When you compare your music to your favourite CDs, does it sound as good? Does it sound as loud, as clear, as punchy and exciting?

The difference could be compression. Or more specifically, the way that you're using it. And that's why I created Home Mastering Compression , to help you.

Skilfull, effective use of compression is the magic ingredient to achieving professional-sounding masters for your music. If you want: How do I know?

I needed help getting started, too. You could theoretically make your own, by running an audio signal through a crossover, dividing it into typically three or four frequency bands, and then sending each band through its own compressor.

Modern multiband compressors are available in both hardware and software formats. A typical multiband will have three, four or five user-adjustable bands. Compressing the audio in these bands individually can provide greater control over different elements in a complex signal—like a full mix—as well as offer better control over wide-ranging signals. Sometimes there are additional controls, or a slightly different layout.

Depth controls might be included, setting a limit for maximum gain reduction on only occasional very strong peaks, again to selectively avoid pumping. Some multibands also include upward compression, where lower-level signals are raised rather than high-level signals being lowered.

The result is still dynamic range reduction, but the processing is applied to the quieter parts, rather than to the more prominent louder portions of the signal. Naturally there are controls specific to multiband operation.

Each band may have a Solo and Bypass button. My brain is searching for ideas on how to improve the sound. What one can do with a single stereo file is very limited compared to stems.

A problematic example would be If the vocal was sounding muffled but the hi-hat was sounding piercing in the same frequency range. An EQ boost might help the vocal but the hi-hat presence would also increase relatively. A quick alteration in the mix will be far more effective than trying to make the best out of a bad situation in the mastering. The chain starts out with very subtle settings that I will tweak and adjust to suit the needs of the track.

I load my whole default chain rather than adding a plugin one by one because I believe the plugins interplay with each other to create the perfect final sound.

If I focused just on the first EQ then added a compressor, the compressor might level out my EQ work and be a backwards step from what I was trying to do. I might also push some frequencies in the EQ only to find out that they become harsh when the limiter is added.

You can read more about how I do this in this blog post. Once this is done I can proceed with shaping the track. Below is a list of possible changes I would choose to make with the parametric EQ during mastering.

Low Cut. The low cut will give me extra headroom to work with and tighten up the remaining bass. Low Mid Cut Hz.

The lead vocal is almost always centred in the mix in mono. Reducing Stereo Low Frequencies anything below Hz.Building an Audio Career.
