    My new song completed - need mastering?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I have just start reading about mastering and have been thinking of getting Ozone 3.

    Do you think it would do a lot on the music I'm working on? I've downloaded demo version, have tried some presets, but I gues it takes a lot of time to make a good master copy.

    I've been working on this song just for fun and have been wondering, should I do the mastering for induvidual instruments and the vocals and then the over all mastering or how is it done.

    Which presets should I use when mastering instruments, which mastering vocals, and which for over all mastering?

    I will post links for this song I'm working on, one just mixed verison, and the other "mastered" version, If I can call it that way

    Tnx for all the tips and advices!

    Your links don't work.

    Mastering is not applied to individual instruments, but across a complete mix.

    One of the main processes is to equalize levels from song to song across a whole CD so that people are not adjusting the volume all the time.

    The next thing is individual track processing. There isn't any magical preset that will always work.

    Good mastering houses have excellent speakers that reveal everything, placed in an environment that helps to simulate the real world where things will be played. The equipment they use is often "one of a kind" hand made to be as clean as possible. They also have a lot of other tools at their disposal such as mastering tape machines, analog compressors and EQ, very accurate sample rate converters and on and on.

    You can get ok results doing it yourself, but most people tend to lose perspective when it comes to the mastering stage of their song and usually apply effects for the wrong reasons.

    I think before you even think about mastering you need to work on the music.

    No matter what language it is in it sounds like a very bad karoke song with the vocals out of key a lot. Sorry to be blunt, but it needs a lot of work.

    Sorry about the terrible song, it's a parody to a balad singer here in Slovenia, so it must be this way

    Ofcourse it's in slovenian language so ... it sounds strange to you.

    Here is another one, (talking about a friend in music academy learning Contrabass) describing how he got there and telling him better to stop learning to play it ... )

    Since it is a parody it makes much more sense and I apologize. In that context it is done quite well.
