If you don't know what you're doing then save your money and pay for somebody else to master your efforts. Mastering is not a case of making something louder. It is so much more than that.

A dedicated mastering program is a must. A bundle of capable mastering plugin's is also a must. A definitive ear, knowledge, and experience, is an absolute necessity.

Well of course you can obviously. :frown:

But if you're doing it yourself then Ozone is the VST to beat.

I use a combo of IK's T-RackS to EQ, compress, & limit followed by a few of the Waves VSTs according to what needs to be done.

As Anisina said, you must rely on your ear. Bars, meters, lines, graphs - automated things like that will only tell you so much but you have to really be able to hear what the track needs. Ever wonder why a group of talented musicians aka a band would pay to have their tracks mastered?

Izotope makes some of "the best" DAW's & plugins on the market. Ozone is a very good program from what I've heard but I have no experience with it. Keep in mind that no robotic force is going to work magic on your music here in 2009 - but quality does count.

There are no easy answers to mastering like there are presets on an effects processor. Everyone mixes differently.

http://www.izotope.com/products/audio/ozone/

With mastering the thing i've noticed when trying it out is that basically the dynamics can either get it pumping or ruin it. For me at least.

I would seriously considering getting someone else to master it. There are online services that do it for as little as £20.

And for any unreleased track that would do wonders. Plus if you sent it to a label and it ended up getting a proper release they'd have it mastered somewhere proper anyhow.

Heheh my thoughts exactly


Seriously people.. forget DIY mastering. - If we're talking music to be sold or played in clubs anyway.
If your just doing music as a bit of fun or hobby then its fine i guess

May I remind you that this thread is about the best DIY mastering plugin, not professional mastering.

Like I said above, of course you can get better mastering than taking it on yourself. That goes without saying.

Well still you'd surely do better using s selection of plugins rather than an all in one like Ozone

Waves, Sonox, Universal Audio, Voxengo, Brainworx, TC Electronics and so on

If your doing it yourself thats far better.

btw not to be a c**t or anything.. but you do realise their is an already well established Stargazer with many Hardcore relases.
http://www.discogs.com/artist/Stargazer+(2)
I know him. Although he has moved onto another Artist name these days but it still doesn't sit well with me seeing someone else working in that same genre and using his name.

Ah I apologise. DJ Stargazer was an alias I was not really using anyway. I've been under 'HiBeats Productions' since the start of the year.

I've since changed my display name here.

About Ozone... I know at least one professional producer that uses it to touch up his mixes; so it's not a complete waste of time. I do see you're point about using various different plugins instead, though.

Yeah I think good mastering is more about having trained ears and good monitors than having advanced software.

I guess if you want to be a professional mastering engineer you should be using the best equipment you can get your hands on. Ozone probably doesn't cut it in that regard.

And I use FL Studio, not Cubase.

What I personally like about Ozone is that, although similar results can be achieved with a number of stand-alone plugins, Ozone makes the whole thing less complicated and puts it in one neat little package while still giving reasonable results.

+1 for Ozone

I have also tried T-Racks but I find it not as easy and seamless as Ozone.

T-Racks and Final Master are my favourite.

@ anisina
you're right but when someone does it just for themselves or for close friends it is easier to use some vst

Yeah, I agree.

If it's for promotion then hand it over to a third party. :)

Why do you use a VST 2 master?.. use VST's to produce the sound.. then link them 2 compressors and gaters..then use finilizers
