is what do I want. What do I want to hear? Is this good enough? Does something need to go back to the mix? OK. Here's my thoughts. First of all, I think that the mix is good. I'm happy with it. I think everything is sitting right. I think it's all good. The only things that I want to hear is I want to hear a little bit more brightness and pop to the overall mix, and I wouldn't mind if there was a little bit of extra sort of punch on the drums or some kind of homogenizing type of vibe, some kind of a compression vibe going for that kind of rock and roll sound. So, with that being said, what I'm going to do here is I'm going to pop in my outboard gear. I'm going to explain to you what I'm doing.

    The first thing that I'm going to do is I'm going to just show you what the sound sounds like when I start engaging all of my outboard gear. So, this is with no processing being done, just going through the actual sound of all the devices. So before After There's a certain nice little bit of saturation that I'm getting from my equipment that's giving me a tone that I like to impart over the entire mix.

    So, the first thing I'm going to do is... I sort of work it in reverse order. My signal chain here is an EQ to a compressor to another EQ. I'm going to do the final EQ first because the final EQ is just a very gentle treatment. I'm going to click it in right now. Actually, I'll do a before and after. One more time. Listen to the top end specifically. Before. After. That's the Clariphonic EQ. It's one of my favorite EQ's because you can add more brightness into something, somehow without changing the tonal balance of things. I don't exactly understand, like it's still a mystery to me how that's even possible. It kind of does that, and so I feel like I can kind of put it on any mix. I can just make things pop a little more without actually disrupting anything.

    Alright. Now, my first EQ. What I want to hear is a little bit more presence range. What I did is I sort of clicked around some different presence frequencies, and I ultimately found that 2.7 is the one that seemed to make it sing the most. I'm just going to pop that in real quick. This is just a two decibel bump, nothing else. Before. After. Didn't take much. That's just a two decibel bump at 2.7. Suddenly, the mix just popped out. That's cool. That's all that I needed. I don't think that it needs any kind of other EQ.

    Lastly, I'm going to engage some compression. When I'm thinking about compression, there's sort of two different ideas. It's a misconception that compression on the mix bus is about loudness. It's really not. In fact, a lot of times, you're going to lose potential loudness by using compression, especially in the fashion in which I'm using it. The way I'm using it is actually very slow attack, medium release compression. What that's going to do is it's going to cause the drums to trigger the compressor, but it's not going to cause the compressor to actually reduce the transient impact of the drum. In other words, it's going to make the drums a little punchier. And at the same time, I have the release time just right where it preserves air, but it also creates some kind of similar movement throughout everything in the mix. So, it's going to give it a little punch and a little bit of what people might call glue, but what I would call movement.

    What is mastering ?

    Mastering is the final step of audio post-production. The purpose of mastering is to balance sonic elements of a stereo mix and optimize playback across all systems and media formats. Traditionally, mastering is done using tools like equalization, compression, limiting and stereo enhancement.
    Basically, mixing is the step before mastering that involves adjusting and combining individual tracks together to form a stereo audio file after mixdown. The stereo file is then mastered, which ensures that the various songs are clearly polished and form a cohesive whole on an album.

  • Audio Animals Mixing Tutorial


    Order Your Mixing And Mastering Here :

    Audio Animals offer a professional mixing & mastering service by engineers who understand the clients needs. Select the service that fits your requirements and the amount of stems you require to be mixed. All mixing and mastering services include analogue mastering, which begins once the mix is confirmed as complete. Mixing is turned around in roughly 4-7 days.

    Online mixing and mastering is a process that allows you the client, to experience high quality professional mixing & mastering from the comfort of your own studio. No matter where you live, online mixing & mastering has never been easier to outsource to a professional mixing & mastering engineer. A choice of 5 different mixing & mastering options are available to choose from, depending on your budget and the amount of stems / channels you require to be mixed.

    Mixing & Mastering
    The complete package from start to finish. We begin in our dedicated mixing studio, where your music is mixed on our Solid State Logic console to perfection. Once completed your mix is returned to you listen to and go over any edits or changes. Once we are all in agreement that the mix is exactly as you want it, we move through into our dedicated mastering studio where your song is mastered and returned to you in all it's glory.

    For many reasons you may only want to have your music mixed and not mastered. While we recommend ordering mastering, we also understand the reasons why you don't. This service looks at mixing only and not mastering. Once the mixing process is confirmed as complete, we will print all versions of the mix including instrumental, acapella and PA, as well as if requested mixed stems in case you wish to edit the mix further at a later date.

    What Our Clients Say About Us

    Michael Maas When I look for someone to work with, I look for a number of things. Audio Animals ticked all the boxes. I needed an experienced ear to listen to my track and advise me on any mix issues. Came back to me with a list of good changes that made a hell of a difference. Was really helpful. Then when I heard the master come back I was blown away. I mean I knew they'd do a good job but they made my track sound better than commercial chart tracks.

    Jodi Thank you very much. I’ve just been listening to a side by side of the original master we had from the studio and your master and I can’t get over how big and bright and polished the sound coming from you guys is. Its very exciting!

    Phazer You guys do such an amazing job every time. Love the fact I can just send a track in and know it's in capable hands. Incredible customer service and communication throughout.

    Robert Owen You have opened my eyes to what is possible. I always knew my tracks were lacking something. Now I know all I need is a professional mix engineer to take my music to the next level.

    Dj Peshay If anybody wants to get their music mixed and mastered hassle free then I highly recommend Audio Animals. Very friendly, very professional, most importantly they know their stuff.
