Mastering Acoustic Band - Before and After

| Oct 4, 2007 | 3,097 Views | Share


I tracked this song, then the band took it home to mix it themselves, and then they brought it back to me for mastering.
For tracking info, see my Live Acoustic Band post.


Audio Clips

  • Mix (pre-mastering)

  • Same Mix after Mastering

    The mixed 24/96 WAV file was imported into Samplitude V9 and then run through the analog mastering chain listed below.

    Then I added some parallel compression on an Auxiliary bus with the UAD-1 1176N.

    We also added some slight tape hiss noise just to make it feel a little more analog. I put a Waves L2 on the master bus to increase the overall volume and lightly limit. The band is Canoe.
