    Default What is the best mastering software out right now?

    Hi all im new to Crazy Pella and just wanted to ask a quick question. What is the best mastering software out right now? And how does it compare to others. I have wave lab but have no idea how to use it so im looking for something simple. Also i would like to find a third party vst that would allow me to see the spread when i spread a sound like with the FL stereo enhancer. Wave candy is ok but im lookin for something more accurate.

    Thanks in advance guys!

    i aint no butch vig or nothing but do you understand all of the mastering terminology like...idk..ratio...attack...compression...dynamic s...and all that? im studying it myself but the same applies i would think for whatever vst u r using.....i think ozone 5 is real good and it has all the components u need to master a song....and its easy to use....only thing i dont like is the power it takes up but i gotta dell so...

    i use this one vst called +matrix




    ozone has it but this uses less power..

    i use mainly the FL studio mastering equipment cause like i said it all does the same thing and i personally think fl is user friendly.

    heres astarting point for you but i think what ever daw u use its probably more than capable enough to master your tracks with the things that came with it already built in..saves power...hope this helps.

    Let Me put you on some game that I use on my beats to get them to sound live but steady.
    1. You get use Izotope 4 or Ozone 5. Ozone 5 is newer but I use 4 & selling beats in the industry.
    2. Then I add A plug in called T-racks for the eq and more compession.
    3. I use Izotope nectar for some threshold to amp the beat up to the max.
    There's a million other steps I use to master my beats up to a T but it would be to much to explain. Don't just take my word, Hear it for yourself.

    This is all info you can find anywhere on the net but ultimately everything is different so everyones "personal" experience is just that and won't help you in what your after. Ozone 5 is great software but what everyone failed to realise is that you have no concept of dynamic range so following advice from anyone on here is pointless unless you unerstand the basics. The same tools used in mixing are used in mastering, thus both must be learned before they can be applied in there respective fields.

    You want quick results use an ozone preset and tweek to taste, if you want to learn the right way ask a mastering engineer can you watch. That way you gain knowledge and insight to make you a better engineer/mixer.

    Get the waves bundles, and learn how to use them.
    No matter what program you use it only matter if you know how to mix.
    Knowing what to do in certain situations is key.
    The only thing that matters is that you know what to use and when.

    If you already have Ozone 4 you have a powerful tool for mastering. Ozone actually has an entire guide for using it to master that can be found here: http://izotope.fileburst.com/guides/...With_Ozone.pdf . Also as someone else mentioned above T-racks is a good all in one suite for mastering. Start out by looking at some of the presets in Ozone and see what the typical mastering chain is made up of. Then analyze what each individual item in the chain is doing. Send me a message if you want to discuss further.

    Hands down Ozone 5 is what I use, but if you don't have a proper monitoring setup you'll never know what you're listening to for your mix or master.

    Hi,

    Instead of using an all in one plugin for mastering we've found that we prefer to use separate plugins for limiting, linear phase EQ, compression etc.

    We've written an article about our software of choice and what we think is the best mastering software to use for each of these stages.
