Thanx! Yes I know about the master bus solution. I have mixed for many years and all I need is a good tip on the mastering side. The reason I was asking was because even though the mastering process is a complex thing and you should work with a stereo-file in your DAW Ive come across people as yourself sitting at home and getting rediculous results only using the master bus solution.
Blockfish adds a slight amount of warm compression to even things out.
The glisseq adds lows and i cut some of the very highs because i felt the cymbals were too prominant. I used a harmonic exciter and eq on them and felt i over did it.
Izotope ozone adds more direct EQ (i cut below 34hz to tighten the bass) and i used the harmonic exciter and stereo enhancer to give it more width and depth.
Cubase Dynamics adds a tiny bit more compression.
Voxengo Elephant is my limiter, which is getting moderately slammed at +6db in.
On the mix stereo bus i used some tape simulation.
Various plugins on the drums most majorly paralell compression. Snare is quite heavily compressed.
I wouldn't recommend using a master bus solution as its completely different to mastering properly.
Hey man cool work on the remixes. It's nice to hear a promising talent compared to alot of shit you find all over the place today. You actually show that you have skills in arranging and stuff from a tonal aspect, good work! I was hoping you could help a brother out by giving some tips on what you used for mastering or if you just did a "master bus"-solution? Something tells me you didn't use a limiter due to the fact that the snare still smacks heavenly. So what's your secret for keeping all the smackiness and high output?
